Location: The hotel is conveniently located around the corner from Paddington tube station. We had no problems walking our heavy luggage from the tube. It's also just round the corner from a main road with plenty of bus routes. From the hotel we walked to: Little Venice, Hyde Park, Mable Arch, Oxford St, Bayswater, Madame Tussauds. There is a good pub around the corner (Dickens), a 24hr Tesco Express nearby & plenty of food options, including great middle eastern food on Edgeware Rd.
Breakfast: This was included in the price. There was a choice of cooked or continental. They happily accommodated me as a vegetarian. I opted for the cooked but most days I was offered items from the continental as well i.e. croissant, yoghurt etc. The ladies serving had limited English but were very friendly and helpful.
Reception: The staff on reception were very friendly, check in was hassle-free, we departed at 5am so settled our bill the night before. Staff helped us out when we had questions.
Room: Our room was on the 1st floor, no lift, but I never expect that in historic London buildings. The room was small (also expected in European capital cities) but it was functional and clean. We had a nice view over the beautiful Norfolk Square. Shower pressure was great. Bed was comfortable. Even though the hotel is literally around the corner from the tube and busy roads, there is no traffic noise as it fronts onto a quiet garden square.
Overall, a great budget option for London. Hotels in the area are so expensive, and I never spend much time in them as I like to be out exploring. As long as the hotel is clean, bed is comfy and staff are friendly, that's all I'm really looking for. If you're the same you'll be happy with this place.
