“Super convenient, yet comfotable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I chose this hotel beacuse of strategic location on Paddington station. I must have made record by being in my room 50 minutes after our plane touch the ground at Heathrow. The location is perfect on Heathrow expres which runs every 15 minutes and take you in 15 minutes to the city and also on several tube lines. Hotel has direct entrance from train station where you can also fidn lots of shops, restaurant and pub. The same is valid for the surroundings. I really enjhoyed the location despite the traditional train station neighbourhood.

Hotel itself is just Hilton, fast checkin fast checkout, standard room, clean, safe. No noise from trains itself. Breakfast was below average for me, would be disappointing if I had to pay extra for that. There are many Hiltons in London and you simply have to choose one. There is Hilton metropole just 400 metres from this Paddington one. So if you need business hotel with short distance everywhere, not willing to pay high price for super location and want to get London feel, stay here. I will recommend it to my colleagues going to London.

Stayed here after walking out of the hotel my company put me in was a bit on the pricey side but worth every penny Staff where all friendly polite and helpful. Bar staff were really nice. Room was big spotlessly clean and every facility you would expect in a top London Hotel

Only moan would be the cost of breakfast £21 for a fry up is over the top when you can get a full English cooked to order in Paddington station for under £6 which is much nicer than even the best buffet breakfast.

That said I would certainly stay there again as the room was good value just food and drinks very expensive.

I've stayed several times at this hotel and always been generally satisfied. Convenience to Paddington Station is excellent and the hotel staff are always happy to store guests bags (either before check-in or after check-out) which makes it easy to get extra London visiting hours into a travel schedule. Access to pretty much anywher in Central London is easy and quick by taxi or tube, both of which are accesible on-site.

Modern and well equipped hotel in an excellent location for Paddington and Heathrow Express. We found a really good deal through a third party website, making it a great stay. Entrances to the Street or Paddington Station giving a number of breakfast options if you don't fancy the formality of a Hilton sit down brekkie.

Entire hotel needs to be renovated. inroom dining choices also needs to be expanded for all hours. the nightclub located within the hotel (entrance to the nightclub is through the hotel lobby) needs to be changed. Clientele the club receives makes the hotel seem to be unsafe. - close proximity to the train station is a plus, but even at that, would not recommend at this time.

Dear Cynthia B
I was sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. The Hotel is styled in an art deco design and has nearly completed a full renovation in this style. I am unsure as to what you may not have liked about the design of the rooms, but would be happy to discuss this with you at anytime. Kind regards Mark.

It's in a convenient location for Heathrow and as its within Paddington Station and therefore easy for the Heathrow Express. Other than this there is nothing special about this hotel. Rooms are what you'd expect for the price you pay, food again is what you'd expect. All in all the hotel is what you'd expect of the rate, standard and brand but I didn't feel it excelled in any way. No leisure facilities to speak of.

Really, the only reason to choose this hotel over the hundreds of other hotels in London would be if you want to be at Paddington Station. In terms of hotels there are better hotels for the same price with a wider range of facilities.

On a final note, the porters at the hotel did the old trick of watching you carry your cases across the entire hotel, through double doors and then swooping in as you got to reception to see if you needed help. My advice to management would be to stop them all crowding around the door chatting and actually offer help to guests at both main doors to the hotel. Swooping in for a tip when the guest has done all the hard work isn't on.

Dear JUDITHbristol
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay with us. I was obviously disappointed to read about your experience of our porter service and I apologise for this. I have spoken to the team about the need to identify guests early, but on occassion it can be hard as we do get a few travellers coming through the Hotel from the Station with their bags and this can confuse my team sometimes. Still, it is there role to ensure that they assist where possible and it did not occur on this occassion. Despite this experience, I do hope that you will return to visit us again. Kind regards Mark
