Cheap, reasonable, no frills. A basic but well situated hotel near Hyde Park and Queensway underground. Recommended if you are on a budget and just want to put your head down. Staff had a sense of humour which I really found welcoming.

Nice hotel overall. There is no common room or waiting area, and more importantly no elevator (our room was on the third floor and we had to carry our bags up to our room through the stairs, even though I have to say the staff offered to help us with them). The room was very big and very clean, with a tv, a pot and teabags for us to use, a spacious closet and an adequate private bathroom. The only boring thing about the room was the common bathroom next door with its evergoing vent. I'd definitely come back for another stay although I have to say if you like a big breakfast this hotel offers less than others I've tried in London (coffee, tea, toasted bread, jam, honey, cereals, hard boiled eggs)

This hotel is excellent. It's very handy to the tube station, the area is classy and quiet. The staff were so wonderful, especially the lady at reception called Vigita from Lithuania! She was funny and charming and very welcoming. The room was clean, fresh, warm and had plenty of space. The view was of a beautiful tree lined street, you could even hear the birds chirping in the morning. It was very quiet and restful after the madness of central London. The shower was hot and had excellent water pressure. The bathroom was spotless and had room to put out your soapy things etc... The breakfast room was small but perfect, the ladies making tea and toast were quick and friendly. The food was simple and filing and the atmosphere was cosy. I would highly recommend this hotel and I'm very glad to have found a little gem in the heart of London. I've stayed in other London hotels which charge much more for much less.

The hotel is perfectly located just 3 minutes of walk from the Hyde Park / Kensington Gardens. The overall quality and price of the hotel is okay considering what you can expect in London. The romm itself was more spacious than I expected, but the bathroom was VERY small. Based on my experience with many other hotels at destinations all over the world, I was surprised that the hotel charges you for luggage storage on the departure day (2 GBP per item).

We were two elderly couples in good shape :-)who enjoyed our stay in London and the friendly atmosphere at Caring Hotel. The beds were very nice and our room lovely clean. Every question or request were well answered and we really liked the place. We stayed on the first floor in nice surroundings, our friends in the cellar in a nice room though the view from their window was nothing to talk about; anyhow we didn't go to London to see it from the windows of the hotel - so we are happy that we chose CH.

We booked one double bed room with shared bathroom but the bed is very small. It's surely not the standard size for two persons. It's just one single bed and they just put two pillows on it. The breakfast is just enough but it would be better if they provide a better quality of food such as bread?? not re-toasted bread! I wouldn't give this hotel for 3 star hotel.

Excellent location - walkable form Paddington and v. near Hyde Park/Kensington Gdns in a safe, elegant and leafy environment. The hotel is a great base for Central London and would normally be excellent value - we stayed during the Olympics and so the prices were not surprisingly raised quite a bit. Under normal circumstances the hotel is good value. No lift to upper floors so need to be reasonably fit if booked into an upper floor room. Even though WiFi is advertised only for public areas we got good reception in our room and it was free.

I stayed here with my husband and my mom for 2 nights. The hotel was very close to both the Queensway and the Bayswater tube stations and was in a safe neighborhood. It was also a block away from one of the hop on/hop off bus stops. The room we had was for 3 people with a single and a double bed. The room was spacious with a small table and chairs. The only negative issue we had was with the bedspread. The blanket was not clean at all. There was hair all over it. But we just took them off and threw them on the floor and slept in the clean sheets instead. When the maid came the next day she took the blankets from the room but did not bring us new ones.

You could feel almost at home at this hospitable B&B hotel. Really great value for money almost in the centre of London! Me and my sister in law stayed there 5 nights and both were very satisfied. After all hassle in the city, it was wonderful to come to the quiet, warm enough and decent hotel in the evenings. There is nothing luxurious, but that we did not expected. The hotel is situated in a very quiet street, no traffic, no people. The service what we got was also excellent. E.g. my friend hurt her knee when falling down on the street, the staff arranged everything for her: the doctor, taxis, they brought even ice into the room for her knee. The breakfast was also very good; there where everything what we wanted: coffee, tea, 4 different juices incl. tomato juice, boiled eggs, bread, toast, cheese, 2 different fruit salad, muesli. The room was cleaned every day, and there were always clean towels. Bayswater is very nice and sophisticated area with lot of beautiful houses and hotels. You could also find lot of restaurants, pubs, shops, supermarkets (e.g. Tesco express opposite of B. tube station, open until midnight) etc. just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Whiteleys shopping centre and Boots are also within 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Notting Hill is also quite near, you can walk there easily. We found out that Bayswater is the best and nearest tube station, so we recommend to use this station. Bayswater and the hotel area are also very secure. Couple of times I walked alone from the tube station to the hotel quite late in the evening and I was not scared at all. Also I visited alone some pubs (my friend could not come because of her knee) in the neighborhood and no problem :) All the people everywhere in London are very friendly and helpful. I really would recommend this hotel for everyone who likes to stay at small and comfortable hotels with reasonable price in London.

