“Good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the rooms at The Paddington, we hadn't paid much and so our expectations were realistic. Checking in, we were a bit apprehensive, as the reception was makeshift due to a fire, but the duty Manager was very pleasant. Our room was on the 3rd floor,
and very large. We had everything we needed, T.V, fridge, tea & coffee and ensuite.( Very small ensuite but as clean as a whistle.)The housekeeping staff were very good and it was cleaned daily. Breakfast was basic but plenty of it, and we were able to make arrangements on 2 mornings, to have it before the appointed start time, due to tour pick-ups.For less than $100 per room we thought it was great value.

We spend three nights here and really enjoyed! Super friendly service! I asked beforehand to get a room from ground floor and we got it. The room was bigger than we had expected and breakfast was good. And location is really good! A bed is a little hard and here are many stairs if you get a room from upper floor!

Not much to say. It is a room to stay, quite cold since the Windows are not really as they should be. The fridge is loud during the night, you just have to turn it off. The bathroom is tiny, but for one person it is enough.

The staff is absolutely friendly, the breakfast is just something to eat. Cheese, jam, toast, Joghurt, eggs.

But as I said, find something that is cheaper in this area... Most likely impossible. And the location is superb.

so i booked this hotel as it was near where my graduate assessment centre was taking place and i wanted to get a good nights sleep and not have far to travel in the morning. whilst i didnt have far to travel, i didnt get a good nights sleep, i was woken up by at 4.30 and then at 5.30 by the pipes rattling, i couldn't get to sleep first of all as the curtains didnt fit the window and the room was extremely loud from the traffic outside. the website says that there is an iron and an ironing board in the room so i couldn't iron my shirt and when i tried to get hold of one they basically made no effort to find me one. so to sum up, don't go here, its s**t.

The room was bigger than expected but very basic don't expect to many frills. The bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. Location was good with plenty of access to a wide variety of food outlets and supermarkets. Breakfast was ok but did not sample cooked version. English can be difficult for some of the staff but they tried to obtain the information you requested. Would stay again. There is no lift, older style building.

Room Tip: When booking ask for lowest floor possible because of the stairs especially with suitcases.

We found the location to be very nice. Just a short walk from Paddington Station in a quiet area not far from Hyde Park. The room was pretty dreary, not fantastically clean, but for an overpriced city like London, it's fine for a budget conscious traveler.

Many people have commented on the lack of elevator but please do understand that if you are on the 3rd floor that you are actually climbing 6 floors due to the way the building is set up. We were fine but we traveled with packs not luggage.
