"Good location but terribly small, expensive room"
Room EXTREMELY small - very old and bad smell throughout.Genuine Expedia guest review
Okay to stay for a couple of days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, small (single) rooms, price right"
Great location, budget-friendly rates and small, small single rooms. Fine for a single person traveling who will not spend much/any time in the room. I had to place my suitcase on the nightstand to have room to walk from the bed to the bathroom. Mattress was uncomfortable and had a plastic cover of some sort - it made for a warm, sweaty and uncomfortable […] sleep. Staff was polite and nice. Breakfast was fine and served fairly promptly.

"OK to walk around and not spend much time in hotel"
Quite good geographical position, yet too small rooms. Concerning staff and service - they are friendly, but you need to ask about things.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Basic and easy access location..."
We needed a hotel that was quick and easy to get to because we had an 18hr layover at Heathrow an wanted to stay in the city rather than at the airport. It served that purpose and was relatively cheap, but that was about it. It's in a bank of about 20 hotels right near Paddington Station, with very little character. The room was marginally clean (bedsheets […] were stained, eww) but there were 3 beds, coffee, tea & buscuits in the room and a fridge. For us (a family with a 1year old) it wasn't the best, but if we were a group of students looking for cheap digs in London it would be a great place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good proximity to most locations"
overall very small room and very basic amenities.. good breakfast ..perhaps the staff could be nicer when answering some questions about cab fares etc..everything felt like it was a big hassle for them to deal with..would not return to the hotel even though it was very conveniently located to buses tube station etc..there are many other sussex garden […] hotels that have some better amenities Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you paid for"
You get what you paid for. The hotel is very simple, a tiny bedroom and bethroom, but it was clean. No surprises. Location is excellent - very close to Paddington station and the Hyde Park. Restaurants and bars in the area as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good if you don't have high expectations"
This is a reasonable option if you are looking for a low-cost place to sleep. The location close to Paddington and Lancaster Gate tube stops makes getting around easy, and the bed was OK for a budget hotel. If aesthetics are important to you, this may not be as good of an option...the paint and carpet seem to date back to the Thatcher era if not before. […] Clean enough, just worn. Staff was unfailingly pleasant and accommodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place....just kinda small"
The room was fine. It was extremely small however that's what they say american's usally think of all of the European accomodations....which we did...lol It was a really nice little place. It was small and their 'largest' room still only had twin beds. But we were only there 2 nights and it was pretty affordable. But one of the clerks was extremely […] helpful. Showing us on a map of places to go for lunch as well as places to avoid at night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, Free Wifi"
The Pros: Free Wifi, breakfast, clean bathrooms, friendly staff, conveniently located near shops, restaurants and very close to Paddington Station. The cons: Old building turned into a hotel, small rooms, TV and elevator didn't work well, no AC, can be very noisy at times. I wouldn't stay here again, except if you're budget concious and only staying […] for a night and just need a place to sleep and shower. Based on the quality of the hotel, I don't think it deserves a 3 star rating, but more like a 2 star. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel in a central location"
Overall comfort level is moderate. But for thi price range is a good choice close to central londonGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I had one night to spend in London, and if we have another opportunity we will never pick this hotel. While the location was what we were looking for, very practical for shops and stations, the quality of our room was awful. The bedroom barely contained the bed, which was very uncomfortable and questionable if fit for use. The bathroom was […] a small cubicle and had mold problems. Our room was adjacent to the stairwell and we could hear everyone all night long. Needless to say we slept (tried to ) with our clothes on, did not use the bathroom and left as soon as we could. Our advice to future guests, go somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mediocre 2 star hotel at best"
No air conditioning anywhere in the hotel. No ice or in room refrigerator. Our first room had a broken window, a TV that didn't work, no telephone and it was so small we had no place to put our suitcases. Our second room had filthy walls, a tiny, fuzzy analog TV (only slightly larger than an iPad) that required two remotes to operate, a telephone that […] rang busy most of the time, only one plug to charge our cell phones or iPads but you couldn't turn off the lights without cutting power to the one plug. We had constant problems with our door key and our 'Wireless Digital Safe' operated only with a key (5 Euro deposit). The only elevator was seemingly possessed. We stopped using it after the first day (we walked up and down the 40 stairs to the second floor). We are seasoned international travelers. We know good vs. poor hotels. The Gresham is one you should clearly avoid. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location and good service"
The beds were hard as rocks, but the staff was lovely and the rooms were clean and accommodating. It was just a short walk from Paddington Station and a lot of nice restaurants. I wish we had stayed there again instead of the other place we stayed!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay at the Gresham was better than advertisedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not fancy, but nice"
The hotel is in a great location if you're planning on being in the Leeds City Centre. The rooms are clean and modern. Sure, the beds could be softer, but life goes on :). The breakfast is good -- solid options (both hot and cold). The staff is fantastic. It was a little stuff in our room (time of year... too cold for a/c, a bit humid, and moderately […] warm), so they brought us up a desk fan. I called down to ask for a cab and they called. Just a couple of examples... the service is first rate and very friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was very convienently located two blocks from the Paddington Station which has the Heathrow Express and several of the Tube lines. The single room was very small and cramped but doable for someone who does not spend much time in the room. The internet and TV were great. Overall, a good value for its location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny, quaint, comfortable hotel in a great area!"
I enjoyed my one-night stay here! My room with a twin bed was very small but it was perfect for me. I was only staying one night and I needed easy access to the Underground. Just a very short walk from Paddington Station, this location was perfect. The street is very nice and just around the corner there are a number of businesses and nice pubs. The […] staff was very friendly and accommodating and I could not have been happier with my stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Gresham Hotel London"
Low rate. Clean. Small, cramped rooms that are randomly numbered - finding our room was like going on the up-down stair cases in a Harry Potter movie.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good place to stay in Paddington--for the price"
The room was extremely small and the bed was somewhat lumpy. But things were clean and the the staff was friendly. This is no frills and a place to sleep and the price was right. Walls are very thin and you can hear what going on around you. The location is great, just a short walk to the Paddington train station that can get you pretty much anywhere. […] Very cose to Hyde Park and a couple of miles from Buckingham Palace. Lots of restaurants close by. Wireless Internet worked fine once they provided the password.

