“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights (Monday - Wednesday) and we couldn't have asked for better service. The location is great; the hotel is less than a 5 min walk to Lancaster Gate underground station. Each day when we returned to the room there was fresh towels and the bed was made. The room and en-suite were very clean and there was breakfast served every morning. The value for money is incredible, and this hotel deserves an excellent review.

Room Tip: There is no reason to not stay in this great hotel!

The hotel is located in a very nice area, near two underground stations (Paddington, Lancaster Gate), in a 5-minute walking distance from Hyde Park. Although the rooms are rather small and only have the basic facilities, the hotel is a good choice if you just need a place to sleep. It had a satisfying breakfast, it was clean and overall a good value for money.

Room Tip: The reception is across the street. If it is possible, ask for a room on a lower floor, as there is...

I travelled for 3 nights. Hotel is located very well. To the Lancaster Gate underground station (central Line) there is 3 minutes walk.
Also 3 minutes to Hyde Park, 1.5km to Oxford Street (Marble Arch).
Room were refreshed and very clean. (everyday room was cleaned).
Breakfeasts were simple but fair enough for 3 nights (normal continental breakfast: cherios, toasts, jam, chees and eggs)
The only disadvantage is that there is no lift and to climb 4th floor is exhausting (no problem for me :)) and no wi-fi in rooms (just in reception - bulding accross the street)
I was very satisfied with staying at Paddington Hotel and if travel again to London for few days I will take into consideration visiting this hotel once again.

Room Tip: If you do not like climb stairs - do not choose 4th floor.

We had a newly decorated room at the top - had everything you could want - iron and board , hairdrier , small but clean and functioal bathroom and a comforfable warm room .
Yes it was 98 steps down to breakfast and back up to the room but for the price and location that was a small incovenience .

Room Tip: If you are fit any room is fine

The room was small, which we expected. It felt old and dirty. Breakfast consisted of bread, cereal, instant coffee, tea, orange juice, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cheese, butter, and jelly. Location was close to Lancaster gate and bus route. Lobby was across the street and wifi was only available there.

Needs a breath of fresh air through the place. Our room was on the 2nd floor - 4 flights of stairs - no lift, hard work if you have a large suitcase. Linen was clean, room depressing with dark brown furniture, Window and venetian blinds, that didn't open, could do with a good clean and ensuit could do with a make over - no where to hang your towels!
Traffic noise because of no double glazing, but didn't keep us awake.
On the positive side location is handy for tube, Swan Hotel (good pub grub) Breakfast continental plenty to eat and good choice.So acceptable for one or two night stay at this price. Having said that, we wouldn't go back.
