Most affordable accommodation in central London tends to be impersonal chain hotels. The Rhodes is anything but impersonal; a friendly welcome when we arrived, willingness to carry our luggage to the room (and down again after our stay), attentive service at breakfast. The location of this hotel is excellent, being three minutes walk from Paddington main line and tube stations and many bus routes, with many reasonably priced restaurants also nearby; while it is situated on a tree-lined avenue and set back from the road which minimises traffic noise. The only negative is one we were warned about on the website: there is no lift. We were allocated a fourth-floor room (although they did attempt to find us an alternative, without success) which would be problematic for anyone who found stairs difficult. The room was small but adequate, the bathroom minuscule, but everything clean and well-cared for. They are currently replacing the dated floral-patterned carpets with wooden floors, which is an improvement.
