5 minute walk from Paddington Station
Posted Sep 6, 2016
I was supposed to be at this hotel but they transferred me to the Park Grand Lancaster Gate. Great hotel staff, consistently excellent across the board. Many thanks to helpful and attentive Bogdan, kind Tina at the front desk, and the breakfast lady, Geanina (SP?). My husband wasn't with me on this trip and I felt completely safe and comfortable here as a woman alone. It's an easy walk straight south from Paddington Station, which is great for Tube-ing around London or taking the train to Oxford. The degree of luxury in my room was delightful: a switch to warm the bathroom floors, rain shower, turn down service complete with chocolates on the pillows, fresh apples at the front desk, excellent housekeeping, and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. In the spirit of leaving a fair and accurate review, I must add that this is an adorable little dollhouse of a hotel, with a rabbit warren of rooms. This may not appeal to some if they like large hotels with sweeping foyers and lots of space. My room was tiny but luxurious. I loved it.
