We spent 5 nights in mid-October at the Darlington and were very pleased -- the room was larger than expected, as was the bathroom. We loved having a small fridge and the large, plush towels! The laundry room was much appreciated after having spent the 2 previous weeks on a narrow boat with no access to laundry facilities. They had even listened to the complaints about the hair dryers and supplied a brand new one in the desk drawer. The breakfast room was light and spacious, the breakfast choices were many, and the 2 young women working there were so pleasant.
The rest of the staff was also pleasant and helpful. We were leaving early on our last morning and mentioned that to the front desk staff. They kindly offered to bring up a breakfast tray for us that evening which we never expected, but certainly appreciated.
All this and only 2 block from Paddington Station and about 5 from Hyde Park.
The only drawback was the road noise, but we had ear plugs and would ask for a back room next time.
We have already recommended the Darlington to our friends. What a find!
