Historical Traveler Reviews Westpoint Hotel London
I booked a room at the hotel just by chance in 1998 and when I realized how convenient it was I came back in 2000 and in 2001.
Comfortable, convenient and good value
We stayed two nights in July 2004.
Calls itself a hotel but is really a large guest house. Very convenient for Paddington station (less than five mins walk). Room and public areas were very clean. Room was nice & bed was comfortable. TV and phone in room but no tea/coffee facilities. Bathroom was quite small and some larger guests might find getting on the loo a tight squeeze!
The choice offered in the Continental Breakfast was lmited (Corn Flakes, rolls, cheese & Ham, Jam) but there was plenty there. Don't bother upgrading the breakfast to 'full english' which consisted of 1 sausage, 1 bacon, 1 egg and beans - not worth it at £3.
Car parking (Open to the street but with barrer controlled access) is offered for £10 per day extra which is a cheap way to park in London.
All-in-all it was worth what we paid (£64 per night for two people) and, yes, I would stay there again.
Cosy hotel in an excellent location
I stayed at the Westpoint Hotel in November 2001. I must say that for GBP35 for a single room en suite, it is good value for money. The room is comfortable with a double bed and shower. The breakfast is generous and delicious. Best of all, it is only a 3-minute walk to Paddington station.
As close to a bargin as you get in london
Let me start this review by saying after traveling to london a couple of times that there are no deals in hotels. I found this to be a close as I was able to find. Each room has a wc and they are clean. the rooms are fine but on the smallish size which I think is std for london by US stadard. There is a nice breakfast included which can be upgraded to a large for a fair price. The location is great near hyde park and a few tube stops. THis is my first choice for a central london hotel but just remeber that there is not a lot to choose from in this area and price class
Wouldn't stay here ever again
Look elsewhere. My wife and I had planned to stay 5 nights but only lasted one. Fire alarm went off for an hour and a half our first night. The hotel staff blamed and berated the guests for the alarm going off. When guests asked a question, the hotel engineer was very aggressive, hostile and told people they could leave if they weren't (--) happy and to stop wasting his time. Hotel staff wouldn't cal the fire department until pressured by many guests.I witnessed this first hand. Spend your money elsewhere. Many better places in London for the same price.

Well - what a day!!! The tubes were hit with a strike - some lines closed, some stations closed. We had to skip our Abbey Road visit (have to catch it next time!!). Brekky didn't start till 8.30am, so it was a later start than planned. We managed to travel to the next station, then change lines to get us to Westminster. We found our Thames River …
... as the tiny birds busy chirping away outside. Lack of larger parrots, cockatoos and maggies quite noticeable in early morning, tho these tiny bird song starts well before dawn. Mark up to join me after daylight, and adds to diary. ..then kids up and showering ready for work. Light breakfast of plum,orange, raspberries and yoghurt. Managed earlier load of washing, using expandable clothes line and another on for Mary as we headed up Broadway Market ...
... something I had learnt when I came out the back of the theatre. They are people too. We are people too.
They are not super-human. I am not super-human.
But we are super humans.
P.S - People who think taking photos of performing artists...can you not? It's not only shallow, but bleedin dangerous!

... of the Abbey Road Studios. There were 2 men in high vests there, who were professional photographers who take photos of tourists who cross the road. We decided to take a few photos by ourselves first and while we were taking photos, a local (who was on her morning run) ran passed and snickered 'bloody tourists'. Mum and I had a bit of a laugh. I would be the same if I were living around there. I rang up Shauni to go on Abbey Road Crossing ...
