“Great location”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is the second time i have stayed here and it is in the best possible location, literally 20 meters from Paddington Station.

The rooms are very small but have everything you need. i would suggest that for business travelers try and book a standard room (the choices smaller are small single or small double) it is more expensive but you get more room and it still shows on the expense for as a Standard, so you can not be accused of being excessive.

I would strongly suggest avoid eating at the Garfunkels under the hotel, it really is nit very good at all. i ate at the London Brasserie just around the corner and it was very good.

I will try the Hotel indigo on my next London trip though.

We were pleasantly suprised by this hotel as had chosen it off the internet and from other reviews that I had read, all true. This is modern hotel, we had clean comfortable room, good decor, complimentary mini bar. The location was near Paddington station, check in was speedy and our cases were delivered to our room. Staff were very helpfull, superb service, many thanks to Inna and Weronica for their kindness and attention. I will recomend this hotel to my friends and for sure I'll be staying there again.

I stayed here on a recent business trip. I chose this hotel based on location. Heathrow Express termiantes at Paddington Station which is across the street from the hotel. Also, you can get on the Tube at Paddington Station. The rooms are small but clean. Garfunkles restaraunt (attached) served breakfast to order as part of the room+breakfast combo. Waiters didn't hover near your table but could be called for a coffee refill or other service. Fitness room was clean and equipment (e.g., bike) was maintained in good working condition. Many sandwich shops and cafes nearby so you can buy dinner, take it back to the room, and save money from not eating in a restaurant. I would definetley stay here again.

Room Tip: Inside room not facing street.

I stayed at the Mercure Paddington the week of Nov 11, 2012. The location is great, but that is about as good as it gets. The hotel rooms are exceptionally small. Staff is ignorant to the concept of service. The onsite restaurant, Garfunkels, should be avoided at all cost. Not only was the breakfast uninspiring, but guests were begging for service from the ignorant and inattentive staff. There are numerous great establishments around Paddington Station providing far greater value for money.

Incredibly convenient right by Paddington station. Very well thought through room that was particularly clean and unusually well serviced each day. The staff were helpful and pleasant.
The street outside being so close to the station is quite busy but my room was quiet and had free wifi and the AC worked well.

A big however - the room was tiny and apparently a double. There was only space for one person to move around.

Is fine I think so long as not wanting to spend time in the room.

Dear Guest,
It is always good to receive a review from a seasoned traveler and thank you for it. As with many historic city center hotels room sizes do vary. Should you stay with us again I would like to recommend one of our executive or king bedded rooms which I know you will find more to your liking.
Kind regards
