Tony's House Hotel

Hostel
Save to wishlist

Tony’s House Hotel is just a three minute walk from Paddington station, which lent its name to author Michael Bond’s famous (fictional) marmalade-munching Paddington Bear and became the most famous railway station in Britain – until J.K. Rowling worked her magic and gave us Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross. The hostel is set on the charming Norfolk Square, which is home to elegant landscaped gardens – the perfect place to chill out on a summer evening.
