Setting

Pulsing Paddington

London boutique hotel The Pilgrm is an ode to British craftsmanship, delivering genuine, no-frills hospitality that was inspired by the building's historic bones. A stone’s throw from Paddington station, the hotel sits in a part of London that was shaped by the Victorian era. Step inside, and you’ll find interiors that read like a love letter to that time, showcasing cast-iron radiators, Edison bulbs and antique mahogany parquet – some of it 200 years old. Cocktail bar and restaurant the Lounge gives the theme of historical connection a further turn of the screw, serving cuisine that celebrates the city’s long-standing relationship with the wider world.

Rooms

Check–Out

Noon, but flexible, subject to availability. Earliest check-in, 3pm.

Rates

Double rooms from $116.64 (£91), excluding tax at 20 per cent.

More details

Room rates don’t usually include breakfast, which can be taken from the Continental buffet or the list of enticing à la carte options. For something a little different, try the tea-poached egg with kimchi rice.

Also

There are no bellboys, valets or a traditional lobby at the hotel, nor will you find a minibar, desk or telephone in your room. With the furnishings and staff alike, the hotel has pared things back to what you really need – and then focused on making them the best they can be.

At the hotel

Café; lounge area; pantries with tea, coffee and hot chocolate on each floor; free WiFi throughout. In rooms: flatscreen TV (except in the Bunk rooms), Marshall speaker with Bluetooth connectivity, a selection of books and magazines, and bespoke bath products made by Ren.

Our favourite rooms

Three of the corner rooms in the 'W' Wing have two windows, giving you views over London Street and into leafy Norfolk Square, where you can often spot sage locals having their weekly skirmish on the chessboard. Light sleepers will like the rooms facing the interior courtyard, which are better protected from any street noise.

Packing tips

If you’re staying in a Bunk room, you’ll need to bring your own device if you’re hoping for some screentime. Don’t overdo it on the packing, as even the large rooms have limited storage space.

Also

The hotel has a lift, but the building's historic layout means there are stairs at the entrance and in many of the corridors, making it unsuitable for wheelchair users.

Children

Children of all ages are welcome, but the hotel is best suited to adults. There are no extra beds, but baby cots (suitable for children up to the age of two) can be added to Large rooms on request. Young Smiths are allowed in the Lounge until 5pm.

Food and Drink

Photos The Pilgrm food and drink

Top Table

The Lounge has a 7-metre-long green velvet sofa, made bespoke by Sheffield-based designers 93ft.

Dress Code

More bohemian than nearby Mayfair or Kensington, Paddington and Marylebone tend to inspire a look that’s considered but not flashy.

Hotel restaurant

The Lounge is the hotel’s social heart, straddling the boundaries between a restaurant, cocktail bar and drawing room. Unmistakeably British in character, it showcases furnishings made from materials that have stood the test of time, now revived and repurposed by expert hands. Mid-century modern furniture sits alongside chevron parquet flooring, a velvet banquette and a bar with a top cut from racing-green marble. The cuisine nods towards Paddington's relationship with the city and the wider world, with British charcuterie from Cannon & Cannon of London’s Borough Market, a dahl of the day inspired by the flavours of India, and pork-belly ramen that acknowledges the city’s ties with the Far East. Downstairs by the entrance, there’s also an elegant, vintage-styled café with exposed-brick walls, parquet flooring and supple leather banquettes. The hotel has had their own bespoke blend of coffee made, which is best accompanied by one of their flaky pastries or aromatic cinnamon buns.

Hotel bar

Like so much at the hotel, the bar is bound up with the idea of a journey – fitting when it sits so close to the station. For their cocktail offering, they’ve partnered with some of world’s best-loved cocktail bars, who are pre-bottling their signature drinks exclusively for the hotel. For a taste of Athens, try the Reverse Martinez, which hails from the Greek city’s renowned Clumsies bar. A reimagining of the drink that inspired the Martini, this fine-tuned tipple muddles rose vermouth with gin, maraschino liqueur and bitters.

Last orders

Breakfast is served from 7am to 10am in the Lounge; the café opens at 6:30am and serves until 4pm; drinks flow from 12 noon to 11pm in the bar.

Room service

There's no room service, but you'll find a list of pantry snacks in the Lounge.

Planes

London Heathrow is the airport to aim for. Unless you’re loaded with luggage, the Heathrow Express is the quickest (and cheapest) way to get to the hotel, taking only 15 minutes to reach Paddington. By car, you can reach the hotel in around 45 minutes, but you’ll be travelling on one of the main arteries into the city, so traffic can add to this considerably.

