Always struggle to find a decent hotel in this area of London - there are certainly lots that you wouldn't hurry back to - but the Darlington Hyde Park is different. Great location - Paddington Station about 5 minutes away; Hyde Park not much further, ready access to tube and bus routes and a variety of shops and restaurants nearby....

I arrived at the hotel and sped through my check in, just signed some paper and was given direction and key. I like a speedy check in. The room was a single room and was a suitable size. It could have been a bit bigger but this is London. The room has a kettle (life without tea is dreadful) and...

Friendly helpful staff and clean accommodation in a conveniently neighborhood. The hotel is few minutes on foot from Paddington station and Edgware Road and the numerous bus, tube and train connections. The Included breakfast was really good and a great way to start each day.

I visit London every year and have finally found a hotel to return to. It feels like my home away from home. It's a five minute walk from Paddington station and within walking distance of Kensington Park, Oxford Street shopping, and the canal boats in Little Venice. There are buses and tube stops nearby, as well as restaurants. It's quiet...

This was our second stay at the Darlington Hyde Park. Rooms are comfortable and clean with plenty of towels and pillows and the handy addition of a room fridge.

Typical London three star hotel with tiny rooms (single room was max 5 square meters), cheap furniture, superficially clean but coming at high price - above 100 pound for one person. In absolute terms you would never stay in a place like this at those conditions, but in relative terms you know you are in London and compared to alternative...

This was our fourth time at the Darlington Hyde Park and we will book there again. Amazingly comfortable hotel for the price in London. Very convenient to all the sites via bus, Tube and train. The fact it has a lift is a plus. We were booked in the same room as last September and it felt like home. Rooms...

This is a converted Georgian home (in a row of Georgian homes) on a very pretty street. It is 5-10 minutes walk from Paddington Railroad Station and Tube station which is very convenient for trips throughout the city or to Heathrow (Heathrow Express) or Windsor or Oxford, even. Because it is a converted home, this hotel is quirky and charming....

I stayed here for one night in early May, as I had to get an early morning express to Heathrow.

“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).,”
