Checking in is relatively smooth. The bar is located to the right hand side of it. For a London hotel bar it is averagely priced. The rooms are modern and clean. Always go for the room on the higher floors to get a better chance of a decent view. Its a bonus in London having the pool and sauna which...

I was amazed at the quality of the facilities at this reasonably priced hotel. The bathroom is always a good indicator of quality and this one reminded me of a top class hotel I stayed in in Vietnam, shower was perfect. The pool and sauna was also very very good. Will use novotel again.

I stayed here for one night whilst en-route to a venue outside London the next day. It was important for me to have a hotel close to Waterloo Station for my early morning travels. This hotel's easy and quick access to the tube was the big driver, and I found it perfect for what I wanted. The staff were very...

This hotel is a really good option if staying on the south side. Quite spacious rooms, good beds and very nice bathrooms. Only negative is random delivery of towels, and bad pressure on the water in the shower. Excellent breakfast and a very inviting swimming pool. There is also a gym here. Nice and helpful staff. Close to "the Globe...

We just returned from a family vacation in London yesterday. We stayed at the Novotel London Blackfriar for 6 days. It was overall a fantastic stay. The room was stylish and cozy. The bed was especially noteworthy--very comfortable. Even though we were on the second floor, we all sleep soundly throughout our stay. The location could not have been better....

Both were available at this hotel and were okay, although not spectacular and hotel lacked a little soul and character, although that did give us cleanliness, efficiency and the led bathroom wall that occupies a...
