The Hilton London Metropole can be found located just a short walk from Paddington Station. We have driven past this hotel numerous times over the years when heading out of London and I have always been quite intrigued by it; so we finally made the decision to check-in and experience it for ourselves.

We were initially quite impressed, having arrived by car, it was a great luxury being able to park in the hotel’s own car park, which was a much welcomed facility. This is all too rare in the centre of London and really does make travelling to a hotel so much easier.

After parking and making our way to the hotel reception, we joined the large queue of guests checking in - this is clearly a very popular hotel. Once inside you get a true sense as to the scale of this building, which really is ginormous in size. The building has been purpose built to accommodate large amounts of guests, and guests really do arrive by the coach load here.

We eventually checked in and were shown on our way to the East Wing, where we were staying in one of their Executive Rooms. Due to the size of the building, you must be prepared for a fairly long walk if you're staying in the East Wing.

“The Hilton London Metropole is a functional hotel that offers comfortable rooms with plenty of facilities.”

Our Executive Room was fairly spacious, contemporary in design and minimalistic. Along with the king size bed, we had the use of a small desk, a flat screen television and a mini bar, along with a small wardrobe. The bathroom also offered a continuation of the minimalistic design, and included a bath and shower along with a single wash basin and a couple of not-so-fluffy towels.

One of the perks of staying in an Executive Room is that you also have access to the Executive Lounge located in the West Wing. The Executive Lounge is a private lounge that offers a quiet place to sit and relax whilst enjoying a coffee. Selections of complimentary drinks are available in the Executive Lounge throughout the day, along with afternoon tea and alcohol and canapés in the evening.

The health club is also located in the West Wing, where you will find the hotel’s indoor swimming pool and fitness centre. The hotel is home to a number of casual bars and restaurants, along with a Starbucks coffee shop.

We would certainly recommend this hotel for the corporate business traveller, as it offers everything one would need. This is a functional hotel that offers comfortable rooms with plenty of facilities.
