Hotel is just round the corner from Paddington station and in a very nice square. The rooms are pretty basic (no safe or fridge) but was perfect for me as I was only here one night and wanted to be central. Would stay again.

Stayed here for one week while visiting London. Had read previous reviews, and was a little cautious. I was in room 11. It was quiet, a spacious double room, comfortable bed and reasonably modern bathroom. For its location and the cost, this was a great find hotel. I admit though, having read all the reviews about the breakfast - I...

This was my second stay at this family run hotel in Norfolk Gardens ,so of course we stopped to say hello to Paddington Bear who has moved from the Left luggage office to these quiet leafy gardens just a stone throw's away from his first destination in London. It's a quiet place for visitors too,with plenty of eateries in the...

Excellent location if coming late, or going early to Heathrow, as only 5 min walk from Paddington station for the Heathrow Express. Single room was adequate, if a bit warm, but the window was working. Bathroom basic but clean. Breakfast simple but edible. Good overall service from what is essential a budget hotel with room prices to suit. Effective WiFi....

On arrival the service was good. We arrived early and were allowed to leave our luggage while we went for lunch. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. I had to ask for hairdryer which I collected from reception. The bathroom was clean. The only complaint I have is breakfast. As a vegetarian there really wasn't much on offer as...

This was a good last-minute choice. Advertised as a 3 star this hotel provided an excellent service. We did not expect 5 star facilities. All the staff were cheerful & helpful - especially Nicholas on the desk. The English Breakfast could have been hotter & the toaster does need adjusting but the food was okay. Very convenient for Paddington Station...

Positives - Good Location, nice staff, good looking building Negatives - Cold, dirty, small rooms and London prices...Breakfast was horrific the coffee was foul, a greasy fried egg, cold beans, over cooked bacon, deep fried small sausage. The toast was in fact warm bread. The continental breakfast was 'photocopied' cheese, jam and warm bread. My tip is to go for...

Picked this hotel because we had an early flight out of Heathrow and wanted an easy way to get there (i.e., the Heathrow Express). I thought it was a bit expensive for what you get, but given the price of staying anywhere in London, it was worth it. Our room was small but very clean and we had a nice...

Nicholas, the Manager was a fantastic guy who helped us with any query we had. Unfortunately when we arrived in our room - it was quite small, no fridge and no air-con which meant we left our window open 24/7. The room was immaculate and so was the bathroom and staff were amazing. They offer breakfast included and the girls...

The hardest part about getting to the Chrysos Hotel was negotiating the stairs at Paddington Station with 'the luggage'! After a 24 hour flight from Australia, arriving at Hotel Chrysos to a warm friendly greeting was a great welcome. Our 5th floor room (serviced by an elevator) was honest, clean and looked out over the sweet Norfolk Square gardens. Each...
