I stayed at the Shaftesbury Premier Hotel @ Paddington for a week with my wife in Jan 2013.
Location, location, location. Close to Paddington station (3 mins walk) and from there on to wherever you want to go in London. That is the best thing that i could think of !!
Overall experience of staying there was fairly good. Extremely friendly and helpful staff within the hotel and the restaurant.
Rooms can be tiny. So, that is a word of caution for anybody who is travelling with a lot of luggage or who is physically (like me) on the taller and broader dimensions :-)
Breakfast - For our entire stay there the breakfast was the same !! predictable and can be boring for especially folks who are used to travelling and used to seeing a variety of b'fast options. And if you are vegetarian then it can become a little more difficult when you have to contend with exactly the same menu repeatedly throughout your stay.
Considering it was winter, the in room heating was a bit of problem. This was however taken care of with a additional portable heater that was kept in our room.
Having said that i think the location is probably the best that can happen for anyone visiting London for the 1st time and is looking for reasonably priced and conveniently located option.
Would i go back again.....not too sure. London does have a LOT of options catering to every budget. So, keep trying new places to stay ;-)
