We took the Underground from Heathrow, and it was about a 20 minute walk rolling our luggage up some hills to the hotel. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. We paid ahead for breakfast, and slept through it the first morning due to jet lag. Upon check out, I asked for a refund and was told it could not... More

Located just a short walk from the tube and easily accessible. I've stayed in London many times and have to say the room was up there with the very best of them, especially for the price. The hotel is very family friendly so do expect kids running about round reception.

I stayed at the Novotel London Paddington a long week end with my 2 daughters (age 7 and 9). The hotel is about 5 mins walk from Paddington station so it's very convenient for both Heathrow Express and local transport. Our room was on the largish side (for London anyway), with a king size bed and a sofa bed. Pretty... More

We arrived into Heathrow after a 24 hour flight and caught the Heathrow Express into Paddington. From there it was just a 10 minute walk along the canal to the hotel. Yes there were some cobblestones (quaint) which made wheeling the suitcases more difficult but that's a very minor quibble. Despite arriving at the hotel well before check-in time we... More

The location was perfect. Paddington Station is about 15 minutes from Heathrow Airport via the excellent Heathrow Express; the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the station (tip: walk via the canal – it’s a little quicker and more pleasant than along the main road). Paddington Central - where the hotel is situated - was part of a... More

First time here for me - one night stop with late night and early start. Very helpful and courteous staff, large well-stocked bar, comfortable room with separate loo room (French preoccupation I think ..). Literally 10 minutes from hotel room to Platform 9. Good breakfast in room, delivered on time. Very happy customer

We found this hotel very user unfriendly. Everything was bolted down, the iron, the hair dryer, the fridge was empty. The shower was raised and slippery to get out of. I have an artificial knee and felt very unsafe. The staff were helpful but seriously did not enjoy staying here.

I lived here for 2 nights with two of my friends the first days in July. I'm sorry to say that I will not recommend this hotel. On the downside - the room has a small compartment for the toilet and an other for shower and sink. The compartment with the toilet has no sink and to wash your hands... More

I'm a pretty frequent and hard-to please traveler; so when I came across this gem - i had to give them this review. Firstly, the location of this hotel is perfect, off the Heathrow Express and you are there with a 10 mins walk from Paddington Station. Traveling within London? No problem - the Tubes are at Paddington as well.... More
