I looked for a hotel close to my works London office and the Shakespeare looked reasonable. Friendly staff, very clean but room very disappointing. Twin beds pushed together to mske a double, whick i know is standard in hotels. However maytress not pit together and beds slid apart very easily on the floor. Walls very thin, can hear every word in the room next door. Didnt go down for breakfast so unable to comment.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was one floor up from ground (in US 2nd floor, in UK 1st). Staff was pleasant, and the room was fine. Location was great - walked to Kensington Gardens, Museums, several underground lines (Paddington Underground and Paddington Train Station). One note, the hotel was very close to the underground and I could hear trains passing below. Unless you are very light sleeper, it should not be an issue. (If you are a light sleeper, I would think most City hotels would not be good). The prices was good, and I would go back again.

Fantastic affordable accomodation. Would return again. A LOT of stairs up to room for tired legs, but not a problem. Breakfast super - generous serving of scrambled egg. Full English if ordered previously.
