We stayed two nights at the Darlington Hyde Park and enjoyed it very much. It is a short walk from Paddington Station where there is easy access to the Heathrow Express and the tube. The hotel is located in an attractive street in an older building and is a little bit of a rabbit warren. The hotel is nicely furnished...

I have stayed at the Darlington several times and it would always be my first choice for a comfortable and convenient place to stay when visiting London. Walking distance from Paddington and close to many bus routes. Ths staff are always friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

One of the many hotels in Sussex Gardens, a short walk away from Paddington station. The location is great and there's plenty of public transport around. You're obviously also nearby Hyde Park. I wouldn't call the Paddington area really fancy though. It's not like SOHO, Covent Garden or the likes. Rooms (double) are decently sized. The bathroom is a bit...
