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

I recently had a quick 2 night visit to London and stayed at the lovely Cardiff Hotel. The room was spotless and, although not massive, it was bigger than the normal London standard. Breakfast was included in the price and offered plenty of choices including a cooked English breakfast. Staff were helpful and friendly and eager to please. The downsides... More

The Cardiff Hotel is good. I've stayed in many hotels in London and it's up there with the best of them, certainly in the value price range. The rooms are clean and quiet. They are "London" size which means small - really quite small. But this is fine for a few nights and the design maximises use of the available... More

I wanted a cheaper hotel near Paddington station as I was flying out of Heathrow so chose this hotel based on the price and the reviews on TA. I was warmly welcomed at the front desk. The single room was clean, well arranged and larger than some other more expensive hotels that I have stayed at in London. The rooms... More

Horrible uncomfortable bed. Average breakfast. Teensy, weensy room - even small for London standards IMO. Sink in bathroom was the length and width of my toothbrush. Threadbare bath towel. No hand towel at all. Dirty bathroom. They're chintzy on the soap. The girl who worked reception when we got there was not friendly at all, but the other 2 people... More

Just got back from this joke of a place, i do not call £310 for 2 nights cheap, total rip off, this is basically like a hostel or student house and you basically get a poxy room with no wardrobe to hang clothes, seriously?

The rooms here were tiny, I had a single room and not only was the bedroom area small, I struggled in the shower and toilet room, however the use of space was very imaginative with the bed converting to a desk. The shower albeit tiny, had a powerful spray and did the job well, place was clean and in reasonable... More
