The whole experience from start to finish was first class. During our stay we never met a single member of staff who spoke English as a first language; what are we going to do as a country if these polite, hard working people leave when we leave the EU. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in London chose...

This is my go-to property in London. It is close to Paddington. The breakfast is good. There is a safe and refrigerator in the room. The beds are comfortable. The staff is friendly. The wifi works well and is complimentary. The decor is somewhat dated. A number of the rooms are on the small side, but are not too small

We enjoyed the hotel and its close proximity to Paddington Station and some good restaurants and pubs. The room was comfortable and attractive, and there was no problem with noise. The breakfast was quite good, and also ample. We found all staff to be highly competent, knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. The staff at breakfast was especially to be commended....

Darlington Hyde Park is conveniently located about two blocks and 10 minutes walk to/from Paddington Station and between 3-10 minutes to/from the nearest bus stops. While the immediate vicinity of Paddington Station is very busy and crowded, the street where the hotel is located (Sussex Gardens) is quiet and peaceful. There are many restaurants lining the streets leading to Sussex...

Wife, two teens, and I stayed in the two room Family Quad Room for four nights. We found the rooms/bathroom to be extremely clean and it looked as if the rooms had been recently painted and refurbished. Beds and linens were comfortable. Housekeeping kept things tidy. The breakfast tasty and breakfast service was awesome. Finally, the location was an easy...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, the staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful and check in was very easy. The room itself was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The one main issue which unfortunately has swayed my rating from 4* to 3* was the fact the room was absolutely boiling. The air con...

We have been staying at the Darlington Hyde Park for many years, with good reason. Fabulous location within easy walking distance of Paddington Station (most importantly the Heathrow Express and tube stations), Hyde Park and central London access. Reasonably priced, pleasant staff and a great breakfast to start the day. The Monkey Puzzle, one block north, is a great choice...

It's clean and the room was reasonably spacious. The hallways, stairs, and lift were cramped but did what they're meant to do. Breakfast was okay but they need to raise their food hygiene rating. We just had yogurt and some fruit there but went out to have a proper breakfast. Even so, we would definitely stay there again without hesitation....

“The rooms aren't huge but are modern and reasonably appointed. You may have to adjust the radiator as the rooms can be hot if the staff doesn't think of it (like most hotels).,”
