“The Smallest double room I have ever stayed in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Clean sheets, very clean bathroom - but the smallest room I have ever stayed in
it was on the second floor and the stairs are a problem if you have lots of luggage - good location for Paddington - we stayed in a double room which the double bed was close to the wall so one person has to climb into bed - no room to move in the room - but for the price - no complaints - we paid £61 two including breakfast - for london i thought it was very reasonable
Also very warm we turned off the radiator and opened the window

Avon Hotel has become our favourite hotel in London. it is a humble, economic, but extremely well kept and hospitable place with good rooms furnished comfortably and with good taste and extremely clean and fresh. The hotel is run by a friendly family and there is a nice feeling of family business ethics, seriousness, dedication and reliable service. The full English breakfast is scrumptious, delicious and fresh.The location in Paddington is ideal and the area is comfortable and safe even in night and early morning hours. We as a family would suggest Avon Hotel a must to all who visit London with great value for money. We surely would go there again.

The hotel was close to many restaurants, pubs and shops, and only 200 metres from Paddington Station. Although the room was quite compact it served the purpose we required. If you have any difficulty with walking then ask for a room on a lower floor as we were on the 4th floor and there were lots of stairs to climb and no lift. Breakfast was more than adequate with a good choice of cereal, fruit, croissants and juices, followed by a freshly cooked full English. The staff were very friendly and we were allowed to leave our luggage there whilst we were out the following day. I would recommend The Avon Hotel

Room Tip: If you have any problems with your legs and back then try to get a room close to the ground floor as...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The hotel is only a couple of minutes walk, from Paddington railway / underground station's and easy to find at Norfolk Square. Staff at check inn and through out stay was very friendly. Room number 17, was a single on same floor as the reception, it was small but adequate after a day of exploring London. Only problem was some noise from the underground by passing train's but that was to be expected as hotel is very close to the station, but noise might be less on higher floors. Overall great price, location and clean room's.

Room Tip: Higher floor's for less noise from the underground.

The small double room was very SMALL, but very clean and tidy too. However, the bathroom was a caravan style moulded plastic plug in unit smaller than my shower at home.
Noise was OK
We went for breakfast at 7.45 and nothing was ready for us, so we left.
For London, good value for money.

Room Tip: 1st floor or higher, and if you don't want very small, don't go for a small one!

Booked approx 3 months in advance for this reunion. I requested two twin rooms , next door to each other, and this was printed on my booking form. Two weeks prior to the visit I received a phone call to tell me that there were no twin beds available and I should book another hotel! I found the manager to be most irate who kept telling me not to stress. She also did not ring me back when she promised to do so. When I explained that I had no time to find alternative accommodation she said we would be next door in their other hotel, not good enough! When I arrived we were sent down the street to St Davids hotel, who we were told were doing Avon a favour. We were given rooms two staircases apart ! Avon spoilt the weekend.
