Very helpful and pleasant staff. Room 416 quite noisy with outside motor humming and room fridge humming so not much sleep there, don't really need a fridge for 3 tiny milk cartons!. Room very clean and spacious though, hotel corridors quiet. breakfast was good lots of choice. The further annoying aspect was the pool which is why we booked there....

I couldn't have been happier with this hotel. We arrived and were instantly greeted with a smile. Our two year old was tired from the journey and the lady behind the desk was fantastic with her giving her a few toys to help enjoy our stay. Our room wasn't ready so ended up waiting ten minutes which we didn't mind...

Review is based on the highest tier of membership with the Accor Group. Check-in: - Absolutely appalled with the Check-in experience. - Only 2 counters/desks - No anticipation of Platinum members. Did not bother to ensure the room is ready. As if you are telling me that there are NO ONE at all that check-out early? Even when I come...

Ideal base for south bank exploration. Easy walk over from Blackfriars tube or Southwark tube. Close to Globe and Tate modern but reasonably set back from the hubbub. Swimming pool is a plus (with underwater music and undersea projection which was fun) but its not huge so be prepared for something like taking a bath with strangers... Typical novotel offering...

Stayed for 3 days whilst exploring London and the hotel was great. Rooms were clean and plenty of space for 3 people.
