I chose the Novotel having stayed at their Bangkok Airport location many years ago and having had a wonderfully comfortable experience there. The Blackfriars location was perfect for the three nights I was intending on exploring London (including taking the Making of Harry Potter studio tour from Victoria, taking a bus tour of London, and attending a TV preview at...

The hotel was clean but that would be the only plus.. The so call pool area is ok but misleading in that you would think it had a hot tub but it was just an extension of the pool and not heated and it seemed that the pool was always chemically unbalanced (too much chlorine). The glass partition in the... More

We are staying here now. This hotel is brand new, very modern, cleanliness is 100%. The closest tube station is Southwark. We caught the Tube from Heathrow cost us about £3-4. The hotel is not even a 5 minute walk from the station. Turn left when you come out of the station. The Cut is across the road from the... More

This is, quite simply, a GREAT hotel. We stayed here for three nights after a three week, three country trip around Europe. I thought the price was a bit high, but I cannot say enough how worth it it was! First, the location is a half-block from the Southwerk Tube stop, so accessing the rest of London is easy. If...

Really enjoyed our stay. Three nights cost us £565 so not cheap but you do get superb service for what you pay for. Spa and gym excellent. Mixed cardio equipment and upper body weights machine. May I recommend a leg press machine? This addition would make it the perfect little gym. The spa and pool is extremely clean. Personal annoyance... More

I had a really lovely stay here with only one tiny complaint. I upgraded to an executive suite, which was lovely,....but the view was towards some flats and tennis courts. The suite was lovely but I wish I hadn't upgraded, a view of the Shard would have been preferable. The staff were great, breakfast was great, just the view!

We stayed at the Novotel because we had ACCOR points to use. However we were very pleased with the location - one minute from the closest tube and 30 seconds from a bus stop that took us to Kings Cross. In addition, there is a Tesco conveniently located nearby where you can buy food and other goods. Breakfast was fantastic.... More

Very clean and excellent hotel. Strategically placed and close to most of the best attractions in London. I stayed for almost 2 weeks in the hotel for my work and found it to be really nice. Would definitely recommend it to people who travel to London.
