Stayed here for one night after an afternoon at The Ginstitute. It's in a superb location close to Paddington Station with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby, and very reasonable at £105. Our room on the 1st floor was clean and very quiet, with bare board flooring and a tiny shower room. Breakfast was ok. A minor issue was not... More

I stayed here for three days in April. I arrived around noon, and even though it was a few hours before their stated check-in time, they made sure to get my room clean and ready for me as soon as possible once I arrived. That was a nice first impression! I stayed in room 14. It was very small, just... More

The position of this hotel is perfect! Just outside the underground station of Paddington. Rooms were small but cosy! Breakfast was ok, Not much choice but OK! Free Wi-Fi. The ladies at the reception were so kind and helpful. The gentleman that did the evening shift always looked pissed when we asked for info or help! Outside the hotel there... More

I stayed at the Cardiff Hotel during a 4 day vacation trip to London. The location is amazingly convenient. If you fly in from Heathrow, the Heathrow Express takes you to Paddington station and the hotel is literally a 2 minute walk away. Also, the Paddington station Tube brings you to some of the best parts of London really easily!... More

I've just returned from spending 2 nights at the Cardiff while on a mixture of business and pleasure in London's west end. This hotel is excellently located on the quite Norfolk Square just 5 minutes walk from Paddington Station giving easy access to the underground and in particular the Bakerloo line. I arrived early via over night sleeper so rocked... More

In London on a last minute trip and found it was too late to get home so tried this hotel as it had vacancies. Well worth the stay £68 per night including breakfast. Clean, tidy hotel with very helpful staff. Defiantly well worth a visit when in the Paddington area.

the entrance is brightly lit, gives a very welcoming feel. multiple interactions with different receptionists as we had a returned trip and left some luggages behind. They are all very helpful. Breakfast is the same everyday but it's delicious so I enjoyed my food. Room is decent sized for the price and location. Most important to me, the rooms are... More

I had been slightly worried but some of the comments on TA but the hotel was first class the staff were friendly and as I had a ground floor room I did not have to climb many stairs. The room was spotless and the breakfast was adequate. Some of the internal plumbing was a bit noisy but it was fine.... More
