Small pod style bathroom was diffcult to shower or wash in. Otherwise good service and good location if a little noisy facing the main street. Room was clean and well presented. Flat panel TV on the wall was small.

The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was more than acceptable. The hotel is in a quiet area but I was not able to take advantage of this as outside my room there were 4 noisy, industrial fans that were in action 24 hours a day. Worth the stay but check which room you... More

Hotel gave me a positive surprise even I got a small room in the cellar. Small rooms, and even mine was OK for one night. If you want a hotel close to Paddington this may be the one. We were 5 friends, the other had also OK rooms, clean and shower working. But all were small. It is 5 minutes... More

We were first given a room on the ground floor that felt like a poky, airless and claustrophobic cupboard, and we didn't want to sleep in a room on street level facing the street, so we asked to be moved upstairs. The next room was marginally more spacious, though tired and not particularly clean, but when we flushed the toilet... More

I certainly recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget needing to stay near Paddington Station. I stayed at the Castleton for one night in January 2014 and it perfectly suited my needs. I had a late flight into Heathrow and was taking a train from Paddington the following day, so the location of the Castleton made it ideal for... More

The bathroom was soooo tiny (not even small would describe it), only a submarine would produce such small space. A big person couldn't possible manage with it. And the worst thing, the pictures shown were fake, didn't show the actual thing. Thank G' we immediately found something much better and left after the first horrible night........

Stayed over night in a single room and couldn't have been happier. The staff were friendly and helpful, minding my bags before check in, and printing off my boarding passes. The breakfast was delicious. The bed was comfy and the room was very clean. New bathroom is great, and the shower was amazing.... One of the only hotels I've been... More

After researching many hotels in central London i decided on the Castleton and was pleasantly surprised! Perfect location, literally down the road from Paddington station and about 10 minutes to Hyde Park. Reception staff were lovely and very helpful. There were literally only two downsides: 1. we were on the top floor and the lift was broke (was fixed the... More
