Firstly, can I start by saying, ignore any of the bad reviews, those people need to pay the going rate for 5 star if that's what they expect. Literally a 2 minute stroll from Paddington Tube Station (turn right out of the Tube and first right onto London St., You'll soon see Norfolk Square) Check in was a breeze and up to the room on the 4th floor. let me just say, you need to be fit lol. The room itself has everything you need, but very small and a small shower 'room' in the corner. The room was mainly taken up by the double bed, which did give us a comfortable nights sleep, which is the main thing. There is a Hairdryer, plus you have a kettle, cups and plenty of tea, coffee & milk supplies, topped up on both days, as were the towels. The full English Breakfast was spot on and all staff were very friendly and helpful with directions. Lancaster Gate Tube station (5 minute walk towards Hyde Park) was best for Oxford St., Leicester Square, Chinatown and the like, using the Central line, £4.90 each way. It's also walkable at an easy pace in half an hour or so, (we tried both). The Natural History, Victoria and Albert and Science museums are all located very close the the South Kensington Tube Station. Walk to Paddington Tube and take the Circle Line to get you there. Again, £4.90 each way. Overall, for the price paid, location to everything, along with the Breakfast and staff, it is well worthy of a 4 on the rating (Any less is harsh) and yes, we would use again.

the location of this hotel near paddington station is the best thing going for this hotel. breakfast only lasted an hour and a half, so we missed our window of opportunity to enjoy the food both mornings. the front desk closed at 10:30pm, so i felt like we were on our own all evening with little “assistance.” there were many “rules” which made me feel unwelcomed. the shower stall was way too small. i’m a petite person and had no room to manuver once inside. there was a stale smell in the building that was hard to deal with. the beds were uncomfortable. rooms were noisy and we could hear people in their rooms next door and above. overall, the location to paddington tube station made these negatives bearable for 2 nights. the cost was not too bad for being within walking distant to restaurants.

Had a brilliant time at The Falcon! Good breakfast, wonderful/friendly service and a quaint room with a balcony. I was able to enjoy fresh air all night!!! If you’re a single ask for room 12A. :) The picture I’ve attached is from that very balcony.

Recommend highly but not room 4 (Bed totally unacceptable). If booking for two people book a room with two single beds. Staff very pleasant especially the lady who runs the breakfast room. She took away the pain of the bad nights of broken sleep. Rooms are clean and the breakfasts great.
