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.
