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

Great location, near the park, in a traditional neighborhood, next to Paddington Station, very practical. Friendly and helpful staff, and good breakfast. I have stayed on two occasions, and certainly recommend.

I found this to be a clean comfortable hotel with pleasant friendly staff. It is only 2 minutes from Paddington Station and within easy distance to all the attractions. I booked a double room with single occupancy and was in Room 5 on the first floor. The room has a big window which I was able to open wide to... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night in a single room . Very good for a three star hotel. Clean and very functional. The bathroom was tiny , but it worked well. The room was on the fourth floor so was quite a trek to get there . The location was very close to Paddington and this was what... More

We stayed at the Cardiff hotel last night, and booked a 5 bedded room. The location was brilliant and the ladies on the desk were very pleasant and polite! A* for customer service..... But.... The rooms are very small, and the room we were given was at basement level. So as it's been hot lately it was very very hot.... More

Beds were tiny and the rooms were also tiny. Bathroom was dreadful ever time we turned the tap on we could smell egg we ended up going out to the... More

Cardiff Hotel is a good choice if you need a well-priced base for a trip to London or indeed if proximity to Paddington is preferred; what really impressed us was the above and beyond attitude of the desk staff - we were given some very good advice about Airport transfers and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms aren't very big... More

Stayed here upon arrival in London last June. Just a block away from Paddington station so it was an easy walk even with luggage. We got the family room for 5 pax.. It was small but clean. Shower area is tricky as it is very small. There is not lift - as with most other B&B in London. We enjoyed... More

Even if this hotel charged £5 per night I would still complaint. This little cramp, warm, dusty unfashionable place is charging extortion like rates and are the worst place I ever stayed. Outside my back yard window view scaffolding work was carried out with noises almost 24/7. The rooms are small dusty, dirty and VERY small. The breakfast reminded about... More
