Had a twin room with a friend (we had the one that you can see on the hotel homepage).

Some information:

- big enough room
- room and bathroom very clean
- very friendly and helpful staff at reception and breakfast room
- English breakfast is included, so you don't have to pay that in addition to the regular price
- brilliant location, under 5 minutes to Paddington station (that has supermarkets/chemist)
- breakfast was O.K. and satisfactory

- you have a tap for hot water and one for cold water on shower and washbasin, it's a bit
complicated to find the right temperature when you have a shower
- clairaudient (from outside and inside) we could hear traffic outside and the guests who had the room above us, you should keep in mind that this is an old townhouse
- no cold meat (like ham or salami) for breakfast

I definitely would come back and will recommend this hotel.

Regards to the staff :)

Was looking for a hotel to stay over after attending a function at the Grosvenor. Came across the Darlington Hyde Park and after reading some reviews made a booking. Have to say that the experience exceeded my expectations. Great room at a great rate, good breakfast, and a perfect location. High standard of cleanliness, and the staff were friendly. Will definitely stay again when in London.

Overall experience in this hotel is good.

Upside: The location was good as it was just less than 5 mins walk from paddington station. The hotel was also a nice 10 min walk to the really popular shopping area (oxford street). Location is also ideal for muslim travellers, as it is located right next to edgware road so halal food is easy to find and aplenty. Room and bathroom were both spacious with ample of room to move about. We had 3 separate beds (our groups consisted of 3 persons). Both the room and bathroom were clean and we had no problems whatsoever. Staff were friendly and the concierge was very helpful. The free wifi is also an added bonus!

Downside: There were only 2 things - 1) Soundproofing the room. As our rooms were located in the basement and directly under the front door steps, the sounds of people walking and the doors opening/closing were quite loud, so it wasn't that great especially at night when we're trying to fall asleep. It would be good if they could soundproof the room. 2) Pillows. The beds were good and comfortable however we found the pillows to be too thin and soft so it was uncomfortable. We ended up with really sore necks and tired shoulders the next day.

Aside from those two: hotel was good. Would come back again!

Room Tip: Avoid the 3-person bedroom in the basement as it is directly under the front door and the room is no...

The room is smaller than I expected, however it is very cozy and clean. The staffs are very friendly. The location is great too - only 5 to 10 mins walk to Paddington Rail/Tube station and Hyde Park. Highly recommended!

Staying in the upstairs family room at the Darlington was delightful for my family. The rooms are simple and clean. The bathroom is well-supplied with shower gel, shampoo, soap, etc. The breakfast is outstanding, served by amazing waitresses who remembered our order from one day to the next! The people at the front desk provided assistance with everything from the Big Red Bus Tour to the in-house guest laundry facilities. This hotel is close to Paddington and to many neighborhood eating places. We recommend a nearby pub and a little Italian restaurant on London Street. We will be back!

Room Tip: HIgher floors are quiet and delightful

The location near to Paddington was why we booked here so we were very pleased to find the hotel so nice. Huge rooms by London (or European ) standards with new looking carpets and draperies plus a huge bathtub and bathroom (again not usually found in this price bracket). Even soft plush toilet paper! A window in the bathroom that can be fully opened and a safe and fridge are among the amenities that made us fall in love with the place. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is average but plentiful and with some of our favorite restaurants in London only a short distance away on Queensway - we usually have overeaten the night before anyway! The wi-fi was fine and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This is my second stay and still like this hotel , also I am now familiar with the bus route so I can easy to travel by bus as the bus stop is closed to the hotel. Meanwhile, all the staff is helpful and friendly, the breakfast is same as last year but still not a bad choice. One thing is changed -wifi, they now used the wifi system needs you to register, this is not a problem but however it will made you log in all the time as you always need to log out while a moment. so i think this change is not so good just let you annoyed by this system, although this is free wifi but I think they need to consider this problem. . overall I still recommend this hotel.
