Stayed for 2 nights on a B&B basis. This is an excellent hotel ideally located just behind Paddington railway station.

Stayed for a week on business. Was in one of the executive rooms - although it did not look particularly executive to me. Rates were within budget. Room service options were limited but fine. Service was mostly fine. Location was good in terms of being close to underground, heathrow express, food and the office. Would have been good to see...

The word romantic never came to mind during my visits here... But this hotel is a brand new building which has nice facilities, a small but rather good training room, pool and sauna and a nice breakfast buffet. The standard rooms are smallish but well planned and the location is great, very close to the Paddington (LHR express) station. The...

So I need to stay close to this location for work regularly. I have given up on the far more expensive Hilton at Paddington station for this hotel. Staff couldn't be more helpful and the breakfast is very good. There is a quick way along the canal that gets you to the Heathrow express in less than 5 minutes. There...

I have stayed in most of the Novotels in London, but my recent stay at the Novotel Paddington was my first time there. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. The rooms were the usual clean and sleek ones you expect from this chain; the double glazing ensured they were very quiet. The staff I encountered (mainly...

Many thanks for taking the time to review the hotel and for the great feedback provided. We are indeed at the back of Paddington Station and it's true that with the crossrail works around the station, Paddington is a bit of a tricky area to navigate in. The easiest to find us is from inside the station to follow along...

The hotel is pretty close to the Paddington railway station. That's what the map says, and it's also true --- given you know exactly how to get there from the station. Perhaps I underestimated the problem and came utterly unprepared, but it took me more than 45' with my rolling suitcase to find the hotel. I got stuck in a...

Recently stayed at Novotel Paddington for business. Property is a good choice when visiting London. Very safe and convenient location within a 5 minute walk from Paddington Station.
