“Great price, breakfast and reasonable location!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The price was one of the cheapest I found and it included breakfast so decided to give it a shot! It takes you 3-5min to walk from the Hotel to Paddington Station which can take you to the Airport or anywhere you want in London(such as Oxford Street, straight line, no hubs needed).

The location itself is pretty good, quiet and beautiful, not in the heart of London but as state before, its pretty easy to get to the main center by using the subway, and the Oyster card is the most honest thing I have ever seen in my life!

The people from the hotel are always willing to help you out with doubts you might have and they offer you adapters in case you dont have one for London outlets!

This hotel is in a great location, a couple of blocks from direct rail service (LHR and beyond) and with easy access to five different Tube lines. You can walk to a number of attractions; Hyde Park is only three blocks away, perfect for a morning walk or run. It's comfortable, clean and quiet, even overlooking the street! We felt safe and well looked after by the excellent staff. The breakfast room is pleasant and they offer good selections, including the all important bran cereals. The made-to-order English breakfasts were tasty and hot out of the kitchen. We'll stay here again, for sure!

We were recently in London while my daughter competed in a competition being held at a major chain hotel on Praed St. We had the opportunity to book at the venue hotel, but I chose Darlington Hyde Park because I was very impressed with the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We had a twin room on the third floor that was delightful, clean, relaxing and spacious. My bed was extremely comfortable, and the linens were soft and fluffy. My pillow, which I am very picky about was perfect. The shower was plenty hot and powerful and I enjoyed having a heated towel waiting for me. The bedroom and bathroom both had windows that opened which was another plus for us. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the staff was wonderful. Nice location and walkable from Paddington station. During our stay we visited our friends who stayed at the chain hotel and we were amazed to see that their room was a third of the size as our Darlington room at nearly twice the cost. Oh, did I mention free WiFi too? Yeah, we'll be back. Thanks Darlington.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor, facing the back. Very quiet and nice.

Have stayed in several hotels around Paddington and wanted to try this one since the reviews are so good. Found it clean and nice. The rooms are bigger then average in the area and bathroom is also big. Overal a good hotel but have found hotels in the area that I think are better value since a very large room and elevator is not important to us. The wifi is very good on all floors.The breakfast was ok, but it took way to long for the english hot breakfast. Room could have needed some new paint and beds are quite hard. Would recomend for someone who needs space and a elevator.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel
Staff was very efficient and friendly
When we arrived in early morning They took our baggage and put it directly in our rom when we came back in the afternoon.
The room was very large and the bed clean.
The toilette was less convincing and need some work to reach higher standards.
The scaffolds outside the building were unexpected.
Breakfast is good but could be faster and a bit larger, ie apple juice or soya milk
We appreciated very much that at the last day they provided us with a quick simple breakfast because we had to leave the room early
Next time? Probably yes, if we find a reasonable rate

Dear RC61ITA, thank you for your stay with us and for leaving a feedback on Trip Advisor about The Darlington Hyde Park. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed the efficient and friendly staff, spacious room and you found the place clean. I was also delighted to read that you found our early breakfast and luggage storage facilities helpful. The guests can leave their bags before check in time and also after the check out (no overnight storage) and also the breakfast available before serving time is continental (yogurts, fruits, juice, cornflakes). We are always happy to prepare a tray with an early breakfast the evening before you need it, and you can have it in the morning whatever time you wish. I do sincerely hope that we will see you again and have the opportunity to show you how great The Darlington Hyde Park truly is. Kindest regards, Dominika Gozdzik, Hotel Manager

The hotel overall was lovely. A little worried initially when I saw the scaffolding on the outside!. But all concerns alleviated once you got inside. Staff very pleasant and happy to help with any queries. We were on the 2nd floor which was quiet and room was spacious for a london hotel. All space used to nth degree. Quirky but good use of space for bathroom which was up a few steps. Don't know how suitable it would be to everyone for accessibility. Beautiful hot shower!!! Sold!. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Only gripe I would have as with all london hotels is the expense which is a bit on the high side. I have travelled and stayed in a few hotels. London I would have to say in my experience would have to be the most expensive.

Dear Lisa-s 108, I really appreciate you taking the time to review The Darlington Hyde Park Hotel on Trip Advisor. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us including the service provided by the team, breakfast and spacious and quiet room. The work outside being done was only painting, there was no construction work involved and it has been carried out by our own maintenance team only between 10 am and 3 pm. I hope you will come again and have an opportunity to see our lovely renovated facade. We look forward to see you again! Contact us directly for the best rates available.
