As a rule I don't "do" contemporary. It's a personal thing. But if I had to, then this place is as good as it gets. Let's be clear: this place is spotless. Spot. Less. It's the hotel equivalent of Switzerland. Sure, keeping a brand new building in tip top condition is easier than somewhere that dates from the 17th century,... More

First went to Novotel because of the location and finding a hotel in London city center WITH a gym and a decent price can be very tricky. Very pleased that they also have a pool. Very... More

Me and my husband were supposed to stay at the Mercure London Bridge but when we arrived (at 2am) they said they had overbooked so moved us to Novotel.

Very comfortable, reasonably priced for London, convenient for business with good sized rooms, well maintained and with free internet. This hotel makes a very pleasant change from my previous recent visit to London when I stayed at the nearby Crown Plaza, or Clown Plaza as I prefer to call it.
