Location: Decent location. 10 mins walk from Paddington station if you take back side ramp from Platform 8 and turn right. If you take the Heathrow express from airport, you won't ever need a taxi to reach here. The only downside of this location is that it is at the end of a business area and hence things die down...

Location is very good for West London & Heathrow Express but not so ideal for the East and there is not a lot around in the evening, a taxi back form central London will cost aroudn 20gbp which is not ideal and the walk back from the tube is along side a canal which is not good for woman. Hotel...

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I am sorry to read that you did not find the hotel or area exciting. In my views, Paddington central where the hotel is located is a very nice modern development, very safe with 24 hours security and the walk back from the station is also very safe. The hotel...

Excellent location, staff were very friendly and accommodating. Novotel always delivers. Clean, great rooms, excellent breakfast. That's why we always use Novotel, Melbourne - Australia, Paris, London. Always the same high standard regardless of where in the world you choose to visit. Upgrading to the executive package is really worth it, free wifi and unlimited movies.

We stayed at The Novotel Paddington because we wanted a hotel close to Paddington station and with a swimming pool. I booked through hotels.com and then rang them to ask for an accessible room. There was no problem at all and the staff were very professional yet friendly. The room itself was very spacious,so enough room to get around in...

Novotel London Paddington is among rare hotel finds that combine strategic location, quality, reasonable rates, cleanliness, and competent staff. The quite new hotel is wedged between railroad tracks and a busy highway, within easy walking distance from London's rail and underground Paddington station. Yet, paradoxically, despite its central location, the hotel's interior is extremely quiet, thanks to triple-glazed windows, causing...

Conveniently located near to Paddington Station so easy express access from/to London Heathrow and to the tube system. A non-typical "Novatel" hotel in a new and modern office development area. Nicely appointed, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff and excellent breakfasts. Some pleasant canal walks nearby, close to "LIttle Venice" and only 30 minutes from the Portabello Road "The Warwick Castle"...

The hotel is quite new and is located in a "posh" business and surrounded by rather grand office buildings.
