I was attending a corporate dinner in near by Notting Hill and as this hotel was close to the office, I plumped for it. The impression is that it's like most other Novotels I have been to across Europe: modern, clean and well equipped. I was put in an "executive room".
The room was big enough with a decent bathroom and all the facilities necessary. There was a desk that could be used for a reasonable amount of work. The decor and so on were inoffensive without actually being bland. The toiletries in the bathroom included a wide range of items and a fluffy robe wit slippers.
Th bed was delightful. Comfortable and big enough for two.. Despite being located where it is (between a main railway line and a busy road) it was perfectly quiet. Breakfast was delicious and well worth staying for.
What is best about this hotel is the location. From arriving on the Heathrow Express at Paddington to reception is a ten minute walk. From the Heathorw Express platforms, go up the stairs and follow the signs to the Hammersmith and City line station. Exit from this underground station, turn left and walk by the canal. Turn left again at Starbucks, follow the path round the amphitheatre and there is Kingdom Street - the Novotel is at the end.
The hotel is also only a 15 minute walk away from Hyde Park or Westbourne Park/Notting Hill. Using the newly refurbished Underground station means you can reach The City in 20 minutes.
It is, however, not cheap. I was traveling on expenses so I'm immune to price, but what I paid would be quite a lot if I was paying my own way. It's not bad value for London but it's still dear.
All in all a good hotel.
