We needed a hotel near Paddington and the Heathrow Express and better than the usual tatty London hotels. The Novotel meet our requirements with modern facilities, friendly and efficient staff and close to the station. It took a little thinking about exactly where it was and the re-building of the station did not help. Go up the ramp near platform 10 toward the taxi rank and then you take a left toward the canal. There is a sign here so it gets easier. Left along the canal for a short distance and the left again. Not difficult and worth the effort. Will use again.

I needed a hotel for a Saturday night in London and the Novotel was a terrific choice. The hotel itself is modern with all the amenities that are sometimes lacking in other London hotels.
The staff were efficient and friendly. Paddington is 5 minutes away with tube lines to everywhere and, of course, the excellent Heathrow Express.
The unexpected bonus was the location. The hotel is right beside Little Venice - one of the most unexpected and beautiful parts of London. From the Novotel you can walk or bike along the canals, ride a barge to Regent's Park or Camden Lock, or dine in one of the many canal side restaurants (some on barges).

Room Tip: Try for an executive room - at the weekend mine was a cheaper rate than the regular room.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights this last july. The hotel and the area are very quiet. We found the hotel very good. Comfortable, nice modern rooms. Very good service, staff helpful. The hotel is located near the paddington station and it is easy to get everywhere.There are some good resataurants nearby for dinner and the restaurant in the hotel is good too.The price is reasonable, really value for money. We will come again.

We chose this hotel for an overnight stay as it is near Paddington Station. Looking on a map the location is near a major road and the railway lines and we expected some noise. The windows have triple glazing and we didn't hear a thing.
The hotel is located in a new office area. There is an easy walk to the station - it took us 15 minutes at an age related stroll to each the main concourse pulling two small suitcases. No roads to cross.
We did not use the restaurant or bar at the hotel so cannot comment. Would use this hotel again for an early start or late arrival at Paddington.

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 that when booked no option to include breakfast and to pay at hotel was £15 per adult. Having said that as an basic loyalty card holder got about 30% off rate so good value never the less. Will definately stay again.

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 the order because the order taker spoke heavily accented English, and we are from New Zealand, so our accent was probably not the easiest for her!!!! However, the food arrived promptly and was tasty.
Our room overlooked the small garden and railway lines and busy road at the back of the hotel- if there was any noise it didn't disturb us on either night. The bed was roomy and comfortable.
My only negative comment would be about the tiny bathroom- it looks very well designed and clean, but the tile floor gets wet very quickly just from opening the shower door. There are rails to hang the towels, but despite the hotel's plea to save the planet and use your towels more than once , they don't dry well in such a small space.( the towels were changed daily without a problem)
However that's all small beer really, because we thought this was a value for money London hotel with refreshingly good service and staff who did want to answer your questions. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
