We stayed at Seymour Hotel for 4 nights. I found the hotel to be a bit old and cramped, but it's clean, tidy and the staff were nice, polite and helpful.

It's right next to Paddington station where the Heathrow trains come in. It is a short walk from Oxford street. The location was therefore perfect for us. It in a quite quiet street, some traffic but really not bad considering it is in the center of London.

Our room was small, but clean. The bed were comfortable. No rooms had a double bed, so we were offered a room with twin beds which really didn't matter. The bathroom is really tiny, but it works ok if you're only there for a few nights, maybe weeks. The room, because of the size, isn't something to go for if you spend a lot of time in your hotel room. But if you're planning on spending most of the time outside the hotel room then it more than good enough.

The Hotel itself was okay, it is near the Underground Station Paddington from which you can take the Bakerloo or Circle/District Line to the hotspots of London. The Rooms are very small and the furniture is also very old. There is an ensuite bathroom in every room, but this is not a real bathroom it is only a plastic container which was built in the room. It contains a WC, a wash basin and a shower, but if you take a shower the whole container is wet.
Take care if you book a double room, we did but there are generally no double rooms at seymour (only twin rooms). They offered us to change to the White House Hotel (which is located beside the Seymour) but we decided to stay at Seymour and put our beds one on one which was no problem.
The room was tidy but as I already mentioned in old style. The hotel offers breakfast where you can get cereals, ham, cheese, yoghurt, jam, butter, toast bread and tea & coffee. We have been there over the NYE 2008/09 and the central heating was also working good. The hotel-employees are friendly and helpful. So all in all it's okay for a short trip and if you don't want a very comfortable room.

We booked a room at the Seymour, but were diverted into another hotel in a house very close by, so the only thing I can say is that the location is neat.

We arrived at Paddington tube station quite late at night. With the help of our maps we found the hotel very easily. It took about 5 minutes of walking to get there and there were a lot of super markets along the way. As soon as we got to the hotel, the receptionist told us that our room was in another hotel. At first we got really confused, but he told us that it was just around the corner (and it really was). So we actually stayed at 'The white house' hotel, which was very ok!

I stayed at Seymor for three nights in november 2007.

First of all: it was clean and the staff was friendly.

But: the bathroom is TINY, I could almost not turn around inside.
The room was very cold and there were no extra blankets.

The beds vere very uncomfortable (hard even for a hotel-bed)

Breakfast was okey, standard for a little hotel in london. Self-service with tea and coffee, bread, marmelade, cheese, yoghurt, cereals.

There were no safety deposit in our room AND we had to leave the key at the reception everytime we left the hotel. And when we came back, it was a new receptionist, and he just hand over the key without having a clue of who we were. It didn´t feel so safe.

The reception told us that due to a water leakage, we were to be relocated to Alexandra Hotel nearby. It was 8 in the evening and with my young son, it was a problem. Moeover Alexandra turned out to be very bad. Seymour washed off their hands once we went to Alexandra.
