Hotels in Paddington are ideal for anyone needing a quick getaway to Heathrow airport or south-west England, but the area is also handily placed for central London.
Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens (which features the excellent Princess Diana Memorial Playground) are a short walk away. Portobello Market and the shopping and eating delights of Notting Hill are only a few minutes further west. Edgware Road offers a huge choice of Middle Eastern cafés and restaurants; around Paddington Basin, Pearl Liang is a good bet for Chinese food (including dim sum) in plush modern surroundings, while Beany Green is an appealing Australian-inspired café serving fine coffee. But where to stay? We reckon these are some of the best hotels in Paddington.

The best hotels in Paddington
This is the place to stay if you want to walk straight onto a train, as it’s right next to Paddington station. The building may be nineteenth-century, but the rooms are modern, with a dash of Art Deco styling alongside the TVs and other mod cons; 56 new rooms were added in 2015. There’s a fitness centre, a bar and a brasserie, plus plenty of family rooms. Pets are welcome too, for a £35 supplement.
