What’s your budget for the hotel, and for how many people?

All of the Park Lane hotels are perfect for Winter Wonderland but they are pricey

Check out the Paddington hotels on https://www.booking.com/

You may be able to find a hotel where you can walk down through Hyde Park to Winter Wonderland.

Check the feedback and book direct if you can.

It does not really matter where you stay as Hyde Park Underground station is near the corner of Hyde Park where Winter Wonderland is ususally situated, and plenty of buses go there too.

Are you arriving to Paddington from where you live in the UK, or are you going to be using the silly expensive Heathrow Express, perchance?

Hmmn, looking at the map for WW for this year, the site is much bigger than it used to be, and has shifted a little bit further north in the park.

Hyde Park Station is still good though, Marble Arch is also good, depends which gate you have to enter by with your booking I guess.

Buses run down Park Lane.....

Agree with post #3 - you don't have to stay very close by as there are good tube/bus links to Hyde Park. As you're also interested in the Eye and Shard, you could consider the South Bank area - there are Premier Inns at Waterloo and County Hall that might be of interest. Have you got a budget in mind, and for how many people (adults/children) are you booking?

In Paddington, lots of budget B&B's on Sussex Gardens.

Just checking that you know you need to book for Winter Wonderland this year, whereas in previous years you could just walk in. I believe it's free at off-peak times and up to £7.50 at peak times, but you still need to book even for off-peak.

We also arrive into Paddington by train, Gareth, but we wouldn't necessarily want to stay close to Hyde Park Corner and WW.

I don't think any hotel is going to be convenient for the three things you have mentioned, but as a fan of the area around Blackfriars Bridge I'd take a look at the options around there, because you can walk down to London Bridge and to Waterloo. You can also get to Hyde Park Corner by either walking down to Aldwych and catching the number 9 there, or taking the 11 from Ludgate Circus or 15 and changing buses at Aldwych.

We like seeing the Christmas lights from a bus!
