Sometimes I struggle to find a hotel in London within my company’s expense budget, especially at short notice, and this was one such trip. There are good things to say about this hotel. It’s conveniently located between Paddington and Lancaster Gate and it’s clean and respectable (important, so close to Paddington station.) But my welcome was terrible – for some...

You'll be close all the action and attractions of central London, but you'll be sleeping in hostel-quality beds, undersized rooms, on a noisy street. I didn't experience bed bugs when I was there. The breakfast was a decent continental. You probably wont do much better for the price, without staying trying a city hostel.

Visited this hotel with a group of friends. The room was very basic, but clean. After arriving I walked up to first floor to find 2 men hacking plaster off walls; ladders; debris. After moving their ladder and holding a wire aside I reached the room. Dust everywhere in communal areas. This hotel is very cheap for London and does...

Don't go. That's the only advice I can give. Apart from its great location, I don't see any good reason to stay at the Gower hotel. Windows are so poorly insulated that it gives you the impression you sleep in the street. To top it all, staff is quite unfriendly and the breakfast is not even average.

Stayed at the Gower while up in London to see a show - December 2011. Convenient location - just a few minutes level walk from Paddington Mainline / Underground. Friendly, welcoming staff on Reception and at breakfast. Tsering, Receptionist, was particularly helpful with advice on Underground and Bus services for getting about. Room was of good size, clean and comfortable...
