“Simple accomodation but very clean and fab breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We booked this hotel based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. The hotel is basic but imacculate. Very clean, quiet and the breakfast included was cooked fresh and very tasty and the staff are very friendly. The beds were a bit on the firm side but not uncomfortable it was also a bit of a trek to our room which was on the 4th floor (no lift) but the hotel is very central just 5 mins walk from Paddington station which was ideal. The room didn't overlook gardens as advertised but none of them did as its about 4 doors down from Norfolk square so unless you are a crane you'd be hard pushed to overlook the gardens! Never the less that is not what we booked this hotel for and we will be coming here again.

Stayed one night in November, we had a double room on the top floor, loads of stairs some on narrow staircase, not a problem for us though, in fact adds to the character. The room was lovely & quiet with a view (to the side) of the leafy square down below, small but clean & perfectly adequate, small bathroom but again clean, perfectly adequate & functional. Great area, would definitely stay again. Staff helpful. Great value at £69, not so sure about the 'normal' price of £129.

We really had a great experience during out stay at the Avon in Sept. It was our first time in London and Anna, the proprietor, helped us in many ways. Our room was clean, quiet, pretty and very comfortable.

We had understood that the stay included a continental breakfast and were happily surprised to find it was a full English breakfast with eggs made to order and all the other fixings. It was delicious and the table settings were beautiful.

All in all we really enjoyed our stay and hope to have an opportunity to return. Thank you Anna and staff!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor so the lack of an elevator wasn't a problem.

Stayed here for 3 nights in a triple room with 3 girls. Was small, but we weren't in the room much. The stairs are brutal, no elevator! I had a 50lb suitcase, backpack, and purse. Location is awesome, right around the corner from the Paddington Station. Breakfast in the morning was very good (full english breakfast and you're able to customize if you want) and the staff was superb! There's nothing really negative to say if you're a tourist and are out exploring the city anyway.

We would stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location was great, a 3 min walk from Paddington Station, and a 5 min underground, ride to everything a tourist wants to see. The room was small but clean. The staff helpfull and friendly. Breakfast was good. On the negative side was that we had a double room on the 4th floor and as there is no elevator, you have to climbe all the 82 steps on a narrow staircase, so do not bring any large suitcases with you. The shower is small and the waterpressure wasen`t the best. The window diden`t shut tight, so it was a bit of a drught. But overall it is a good hotel with friendly staff.

We spent 4 nights at the Avon hotel and enjoyed our stay thoroughly: triple room on 3rd floor is simple but very clean, at times a little noisy with the life of London, staff amazingly helpful and friendly at any time, rich English and continental breakfast, and location is really excellent for getting around London. Wouldn't hesitate to book at the Avon again!

There is very mixed reviews about this hotel but dont pay too much attention to the negative ones. The hotel is in an excellent location with a Bus stop right outside the hotel and within a 5 minute walk of Edgeware Rd Station, the staff are very friend and the hotel was very clean.

Room Tip: The tube runs directly underneath the hotel so if you stay in the ground floor room you can hear it
