I travelled to London with a friend last November. St. Davids was a fantastic find. Excellent location just a 3 minute walk to Paddington Station, and convenient to the Heathrow Express. We found the staff were friendly & helpful. The full english breakfast was a real treat - tasty food in vast quantities. Remember that this is a budget hotel....

I had read so many positive comments about St. David's Hotel prior to me and my daughter's 4-day-trip to London, but we were hugely disapointed about the lack of friendliness at the place. The evening reception clerk could not have been more indifferent when we arrived in the evening, wet and tired. No small talk there. He asked about our...

When checking out, I asked to have my bill 'charged in pounds'. I was ignored but due to a previous Tripadvisor post I checked it to find out it was converted to USD. I explained I didn't want conversion as I had requested. He 'didn't know how to do it' so asked I try again later when someone else would...

We are in our 70's and enjoy London, returning at least once a year. This year, George, Foulla and Alex outdid themelves! As always, George's full English breakfasts last most of the afternoon and a cup of tea with a small sandwich is enough until dinner. This family is remarkable with their solicitous attitude and helpfulness. They gave us a...

Just a few minutes from Paddington station. Perfect if you are going spend your time exploring London and not in the hotelroom. Clean but small rooms. Friendly staff and a really good breakfast. You find nice restaurants and bars nearby.

We stayed here for 6 nights when we were in London, and I'm so glad we did! The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, always greeting you with a friendly smile and happy to answer any inquiries we had. We stayed in a double bed room on the first floor up, which was clean and tidy, and included a small...

This is a great place. No bugs! Great staff and an awesome breakfast. Just don't let them charge your credit card in anything but GBP or you will get a 3.5 conversion fee, which is NOT from the card company. They told me it was but it is done at the hotel and on the receipt.

I spent a few nights there two weeks ago; Overall, it was a pleasant stay, and I recommend it for others. pros: - Most of the staff were really helpful and nice. - Good location (especially if you come / go to Heathrow airport, using Heathrow express/connect). Also, there's a bus route from Trafalgar that operates all night long (23,...

Picked this hotel after reading TripAdvisor's reviews. Location is brilliant, just a few steps from Paddington Train and Tube stations. Not expensive, considering average accommodation costs in London! Rooms are a tad small. Then again, they're all the same in any other B&B, plus you don't go to London to stay in your hotel room the whole day!. They're cozy...