Trains

We don’t advocate stone throwing, but you could easily land one on Paddington's Circle line platform from some of the windows. If you’re arriving into King’s Cross by train, take the (yellow) Circle line towards Hammersmith; it’s five stops to Paddington.

Automobiles

You won’t need a car if you’re staying at the Pilgrm. With one of London’s transport hubs so close by, you’re covered for travel throughout the city and further afield. If you do plan to drive, be aware that the hotel lies within London’s Congestion Charge Zone – expect to pay £11.50 a day if driving between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday. Smith24 can arrange car hire; call anytime, day or night.

Worth getting out of bed for

Home to Arthur Conan Doyle's sharp-witted Sherlock, nearby Marylebone is populated with upmarket boutiques, restaurants and cafés. Marylebone High Street and Chiltern Street are particularly bountiful, offering a less frantic shopping experience than that found on Oxford or Regent Street. Those looking to escape the crowds altogether will enjoy a stroll through Hyde Park, whose 350-acres of inner-city greenery include tree-flanked boulevards, lawns and wooded areas. It’s here that you’ll find the man-made Serpentine lake, offering boating and swimming in summer. Back on land, there’s the Serpentine and Serpentine Sackler Galleriesthe latter shaped in parts by the late Zaha Hadid. Gin fiends should make their way westwards to Chiswick, home to the Sipsmith distillery. As the first copper-pot distillery to be built in London for almost 200 years, it’s well worth a look round; tours are held in the evening on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesdays, Sipmsith run their Sipper Club, which starts with a tour of the distillery before making a (short) pilgrimage to nearby Charlotte's Bistro, where a gin-inspired dinner (and more sipping) will ensue.

Local restaurants

Set up in honour of foreign correspondents who lost their lives in conflict zones, the Frontline Club is first and foremost a media club, but it also has a popular restaurant that draws a lively, intelligent crowd. The cuisine is mostly British and European, with many ingredients coming from the owner’s own farm in Norfolk. The walls are hung with some of the most iconic photographs of the 20th century, so you're guaranteed to see a famous face on any given night. Michelin-starred Trishna serves Indian coastal cuisine in an elegant (but relaxed) setting of wooden panelling, brass-edged mirrors and white-washed brick. The service is warm-hearted and the wine list is extensive; the seven course taster menu is particularly popular. Marylebone mainstay The Gate only serves vegetarian fare, but even the most committed meat eaters will be impressed by the level of creativity and flavour that goes into each dish. The menu shows a diverse range of culinary influences, particularly those from India and the Arab world. 

Local cafés

Part Allpress coffee shop, part international newsagent, Monocle’s Kioskafé attracts many a worldly pilgrim. In summer, stop in for the latest issue and an accompanying Aperol Spritz; in winter, take a leisurely look at their magazine selection over mulled wine.

Anonymous review

By Louis-Nicolas Darbon, Designer

It’s Friday night and Paddington Station is busy with crowds coming and going away for the weekend. I weave through the suitcases and people rushing to catch their trains. Luckily, my map says it’s only two minutes to my destination: the Pilgrm, a new hotel with old-world charm, set on a street packed with bars and restaurants. It’s easy to miss, with a charcoal-black façade that could deftly pass as a coffee shop. But after my own pilgrimage, I finally step through the doors of the three-storey boutique hotel. 

For a second, I feel like I’m in New York. There’s no traditional reception desk or check-in process. Instead of a lobby, there’s a coffee bar and lounge. The vibe is inviting and hipster-friendly – something you’d find in Williamsburg, not in a converted Victorian townhouse. I've already checked in online, so I'm given my keys without hassle. 

Why aren’t all check-ins this smooth, I think, as I’m shown straight to my room on the first floor? Windows face towards the London Mews side street; other rooms look onto London Street or Norfolk Square, with its leafy, oasis-like gardens. Although my bed is pretty much everything that fits in the room, every inch of the space has been considered. 

It’s packed full of design features and minimalist furniture: from Marshall speakers to Tom Dixon rugs, lifestyle magazines and a monochrome bathroom stocked with covetable Ren products. Spread across four townhouses, the hotel has 73 rooms in total, including some bunks that are great for families and friends, and larger rooms for those needing more space. Thoughtful design unites them.

