In fact it is very close to the Tate Modern, the Millenium Bridge and much more in London. Bedroom was ok, even though bed sheet could be softer. I used the fitness suite and is OK for a hotel. Staff were generally nice. Too bad we made a reservation through Hotels.com and for that we could not use Accor reward... More

We had a nice stay in a good sized room. The location was a bit on the business/commercial side but it was easy to get cabs to hop around town. The kids were not fans of the room service limited menu late night! I liked the exercise room quite a bit - it was like a smaller version of a... More

Novotel London City South Hotel deserves 10 stars! Its location is just around the corner from Boroughs Market, the London Bridge, London Tower, the underground metro and lots of pubs and fancy restaurants. The staff is so friendly; every morning, Eric helped us plan our sightseeing and mapped our routes and when we returned in the evening he suggested yummy... More

Definitely recommend this hotel! The rooms are to a very high standard. The food in the evening is brilliant. The bar in the evening is very quiet and peaceful, ideal to have a relaxing drink. Considering, there is an ibis hotel next door averaging £20 a night cheaper, this is the much better hotel and i'd happily pay the extra... More

Stayed here for two nights with family in 2 rooms on the 3rd floor. Everything was perfect, cannot fault a thing. The beds were ridiculously comfortable which was great after having stayed the previous 2 weeks in what I'm sure we're concrete beds. The pillows, bedding and mattresses were fantastic. Great bathroom with excellent water pressure. The amenities in the... More

We stayed at Waterloo location earlier but this hotel and location by far was the best.. It is near the Metro station, walking distance to a daily market that has all the local foods. Walking distance to the London tower

Came here with the family with 2 girls. Staff in the evening and at breakfast time. Our room was very clean and had all the items we need. But one item I feel they need to look at, the Bose docking Apple unit. This has old connections so anyone with anything above iPhone 4S won't be able to use it.... More

Location is slightly out of the way - maybe a 10 minute walk from the nearest tube stations (London Bridge, Southwark or Mansion House) but also relatively quiet. As usual with Novotel, the ambience is geared more towards function than comfort, with a particularly spartan entrance foyer. Rooms, however, are the latest Novotel style, which is a little more luxurious... More

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.
