Historical Traveler Reviews Falcon Hotel London
My husband and I stayed at the Falcon Hotel with some Friends for a few days in November. The location was great, a couple minutes walk from Paddington Station. The first room was stayed in on the top floor was less than desirable. The bed was uncomfortable and the pressure in the shower was terrible. The next night we moved down to room 2 which was much better and cleaner. Overall, the hotel is decent, the price is reasonable for London and the staff is friendly. Although, I wish the rooms were a bit cleaner. Also, they are stingy with their towels, only 2 bath towels per day and that's it, no hand towels or face cloths!
The best I ever seen
I stayed at this hotel in October 2004 for 4 nights with my wife and found the place a reasonable place and very convenient location particularly with the tour buses just outside. Staff are nice too and the hotel feels secure with their security camera and monitors in everybody's view. We will be back realy Recommended!
We stayed there for 4 nights in 2003 and just loved it. The managers were very helpful - gave us breakfast on arrival at 6 am. Location was perfect - 2 minutes from Paddington Station and 30 meters from the Hop-on Hop-off bus stop. We had an ensuite room, so no going down floors to get to the loo. Couldn't do better value for money.
Warm friendly budget place
Little friendly budget place.. nicely located a short ride on comfortable train from the airport and then you are simply located on top of hyde park 3 minutes away, below average prices, seem to be busy all year round so they upgraded me to a double at no extra charge.. recommended
Went there in March and stayed 4 nites. Rooms and loo were small but what do you expect in London for less than 100 GBP per nite?? Breakfast was adequate and the location was great. 2 minute walk to Paddington thus touring London was a breeze. Hard to beat for a budget traveler.
Not the best
Quite freindly but also quite run down which I found dissapointing when their web site said recently refurbished. The rooms are very small and tatty but reasonably clean. Breakfast was very good but no sausages. One thing that did annoy me was they had a surcharge for using credit cards, again the website site said something about no hidden extras! The location was very good if you want to see the sites but unless you are used to a city be warned no double glazing and hence noisy at night also quite warm in the rooms. Overall OK but I would not go back.
Solid for budget travellers
I stayed at the Falcon for two nights in January '04. It is very close to Paddington Station, in a cluster of smallish hotels and B&Bs, thus convenient for express trains to Heathrow. I was traveling alone, and thus more flexible (and accommodating about hotel amenities, or lack thereof) than I would have been with the family. Indeed, I had (admittedly for a rock bottom price) the top floor single -- minute, and two floors down to a loo. But it was clean, everything worked, breakfast was OK (not great (no sausage!)), it was easy to get to and away from, into the City. In similar circs I'd stay there again; it suited my purposes fine. With the family I would probably go a little more upscale.
Okay rooms in London are very $$ and they are small. The Falcon had nice rooms and they were always cleaned very well. Breakfast was great! We were very happy with our stay and would stay again in a heartbeat!! Nothing fancy but the price was great even with the exchange rate. Also the location could not be better being 2 mins from Paddington you can catch train, tube, or bus anytime to anywhere!!! Go to their website for the best deal I found. --------------------------------
Not so good
In 1998 I was sent to the Falcon when the room I had reserved at the Repton was not available. (See my review of the Repton.) The room they offered me was not very clean or well maintained.
Admittedly, the price is low.
Good Value & Friendly
I spent one night here in May, 2002. It has a lovely location, situated on a small park very near Paddington Station.
My room was fair sized (by European standards) for a single, with a sink & tiny shower. Unfortunately, the toilet was down 3 floors (I was on the top floor). Everything was clean. The desk staff was extremely friendly & helpful.
Nothing special, but a fair value. Especially considering the great location. I recommend it for budget travelers like myself, who spend more time out of their room than in it.

Well that was an utterly stupendous week in St Petersburg, finally drew to a close this morning with a private guided tour through the Fabergé Museum. Just a few blocks from our hotel, it is in a former grand mansion and about 10 rooms are devoted to glass cases displaying these magnificent pieces that were mostly commissioned by the Tsars as family gifts. There were many eggs on gold legs that opened to reveal roosters, peacocks that sang, gold carriages and tulips. Done in enamels ...
... even went through a gift shop that used to be a dungeon and was where Guy Fawkes was tortured after attempting to destroy the Houses of Parliament. There were Royal Guards here that were much closer than the ones at Buckingham Palace which I appreciated because now I could get my picture next to one! Then there were the crown jewels. I thought there was only one crown. I didn't realize that they made a new one for each new monarch and ...
This past weekend we ventured to London. It was absolutely fabulous! Andy and I both agree that it has been our most favorite place that we have traveled to thus far in our time in Europe. The people were super nice, the accents the locals had were lovely, and the sights were beautiful!
Since this past Thursday was a German holiday, Andy had off work. So he took an off day on Friday so that we were able to have a long weekend in London. Early Thursday morning we headed to ...
... how big Taylor Henderson had become. That kept him for a few moments. He went on to sign other people's stuff and I had a look at my photo. It didn't take. I was so upset and really wanted another one but he was getting closer to his car. I asked him one more time, but as I went to take another photo my camera died. How unlucky can you get! This moment was when I said 'ah, my phone died' out loud, and got a response of a tap on ...
... Ahahahaha. So I think you get the idea that I love my job. There are only two things I don't like (other than mopping). IDing people. It's usually not an issue...people either need it or take it as a compliment. Apart from those who think I am taking the mickey and get agro when I decline them. Getting my days wrong. Getting to work on a Saturday, thinking it's a Sunday and tomorrow is your day off...only to find out your day off isn't tomorrow at all. So yeah, thats it! Lisa ...
