Spent 1 night here in January 2012. The proximity to Paddington Station makes getting around London easy, both by tube and bus. The walk from the platform of the "Hammersmith & City" line to the hotel entrance takes 10 minutes. Due to some construction works going on at the station, the temporary exit to Sheldon Square gets closed at 23:45...

I am not being too harsh when I write this review, I really was not as happy with the hotel as the other reviewers seem to have been. The hotel is located waaay out of the way, which is ideal for Paddington station but that's really about it. The staff were friendly and the hotel was modern, but I felt...

A great find tucked up behind Paddington train station which you can walk to within about five/ten minutes. Its quick to get into central London on the tube.

I have stayed here many times now and thought I should mention that each stay has been perfect. I never stayed more than just the one night as a great location to use Heathrow Express in the morning and to connect to central London for a one night stay in the city.
