We will be arriving in London in January (family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 boys 11 and 17). This will be last leg of our Europe trip, we will coming from Cardiff and arriving at Paddington Station. We will have 4 nights in London before departing via Heathrow. We will use the Heathrow express from Paddington to get to Heathrow.
I am seeking some advice as to the best area for us to stay in. Are we better off staying within walking distance to Paddington station? I haven't stayed there before so unsure if it is a good area or not. Alternatively would we be better transferring on to another tube link and go further around to say the Kensington area? Bearing in mind that we will have 4 x suitcases etc and not sure if this will be easy enough to travel around with on the tubes. I am mindlful also that the weather might be cold and wet.
Budget wise I am looking at anything up to about £220 per night.
Recommendations on area/accommodation would be most greatly appreciated. Thank you. Sarah
