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.

Needed to stay in London one evening due to an early start the next day. Small, dated but fine. For £37 inc breakfast (didn’t have time though) what more do you want.

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.

Near the Metro. Great Food around.”
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.

Bad experience”
This hotel is not worth the money. It is more of a hostel then a hotel. The rooms are very small with no air conditioning and the bathrooms are even smaller. The room was so hot that we couldn't sleep for the three days that we stayed. We could hear the people in the rooms next to and above us. We could hear the underground from our third floor room. It was so bad that we checked out a day early. The only good comments I have is that the front desk staff was nice.

It is basic and a bit cramped in but there were 5 of us so most places would be cramped in 1 room, the location is very good, local facilities but above all it was very good value for money in comparison to most other options. Dont expect The Ritz, cheap and convenient, very helpful staff.

central location
Fast check in and friendly staff. Basic but clean room. Close to Paddington train station and central London. Good breakfast. Gardens at the front were lovely. Walking distance to Hyde park and Kensington Gardens. Would recommend if you want to stay close to all the attractions. My only 2 small complaints would be the shower room is tiny and they didnt provide tea or coffee making facilities. Overall though I would stay again and would recommend this hotel to others.
