I´ve just tried to book an room. I´ve made an enquiry and after I had sent an email for booking the room I received an email communicating that the room was already booked because I had not provided all the information. They just ignored that I had effectively manifested interest to book the room and offered me another in another...

I stayed in Room 48 which has a double bed and not much else. The TV didn't switch on and the shower room is tiny, hardly any space to keep stuff in. However, I just needed the hotel as a place to sleep and for that it was adequate. The decor is outdated and needs replacing.

A group of five of us stayed in this hotel for a girly break away. We originally booked the family room for four people however when an extra person decided to come with us we phoned the hotel to let them know they advised us to book an extra room as five people in one room would be too cramped....

Second reason is it is near Paddington Train Station 3rd Reason can walk to Hyde park from here about 15 mins. 4th can get a British Take-way from the Chippie (Fish and Chip Shop) around the corner : ) 5th...

I've stayed at the Cardiff twice while on business in London. The location can't be beat. You are 50 yards from Paddington Station, with access to the Heathrow Express and the fabulous London Underground. There are plenty of pubs and good restaurants in the neighborhood as well. On the downside, the rooms are very small, cold, and the wifi is...

A small hotel near Paddington, in an area with many B&B. My room was very cold, I asked them to move me and they did it, but also the second room they gave me was quite cold, they have an electric radiator in each room, they know it... The room is small and the bathroom is ridicle, really too small,...

This place reminded me of some of the B&Bs I stayed in while in London during the seventies. If it's luxury you're after, this place isn't for you .... the rooms are a touch old fashioned and very small (we had to close the bathroom door to get into bed) and the stairs to the 3rd floor are a bit...

As per other reviews the rooms are small but for the price and location it is great value. You only need to sleep, have a hot shower and eat breakfast and it has all of that.
