Stayed for one night in double room, the room was just right for our needs and the ensuite was a decent size compared to some of Londons hotels. Clean hotel and the service was excellent, breakfast was worth getting up for :-) Short walk to Paddington Station. Would definitely stay there again.

Very clean hotel in London, great location, near paddington underground and overground station, good price, hot breakfast cooked to order, staff very very nice, could not recommend it more for the price.

I have stayed here several times when it was a great deal: good room/good price for London's standards. Close to Paddington staion, restaurants and shops, Hyde Park and tube. Breakfast not included but you can make tea and coffee in the room. However, I started looking for other places when prices started going up...

Dear CristinaLM, thank you for your visit and for posting the review on Trip Advisor site. I was less than unhappy to read your comment about the breakfast as it has always been included in the price. There must be some misunderstanding. If you would like to discuss it with me further please e-mail me at dominika@darlingtonhotel.co.uk. We look forward to be welcoming you in our hotel in the future and we wish you all the best in New Year 2014! Kind regards, Dominika Gozdzik, Hotel Manager

Hotel located in Paddington, nearby Hyde Park. A 20 minutes walk to oxford. Nearby the Paddington train Station, with the night life that you can expect from a Station. Hotel is the last of a long row of hotels and hostels. As of December 2013, construction work around the hotel, thus after 8 am, no sleep. Lobby has nothing special, clean but really not fancy. Had a double room, typical british room: triple layer carpet (hygiene?), low ceiling, double windows but do not stop the noise of the busy street, plastic carpet in the bathroom. Clean, rather a big room for London. Wifi issues. Breakfast is very average, and doesn't give a nice clean feeling. Service also average.

Amazed at the quality of this hotel at such a reasonable price in an amazing location in London.
Room spotless, slight critism there was a hole in seam of the duvet. The bathroom was great with a really good power shower. Excellent service and quality of food for breakfast, but the room was small and other guests had to wait for tables to be free. Free wifi did not work but personally this did not bother us and they do state there is no guarantee it will work.

The Darlington is situated a few minutes walk from Hyde Park, tube and main line stations.

We received a warm and efficient welcome at reception and quickly found our room. Double bed, plenty of storage space, safe (no charge) fridge with a couple of bottles of water (complimentary) and bathroom with a decent size shower. Free wifi worked okay (although I had to log on each time I wanted to use it). Small kettle in the room with tea and coffee. These are facilities that all hotels ought to provide free but many don't so well done The Darlington.

Breakfast was served downstairs. Cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast and cooked breakfast plus juices, coffee and teas (including flavoured teas e.g. mint). Service again was polite friendly and efficient.

Recommended.

We stayed at the Darlington for two nights before a three week long cruise. The staff was absolutely outstanding. The family room was very spacious with beautiful views of the street and extremely clean. Early morning full breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The location is perfect and the price very reasonable. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you!
