I stayed at The Gresham Hotel for 2 nights in early November and the first impression was decent. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the location of the hotel is good-just a 5 mins walk from Paddington tube and train station. The lift to the room as stated elsewhere is awkward as it opens both sides due...

The hotel was pretty ok. The room was small, but not tiny. The lifts were a pain. There was no way of taking the stairs up because the hotel seems to be spread across two buildings. So one had to take the lift, which opens on both sides. But it goes up and down in a crawl. The hotel is...

Wow, one place we won't be returning to. Booked to have two nights here after our wedding before our proper honeymoon In January...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
