While staying in this lightfully welcoming B&B, it will feel more like sleeping over at a friend’s house rather than in a hotel; albeit a particularly wealthy and well connected to friend. Each and every guest suite has spread across one floor of the converted Victorian town house. Guest rooms are quite roomy and uncluttered, with the exclusive clean white linens, polished wooden floors, modern furniture, and Asian art. There’s even a little urban terrace, which is a splendid spot for retreating with a glass of wine or the morning paper. Guests here can enjoy special rates at the well-equipped local gym, swimming pool, and spa, and even they can get a discount for breakfast at the trendy Tom’s Deli nearby (being owned by Tom Conran).
In this small hotel, which is formed from two 19th century town accommodates in a quiet garden square and each room has a unique character of its own; such as those with original Victorian fittings, that are nicer than others, but the elevator will make the upper floors more appealing (a relative rare, old style London hotels). Breakfast may come in the form of a cold buffet, though you can have a cooked breakfast for a few pounds. The lush little garden is quite lovely hideaway when the sun starts to shine.
Located almost next door to Paddington Station, this glittering modern boutique hotel is a perfect place for cheerfulness, from the friendly staff to the bold, colorful design scheme with its contemporary vibe. Public areas comprises of a stark style; which is playfully knocked off-kilter by the touches like the painted skies in the guest corridors and arty oversized prints displayed on the walls. Guest rooms are located on the small side, but are quite better equipped than those in some chain hotels, crafted with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and double glazing (which is a real plus in such a busy area). There’s even a very good bar and restaurant located in the downstairs.
This is an affordable and cheerful choice; which is located just north to Hyde Park offering clean, simple rooms at a decent price, along with a good buffet breakfast. Even cheaper rooms (£54) are available in the “youth wing,” where you don’t need to be young to stay, but you will have to share a bathroom.
