My wife and I needed a place to stay in London for two nights at the end of our trip in the UK last week. We found the Cardiff Hotel on laterooms.com and it had vacancies and was near the Paddington train station; making it an easy jump to Heathrow. Because of the third-party booking, I think we got a...

it's a good place to stay in London for few days. The room was clean . It is near the underground Paddington, so you can go everywhere easily

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend and would have no hesitation in making another booking. It is practically across the road from Paddington station. There are some renovation works going on but these did not affect my stay. Room had all necessary mod-cons and even a selection of herbal teas! Bathroom very small...

I have stayed at other hotels in the immediate area which were a comparable price, but this one came recommended (albeit from 6 years ago) so I decided to give it a try. Please note though - this review is about the room we stayed in - Room 7. I would hope that other rooms are better, as there are...

This hotel is s conveniently located, within walking distance of Paddington Station and the Heathrow Rail Link. I stayed there for 7 days and called it 'my home away from home.' The staff were very friendly and helpful. As already noted, this hotel does not have a lift and all material clearly states this. My room, a single room was...

We stayed here in November everyone was friendly, rooms were maybe a bit basic and needing update but clean and it is only somewhere to place your head! Breakfast was nice and a good start to the day. location was great just a stones through from the tube and you could easily walk into town. All in all good location...

When I was staying here I decided it was exactly how I would do a cheap hotel! They did the things I find important as well as any other hotel (eg. clean room, comfortable bed, everything in working order, helpful staff) but cut back on the things I don't care about (eg. room size, shared bathrooms, modern decorating). So you...

We've just returned from a short family trip to see the sights of London and enjoyed a pleasant stay at the Cardiff hotel. Daily room service meant everything was clean and tidy. Breakfast was nice with decent choice - Cooked English, Cereals, Yogurt, Fruit, Juice etc... and staff were friendly and nice. This is a no frills place reflected by...

Stayed here for a weekend with my daughter. Great location, very convenient for tubes and train station. Found the staff very friendly and helpful. The room, though basic, was very clean and comfortable. Beds comfy and sheets crisp and clean. En-suite was spotless, although tiny, more like a cupboard. The shower was snug to say the least, but the water...
