I'm not sure what the word Novotel conjures up, but I did find this particular hotel to be cool in design; spacious and well lit and excellently located. The best thing about this hotel is the bedrooms, well-lit and warm colours. The breakfast/dining room is ok. Has a feeling of canteen about it and the breakfast is very expensive £16... More

Nice weekend away place in the Southwark neighborhood. Good location for attractions in that area. It's a great, off the beaten path place. You're a little bit away from the traditional London attractions, but are in a great place for real culture and non-traditional sights. We enjoyed the Golden Hind for the kids. Great place to stay to get away... More

Love the location - walking distance to St Paul’s Cathedral, London Bridge, the monument and the Tate Modern. Three tube stations all close by (London Bridge, Borough & Southwark). Nice walk around south bank with a few good restaurants available; there is also a Mark & Spencer if you need any daily stuff such as toothpaste. Nearby Borough Market is... More

I stayed here for three nights after four nights at the Apex City of London. Not exactly a fair comparison, as Apex is a bit more expensive, but that's what colored my lenses. Let's start with the good and move down... Five stars: natural lighting. Huge windows to the London city sky (grey as it is). In-room lighting at night... More

I stayed here for one night making use of the fitness room and steam room. The room was clean with modern fittings. There was free Wi-Fi, a nice chaise longue and a comfy bed. There were some attractive features like the espresso coffee machine and electric privacy glass between the bathroom and bedroom. All in all a comfortable stay.

We love staying near Borough Market and this hotel is a great location. Only a couple blocks from the nearest Tube station, and there's great pubs all around it. London is a very walkable city, and this location is a great base camp.

Very clean, modern hotel. Breakfast was very good. Nice location, minutes from the Thames. Will stay here again or another London novotel. We did not eat here but used the bar one night. Staff were friendly. There's a stop outside the hotel for hop on/off bus tour.

Went to the Floatworks on Thrale street around the corner from the hotel - so for me, location was great. I have stayed here before but it was a long time ago. Got one of the newer rooms this time with the "frosted glass feature" in the bathroom. Very clean, well prepared when we got there. Room didn't have a... More
