Hotel si very nice and everything is clean and tidy. The staff is friendly and worthwhile. Iwas in a singl room and had a balcony. On the terrace there were a table and two chairs, which made it possible to sit outside with friends and drink coffee. I had a water jug and I made coffee and tea. It was... More

Very close to Paddington Staton but room was very small. The bathroom was so small that only one person could be in there at a time. The door had to be opened to use the wash hand basin and there was no where to hang towels, etc. Breakfast was adequate but not enough room for everyone. There were also single... More

For those heading to Heathrow Airport the following day, great location to London Paddington and Heathrow Express train to airport. It is a short walk to the train station. My room was clean but small. There was no lift. Wifi was so/so.

Great Location close to the express train to airport and the tube . Clean rooms but very small rooms. Not the most fancy breakfast but ok, and great coffee .Very friendly and helpful staff. The perfect hotel in London when you dont spend any time on the room .

The Cardiff Hotel is located right next to one of the Big Bus London tour stops, which was really convenient for our first day in London. It is also located a block from the Padding Station as well as several inexpensive souvenir shops and restaurants. It is not too far from Hyde Park or Regent St., some of our favorite... More

Lots of cool things about this hotel that make it unique. The architecture and location near the park make it much more interesting than the usual hotel here in the US. My stay was a few years ago and I had a tiny little room on the top floor with no elevator! Downstairs was a nice breakfast each morning and... More

If you are used to hotel pricing elsewhere in the UK, then you may well end up disappointed in the Cardiff Hotel. However, when comparing it on a scale against other London Hotels, then the place is definitely OK. The good points: the hotel is well positioned within very easy walking distance of Paddington Station. It is in a quite... More

The pros were that it was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the room was reasonably sized, staff were helpful (if you could find one that spoke English), breakfast was good quality food, well cooked, the location was very handy for Hyde Park and the hotel overlooked a quiet and pleasant square. The cons were that some of the other... More
