Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Libralori Lovely little place!
When we arrived in our taxi to the hotel, we were greeted outside by one of the staff who promptly helped us with our baggage. Very nice, sweet and helpful staff. We loved the look of the hotel....very colorful and modern. Our room was a nice size and very comfortable. We loved the neighborhood and the restaurants located nearby.
We will recommend this hotel to our friends and would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Capri15 Great boutique hotel
We were pleasantly surprised with this gem of a hotel, so close to Paddington station and with a great variety of restaurants etc close by. We would definitely stay here again when we next visit London.
Loved the decor of the room and the king bed was just wonderful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Capri15 Hidden gem ....
This hotel is a hidden gem and we will definitely stay there again when next in London. Staff are friendly and very helpful, the room is spacious with a king size bed, great walk- in shower. The hotel is located only metres from the Paddington station and London street has a number of good pubs and restaurants. This hotel was the last one on our holidays in Europe and by far the best. Thank you to all concerned. John and Carol, Australia.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lcrgirl1 Comfortable, stylish, very clean, helpful and pleasant staff
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hotel Indigo, (3 nights in July). The room was comfortable, (cool in the hottest summer we've had for years!), quiet and nicely arranged. The hotel is well located with some nice eateries close by. (Try the Greek and the brasserie by the hotel itself). Hyde Park is close by. Also good pubs. Will definitely use again for a trip to London.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CVTV Good location
We enjoyed staying at this hotel. Had never thought of staying in Paddington area before and tried this hotel as a last minute choice. Would definitely stay here again. You are only a train or tube ride from anywhere. Paddington station is about a block away. The staff were helpful in finding out where a show we wanted to see was and gave us a map to help find it. The bathroom was big and the shower was great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NYCDavid Needs work, but nice place
Stayed for one night.
Pluses: Good location near Paddington. Walk in the opposite direction of Paddington towards Hyde Park and you can avoid the tourist restaurants. Nice, large room. The water/soda stocked mini-bar was nice.
Minuses: My TV didn't work - moved rooms. Pain. But they gave me free breakfast - thanks! Then I had no electricity the next morning went out. (put my card in, flipped the switch by the bed, no luck). Showered in the dark.
If they have to ask you three or four questions about the electricity, then the system is too complicated. Maybe mine DID work, but who knows?

Nice hotel in a great location for easy access to Paddington train station. I arrived to find two bottles of wine (red and white) and a fridge with soft drinks all complementary.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by POBOXJACKIE PLATINUM MEMERS - PRIORITY CLUB
THIS IS THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN REGARDING THE WAY THEY TREAT PLATINUM MEMBERS OF THE PRIORITY CLUB. IT IS A SHAME, BECAUSE I ACTUALLY LIKE STAYING AT THE HOTEL AND THE STAFF ARE EXTREMEMLY PLEASANT AND DO ALL THEY CAN TO MAKE YOUR STAY ENJOYABLE. SOMEONE NEEDS TO GET INTO THAT HOTEL AND EXPLAIN HOW PLATINUM MEMBERS SHOULD BE TREATED - I STAYED 3 DAYS THIS WEEK AT THE HOLIDAY INN MAYFAIR, LONDON AND THEY ARE JUST EXCELLENT! MAYBE SOMEONE FROM THIS HOTEL COULD GO TO THE MAYFAIR HOTEL FOR SOME TRAINING?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grandnat Great Hotel
My three main gripes with hotels throughout the world, but mainly in the UK, are as follows:
Extra charges for WiFi
Cold, congealed breakfast buffets
Outrageous charges for mini-bars
So I am delighted to have found a hotel chain, Indigo, which hits the spot in almost every way and succeeds in these 3 ways to improve hotels. Indigo Paddington, for example, is a flawless diamond hidden down a street about 2 minutes walk from Paddington station. This makes it a perfect base for business and pleasure trips. It only has 60 or so rooms so it feels intimate and cosy.
The rooms are quite small but they are brimming with lovely colourful fabrics, pictures and decorations. The bed is liberally covered in throws and cushions and is delightfully comfortable. In the bathroom is one of those showers with a head the size of a plate so you feel as if you are standing in the rain. If this is too much for you just use the second hand held shower head.
All rooms have free WiFi and soft drinks from the mini-bar are complimentary.
At breakfast you order from a menu and your plate is prepared fresh and brought to your table by the waiter. This alone would set Indigo above the majority of hotels in London.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DangerousDel Hotel and room excellent but service in Brasserie poor
We have stayed in Indigo Hotels on several occasions and this is our favorite. Great location, nice atmosphere, quality rooms and friendly reception staff. The only disappointment was the London Street Brasserie. While the ambiance is good and the quality of the food is good the service both for lunch and breakfast was very slow and the staff were not very attentive. Because of this we ate elsewhere each morning for breakfast which was a shame.
Overall we very much like the Indigo brand and if the Brasserie was better it would have been 5 star.

