Easy to find hotel with plenty of local amenities close by and very convenient to Paddington station and underground. Very friendly staff. Room not very big but for the amount of time actually spent in there it was adequate enough, plus the added bonus of air conditioning. Lovely, well laid out breakfast with sufficient choice to get you going for... More

You're in London, one of the most expensive cities in the world. You are located next to one of the major train/subway stations (with service to Heathrow Airport), with fast-food restaurants, pubs and convenience stores seconds away. The hotel actually has a lift (an anomaly in London for older hotels), and Air conditioning is another perk that isn't guaranteed elsewhere.... More

Very well located a couple of hundred yards from Paddington station. Well presented building with nice view from our (very small) room. Staff extremely helpful, breakfast more than adequate, pity the lift was out of order for our two night stay.

Ok, so the room was tiny - two single beds and not a lot of anything else and there is more room in a caravan bathroom than her HOWEVER, my son and I had a great night's sleep in comfy beds a stones throw from Paddington. Reception staff were lovely and made us feel very welcome. As we didn't spend... More

Stayed here in May, we had one triple and one double room. The rooms were small but clean and had a kettle in them. In the triple room the bathroom was bigger and more modern than in the double room. Beds were quite soft but after a day of sight seeing, sleep came easy. Windows were facing the street and... More

The hotel’s location is absolutely perfect, just one block from Paddington station… super easy access for the tube and Heathrow Express (15 mins to Heathrow). I lived in London for many years so I know my way around extremely well, and this location takes some beating, it’s fabulous. This is the third time I’ve stayed at this fantastic little hotel,...

A well-located, clean hotel room with good air conditioning, free in room wifi and breakfast included. Beds ok, small bathroom. For 2 nights a good budget hotel option in central London. Ideally located around the corner (2 min walk) from Paddington Station. The area seemed very safe and quiet (we stayed midweek) with plenty of restaurant/pub options surrounding. Ask for... More

I choosed this hotel due to it's location closed to the Paddington station. The adress is Sussex gardend but my room was practically on London street and I had to be with closed curtains all the time to avoid passing by people to look into my room. Actually it can't be described as a room, it was more like a... More

This hotel was booked because of its proximity to Paddington Station as well as to multiple tube lines.. Having stayed in London a number of times, location is paramount if you wish to avail yourself of public transportation and for this the hotel is ideal . The rooms are smaller than they appear in the photos. Closet space is minimal,... More
