I am writing this review on behalf of my granddaughter, who at the moment is sat beside me crying as she tells me about this Hotel which should be called a slum. Her boyfriend wanted to surprise her at the last minute with a birthday trip to London to see a show, so this was booked quickly via Late bookings.com... More

First of all...if you have any mobility issues, a pushchair or a lot of bags, this motel might not be right for you. The motel is located at the top of a steep flight of stairs. Someone with mobility issues would have no way to get up the stairs and there is no elevator. The person at the front desk... More

Stayed at Room 6, a room with 3 single beds. The mattresses have already seen its time. The springs have sunken and the duvet are dirty and worn out. You will get back ache after sleeping there for two days. Hopefully you did not roll off from your bed! :-) Good point - Hotel is just a stone's throw away... More

Matro hotel was absolutely ok for the price. Very friendly staff, room was clean. About 1 walking minute from Paddington Tube station, perfect for backpack sightseeing tourists. I would not recommand taking children to this hotel due to the loud location. Also there is plenty of little restaurant (with great prices) and pubs next to it. Overall absolutely ok for... More

Central location close is the best thing about this hotel. On arrival me and my partner were forced to wait for 40 minutes to enter the building as the hotel had been left unstaffed during check in hours. When the staff eventually arrived he was extremely unapologetic and didnt seem to know what he was doing, very disorganised and not... More

Metro hotel very well matched my requirements, the requirements of a sightseeing tourist – Close proximity to a well connected train station (Paddington in this case), decent ambience, courteous and friendly staff making the stay a pleasant experience, clean rooms and bed, sumptuous, packed and sealed breakfast with the flexibility of availing the food the previous night enabling a quick...

Very Nice Hotel, small rooms, very nice Service. Ideal to spend the night when you visit London for sightseeing or business. Breakfast is not very tasty, but practial because everything is packed and sealed. So you can easily grab it and take it on your day out in London. No Lift and lots of stairs, but water heater in every... More

Due to late booking issues, I did not have much of a choice when I was searching for hotels/B and Bs around Paddington station. I was able to book a room with shared bathroom at the last minute. Before booking, I had checked out the reviews on tripadvisor, and found that although there were bad reviews, there were also many... More
