Stayed here in mid May 2013 on our last night in UK before returning to Australia. Great location, very reasonably priced, comfortable and clean rooms and a nice breakfast included. We left our luggage with Bobby for most of the following day and he happily let us use his reception area to completely re-pack everything before our flights home the next evening - this was really helpful as we were travelling with our 5 month old son which created plenty of logistical challenges. Thanks again! James, Anna & Tali.

Stayed there with my wife in late May 2013. Bobby and his family who run the b&b were very helpfull and friendly. The room was small but that is what we expected. Very clean and comfortable and close to everything. Pubs and restaurants were 2 minutes away. If we were to go back to London we would not stay anywhere else.

We stayed for 4 nights on short notice.The owners were delightful. Breakfast was delicious. The location was very convenient and in a nice neighborhood near Paddington Station. We were given triple room for three adults. It was the ideal room. There are several restaurants in the vacinity.

We loved our stay here. Bobby and family who run the hotel are warm and welcoming. He is a wealth of information and very helpful. The hotel is clean and well located. Breakfast is a nice start to the day with a choice of cooked or cereal eats. We travel a lot and it is so much nicer to stay in this kind of hotel which is family owned and operated. Thanks!!

My mission was to cram as much as possible into a very short visit to London. Barry House B&B was perfect for my purposes, beginning with very personalized communications from the manager, Bobby Bhasin, in advance of my even booking. He helped point me toward attractions I was interested in pursuing (a walk around the corner to Hyde park Stables!), and provided the convenience of booking and paying for theater tickets and day excursions right at the front desk. Barry House is in a perfect location, within a neighborhood of B&B's and small hotels called Sussex Gardens. Very close by were a nice compliment of restaurants and convenience markets, open perhaps as late as midnight. Paddington Train Station was a very easy two block walk (even with a suitcase), therefore 15 minutes from Heathrow on the Express. The station is also a stop on the Underground for easy navigating around London. A nice back up, as I actually found walking, to be very doable, and enjoyable -- along Hyde Park to Marble Arch, to Oxford and Regent Streets (Selfridges and Liberty of London), on to Picadilly (theaters), Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and across the bridge to the London Eye and even more arts and attractions on the south bank of the Thames. If I had had more time, a walk in another direction would have taken me through Kensington Gardens to Knightsbridge (Harrod's and Victoria and Albert Museum). Barry House accommodations were modest, but impeccably clean, comfortable, private, great for traveling alone and on a budget, and complete with free wifi. Most important was Mr. Bhasin's kind assistance, which made my full enjoyment of too few days optimal! I really did not sleep much, but how sweet at the end of the day to have peace, and a comfortable, clean bed! Can't wait to return, and may even use Barry House as a base for visits to other cities in the UK and Europe in the future.

Room Tip: No elevator, but walking up a few flights was no problem for me.

The Barry house is situated on a lovely street, a few blocks from Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens & a 4 minute walk from Paddington Station. Very pretty on the outside if plain & in need of updating inside. Bobby warmly greeted us and let us leave our bags, since we arrived hours before checkin. A downside to staying in some of these lovely old buildings is no lift. We had a couple big bags and he thankfully offered to let us leave what we didn't need downstairs. He highlighted points of interest on a map & helped us with our routes. The ensuite room was small and plain but clean with a teasmaid & selection of coffee, tea etc. and free wifi.The view wasn't bad (attractive building across the street). We had to leave before breakfast the next morning so I can't comment on that. The pricing of accommodations near Paddington were so very expensive. Barry House was way below. I'm happy to forego modern conveniences of the newer expensive hotels, especially when the hotel is in as nicely located as this one. I would have given a higher rating if it was a little more up to date, but i would and probably will stay there again. If you want to be accessible to Heathrow via Paddington Express (which was amazing easy and painless at 7:45 in the morning) and don't want to spend an arm and a leg this is a good choice!
