Hilton London Metropole
Advantages: Within walking distance to central London.
Disadvantages: Very large and very busy.
The Hilton Metropole is just 10 minutes walk from central London and 5 minutes walk from Paddington station. It is situated on the busy Edgware Road. We have stayed there on three occassions and we have always walked from the hotel to wherever we have wanted to go.
We found that Hilton offered the best value for money on weekend breaks, and on our last visit we used Tesco Clubcard vouchers to pay for our stay. Hilton offer a family deal if you have two rooms - the second room is half price.
The hotel is very large and very busy. The rooms are standard hotel fair, but comfortable. The higher up the tower your room is the better the veiws.
The breakfast is great, but as it is a busy hotel you may have to wait for a table. The selection of food is vast!
There are a couple of resaurants in the hotel, but we preffered to eat elswhere. Opposite the hotel is an M&S, so it's easy to pop out and get a snack.
The hotel has a small pool and gym. For the size of hotel, it does seem rather small. However we used this facility daily and it was never over crowded.
There is a car park underneath the hotel, but at £30 a night it is quite expensive.
You are able to leave your luggage on the day of departure, after you have checked out of your room, with 'Left Luggage'. I suggest that you make sure your cases are easy to spot as so many people do this. At the end of a long day, you don't want to spend hours searching for your case amongst a sea of others!
We have enjoyed all our visits to this hotel and would go back.
Summary: Great place to stay for a few days in London.
