Excellent location, near Paddington station, 2 km to Regent park, 1 Km to Hyde park and Oxford street. The hotel confirmation’s email has directions for the shortest way from the station to the hotel, but you still need attention and observance to find it. Specious, clean room, excellent breakfast, very friendly staff

One of the better Novotels - quite well located, calm, clean, almost new and well run and decorated with very good taste. Nothing to say about the rooms - If you’ve been to a Novotel, you know how they look like. Service is acceptable with some flaws, but that's understandable as they employ plenty of trainees. This hotel is a... More

I stayed here for one night before a conference I had at the start of August. The hotel is firstly not the easiest to find - there is a pathway along the canal from Paddington station but I wouldn't want to take that at night and otherwise I didn't find the journey very easy. Once you get to the hotel... More

A great modern hotel that is particularly well located for access via the heathrow express to the airport. The staff are great and the amenities are of a great standard. Comfortable well appointed rooms. And surprisingly quiet location given the central spot of paddington.

This Novotel is just off Sheldon Square, at the back of Paddington Station, and by the start of the Little Venice canals. The Square is closed off to traffic (apart from taxis who have to come through a barrier), is ultra modern with high rise offices, a few shops, and some restaurants by the canal - so the area manages...

This is a very nice hotel situated close to the rail connection to Heathrow Airport. A short 500mtrs walk gets you to the station.
