We chose this hotel for all the positive feedback from TripAdvisor reviewers, and I must say we were not disappointed. As advertised, the location is indeed perfect, but not just for the train/tube station (though to be any closer to Paddington Station you would have to be staying at the Hilton). Norfolk Square is a quiet enough neighbourhood (and it should be, as we're not very far from St. Mary's Hospital) so the odds are you will be able to sleep soundly at night (I know we did). But since the area is not strictly residential, not far from the Square, there's actually plenty to choose from if you're looking for dinner or a drink at the pub or if you're looking for a late-night convenience store. We found that the location is perfect because of this combination of access / quiet / amenities. Also, Hyde Park is a stone's throw!
I hesitate to call 113£ per a "cheap rate", but if you consider the market and what I've just said about the location I guess it's really not that harsh (there's a lot of competition around the whole Paddington area, so I guess they would have to be fools to try to rip people off).
A word to those reviewers complaining about the rooms being tiny: when you booked you probably saw (as we did) the room described as "compact", aka. tiny! No surprise here, you're supposed to sleep there, not jog in it. If you want to stretch your legs when up in your room, and don't mind paying triple or more, maybe you should try a suite at the Hilton. For us, our compact/tiny room was perfectly adequate for what we needed it for: to rest after a hard day's "touristing".
Service was ok, we were warmly greeted upon arrival and given all manner of useful informations, breakfast was your typical B&B "what can I get you" kind of deal (though we prefer the buffet, but it was adequate). One (very) small remark: the ladies attending at breakfast could be a bit more mindful of guests having just woken up and should try to not bang the cutlery on the tables when setting them (yes, this trifle was really all that we noted as negative in our stay).
Bottom line, do stay here! Don't expect a room where you can throw a party at, just one you'll sleep well in. Enjoy the great location!
