The location of this hotel in Paddington is excellent, a 3 minute walk from both Lancaster Gate Underground and Hyde Park. On arrival, a notice on the hotel door advised that the reception for the Pddington was closed and now transferred to the Westbourne Hotel across the street so guests had to go there to check in/out. On entering the... More

Room was fine. Clean which was the main thing. As others have said the main fault was the amount of stairs. Good workout though I guess. We had to check into a hotel across the street for some reason but wasn't a major hassle. Oh your breakfast cereals are way out of date. We found some from April . Bit... More

This hotel looks good on the pictures on the booking site but the reality is far from it. The outside and public areas are not welcoming, clean or in a good state of repair. The room was ok, comfy bed but on the whole poor. Good choice of tv channels, no lift or WiFi other than in lobby. Come on... More

Very very tired hotel. The bed was clean, which was my biggest stress! The staff were very polite. Price wise very reasonable given the proximity to where we neede to be but I will not be rushing back!

Wished I had done some pre research on this hotel. Really not my kind of place and can't imagine why people would choose this if they were able to see realistic photos of what it's actually like inside. It's horrible. Why can't the owners just invest in some paint and tidy the place up and replace the disgusting carpets that... More

We booked a family room in this hotel for one night as it seemed like a good location for getting around London. It’s about a 5-10 minute walk from Paddington train and tube station. The hotel is on a main road, so it was a little noisy. It was also one of the few reasonably priced family rooms that had... More

Staff where unfriendly and unhelpful, demanded a passport number! We had traveled from Bristol and where unaware that there where border patrols at each county. We had to hand over a driving license before we could check in. Room was shabby and cluttered. One person on bed while other walks round. When you have a shower, once water filters though... More

We were staying for 2 nights during the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations and the accommodation was perfect, a comfortable double bed, large room, powerful shower and free breakfast. The staff were friendly and welcoming. They allowed us to leave our bags after we had checked out so we continue with the celebrations luggage free. There is no lift but this... More

It's centrally located, and not a bad price - for London. The decor around the whole hotel was pretty tired and shabby looking, but I had a good size double room. No lift, but luckily I was only on the second floor. I was only staying 1 night, arriving very late to sleep over after a function, so all I... More
