The room and bathroom was clean... carpet could need a change though. But then again who use carpets those days?! Street is silent even though its only 1 min from Paddington station. If you can't sleep in the city I would say - go somewhere else... Room and bed was made daily. Bed was very soft, so depents what you...

The beds were dirty... the wallpaper was hanging off the walls... it stank of urine... its everything but a 3 star more like a 1 star at a push. DO NOT GO BY THE PICTURES...they are...

We luckily only stayed at this hotel for just one night (6 people between 3 double rooms). Rooms were very small and nothing like the ones that we had seen pictured online- very misleading. Room 402's bathroom was tiny! The rooms didn't even have a bedside table, we had to use a chair. My room (403) had really bad wallpapering,...

we have stayed two night in So Paddington London hotel which was my worst room I have ever had in my life. This staying was terrible.

Hotel is adequate for sleeping and breakfast, but the bathroom! If you are over 13 stone or so you will never get in to the bathroom, it is about 2 foot wide, you have to bend and slide to get on toilet, and cannot put arms up comfortably to wash your hair , that was my room, so if you...

Breakfast was stale cornflakes, peeling slices of cheese, cold hot water, stale orange juice, toaster that took forever to work. Boiled eggs ok. Fire doors banging loudly, front...

The location only is fantastic, 3 minutes from London Express, and Paddingotn metro station, few minutes from city center, walkable distance to Hyde park, also Halal food is available in this district, the stairs were terrible, smelly and noisy, carrying a bag on these stairs is a stress test, old hotel, uncomfortable bed and strange shower, smelly room, good breakfast

It is a very convenient location and there are many casual restaurants around. Just steps from Paddington Station so great for traveling from and to Heathrow Airport and other locations. The room was horrific! The stairs inside are very narrow and steep - practically impossible to bring a big suitcase up. I ended breaking the handle of the suitcase because...
