    Great Budget Accommodation


    Stayed for Two nights -Friday - Sunday - Hotel was easier than most to find from Paddington Station- seems to be spread over a few of the old georgian houses which inhabit Norfolk Square and seems to be having a makeover at the moment - no detriment to the quality of service was noted though - check in quick and easy - room had been recently renovated with a new shower room and new floring and decorating throughout - decent sized room and storage space and a hairdryer installed too - breakfast basic but adequate for the price we paid ( no one stopped us going back for more- cereals- toast fruit boiled eggs and buns were available along with juices and drinks from a coffee machine -- we didn't stay long enough in the hotel to see much else although we did note an internet enabled computer in one of the lounges

    Unique Quality: We had a front room facing the parkland area down the length of Norfolk Square

    Directions: Within two minutes walk of Paddington Rail Station with a wealth of shops and bars and restuarants/takeaways also easliy reached on foot

    Norfolk Square


    Grab a hotel in the Norfolk Square/Paddington tube stop area. It is an ideal location since it is close to Paddington (Heathrow Express dropoff, the underground, and a tour bus stop).

    There are a good number of hotels to choose from. I have stayed at the Shakespeare Hotel twice. Once was excellent. The second time I wound up in a supertiny room for the same price. The staff is curteous and helpful. If you choose the Shakespeare, be sure to ask about the room size when you call...not all 2 twin bed rooms are the same.

    Phone: 0044 20 7402 4646

    Directions: One block from the Paddington Station Tube Stop.

    seeking value for money?


    just a simple value for money hotel with good (english) breakfast. Quite handsome located near Paddington tube- and train and busstation (2 minutes walk). In the area you will find shops, restaurants and pubs. I stayed with my family in a quadroom for only GBP 90 a night incl. breakfast. You're quite near all the interesting places. No problem with trafficnoises. We stayed here between xmas and newyear in 2002; we will come back!

    Unique Quality: nothing special other then cheap, clean and quiet. Nice (Italian?) staff. No bar but pub around the corner.

    Directions: Paddington

Hotel Room

Will be visiting London On weekend of Sept 13-14th. Traveling on a budget. Need a hotel that's centrally located to attractions but in a good area. Continental breakfast a plus. Clean, nice, etc. Any suggestions?

London is expensive.

Hostels will be cheapest: look at or

Look at the official accommodation search engine on:

I recommend the Euro hotel, if it is within your budget:

You could try, they offer some budget hotels and youth hostels on quite reasonable prices (well, for London :-) ) I think they have a list of hotels they offer. Friends of mine stayed in the Lidos I think, and that was quite okay.

Have a nice journey

Hi there
A fabulous option at that time of year is They have rooms in VERY central locations, clean and well equipped and at a reasonable price. They are rooms used by LSE students in term time but have single, twins etc as well as multiple occupancy.Northumberland Ave location is right on Trafalgar Square and next to 5 star hotels charging 5 times as much.
