Good hotel, very close to Paddington station
Posted Aug 3, 2016
Very good central London hotel; right next to Paddington station, just a few blocks from Hyde Park. Lots around the area, all bus stops and other tube stations are very close.
If you are traveling with a decent amount of luggage you should be warned that there are no lifts and, obviously, some rooms aren't on the ground floor. This is pretty typical for the area, just was unfortunate because we had quite a few bags.
We had a 2 double bed room and, while it was small, it wasn't the smallest room we've encountered. The shower was tiny but just big enough.
The beds were nice because they were raised off the ground; you could put your bags UNDER the beds so it made the room bigger for that. Television was small but big enough. The area can be rather loud in the evenings. It is adjacent to a very small park but big enough for small kids to have a run around; maybe a picnic if it isn't raining.
The breakfast was... odd. It wasn't bad, except that maybe the room needs to be reorganized and they constantly ran out of eggs because they only cooked a few at a time. I wanted two eggs and only took one because I didn't want to take the last two!
Room was rather stuffy; they let us use a fan to help circulate the air; however, it was unusually hot so I'm not sure how it would be during normal times of the year.
