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 …
... hear the history of the Tower told in such a humorous way (the subjects would not have laughed...) We'd been pretty lucky with the weather for the Tower trip, sunny and clear. It was cold but at least it wasn't raining! Wednesday we headed over to South Kensington to have a wander though the Natural History Museum. Again, it's been redone since my last visit (nearly 20 years ago) with and eye to the user. We went to the mammal section to see the tigers. And the dinosaur collection ...
... to myself so could stretch out lying down and miraculously actually got some honest to goodness sleep! Now admittedly it was a snatched hour here and a quick 20mins there but given even in my own bed I can only sleep if it’s completely dark and quiet, the temperature is perfect and my covers are totally Goldilocks (not too heavy, not too light etc) and well basically if the stars align and I hold my little finger at the right angle to my ear or whatever this ...
This past week, especially the last few days, has flown by and sadly today was our last day in London town. Lorrae had taken a day off work to continue to play tour guide, honing her skills in preparation for when her mum arrives. It will probably feel like Groundhog Day revisiting all these places again. While the others slept in, I woke up early and started the day with a jog/walk through Kensington Gardens, much to everyone's disbelief, especially ...
... a narrow pedestrian alley next to the modern library. On our right was an old brick wall - the original wall separating the church burial ground from the Marshalsea Prison (we were on the inside of the prison). Families could live together in the prison, but the offenders couldn't leave - other family members could come and go. It was realised that debtors were unlikely to be able to repay debts if they were imprisoned and unable to work, so the prison was closed after ...
