I booked the hotel short term, because of some excellent ratings here on tripadvisor and due to its location close to Paddington Station. Location is very good, Cleveland Square is very quiet, nice and clean.
I was welcomed by the receptionist, who stood in front of the hotel (smoking) and greeted me with the words "welcome to home away from home". Well - it was rather the "cellar away from my cellar"
The Hotel is also very clean. You get free WiFi. I can't say too much about the service, because all I did was checking in and out. All in all they seemed very friendly. Dislike: I was charged on arrival, which is quite unusal. I got room #5 , which is located below street level (as well as rooms #4 and #6) and has a size of max. 10 m2. No space to leave your luggage or belongings. This left aside, the room vas very clean with modern interior.
I asked for a different room, but was told, that in my category there was only one other room above sea level available and I had reserved later, so it would be unfair to put me in the other room. This sounds fair, but did not really help me.
For 127 GBP/night (single room) I definitely expect a bigger room somewhere above street level. On my last trip to London (also April 2013) I stayed in The Mad Hatter in Southwark for 140 GBP in a much bigger double room.
Can't really recommend the Cleveland. Go somewhere else.
PS: I booked over a online booking platform (HRS), because on the Cleveland`s website it was sold out
