As a regular West End theatre and operagoer for the last 15 years or so, the last train home is often a close shave for me, so I regularly stay overnight in hotels. However, I'd be hard pressed in those 15 years to remember a stay which offered such good value for money. My stay (just me) in room no.... More

I was re- directed as my hotel had double- booked. Pleasant, clean and quiet,but not sure about the shared facilities. Bloomsbury Coffee House under the hotel, so no problem with refreshment! Staff were lovely,and I would stay there again.

A very simple and clean hotel in an excellent location. The room had clearly recently been refurbished and as such was very clean and relatively modern. Taking into account the price of the room you could not expect better.

Coming from Heathrow Paddington is such an easy place to stay with the Heathrow Express so we have often stayed in the area. Our room here was more spacious than in most hotels of this price, it was clean, a very good breakfast and staff very helpful. One is close to Hyde Park, several underground stations, restaurants.

Cosy rooms, outstandingly friendly and helpful staff, great location and good breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance from Paddington station and about a twenty minute walk from Oxford street.

Some were helpful and some not really. An the bad side, I saw a few bugs in the bathroom although the room was clean. I have... More

This hotel was 3minutes walk away from Paddington station so in a great location to explore London. We had a room lovely room on the fourth floor, which was served by a lift. The decor was tasteful and very clean. The hotel had obviously been recently refurbished and was a pleasure to stay in. Although the room was compact it... More

Booked a twin for one night when I visited London with my daughter. We were in the basement room, right next to the dining room. It was lovely, very clean and quite spacious. The tea and coffee sachets were plenty, just what I like. There was no shampoo or any other products except small bars of soap in the shower... More

My husband stays here a lot when he works in London so we went down for a family weekend, we had room 13 which over-looked the front, the beds were very comfy and the room was clean and tidy, plenty of room for 3 of us. Breakfast was spot on and we could order as much as we wanted, the... More
