We were moved here after an over booking at another hotel and we were sorely disappointed. After a very long hard day at work we found this place checked in and went immediately out to get some dinner. We couldn't stay in the room a minute longer than needed. The tv didn't work, most of the lofts didn't work, the... More

Attending an event at Lancaster Gate and required cheap, safe and close hotel - achieved all three aims. Paid £67 for the night. Yes a small room with single bed but shower worked and they did provide tea making facilities. TV is located above the door - out of harms way but also out of any possibility to reset the... More

We had a one night stay here. Room was extremely small with no window apart from one which was blocked off in the ceiling!!!! The kettle had to be plugged in on the floor as no sockets on the shelf. We asked for an extra pillow but was told there were none!!! Breakfast which was £5 was value for money.... More

Absolutely shocking. Avoid at all costs!!!!! The only good thing to be said is it's location and that's it. The room was like a storage cupboard and housekeeping left a lot to be desired. Never never again. You are so much better off paying the a higher price for somewhere that is at least habitable

I booked this hotel b/c it was our last night after traveling throughout England and Scotland. It was cheap and super close to Paddington station where we'd be catching the Heathrow Express. I didn't expect it to be as nice as to the hotel by Kensington Gardens where we'd spent the week before but I didn't expect it to be... More

We stayed for one night as attending a gig in London. The location is central, 5 min walk from paddington station. We had a double bedroom which was small but compact with a wardrobe, dressing table, kettle, fan, toiletries and a flat screen tv. We had no issues with the bed an both had a normal nights sleep. The window... More

Let's set the record straight on this one, there appears to be some really mixed reviews. The place is really dated, the rooms are tiny, the wifi doesn't reach the rooms, and the bed's are well past their due date. But you know what, for the price, it's totally fine. It's the cheapest place I could find in zone 1,... More

I booked a single room at quite short notice and was very satisfied with what I found. Although the room was very small, it had everything I required, including ensuite shower room and wardrobe. It was in a good area, just a short walk from Paddington Station and I got an excellent night's sleep. The room was clean with a... More

The temperamental elevator, cramped public areas, corridors and room, lack of sufficient power points, missing bathroom fixtures, stuffy, poorly ventilated, noisy room and terrible value for money (even at London's rip-off rates) make the Gresham a hotel to avoid. There are other hotels nearby that look far 'fresher' and are closer to Paddington station.
