We arrived at Paddington Hotel aware that we would have a smaller room - all we needed was a comfortable bed as we would be exploring London all day, and would crash at the end of each day! We found a clean, comfortable room with all the facilities we needed (tea/coffee facilities, a safe, hairdryer, a bathroom and a comfy... More

Great location between Paddington Station and Hyde Park, just around the corner from some lovely restaurants. A little shabby but clean and comfortable with helpful staff. I was on the top, fourth, floor, with no lift. Staff carried my bag up, but it was a bit of a grind.

The hotel is only few blocks from Paddington station, which has direct train access and link to airports. Also, it has many tube stations and also hop-on and off tour bus stops...So location is prime. They also provide free breakfast (pretty much regular sliced bread, some cereal, little bit of fruit and some packaged croissants with tea and coffee so... More

Room was quite small, bathroom was ok but was very small. Room had a fridge, tv and heating that all worked and was cleaned daily. Breakfast was basic continental. No lift so lots of stairs but that's typical of London hotels. Good location to Bayswater, Notting Hill and Paddington. No wi-fi in room!

I chose this hotel mainly because of location. It is in Paddington, obviously. 300 mts from Hyde Park, probably my favourite place in London. It is a typical victorian house, but a little bit careless. The mattress in the room was very soft, and WiFi was very poor, unless you walk down to the lobby. Breakfast was regular. Near Tube...

Stayed from Feb 4 through the 10th. Entrance and stairwell a little worn. Room just basic 1 bed and en suite. Got a bad hip and ended up on the third floor (US 4th floor), but by the end of the trip, I think I was in better shape. Mr Singh at reception was extremely nice and helpful. No room... More

Nice spacious clean rooms. Basic bathroom but had hot water. Breakfast was basic, one of the breakfast ladies was very rude on our last morning and she started tidying up 10 minutes before breakfast ended at 9.30 and was throwing us looks because we came down to breakfast at 9.20, she never spoke to us or asked if we needed...

for 4 days we stayed at The Paddington Hotel. It is a very basic hotel, but all you need is provided. Well, except an elevator, which is rather unconvenient if you're room is on the 3rd floor and you come back in the hotal after a day of walking all over town... Breakfast is included, yet again very basic. The... More
