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 hotel is only 5 minutes walk from Paddington rail and tube stations, so I managed to get breakfast at 7, check-out at 7:15 and caught the 7:25 train to Heathrow, arriving in terminal 5 at 7:45. I had only...

The hotel is an easy walk from Paddington. The staff, both front desk and breakfast room, are outstanding. The breakfast is excellent. As a solo traveler, the single room was small, but all I do is sleep and shower when traveling so it was perfect.

Nice small hotel five minutes walk from Paddington station, which is handy, if you take the Heathrow Express from the airport, as we did. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are small, but clean. Good breakfast with cooked-to-order eggs. There is not much to see or do in the immediate vicinity, but the Underground system will quickly and easily...

There are a tremendous amount of choices in London and to figure out where to stay can be a little daunting. When we travel, we try to stay at reasonably priced hotels relative to large tourist cities. We found the Darlington to be a great fit, the rooms are tight, but quaint, very clean and the location is great. 5...

Sussex Gardens is full of hotels built into old town houses. The Darlington Hyde Park is one of those hotels and it is a good choice if you are looking for somewhere close to Paddington.
