Hilton London Paddington
Ranked #406 of 1,081 Hotels in London
Reviewed April 16, 2007

Stayed April 13-16, 2007. Room was quite large for London standards, bathroom very nice, Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries.

Staff was helpful, except with checkout, when I had to call twice to get a bill, and then the porter, carrying the small paper bill, arrived at our room 3 hours after promised, literally as we were putting our suitcases in the hall to leave at 5 AM.

Additonally the hotel didn't make it clear that the easy access to Paddington station is closed before 6AM, which means you can't get to the first Heathrow Express train from inside the hotel...which is why we chose the hotel in first place.

Stayed: April 2007

Fantastic location, so convenient to Heathrow Express. Hotel quiet, clean, fantastic restaurant - exceptionally high quality of food and a wonderful new executive lounge with a brilliant breakfast. Staff were wonderful and so helpful. I'm a Hilton Diamond Hhonors member and this is truly one of the best hilton;s on their network. Highly recommend

We stayed in the Paddington March 21 -24, 2007. We had 2 rooms which we had 2 free nights. Both our rooms were very large and extremely clean. The entire place was extremely clean. All the attendents that we came across seemed to go out of their way to be helpful.
The location is so centrally located that it makes life easy. The Heathrow Express is in the hotel itself as is the underground entrance.
Very pleasant place, we were overly pleased.

We stayed here for two nights in march 2007. The location in pretty central connecting to major tube station and to heathrow express. There is even a direct exit inside hotel that connects to the heathrow express. The rooms are clean and reasonably spacious for european standards. Our rates included dinner buffet, which was not great but would suffice. The breakfast was good and staff was very friendly. All in all, dont expect too much and you wont be disappointed.

Advantage: Connectivity to tube/train and bus, Friendly Staff
Disadvantage: Old carpet, moderate dinner buffet. unimpressive view.

I have returned from 5 nights at the Hilton London Paddington for a series of meetings. I paid our corporate rate of £169 +VAT.

The hotel itself is very nice, and the location in Paddington Station couldn't be better if you're heading out on the train. The tube connections are pretty good too.

My room was a fairly standard one, but had a 6ft bed, which had feather everything and was most comfortable.

My problem with the hotel is the prices it charges - I can't think of a single rate for anything, from the room, through breakfast, internet access or minibar which didn't make me wince. I would expect it to be perfect for the prices it charges, but I was annoyed by the extremely poor quality of the wireless internet - it kept losing the connection and the speed, when it was connected, was not compatible with the term "high speed".

Secondly, the shower in the bathroom is only average in terms of water pressure. Also, it suffers from quite regular changes in temperature, which I presume is down to others using water in their bathrooms.

So overall, a fine hotel, but my word, the charges make you well aware of this!

Another lovely stay. The hotel is modern, clean and very pleasant. Different rates are available and I have found when getting a better rate I received a smaller room. However, all the rooms are fitted to the same standard of decor.

The hotel is excellently located for travel around London. And I wouldn't choose to saty anywhere else when travelling in and out of Heathrow airport. For around $60 you can travel quickly and easily to and from the airport on the Heathrow Express.

Try and get a rate with breakfast included otherwise it costs around $40/person to add it. It's a lovely breakfast but not for $40.

The hotel is popular for weddings, but besides seeing well dressed guests sweeping through, you would hardly notice they were there.

The bar is usually priced for a hotel bar and service is swift and efficient. I arrived before my room was ready and they were quite happy to let me charge drinks to my room while I waited.

The concierge is extremely helpful and courteous and went out of his way on every one of my stays.

This hotel, was real nice. The location is superb, very easy to find and the tubes run to it til nearly midnight. The rooms are a reasonable size and have very good bathrooms. The thing that most suprised me about the room was that it was extremely quiet, which is rare for a london hotel.
