This hotel is a short walk away from Paddington station and though a business area with restaurants and convenience shops/stores in case you need to pick up a few extra bits. The room was fairly large and clean and quiet. The view wasnt spectacular (over a the railway line and partial construction) but that didnt bother us. We had breakfast... More

This hotel is great for easy access to Heathrow. Stayed here with kids for one night after flying in from overseas; it is a short, easy walk from Paddington station (look for Grand Union canal exit, follow canal to Paddington Central office complex). Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms were a good, Novotel standard. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast... More

A fantastic hotel. Excellent rooms, and well located next to Paddington Basin and station. If upon arrival a member of staff tries to check you in with an ipad, politely decline and head to one of the reception desks instead. You'll save yourself 10mins of standing awkwardly in the lobby whilst there is lots of tapping on the ipad to... More

It is a very nice hotel situated in the Paddington district. Not so far from London Heathrow Airport, and not so far from the center of London. It is a very good choice for people who do the Business&Pleasure travels :)

Nice staff, good bar but.... Location is in middle of nowhere and everything seems far. More importantly, room are overused and need to be renovated.
