“Very good hotel near Paddington Station”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Whenever we come to London we tend to stay at the Rhodes Hotel. We have stayed in other Hotels around Paddington but we were never happy with them and now we always book at the Rhodes. This time we booked very late and we got the very last double room available. It was a bit small for 2 elderly people. One of us had to climb over the other when we had to get up at night. Everything else was like usual - friendly, personal and very clean. Very nice breakfast. We will definitely book again for our next London visit.

There are a lot of hotels in the area, but most of them do not advertise for international clients. The rhodes is accessible to Paddington and Lancaster tube. The bathroom was nicely renovated and modern, but the room was older. I didn't mind very much. If you're looking for a lively area in London this isn't it, but for an affordable and accessible stay the Rhodes is a good property.

I recently wrote a blog-post of my stay at this wonderful hotel in London. I hope you find it helpful.
Chris, the owner, provides wonderful service. There is a very nice included breakfast and he actually sat and chatted with me a few mornings which was very pleasant. The shower in my room initially had only very hot water coming from the pipes, but almost as soon as I told him about this, it was fixed. I love to travel solo, but it can be dangerous. I knew, without a doubt, that if I had run into any trouble, Chris and his wife would have seen to it that I was helped. It was a lovely feeling of security and I tremendously enjoyed my stay. I plan to return August 2014.

The rooms are small, but there is free internet and a little refrigerator. Chris told me they have rooms that will sleep from 1 to 6.

Highly recommended.

Rhodes Hotel offered good value and excellent service in London. Deluxe double was a worthwhile upgrade and gets you a good sized room in London. Continental Breakfast was a nice addition. Found the staff to be particularly helpful and responsive.

Location is excellent for nearby tube or train station (Paddington) as well as Hyde Park. City centre can be easily walked to in around 1/2 hour

I booked two rooms (2 parents + 2 children).
The best price was by booking at the hotel.
I asked to have them close and indeed we got two rooms on the second floor close to each other. The rooms and the shower are very minimal.
Since we arrived very early we got a quad room at good price just until our rooms were ready.

The internet was fine to all 4 phones+ laptop.
The breakfast was very good (includes drinks, an egg, cheese and sausages)
The hotel is very close to Paddington underground station.

I booked this hotel online for several based on reviews and proximity to Paddington station - taking the Heathrow express was great, even coming in at 9:30pm! The manager was very responsive to emails in advance. I expected a small room and was pleasantly surprised with the deluxe double. (I had originally wanted a balcony room, but those are smaller.) We were in the main house and a few flights up - the room was a very decent size with a sofa, faced the street and was very quiet. We had a great night's sleep. The A/C operated very well and was quite. The breakfast was included and it was very good - the breakfast staff was extremely friendly and attentive. There was a variety of breads, sandwich meats& cheese, yogurt cereal and fruit. No need to get the special English breakfast - we got that once to try, but there is more than enough with the regular breakfast. The WIFI did go down 1 time, but a quick call to the front desk and they rebooted and it was up again. Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in main hotel - a deluxe double is plenty big for 2 people and has a sofa. Email in...
