    Hilton Paddington


    The Hilton Paddington is in an excellent location and is connected by a footbridge to Paddington train station which is one of the most famous train stations in London. It is also conviniently situated close to other attractions like Buckingham palace.

    The hotel staff were very friendly and check in was completed very quickly and efficiently. The rooms were very clean and very quiet. They had the usual ammeneties like phones, tv, alarms and desk and chairs which are handy if you are in the hotel on business.

    The breakfast buffet was also very tasty with a variety to choose from.

    Unique Quality: Excellent location near the Paddington station

    Convenience and comfort combined.


    The Hilton Paddington was recommended to me by a colleague once and since then I haven't stayed anywhere else in London.

    It's cozy with comfortable rooms and the service is fine. It's a 20 minute walk to Marble Arch and Oxford street which is pleasant during the mornings.

    The biggest sell is the proximity to the airport express to Heathrow which is a lot better than trying to get a cab.

    Plus, the lobby has a Paddington Bear shop which comes in handy for last minute children's gifts.

    Unique Quality: Paddington Bear. Marmalade.

    Right at the Paddington station


    Have stayed here several times and had several different type of room. Some are nicer than others. The pictures shown here are probably from the smallest one with the worst view. However, all rooms are clean, standard large city Hilton rooms. The hotel itself is not spectacular, neither are the rooms. But the popularity is because of the location. Right at the Paddington station. You basically walk from your room and lobby straight to the Heathrow express and step into the 15 minutes Heathrow Express train to Heathrow. Considering the fact that iti s not always easy to get a cab in downtown London, this hotel is a very good option (in case you dont want to stay at an airport hotel overnight).

    The lobby is somewhat disturbing as it seems people not being in the hotel use this as well to pass from the street to the train station.

    Breakfast and dinner are ok, nothing spectacular.

    A Taste of Luxury


    What a lovely hotel...My mom got us a free stay at this $400 a night hotel, which was greatly appreciated. The concierge was nice and the hotel was thouroughly clean. The beds were also immensely comfortable, compared to the usual hostels we were staying at. There is also a charming yet expensive bar on the main floor. The only problem we had was the certificates guaranteeing us a free stay had problems when transfering and we were stuck at the hotel for hours before being aloud to check in. However the location is amazing being right across the street from Paddington station. IT was an amazing stay concidering it was for free but i dont think i would ever spend $400 of my own money for a night in this hotel.

    Directions: Right across the street from Paddington Station

    This hotel has an ideal location. Its located just above Paddington station. With some airlines it is possible to check in at the rail way station. The underground station is nearby. Three underground lines pass here, circle, district and bakerloo lines. If you travel with the Eurostar, Waterloo station is only a few stops away. Its an ideal location to discover London.

    Unique Quality: Its a four star deluxe hotel in Art Deco style. Lots of facilities are available, fitness, steam bar, Brasserie Restaurant, a concierge travel desk with online airline and rail information. The hotel offers 355 rooms that use the latest technology.

    Directions: Paddington station

    London Luxury Lodging


    'London's best connected hotel' is situated right above Paddington Station. Major airline check-in desks are situated in the station, adjacent to the hotel entrance.

    I stayed there during my business trip. A wonderful experience and convenient location.

    But it was costly. 140 pounds per night.

    Unique Quality: If you are staying for more than one week, remember to settle your bills weekly. They did not notify me and locked me out of the room.

    Easy from Heathrow Express to check-in


    If you can not wait to have some privacy after your plane touches down at Heathrow but you want to get into London before you shower, unpack, and maybe sneak in a quick nap then this is the place for you. Staying here the first two or three nights then switching to another part of London is a good approach for me. There are plenty of quick eats and places to pick up supplies in the station. It is also a good base if you have day trips to make on trains that leave from Paddington (such as Oxford or Winchester).

