Location is couple of minutes walking distance from Paddington (use Heathrow connect to come from airport). The underground is there too. We prefer to use public red double decker to get to Westminster area, or Tower of London. It takes maximum of half an hour, but you are looking around at the city. The hotel is by railroad station. That... More

Short walk to Paddington Station and connections to tube, train, and bus routes. Hotel is a converted house. Rooms are small but comfortable. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is fantastic. Lots of restaurants nearby.

Close proximity to Paddington Station, warm rooms, clean beds and rooms clean enough. Staff extremely friendly and very helpful. The breakfast it's cooked to order and is in with the room rate. There are a few rooms with en-suites and are generally clean.

Booked 3 nights here on recommendation of a friend. This is an old Victorian row house that is not quaint or romantic, just cramped and uncomfortable. No A/C, no cross ventilation. Room was in back and left unsafe leaving window open, but too stuffy to not. What was reserved as a twin had a double bed. Left after 1 night... More

I stayed here for a week and hated every second of it. Although this hotel's location is ideal (just a five minute walk from Paddington Station), its dilapidated appearance, unfriendly staff, ugly rooms, and lack of an elevator are enough to make you move to the Hilton down the street. Although the breakfast was delicious, I found myself waiting fifteen... More

I categorize this as a nice bed and breakfast kinda hotel. The rooms are really small if you are booking the single room. If you are booking a single room, chances you might have to climb 4 floors to your room (no lift). The advice here is to pack 2 bags and leave the bigger one in the lobby. The... More

St David's Hotel is in a great location only a couple minutes walk from Paddington Station and Underground. I stayed here five nights in early June. St David's is a budget hotel so the rooms are small and the hotel is very basic, but clean and comfortable. The full English breakfast is wonderful. The best aspect of this hotel is... More

I have to say firstly, that this is not a 5 star hotel and I would love to meet the person who awarded it this rating! The hotel is on a par with many a three star hotel I have stayed in, but it has to be said that its tired, and in need or some serious upgrading/refreshing. The rooms... More

If you are looking for low, low budget, then this is your place. But, be prepared for the lowest standards. I came with a group of students. I could barely walk around the room. The rugs were so dirty, I wouldn't walk around in bare feet. The curtains were ripped. My window looked out over a dead end ally. I... More

We were here a few years ago and didn't hesitate to book again. Glad to report they're as friendly as ever and it's an incredible value. You get a full English breakfast on a quiet street conveniently located to Paddington and great restaurants. If you need a hairdryer, just ask at the front desk. Only warning is if you have... More
