          • Group of friends

            The best thing about this hotel is it's location as it very close to the shopping center such ad oxford street and othe locations. Also the location of the hotel is very close to paddington station which I used the train to come and go to the heathrow airport directly

            The bedrooms are extremely small and the beds are extremely not comfortable. They have to do something about it.

            Location

            No aircon, tv didn't work properper and was hard to see from bed as it was around the corner, two plug sockets in the room but they were used for the tv and cable so you couldn't charge phones, turn on kettle without turning off the tv. Ironing facility was very poor, ironing board set up on level one in a stairwell.

            The best quality about the Gresham Hotel is it's location, as it was very close to Paddington Station and Bayswater Road.

            I stayed in a single room which was exceptionally small, basically didn't have to get out of bed to reach the dressing table to out the kettle on!! The room was very noisy, I could hear people talking in the small hallway as if they were in the room with me. Continual noise from creaking stairs and floorboards. Only time it was quiet was between 1am-5.30am. Furniture and decor in desperate need of repair. Hotel managed to charge me a no-show charge, as they had made a double booking but in fairness did explain to me what had happened. I wouldn't recommend or stay in this hotel again.

            I was clean and warm. The staff was friendly and helpful.

            Our room was a little small but we were on the quiet side.

            The location

            The accommodation is tired and dated, I was shocked at the size of the room, absolutely tiny (double room)...standing room only. I had asked for a twin room but only a double (or should I say single) was available. The bathroom was like a broom cupboard, only one person could fit in it at one time. Only 1 plug socket, so you can only have one thing on at a time. It was difficult to fill up the kettle, the bathroom basin is too small to get a kettle under the tap...you need to find a smaller container. Toilet seat was dirty!

            The price was good compared to the other hotels around

            The rooms were relatively small and at some nights Sussex Gardnes street gets noisy at night.

          • Older travelers

            The location was very good for the places we were visiting and the underground system. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was adequate

            The room was rather cramped and the shower and toilet was much too small. We were unable to get ready together due to the lack of space meaning we had to get up very early to get ready separately

            The reception of the tv and all the channels available.

            The hotel was very convenient for Paddington station. The rooms were small but functional.

            The prices in the hotel bar were excessive. We were charged £15 for three drinks though we were refunded two pounds the following day after complaining.

          • Single

            Very close to station. Reception and bar area clean.

            Once you leave the bar area and reception the rest of the hotel needs updating. Carpets and decor is very tired. Single room is very small. Book a double room if you are staying here.
