“better stay than usual”
Reviewed May 14, 2010

I was stuck in the paddington hilton for nearly two weeks thanks to the volcano. As much as I rip on this place (cramped, noisy) this stay wasn't too bad. They didn't gouge me on the rate (even though many other hotels did exactly that to stuck travelers) and I had a room that faced the small internal courtyard. It was far enough from the traffic noise that I was able to sleep with the window open.

Stayed here last night and had a lovely sleep - nice comfy bed, and quiet (except for some occassional noise in the corridor). Lovely art deco lobby and furniture in the room. Room was a good size and had everything I needed (except sky 1, missed 24!). Liked the coffee maker in room and ice machine nearby.

the location is great. Because Paddington is across the street you can go everywhere if you don't feel like walking. otherwise you are in a busy area and lots to do. Recommend it because of the location. The hotel is average. nothing special. For the price you can get better probably but again the location makes it expensive.

We had reserved this hotel for our last day trip in London. No doubt it is a very convenience place to live in especially you had lots of luggage to airport.

We had reserved a double room but we had been upgraded to a suite and served with a welcomed fruit platter. The room are spacious but a little bit old. However, it is quite disappointed there is no free Wi-fi provided in the hotel.

The breakfast buffet were good.

It was my first trip to London and I booked this place only because it was above the Paddington Station. The location is perfect especially if its your first time to London. Take the heathrow express or connect from the airport and get off the station take an escalator and voila you are in the hotel. We landed after a 10 hr flight late evening (it was already pitch dark in december) and it was very easy.
The next day we had a very early morning train to silverstone so again easy to travel when your main station is a few floors by lift.
Its very well connected to both the tube and the trains so getting around london was a breeze.

Hotel itself is not bad, rooms are clean, comfortable ( a little small compared to asian rooms but adequate for london).

The staff are all sweet barring a few rude asian staff. Over all I recommend it to anyone looking for a safe, clean and most important convenient hotel.

No surprises at this place - it's well kitted out, has all the comforts you'd expect from a good business hotel, is well located for early/late flights out of Heathrow, and despite being super busy all the time (lobby / cafe / restaurant especially), it's surprisingly quiet upstairs when you need to sleep. Nice views from the rooms too. The staff make it easy for you, which is great for a quick stopover type of hotel.

The hotel itself is wonderful and location, location, location, so convienent being attatched to Paddington train station. I would recommend for female single travelers as it is very secure returning at night to the hotel. I stayed here on either side of a business trip, so I stayed a Sunday and Friday night. The only problem I had with the hotel was on the Friday night stay, there was music blasting from the bar downstairs until 3am! My room was on the 4th floor 412, so I believe this was over top the bar area. It may have not been that bad if I had a room in a different section of the hotel. I had earplugs in and a noise machine on and could still hear the bass from the music downstairs. This did not happen on the Sunday night stay so I am assuming it is only on Friday and Saturday nights that you would have this problem. The hotel was great with holding luggage. In the train station upstairs from the Hilton (take the elevator to the top), there is a delicious pub that had very good prices for food. Also right in the train station is a grocery store to purchase water and snacks, and sandwich places to grab a quick bite while on the way to the subway. So a very convenient location and I would recommend to stay here, just be aware of the music on Friday and Saturday nights!
