Not really a hotel I would like to stay much longer. Standard is poor and our room was really really small and TV was broken. Area around the hotel is great , nice pub (Sawyer's arms just a few steps away). Would recommend not to have breakfast in the hotel, but in the little café next to the pub, it's... More

Do not book this hotel. Their customer service is non-existent. The rooms are too tiny for more than one person. The bathrooms are small and moldy. There is NO HOT water. The only redeeming quality about this hotel is its proximity to Hyde Park and Paddington Station. A one star is generous, but TripAdvisor does not allow a zero or... More

Just checked out this morning. The room was very small and very warm...however it was clean and comfortable. It is very central to everything with lots of nice restaurants to suit most budgets...the tube, Paddington station, supermarkets and pharmacies very near. If you are looking for an early night sleep don't expect to sleep early...a lot of street noise from... More

Arrived at the hotel and they said that maintenance was taking place and we'd have to go to Kilburn!!! Looking at other comments, this happens quite often! We refused to go and they begrudgingly gave us two rooms anyway, so it seems like some kind of scam. The room was clean and tidy - but very tiny. The bathroom was... More

I booked the So Paddington but they put me in 'sister hotel' in Kings Cross which was half the price but when I complained by email on my return they didn't even have the decency to reply and certainly didn't offer any compensation. Room I had didn't even have a window. I paid for a double room but the room... More

I found the rooms to be super small, and again, the same goes for the bathroom. It is definitely a tight squeeze. The breakfast is continental style only which was okay. The location is great as it is right outside the train station. The staff are friendly and the service was great. They were very accommodating when I asked them... More

I stayed here to go to a gig in Hyde Park. Great location at a good price so was ideal for my trip. The room was small and basic. It was a little run down but was clean and comfortable for a night. The staff were welcoming and friendly. If you're looking for a cheap hotel near Hyde Park then... More

Thank god we only stayed here one night. We were on the 4th floor, up 8 flights of stairs. There is no lift. Luckily we had limited luggage. The WiFi didn't work in the room. The shower was crap. In the evening we had short showers as the water drained away too slowly. On the morning of check out we... More

This was our first stop on a 4 week honeymoon. The location was perfect. We walked all over London (which is want we wanted to do) and caught the tube where needed. The station is only 2mins away. The room was very small but clean and very nice. The staff were so helpful and kind. All of them!! 😊 Highly... More
