This hotel is a gem, just across the road from Paddington Station. (You can walk under the roadway to paddington station in about 5 minutes.) The reviewers who said it was farther from Paddington appartently did not find the short route walk to the station. You need to walk across the courtyard, behind the restaurants, to the left, where you...

This hotel was okay. The hotel itself was clean and nice, but we were a little disappointed with the location. On a map, it looks much closer to Paddington than it felt when we were walking. Plus, with the construction going on, if you don't know exactly where to go (which is out the back way towards the canal), it...

The property may be an attractive one but the attitude of the staff is disapointing on so many levels. Rude, unhelpful ond condescending is what I encountered, and that was only while liasing with them over the phone! I'm not interested in paying nearly GBP200 for that type of service there are better nice properties in London

We only stayed at this hotel one night on our return trip from Greece back to the states, but we really enjoyed it. The room size was generous and the bed was comfortable. We found the staff to be very helpful. My only compliant is that the location is a bit out of reach of a quick walk down to...

We booked the Novotel because it was so close to Paddington Train station. We arrived 4 hours before our check in time, expecting to just drop off our luggage and come back later. Instead, we were warmly welcomed by Saul at the front desk. He made us feel so very valued and told us we were quite welcome to check...

We booked two executive double rooms for the four of us. The hotel is conveniently located being walking distance from Paddington where the Heathrow Express arrives, but the signposting could be better. The staff were friendly and helpful at the front desk. The rooms were well equipped, but extremely compact and we had a lovely view of the office building...

Stayed here in May, in a superior room with queensize bed. The hotel itself is nice, clean and modern, but in all honesty nothing to make it outstanding over any other 4 star hotel.

Very pleasant stay and perfectly located for business near Paddington station Bar did not open too late and the staff looked liked they wanted to go home but I suppose that is fair enough after 11pm. Breakfast horrendously overpriced!! Avoid and go to Starbucks instead!
