One of the best hotels in London this price class.

Very good value for the money (less than one red bill for a single). Quite modernized compared to other hotels in this class, clean. Good hot breakfast. Good location next to Paddington. If you are limited to this kind of budget, this is a great choice. I have stayed here several times and keep coming back as it is half the cost of other options.
Keep in mind that in this class of hotel in London, the rooms are usually extremely tiny, with tiny bathrooms, and showers you might not be able to turn around in. This is no exception, so don't expect the Ritz.
Staff try harder -- unexpected in this class (the lowest). In this class of hotel, the condition and cleanliness, and the attitude of staff, all say "you can't afford anything better, so what do you expect". Not here! I asked where breakfast was once, and staff member leaped from behind the counter and insisted on escorting me all the convoluted way there.
You may have a bum's budget (as I do, in a difficult moment in my business), but you don't feel like a bum here. Recommended.