I quickly drop my bag and swap the suit for jeans and a leather jacket to slot in with the hotel’s clientele. The guy at reception tells me the lounge is open late, so I head to the first floor where the bartender is ready to pour me a drink. The staff here are immediately friendly – drink in hand, I already feel at home.

The lounge, with its views of London Street, tactile velvet sofas and chairs in every colour, is welcoming. I can see why it’s so popular, not just with hotel guests, but Londoners too, who seem to have found their new neighbourhood hangout. 

It serves food until 10pm, of the updated bacon-butty, mac-and-cheese variety, with the kitchen headed up by Sara Lewis. The cocktails are not to be missed either, with collaborations from bars around the world, including the Clumsies in Athens and London’s own Bar Termini. I summon another, this time my favourite: a vodka sour, perfectly presented here and served with a twist.

I’m late for dinner, but thankfully the Pilgrm is so well located, right in middle of everything, that it’s only a short cab drive from my favourite parts of town: Chiltern Street and Mayfair. What's not to like about this place?

The next morning I have a busy day ahead. But with breakfast being my favourite meal, I’m impressed by what’s served in the lounge: fresh pastries and bread from Borough Market, tea-poached eggs and homemade granola. 

It might be one of the best I’ve had. Everyone else seems to be of the same opinion: the breakfast here is a 10 out of 10. 

It’s upped the ante for Paddington, too, not an area previously known for its cool credentials – until now. Monocle’s Kioskafe cafe is just around the corner, and restaurants such as Dinings and Kurobuta are helping to transform this patch into a place that modern-day travellers actually want to make a pilgrimage to. Watch this space..

The Guestbook

Whenever you book a stay at a Smith hotel or villa, we’ll invite you to review it when you get back. Read what other Smith members had to say in The Pilgrm’s Guestbook below.

We loved

I loved the style of the hotel – the building has been beautifully restored and styled for a true London vibe. The room was comfortable with some nice stylish touches, and the bathroom was gorgeous. The staff were friendly and provided me with cold water and a few other treats on check in. The food in the lounge was wonderful, although I only experienced the breakfast menu. If you're travelling in and out of the UK by train, or need close access to the airport – this hotel is perfect. The Heathrow Express train takes you from Paddington Station to Heathrow in 15 minutes, and the station is a two-minute walk from the hotel front door.

Don’t expect

Don't expect complete peace and quiet as you are in the centre of London. There are a number of pubs and loud night spaces in the street, so depending on your room you may have some outside night noises.

A big room, which is easy to access. The hotel is split across several buildings (wings) and can be difficult to navigate, especially with lots of heavy luggage. The rooms are very small and had no air-conditioning, which made sleeping difficult.

The service was fantastic - I loved the staff and the food in the cafe was fantastic. I had a peach and burrata cheese salad one night that was out of this world. The prices for the food were reasonable and the lobby and cafe had a great vibe (and played fantastic music). I also really liked the still and sparkling water on tap in the lobby. We appreciated how close the hotel is to Paddington Station. While it is not a quiet or picturesque neighborhood per se, the convenience of having the train and tube station so nearby made getting around the city incredibly easy. If you are looking for a great walk with lots of restaurants and bars to walk by, definitely hit up the area on the south side of the Thames near the London Eye. The area has changed dramatically since my last visit to London and I loved seeing all the new places to eat, drink, and people watch in the area. A very lively scene yet not at all crowded or obnoxious.

Don’t expect

A lot of space and/or places to put things away in your room. Air conditioning.

I loved the linen, very comfortable beds, authentic furnishings, the coffee shop and lounge. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. I also loved the location. Walk down the road and stroll through beautiful Hyde Park. Pack a picnic if it's warm or buy ice creams to enjoy from the vendors! It is a haven of green space in the middle of the city. The Little Venice canals are also five minutes away - one of London's hidden secrets. Stroll along the canal, admire the riverboats and have lunch or dinner next to the water at the delicious Summerhouse restaurant.

Don’t expect

Don't stay here in summer! We were unlucky enough to book our stay for a week with warm temperatures. The hotel has no air conditioning and windows only open a tiny amount due to health and safety regulations. This meant that even with two fans (we requested extra) there was no air circulating and the rooms were incredibly hot which made being in the rooms for any amount of time unbearable and sleeping almost impossible. We had booked two rooms and we had to move twice to a different section of the hotel where the rooms were slightly cooler.

