Good location, but very small rooms... even for European standards. We enjoyed the breakfast - dining room staff was very friendly. Also extremely expensive, not sure why? Maybe because it was Wimbleton week?

This is a Wonderful Hotel . I needed to come to London to renew my passport. I was a bit nervous as a woman traveling on her own. I felt very secure at the Darlington. 5 min walk from Paddington Station, 5 min walk from Edgeware Road. 10 min walk from Marbel Arch. The Hotel I found to be spotless.... More

Just spent one night here. It's just 5 minutes by foot from Paddington train station and has good access to public transport to the city center (bus line 23). Positive: + Clean rooms + Quiet + Friendly staff + Ok breakfast + Free Wifi Negative - Rooms as small as in most London hotels - Room #16 has the ventilation... More

Found the staff to be very friendly the hotel to be quiet, clean and welcoming although the bathroom needed some minor repairs. Breakfast was great. Lack of room service, and after hours support was lack luster. We called after hours looking for towels, was quickly informed that there were no extra towels. Also Accidentally I left something in the lobby.... More

The Darlington is well positioned - 5 minute walk to Paddington Station, Hyde Park, bus route, Hop On Hop Off bus. Clean, well done rooms, good breakfast and pleasant helpful staff. We had a very pleasant 3 day stay here.

Just checked in for a couple of nights. All very smooth and effecient. Great breakfast and neat smallish room. This spot is so convienent to Paddington. Wi-fi was a bit annoying to access. It appeared that the place has had a revamp lately. New batroom and fresh paint.

We stay 2 nights in this hotel with our 2 children (4 and 6 years old) in a 4 persons room. It was spacious and clean and comfortable. We enjoy our stay. People in the hotel were very kind and helpful. They keep our luggages before the check in and after the check out. The hotel is near paddigton station... More

We stayed for two nights in June and the experience is just great! Perfect location for easy access to Paddington Station and Hyde Park / Kensington Gardens. There are plentiful restaurants nearby. Get discounts on room rates when booked directly from the hotel website. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staffs are very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

The hotel is conveniently located very close to Paddington Station with easy access to Central London and many other attractions. We requested a quiet room and were allocated Room 10 at the back of the hotel on the ground floor. Problem was that our neighbour... More
