Arrived at Paddington station via airport express and the hotel is easily located within 5min walk from the station. Appreciated the early check-in as we arrived a couple of hours early. Decor at the reception was decent. However, the room was a huge disappointment. It is the tiniest hotel room i have ever stayed in. With a double bed in... More

Upon arrival at our original hotel, the Shaftsbury Metropolis, we were informed, that they were overbooked (System Error) and we were transferred to this one . (This being a sister property) This is something no one wants to hear after a 12 hr flight. The images available on the page are very misleading. We booked a family room, which showed... More

Hotel staff were very helpful and welcoming. The staff made sure our stay to celebrate our Anniversary was memorable as the room was beautifully prepared. Throughly enjoyed the breakfast. Good location for central and local amenities. Overall what made the stay pleasurable was the friendly and genuine approach of the staff. Would stay here again.

Over the last few years visiting London on business we have stayed in several rooms in Paddington available in the Shaftesbury 'collection'. After a few hours, we become used to the 'body ballet' (Seamon) required to manoeuvre about the characteristically London small room - stylishly equipped and impeccably clean, it has to be said. On this occasion particularly, we were... More

We booked a Club Double for one night for a short visit to London. We chose it because it's very handy for Paddington, literally a 5 minute walk. We got there early just after 12 so weren't surprised that the room wasn't ready as check in was 2pm. We asked if we could leave our two bags, that was no... More

Stayed for just a night thankfully or else wouldn't have survived in that dingy room in the attic. The hotel lobby looks of victorian era and has some interesting details and is interesting. Location is fantastic as it is central to most attractions in London. I would recommend anyone staying at this hotel to specifically ask for lower rooms.

This hotel was the most reasonable rate in the area and if it's just a bed for the night you need, then you will not be disappointed. The room we got just about fit the furniture in with a foot/foot n a half of space around the bed. If swinging cats is your game, this room is not for you!... More

Close to Paddington Station this is a reasonably priced (by London standards) hotel. The rooms are a bit worn. One chair in my room had a rip in its back and the bathroom tiles seemed to be missing a lot of grouting (but, hey, not my problem if the room below me gets wet). And the guest business lounge room... More
