Paddington Station was bustling with activities when we arrived.
The price for the studio serviced apartment was too good to be true at less than GBP60/night! That worked great for us 'cos accommodation was the biggest part of our trip expense as we were in London for 2 whole weeks.
And there was even a combo washer/dryer!!! WOW. And thank goodness for it, as I had to do my laundry 'cos I didn't bring enough clothes. Oh wait, there was also free WiFi...and we could check our emails and update our Facebook status on my little netbook!
Of course....not everything was perfect. The "serviced" apartment was only serviced twice in that 2 weeks we were there. And then, there was the issue of low water pressure. Unlike in our high-rise apartments in SG where the water pressure is actually higher at higher floors....the reverse is true in the old London buildings where the high floors would have very low water pressures. There were a couple of times when the water streams from the shower were reduced to as much as a trickle while I was bathing!
So apart from the 2 issues.....we were generally quite pleased with the accommodation in terms of the pricing, public transport accessibility (i.e. Paddington & Lancaster Gate stations and major bus routes), amenities (i.e. fast-foods, 24-hr grocery shops, restaurants/pubs etc.) as well as nearness to parks i.e. kensington gardens and hyde park. I wouldn't mind staying there again....but I'd know better to request for an apartment on the lower levels!
