Reviewed yesterday NEW

Booked here at short notice, but ended up really liking it and would definitely stay again. I stayed in a premium room (apparently) and have to say that it didn't disappoint. Everything was what you would expect from a premium room, and I particularly liked the glass divider between the bedroom and the bathroom that changed from clear to frosted...

This was our second visit here and I had informed the team it was my husband's birthday. From the minute we arrived, we felt we were treated superbly. A room with a beautiful view of the Shard, balloons, a birthday card and complimentary drinks, toys for our son and high fives from all the team. The room was clean, bathroom...

From the check in to checking out this hotel provides excellent customer service. No lines to check in like the other Novotel hotels, with many thanks to Alberto and reception team. The pool is quiet and relaxing with excellent service. It is right next to the St. Paul or Westminster, close by plenty of restaurant!

I recently stayed here on two seperate occasions and the Novotel Blackfriars is one of the best Novotel brand hotels I have stayed at. It is in a great location being so close to Southwark station.

The hotel is located 2 mins from Blackfriars Station, very easy to find. A good location for visiting The Tate, St Pauls etc. The room is a good size, doesn't feel cramped. Storage space is good. Whoever thought using glass as a internal wall between bedroom and bathroom in a hotel room was an idiot. Use the bathroom at night,...

My son Tom and I had a great time here. The room was clean and comfortable. Little man lived the littlw touches like the bathroom mirror reflecting off the wardrobe mirror and the light changing wall. The staff were really polite and very helpful. Overall a very happy stay!

Arrived tired after a long flight for business. Staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. Room was an excellent standard well suited for business. Clean, spacious and well priced. The location may not be central but a short walk to the Southwark underground station got you to most places without difficulty. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great location close to tube station and south bank. Couldn't fault the hotel and staff at all. Great room great view over the he shard and lovely bathroom with a view of the shard. My only criticism is that the breakfast is not gluten free friendly. I ended up buying some gluten free bread and toasting it each morning

We stayed here on a quick overnight before catching the Eurostar. It was extremely conveniently located for public transport and the South Bank. The facilities looked great (pool, gym, spa) but we didn't have time to use them. Our family room was clean and comfortable, and the kids loved the bathroom wall, which could be switched from clear to opaque...
