From Heathrow to Paddington Station is a 15 minute direct train ride. Once you get to Paddington, there are a number of places to stay. I stayed at the Olympic House Hotel. It is exactly what you would expect as a budget hotel. Saying that, it is clean, comfortable,convenient and safe. That is what you can expect. The room is...

The hotel was good for the price. It was only a block from Paddington station, some restaurants and a red tourist bus stop. Quiet at night. It was small, which I’d imagine is standard for London. The rooms and common areas were clean except for some stains on the bed spread. I’d stay there again but rely on the staff...

It is a good 3 star hotel, comfortable if it was not for the very high temperature of the room. No AC as well. Wouldn't go back there because of that. Otherwise, the room was reasonably sized, the bed comfortable and very nice location. The breakfast could be better, it is serviceable but rather limited in choices.

Nice hotel seems to be clean and well located close to Paddington Station. Rooms are small but adequate. We stayed a week here. WiFi from lobby was slow and free but worked ok with few people using at same time. Ok early in am. Breakfast included in clean modern area in basement. Very adequate but no fruits provided

This hotel was picked for its price and location (very close to the Paddington Stations). The hotel is on a very quiet street. The rooms are typical European--small but clean and comfortable. I just wish they used a fitted sheet of a flat sheet that could go under the mattress. Internet in the lobby is free but you need to...

My cousin and I checked in, and the receptionist only gave us one key. I asked for another one because there would be three of us and he said no, I can't. (Um ok?) We paid for internet for the week, but there is free wifi in the lobby. It said it was a no smoking hotel, but when we...

I expected the rooms to be small. That was okay. It seemed cleaned but the beds were HORRIBLE! You could feel the bed springs in the beds!!! And they wouldn't turn on the AC even though the day temp was in the 80's. Often our wet towels that we tossed in the tiny shower were simply re-hung.... "Breakfast" is served...

Good location, close to paddington station. Got a room that was located in the basement. Smelled like old cigarettes. Could hear everything above us, including walking around. Breakfast was annoying because you are forced to sit with strangers by kitchen maids although several tables are open, they hold these for parties of 4 or fill tables up with 4 people...

Hotel This hotel is on a street full of small hotels, parking is non existent and we had to follow some random man in a shirt to park up 2 streets down. Some random negotiation between him and another guy and we handed over £10 - very strange. The welcome was also a bit strange with I think the receptionists...