I think the hotel is a good choice if you are looking for something near the city centre at a reasonable price. The rooms are okay in terms of spaciousness and quite newly done up but what's really small are the bathrooms. And unfortunately ours was not totally clean when we arrived, either. Breakfast is continental only with a rather limited choice. But the staff are nice. The hotel is located in a privileged part of London and access to the city centre is easy by subway. So I still think it's good value for money.

Nice hotel in a nice area. A good ten minute walk from Paddington Station.On arrival at the station with all our luggage we asked a cabbie to take us there but he refused and said it was not far.So if your at Paddington Station and you get fobbed off just demand to be taken and save the hike with your luggage. Room is very small but OK for the price.After all this is London.Staff very courteous and efficient.There is no lift or porters so If you are elderly and not very mobile this hotel is not for you. Breakfast is adequate served in a nice well furnished room by nice ladies.All in all a nice base to see London.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Caring Hotel. We found the reception stuff to be very friendly and helpful. The location was also very convenient and quiet. We liked being close to Hyde Park and we went there one day for a walk. We usually caught one of frequent buses that ran along park, a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The Paddington Station was a ten-minute walk and has express trains to Heathrow Airport. We did get confused when we first arrived since there are 3 small separate sections of Craven Hill Gardens and we hadn't looked closely at a map. We had one of the 3 person rooms and there were only 2 of us, so it was quite spacious. The beds were decent and clean. The bathrooms were quite nice and looked recently remodeled. We also stayed one night in a much smaller room on the top floor with a shared bathroom. That room was not nearly as nice but it was fine for one night and was quite inexpensive--72 GBP. The stairs are a bit steep with luggage but OK if you're in good shape. The breakfast was substantial, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, rolls, etc. The women working in the kitchen were friendly and brought toast and pitchers of milk to your table very quickly. The coffee was quite good. After 3 days we were a little bored with the breakfast and ready for a change. We also had good WiFi coverage in our room at no extra charge, which was very handy. We liked the friendly staff and the ambiance. We would stay there again.

I found the staff at the Caring to be very nice and helpful in terms of guidance to various places. Due to the way my booking was done, I was forced to change rooms as the room I was in had been previously requested by another customer. Suffering from the flu when I arrived didn't help much and the hotel doesn't have a lift nor was I offered assistance with luggage. I requested a room in the back as they were working on another house in the community and the noise was interfering with my sleep. They accomodated my request when I was required to move (On a positive, the room was ready) Back of house, the TV only received a few channels and WI FI was weak. A continental breakfast was complimentary, typical breads, cereals, fruit, juice and served in the breakfast room in the basement. The Caring Hotel is in a beautiful section of homes and is a 10-15 minute walk to Paddington. The building is lovely and the rooms are spacious, the rooms that I stayed in had full baths. I would definitely stay there again and based on the other people I met while staying there, they were repeat customers. My only issue was that I notified the desk regarding the TV and upon checking out, they acknowledged that there was a problem. They were aware that I was sick for most of my stay and I think they should have offered some form of compensation, or a credit towards a future stay, there wasn't even an apology. Again, I also would have expected them to ask me if I needed help with my luggage when I checked in, but they didn't. I also had to ask for the WI FI password. IMO, this is something that should have been automatic on check in. I think if the Caring did that, Caring would embody in the way they treat their customers as well as the name. While disappointing, it isn't enough to keep me from staying there again. As a notice to potential visitors, there is no lift and I believe the home to be a five story walk up, so if you have luggage or children or have troubl

The breakfast room was bright and the breakfast was substantial. My only hiccuip was getting my wake up call the day I left 1 hour too early.

Very nice little and cheap hotel in the center of London, with an excellent quality-price rate. The room was small but clean and quiet. The breakfast wasn't very varied, but good enough for the price you pay and you can eat all you want. The common bathroom was very little but comfortable and was always very clean. The neighborhood was very quiet, with lots of shops and markets very near. Also there are 3 metro stations at no more than 10 minutes walking, very important in London. The best of the hotel is the location and the quality-price. If I come back to London someday I would probably go to Caring Hotel again. Highly recommended for travelers who want a cheap trip without luxury.