"Good Location but Noisy"
Room is small. Shower is really small. The hotel is very noisy especially if you get the first floor. You hear people all night. No elevator. No breakfast included. But good places around. 5 minute walk to Paddington station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yet Another Unacceptable Small London Hotel"
Over-priced. Phone system didn't work. Tiny room. Good location for Paddington station. But wouldn't recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location, but not much space in the room. Single file around the bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"May be worth it for good price"
Location was good, very close to Tube station and train station to Gatwick airport. The only real complaint was the room was a bit cold and the mattress was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. That may have just been our room though because the mattress appeared very worn as though springs were coming through. The place was clean though, service was fine, decent […] for the price.

"Decent for the price"
I chose this hotel for the price and location. Its convenient to Paddington station which goes directly to Heathrow. Its all convenient to Picadilly and Trafalgar. The room was in fine shape but the bed was very hard as it was only a thin mattress on a board.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms are real small and lift is really low.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful stay. It was extremely clean and in Zone 1 where a lot of London attractions are. I would stay here again. It is amazing for the price. The rooms are small, but london is not cheap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, walkable to a fantastic grocery called Waitrose on Edgeware Street. Bed was not comfortable at all, and as a result, I had a bad back. Locating my room was hard. Room was extremely small, but then again I had a single with a bathroom. Its even smaller than my college dorm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for, remember that."
would have much preferred to pay more and stay at Victoria station. The price was reasonable, the two beds took up nearly the entire room and the bathroom shower required some real cleaning. but we did not spend much time there anyway. the tube was within a few blocks, and there were a couple decent restaurants in the area. the staff did what they could […] to be accommodating, and the morning breakfast was alright. if you are price conscious and willing to put up with a few things, this is definitely an option in London.

"Reasonable value for money and great location"
I chose the hotel because it was reasonably priced and close to the church for a wedding I was attending. My room was small but had everything I needed and was clean - the decor in the hotel overall just looked a bit "tired". Traffic noise facing the front of the hotel was a bit of a problem, but I had specifically chosen the location! Breakfast was […] reasonable - no frills but well cooked. Reception was excellent.

