We stayed here for 7 nights in July in hot summer weather. The hotel did not have air conditioning or a fan. Even having the window open did not help cool the room off at night. The bathroom had one small fan and after 3 people had showers the whole room was like a sauna. This is a good basic... More

Dear ptcruiser62, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate your comments and would like to say that unfortunately these historic buildings in Paddington are not allowed to have air conditioning installed as it would damage the outside building structure. As this is out of our control due to listed building laws, we provide fans free... More

This hotel is for those who came to discover London and do not want to spend money on luxurious hotels. Indeed the only advantage is the location. Close to Paddington Station, Hyde Park and ten minutes walk to Marble Arch. Declared home made English breakfast comprises of one fried egg, one slice of fried bacon, one small sausage and a... More

This hotel was perfect for what I needed it for. I just needed a base for my belongings and a place to sleep. I was out most of the time sightseeing. It was central, basic and comfortable. Extremely close to Paddington Station and much cheaper than other places around the area. I have no complaints. I was here for 9... More

I stayed at Chrysos Hotel for three nights just about a week ago and it was fantastic. I have stayed at various London budget hotels before, and this was probably the best value for my money.

Very nice and friendly staff both at the reception and breakfast room. The hotel room I stayed in is very clean and has all the facilities I needed including a good pressure shower and new towels as well as free tea and coffee facilities. Good value for money and I would stay here again.

What an awful hotel. I stayed there at a cost of £165 for one night. I selected a double room when I booked but was provided with a triple single room. The room was dirty, there was rubbish left of the bedside from the previous occupant, the tea making facilities were dirty too. As a result I wasn't sure if... More

I stayed in Chrysos with a friend and will surely return there. Location was excellent, it was very close to Paddington Station and also Lancaster Gate Tube station. There were many nice restaurants and pubs nearby. Breakfast was nice, so were the room, the bed was very comfortable and it was nice and warm in our room.
