Good modern hotel right next to Paddington Station. Plenty of bars and dining venues nearby. We dined at night and the meals were not particularly special, suggest eat elsewhere. Warm, clean and tidy room which was the best thing. Good buffet breakfast.

The hotel is about 15 mins walk away from the Paddington train station and unfortunately, there is construction going on infont of the hotel and there is no access to the hotel direct, so we need to push the bag all the way from the gate at the entrance all the way to the hotel. If you carry lots of... More

We booked for two nights as we were in London for a wedding. The room was clean and well equipped. It was fairly small so with all four of us in there it was a bit cozy! Breakfast was nice, plenty of choice, perfect for the children who eat well! There was some building work outside the hotel which woke... More

Was year for a weekend with my fiancé and we enjoyed our stay. The position is great, Paddignton is convenient for trains and subway connections. Also is just 5 minutes away from beautiful little Venice, regent park and Hyde park. We had both dinner and breakfast and food was generally nice, fresh and with wide options. Also good wine list...

This is your minimalist business hotel. Everything is clean and works but expect no raffles. It is centrally located however with easy access to the underground and especially the Heathrow express. There are a few restaurants nearby but the everything closes pretty early.

I was here for three nights for various meetings around London, and actually enjoyed quite a bit. It is very close to Paddington Station, and good access to public transport. It's kinda hard for taxis to find the hotel itself, though. The room was predictable, nothing special, but did the trick. There are a fair number of restaurants in the... More

Situated reasonably close to Paddington station, it is a bit of walk from the station along the canal route to get to the hotel itself, not the most convenient if you have lots of luggage.
