I visit London every 4 years or so with friends to sitesee. We like to stay in the Paddington Area as we are familiar with the area and it is close to the Underground. I share an room with another adult so I always have a twin room.

Castleton Hotel: rooms are small but they are small at all budget hotels. Think cruise ship, versus an American hotel. Bathrooms are small but sames goes for every hotel I've stayed in London. The Castleton was clean, housekeeping was great, and the full English Breakfast in the morning was quick and tasty. Staff was friendly and helpful. I left my backpack (probably due to jetlag) in the lobby, and they put it in storage for me when I came back. Having a lift to get luggage to the room was a first of me for a hotel of this type.

Would definitely stay here again.

Problems: Not very warm showers. The temperature could only be adjusted to mildy warm. Hot showers would have been most welcome on a cold winter night. Temperature in the room could be a bit warm even after turning the thermostat to 18C. Housekeeping always turned the heat up while clean room. Tea kettle in room for tea in the morning was a plus as well.

Room Tip: We were on second floor and had not problems.

I have stayed at the Castleton a few times before. It's very close to Paddington Station, so a good underground service is almost on the doorstep. I find the prices of the rooms at this hotel fluctuate a great deal, so I only use the hotel if the price is a good one when I look it up on the internet.
I will make one point over and above the common thread comments already covered by other contributors here. Some of the rooms are on half landings, so the lift might not stop at the same landing as your room number would suggest. A few trips up and down the lift or stairs will soon give you a reasonable understanding of the hotel layout though

i agree with many other positive reviews.A decent hotel at a reasonable price. Single room was small, but clean and comfortable .Self service cooked breakfast was excellent, with good quality sausages and bacon. I would be happy to stay again.

I stayed for only one night in a single room and for the price it was an ok hotel. its literally 2 minutes from the paddignton station which was convenient for me. room was small but didnt need much. ensuite is small (airline bathroom) so if you want bigger or to stay for longer then this might not be the place for you and is a bit musty in there. apart from all this, i would go there again for a short stay. 24 hour conceirge and breakfast was a proper one, not the one that is usually advertised as English and all you get is cereal and toast. this one had bacon, eggs, juice, sausages.

Stayed one night in hotel on short trip to London. Hotel in a good location, close to tube stop. Great service, room clean, nice breakfast.

Only downside was room was small, but that did not bother us, as we were there only to sleep as was busy exploring London.
