I stayed here with my wife during the Olympics. Clean hotel, modern rooms/fixtures, good location. Personally, this hotel did not meet my expectations based on what I paid for our stay. I assume that they jacked up the prices during the Olympics to take advantage of people travelling from out of town. The only unusual thing about our stay was...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about the hotel. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. You will find that the toilets are separated from the bathroom in most Novotels around the world. This is the standard design of the room, which makes it very convenient when you have two persons in a room...

I had to go to London for a few days and this hotel ticked all the boxes for me, location, quality and service, booked it through Expedia. The restaurant is really very good, very helpful desk staff and service was excellent. It was perfect for catching up with my family, and great for a meal also. The best part is...

I visited Paddington Novotel a few years ago together with my sister and parents. I liked the rooms, the service and the English breakfast. The small, but oh so nice, pool really pleased my sister and me, as we love to swim at ours. The only thing I didn't like the entrance because you are immediatly at the bar, but...

Many thanks for taking the time to review the hotel. I am pleased to read you enjoyed your stay with us and would certainly recommend to anyone staying with us to pack their swimsuit.

Last minute booking to London for business and for the difference in price between this and more budget hotels was negliable. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very helpful. Only noticable point being that none of the many staff we actually came into contact (and there were no shortage of staff) with seemed British. I dont have...

It is a Novotel, so what can you expect... The service here is generally firendly, however expect to queue for a while to get to the reception. The rooms are the same as with all Novotels (expect a view of the busy railway tracks) and are pretty quiet. I've never liked the novotel beds (extremely firm and uncomfortable), nor the...

Many thanks for taking the time to review the hotel. You are absolutely correct, as s Novotel, we are a standardised product and we offer throughout all our worldwide location the same product and service, which is very comforting when you are in an unknown location.

The great location is offset by rooms that are quite small, i.e. there is very litrtle room to put clothes. Practically no shelves. The room might be great for a one night stay, but not for several nights. We had to live out of our suitcases. Staff are friendly, but it doesn't make up for the lack of cleanliness. Even...

I have to agree with most reviews as I found this hotel location to be excellent for a London visit. The rooms were as anticipated for a London property and our laundry problems were solved by finding the Chilworth Laundrette on Chilworth street nearby which did a load of laundry for an affordable 10 pounds - drop off and pick...
