“Best hotel in London”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

We loved this hotel and would recomend it to anyone traveling to London on Business or pleasure. The staff were excellent. Mostly young girls from Eastern Europe. They were friendly and kind and could not do enough for you. Hotel manager (an Englishman) was also very friendly and helpful. The full English breakfast was great and included in the price of the room. Rooms were very clean and not as small as other European hotels I've stayed in. The coin operated laundry facility was also an added bonus. We were able to wash and dry all our clothes for our trip to Paris the following week. Location was also perfect. Two blocks from Paddington Station and the Circle Line Underground Subway which takes you almost anywhere you need to go in London. Restaurants in the area were also good. The best was the Victoria Pub which was right around the corner. Excellent food. The ones up by Paddington, (the Greek restaurant and the Sawyer Arms) were not as good. There s also a supermarket close by and a fridge in the room to store items in. All in all I would recommend the Darlington Hotel to everyone going to London on a modest budget.

Visiting London at least once each year for the last 10 years, been staying in different kind of hotels all over town, must say the Darlington Hyde Park is the best ROI for me when in London!
Great location, just 10 min from Paddington or Lancaster tube, nice, quite and clean accomodation and with great breakfast downstears.
Darlington is my choice when in London from now on!

We had a very nice experience at this hotel. A very pretty room and an unexpected and very welcome bathtub! The bed was a little small, a full queen would have been nice, but we were still very comfortable and slept well after log days sightseeing. It was also good to get a hot full breakfast each day as part of the room rate. But the best part was the location! We were very close to paddington station, and several bus lines making transportation around the city a breeze. We were also very close to Hyde Park which was lovely to walk through. Staying here made our trip home so much less stressful, it was great to pack up and walk just five minutes to the Heathrow Express to head home. Thanks for being a great place to rest on our busy wonderful trip!

My wife, daughter and I have just returned from a 3 night stay in this hotel. Everything about this hotel was first class, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The staff were friendly helpful and very professional. We were accommodated in a family room that had 2 separate rooms (one double and 1 single). That meant our daughter had her own bedroom and we could all get a good night sleep. The breakfast was first class and always served with a cheery smile from the dining room staff. We did however have a minor issue with the room and the maintenance man was at the room before my wife had returned from reception. The local is perfect for travelling around London with Paddington station only 5 minutes walk away. If your room faces out from the front of the hotel you will experience noise at night but then what do you expect it is London. I would definitely stay here again.

Reviewed 23 April 2012

We have stayed at this hotel on scores of occasions over 5 or so years. The location is ideal, rooms super clean and well appointed, staff are particularly great. Only gripes is that, despite proximity to Paddington station and consequent attraction to international travellers, the rooms are never ready before 2pm - not their fault, but for Aussies arriving in the morning after 24hrs on a plane it would be fab if some rooms could be prioritised ahead of others for turnaround (particularly given the number of Aussie travellers that frequent this hotel). Nonetheless, a fantastic hotel, we'll be back again and again.
