Central London Map:

We have produced a summary map of our location compared to central London'sCentral London Hotel Map major tourist attractions. 

If you are interested or want to check exactly how we are located in relation to major areas of London go over the map to see it enlarged   

Directions on how to get to us: (Also see transport below)

1. From Paddington Rail Station: Turn left towards Praed St. When at traffic lights turn left into Praed St. Then turn right at the the road with  Burger King on the corner to London Street and take the second road on your left. AA Falcon is 100 yards on your right. [Warning: if you have spent more than 2 minutes walking you are lost and you should ask directions to Norfolk Square!]

2. From Paddington Underground Station: The underground has two exits on Praed St. When you get to street level look for Hilton Paddington. It is a large 1800s building in white stone. If Hilton is on your right you need to turn left towards Burger King. If Hilton is in front of you on the other side of the road then turn right towards traffic lights looking for a Burger King on the corner of London Street. Once you are in London street take the second left turn and you will be in Norfolk Square. We are the 5th building along on the right. [Warning: if you have spent more than 2 minutes walking you are lost and you should ask directions to Norfolk Square!]

Important: Do not get a taxi from Paddington station to our hotel. We are really only a few minutes walk from the station! We have had horror stories of taxis charging our guests ?0 by taking them around London for 45 minutes (in one case we managed to locate the taxi driver by his number and recouped the money...hope he is reading this!). If you have lots of luggage or have walking difficulty tell the taxi driver we are round the corner off London Street not more than 1 minute drive. If you are unhappy with the charge get a receipt and the cab number, displayed on a white plate inside and outside the taxi, so you can file a complaint and get your money back.
