I stayed at the Shakespeare for the first time some years ago on the tip of a university travel agent. I felt it was good value for money then, and found it the same on a repeat visit. Only a block from the Paddington station, the hotel was well-situated for travel to the airport, central London, and trains out of... More

The room we had was not air conditioned and it was hot. We had to open the window for air but then is was noisy from people outside. The beds were not that comfortable. The bathroom had a bad odor to it too. The staff was super nice, the breakfast was good and the location was good as it was... More

Dear 901mom, Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is only through guests' feedback that we are able to gauge how they perceive our service and facilities. It is true that we do not offer air conditioned rooms and we are not advertised so; London is rarely that hot and unfortunately we were not well prepared accordingly.... More

The location of the Shakespeare hotel was key for us - an easy quick walk to Paddington Station was what we were looking for, the Shakespeare was perfect. Staff were welcoming and efficient, room was clean. We were on the back side so a bit noisier as we could hear traffic and trains, but the middle of the night was... More

We arrived in the morning, but the staff were very accommodating and allowed us to store everything in a locked room until it was time to check in. When we got to our room, we were surprised to find there were 5 single beds in it! We're only a group of 3. The room was really nice and had a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The perfect place to stay during your visit in London. Very nice neighborhood, a personal favourite, with nice cafes and restaurants. A very nice walk to Hyde Park is recommended or to Oxford Street for those shopping lovers, both are walking distance away. Rooms have been upgraded and there is always someone to help. The price is very low, for what you get, so be sure to check us out. ... more   less
