“Exactly as described and very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I originally found this hotel on Expedia, but decided to contact the hotel directly. I actually paid less contacting the hotel and booking it online through the hotel, rather than through expedia. The room was exactly as described and it was clean and had everything I needed. I even had a private balcony that had a nice view. It's close to Hyde Park and I took a very nice walk. The continental breakfast was very good and it was more than I needed. Slept like a bear and felt the staff was very nice. When I checked in the gentleman at the desk offered to carry my bag upstairs for me, it was unexpected, and I appreciated it very much after a long day of travel from Canada. I would recommend this hotel, it's not the Ritz or the Fairmont, but it's wonderfully located, and it was exactly as described. Very clean, would stay there again!

Room Tip: I was alone, so the double bed was more than enough for my needs, the rooms are tight, but again, it...

The Rhodes Hotel offers everything you need when visiting London. The room we had was small, but that is always the case when staying at a budget hotel. It had comfortable beds, a small, but well equipped bathroom, Wifi for free and the continental breakfast contained everything we needed, from toast to cereals, coffee, orange juice and fruit.

Stayed in annex twice, good value, clean, liked having the fridge and air conditioning. No lift so fourth floor was a bit of a challenge (75 steps). Fine if you're fit, otherwise choose a lower level. They will take your luggage up for you if you need help.

Room Tip: No lift in annex so if you aren't keen on stairs ask for lower level.

The room was very clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was included in the price and I was happy with the selection and amount of food provided. I was staying in the main building and the WiFi was perfect. I will be recommending this hotel.

The owner clearly makes the difference! He talks to every guest during breakfast and pays attention to the little details. Went there for a friend's birthday and we were completely spoiled. The location close to Hyde Park, walking distance Paddington Station is extremely convenient.

The Rhodes hotel is located just a short walk to both Paddington and Lancaster Gate stations. It is minutes (walking) from beautiful Hyde Park and near several quiet but good restaurants. If you are looking for an easy, quiet, safe and convenient location this is a good hotel. The included breakfast is good, and the breakfast staff is darling. The hotel will send a car for you from the airport, and that service is reasonable and convenient. Rooms are not large, but the bathrooms are very good and everything is spotless. My only complaint is that the rooms were not very soundproof at all, and whereas the rather well-mannered guests were not loud, even late-arrivals and conversations were an issue. If you are not hyper-sensitive to noise then this hotel is a wonderful spot to stay.

Not often I feel misled by the high praise for hotels on TripAdvisor but this is one of them. I was looking for modestly priced room for one person for 2 nights near Paddington station. The interior of the room was a real shoebox. I had to climb for sets of steep stairs to get tobmy room with my luggage. Ask if your hotel has lifts. The breakfast was in a tiny room and you may have to wait for your turn. The bathroom was super tiny. If you just needba place to sleep, this hotel is fine. Can't recommend it to older folks for sure

Room Tip: Ask for room on ground floor

Dear Guest

Thank you for your recent stay at Rhodes Hotel London.

We would like to say that you could have opted to pay well over £200.00 per night for a four star hotel with lift etc.

However you choose to book Rhodes Hotel London through our own web-site choosing the best online rate (non-refundable deal) during the London Marathon paying less than £ 86.26 including quite enriched breakfast, Wi-Fi etc.

We are known for our value for money and strive to offer best services to our valued guests. This is evident from many reviews and we would like to mention written eponymously one by Ms Mary Dawn Dedriae who is a regular traveller and have her blog for her travel experience.

She stayed in the same room in 2013 and here is the link of the blog where she has reviewed our hotel:

Kind regards
