I stayed here when traveling solo for a few days in London and didn't want to pay a ton for a hotel and it worked perfectly for what I needed. The location is great and you can easily and quickly get to all parts of the city from here but it is very basic. The rooms and bathrooms are tiny... More

It was a shame but it was the smallest hotel room ever, the staff are all lovely and very friendly, we asked if they had bigger rooms and they said yes on other floors, so perhaps top tip is to check the floor you are going to be on and avoid the 4th floor. The place was spotlessly clean and... More

This hotel is perfectly located in a safe, walkable neighborhood 2 blocks from Paddington Station. Restaurants and shoppes nearby, the Underground and Heathrow Express make this a great location for visiting London. Be warned, the rooms are very small and spartan. But clean and adequate. Clean, tiny bathroom with good water pressure and seemingly endless hot water. Full breakfast daily.... More

We moved here at the last minute due to the other hotel we had booked not having disabled access. I can't compliment the staff enough, every one of them that we encountered was friendly and helpful, it really helped us enjoy our stay. Breakfast was basic english breakfast, nice bacon and sausage with toast and coffee brought to the table.... More

I stayed here, because me and my sister wanted to extend our stay in London and we had limited options to chose from. We chose this hotel, because it's located near Paddington Station. It's really a two minute walk (walk out of the station, cross the street and just basically walk straight forward, you can enter at nr 22). The... More

Castleton is actually converted from an old Victorian house located at Sussex Gardens along a row of other small / boutique hotels and is really near the Paddington Station and Heathrow Express. There are also many small eateries just outside the hotel. As I shifted to this hotel from a 5 star hotel just to be closer to the station... More

Old Victorian house converted into a hotel (as many around Sussex Gardens) with a familiar environment and a good service. So near from Paddington Station, for good communication with airports and subway. Also near the Lancaster Gate subway station for more metro lines. Not a hotel near many interest sites (but Hyde Park), you will need to get a transport... More
