Budget hotel just moments away from Paddington and Hyde Park
Located just 100 yards from Paddington railway and underground stations, the Dolphin Hotel London is not only easy to access for both domestic and international visitors, but also perfectly located for those hoping to visit some of the citys most famous attractions.
Travellers arriving at Heathrow International Airport will be able to utilise an express railway service that terminates at Paddington, just a few seconds from the hotel. Visitors arriving at any of Londons other airports will find the station easily reached via the tube/underground service.
The Victorian building that houses the hotel consists of 33 guestrooms, some of which have en-suite bathrooms whilst others have shared facilities. Each room is equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, direct dial telephone, refrigerator, and television complete with satellite television. The majority of rooms also feature a safe, hairdryer, and trouser press.
Breakfast is served each morning in a 30-seater breakfast room. This room also doubles as a meeting room, which is suitable for those corporate guests visiting the city. Internet access is available for a surcharge. A lounge area also provides a setting for guests to relax after a hard day in London.
Whilst the Dolphin Hotel London doesnt contain the most elaborate of amenities, its Norfolk Square location is perfect for those visiting the city either on business or pleasure. The London Underground ensures that individuals can make their way around the city with minimum fuss. The business districts of Canary Wharf and East End financial districts are only a short train journey away, whilst those many city centre based businesses are readily available.
For leisure tourists the 2-star propertys location is enviable. Within walking distance of Hyde Park, hotel visitors neednt even venture underground to visit many of those famous London sites. Hyde Park itself serves a dual role; on one hand its a perfect place to lay back and relax, but on the other it is a thriving hub of activity, particularly during the summer when massive music concerts are held throughout the season.
A short walk through Hyde Park to its east side will see visitors at the start of Oxford Street, the nations most famous shopping district. This road, the busiest shopping street in the whole of Europe, is full of huge department stores and smaller independent shops. If youre looking to dent that credit card this is the place to visit.
Oxford Street itself leads to both the West End, home of a multitude of theatres, and Piccadilly Circus, home to the famous building-sized electronic screens that are famed throughout the world. Either of these locations offers a wide range of activities and well as plenty of restaurants, pubs, and bars, where visitors can dine and drink into the early hours of the morning.
As well as these attractions, the Dolphin Hotel London also allows easy access to a large number of other locations and attractions, including sporting stadiums, historic landmarks and buildings, markets, and museums. Guests at the Dolphin will find no trouble locating any of these.
