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.

Great location”
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.

Acceptable”
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.

Strategic location within walking distance from Paddington Station, nearby resto and souvenir shop that opens till late. Nice breakfast too! Staff is helpful as providing me what I have requested i.e. a room in the ground floor due to no lift or elevator available Single room is too small as well as the toilet and shower room, compared to the price it could be bigger room.

Great location”
We had a great stay at the Shakespeare Hotel. It is very conveniently located close to Paddington Station (about 5 min walk with a toddler) and about a 10-15 min walk from Hyde Park. There is a lovely park in the middle of Norfolk Square, which our room overlooked. The room was fairly basic and worn but clean enough and had everything we needed: tea/coffee facilities, hairdryer, tv with lots of channels (including CBeebies), fridge and a couple of chairs. The room was quite warm, with very little air circulating, we were on 3rd floor. Having read other reviews I knew staircases were narrow and bathroom small but these weren't an issue. We really enjoyed the continental breakfast, particularly the fresh waffles and toast. The juices were tasty and there was a range of coffees and teas available. The only disappointment was that the site I booked on said the cost was £77, however I was charged in Euros and found once converted it was about £5 more. I suppose I should have checked.

No AC, No Elevator, Noise from Tesco delivery at 6AM wakes you up”
Location is convenient to Paddington station. No elevator, but Hotel staff is willing to help carry your bags up. No AC made it a little difficult to get to sleep. Noise from people outside at night continued until Midnight. Noise from Tesco delivery at 6 AM woke me up. He was not considerate of the hotel guests and even slammed the trucks metal door when he left.

I managed to get an excellent price for this hotel. Room was clean with all that I needed. Nice breakfast included in the price. I was on the 4th floor so lots of stairs but I had no luggage so no problem. If you are looking for a clean budget hotel then this is decent place to stay.

The hotel along the Norfolk square are basically small and we don’t expect too much. But surprisingly we found Shakespeare hotel is pretty good as it is tidy and clean. Hotel is just 3 min walk from Paddington but we have s very good sleep as our room cannot hear the road traffic. Downstairs have many different eateries. Very convenient for those who want to take train from Paddington.
