I normally stay 300 metres away at the Barry House Hotel - it's very good and I recommend it.This time I mistakenly thought they were fully booked, so I reserved a room for one night with The St George Hotel via Booking.com, for the princely sum of £39. As it turns out, the Barry House had a room available for £42, but that's by the by.
The St George is located at the far end of Norfolk Sq, and is about 500 metres from the Underground at Paddington. The building is pleasant and the downstairs has the air of a waiting room, but it's crowded and there is no breakfast room or anywhere to "sit out". I don't think there are lifts in the building. The proprietor is extremely friendly, but busy
I was in a fantastic double room with a balcony window overlooking the square; the facilities were clean and reasonably modern, the bed was large and soft, and the coffee making facilities, wifi and satellite TV entirely adequate. I liked the room. Breakfast is delivered to your door and consists of a bread roll, fruit, jam, orange juice etc and was all of a decent quality
If the Barry House Hotel did not exist (or was fully booked) I would stay here again. However, all in all, given the facilities and cooked breakfast available just down the road for a similar price, I still prefer the Barry House.
Stay in the St George for a day or two and you will be entirely satisfied - is a perfectly ok establishment
