We stayed here as friend we were traveling with was on a budget. Rooms have very little drawer space so it is impossible to unpack. Getting taxi at door is difficult due to security barriers - there is no queue. If you order taxi there is extra charge. It is adjacent to Paddington Station so underground transport is available. Location is definitely out of the way which explains the reasonable price.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I am sorry to read you found our hotel out of the way. We are located only a short walk from Paddington station and Little Venice.

With regards to taxis, there is the possibility to hail one from the main road or we can make a booing for you, which carries an extra costs added by the cab company automatically.

I look forward to welcoming you again soon,

Kind regards,

We chose this hotel because the reviews were excellent. We stayed in the hotel, and were pleased to discover that the reviews were right. On arrival, the receptionist Mariola showed us to our room. We noted that it had no bathtub in the bathroom, so she quickly (and cheaply) upgraded us and took us to our new room, with bathtub. We then noticed that there was not enough cupboard space for our family of three (we came for a whole week). So, she patiently showed us a larger suite, and was able to upgrade us for a very reasonable price. She must have spent about an hour dealing our room selection.
The rest of the stay, service was great, from everyone. We highly recommend the hotel.

This hotel is suitably located near the Paddington Station and Paddington Central. The rooms are clean and the hotel is equipped with sauna, swimming pool and gym (free of charge).
Breakfast is offered with a lot of varieties and worth to pay for.
The disadvantage is only the car park is quite far, located outside the Paddington Central and charged at fairly on a high side.

Many thanks for your review and for pointing out the quality of the hotel and in particular of our breakfast.

It's true we do not have parking facilities and are reliant on public car parks which in London are usually quite expensive.

With the good connection of the hotel to the tube and the close proximity of Paddington, King's Cross and Marylebone stations, I would recommend to anyone to come by public transport as it would be easy and economical compared to the APCOA car park on Bishops Bridge Road (closest one to the hotel).

I look forward to welcoming you again soon,

Kind regards,

I was in this hotel for four days. Thanks to other members of Tripadvisor I chose this hotel. Service of the reception was good and promt. Man at the desk of breakfast room was very helpfull and always friendly. Cleaning of the room was really good work everyday, thank you.
The room itself was spcier than I expected. View to railways, but did not bother me at all as I was aware of that in advance. Double windows made it soundproof. Bed was comfy and television was in good size.

What I always value most is deacentx breakfast. It really makes me into bad mood If I dont't get good breakfast in the mornings. No worry of that in this hotel. Lots of things to choose from. Fruits, jogourts, nice breads, croissants, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, pancakes...

To cut the long story short, I would come back to this hotel.

This is a fairly typical modern hotel - a bit characterless but comfortable. There is a smallish pool, which was quiet when we visited though could get crowded. There is also a gym, sauna, and steam room. The men's changing rooms has 6 lockers so you get the impression they're not expecting to get very busy. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choice.

Other reviews seem to think the access to public transport is good, but I have reservations about that. However, if you're happy to travel everywhere by taxi, you can stop reading now....

There is an entrance to the tube station about 5 mins walk away, at the northern end of Paddington station, but there is another entrance at the southern end which is more than 10 mins away, and when we caught a circle line tube, that's where we came out. At the end of a busy day, a 15 minute walk back to the hotel isn't great.

Paddington station is about 10 minutes walk away.

There are bus stops on Bishop's Bridge Road, near the junction with Gloucester Terrace, which are about 8 minutes away. When some building work at Paddington is finished (due to complete in 2013), buses will run along Eastbourne Terrace and the bus stops will be closer.

For comparison: I previously stayed at the Euston Novotel, which is 4 mins walk from Kings Cross (tube and main line), and has bus stops within a few metres. But no pool!

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor, overlooking the railway line. The windows had three layers of glass, so t...

Thank you for your review of the hotel.

Location and access can be challenging the first time you stay withus, however if you exit Paddington station through the Hammersmith and City Line tube station entrance, you are only a short walk to the hotel, following the canal.

I hope you will choose to stay with us again and when doing so, please visit the novotel website to benefit from the best rate guarantee.

I look forward to welcoming you again soon,

Kind regards,
