I previously stayed here for a business trip to London, and liked it so much I came back with my wife and 2 kids (14 and 5) for a few nights. Wonderful. The hotel location is great for business and pleasure. It is a short walk to the tube, or a longer walk into the financial district. Perfect also for...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 August 2016

This is a great hotel in a great location. A very comfortable room. Great space, bathroom, bed - modern, light, clean and quiet. It has its own car park to the rear and if you exit this way and walk to the left you are literally in the heart of Borough Market. Its also a stone's throw from the Thames...

With my family (incl 2 teenagers) we stayed for the weekend to visit London. The welcome in the hotel was very nice and I received a good recommendation for a restaurant on the first evening. From the Novotel London City South you are literally 5 minutes away from the Tate Modern which allowed us to visit different parts of the...

We stayed at Novotel London City South for 3 night. Nice and clean rooms, with enough space for all 4. Very nice breakfast buffet to a fair price, especially when the kids are free of charge. Very accommodating staff. Located very near London Bridge underground.

The staff were very friendly and polite at check in. We had a lovely clean room and the location is right next to Borough Market and less than 5 minutes walk from London Bridge tube so it's an excellent location. The breakfast was a self service buffet with hot and cold selections and we were easily able to find several...

I keep on telling myself I should try other hotels in this part of London and there certainly is enough choice but I keep on coming back here.

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
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 neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
