Stayed here for one night. Firstly I will say that when we arrived we couldn't find the hotel because it is named 'metro hotel' from the outside and there is no indication that it is 9a. When we arrived we were placed on the 4th/5th floor and the stairs were incredibly steep which wasn't ideal as we had a lot... More

Booked a double room for two on a Saturday night. Hotel is quite central, but away from the hustle and bustle. Our room was clean, bed comfortable, the service was good and breakfast was very decent. Our room was road facing and despite the window being opened and it being a Saturday night, we had a good nights sleep. Yes,... More

I met up with a friend for a meal before he flew back to Oz, and as I had an event in north London the following day I decided to stay here overnight, somewhere seemingly cheap and cheerful. The single room was very small, and had just a 2'6" bed! It was stifling hot, and the small high level window... More

Stayed in the Craven Hotel for two nights for an event at the Royal Albert Hall. The location was brilliant, only a short walk away from both Lancaster Gate and Paddington Underground stations, as well as being within walking distance from Hyde Park, The Royal Albert Hall, Westminster and Buckingham Palace. On check in, the staff member was a little... More

This Hotel was very reasonable as it is a short ten minute walk to Oxford Street and Marble Arch. Hotel was clean and Staff very welcoming. Breakfast is included and although basic was enough and you could ask for more if needed. I personally will use this Hotel again when visiting London as I think good value for money.

Good location, just 5 minutes walk from the Paddington railway station. Quite regular rooms, but bedbugs!!!! Really! Thought it didn't exist in modern Europe... Avoid hotel breakfasts, you can find much better in the city

Pros: The location is excellent, 5 minutes' walk fro Paddington Station. The room is a little on the small side but comfortable for one person--bigger than I thought it would be for the price. It was immaculately clean, which was welcome. Free wifi was nice. I found the front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great value. Cons:... More
