I have stayed in many London Hotels and I must say this one does it well. The room was clean, well laid out but uncomfortably small. The bed was uncomfortable and the bathroom though of a reasonable size had the tiniest shower I have ever been in. The reception staff were very friendly. The breakfast was average London breakfast, totally...

On our last trip to London, my husband and I ended up having to stay in two hotels - the Darlington Hyde Park, and Hotel Indigo around the corner. The Darlington won, hands down. Yes, Hotel Indigo is a little fancier, but the rooms at the Darlington were substantially larger and just as clean and comfortable. The price was much...

This hotel is just a little over 5 mins walk from Paddington Station (both the railway and underground) so it is situated in a very convenient location, yet away from the heavy traffic so it is rather peaceful and quiet. It somehow felt cosy and warm inside with its simple layout and decor - much like home. The location was...
