A stones throw away from the hustle and bustle of Paddington Station, The Pilgrm is a glorious eco-friendly oasis of calm, located on London Street.

With three wings and a variety of 73 rooms, choose from the Bunks or a room size of your choice, you are in control of your surroundings, creating your own little safe haven for your stay. The Pilgrm has a warming no-nonsense, make-yourself-at-home ethos, including a pantry full of teas, coffee and water to visit as many times as your hot drink taste buds desire. The Pilgrm is inspired by old world design, with clear focus on the wonders of British craftsmanship. Given the location, this haven has cleverly tapped into the concept of the modern traveller, fusing modern design sprinkled with home comforts. With their slogan, “everything you need, nothing you don’t” sums up their simplistic and fuss-free hospitality.

The lounge hosts the primary place to chill, asides from the modestly modern bedrooms. The decor is filled with tumbling greenery, spotted throughout the hotel. Full of plentiful magazines and classic fiction, we are also treated to smooth jazz softly filling the lounge as we sip our tea in the cosy dimly lit room, prying over a concise all day breakfast menu.

A hidden treasure amongst the fast-pace energy of central London, The Pilgrm is the perfect stay for a quiet night sleep and truly lends itself to your home away from home.