The Hotel is so near Paddington Station and easy for central London. The staff were friendly and very helpful and with a great breakfast we will certainly be staying hear again. If I was hyper critical I would say it needs a bit of a re paint but this did not spoil our stay. Very good value for moneyGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"GREAT LOCATION & FRIENDLY STAFF"
Stayed there in mid October 2013. 4 Adults in a family room. 1 double bed and 2 single bed. surprisingly it is bigger than what we expected. Great location, it really only take us 5 mins to walk to the hotel from paddington station. (of cause excluding the day of arrival and departure) cannot expect to walk fast when you're dragging your luggage right. […] give youself 15mins when you're dragging your luggage. Friendly and helpful front-desk staff. Staff on duty were all so approachable and they are all very well adequate with information. cleaniless is good. We really enjoyed our stay here, we will recommend to our friends and families and go back to stay there :) Cheers from Singapore. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"BUILDING SHOULD BE CLOSED"
Great staff, but building made of paper. Could hear every word said by people walking past in the street. First room they gave me had broken mattress with springs sticking out. Staff were good and moved me to another room, but it was under the reception area and every footstep echoed like thunder in my room. Once staff started to arrive at 6am it was […] like trying to sleep on a cinstruction site. Never been in any building with such thin walls. Don't go there unless you are a very heavy sleeper! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get what you pay for!"
Certainly no luxuries, more of B&B standard than hotel standard (sash windows for example gives you the impression of the style of the building). No bar in operation. A few more signs directing guests to the dining room and what was on offer would be useful. Did what it said in the description, no more! Cleanliness ok, service ok, amenities non-existent, […] location ok for Paddington and Lancaster Gate tube stations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very small hot room, rattling window overlooking noisy street, uncomfortable creaky bed, shabby decorations and furniture, poor breakfast (timed too late on a Friday to actually have before work), TV signal kept breaking up, wireless kept dropping out, no safe in room, shower head dripped cold water when in use, no redeeming features whatsoeverGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Step back in time to 1974"
I stayed here for one night in a 'superior' double room. i think this meant that they had squeezed in another double bed. The room was shockingly bad. Blankets and bed-spreads ... in London, in 2013?? for £164??? Coving painted, but clearly straight over black condensation / mould underneath. En-suite ... uggh. Had to fix shower - which was an attachment […] to the bath, although at some point it had been separate. Bath didn't drain, and bath was learly grubby as this then swashed around my feet. Note on doors near lifts saying 'under no circumstances are any guests allowed in the rooms at anytime" tells a tale of how it may have been frequented!! Only positves are location (but there are lots of up to date hotels in area) and pleasant, helpful, reception staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not recommend this hotel to any of my friends."
Extremely small rooms. Rude staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
""No frills" hotel. Great location for shopping"
The hotel is close to Paddington Station which was great whenever we wanted to use the tube. It's easy to find, with shops like Tesco and Waitrose just down the street and loads of restaurants. We booked a room with a double bed which was really small, but we were only staying 4 days and were always out anyway so it wasn't a problem. The staff were […] nice enough, but they didn't seem bothered when we left (we just handed in the key and that was it). There were loads of hotels on this street, so I'd maybe check out the other ones before deciding to go back to Gresham Hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Average hotel in good location"
Stayed at this hotel on hot summers day. Room stifling hot with very small facilities. No air conditioning or circulationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Basement, windowless rooms!"
Windowless, interior basement room with no air conditioning on the hottest day of the year. No air movement at all. Fridge in room either not powerful enough or only working intermittently - took overnight for soft drinks to cool! Staff friendly but ill-equipped e.g. no change behind bar when paying for drinks.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok if just seeking a place to sleep"
It would be ok if there was air conditioning but no air, 30 Celsius heat, and just a fan to cool off makes for uncomfortable sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Conveniently Close to Paddington Station"
For an affordable London hotel that's near the tube and/or train station (Paddington), the Gresham is a hotel to consider. The rooms are fairly basic (typical of an affordable London hotel) and clean. Breakfast is available (may have to pay extra, depending on your booking). Paddington is about a 5 minute walk away...as a middle aged woman I easily […] rolled my two suitcases to/from the hotel. And there are restaurants/pubs just 1 minute away.

"Great location and comfy beds"
We had a great stay in London and the Gresham Hotel was brilliant. We arrived after spending what felt like a lifetime on two planes getting there from Brisbane via Hong Kong. We arrived at about 8.30am and could not check in till 2.00pm. The hotel allowed us to leave our luggage there while we started our holiday with a walk to Buckingham Palace and […] down to Big Ben. By the time we got back our room was ready. The bed bed in the world awaited us. After the long day we had had it was a welcome relief to lie down on a lovely bed. The Hotel was close to Paddington Station and walking distance to many attractions. It was great to have the 24 hour desk service allowing us to come and go at any time. It was also great the there was a map available from the desk. We loved it and would definitely go there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Paddington Station, but small!"
About a 3 minute walk to Paddington Satation, so that was very convenient. The room was basic and the shower was all of 2' x 2', so no room to bend down to retrieve your soap and shampoo! Creeky floors. English breakfast for 5 pounds avaiable. Reasonably priced hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel inspector should have a go at it!"
Shower cubicle too small for big person. Carpets in corridors and stairs were outdated. Bathroom not clean- spillage scour on the door. As the room was not to satisfaction did not use breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't bother - carpets in room dirty - husband told me not to walk on it without shoes on?? Rooms are definitely ready for a refurb. not sure about the rest of the rooms but ours was pretty horrible more like a hostel than a hotel. Has a small bar - asked them for ice and tonic didn't have either. We travel a lot but can honestly say this is probably […] the worst hotel we have stayed in. The sheets were clean which was a bonus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
