I chose this hotel via the internet and unfortunately, it was the wrong choice as the room was too small and suffocating for my wife and I to stay. The cold treatment given was just like the weather hence I can't hide my disappointment staying in this hotel.

This hotel is a good place to sleep, take a shower, watch a little TV, and rest between ventures out. There is no pool, fitness room, on-site restaurant or bar, so if that is what you want, don't go here. It is close to the Paddington and Lancaster Square underground stations, and there are restaurants nearby on Praed Street. I... More

Stayed in June at this hotel to visit Hyde Park. This is a 10 minute walk from the park. The rooms were basic enough and the breakfast selection was poor. We was looking for a standard cheap hotel which is what we got. No complaints.

Paddington Hotel? It is located in Bayswater on Gloucester Terrace and is about a 10 minute walk to Paddington Station and a 5 minute walk to Lancaster Gate Tube Station. Hyde Park and Kensington Park are also only a 5 minute walk away. The hotel has 17 rooms and is a four story walk up. Meaning that there is no... More

We stayed here for our December 2013 trip to London. The room was basically equipped (two small, but completely comfortable beds, wash basin...), but we didn't expect nor need anything else, because we were outdoors for the majority of our stay. The shared bathrooms were clean (I always chose the one in the stairway, because it seemed less frequented :)).... More

This was our first time to London and so after reading numerous reviews decided on The Paddington. It was very easy to find, though there aren't massive signs, and is only a short walk from Paddington station which can take you basically anywhere you want around London and the surrounding suburbs. The staff members were very friendly upon arrival and... More

We booked the last room in this hotel at the last minute and realised we were lucky to get a room at all in this location. It was easy to find and only a short walk from Paddington Station. We were greeted by friendly staff and given our room key, which was a top floor room. Like lots of Central... More

This hotel is very clean, but not as good as others around it. Bathrooms are nice and modern. Bed was uncomfortable. Comfortable and close to transportation to city centre and Heathrow. Staff very friendly. Overall good hotel, but have seen a lot better.

A beautiful Victorian-style hotel in the heart of London. Could not be more convenient to the major sights of London. Next to the Paddington Tube / Rail Station. Friendly staff, clean rooms. No complaints whatsoever.
