Hotel is average. Location is pretty good with Metro and bus within 5min walking (also night bus). No lift and lots of stairs. Room is quite small, but clean and with shower plate. Breakfast is standard and breakfast time very reduced (I'm not sure anymore but it think it was from 8 to 9.15). They allowed us to leave our... More

We had a very large room with a bathroom, everything was clean and new. The staff were very helpful if we needed anything. Overall we had a great experience, staff were very helpful and for the...

We had a great night at the caring hotel. The staff were very friendly, everywhere was clean and tidy, breakfast was simple but lovely and the location was great. We didn't have our own toilet which I was worried about but it really didn't matter, there seemed to be one for every two rooms and it was extremely clean. A... More

I have stayed three nights, in a single room with queen size bed. Service was spotless, very nice and helpful people. Room was large enough and sunny, and quiet. BUT: The bedlinen and sheets were old, worn out and stained with dirt. The NEVER replaced the bedlinen (I could have asked, but I assumed they would have changed it after... More

I stayed at the Caring Hotel for a few nights as a break with my girlfriend. The hotel is extremely easy to get to from Paddington Station, which is also handy for when you are going out and about as it is a great place to get to other places when using the Underground. The staff we had dealings with... More

I stayed at the Caring Hotel for 8 nights, for business. The hotel is ideally situated near Paddington, Queensway and Lancaster Gate Station's, making it suitable for business travelers and families alike. The staff were very friendly and customer service oriented. Although the rooms for the most part are sparse and small in size, the hotel provides great value for... More

Overall not a bad place. Positives: all staff are friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious (for London). Negatives: Breakfast was fine but extremely basic (no yoghurts or pastries). Bed was uncomfortable and could feel the springs in the bed. The only other negative thing was to do with our neighbours who were very noisy coming in late at... More

Reading trip advisor reviews, I have been struck by the not surprising fact that the hotels for which one pays exorbitant amounts of money get the very best reviews. Most reviewers can't afford the inflated prices that luxury hotels charge. It seems to me that it would be much fairer to judge a hotel on the basis of what you... More

We stayed at Caring Hotel for seven days over the holidays. Our room was for three to four people and was located on the second floor. For the price and location of this hotel, I believe it is an OUTSTANDING value. The rooms are basic, clean, and private. Our four person room was very large, as large as any American... More

Great location a few blocks north Bayswater Road and Kensington Gardens. We had a basement room down the hall from the breakfast room and found it spacious and clean. Private bath was quite adequate. Staff was very accomodating. Breakfast was good basic food to start the morning - cereal, toast, coffee. We could walk across the garden to the Victoria... More