Excellent service of staff! they prepared breakfast before offical time. We forgot our train tickets in hotel room, and they helped us on phone with getting new ones, and sent us original tickets to germany for free! That's really nice! Some rooms are very small, but everything is clean and it's absolut enough for sleep at night!

The hotel was quite adequate for 4 days for myself and my daughter. Just found it odd that, in the bathroom, there were no hooks for the towels and no toilet-roll holder - both of which would have been possible. Situated in a quiet area, 10 mins. walk from Paddington, with plenty of eating possibilities in between. Staff vaired a lot but were all very friendly and helpful.

Just as the name suggests, the atmosphere is 'caring' and the hotel is excellent value for money. Great location, very clean and a safe option.

Wonderful location, easily reachable, with mostly nice stuff (the brown receptionist girl was not the very kind type). The rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean. We didn't mind the small room, but the paper-thick walls made us some nights with not too much sleep because of our neighbour, and the door-shuts are really annoying in the middle of the night. Breakfast is good enough! And the weight measurer is a good idea, we liked it very much! I would really recommend this place, it's a good choice if you are in London. Don't hesitate to choose this when trying to find accommodation!

Lovely Hotel, not too far away from all visitor attractions. The staff, mainly Russian and Ukrainian, really could not have been more helpful and pleasant. The lady on reception on our arrivel even took time to teach 8 year old Joshua alittle Russian! Thank you all so much for a very comfortable stay with you, we'll certainly be back at a later date.

The room was really microscopic (around 6 sq meters) and the bathroom was designed for a caravan, but otherwise the hotel is clean, quiet, conveniently located 10 minutes walk from the Heathrow Express at Paddignton, and reasonably priced. I would only alert large people and/or travelers with lots of suitcases that there is really not much space.

Look no further! Caring by name, caring by nature. Absolutely perfect - Pro's: beside Hyde park and near tube, breakfast included, spacious triple bedroom, cheap prices, clean room and cleaned each day, quiet location, friendly staff. Con's : really none - if I have to pick one, it would be that there was no shower soap provided in the bathroom. But that is really not an issue and quite minor. Definitely recommend this to a friend!

I had expected the worst. Such a central hotel to that price? Something must be wrong. But no - the room was small - but clean, and had everything I needed, I have never seen such a small bathroom before, but it had bathtube,toilet and sink - so what more could I need? The surroundings were excellent. Many good restaurants, shops etc. and it was close to both underground, bus, and it takes about 30 minuttes to walk to Oxford Circus. If you want a cheap accomondation in a central place, you can not have anything better.

the first room was very small, we changed to another room which was bigger, but unfortunately located in the cellar. I can still recommmend the hotel, as location is good and price/value for london quite okay.

a parte il fatto che non ci fosse l'ascensore (ma non era un problema per noi poichè eravamo al primo piano) tutto come descritto sul sito. Personale cordiale, camere ampie, il bagno un pò ristretto ma pulitissimo, cambio biancheria giornaliero, a 2 minuti a piedi dalla fermata di Queensway (central line) e oltretutto zona molto vivace ricca di negozi, pub e locali. Quando ritornerò a Londra tornerò sicuramente al Caring Hotel

Situated not too far from Paddington station, I found the location to be very convenient. The room was a bit small, but for the price very acceptable. The breakfast provided was quite tasty, and the only little discomfort was due to a man playing tuba somewhere in the same building, still, it was at daytime and I believe it has little to do with the hotel managers. I would recommend the hotel as a good place to stay if a location close to Paddington is desirable.

A basic hotel, but clean, and service was very willing and welcoming. Extremely well situated for Paddington/Heathrow Express and tube services, in pleasant area of London. I was staying for one night, on business, and it was adequate for my purposes and good value for money

The carpet condition and bedding let the hotel down. Dirty marks on the very worn carpet, sheets that didn't fit the bed and had holes in them and old towels was disappointing. We had an ensuite, but the shared bathroom was next door and was very noisey when being used, particularly late at night.

We (couple in the 40s) stayed at the Caring for 5 nights in September 2010 an can recommend it. It is perfectly situated, 2 Underground lines, buses to Piccadilly Circus nearby. Clean and friendly. Breakfast ok, though not worth a recommendation. We had a double room w private bath, space was ok for a London hotel. Excellent price/quality ratio, a good value for an accomodation in London. We would come back on another trip to London.

Good value for money, clean and comfortable. Like an improved version of the old-style Paddington B&Bs where I used to stay happily years ago. No lift, but that's not a problem for fit travelers. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I would certainly stay there again--and plan to if/when I return to London next year.
