I've stayed in London hotels many times and this one is great value for a "London reasonable" price. Very attentive staff, very comfortable room. A huge plus is that it's a 5 minute walk from Paddington Station (at most) yet off the beaten track so not on the main street right by the station. Paddington Station is my go to area now that the Heathrow Express can get me to the airport in 15 minutes. Unbeatable!! Free internet and a desk to work at made this an excellent choice for a person travelling on business.
The staff at Grand Park said there was a maintenance problem at the hotel. They put us up at Shaeftesbury Hotel instead.
The hotel was closer to Paddington Station and they gave us complimentary breakfast for our inconvenience. Hotel was a four star and a sister to the Grand Park with identical features. So everything worked out towards our benefit. I would recommend staying there again.
Good hotel, 10 min walk from Paddington Station and Lancaster Gate tube for quick access into the Central Line meaning you can get easily across London. 2 minutes from Hyde Park for some greenery and a morning run.
Hotel in excellent location for Paddington, literally half a block away. But the room we were in 211 was tiny. no place even for a chair. The bed was maybe a double and filled the room. The amenities were nice, new, fresh, but room size disappointing. Complimentary water if you could get the door in the closet to open the small fridge.
This lively residential and business area borders Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens where you can stroll along canalside streets and check out the houseboats and historic Victorian homes. Plentiful shopping opportunities exist at Queensway and Oxford Street. Paddington Station, a 19th century building, provides a gateway to towns in the west of England, including Oxford, Windsor, Bath and Bristol.
