One night en route to USA. Convenient in and out of Paddington station, an easy walk. Typical Novotel and if you have stayed with the chain before you'll get no surprises. Reasonable sized rooms, nothing huge, skilfully designed space saving bathroom. TV channels slightly biased towards French (chain is part of Accor I believe). Comfortable beds, pillows. Didn't have breakfastr... More

We stayed here for a weekend visiting friends and sight-seeing. Once you have negotiated your way out of the back of Paddington Station, it's a short walk, although best to have seen a picture of the hotel previously to distinguish it from the other office blocks - some signage would help. The traffic-free area of the hotel is fantastic, with... More

No good for family vacation. Reception is very unfriendly. Just did their job. Never behaved without guests' request. But breakfast was so tasty. Your staffs need some training of smile... Novotel-surely 4 star hotel, no more...

Dear Park Y, Considering Novotel is probably the most family friendly brand in the Accor group, I was quite disapointed to learn that our Reception team was perceived as uncaring and unfriendly. I would very much welcome the opportunity to hear more details about your experience. My email H6455-rd@accor.com. Kind Regards, Paulo Bernini. More

Perfect location, 2 mins walk to Paddington station. Quick easy check in, rooms were quite nice and large enough to fit in the suitcases, good breakfast. The Nepresso machine was a very welcome touch. Staff welcoming and friendly.Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in this area.

Check in was, as other reviews, very slow and not overly friendly but otherwise this was a pretty decent hotel in a decent area of london. We had 3 adults sharing (the normal queen-size bed and the pull out, which is a very basic sofa bed with the usual uncomfortable bar in the middle of your back) - other than... More

As a family and on business this is always a great hotel. The staff are friendly and the hotel is great. During the summer you can use the outdoor grass for a picnic or stretch out under the stars. The pool is small but par for the course. Breakfast choice is wide for a London hotel. Great place to stay... More