A single night stay in a great location for Paddington Station in London. Excellent links by tube to all of central London. Slept well after a quick look round this interesting area of London - Grand Union Canal and 'Little Venice' close by. Good breakfast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JFCZ Worst Hotel Indigo
As a platinum member I was very disappointed in this hotel - I've stayed at other Indigo's and they have always been very nice. This hotel has very small rooms and the staff were very unfriendly.
Reception staff did not have pre-check in ready, and were unwelcoming to say least and were put out by some very simple requests upon check in. Bar and restaurant staff were surly and slow.
There was no upgrade which Platinum should provide, and overall this is a very over priced hotel for something that is at best average.
I certainly won't be staying there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happyclap thank you to the staff
I cannot thank enough the staff on the morning I arrived. I was hours earlier than I should have been, absolutely shattered and they did their very best to have a room made up for me as quickly as they could. I am so grateful. The hotel is very good value for London and Paddington is well connected and very central.
The room really was pleasantly designed; the shower lovely.

Great location to Paddington Station especially for travel to Heathrow Airport. Loved the decor. Rooms clean and modern. I was only booked to stay one night but when all flights at Heathrow were cancelled due to an incident, I needed to find another night's accommodation late in the afternoon. I didn't hesitate to ring Hotel Indigo. The staff were excellent. A big thankyou to Alina who not only remembered my name when she saw me upon my return but provided wonderful assistance in what ended up being a 2 day delay in London. It was greatly appreciated especially as I was not well. I would certainly recommend this hotel and stay there again. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris50000 Fab bedroom and bathroom
Location was excellent, very close to Paddington Station, and we left our case before check-in time so that we could get out and explore.
The room was very nicely furnished, the bathroom was of a very high standard also, as well as being lovely and clean.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so cannot comment on it.
The only downside during my stay was the noise from the street in the early hours, which sounded like bottles being collected, which I guess is the downside of city life. I would definitely request a room on the other side of the corridor next time.

Excellent location - a hop skip and a jump away from Paddington station... makking access to LHR and other points very easy.
noise level from inside the hotel was minimum/quiet
Room size was as expected in London - however, downside - one too many easy chairs in a boutique sized room!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ajoxon1939 wonderful bar one exception
Have stayed at the indigo for many visits in the past five years. Consistently, the staff have been superb. Overly polite, helpful, pleasant and extremely nice. Luckily most of them are still there and know me well. I had the unfortunate experience of meeting your so called manager (at least that is who she said she was). She is rude, hostile and a huge disgrace to a very fine establishment. One of the reasons I stay at the Indigo is that it is an oasis of good manners and politeness in what is one of the rudest cities in the world. I hope you have transferred her to the Holiday Inn by time I return in December.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pam2041 Standard rooms too small for comfort - go for the King
On checking in for a three night stay was not welcomed as a Priority Rewards Member. So no "upgrade" as mentioned in the Priority Rewards statement.The "standard" room I was allocated was hot, small and funky - both in a good and bad way! There is no suitcase stretcher in the room as there is no room for a suitcase.Yes I love the design elements, but where is the comfort and liveability in this space.If the bed was much smaller and an addition of some comfortable seating, this would have been a more intelligent way of creating what is, a single occupancy, overnight only space,but the tariff I paid was signficant.As well,the overall comfort of a room should be checked before a guest takes occupancy.This room was very hot and the airconditioning could not be turned to cool.The view outside included an exhaust pipe which emitted a foul odour.I was moved to another room which was cooler,but still a "standard" room, as per the space limitations indicated above.In the morning I enquired about the priority rewards scheme as I was new to it and told that there was no guarantee of an upgrade(despite the contrary to statements from the Rewards HQ).However a King room was available and I transferred to this room.What a difference.I can only assume that the generous comments about Hotel Indigo are from guests staying in these rooms, which deserve praise.The dimensions work, albeit that I was on the 1st floor facing the square (which was lovely, a welcome relief from pipes and grime)but noise was an issue - but not particularly bothered about it.Had I not asked about the Rewards scheme, I believe I might have spent the three nights incarcerated in the "standard" but inadequate room. Kudos to the lovely lady coming around of a night with a chocolate, to the fantastic design elements in the King room - fantastic.I was very comfortable.But management should focus on the critique here regarding the standard rooms not the kudos for the King rooms.

