4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed at the Darlington for 3 nights on business. Perhaps the biggest selling point is the location--less than a 5 minute walk to Paddington and lots of restaurants and bars nearby. The room was spacious with all the necessities. Good water pressure in the shower. The biggest downside was the July heat (I think I happened to be there... More

My daughter and I stayed here for one night, because we needed a room with easy access to Heathrow. This was a great location for Paddington station. Easy 5 minute walk with luggage. Lots of restaurants nearby. Good breakfast included in the room rate. Room was clean, quiet, roomy, and just what we needed.

I always stay at the Darlington when in London. The rooms are large, the lower level ones a little larger. There are restaurants, convenient stores, pubs all in walking distance. It is a safe area to walk at night. It is also close to Paddington station and the airport buses. The breakfast which is included in the room serves a... More

We spent four days at the Darlington in June and two more days in early July. We were motivated to try this hotel based on the high rating on TripAdvisor, and we were NOT disappointed.

We searched for quite some time for a hotel in London for our two-night stay in June and decided to go for the Darlington Hyde Park. We didn't regret this at all and would recommend it to anyone who wants a decent hotel at a convenient location and not too expensive. We booked the triple room at the basement. It... More

This hotel is ideally located, close to attractions and especially Hyde Park, as we were going to the Stevie Wonder concert. The staff were so friendly and helpful, taking our bags to our rooms, so we didn't miss any of the concert and the breakfast was a perfect start to a day of sightseeing and shopping. Marble Arch is so... More

Visited London for 5 days/4 nights and stayed at the Darlington. Loved the feel of looking out the window and seeing red double decker buses and London cabs going past. Even though we had a great view of the passing traffic, it was very quiet in the room. Felt secure as needed to use card to get into lobby/reception and... More

My wife and I stayed here for the night before getting an early train at Paddington station. Our room was very clean and very quiet. The woman on reception was very pleasant and welcoming. For London, this hotel is very good value for money. We would definitely stay here again.

Check-in/check-out was a breeze. No hidden charges. Comfortable lobby. Very comfortable beds, pillows, and beddings: best we've had in all our trips and different cities. Friendly and helpful staff. And a nice plus: a laundry area with ironing facilities. Very convenient.
