We had a very pleasant stay and everything was perfect except from the construction work that didn't allow us to rest between the different activities. The noise was terrible - During the late morning and the afternoon.

The position was great! From the proximity to tube stations, time to get to popular attractions to being able to run around Kensington gardens/Hyde park every morning was great. Ease of booking and check in/out was so seamless & painless. The room felt more like a very cool & comfy apartment than a hotel room.

I love the Darlington. I just returned from my sixth visit and the hotel continues to offer a comfortable and secure experience. As others have noted, the breakfast is generous and tasty. The staff, especially those in the breakfast room, are always cordial and helpful. As far as I'm concerned, when I visit London the Darlington is the place I... More

The staff is very helpful, the breakfast is superb (full English with tasty sausage, bacon, eggs plus pastries, fruit that was always unblemished and perfect, yogurt, cereal, juice, etc.). The rooms are spacious with large bathtubs plus the only place in Europe that gives you a face washcloth! Slippers, robes, good wi-fi, in-room safe and a fridge stocked with complimentary... More

Wonderful hotel with everything close by. We could walk to the centre of London and catch the train just a couple of blocks away. The service was great and we loved the breakfasts. Paddington station is very close as is Hyde park. There are many restaurants around the corner.

Staff is helpful and the location is good as it is only 5 minutes walk from Paddington station. The security is good. Near the house, there are so many similiar guesthouse/hotel nearby, so it is quiet.

This is a well run hotel. Our room was surprisingly large and recently redecorated with a good bathroom and excellent shower. Staff are friendly and helpful. Free wifi and good breakfast included. Very convenient for Paddington station and underground. Booked direct with the hotel for a very reasonable rate. You can pay a lot more for much less in many... More

Sussex Gardens is lined with hotels (and practically nothing but hotels) and it's easy to see why: it's close enough to Paddington's Heathrow Express to easily roll your luggage, yet close enough to Hyde Park to escape the station-zone grunge. None of the dozens of other hotels on the street looked more appealing than the Darlington, in fact, they all... More

Very accessible from Padding Station, so it's especially good for just Heathrow coming-in people. Walking distance in 5-10 mins. Wifi ok and free (english) breakfast. All ok except the thing it lacks air conditioner. Considering weather, it didn't matter for my case. Good value for traveling in central London.
