Great value in a fabulous location

We had a (tiny) standard double. Room was very modern and clean. We didn't get the breakfast buffet as past experience elsewhere with buffets has not been good. This turned out to be the right decision - McDonald's next door, Subway across the street (both fast food and train variety!) and Garfunkels downstairs offered plenty of options. Only downside was the lift starts from level 1 - dragging our suitcases up a flight of stairs after travelling over 30 hours from Australia was not on my list of stuff I wanted to do right then! The London Big Bus has a stop about 25 metres from the door, Edgware road is a very comfy walk of about 1 kilometre away. Paddington tube is right next door with subway entrance 20 metres from front door. Plenty of options for dinner - several traditional English pubs within 50 metres, as well as curry joints, fish and chips and endless fast food. The Lebanese kebab house was fabulous and at £16 for two kebabs, chips and drinks was exactly what we needed after a full day in the London Big Bus! We will definitely be back.

About 20 dining options within 150 metres, including all your traditional English foods you may want to try. Food is very affordable and the Lebanese kebab house is definitely worth a try.

Great hotel

I stayed in this hotel for one night after flying direct from New Zealand, as I was getting a train to Devon the next day from Paddington. The location is excellent for the Heathrow Express from the airport and for trains to the Westcountry from Paddington. I had a single room, so it was on the small side, but it was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Price is average for London. I have stayed here before and would happily stay again. The reception staff and porter could not have been more helpful. Breakfast is served in Garfunkels next to the hotel, but on going in I was presented with their menu which did not have many breakfast items on. My waitress did not point out the breakfast buffet bar option. Standard breakfast items like eggs and bacon were not on the menu and seemed only to be available on request from my obervations. Apart from the breakfast in Garfunkens, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Clean and convenient (for Heathrow)

On my arrival the staff were helpful about suitcases. The room is SMALL but well-furnished, quiet (I think double-glazed as it was just over Praed Street), air-conditioned. The bed was clean and comfortable. The bathroom is tiny but, again, everything is there that you need. The main thing -- for a person living in Cornwall and travelling fairly frequently to the US -- is that it is one minute away from Paddington station.

This a nicely refurbished hotel with tasteful rooms, although slightly small. The hotel staff is excellent, and the location is perfect if you are arriving from or going to Heathrow by train, as the Heathrow express is a 5 minute walk. Our room was quiet, with almost no street noise. There is a small but very nicely equipped fitness center, which is surprising for a relatively small hotel. Overall, a very good value,

Although the room was small (which didn't bother us), it was very clean, and the location was fabulous being so close to the train and underground - perfect as we came in on an evening flight, and the airport train goes straight to Paddington. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. Would definitely recommend this hotel for people travelling on either business or pleasure, affordable and comfortable. We will stay here again on our next trip back.

Room was average and clean, but tiny - could barely fit our two suitcases and two carry on bags. Reception staff were not helpful and arrogant at times. Room wasn't ready at 2pm check in time but no offer of compensation or even an apology. We were told if we wanted our room early (even though it was after the check in time) we should book for the previous night to ensure we could have the room anytime that day! Would not recommend at all.

The location is excellent when travelling from Heathrow after a long flight. Also good location if needing to depart from Paddington Station to further destinations. Rooms are very small but modern. Would not want to stay for too long but for an overnight stay, this hotel is good.

Location adjacent to Paddington

Location adjacent to Paddington is the only reason to stay in this hotel. The room I was given was the smallest hotel room I had ever been in - and I had just come from Paris, where they don't build big. There was NO place to set up a luggage rack and still be able to walk around the bed. Spoke to a girl in a twin room - it sounded larger. Servicing of the room was random, cups were often dirty, including wrapped plastic cups (??!) I couldn't get the hotel WiFi or cable to connect at all - have never struggled in other hotels - but it turned out that my 1st floor room had access to McDonald's WiFi from downstairs, so I never had to sort that out. Lots of street noise in the room - near a hospital, so lots of sirens. Extremely convenient for Paddington Station.
