We checked in and we were told we had airconditioning and heating. The room was a family room with 5 people in it. We had to lug out luggage down a very small staircase (almost tripping) we were met by a disgusting smell and heat. We were given one small fan for the night and requested another one to be told open the window. Funny thing is when you open the window it slid back down. Fair to say we wont be back. good location tho!

Decent hotel close to Paddington station

Pros: Secure, clean, convenient, quiet
Cons: Breakfast not great. Soggy eggs, etc. Why not get a couple of bigger toasters (that fit more than 2 slices) so people don't have to queue for toast?
Location: Short walk to Hyde Park, Paddington Station, shops, buses.
I booked at Carlisle at very late notice after my booking at another hotel fell through. Basic requirement was proximity to Paddington station as I only had one night between flights in and out of Heathrow. Getting there was very simple- a few minutes walk from the station. I booked a single room and ended up in a room with 4 beds to choose from, so lots of space. A tiny but adequate bathroom, huge TV, tea and coffee. Room 1 was downstairs so only a small window, but I was only there to sleep. Great location to walk around at night and in morning to make the most of my brief visit. Breakfast was included- not great, but OK if you just want something simple. Friendly woman on desk who explained everything clearly and suggested a couple of places for dinner

Convenient hotel to Paddington Station

This hotel was well-priced, and conveniently located near Paddington station. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom, however, was very small, plastic, and claustrophic...similar to those found in caravans! This was disappointing, because otherwise this hotel is good! Breakfast was hearty and enjoyable.
