Very clean, small rooms, but it's usual for London, good place close to Padington, comfortable beds, good linen. Our room was on fourth floor, so with no elevator you can get here with two three stops on narrow staircase with your luggage. The check out at 10.30 is a little bit early, but at leadt you can leave your luggage... More

The Cardiff Hotel is situated on a quiet street facing a small park. In two minutes time, you are at the Paddington Station, bus stops and just a 7 minute walk to Hyde Park. It's close to Notting Hill and High Street Kensington, as well! There are countless restaurants, shops and points of interest in this neighbourhood. All of the... More

First, the location is fabulous. It is a very short walk from Paddington Station and is very easy to find. There is a little park right outside the front door of the hotel as well. There is no lift in the hotel. My room was on the 3rd floor, so carrying bags up skinny winding staircases for several floors after... More

First impressions cute, then had to manoeuvre through piled timber in the stairwell and luggage piled everywhere, with our suitcases up to 1st floor (thank goodness only 1 floor). Room clean but blanket on bed and spare not so clean looking. Shower so small you wouldn't want to drop the soap. In all good location but over priced .

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Cardiff when we first arrived in London. We arrived late at night and were pleasantly surprised at its close vicinity to Paddington Station. Virtually one block away and we were there at our destination. Beautiful breakfast included each morning in a lovely setting downstairs. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodation... More

I spent four nights at Hotel Cardiff with my two kids aged 12 and 17. The hotel is situated ideally in a peaceful, beautiful area, the nearest Tube station just around the corner. The centre of London can be reached in no time. Around the hotel we found nice restaurants with good food, small shops where we could buy snacks,... More

Just 3 minutes walk from Paddington yet on a fairly quiet green square, low-cost by London standards although you'd get a bed in one of the best hotels in Cardiff for the same price! Free WiFi and English breakfast (fairly basic) are included - these alone will set you back another £30 elsewhere! Friendly service.

We enjoyed our stay here in London utilizing their convenience to Paddington Station, the Tube and many fine places to eat, drink and entertain ourselves. The rooms were small but that's what you can expect in London. The price is right and having free wifi, breakfast and luggage storage made it a very good value.

We were a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) traveling to London for the first time for a wedding. The Cardiff was a perfect location for us to launch all of our sightseeing excursions. Being right near Paddington Station, we were able to take the Heathrow Express train round trip from the airport easily and cheaply. Also Paddington Station... More
