Profile: Paddington

The friendly Paddington station welcomes visitors traveling to the city from London’s Airport via the Heathrow Express train. Just outside the bustle of the city center, this is a great location for families to find accommodations and entertainment.

Drop off your bags and begin exploring Paddington’s picturesque parks or enjoy a serene ride down Regent’s Canal. Great sightseeing of historic landmarks begins right around the corner at Kensington Palace and Regent’s Park.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    My 7 day stay at Dolphin Hotel was good. The only 2 issues I had was with the room. It was quite dusty in certain areas and the room had no city view which is why I paid more for. Other than that, the food was good, but make sure you pay on the website otherwise you won't get the full English breakfast and the staff were friendly and excellent.

    Despite booking a specific room at Hotel Dolphin (for 8 nights), I found out on site that Hotel Dolphin only accommodates guests on weekends and will be staying at Hotel Shakespeare.

    I had paid extra for an English breakfast. The staffs English was so poor they didn't understand this. Instead I was given a continental. Ten minutes later two other guests comes down and they are given it. I then complained about it and received it.

    When is a dolphin not a dolphin

    Was put in the "sister" hotel, the Shakespeare as the Dolphin looked closed. Had booked a superior room with a larger double bed. What I got was a room with a double and single bed. Struggled to climb the steep stairs and negotiate the worn carpet as there were no available lifts. Breakfast was also an ordeal as the staff didn't seem to understand the most basic of English. The choice of food was limited and not the best.

  • 6.0.Good

    The roof of my room started leaking overnight so I had to change room at 0430, not ideal! Receptionist was very apologetic but not a great situation. Good location, super close to Paddington. Breakfast basic but perfectly adequate.

    Great stay

    Great location and friendly staff. Room and bathroom very clean. The included in rate continental breakfast is very good and the cooked breakfast at an additional £3 is an absolute bargain.
