I was there with my friend. We stayed there for 3 nights. During our stay we had so many questions and requests and the receptionists did everything to make us contented. They were helpful.
There wasn't a large selection of food for breakfast, but it was enough to stop being hungry.
The room was quite small and the bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen. You could brush your teeth in the sink while you were sitting on the toilet. But as I said, it was enough, because we spent a lot of time outside and we only slept at the hotel.
Beds were comfortable.

Surprised by the comments I have read here, my experience was completely opposite of what others have written here.

Staff was very much helpful in arranging things as per my requests. Rooms were cleaned everyday and housekeeping was up to the mark. everything was perfect for me given the location of the hotel is a minute's walk from Paddington Central station, which is well connected to London underground and inter-city train network.

Rooms were small, but the best you can get at that location given its proximity to city centre.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking Norfolk square garden, hotel staff will help you with selection.

Stayed there for 45 days approx. Location wise it is perfect. Staff is helping and friendly. Fits in your budget and breakfast provided is very good. You get all the big small things in house. They also arrange for cabs and offer good advice on the places to visit and eating joints. It is less than 100 meters from the paddington central railways. There are also two tube stations in very close proximity where you get connectivity to almost complete London all zones. Nearby restaurants are awesome and in plenty. Rooms are cozy with a comfortable bed. Only problem with this hotel is its size. Rooms are small due to the location cost but overall its good. View is also amazing from the rooms. The norfolk square garden is visible right in front of the hotel.

Stayed here in summer. The room is so small you can not open your suitcase anywhere but on the bed. Bathroom is so small that I could not lift my arms above my head without opening the shower door. Terrible water pressure. Curled up floor covering in bathroom and I tripped on it. Cigarette butts on the window sill and stained carpets. The noise and cigarette smoke from the adjoining apartments comes straight in the window and the street noise from pubs and cars made sleep impossible and the room was too stuffy to close the window. Would not recommend staying in summer unless you're a party goer!

So Paddington provided a very comfortable and nice stay to me and my friends during our trip to London
.
Location and Ambiance is great. Hotel Staff is really very helpful and supportive.

Strongly recommend this to my friends and family.

Room Tip: Rooms with the windows to the Garden provide a very nice view.
