Our family of four stayed here in a quad room. We stayed in the large quad with one queen and two single beds. It was perfect. The bathroom was a little on the small side, but the room was large enough. The location of the hotel was great, easy walk to Paddington Station (5 minutes). The street itself is very nice and felt safe. There are restaurants nearby. The breakfast included was quite good, the only complaint there may be that service wasn't always super speedy so you just needed to work that into your schedule.

We would definitely stay here again. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The included breakfast was excellent - a nice hot breakfast and a variety of continental breakfast items on the breakfast bar. You can't beat the location. It's quiet yet only a 5 minutes walk to the Paddington Underground station and Paddington train station. Great value for the money.

TOXIC FUMES ABOUD! Not only was the state of this hotel one that I would not wish upon anyone, but the customer service was deplorable. There are toxic paint fumes in the rooms. So bad in fact, that I could not even sleep. I had the bathroom fan on, a room fan, and the windows open. Seeing a rat trap outside of the window made me quickly close the window though. As I was meant to stay another two nights, I asked to be put in another room. They were resistant but agreed. I asked if it TOO had been recently painted, they said that yes it had- about a month ago, the same as the room I had the first night. Not wanting to inhale more toxic fumes and go without sleep, I asked to cancel my (prepaid) booking. They only refunded one of the two nights, which they said they did not even have to do. I insisted that they refund both and they grew increasingly more inconsiderate. Stay elsewhere.

Dear Ms Delany, Thank you for taking time to post review of The Darlington Hyde Park Hotel on Trip Advisor, Google and Facebook. I am most grateful for your feedback which is a valuable source of information for us, regardless of whether it is good or bad. It helps us monitor the service we provide. I was saddened to learn that your stay with us was such a disappointment. Your first booking was for 1 night in a double room and when you arrived you were given an early check-in as the room was ready however after a few minutes in the room you approached the reception saying the room was too near the lift and asked for a change of room which we were able to arrange. However the next morning you stated that you couldn’t sleep and you felt sick from the paint smell but as you had not made any complaints till the next morning there was nothing we could have done to alleviate the situation. Your second booking was for a twin room booked under the non- refundable offer (for the 2nd & 3rd night). This room was on another floor and had been painted before January 2020 and many guests had already stayed in it without complaint of it smelling of paint. You stated that you didn’t want to stay with us for the other 2 nights without even bothering to test the twin room for any smell of paint. We were sorry to hear that and reminded you that this room was booked under the non-refundable conditions and it had been already charged and couldn’t be cancelled with no good reason. You asked if we could cancel and refund the money to you otherwise you will have to leave a bad review for the hotel. After a discussion, we agreed on a compromise to refund 1 night and reassured you that you have the right to leave a review following your stay with us whether good or bad. Once again, my sincere apologies for your disappointment after your recent stay with us and we very much hope that you could give The Darlington Hyde Park the opportunity in the future to restore your faith in the hotel and us. Kind regards, Dominika Gozdzik, Hotel Manager
