  Cardiff Hotel, London, UK.

Although describing itself as a hotel, this place is really just a glorified, if rather large, bed and breakfast. It certainly doesn't have any of the communal rooms you would associate with the term hotel and breakfast is the only meal served, there isn't a bar. Having said all that, it is not too bad, just one of a great number of similar establishments that proliferate in this area.

Check in was friendly and efficient, the room and bed comfortable enough with ensuite facilities in rather a cramped bathroom, and the breakfast the next day perfectly acceptable, albeit the breakfast room was pretty crowded.

I really am struggling to find anything else to say about this place except perhaps that it's proximity to Paddington Station (a short walk) may make it appealing to some.

The price quoted is for a double room.
