“Great Reasonably Priced Family Hotel”
Reviewed August 27, 2007

Great hotel if you want a cheap / reasonably priced stay.

Rooms not massive, especially if you are a family of 4, but for one night it was fine. Clean and comfortable , reasonable sized bathroom, separate loo. Tea/coffee making facilities, TV etc

Breakfast reasonably priced and good - self service.

We were able to store our luggage for the day, the morning we checked out, which was a great help as we were meeting friends and didn't want to have to lug stuff around with us.

The only bad point and this is not the hotel's fault, was that the tube station - Tower Hill - was shut at weekends due to engineering work, something we didn't even think about when we booked the room. Maybe worth checking if you are planning to stay here at a weekend. Taxis from Central London ie Covent Garden, around £20. However there appeared to be buses around, but we didn't use them.

Would stay here again.

We stayed at the Novotel over the bank holiday weekend with our 2 children aged 11 and 9. I booked through Superbreak. At £97 for the night including breakfast for the 4 of us it was excellent value.
Unfortunately after letting us check in early we were not given the family room we had booked. It took a bit of time to sort this out but this was really the only glitch.
The room was clean and comfortable. The full English buffet breakfast was excellent value for the 4 of us.
The hotel is very close to Tower Hill Tube station on the circle line.
In the past we have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. I thought this was better value and in an excellent location. Will definitely stay there again if travelling with the children.

A friend and i stayed here on Friday night at the last minute after cancelling another hotel that morning. The price of £79 room only was very reasonable and the room itself was large, clean and had all the standard facilties. The staff were very accomodating (particularly after arriving back at 3.30am to realise we had left the room keys in the room). Location is brilliant for visiting the Tower and the tube station is literally a minute walk.

One tip is that there is a whetherspoons pub on the next corner where you can get breakfast and drinks much cheaper than in the hotel. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit the bar or the leisure facilities due to our concert that evening but i am sure they were of a high standard. Would definitely return.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Novotel Tower Hill. Both times for one night in London. Clean, friendly and helpful.
Rate of £89 for a double (excl Breakfast) quite reasonable.
Excellently positioned for the underground (1 min to Tower Hill).
5 Minutes walk to the Tower of London & Tower Bridge. Would thoroughly recommend - I would advise asking for a view of the tower / tower bridge if possible. Looks great at night.

We stayed at the Novotel in June. I initially didn't choose the hotel - it was by default as I was allocated one night there as a work freebie and to make more of a stay of it I chose to book an additional night.
We (my boyfriend and I) arrived at 10.30am on a Friday morning. The staff were really quick to check us in and I was surprised to find our room was ready as check-in was 2pm.
The bedroom was a good size (was a room with a sofa bed), it was also clean and had every modern convenience we needed. The bed was comfortable, the towels soft and the shower was powerful with good water temperature. We even had a seperate bathroom and toilet - something I hadn't seen in a hotel room before.
Our deal was £109.00 inc. breakfast and I booked on the internet directly with the hotel. The breakfast was a buffet style and there was plenty of choice.
The location of the hotel was great - better than I expected. There is a tube station just 2 mins walk away, the Tower of London is 2 mins walk away and just round the corner is a Wetherspoons which we found to be handy at the end of our long days.
There is the option of getting a boat from the Tower of London to the Houses of Parliment/London Eye which was only about £7.
All in all the hotel is great - I would definately stay again.

  • Liked — Good value for money, clean and comfortable
  • Disliked — Quite a way from West End for shopping and theatre, but tube is close by

we found this hotel on the internet and found the price to be great! £79 for a night which is reasonable in london, we found it well, it has a lovely welcoming foyer and pleasant staff. our room was absolutly brilliant, clean bright, spacious, the bathroom was lovely, had a bath and a seperate shower, all nice and clean in there and fluffy towells, 2 per person ! the mini bar had basic wine and beer and soft drinks, the staff were great, all willing to help and easy to understand.

the hotel is stiuated in a nice quiet (at weekends) area, and ther is bars and pubs around, it is a stones throw away from tower hill tube station, and right next to the tower, and tower bridge,

we will definatly stay here again, it was such quality and value for money, we stayed for 2 nights, we had breakfast was buffet, and i have heard people saying it was expensive at £13 but i think that is reasonable for a hotel in london really,

i would say its suitable for singles, couples and familys and business trips, we certianly saw all of the above while we were there!

Stayed here on a Saturday night in July, friendly staff, modern, clean well equipped hotel. One problem was our room wasnt ready when we checked in, but hotel locked our baggage away for us until our return. Did not get chance to use sauna etc, to busy sightseeing.
You are a good half hours walk away fron central London, but opposite the tower and tower bridge, You can walk along a deserted Fleet street to get to the centre, not many shops open in the financial area on a saturday morning. There is a Weatherspoons pub just next to the hotel, along with a tube station, so eating on a budget and getting around is no problem. Cost £20 for a taxi on the evening to get from Victoria, be aware it is just outside the main city. Car parking is easy, the hotel will direct you to an NCP park five mins away,If you arrive after 1.30pm on the Saturday its £2.00 to park for the afternoon and £2.00 all day Sunday. also the hotel is outside the congestion charge zone.
Will stay there again.
