We had a pleasant 4-days long stay in this hotel. The structure, easily accessible by bus and within reach of both Paddington Tube and train stations, is also very close to a National Express stop, where coaches from and to Luton and Stansted airports arrive and depart. The surroundings also include several pubs, fast food restaurants, a 24h open grocery store and currency exchange offices.
The rooms were cozy and bright, the service was brilliant and all of the staff was nice and forthcoming. Unfortunately, the closeness to the underground station implied that we could hear the noise of trains passing by underneath the hotel, but it was not very loud so we still managed to sleep well.
Recommended for tourists with no particular demands.

It has an incredible location. 1/2 block from Peddington Station. Good places to eat at walking distance. The staff is very helpful ; A+ for them. No air conditioning in the room, so have that on mind. Rooms are small but it you are all day exploring London; you are there just to sleep. No elevator; stairs is your ride.
The place is nice so make the best of it.

One of the nicest budget hotels I've stayed at in London. You can hear/feel the tube as you can in a lot of london but that's my only criticism really. Comfy bed. Small but not tiny room (had a double with single bed). Nice clean and fully functioning bathroom. Plenty of hanging space in a wardrobe. Nice view out to a typical london square and of course location brilliant for Paddington and access to the royal parks.

Inclusive breakfast continental but worked for me as a veggy and did have scrambled egg which was really good. Even the machine coffee was nice.

Great value overall. Would definitely book again.

Stayed for 2 nights; they area is full of others hotels like this one, restaurants, pubs. There is a subway station near by. The room was ok, with good water pressure for shower. Buffet for breakfast was very good and there is a lady that prepares pan cakes or waffles. Absolutely a great stay l will be back