The Hotel Indigo Paddington is my first choice when staying in the area. Location is great and convenient being near Paddington station.
The hotel atmosphere is refreshing and provides a homey feeling which is strengthened by the friendly and knowledgeable staff who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and cared for.

Visited hotel for 4th time and was the first time for 2 years
Welcomed as a platinium card holder and King Size Room was avalaible
Comfort is understated forgot how high beds in INDIGO Hotels are
Was ideal location for travelling to a concert at Royal Albert Hall
breakfast excellent hot and served rather than usual buffet
Hope to be back again when we are in London alot depends on what we doing and location but always use IHG hotels where possible when staying in London

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Girlwithcurl1 Good but expected more
The hotel looked nice and the location close to Paddington Station which was perfect but the staff left something to be desired and comfort was lacking. Also the shower was COLD! As far as the staff ... For example, at breakfast we endured the kitchen staff shouting at one another for over 10 minutes while eating average and overpriced food. And the front desk staff were aloof and unfriendly. Very disappointing after reading other reviews. Other con: street side rooms are subject to street noise and when the bars let out it can get loud. Would have been nice if the hotel staff discouraged people from hanging out on the sidewalk under our window. Bathroom had hair on the floor upon checkin. Plus: free water and wine in the room. Com: Bed frames felt through the mattress. Overall, looks pretty but looks are deceiving, this was overpriced, expensive, unhelpful and snooty staff, expensive food, bad waitstaff, uncomfortable beds, cold shower, loud street noise, free very small bottle of wine and water. We are priority members and have stayed in other Crowne locations in London, Florida, California, and San Juan Puerto Rico, but this does not stack up and we were not recognized as members. Go to the Crown in South Kensington instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WollyAdelged Service in the hotel was exceptional! Restaurant not so much!
We had a wonderful experience in London, and the hotel Indigo made it possible! The staff was exceptional, their customer service was Disney quality!
The location is perfect, right next to Paddington station for quick transfer to Heathrow via Heathrow express, Underground access, and bus stop. I highly recommend the underground day pass for zones 1 and 2. They are about 8 pounds each and good for the tube and the busses. Take bus 23 into the city and most of the tourist areas. The bus system is confusing at first, but with very little experience it's rewarding. If you get totally confused go underground, easier to understand but the view is not as nice LOL. One can also take the tube to and from the airport but we didn't try it.
The exception at the Indigo was in the restaurant where we went one morning for tea (Feb 23 about 11am). I had wanted to order a tea service that I saw on the dinner menu and asked the young person who was female, blonde, thin and cheeky. I asked to see a dinner menu to order it and she abruptly informed me the the lunch menu was what was in effect. She gave a lunch menu and while doing so said that I will have to tell her what I wanted! I told her to just bring us 2 coffees please, while trying very had to assuage her feelings that we were pleasant people. We sat down to drink our coffee and the person NEVER came back to check on us after delivering the coffee. After sitting there for 30 minutes I motioned for the young lady to please come back and she responded with a nod. 15 more minutes went by with no assistance. We finally just got up to leave and one of the male waiters asked us if we were ok. I said not really and asked what was wrong. He said I'm sorry and went to get a check so that we would be sure and pay for that inferior service. After reviewing the bill later I learned that a gratuity was attached automatically to my bill (insult to injury). Needless to say we did not return to the restaurant the rest of the stay.

I've stayed in the Indigo in Paddington a number of times when on business in the area. The hotel is comfortable and clean, ideally located and the staff are fantastic.
The rooms vary in size, and I have stayed in examples of most of them, (and I know which one is my favorite), the one thing they have in common is fabulous shower rooms.
The decor is refreshing and relects the character of the local area well.
The hotel location means that there is a large variet of restaurants and pubs on the doorstep and the trip into the west end is very easy with good bus routes.
I'll be back soon.

I think I could speak about the nice and comfy rooms, the complimentary drinks in room, delicious Full English Breakfast at the Brasserie or the great Gym they have. But instead I will just speak about the best thing they have, their Staff! They make me always feel special, always going the extra mile with a big smile!
Special thanks to Margaret in the reception, I feel home when at Hotel Indigo Paddington. There is no other place for me to stay when in London. Not sure how you do it but keep getting great people in there.
