A good experience as we were traveling for both business and personal. Our room was well located, comfortable, clean and taken care of. This is a good honest hotel that says they don't have wifi out of concern that the signal might be poor in rooms vs. public areas when they actually have and it worked great. A very sparse... More

Although looking in need of updating, the room was comfortable and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. They are in the process of rebuilding a property across the road from the hotel, so I would imagine, once that is done, they will do the same to this place. But don't be put off, it's in easy walking distance of Lancaster... More

With its central location, budget price and excellent transport links it is easy to see why the Paddington Hotel won Trip Advisors' 'Travellers' Choice Award'. We regularly stay at this hotel when visiting London and have never been disappointed. The hotel offers excellent value for money and the positive aspects far outweigh any of the negative comments from some other... More

There are a lot of stairs we were on the 3rd floor which was more than a couple of flights! You also have to return you key when you want to go out. The room was not too bad and it was clean. There was no duvet on the bed just a thin sheet, to compensate the heating was really... More

Best thing was the location just a few minutes walk from Paddington train and underground station, souvenir shops and restaurants nearby. Quite shabby and shower fixed on the wall and water easily wrong aimed. Bed was comfy but blanket was dirty. Floor squeaking and well the so British wall to wall carpet is warm under the feet but! Kettle and... More

Once you fly into London and are amazed by the grand scale of the British capital and you take a 15 minute train ride into Paddington, you will find London to be quite lovely. The architecture is nice and tall, the people aren't displeasing to look at and the pubs aren't too dangerous during the day. Now. Take a look... More

Ideally located, lovely rooms and excellent value for money. I enjoyed the included breakfast and they even let us check in almost two hours early, for which we were very grateful. I highly recommend this hotel.

Hyde park is a 5 minutes walk from it. we had the option to choose our room and we stayed at a big room on the 3rd floor. Unfortunately there was no elevator. it has a basic breakfast nothing much. The staff were... More

I stayed at the Paddington for a night this week and did not regret my choice. The room (no 11) was at the rear of the building, and so was extremely quiet with no traffic noise whatsoever. The bed was as comfortable as any I've ever slept in, with crisp white sheets and a lovely fluffy blanket, a nice change... More

Decided to book this due to the convenient location and price and I wasn't too worried about plushness. The hotel itself has seen better days as its a bit tired. Having said that the room (No.11) was very clean as was the bedding and the tea making facilities were good with milk in the fridge. The curtain on the window... More
