Hilton Paddington

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 4, 2012

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.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

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

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 20, 2009

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.

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

Paddington

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 4, 2004

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.

'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

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 1, 2003

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

CONVENIENT LOCATION AND GREAT ROOMS

by written on May 25, 2003

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

by written on April 2, 2003

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.
