    3rd time staying”

    This is my third time staying at this hotel and I will continue to be back if I'm staying in London! The hotel is located close to Paddington Rail and Underground stations (along with a number of bus stops nearby), and is not noisy at night. My room was very clean upon check-in, and the housekeepers are always very helpful! Staff at the reception are also very kind and polite.

    Hotel is 5 mins walk from Paddington Station. You can take express train from Heathrow Airport directly or Piccadilly Circus line to the hotel. This area is so close to Hyde park and Little Venice canal. I love everything in this hotel. The price is worth to spend. I’ll definitely stay at this place again if I go to London.

    Great location, value for money, super helpful staff”

    We booked this hotel through agoda, but somehow agoda didn’t send the reservation to the hotel. When we arrived (jet lagged having been awake and traveling 25 hours), the front desk informed us they had no reservation sent through agoda. Rather than just saying they were sorry, Amber (at front desk) was so helpful and worked with us to talk on the phone with agoda to figure out the problem. Eventually we got it all worked out and were able to find our reservation and get a room. Could not be more thankful to Amber and the staff at this hotel for their help so late at night. They were all so very kind and accommodating. This hotel is perfect location, no fuss room yet really comfortable beds. We really enjoyed our stay and again, thank you to the hotel staff for being so helpful in sorting our reservation out!

    I booked this hotel on the same night due to my bookings in other hotels not allowed me check-in in the late evening. But very soon I stay in this hotel, they offer me the room on the ground floor because I have 2 big pieces of luggage. And the staff in reception is friendly and kindly guided me. The location is perfect coz it is just a few meters walk from Paddington Station, which allowed me to bring my luggage directly to take Heathrow Express. I will choose this hotel again if I visit London again!

    A Piece of Heaven”

    Paddington area is always my favorite place to stay when I go to London. For the central location but not too crowded. So Padding Hotel is one of the best choices for hotels. The location has the bus stop to a different part of the city; the Paddington central train station is just the corner; many shops & 24hrs resto and the most important very safe neighborhood. All hotel staff are awesome they are very helpful and they always makes me feel at home. Thank you so much my So PaddingtonHotel Family for taking care of me & my accommodation for 18 days. Definitely I will be back the soonest I get my corporate rate! Stay joyful and positive all the time guys!

    This is basically an ideal place for muslim traveler. The location is a good one with Paddington station is a 5 min walks and plenty of halal restaurants nearby as well as souvenier and groceries shops. The only disadvantage is that this hotel don't have an elevator which can be quite hard for traveller that bring large luggage. The room is quite ok for 2 travellers to stay in a room. I'm generally happy with my stay here.

Room for twin is very spacious and clean. Beds are a bit too soft, but still comfy. Fan/heater provided upon requests. Toilet is tiny. No lift.

    We had a double room which was small, basic but clean and fresh. The staff member was friendly and helpful (stored our luggage for free so we could go and look around until checkin time. We were very early!) The location is wonderful, 3 mins walk from Paddington, great from Heathrow express. The toilet and shower was ensuite but very tiny. If you are a very big size could be a problem! If you just want somewhere to sleep and freshen up, free tea coffee provided, this is about the cheapest and best value you can find in a great London location.

    The room was super small, by myself I would’ve been fine but my boyfriend is quite tall and muscular so he had a hard time moving around in the room and in the shower without hitting the walls or the shower head. Service was good, staff was very helpful and it was clean enough. Amazing location so I guess you pay for the location.
