The hotel is very small and quite far from the underground but you can take the  bus if you want. The room is quite clean. The wifi is quite good but I can't make a call with wifi. The staffs are very friendly. They are ready to help you with everything. We had only one adapter. My girlfriend asked for... More

Stayed overnight on way back from Wexford. Very helpful and friendly staff- a special mention to Deborah in the bar- extremely efficient and aware of her customers- keep her!! Rooms were lovely, and when our friends requested a change of room in order to have a walk in shower, the move was done quickly and seamlessly. Rooms were lovely and... More

Perfectly acceptable, typical of the hotels in the area. Clean, cramped and relatively dated, but it's walking distance from Paddington so it's what you expect. Breakfast was better than usual for the area, in that a cooked breakfast was included.

Very handy only 5 minutes walk from Paddington underground. Very basic but was very expensive at €410 for 3 nights. Bed was very comfortable. Room was a little cold at times & the fridge in the room was quite loud. No bar in the hotel which was a bit disappointing. It's a good hotel if you're just looking for somewhere... More

The pictures on the website create an impression of a reasonably nice hotel and the rate kind of confirms that expectation. The reality however is that it's less than the cheapest pension I've stayed in. Both room as well as bathroom are extremely cheap in appearance and furniture and a 15 inch flat screen on a fixed bracket in a... More

There are a lot of hotels in the area around Paddington Station. Judging by the reviews of some of them, they vary from awful to way too expensive. The Gresham is at the end of a row of hotels, all looking fairly similar from the outside. It's a 5 minute stroll from Paddington mainline and tube stations, with plenty of... More

Good value, clean, good location. I've stayed a few times when the rates have been favourable and it does what it says on the tin. I wouldn't romance in it but I would've based a London trip here no probs.

We stayed for one night only. We were a family party of four and shared a family room on the fourth floor. Room was light and airy with an adequate en suite (lovely hot shower). Beds very comfortable. Overlooking the road and rooves, but not very noisy at night. Plentiful supply of tea making bits. All was clean, if a... More

Great hotel, comfortable bed, with a kettle, coffee, tea, sugar and milk as well as toiletries in the bathroom. Perfect just for sleeping and a great location as well. Only five minutes from Paddington Station and a short walk from Hyde Park as well.
