Same excellent experience as I expected by Novotel: tidy room, fresh, furnished with taste and modern. No single thing was worn out. Breakfast with a nice choice of stuff (bear in mind this is London so the food in the start can't be like in Tuscany!). Had a non-street room - very quiet, views in direction of the Shard. Kind...

This hotel was simply wonderful. Great location for The Menier and the Southwark Playhouse. Staff at breakfast were very helpful and the pancake machine was amazing. Only downside was that the menu for room service after midnight was very limited

I have stayed in a number of hotels in this area, as it is close to my office. Several new hotels have been built, and competition is now high. On this occasion, as other (cheaper) hotels were busy, I chose the Novotel as I had not stayed their for a while. I was upgraded on arrival, which was a bonus.... More

We went to London to visit the Shard and this hotel was in the perfect spot, only a ten minute walk away. The room was clean and modern with a fun bathroom window extra. Unfortunately the hotel was going through a refurb during our stay so as we had a leisurely morning in bed, someone was drilling in the room... More

I did feel welcome and everything well organised in advance. All the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was also very satisfied and we had very good experience with the hotel. If I visit London, I love to book this hotel again.

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
