Gym TVs did not have remote control, staff member walked in and when I asked, was told TVs don't work. No apology nothing. Asked to shred some documents and as they have no business office they wouldn't let me use their shredder. My colleague stayed in same hotel and the TV didn't work, their was a leak in the bathroom... More

Our second time at the Novotel London City South and even better then the last time. The reception upgraded us to a suite for the night which was situated on the corner of the Hotel with double aspect windows (soundproofed fortunately). Apart from the Comfortable Bedroom, the suite comprised of a Lounge and dining area, a large Bathroom with separate... More

I'd recommend this hotel purely for its location - access to the tube network is superb and it's just a 5 minute walk from the river and Bankside pier. There is so much to do in the vicinity with the rest of London so easy to get to. The staff here couldn't be more helpful. You can fit a family... More

I have spent several nights here on business trips. The rooms are decent sized, with nice beds and a very nice shower or bath. The restaurant serves a full breakfast buffet, where you have a choice of either continental style or you can assemble a full English breakfast (minus the black pudding, but I don't like that anyway)

I stayed in the Novotel for two nights on a business trip to London in July. It's a tough time to find a reasonable room for a less than astronomical price in London at the best of times, but especially while Wimbledon and the Grand Prix are on. The Novotel was well priced and I had a very good sized... More

This hotel is well located particularly for business people, although on a noisy busy street. Like most Novotel hotels it is fairly modern, clean but with little atmosphere. Service/staff is very good except at the bar. Rooms are comfortable (except that windows are not terribly well sound proofed), particularly bathroom is nice with good shower. Excellent breakfast buffet.

Having a formal dinner to attend, and not having a reliable train service at all south of London, I planned an overnight stop. Excellent room - quiet despite being on a main road. Good furnishings, clean, equipped with a good shower. Breakfast was excellent with a good selection of items on the buffet.

I have stayed at many Novotels in Australia and my first experience in the UK was disappointing. As a Laccor member, the service standards and room quality didn't quite match my previous expectations. The photo of the room didn't follow the layout we had on arrival. We had our family of four with two teenagers in a very warm room... More

Lighting in room just a little harsh, but otherwise a well appointed and comfortable room. Seperate WC room and both bath and shower cubicle provided. Comfortable bed, air conditioning, just a little traffic noise but nothing too disturbing. Desk area with power points and tea/coffee making supplied.

The hotel is located around a 10-minute walk from London Bridge tube station and around 5 from Shakespeare’s Globe. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room we had was nice and big and clean. I particularly liked the blu-tooth speaker that was available and the fact it had a nice amount of plug sockets. The bathroom had a nice... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
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.
