This is a modern and basic hotel, located close to Paddington Station with restaurants and coffee shops close by. Its good value if you can get a room for under 140GBP but this is one of those hotels that charges for everything. The wi-fi costs 15 GBP/night (that's $25) which is overpriced, especially when it doesn't actually work. As a...

Nothing bad to say really. Clean, pleasant, good location, good services, Mac computers in lobby, staff extremely helpful with printing boarding cards and a very long etc, etc. Not exactly a romantic setting, slightly antiseptic, but pretty much par for the course with business hotels.

We were there on holiday from Australia. The hotel was very centrally located to Paddington Station. Considering that, it was very quiet. The room was very clean and modern. The only drawback was the size of the room. It was a basic double but it was very small. It was a very expensive hotel at 204GBP per night so was...

Stayed here for 1 night end of october in executive room with queen bed and sofa,found the room and service excellent. Close to paddington tube station which was an advantage. Would stay here again without hesitation although a bit pricey at £240 a night.

we have stayed at the Novotel Paddington several times over the past few years and without exception have found it an excellent choice. The whole hotel and garden area is kept spotlessly clean, the staff without exception have been friendly, courteous and efficient, the breakfast is more than adequate and the hotel's location could not be better for getting anywhere...

Our party of four adults booked the Novotel for a one-day stopover in mid-September. We didn't really have any expectations other than a clean hotel in a central location. I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. We arrived late afternoon a bit bedraggled (after a channel crossing and walk with baggage from Paddington Station) to find the lobby...

The people in the reception charged us for a no-show (£209) even though we all showed up (apparently too difficult to handle two reservations). They also tried to charge us for an extra breakfast three days in a row for a double room where one person stayed alone. When confronted with all of this, we were met with arrogance and...

This is my second stay here. There is a renovation around the Paddington station. This made my way to the hotel difficult as we had two big luggages. Otherwise, the facility is good. I have used the fitness centre. The size is small but quite comprehensive. Breakfast is good with adequate varieties. Room is clean. Shower is a bit weak.
