“Nice, handy,stylish - a bit small”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Spent 5 nights at Stylotel in September. I am overall satisfied with service, cleanliness of the room and the breakfast provided. Here is a short list of pros and cons:

PROS:
- Very close to Paddington station & nearby shops (internet cafe, laundrette, restaurants etc)
- Felt very safe in that location
- Staff friendly & helpful (asked for a quiet room and was given one)
- Wifi isn't free BUT once you buy your time, this isn't cumulative (e.g. you can buy 5 hours and use 1 hour per day and log on/off as you please). This to me is a positive as quite a few other hotels we have visited don't have usable wifi in the rooms
- Breakfast was plentiful and fresh food was used. Free teas and coffee facilities available 24hr.
- Hotel is environmentally conscious

CONS:
- Room was very small (though we knew this at the time of booking)
- Bathroom was also very small and the toilet more often than not smelled really bad (possible sewage smell coming up through pipes)

Overall we were very happy with the experience and would gladly recommend this hotel to other or return when we visit London in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. The area isn't a party one, although some rooms to do look onto a semi-bus...

Location was superb, a 2 minute walk to Paddington tube station and lots of amenities nearby, staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel has a unique look to it but that's certainly not a bad thing, the only thing I would say was slightly odd was the location of the only iron in the hotel (at the entrance to the breakfast room) but that is nitpicking, overall a very enjoyable stay and good value, would recommend and would stay again.

After 4 nights my eyes were starting to become accustomed to the "Star Trek" decor at Stylotel. All walls are lined aluminium panelling. All fittings & furnishings are polished aluminium or stainless steel with blue upholstery. Rooms are small, but clean & reasonably comfortable which is expected in Paddington within this price range. Due to the decor our rooms had a somewhat sterile feel to them, but if you don't like bacteria that could be a good thing. A full cooked breakfast in the "Starship Bridge Deck" is included in the £95 per night tariff for a double. If you see Mr. Spock, tell him I sent you!

This hotel coped beautifully with one exhausted adult, 3 over-excited children aged between 7 and 12 (who managed to lock key in the room and break the safe) and 9 huge bags. Clean and spacious family room for 4. They then managed to book us another room, at a reduced price, right opposite for dad who rocked up at the last minute. Gave him free parking when he had been ticketed for parking on street. Kept a bag which we'd left behind safe. Lovely to the children. Really nice breakfast. Thanks Rodrigo et all.

I booked this hotel due to it being close to Paddington station. On arrival I was told my room was ready, this was a few hours before the published check in time. The room was what I was expecting from a London hotel, not massive but clean and comfortable. The only very slight down side was the power of the shower.
What was included in the price was a full buffet style english breakfast, which was plentiful and nice. So many hotels now don't include breakfast and try and charge large amounts for it.
All the staff I spoke to were very pleasent and polite.
I would probably stay here again.

This hotel was exactly what I was looking for for the first night of my friend's hen do- great london location, great rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and above all fantastic value for money- it worked out to £65 each for one night INCLUDING breakfast. It's even cheaper in the standard rooms but we wanted the suites. We even loved the unique space age decor- if you love blue and chrome then this is a bonus!
The staff could not have done more to be any more accommodating. They Stylo hotel team deserve a medal for brilliant service. Thanks again guys!

Room Tip: Definitely worth booking the 2 suites available if you are a group of 6 or 7. Great space, and facil...

God Hotel. Location was good and also the hotel was neat and tidy. Only the rooms were small (expected it to be small when booking - so no complain) but the bathroom was really tiny (Like in the Train - tiny means very tiny). Surprisingly the breakfast was good. Will recomend the hotel but not to expect much from the size of the hotel room specially the bathroom but was clean and also the person at the reception was helpful. I had opted for a triple room and had just enough space for 3 bed and in bathroom no 2 people can stand at one time. If not fussy about the size of the room and bathroom and looking for central location / neat and tidy hotel can opt for Stylotel Hotel - Paddington.
