Not knowing too much about London on places to stay, I picked this hotel because it was next to Paddington Station - so it would be easy to get to from Heathrow Airport with heavy luggage. Also picked hotel because of Price and Free Wifi when compared to other hotels.
I was able to get from Airport to hotel in less than 30 minutes, hotel very easy walk from station. Hotel is also near 2 Subway stations - so you have plenty of choices for different lines which came in handy.
Now the room is very, very small. My bathroom is at home is bigger than this hotel room. It really did not bother me since I did not spend any free time in the room - just used it to sleep. However, this is no place for suitecase. That is how small room was. The other thing is even though the location was excellent for being near Paddington Station, it is still 20-30 minutes away by subway to tourist sites of London. So going back to hotel during the day was not an option. I do recommend hotel if you want a hotel near Paddington, if you want a hotel closer to the tourist sites in London I would select a different hotel, but expect to pay more for it. There is a free small breakfast, but it was not much and after first day, I skipped it and hate breakfast at other alternatives.
