Located a fair distance from the Paddington Station hotel cluster, the three-star Oxford London Hotel sits on the very attractive Craven Terrace, a cozy commercial street that feels gently upscale.
Pros: Clean rooms. Brilliant location near Hyde Park. Helpful staff. Mini-fridge and microwave in rooms.
Cons: Small rooms. A little pricey. No elevator.
The Oxford London’s 21 rooms are playful. Miniature Tiffany-inspired bedside lamps and framed prints of a gentleman in a top hat keep things fun. Yellow walls maintain brightness. Duvets and pillows match, in a dainty blue-and-white pattern. The décor struck us, frankly, as a bit odd at first, but it’s nonetheless pleasing and welcoming—cheeky even.
Of great use to independent travelers are the mini-fridge and microwave hiding in the extensive closet and cupboard space. Rooms are also equipped with a phone, satellite TV and coffee maker.
The private bathrooms are small but adequate and outfitted with a hair dryer (no toiletries).
Rates at the Oxford London Hotel fall just outside of the EuroCheapo range for London, but for the facilities and location, we consider this hotel a good value for those looking to spend a little extra for extra conveniences. The hotel can also be a good value for those traveling in January and February, when lower rates are available.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. Note that the hotel does not have an elevator.

About the Oxford London Hotel neighborhood
Although the area surrounding Paddington Station is situated in Bayswater, we’ve set it aside as its own neighborhood, as it’s packed with (mostly uninspiring) budget hotels. Paddington Station is one of London’s major transportation hubs, and the Heathrow Express departs from here every 15 minutes during peak hours.
