Novotel London Paddington describes itself as a 'New Generation' hotel. It distinguishes itself from other hotels in its class with its close attention to style and an almost futuristic modernity. It is characterised by a glass façade, whilst the interiors look almost like something out of the set of a film set in 2020, from the supreme comforts and technologies of the bedrooms to the fitness areas which could almost trick you into thinking you're stepping into a space shuttle if it weren't for the gravity-bound water of the swimming pool.
The fitness area is rounded out by a gym and sauna, providing guests with all they need both to keep fit and to relax. Meanwhile the 11 meeting rooms provide suitable conference facilities for anything from 14 to 150 guests. Copying and printing services are also available along with a fax machine, video equipment and an overhead projector.
For dining guests have a number of options including the Elements Restaurant, which serves international cuisine with a contemporary twist, as in keeping with the rest of the hotel. The Elements bar serves a selection of lighter meals and drinks and is open until midnight, making it an ideal place to unwind after a long day of work or sightseeing. Alternatively a 24 hour room service is available with both hot and cold dishes.
Guests are also nicely situated for eating out as the Novotel London Paddington is located in the thriving Paddington area, surrounded by restaurants, bars and cafes. The district is also great for shopping and theatres, whilst the nearest tube station (Paddington) is just a 3 minute walk away and serviced by the Bakerloo, District, Circle and Hammersmith & City Lines.
Up to 2 children under the age of 16 may stay free of charge as long as they are sharing a room with their parents or guardian. This includes a free buffet breakfast.

Guests going to Victoria should then take the Circle Line to Paddington where they will be well placed to walk to the hotel. Visitors should leave Paddington via the Hammersmith & City underground exit, bearing left and following signs for Sheldon Square and Kingdom Street. Guests should then turn left at Starbucks where they will see the hotel on the other side of the Square. Alternatively taxi services are available from the city's major airports and railway stations.
Those driving to the city will find that the most direct route is to leave the M25 at Junction 16 and take the M40 and subsequently the A40 towards central London. Guests should leave the A40 before they reach Paddington station by turning right onto Westbourne Terrace and taking an immediate left onto Bishop's Bridge Road. Guests should then turn left onto Sheldon Square where they will find Kingdom Street.
