I travel a lot in my profession and i love staying in hotels (and I'm sure my wife does too aa I'm a little messy). What i have never had to do, is book a hotel and ponder "Is this a hotel or a guesthouse?" Or "What makes a hotel a hotel and different from a guesthouse?" Anyway, after all...

This is a nice and affordable hotel with excellent location near Paddington station! The room was clean and quite modern, and the beds were comfortable. Bathroom was quite small but clean and tidy, however. Breakfast was lovely, and the staff was extremely helpful and wonderful! Good value for money!

A good value hotel in Paddington, near station. Rooms are all clean and are freshly decorated. Good selection of self service breakfast (both continental and cooked). The only down side is no lift and 4 flights of stairs, due to age/style of building.

This was my second stay here and was happy returning to this hotel. This time, I was unlucky to get a room on the 5th floor and hence had to contend lugging bags and myself up and down each time. But for this, everything else remained great! Great location, clean rooms, cheerful employees and adequate (but repetitive) breakfast...Ticked most boxes,...

Hotel is clean and well located a short walk from London Paddington. The hotel is fine for a one night stay but wouldn't recommend for longer as the rooms are small (even by London standards). Poor breakfast with bad quality sausages etc. Okay but not good.

This hotel is ideally located within walking distance of Paddington Station. It is clean and bright and serves a very good breakfast. The biggest downside is that there is no lift and the stairs are steep and narrow. The rooms are very small and the bath is totally microscopic (single room). Most of the staff is outstanding and go out...

Very lovely hotel. Very kind, helpful and professional staff. Tasty breakfasts (english - bacon, sausages, eggs, baked beans)! Perfect location - just few steps from Paddington Station, walking distance (in my opinion) to Hyde Park, Royal Albert Hall, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Buckingham Palace and maybe even Big Ben.

Rooms are tiny -- even by London standards -- but clean. The biggest negative is that there is no elevator in the hotel and no porters on duty to help with bags. I was carrying a 20 kilo suitcase so this was definitely an issue. (There are 7-8 steps outside the hotel as well. If not for the kindness of...
