Stayed here for a long weekend. Loved the room, it was like a home from home, which included dressing gowns and slippers. The breakfast was more than adequate, it allowed you to have both continental and cooked breakfast. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The proximity to Paddington station makes it easy to get around the city too. Would recommend this room to anyone who is looking for a little gem in London.

We stayed there 4 nights January 2012 2 adult and 2 children the family room was basically 2 joint bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and that set us was perfect for us.
the rooms are not big but better than usual London standards. With this family room option we did not have to book 2 rooms and saved some money
location is ok 5 minutes walk to Paddington station 10 minutes to Oxford street
lots of restaurants and supermarkets in Edgeware road which is close by Bayswater in close as well.
Staff were friendly. Free Internet access. very good breakfast. good service.
I would say value for money

Room Tip: The family room is good enough for 4 adults

I did alot of research when looking for a hotel for our family trip (Feb 27-March 4). After reading several great reviews of the Darlington on tripadvisor, I booked the quad room for my family (myself, my husband, and our two children-ages 12 & 14). The room was great-we had a private hallway that connected two rooms (one with a queen size bed and the other with two twin beds) and an en suite bathroom. Everything I read was true...the location was excellent, the staff was very accomodating and the hotel was very clean. We were just minutes away from Paddington station, several places to eat (McDonalds, Burger King, Subway & KFC for picky eaters and more traditional places for adults) and pubs. Even though we arrived before the check in time, we were allowed to leave our luggage (7 bags total) while we started siteseeing. By the time we got back to officially check in, our bags were already in our room (most helpful!). The staff was very helpful and allowed us to borrow a power adapter for our laptop. I was even able to get plates and silverware from the kitchen (even though it was closed) for some take-away food that we brought in. The staff was ready to help us in anyway we needed. Maps were also available and were very helpful when trying to get around the city. Breakfast consisted of an assortment of cereal, fruits, yogurt, breads and even a full English breakfast. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay at the Darlington and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality hotel. In fact, I look forward to staying there again in the future.

Room Tip: the quad room is excellent for families with pre-teens or teenagers.

The Darlington Hyde Park was conveniently located close to Paddington station, close to plenty of bars and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful - we left our case in storage as we arrived early and when we went back later to book in, they had already taken our case to our room - nice touch. Room was recently decorated to a high standard, and had everything we needed in there - even complimentary water on 1st night. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and fresh. Would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Would imagine all rooms would be of good standard.

Well, having stayed at this Hotel many times since my last review, I can honestly say this establishment has got better, and better every time, we have visited. Our last visit over the frosty and bitter weekend of Feb 11/12 was once again superb. The staff are SO helpful all round, the suite we had was spotlessly clean and VERY comfortable indeed. The breakfast was excellent all round, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff on duty in the Morning. The check in was simple, and the check out was also easy and efficent too.What more can you ask from a Hotel, with reasonable prices in London, close to Paddington.We will certainly be back here next time we have another weekend in London. Highly Recommended all round IMHO ......

Room Tip: Book well in advance, and you should get an excellent price........
