While it’s technically closer to Bayswater than Paddington, La Suite West makes the list for being an urban oasis in the heart of London. The Japanese-style black-timber screens lend a serene atmosphere and welcome respite from the miasma of London. From the white-and-black marble to the low-lying tables and seating, there’s a real attention to detail throughout. Best of all, the larger rooms open onto private terraces overlooking the pretty Victorian street below.

Mercure London Hyde Park Hotel

This converted Victorian town house oozes modern sophistication. Each of Mercure London Hyde Park’s 78 rooms features high ceilings and gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows. For the best view, choose a room facing Talbot Square – a cute residential park set on a quiet street. Conveniently located minutes from Paddington Station and Hyde Park, the hotel comes fully equipped with a fitness centre, bar and classic British fare at the London Street Brasserie.

    Given that Hotel Indigo Paddington is part of a chain, you’d be forgiven for thinking a stay here would be a cookie-cutter experience. Not so, however, as each hotel draws on the history and atmosphere of its surroundings. In this case, the Paddington residence puts an emphasis on outdoor social spaces and a chic, modern interior that belies its affordable room rates. Perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway.


    The Pilgrm

    The Pilgrm has painstakingly restored neighbouring Victorian town houses to their former glory using materials reclaimed from schools, hospitals and military facilities. The hotel pays homage to British craftsmanship in a haven of no-fuss utilitarian luxury, with self-serve pantries and a community café serving a selection of CRU Kafe coffees, teas and legendary Crosstown doughnuts. The elegantly designed first-floor drawing room is a warm, cosy space to hang out with friends.
