Stayed for a couple of nights during paralympics, about 5-8mins along pleasant canalside walk from Paddington u/ground ( so good connections to anywhere in london). Usual clean comfortable novotel standard, very quiet despite being over railway line. Nice pool, about 8m long so good for a sunday morning splash with the kids. Restuarants/bars 2-3 mins walk away. Only gripe is...

Very nice, well-equipped room, comfortable bed, clean and well-fitted bathroom, nice linen and towels. The road outside looks busy, but the hotel must have excellent double glazing, as it was really quiet. The main feature is the really good location near Bankside, and I will use the hotel again.

We stayed for 2 nights and we were pleasantly surprised to find a reasonably priced London hotel with modern, comfortable rooms and really good service. I booked because of good Trip Advisor reviews and because it has a pool- which my husband used several times. We had room service the first night- It did take a little time to place...

Just needed a one-night place to stay after flying in from Heathrow and heading out on a train the next morning. This hotel is just a block away from Paddington station - just takes a bit of orientation to figure out the best way to leave the station and get to the hotel - especially with some construction going on....

Many thanks for your review about your recent stay with us. The hotel is indeed very close to Paddington station and the easiest way to get to it is to leave the station by the exit at the top of the stairs alongside platform 8. You then just need to follow the canal towards Sheldon square and the hotel is...

Spent 2 nights in this hotel when up in London on business. Business was in the Hilton Metropole significantly more pricey and just 10 minutes walk away from the Novotel. This hotel is very convenient for trains into Paddington a short walk away from the rear of the station along the canal. Just outside the hotel are restaurants, bars and...

The hotel was nice enough, modern and light. Enjoyed the ability to play mp3/ipod throughout the room and through speakers in the bathroom which came with a standard room (no need to upgrade for the Bose system). Well located and with plenty of amenities and travel links on the doorstep. Disappointed to find the bar close before midnight despite staying...

We stayed in the London Paddington Novotel during a little city trip in between the Olympics and Paralympics, with our 6.5 month old baby-boy. Apart from being a comfortable and clean hotel in a great, sheltered, location with a phenomenal breakfast buffet, the most noticeable thing about this hotel is what we considered to be the best hotel-service ever! Nothing,...
