For a long time the only option for those desiring an international standard hotel at Paddington Station has been the somewhat tired and rather overpriced Hilton. The Hotel Indigo is only a few minutes walk from the station - quite feasible even with luggage - and the rooms are of a very high standard, particularly given the price.
The room decor is modern, though the mural behind the bed is a stylized representation of the iron girders from the Victorian era Paddington Station itself. As the hotel is comprised of a series of Victorian townhouses if I had been decorating the place, I would probably have gone for something a little more reflective of the period and a little less jarringly modern, but it didn't stop me enjoying a good night's sleep.
As you'd expect in central London, especially at the relatively affordable rates that this property charges, the rooms are not large, and the bathrooms are not for the claustrophobic. As such, the hotel is fine for a one or two night stay, but I probably wouldn't stay longer.
The English breakfast in the cafe-bar on the ground floor was decent, although the coffee left a bit to be desired.
Staff were uniformly helpful and friendly.
Would definitely use this property again if I needed to be in the area.
