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.

I booked this hotel as being near to Paddington station and shops/ restaurants was what I needed. Friendly check in, good room, basic yes but clean and a fair breakfast spread was as expected. The rumble from the tube line underground was audible but not too intrusive and it

Dear Guest, We are delighted to hear that you found our hotel a value for money with a convenient location and friendly service. In regards to the noise, we apologise for any inconvenience. Rest assured we are trying to address the issue with the train station and the Paddington council. Next time you stay with us, please notify a member of our team in regards to the noise and we will be able to act and provide a room on a higher floor, if available. We are looking forward to welcome you again! Shakespeare Hotel

Hands down, the WORST hotel I've ever stayed in. The front desk staff Ody and the housekeeper named Berhe, who was roaming around the front desk, was EXTREMELY rude and condescending. The WiFi was EXTREMELY bad and slow, you can forget about having any connection. There is also

This hotel was just perfect for our stay. My daughter and I stayed 6 nights at the Shakespeare Hotel and it was perfect for our needs. It is super close to Paddington Station, there are convenience stores and restaurants just down the street, free breakfast was exactly as we

Very near to Paddington station, not far from city centre. Early check in at 2, but we arrived at 1:30 and we were able to check in then. Clean room on the ground floor, we had no noise, very comfortable beds, although the pillows were a bit hard for my taste. Very friendly

Dear Alfredo A, I am afraid we do not have any parking permits so we cannot provide parking. You can park on street surcharge for £2.40 per hour Monday - Saturday 8.30-18.30, outside those hours parking is free. There are two private parking companies within 5 minutes walk from the hotel and the cheapest one charges £15 per day. When you arrive you will find the brochures at the front desk. Hope I have helped :). Feel free to contact us again if you need to. Shakespeare Hotel

Dear Indre S, Both lines will bring you straight at Paddington, so I would suggest you may take any of those two. Bare in mind that they both exit by the canal, at little Venice, which means you will have to walk 5 minutes to reach us. As soon as you exit the station you can either walk along the alley next to St. Mary's Hospital or through the train station; both routes will bring you to Praed St.. Best Regards Shakespeare Hotel

Dear Indre S, Thank you for booking with us. Check in is available at 2.00 p.m. but if we have the option we will be happy to check you in earlier. Otherwise we can store your luggage, so you may enjoy your day in London and come back any time after 14.00 to give you your room. The simplest way to reach us when coming from Stansted would be the National Express coach to Paddington, early bookings are recommended. For Luton Airport you would have to take the train from Kings Cross station that will take you directly to the airport. Should you require further information, please feel free to contact us. Looking forward to welcoming you at Paddington. Best Regards Nondas

"Ask for the cosy secluded room with the glass roof window. Great for couples!"
"I had room 234 and it is up a side set of stairs. No one near you but also not easy to access with two doors to get in right where you are"
"With no lift a room close to the ground floor is better."
"Pay a little more and go to a better run hotel."
"If the subway noise will bother you, choose a higher floor. We asked for a double bed in advance."
