    Short stay in London”
    The Shakespeare Hotel is in a quiet, leafy location minutes from Paddington Station and several buses to take you around London. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was a really good continental with an option of paying just £3 for a full English! Our room was on the ground floor so we did hear the tubes passing underneath but that didn't disturb too much. There are several good restaurants within walking distance, including a fantastic Lebanese just around the corner.

    Great location. One street from Paddington Station,.... you can take the express from Heathrow Airport and walk to the hotel. Good for traveling in the underground. If you plan to use the underground ; get the Oyster Card from the first day. You will really save money. Staff is super helpful and very professional. Gave us directions everyday and were happy to help. A+ for them. Great front desk team. Remember, rooms do not have air conditioner, so keep this in mind if you travel in the summer. Rooms are small but if you're looking for the landmarks, you're just there to sleep. No elevator, so steps is what you get. But it's okay. Very nice neighborhood, clean, much security in the park across the street. Nice places to eat too. Other than no air conditioner .... A+ for them.

    Bare bones, good value”
    Bare bones, good value This was definitely an older hotel with few extra amenities, but when you want your own private bathroom in a great location, you cannot beat this hotel! I am a single traveler near my 50s. And I did not want to stay in a hostile with a shared bathroom. This place was as clean as it could be for an older hotel, and very small, like the size of a dorm room, and absolutely perfect for my needs. The bathroom is very clean,The shower pressure was terrific. It was nice to have my own space, and a very substantial free breakfast. It was one block from the Paddington station, and less than a half of a mile walk to the Kensington Gardens.

    I loved this hotel it was so easy to find and not far from the tube station. the reception staff. ”
    Friendly and efficient. Hotel very clean. My room was cosy and clean and had everything I needed. The bed was nice and firm and I had a good sleep. I found it quiet and I do like the rumble of the tube, it all adds to the experience of visiting London. Breakfast was very good and the staff were also friendly. Checking out was straight forward and friendly and its good to have 24 hour reception. I would stay there again

    Easy reach from Heathrow via Paddington; cheap and clean”
    Stayed in a family room with four beds in a basement. Very clean. Toilet, small sink and shower; wardrobe; a desk and two chairs - very clean and in order. Unable to watch or listen to ordinary British programmes on TV or radio like the BBC. Occasional noise of underground trains. Some may find it disturbing and some not. Breakfast self service. Not ‘full’ English breakfast.

    I stayed in a cupboard”
    I stay around the Paddington area a lot. My room here was the smallest I've ever seen - just about enough room to put down your suitcase and leave enough floor to squeeze to the wet room (not enough space for a bathroom). I kept the door open of the bathroom to use the toilet! Not enough room otherwise. Won't be staying again. Better options in Paddington for the same price.

    Hotel becomes home when the people in it take that responsibility and Shakespeare has it.”
    For me as a woman travelling alone and not in the best of my health,I found the reception boys and kitchen staff extremely kind and giving.I hope this Christmas will be more merry for them for the goodness they offered to someone needy.Shakespeare hotel should be proud of these staffs running your institution with such core values touching the heart.

    not bad with a offer”
    The staff isn't bad but the receptionist of the night is very unavailable, he can't give information, he doesn't smile and it seems that it annoys him that you ask for any information. I find this room with a offer but if i'll pay a total price for the room i think that i would have felt cheated.
