"I've been pleased with how they've integrated," said Pardew. "I had concerns because when you're bringing in foreign players, there's time for settling in.
"But I believe the North East is much easier to settle into. It's a warm place, even for myself, and I know I wasn't particularly loved when I came here.
"I can think of players at London clubs. It's much more difficult there."
Pardew's Newcastle remain unbeaten in the league after yesterday's 3-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers at St James' Park.
