We were accommodated in a family room located on the lower ground floor. Despite the lower floor, the room is not muggy at all. The room is a bit small for accommodating 3 ppl and 3 large luggages. The front desk staff is friendly and informative. We are also quite satisfied with the Wi-Fi connection, although the registration process in which personal information was required is slightly annoying. We are also happy with the breakfast they provided.

Overnight stay which could not be faulted apart from a refusal of Scottish notes for payment..... Single room small but adequate, en suite good with high levels of cleanliness. Staff were friendly and welcoming and breakfast offered a choice of continental or cooked although unable to offer poached eggs. Step inside door caught me out when door was opened from within however reception staff tell guests to be careful over buzzer. Would definitely stay here again.

The smell of our room is terrible and the ac is weak. It feels dirty and it is not as it seems in the photos. Trust me, not worth your hard earned money or even the two minute time it takes the book. Just poor overall.

We stayed five nights in a family room for 3 people. Not fancy however room size was decent by London standards. Bathroom freshly painted and very clean. Lovely quiet room. Staff were excellent throughout our stay from the front desk through to the breakfast room. Excellent breakfast which included hot food as well. We usually stay elsewhere however shall return to this hotel instead. Even the location proved excellent for access to Westend stores and Lancaster Gate tube. Faultless experience. Highly recommend. Book this hotel. I am recommending it to friends.

We had a pleasant stay at The Darlington Hyde Park. Room and bathroom were clean and spacious. Breakfast was included and served by a very polite waiter, which was nice. We appreciated free wifi even though had some times difficulties to stay online. Hotel has modest outlook but it did not bother us. Location near Paddington station (with Heathrow Express connection) is good. Really nice staff!

It was my fourth year in a row,that I stayed for 7 nights in this lovely hotel.
The room was ,although simple and small ,pleasant and had everything I needed.
Every day ,it was very well cleaned by the roommate.
Full breakfast and free WIFI is included in the roommate.
The connection via WIFI gave problems from time to time.
The staff is very kind and helpful in every way.
To compare this hotel with other comparable hotels in London(hotels are quite expensive) ,I do think it s very good value for your money.
Overall a perfect stay and I will definitely come back for an fifth time.

After reading the reviews about this hotel. The disappointment was once arrived. Not about the staff. They were very nice. But the quality of the hotel wasn't that good. Everything was clean but it is an outdated place. As a frequent traveller around the global staying at multiple hotels in any range. This hotel is not place to return when I am in London.
