Satisfactory school trip accommodation. It is reasonably clean and has great wi-fi. Staff is nice and the continental breakfast is generous. Our students were in 4 pax rooms with bathroom and we (3 adults) used a double and a single room. It was all to our satisfaction. It is round the corner from Paddington Station and it is a really...

We booked this hotel because of its easy access to Paddington Station. When we arrived there were several large dirty laundry bags piled up in the corridor blocking a Fire Exit and there was a used mattress propped up in the vicinity of yet another. The place was very shabby and needs a vast amount of tlc.. On the good...

The Hotel is located next to Paddington Station and was totally OK for the price. Room was clean, breakfast was OK. There are a lot of restaurants, pubs and small food stores by the hotel. Overall you can´t complain about what you get for this price. I would come back again.

We had booked the Dolphin Hotel for one night whilst going to a Cheese and Wine Tasting event close by. On returning to the Dolphin to collect our case they requested for us to transfer to the Shakespeare, their sister hotel next door. No reason was given but as I was using a crutch they could have felt the stairs...

A nice inexpensive Hotel beautifully located in Paddington. The single room was small and the bathroom old and tiny, but I got a good rate so considering the high prices in London it was a really good deal. Breakfast ok,and room was clean. The staff was really friendly, and service minded. I forgot my IPad at the hotel, but got...

I try to keep my expectations in line with what the room costs per night. For London, this is almost a "too good to be true" price. So remember to keep your expectations in line. Our family of 4 stayed here for a quick couple of days in London before traveling to Ireland. This actually was a decent value for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The perfect place to stay during your visit in London. Very nice neighborhood, a personal favourite, with nice cafes and restaurants. A very nice walk to Hyde Park is recommended or to Oxford Street for those shopping lovers, both are walking distance away. Rooms have been upgraded and there is always someone to help. The price is very low, for what you get, so be sure to check us out. ... more   less
