Nice place to stay for short term holidays or weekend. We we're living in level ground double bed room with windows to the stairs on the street. Before coming to hotel we we're not informed about the floor, what was a suprise. Unfortunately due to stairs view, there was no day light at all. Also, I would advise to work... More

We got totally bitten by bedbugs....and they were crawling around on our luggage. Terrible stay. The reception did not seem particularly concerned by this. Noisy hallways--I guess people were walking around all night, banging the fire doors shut. Decent location, but not worth the bed bugs.

Friendly welcome from staff on arrival it was just a one night stay, decent breakfast which was included in the price. A lot of internal building work going on which it did not say anywhere on booking website!!! Situated on a nice quiet street, handy for Lancaster park/Kensington Park literally at the bottom of the street. Clean, very small bathroom... More

Nice hotel quite close to London center, small rooms and one of the beds was a sofa.... So not the best option. The breakfast small variety but still everything acceptable! The worst, not elevator and no lockers to keep the luggage before to enter the room

We stayed at the Craven Hotel for 3 nights when we first arrived in London, England. This was our first time to London traveling from Kitchener, Canada. We chose this resort based on trip advisor reviews and mainly, the price. It seemed to be the most affordably priced hotel, in a good area of town, that was rated horribly. It... More

The Craven Hotel, Paddington is situated 5minutes from the station and the underground so is ideal if your not driving. The hotel itself was undergoing refurbishment at the time of our visit but this it did not affect us at all. The staff were very friendly and polite and nothing was too much trouble for them.

We have stayed in this hotel for one night only so I cannot say any bad word about it. Our room was small, but clean and equipped with everything you may need during your stay. There was no lift and it was quite a challenge to get to the room through narrow staircase with steep stairs. The breakfast was included... More
