This hotel was booked because of its proximity to Paddington Station as well as to multiple tube lines.. Having stayed in London a number of times, location is paramount if you wish to avail yourself of public transportation and for this the hotel is ideal .
The rooms are smaller than they appear in the photos. Closet space is minimal, shelf space or dresser drawers basically non existent. You will live out of your suitcase which you will need to place on your bed often. The beds are adequate. Housekeeping regular and the rooms clean.The air-conditioning works properly and there are no offensive smells.
The bathrooms are similar to those in a small ship: very compact . You would consider it roomy only if you compared it to an onboard airline restroom. The shower is very compact. A circular depression with a round curtain. Water pressure and hot water most sufficient. However, if you might be considered large in circumference or claustrophobic, you may have a problem.
Breakfast consists of a buffet of orange juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, stewed tomatoes, beans,sausages and plentiful toast as well as tea or coffee. More than adequate and actually generous. After a few days, however, you might wish for an additional choice of yogurt and fruit which is not provided.
The neighborhood is picturesque, safe, quiet and the hotel itself is one block away from Paddington Station. Your short walk to the station will have you pass numerous restaurants, small groceries, nearby banks, a small park, as well as a McDonald's and BurgerKing..
The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The hotel provides all the needed necessities without frills. If you can live with downsizing, then you will have an enjoyable vacation , speedy transportation and save some money on accomodations. If not, proceed elsewhere.
