“Wonderful hotel, great location”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Just spent a weekend in this hotel with two friends. Had a wonderful stay in the triple room with 3 single beds. Large spacious room, very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble to them. The included breakfast was superb, Both continental and full English available. Plenty of good restaurants in the area within 5 minute walk. Paddington station less than 10 minute walk and good bus services available in the area within 5-10 mins of hotel. It is the second time we have stayed at the hotel and will certainly be looking to return for our next weekend in London.

Room Tip: Only slight issue we found in the triple was we were located below reception and the entrance so the...

Dear IpswichTractorgirl, Thank you for taking time to review The Darlington Hyde Park Hotel on Trip Advisor. I greatly appreciate the feedback from your stay. Paddington is fast becoming the popular destination for tourists when staying in London. With excellent communication from Paddington Station and the large number of good cafes, restaurants and pubs in the area, it is fast becoming a choice place to stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in The Darlington Hyde Park on your next visit. Best regards, Dominika Gozdzik, Hotel Manager

A three star hotel including breakfast. Large room (by English standard) that are in well conditions.
Close to Hyde Park, if you want to ride there are two stables 2-5 min from the hotel. 10 min walk from Oxford Street.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at the Darlington Hyde Park. The location is perfect, just a few short blocks from Paddington Station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was actually larger than I expected. I was travelling with a girlfriend so we had a twin room. It was clean as a whistle and good strong shower in the morning. Breakfast was wonderful, with full English breakfast or continental available and included in the price. My only complaint was that the room was rather warm, even with the heat turned down, but we were able to open some windows and easily solve that problem.

Would definitely recommend and if I am fortunate enough to return to England would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you only need twin beds...room 10 was in a great location...no elevator needed and straight down...

I stayed here for 2 nights in January with my daughter and mother. We had room 17, the quad room on the ground floor. The room had two single beds and one double and was so spacious it easily had room for the sofa and two armchairs for relaxing in. The bathroom, which had a bath with handles and a very powerful shower, was also very spacious and had many lovely complimentary toiletries. There was a free safe to use and a mini fridge which also contained complimentary bottled water on arrival. My mother had to ask reception for an extra blanket one night which wasn't a problem, although no one else needed one. There is a lift to all floors which was very useful for us. There is a small laundry on the ground floor for guest use.
The breakfast was included in the price. There was a standard English Breakfast as well as danish's, cereals, yoghurt and fruit. We did ask for poached egg but they could not do this which was shame.
The hotel is only 5 mins walk from Paddington (or £3 in a taxi which we had to do one night for my elderly mother). We also only paid £20 for a taxi one evening from the Lyceum Theatre. We also found the bus routes near Paddington got us to the shops where we wanted to go and also on the Tour of London so very convenient.
Reception was more than happy to look after our bags for the day after check out.
All in all great value for money and great location - would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Quad room 17 very spacious and very quiet

Good location in a quiet street few minutes walk from Paddington. This description goes for a string of hotels facing Sussex Gardens or neighboring streets. But Darlington Hyde Park is way above average, even though my single room was rather small. My friends had a superb twin room on the top floor with more space.
Everything was clean and tidy, and you really felt welcome when you entered the reception. The breakfast was a mix of continental buffet and English breakfast to order - all in all a nice start of the day.
Not the cheapest hotel I have stayed at, but the first one I am sure I'd like to return to. Definitely very good value for the money.