    Unique Quality: new art deco styling through out with the Hilton take-over

    the mini bar is an automatic you touch it -- they bill it, so beware



    Located on top of Paddington station (formerly the Great Western Royal hotel). Underwent total renovation in last two years. Lobby grand, marble and wood pannelling. . Good (pricey) breakfast . Room (Executive deluxe) on level 6 large for London standards with marble bathroom, cable tv and safe. Small windows looking onto internal courtyard but open slightly for fresh air. Executive lounge served continental breakfast (or you could have full breakfast in restaurant), snacks for lunch and dinner. Afternoon tea in the club lounge was cakes, cheese board, scones, clotted cream, jam. Open bar until 9pm with help yourself Whisky, Gin, Baileys, Champagne, soft drinks ,coffee machine (access via your coded card). You can get great prices by booking at least 21 days ahead on the hilton or other websites). One bugbear about minibar - automatically charges when items removed but it also appears to charge if you just touch an item (while still in the minibar) to look at them - as I wanted to store other items in there (why are theses places never cold enough) they wanted to charge me GBP2.80 for the privilige (as they consider it a service). After arguing this was waived ( I pointed out if I need an extra toilet roll was I going to get charged for that). They did offer use of the hotel fridge but for a 5* hotel this was inconvenient (I dont want to ring downstairs ever time I want to access there fridge). Walk out back of lobby into Paddington mainline station (airline checkin desks - get boarding pass and dont see luggage until destination) with the Heathrow Express - 15 minutes to airport (GBP13 for single one way) plus tube stations. Local restaurants just outside hotel incl Garfunkels, Angus Steak House, KFC plus a mini supermarket (Sainsburys) inside the station open late (and other bars/ coffee shops) . Not the wealthest area (a bit run down) but never felt unsafe and always busy because of the station. . I obtained a advance purchase rate of GBP158 per night for the room including executive club access.

    Directions: Paddington Station.

    Budget high life


    It's a spectacularly grand 4 star (delux) hotel, with marble floored reception... in the rooms (huge) there is a (big) TV, playstation, a HUGE and comfy bed, and... 3 telephones. Yes, 3 telephones - one next to the bed, one on the table and another one in the toilet!

    (*it's funny/weird how people judge the level of luxeoury by the number of telephones in the room)

    The service was first class! Well... what did I expect, it's Hilton!

    The best thing has to be the breakfast... umm...! It was YUMMY!!! A buffet breakfast that we could eat as much as we like - enough to cover the lunch! Great!!!

    We managed to stay here for £15 per person per night, was because a friend who was with us was working for Hilton as well. The discount was very generous!

    Unique Quality: Those telephone, obviously!

    And the breakfast!!!

    Directions: Right next door to the Paddington Station, and about 10 minutes walk from the Hyde Park.

The Hilton Paddington as you can figure out already from its name is just by the Paddington station which is making it very continence if you travel by trains from the Heathrow airport.

loved this hotel

by TripAdvisor Member sassycake

we stayed one night at the hilton paddington in a junior suite for 239 english pounds, which isn't bad considering the prices in london and were very impressed. the room was immaculate with skylights and a huge balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the lights at night. the food and service were also excellent. we would definately stay there again.

Great for a Short Stay

by TripAdvisor Member skeezixtoronto

We stayed at the Hilton Paddington for one night only, during a brief stopover in London on our way to Edinburgh.

The location of this hotel for brief visits to London cannot be beat. I know it has been said many times already, but I cannot stress enough how wonderful it is to disembark off the Heathrow Express and simply walk upstairs to the Hilton Paddington. And, of course, the hotel is also located at a major Underground station, making one's explorations of London quite easy.

The rooms are nice (at least our basic room was). Standard hotel decor, but with a real stylish touch -- not super trendy, but the rooms avoid the cliches of hotel decor (flowered bedspreads, ugly prints on the wall, etc.). The bathroom was large, clean, and well equipped.

Staff were not of the warm and fuzzy type. I know that some previous reviewers have described the staff as cold and unhelpful -- I would not say that. But I would call the service perfunctory -- very professional, but not warm or friendly. Which is okay for a short stay where one wants efficient service above all else. Happily, we were able to check into our room before 9 am, straight off our red-eye flight from North America.

The only real drawback -- everything is very pricey. The room service, the laundry service, breakfast -- even for U.K. prices, these were hefty.

Overall, I would recommend the Hilton Paddington for short stays in London, when quick access to the Heathrow Express is a plus, and when one does not anticipate using any of the hotels overpriced services or restaurants.

By the way, the various airline check-in desks formerly located in Paddington Station appear to have been closed for good in early December 2004. So one can no longer check in one's luggage before getting on the Heathrow Express on the way to the airport. Not a big deal, but Hilton does not appear to have updated its website to reflect this new fact.

Where to stay - Paddington Hilton or Conrad?

by jasonbur

I am going to be using points to stay for free and wondering which is better, the Paddington or Conrad areas?

Conrad is 40k, Paddington is 35k.


Re: Where to stay - Paddington Hilton or Conrad?

by leffe3

Pros and cons for both.

I've stayed at the Hilton and its everything you'd expect - comfy, very large rooms, all mod cons etc. But public space completely annodine and 'clinical'. Its great for public transport as its part of the Railway Station/underground and great connection to Heathrow. Immediate surrounding area leaves a lot to be desired re cafes, restaurants, bars etc. though.

Conrad is overlooking Thames and is much trendier than Hilton - contemporary rather than classical. Surrounded by cafes and bars etc - great location. But a bummer to get to other than taxi.

So depends on what you want. Personally? I'd go for Conrad.
