My husband and I stayed here with our teenage son for a mini weekend break and I have to say it was very good value for money. The hotel is about a ten minute walk from the tube, we took the underground to Oxford Circus and arrived ten minutes later and quickly submerged in the hustle and bustle of Oxford...

This was a return trip to this hotel. Location is great, especially now the new paddington tube station has opened for the hammersmith line, it's a very easy quick walk. The staff on check in were excellent, we arrived early off a long haul flight and were checked in promptly and a twin room request not originally booked accomodated for....

Stayed here for a night at the end of a business trip to London - did not spend much time in the hotel itself but was impressed with what I experienced. First of all the location was fantastic - within a 10-min walk (not advisable with heavy luggage or bad weather) from Paddington train station where the subway takes one...

Great attentive staff but this hotel is a rip off. Very no frills - the rooms are more like a Formula 1 than a £200 a night hotel. Breakfasts are good but the public areas are going to date very fast if they have not already. Room service very average but again poor value for money. Real shame as the...

Dear Reviewer, Many thanks for taking the time to post a review about the hotel. I am terribly sorry to read you did not feel the room experience was justifying the price charged. We are operating a branded standardised hotel which comes with a standard bedroom product where prices are in line with other 4* hotels in London. I hope...

Plus points: Great location, modern and clean, good price for a central London hotel. Downside: Very uncomfortable bed with old fashioned springs in the mattress; Might just have been my bad luck but it cost them a star in this review.

I stayed here one night with my wife and our 4 year old. It's more expensive compared to other Novotel locations but for London it's an excellent deal and you get what you promised: It's a typical Novotel layout - room could be in 50 other Novotel locations. Clean - excellent service - free WiFi. Breakfast buffet average compared to...

Excellent location, near tube, paddington train station. Great staff helpful. Clean, good breakfast. Wifi for free everywhere, in room as well. Computers in Lobby. Great experience. Value for money, it's London, compare to what I'm used to it is expensive but overall was worth it!!

If you pay £100 max inc breakfast for a night I think you will be happy for having chosen Novotel. In our case we paid 130 quid inc breakfast + £10 for wifi and at that price I do not think it was good deal. I would have preferred to stay at some of the London hotels I have stayed...

Many thanks for your review. I was sorry to read that you encountered difficulties with the sauna.
