    great little hotel in a great location”
    I booked this because it was something I could afford, but I was really pleased with the very comfortable (small) room, with a good toilet and shower. You can feel a faint rumble when the train goes by, but it didn't bother me. Good breakfast with cereal, eggs, cheese, ham, and breads. Lots of restaurants nearby and Paddington tube and train stations. I'm a runner, and the Grand Union Canal is just a few blocks away, where I could run miles and miles on the towpath. I'll watch for this place next time I go to London!

    The room that I stayed in for three nights is in the single room on the ground floor. That room has a window ceiling and during rainy days, there is water leakage and the water drop on my bed which makes the bedding wet. During the daytime, they tend to shut off the heater and the room feels so cold and they will open it around 5 pm. Everything else was good and the location is very strategic and near to Paddington Station.

    Great location and at £103 for a family room on a Saturday with breakfast it was really good value for money. Breakfast room was cramped. The room we had on the 4th floor was in a poor condition. No lift so be prepared for a long steep walk up all the stairs with your luggage. The lamp needs replacing as this was damaged and the plug into the wall was also damaged. Windows were old and did not shut properly. Floor was very creaky. Strip lighting is not what you would expect in a hotel room. Wardrobe had no doors. On the plus side there was a full size fridge in the room and the beds were comfortable with the bedding being clean and of a good quality. Low water pressure for the shower.

    The room was the problem. It was extremely small, with virtually no room for storage of luggage and no storage amenities (no drawers or closet). Otherwise the hotel was extremely well located, 1 block from Paddington Station, the breakfast was fine, and the staff in general were nice.

    Decent comfortable hotel but be warned about the teeny shower if on 4th floor”
    Stayed here for a couple of nights. The hotel itself was decent and the included (basic) continental breakfast was a good addition if you're on budget (you can get cooked breakfast but it's extra). The bed was reasonable comfortable and the size of room was generous for the area and price. This was one of the rare hotels where things don't creek that much (you get that a lot with budget hotels in paddington area). The location is good, it's away from main road thus no noise issue. As far as value goes, this hotel is above average (I have stayed in numerous budget hotels in this area). One thing to note and this my personal view, I thought the shower was very disappointing. I stayed on the fourth floor and there was not enough pressure to push the water from the ground floor all the way to the fourth. On second morning, at some point, the water actually stopped, I had to go to communal shower and took shower head off to finish shower.

    Awful experience!”
    We arrived late night and the entrance was crowded by youngsters smoking and drinking and were hindering the entrance, they stared at us while we were trying to reach the door with all our luggage which made us feel uncomfortable. Afterwards, when doing the check in there were two guys, one training the other. Both didn’t acted professionaly since one of them stared at me lasciviously while the other was checkining us nervously. Me and my niece felt very unsafe and insecure, we locked our room door and we left the morning next day despite we had paid 3 nights more. The hotel didn’t want to refund us and justified everything. Besides that, the room was clean but it is very noisy.

    great location and close to many rrstairents and supermarkets. About a 5 minute walk to Paddington. ”
    athe room was a 4 single bad room for £140, which is a little pricey, but affordable for a group splitting the money I guess. Breakfast was not cooked although we found out later that there is an option for that with an extra fee. shower/toilet room was very very small with no ventilation so really not ideal for 4 guests.

    I stayed at The Dolphin in September, 17 - 20. The room I had was indeed a small one, but as I didn´t intend to stay in more than I had to, it was quite satisfactory. It had all that was needed, including tea- and coffee-utensils. Also the bathroom was on the smaller side, but then again, had all that was needed. One extra plus was that the room was a little "off", compared to the others. Where the stairs up to the third floor went on straight up, the few steps to my room went in the opposite direction, meaning I didn´t have any neighbours.

    I was sick during my first few days in London so it was great that this hotel was just a short walk away from the train station. Lots of nearby places to eat. No elevator up to the rooms like many European hotels. The room was very cold though and I couldn't turn up the heater.

    There was a problem with the hotel overbooking. Fortunately they found another hotel for me to go to, but it wasn't of the same standard (shared toilet, rather basic breakfast). All staff were helpful, though.
