“ Quaint boutique hotel in central london ”5 of 5 stars Reviewed 10 january 2017 on tripadvisor
We've been to London many times and each time try to stay in a different hotel. Many we have been too feel very large and impersonal however the Indigo is completely the opposite.
The hotels location is a stones through from Paddington Station looking onto a small garden area. It is surrounded by eateries and local pubs.
Its a small hotel set in a Victorian townhouse before arrival the hotel contacted us to ask if we had any preferences / requests for our stay and they would do their best to fulfill them. I felt this was a lovely personal touch.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who offered us an upgrade to a King room, they enquired as to the purpose of our stay and proceeded to give us tips and ideas.
The rooms itself was lovely not huge but had ample space for 2 people staying a weekend. The bathroom was small but perfectly functional and every inch of space was used to its best - the shower was lovely may I add.
The room had all the mod cons to make your stay comfortable - usb docks on bed side unit were great for charging devices when sockets often are hard to find.
We had French doors which opened onto the road we had a tiny balcony which you couldn't stand on and during November it was nice to have a bit of fresh air. Even though we were on the road it wasn't noisy however I cant comment what it would be midweek with traffic passing by - the hop on hop off tour buses do travel down the road. Ear plugs are provided in the room if you need quiet.
All rooms come with a smartphone free to use for the duration of your stay - this was a great feature. The phone has unlimited data, you can use it for national and international calls. It is loaded with guides for your time in London for those who haven't been before and it has offers and discounts during your stay.
Complimentary soft drinks are provided in the fridge and a coffee machine with pods.
The only let down was the restaurant we waited nearly an hour for our mains when others had sat down after us and already had theirs we had to chase twice - that being said it was a busy Saturday night but as the only eatery in the hotel they were full and simply couldn't cope. The food however was delicious and home made.
For breakfast we skipped the hotel and went 2 doors down to a lovely delhi who served a fab English breakfast at a very reasonable price for central London as it was NFL day this meal set us up for a long day.
All in all I look forward to staying there again.
