Booked this hotel through Lastminute.com and for two nights over the weekend and got a deal for about 136.00 for two, We arrived at the hotel and we checked in at the reception and were then advised the porter would ask to our rooms less than a minute away... I automatically panicked, the porter helped us with our luggage and we were then taken to the Best Western Shaftesbury Paddington hotel where we were given our hotel key and a porter carried our luggage to the opposite side of the hotel to the Paddington suites... I need not have worried as the room was big enough, clean, and worth of a 4 star hotel with an iron, blow dryer and tea facilities etc.. Both the hotels are owned by one person so you can end up in either when booking on line. .The hotels are very near Paddington station as well as Lancaster underground station. Opposite the Paddington suites , you can pay for the London scheme bikes cycle or walk to Hyde park(6 minutes Walk).We also walked to Oxford circus which was about a 30 minute walk.. There are lots of restaurants around as well as Cafe's for breakfast which would be cheaper than the hotel one if not included in your bundle. A very central location and very easy to move around and much cheaper to walk, cycle or commute by bus around central London.
Ask for the paddington suites.. That is where we ended up. online the room was called a double delux...
