“Perfect little hotel - good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Perfect little hotel tucked away in a quiet square a short walk from Paddington station. Gentleman on the night shift was very helpful in making sure we had everything, as we arrived late.

Room was big, clean and had a nice bathroom. Appeared to be some damp stains on the walls but not an issue. Bed was comfortable.

Would stay again, and for the price and location, an absolute bargain.

A hidden gem. Tucked away in quiet Cleveland Square, a short walk from Paddington station. Staff were helpful, sheets were crisp, room was beautifully decorated whilst maintaining the period features of the original building. The room was vast with a huge bed - I hardly noticed my other half who apparently slept in the same bed, and a sofa bed for our daughter that was probably king sized. The bathroom was well-equipped and modern. A decent TV and a kitchenette was also provided which would be of use to those spending a longer period here. Slightly negative points, and they are the only things I can fault, are the lack of sockets within the kitchen area (had to use an extension lead) and the carpet was probably due for a clean but was by no means filthy.

Room Tip: ground floor best

Have stayed here on business a couple of times. Kitchenette area in room is very handy for continuing to work in the evening and the rooms are very clean and modern. Quiet considering its proximity to Paddington and very handy for the station & Heathrow Express. Would use again.

Very good location, tidy an looking nice at first sight. However, our room in the basement only had one window and the bath room was very small and the walls attacked by mold - unhealthy and dangerous to allergics. We will never use this hotel again. It is overrated. A number of hotels in the area is much better value for moeny.

My family and I booked this hotel for our first and last week in London after searching for months on the internet. Considering how expensive it is to stay in London, the price for this hotel was very fair, included a small kitchenette, free wifi, air conditioning, was super quiet (we didn't hear any noise at all) and was in a great location. It's a 5-10min walk to Hyde Park and a 10-15min walk to Paddington station - from there we were able to catch the tube or the overground to wherever we needed to go! On the walk to and from the station, there were plenty of food places to eat, convenience stores (to stock up our kitchenette!) and souvenir shops. The staff were lovely and when I next return to London, I will definitely look at staying here again!

Room Tip: As others have said, the top floor room is a bit of maze to get there if you take the lift option. E...

In our experience, London is one of the toughest places to find larger hotel rooms at reasonable prices. The Cleveland offered us a modern, stylish studio that could accomodate our family with a queen bed and a queen sleeper sofa. Price was very good. Also had a kitchenette, and a corner store up the street where we were able to pick up some eggs, yogurt, bread, milk, etc. Around the corner from Hyde Park. Lovely neighborhood. 5 minute walk with luggage to the nearest metro. Single serve espresso machine in the lobby was a nice touch too. We visit London multiple times each year. We will be staying at The Cleveland from hence forth.

This hotel is in a very quiet, very convenient neighborhood. Within half a mile walk to Paddington and probably one a quarter mile to Queensway, Bayswater, and Lancaster Gate tube stations. These stops access most of the the tube lines or can get you close to a different tube line in short order. Definitely an area of London I would recommend and would stay here again.

The room itself was fairly average for this type of place, but the kitchenette was a nice feature. The bed wasn't overly comfortable, but we were certainly able to get a decent nights rest. The size of the room was on par with other London hotels we've stayed. It wasn't overly big, and by most American standards would be considered a small room, but for European hotel rooms this was pretty good. The only odd thing was the television was on the wall adjacent to the bed, essentially at the foot of the bed, so that made for an odd viewing angle at times.

The only drawback was the actual location of our room, we were on the first small hallway from the front desk on the ground floor, so it seemed as if everyone coming and going was passing our room to get to theirs. For future stays, I would request a room in a different area or on the floor above to hopefully cut down on foot traffic outside the room.

All in all, this was a good place to stay and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone I knew taking a trip to London.
