Set slightly away from the West End, this hotel is nevertheless in easy striking distance from all the main attractions. Situated on a pleasant and quiet street the hotel is compact but well designed. This is also reflected in the rooms which are well equipped and pleasant. Only slight grumbles were a tiny (by today's standards) TV and a slightly pricy (but good quality) breakfast.
"Nice hotel, close to the Paddington tube station. "
I stayed 7 nights in the hotel. Rooms are small but airy, natural lighting and hotel is on a quiet zone. Room has air conditioning (for summer) and heating for winter. A tea and coffee maker and free Wi-Fi. Small gestures like a bite of cookies every day in the room are a welcome addition.
Enjoyed the stay basically.......................... staff were extremely helpful ...offered advice for touring etc.
The lounge was not as available as we would have liked.........the bellmen were very helpful............even to the point of serving at the lounge. . The air conditioning in the room automatically turned down during the night.............hence hot through the early hours of he night.
i used to stay elsewhere in London as I am afraid Hilton is too close to Paddington with traffic and noise. I gave a try this time for the sake of location. when I arrived, i didn't get to check in due to system/server change. i saw queue await checking in. anyhow, they escorted us to our room but no card key avaialble till system is back. although the hotel management wasn't well-planned on server update, the staff were good in crisis management. i have to give "like" to this.
the room was comfortable and clean but a bit pricy. overall, it was a delight at my stay.
This lively residential and business area borders Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens where you can stroll along canalside streets and check out the houseboats and historic Victorian homes. Plentiful shopping opportunities exist at Queensway and Oxford Street. Paddington Station, a 19th century building, provides a gateway to towns in the west of England, including Oxford, Windsor, Bath and Bristol.
