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

Great location, close to Paddington station and a few interesting restaurants, friendly staff, abundant English breakfast, clean -yet small- room and minuscule bathroom -rather cabin than room- Still, good value for money. My safe place when visiting London.

Clean room but bathroom is a bit small but its ok for London city centre. Breakfast is ok to get you started in the morning. Reception staff were helpful and pleasant. Many halal restaurants around the corner. Paddington train station is just about 4min walk.
