Just to let you know that I have stayed in Paddington on 2 separate occasions years apart and have not felt unsafe there at all.

The first time I was there I was with a travel companion who was not much for going out after dinner - so I would go out for a little walk on my own each night just to alleviate the bordom (daylight savings) - by the way I was only 29 at the time.

This last time I was travelling with my husband who was not very well during our time in London - and we had chosen to stay in Paddington just because of how much I had enjoyed it and it's location to everything the last time and that it had good, budget priced, hotels - and again I was left to my own devices, again had no problem walking down to the shops in the early evening (not daylight savings) and to get something for dinner - 37 this time.

We stayed at the Balmoral House Hotel near Paddington in October, and had no complaints whatsoever. The room was decent and not terribly expensive (price included a filling breakfast), and the neighborhood seemed quite safe, with several interesting restaurants and pubs. We booked it via the hotel's website, without any difficulty.

My son just stayed at the Cumberland Hotel almost smack dab over the Marble Arch tube station for 80 pounds per night. Meridien has purchased it and is renovating it. Not a lot of work going on that was noticable to me when he showed me the place. He got an already renovated room with plasma tv, green/white glass closet doors, all white bed linens and total marble bath (obviously it's being redone to be modern in the Phillipe Starke style) for that 80 pounds. Don't know how long this bargain is available but it sure wouldn't hurt to check.

Two years ago we stayed at the Rembrandt in South Kensington. Great location, across from the V&A,three blocks from Harrods, a short walk to Hyde Park and Kensington Palace. Also just a block from a tube station so all of London was easily assessible. It was quiet, comfortable and included a full breakfast each morning.
