“Very good location. Staff helpful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Well located minutes to Paddington station. Great little pub and some indian restaurants around the corner along with shops along Praid street which is close by. Room small but clean and served our purpose well. Staff friendly. Would stay here again.

The hotel is situated in a very nice neighborhood in a typical row of equal houses. To describe the room as "small" would still be a compliment, but if you want a room with a decent size in London, you should be prepared to spend hundreds of pounds... Otherwise, the hotel is OK. The breakfast is good, although located in a very claustrophobic room without windows.

This is a reasonable hotel, close to everything in Paddigton. The rooms and bathrooms seem to be recently refurbished. The space is tiny, but it does not hurt basic dignity. The breakfast is good, try the cereal bar. The space is clean, and if you get a front window, despite the street noise, the view is pleasant.

Great location close to Paddington, and just a 15 min walk to marble arch.Nice and quiet aera. Pubs and restaurants just around the corner. Clean, but very small rooms. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Breakfastroom and the breakfast itself was very,very simple.

We were in London for two nights with a really hectic agenda. S priority for our hotel was a decent bed and peace and quiet. The Classic Hotel is situated in a really pleasant area wuith plenty of cafes and restaurants in the local vicinity. From the outside the hotel looks really promising. The steps up to our room were steep and narrow but fortubately the chap on reception carried our bags up for us. Our room and facilities were spotlessly clean - the bed really comfortabl;e and the flat screen tv of a generous size ! We even had clean towels each day. The down side was that the room was incredibly small and we had to pass each other with much breathing in. Yhe bed was a double and pushed up against the wall. The window opened onto to the road with much traffic which was a slightproblem. Breakfast was served in the basement and once again was cramped again.GHowever, the breakfast was much better than the promised ' continental'. All in all , the place appeared to have had a recent lick of paint, no dust to be found and the staff were really helpful.

Room Tip: Would enquire about the size of the room when booking to ensure that you have some space.

stayed here with 2 friends, for a girls weekend away in london. Hotel was easily found. Very friendly reception staff. Room was on 3rd floor up steep steps, no lift. So might not be great for a family. Our triple room was very clean, yes could have done with a paint but meet our needs. Bathroom is tiny but clean. Only down side i would say for this hotel is the tiny basement room that breakfast is served in. I was not a huge fan of the breakfast on offer. Cup of tea and bowl of cereal would be as far as i would venture. All in all, prefectly fine stay here. if you looking for clean basic hotel, in good location this hotel will meet your needs.

Room Tip: out room was at the back of the hotel, really quite which was great-

My husband and I checked in on 1st May 2013, having done our booking online. Our room was on the third floor - up a set of the really small staircase. luckily the guys at the reception carried our bags for us!

Breakfast was included in the rates and they were at the basement. so yes, there was a lot of huffing and puffing up and down endless steps each way.

The bathroom was the smallest I have experienced in any part of the world. everything was literally at arm's length. the toilet, sink and shower cubicle fit into an area around 4 feet by 2ft (i may be wring but it felt that tiny). to get into the shower cubicle, i had to inch my way in, careful to arrange my limbs go to in piece by piece (and I'm only 58kg, 5 feet 3in). you could not shut the shower cubicle without the door pushing in the shower head. if you bent over the sink to rinse your mouth, your bum would be pushing the bathroom door open - so make sure its locked! there was no way to towel yourself inside the bathroom as you could not swing your arms enough to do so. hence it was just a matter of patting yourself dry.

nonetheless, the service provided by Ali, Ahmad and another guy on duty was exceptional. They were extremely helpful, assisted in booking tours, and even offered rock buns as we walked in one day.

the location was a short walk away from Paddington Station, so that was a plus.

be warned. you need to be fit to traipse up and down all those stairs, and you need to be petite to use the bathroom.
