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

Ever since we plan our London visit , we noticed that the hotel reviews and the quality of the services are not the expected one. Our last minute pick was the Paddington hotel. We book it for an entire week. The hotel has a good location (between Lancaster Gate and Paddington tube station - 5 to 10 minutes walk to... More

Hotel was fairly basic, small, like most london hotels but served its purpose well. Room was clean and well maintained. Bathroom was tiny, in a small lady and all i could do in the shower was rotate. Only con was that the streets can get abit noisy despite it being located on a fairly quiet street. Overall, not bad.

As others have said, there are a lot of steep stairs in the hotel. The carpets on the stairs have seen better days. We did get a warm welcome and a comfortable compact room with a fridge and a safe. But for the price where else will you find such a bargain with a continental breakfast as well.

We stayed one night here during a long layover on the way back to USA from India. The rooms are quite small, but the linens and bathrooms clean, the room and facility tidy. Plenty of hot water, and we enjoyed a quiet walk in the nearby park in the morning before heading out to our flight. Free breakfast was adequate... More

We have just stayed here for two nights and other than the friendly staff and the location this hotel doesn't have much going for it. We were on the third floor (6 flights of stairs) rooms were shabby, really old blankets on the beds that need replacing and a window that appeared to let wind in even when closed! Place... More

tiny tiny tiny room... I was expecting the Paddington Bear to show up and claim it was his room! The location is really convenient, but I would not stay here for long stay. You shouldn't stay here if you don't like small environment.

There are lot of restaurants nearby. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpfull. The room was equipped with: fridge, fan, phone, iron, tv and safe. A Toilet and... More
