I would like to say just returned from my stay at this friendly and lovely hotel.For what we paid just under £100 pounds for where it is located was excellent. Rooms were basic but there was all you needed. Breakfast was nice.I would like to say the staff were fantastic, at breakfast we were greeted with a nice smile and... 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

I was not pleased with this hotel. Not for the price we paid. Terrible bed, not very clean, no wifi as promised and simple toast and cornflakes for breakfast. I would maybe recommend it for one night if you are backpacking but only if you will get a good deal on the price.

I had a great time at this hotel. All I did was 1. Booked on VENERE website then 2. Payed the full payment at the hotel. Rooms are good for the price we paid. Amazing gardens very close and only a 3 min walk to the closest tube and bus stop. Break fast was okay and the staff were really... More

We stayed here in a double room for a few nights. Upon arrival, the place did seem a little strange, the atmosphere was odd - the guy at reception didn't look like he even worked there and he was having an argument with someone (we initially thought it was a guest but we later decided he must have also worked...
