Of all the places I stayed in Europe for 10 days this was the worst. I am not sure where to begin. Food was ok. The eating area was very small and you had a long wait. Rooms/ bathrooms were poorly cleaned. There is no lift ( I did already know that). But be prepared for a work out if... More

What brilliant customer service! The kind reception and very helpful staff really made an impression on me and because of this I will make this my new London base for the 6 - 8 times I come for work each year. It's very close to Paddington station with lots of places to eat close by and easy access to the... More

As with 2 other reviewers on this site, my reservation was also taken but when I checked in, I was informed that there were no rooms in the Avon and was told that I would be staying in another hotel (St David's) just down the road! Disgusting hotel with nice reception staff. Do not get suckered into this scam.

I stayed in Avon for 2 weeks and this was the most weird hotel experience I ever had. The positive sides of this hotel are its location very close to Paddington railway and underground stations, nice staff and the full English breakfast served every morning. But that's practically all the good sides of this hotel. The hotel has no lift,... More

Situated in Paddington right next to St. Mary's hospital it was a great location for our family to catch metro, find great restaurants close by, but even better were the public bus lines that ran close to hotel to many spots around London. The hotel is old as with most things in Europe, but family owned. The breakfast supplied was... More

First the hotel lost our confirmation, need to call them back with this. Then, as other travelers, we were informed we needed to go to a different hotel. Had a bit of a mix up checking in as the name on the reservation had also been changed. However, once we did get to our room it was fine, small but... More

Can't say much about the Avon Hotel, as I only saw the lobby. Semi-shabby. They were over-booked and moved me to the worst hotel I have ever stayed in outside of Mexico, a block away called the Park. I had booked the Avon well in advance. 167 pounds I paid for the worst possible mattress, where one could actually feel... More

This hotel was great for me personally. While the rooms were quite small and average looking, it did the job! It's location was fantastic for getting around and the general decor was charming. The staff were pleasant and accommodating. The breakfast provided in the morning was lovely and when i retired to my room, i was able to watch a... More

Just around the corner from Paddington. A little dated. My room was on the 4th floor, be careful if you have a problem with stairs, no lifts. Friendly staff and breakfast was excellent. Bed was very hard and seemed like two singles pushed together.

Arriving in London jet-lagged after travel from the US, we were pleasantly surprised to find out just how close the Avon Hotel is to Paddington -- even with three rolling suitcases, it was a quick, easy 5-minute walk just around the corner. The staff was friendly and attentive, apologizing that we were on the fourth floor with no lift. They... More
