Shakespeare Hotel is around 100 yards away from the busy Paddington Station, which is one of London's primary underground and railway stations. The Bakerloo, District, Hammersmith, Circle and other lines are connected to this station. Also, the Heathrow Express train leaves from Heathrow Airport and arrives at this station. Another advantage of staying at this hotel is that you can easily visit various locations like Norfolk Square Gardens, Hyde Park and Marble Arch. The hotel was originally the home of an aristocratic family in the 1850s. Now, it is a great temporary home for budget-conscious travellers and businessmen in Central London. Converted from a Victorian style home to a hotel years ago, it boasts modern décor with a touch of quintessential Victorian style and is appropriate accommodation for groups of friends, business travellers, families and even solo travellers. There are five options, Single Room, Twin or Double Room, Triple Room, Quadruple Room and Five-bedded Room. Understanding how breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day by some, the hotel offers a hearty breakfast which you can choose in typical English or Continental style. If you're planning to walk around to various places near the hotel, request for a pre-packed lunch. Nothing beats enjoying wonderful food while watching Mother Nature in action and basking in tranquil moments at the historic Hyde Park.

    We stayed at the shakespeare this summer and were very pleased with the room we got. Therefore we went back and were rather unsatisfied with the treatment from the receptionist this time.

    The best thing

    The location is brilliant for restaurants, shopping and transportation. Clean and comfortable rooms (except the basement accommodation).

    The worst thing

    Upon arrival the receptionist asked us if we wanted a double bed room. As we travelled as a father and son we preferred a twin bed room and we got the key. To a to say at the least a horrible basement room. We went back and asked to have the double bed room in stead. The receptionist said there were none such available. We did not accept the fact and finally we got a nice enough room on the first floor.

    It's a basic but clean hotel. Very good location and friendly staff. It's near hyde park and oxford street, which is where all the shops are. Would recommend it!.

    Nice little hotel near hyde park. We were looking for something not to expensive but that was central and the shakespeare hotel more than served the purpose. There's a stop for the airport bus at marble arch, so we found it convenient to get to from the airport, plus a tube station nearby. The room was quite spacious and clean.

    Lo peor que no tenía ascensor y teníamos que subir a un tercer piso.

    Habitaciones limpias y desayuno adecuado. Lo mejor el precio y sobretodo la ubicación.

    Hotel muy bien situado con cercanía al metro y en un barrio con mucha vida. Muchas posibilidades de restauración cerca. La habitación estaba impecable y todo en orden. El desayuno muy completo y con mucho personal, para ir reponiendo. Lo volveríamos a elegir para ir a londres.

    Lo mejor sin duda la cercanía del hotel, comodísimo. Además, allí mismo hay un montón de bares, tiendas de souvenirs, etc. El desayuno está bastante bien para lo que es el precio, es buffet (hay fruta, yogurt, cereales, pan, gofres...), hay donde elegir aunque sea poco.

    En las habitaciones hay enchufes de usb!!! súper bien para poder cargar lo que sea sin adaptador de cargador.

    Lo malo: que el agua no es potable en las habitaciones y que no hay ascensor (en el caso de llevar muchas maletas o no poder subir escaleras).

    Pero, en general, súper bien. Los recepcionistas y todo el personal fueron súper amables.

    Mejor: ubicación y desayuno

    Peor: el ruido del metro que pasa cada 5 min que parece que se va a derrumbar la habitación. Tampoco hablan español.
