Room is too small for 2 people. If you unlucky have a room on the base floor, you will hear a vibration of TUBE until about midnight. You need need a wake-up call.

If you want to hear and feel a train going underneath your bedroom, book this hotel. If you want to talk to crazy waiters, that's the place.

Hotel was great and clean. Size is ok for both me and my husband with a 2 year old baby. booked the double room but was given the triple room instead so our room was larger. requested for early check in given our long haul flight and a baby with us. although it was not possible for an early check in due to the hotel was fully booked the night before as it was on a weekend. understandable. so we stored our luggages at the hotel facilities and went out first before our check in at 2pm. service was great and staff was very kind and friendly.

Booked a room at the Shakespeare but my room was in a different hotel. ”
My room was booked at the Shakespeare hotel but when I started checking in I was told that I would be staying in a different hotel. Seemed like common practice and seemed very dodgy. If I had wanted to stay at the dolphin hotel, I'd have booked the dolphin hotel. A terrible nights sleep as there is zero sound proofing between the floors of the hotel. You are not going to sleep until the occupants in the room above you goes to bed.

Hotel was located strategically near Paddington station which is a plus point. However, we were given a room in the basement where we can hear trains passing by very loudly. Otherwise, hotel is value for money though a little old.

Hotel is located very near Paddington Station which mean sit I say near all transport options. The staff were great, friendly and helpful, and the room was comfortable. If you cannot do stairs then there are a limited number of rooms on the ground floor, otherwise the steps are steep but not unmanageable. Enjoyed our stay there.

Simple hotel close to Paddington”
Not 3-stars hotel compared to what you get in Europe as 3-stars. Simple breakfast. Narrow staircase up to 2 floor. No lift. Desperate need for refurbishment. Tiny single room about 9-10 sqm (booking site claimed 12-13 sqm which is pure lie). However, staff (during day time) was friendly and helpful. Night shift just was there and could not help with anything. I arrived late and found somebody's hair in the shower and no towels. I got towels, but I had to live with somebody's hair in the shower until next morning when I flashed it away by myself. Otherwise it seemed to be clean in the room (as far as you can expect a worn out room to be clean). The bed was good and no noise during the night.

Great location for Paddington and very good value. Lots of pubs, shops and places to eat a short walk away. No lift though so a bit of a slog carrying cases to 3rd floor.

We booked this hotel In early July based on reviews on the internet. On arrival in September we were told they did not have a room for us and we were being accommodated at a ‘sister’ hotel two doors down. We had never heard of the new hotel. The room we were assigned was on the fourth floor, up narrow and steep stairs. They did offer us two single rooms further down but being in our70’s and first time in London we did not want to be separated. They did not offer to carry our suitcases up and left us to struggle. The room was at the bottom end of backpacker accommodation with two sets of bunk beds and two single beds crammed together. The empty fridge was very noisy and shelf broken, the TV remote was not working and when fixed a was held together with folded paper and sticky tape over where the battery casing should have been. In the bathroom a very hot water pipe ran up the side of the toilet close enough to touch you if not careful. We left early Next morning.

Overnight stay.”
Although I received booking confirmation for the Shakespeare hotel I was actually directed to their sister Hotel The Dolphin which was only two doors away. The hotel was ok and room very clean but we were put on the top floor with no lift ! Not really what we wanted at the end of a very long day. Breakfast was pretty basic but again ok for the money we paid. It was pretty close to Hyde Park,ideal for our needs. So, yes I would recommend for an overnight stay but probably not any longer.
