I go to a lot of awards dinners on Park Lane (I am an award entry consultant - odd career I know). Anyway, I have spent many years staying at various budget hotels near Park Lane, but not in the same crazy price bracket. Anyway, finally I have found somewhere I would return to without hesitation. It is clean, quiet, well furnished, with OK food and very friendly staff. I look forward to returning.

Lovely staff who were very welcoming. Asked for a quiet room and got one, no issues at all. Comfy bed, super breakfast. The location is perfect, 5 minutes from Paddington & about 10-15 mins walk to Hyde Park Corner. Really nothing bad to say, give them a try. All hotels get the odd bad review but this can be for various reasons and not necessarily what the review says. Give them a try you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper quiet room, they really are quiet & lovely rooftop views.

We arrived early and booked in, the receptionist was really friendly and helpful and let us leave our bags in a locked room until our suite was ready. We couldn't believe how lovely the Suite was, opening the door into the hallway our bedroom was at the rear of the hotel and a lounge at the front with the bathroom in the middle. All three rooms were a fantastic size with loads of room, Lounge with sofa,flat screen tv, table,safe,fridge and all the tea & coffee you could drink. Bathroom had a superb shower and bath with loads of toiletries. Bedroom had a king bed,flat screen tv, dressing table and chairs. Breakfast's where great with lots to choose from. Can't say enough good things about this Hotel! Another one though, it's only 5mins walk from Paddington. Well done The Darlington & see you soon.

Room Tip: Suite 205 is Superb!!

The Darlington Hotel in Paddington, London gave us good value for money. It is conveniently located for arriving & departing if using the Heathrow Express, or for just using the Tube for getting around London. The hotel is clean with friendly reception staff. The room size was good for London at the room rate & had tea/coffee making facilities in your room.The breakfast was fresh, with a good range of cereals, breads & the usual hot choices. There are lots of good pubs & restaurants in this area & it was only a brief walk to Kensington Gardens. We stayed here at the beginning of our trip & again at the end & were very happy & comfortable.

Close to London Paddington Station (stop of the Heathrow Airport Express Train), Hyde Park and the beginning of Oxford Street (Lot of shops). Clean and spacious room (No Air Conditioning) with surprising good breakfast. The rooms can be a little noisy specially in the basement. Friendly Staff. Very quiet neighbour, but with lot of restaurants with walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms in the basement bellow the reception can be noisy (probably rooms nr. 6 and 7)

Our third stay at this Bed and Breakfast. We have always found it very friendly and clean. Location excellent, close to transport links. Breakfast lovely. Rooms more than adequate, some smaller than others but there is everything you need. Yes, it is a little noisy due to traffic if the windows are open but not too much of a problem. Excellent pubs within walking distance serving lovely food. Highly recommended