This is a beautifully designed hotel with lovely interiors in a fantastic location right next to Paddington station. Staff were very friendly and the REN products are a real perk! It has a lovely restaurant and cafe. We used the hotel as a base to get to other areas in central london which are very accessible from Paddington

Don’t expect

Peace and quiet or air con. Due to its location next to Paddington station and a hospital it can be quite noisy at night if you have the window open (which we had to as it was a hot night and there isn't any air con in the room).

It's not easy to make a cup of tea as there's no facilities in room but you can go to a shared pantry which has everything you need. However to take a cuppa back to our room from the nearest pantry I could find I had to struggle with 2 fire doors and stairs, not ideal with a cuppa in both hands. No hair conditioner but samples of REN products such as 'firm and lift eye cream' which although grateful for would have preferred the basics. Might struggle if a light sleeper, we asked for a room at the back, which we got but a downside of being so close to Paddington is that the windows rattled every 10 minutes apart for a few hours in the early morning.

We loved staying at The Pilgrm. It offered a warm, calm and contemporary respite from the rainy cold London weather. Location is a short cab/walk/ tubes to everything. The large room was bigger than we expected, allowing space for 2 large suitcases and 2 cabin bags. The large bed divine and linen was quality. Bathroom was small but perfectly formed. Staff were incredibly helpful, lots of thoughtful extras details, complimentary loan umbrellas, sparking and still water available 24/7, a real cafe serving decent coffee in house and the gorgeous little restaurant/bar on the 1st floor offering a small but inspired menu – brilliant chef. Great after a busy day exploring without feeling like you eating in a Hotel. We would book just to eat and relax here. It felt fresh and just what London's needs. Great start to our trip.

Super convenient to Paddington and the Heathrow Express and centrally located to see London. Staff was nice and helpful. The rooms are ok, well sound-proofed and quiet, though small; the hotel was still a work in progress in terms of renovations, but a better option than most things in that area. Nice lounge area and friendly chef for breakfast. You're 2 min away from the start of a lovely walk by the canals to Little Venice (starting behind St Mary's hospital). The Frontline Club for food and drinks.

Space, obviously. Or much of a practical touch to the rooms. Design it is, but not try and tested...

The staff were so helpful and lovely. They very sweetly upgraded our room to a large from a medium. We were also able to check in earlier than expected. They found out it was my birthday and even popped up to my room with some ren beauty treats as a gift with a lovely little note, thanking me for my stay. We loved the philosophy of the hotel, everything is scaled back to be more environmentally friendly. We loved the Marshall speaker in the room too, very cool, we put it to some good use in prep for our evening outings. The bed was very comfortable and allergy friendly for my companion. The breakfast in the lounge was really good, even though the offering is pretty small. We recommend the vegan options of the avocado and sweet potato dish, so delicious. We only had to pay about £5-6 on check out as the £20 voucher offered by Mr Mrs Smith covered the majority of the breakfast bill. Although the hotel is paired back and minimalist, this did give us a bit of a Hoxton Hotel vibe: very cool and trendy without the pretense.

Don’t expect

Part of the environmentally friendly aspect meant no aircon, not an issue in the cold winters but can imagine it being a problem in the summer. This is not a hotel for big special pampering occasions or romantic staycations, the room is rather basic but had everything we neededm, including a TV and speakers. But this suited my companion and I as we had plans during the day and the evening, but we wanted to stay in a hotel with a boutique vibe. Recommend requesting a room at the back of the hotel as the front is noisy. Unfortunately, during our stay the alarm of one of the restaurants opposite decided to go off at 5am in the morning and continued to do so for a full hour, so that did put a slight dampener on our stay. I also heard the rather loud tannoy announcement from the nearby Paddington station. Although the location was definitely one of its perks, too: literally a few steps from the underground connection.

The Pilgrm for its modern aesthetic, room, bathroom with Ren products and the breakfast/coffee bar that provides a great start to the day. It is contemporary accommodation that allows you to check in and out on-line, perfect for a night in town whether it be business or pleasure. It has managed to maintain a friendly hospitable hotelier approach, on a recent stay pre-Christmas I was unfortunate to lose a necklace in the room; when my husband mentioned in passing on checking out by lunch they had called to say that had retrieved it; first class modern service we will be visiting again.

Don't expect a lot of room, a small room would be a squeeze for two people or lots of amenities it is what it says on the tin. Don't expect the best nights sleep – due to its location in central London it was noisy, you can hear the tube rumbling underneath throughout the night and shouting outside all night as the hotel is near quite a lot of pubs. Having said that, it wouldn't put me off staying again for the price and location.
