Nice location, convenience and friendly staff”

Hotel is 5 mins walk from Paddington Station. You can take express train from Heathrow Airport directly or Piccadilly Circus line to the hotel. This area is so close to Hyde park and Little Venice canal. I love everything in this hotel. The price is worth to spend. I’ll definitely stay at this place again if I go to London.

Bargain price for an extremely convenient location”

Location, Price, Staff

Cheapest place I have ever found to stay in London and the location couldn't have been any more convenient for getting around central and west London (Paddington station is literally a 1 minute walk away). The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I did not have breakfast so couldn't comment on the food and there was not an option to mark Food/Dining as N/A on the review. The hotel interior is a little old tired with no lift (I was on the top floor so that was 6 flights of stairs every time I went up and down) and the rooms are small and basic but it is clean and comfortable. For the price I paid you cannot get better in London. I have paid a lot more for much worse in other hotels supposedly in a better category. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel or to book again for myself.

A Piece of Heaven”

Paddington area is always my favorite place to stay when I go to London. For the central location but not too crowded. So Padding Hotel is one of the best choices for hotels. The location has the bus stop to a different part of the city; the Paddington central train station is just the corner; many shops & 24hrs resto and the most important very safe neighborhood. All hotel staff are awesome they are very helpful and they always makes me feel at home. Thank you so much my So PaddingtonHotel Family for taking care of me & my accommodation for 18 days. Definitely I will be back the soonest I get my corporate rate! Stay joyful and positive all the time guys!

Pleasant stay”

Location, price and comfort

I needed a hotel in central London and wanted one with easy access to transport, small and price. This hotel ticked all the boxes and I would definitely stay again, especially because I found the room at the front noisy on the first night and they moved me straight away. The staff were friendly and helpful and it's a few minutes walk to Paddington and a few minutes longer to Hyde park. The downside of the hotel is the smallness of the rooms and the choice of food. However, to be honest while in London there are plenty of places to find excellent food and while in London there is far too much to do to spend your time in a hotel room. If you want 5 star luxury then look elsewhere but if you want a comfortable and affordable base then I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

High value!”

I booked this hotel on the same night due to my bookings in other hotels not allowed me check-in in the late evening. But very soon I stay in this hotel, they offer me the room on the ground floor because I have 2 big pieces of luggage. And the staff in reception is friendly and kindly guided me. The location is perfect coz it is just a few meters walk from Paddington Station, which allowed me to bring my luggage directly to take Heathrow Express. I will choose this hotel again if I visit London again!

The hotel is located close to Paddington Rail and Underground stations (along with a number of bus stops nearby), and is not noisy at night. My room was very clean upon check-in, and the housekeepers are always very helpful! Staff at the reception are also very kind and polite.

We had a double room which was small, basic but clean and fresh. The staff member was friendly and helpful (stored our luggage for free so we could go and look around until checkin time. We were very early!) The location is wonderful, 3 mins walk from Paddington, great from Heathrow express. The toilet and shower was ensuite but very tiny. If you are a very big size could be a problem! If you just want somewhere to sleep and freshen up, free tea coffee provided, this is about the cheapest and best value you can find in a great London location.

We were greeted with nice , helpful reception staffs . This hotel has no lift . We were placed on the high floor . Very fortunate , they have one porter to help you to pull up your luggages to you room . The porter also helped you to bring down your lugguges when you checked out . Do not forget your gratitude by giving some tip to the porter . It is not easy to pull up /bring down two big luggages using the narrow stairway . Excellent service . Excellent location just next to Paddington Station . Very ideal hotel to stay over for a night when u planned to rush to the airport the next day .

Great location, value for money, super helpful staff”

We booked this hotel through agoda, but somehow agoda didn’t send the reservation to the hotel. When we arrived (jet lagged having been awake and traveling 25 hours), the front desk informed us they had no reservation sent through agoda. Rather than just saying they were sorry, Amber (at front desk) was so helpful and worked with us to talk on the phone with agoda to figure out the problem. Eventually we got it all worked out and were able to find our reservation and get a room. Could not be more thankful to Amber and the staff at this hotel for their help so late at night. They were all so very kind and accommodating. This hotel is perfect location, no fuss room yet really comfortable beds. We really enjoyed our stay and again, thank you to the hotel staff for being so helpful in sorting our reservation out!

This is basically an ideal place for muslim traveler. The location is a good one with Paddington station is a 5 min walks and plenty of halal restaurants nearby as well as souvenier and groceries shops. The only disadvantage is that this hotel don't have an elevator which can be quite hard for traveller that bring large luggage. The room is quite ok for 2 travellers to stay in a room. I'm generally happy with my stay here.

Big improvements ”

This is our second time staying this month and we were given a newly renovated room on the second floor (no lift) It is small, but clean and bright. It has a good functioning radiator and the toilet/shower is slightly bigger and more comfortable than our previous room. The location is marvellous as only 3 mins walk from Paddington station. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. Has a small proper wardrobe, big screen tv and tea/coffee making facilies. Some minor dislikes, the fire alarm went of and was a long time in being reset when no fire! and one bedside lamp was not able to switch on as the pull cord was missing. Given the price this hotel is definitely worth considering:-)

A budget and simple place to stay in London. Just 1 min. away from Paddington station. Easy to move around in London and good public transport connections to anywhere. Room was simple and not modern but I would say it's fair when you pay around 60 EUR a night. We didn't anything else for our stay. We didn't take breakfast but it was around 5 Pounds.

An okay stay”

Free wifi, tv, room service everyday

The stay was okay. No lift/elevator in the hotel, so we had to carry our luggage bags by the stairs. Lucky we stayed at the first floor only. The room was small and without a fridge. A heater was available and working which was great as it was winter time. It would be nicer if they had a fridge for us to keep milk, yogurt etc. Hair dryer was available. The check in and check out was simple and the reception counter was opened 24hrs. The hotel is very near to paddington station and getting public transport is easy breezy. Finding halal food was easy too. For the price, it is a great hotel due to its location.
