“Still wonderful after four stays!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We have had several stays at the Rhodes Hotel, most recently over the holidays. We have always been quite happy with our stay here. We are always given a warm welcome and made to feel at home. The owner and staff are wonderful - very professional! There are several reasons we will always stay here first in London. The hotel is in a nice location - a short walk from Paddington Station. It is very clean, the beds are very comfortable, the jet tubs are very nice, there is a separate sitting area with lighting for getting ready so it is easy to share the bath, there are double windows to shut out noise, the rooms have a nice view and windows that open, there is air conditioning, a mini-fridge in the room, coffee and tea, the WiFi works very well, the lobby is nice and friendly, and the breakfast, in addition to there being fresh yogurt, cereals, and juices, is cooked to order by a decent cook.

Room Tip: I prefer to have a window with a view in the front of the hotel. Some rooms have balconies but I ha...

We wanted a good hotel with reasonable rates in the Paddington area because of the closeness to Paddington Station, Lancaster Gate Tube Station and Hyde Park. We booked two rooms at The Rhodes in Sussex Gardens and were pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms because we had experienced smaller rooms in similar priced hotels in different areas of London. The amenities and breakfast were excellent The staff was very pleasant and helpful throughout our 5 day visit. Some of the guests were working while others like ourselves were there for pleasure. The hotel arranged for entertainment tickets at reasonable prices, We will definitely plan to stay at the Rhodes should be have the opportunity to visit London again.

It was the first time in London, and the first time at the Rhodes Hotel and i recomend it for everybody that needs a nice, calm and sympathetic place to stay. Tinny but very very comfortable. The owner and the employers are very cozy and sympathetic. A big hug for them.

My family and I were very pleased with our choice in the Rhodes Hotel. The staff did a great job, very helpful and kind. The breakfast each morning was delicious. The owner Chris added to our wonderful stay. He was fun to visit with and I even received chocolates on Christmas morning!
We will definitely return to this hotel if we end up in London again. Thanks for a super stay!

I stayed this time as usual in Rhodes Hotel this december, as this has always ben my prefered place to stay in london, which we tag in my family as our second home.
we hav been using this place, for almost 10 years now. i have introduced alot of family and friends.
and i have never heard any one ,complained about this second home of mine,\.
over the years i have seen the improvements and refurbishments going on in this place. for instance the new bathrooms are so comfortable , that you can sleep in there .
i am writting this because i am aware of the bogus reports on some reviews in support of insurance claims.
i can assure anyday doubting thomas, to try this place you shall not regrets. please keep the good work the Management of Rhodes Hotel.

We have just returned ( December, 2012 ) from another visit to London and 'our home away from home' --- the Rhodes. We always feel safe and secure in this tourist hotel. We found this gem in Paddington in 1999 and have stayed there every time we are in London ever since. Actually, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Both Chris and Maria are most welcoming and hospitible and we are treated like returning friends. All the staff is very helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are a great way to start the day. The location is perfect --- close to Paddington Station for the Heathrow Express and all those tube lines. As well, Lancaster Gate tube stop is within very easy walking distance. Hyde Park is just a 5 minute walk away.
Great people, great value, great location. It doesn't get any better than that.

We used the Rhodes Hotel three different times and were always extremely satisfied. The location, cleanliness, and helpful staff were all first-rate. We stored our luggage here while making side trips to Bath and Paris. We would come back.
