We stayed at the Darlington for two nights the end of October 2016. We chose the hotel because of the proximity to Paddington Station, the good nightly rate, decent sized rooms and also because they include breakfast. I did a lot of research on hotels near Paddington and the Darlington was the best value option. Rooms at some of the...

Me and my mum stayed here for three nights on a girls trip to London. We've stayed in Paddington several times before, and the location was great! Quiet area, but close to everything. The room was nice, very good beds and good shower - a rarity in London! Good breakfast, nice to be able to order eggs etc. Staff was...

We stayed at this hotel overnight as we were going to a concert at The Royal Albert Hall. The hotel is 5 minutes easy walk from Paddington Station and also convenient for Hyde Park and the RAH. We arrived early so we left our bags and went off for the rest of the day, returning after 11pm. Everyone was very...

Quiet, relaxed and nice hotel. Great value for money and really nice staff. Just staying for the night for work and would highly recommend it. The breakfast was also very good with a wide selection. The shower was particularly good, very powerful and lots of hot water. Top notch!

My second stay and quality was consistent. 5-10 minute walk from Paddington station, clean en suite rooms, breakfast includes both continental and full English options, good value for money. Only criticisms are that the coffee is a bit on the weak side and the room by the elevator/fire door was a bit noisy. But otherwise excellent and would definitely book...

A very basic hotel in a fairly quiet area of London. You'll have everything you need here- bathroom supplies, secure building, quick and ample breakfast. It's close to a number of pubs and restaurants for lunch and supper, and near to Hyde Park for whenever you want to take a stroll. It's also a great distance to Paddington so you...

I find this hotel good. It is not a 5 star hotel but it did exceed my expectation. The room was fresh, breakfast Ok, but WiFi somewhat slow. The hotel is located close to Paddington, Hyde Park and City (Oxford, Regent Street). I will return again.

Room (in fact a small suite) comfortable and its facilities good. Stay somewhat spoilt by poor receptionist and 'welcome'. Nor at all made to feel welcome and showed a complete ignorance of the local area when asking for directions - not even knowing whereabouts on the street map the hotel was actually located!

My husband and I stayed for a couple of nights here in November and would definitely stay again. The location is excellent, a short walk to Paddington but, even though our room faced the main road, lovely and quiet due to being set back from the main road. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby and within walking distance to Hyde...

“The singles are in the back and I am a light sleeper, so it is nice and quiet back there. I usually sleep with the window open and I didn't hear any street noise, so I would think the front rooms would be pretty quiet, too.”
