The Hotel Novotel Blackfriars was a very comfortable, modern room in a great location. A short walk to the tube and great restaurants in the area. The room was very modern, with a giant walk in shower with a cool turn on/turn off glass feature that faced into the room. The Hotel certainly had a more "chic" feel than family...

Well worth upgrading to a room with a patio, great check in service able to check in online early on in the day, room ready early too. Would have liked more milk, and for an executive room complimentary water should have been included.

The location can't be beat as you are just blocks from the Thames and the Globe theatre. The rooms are small but very nice. We liked the breakfast very much! And kids up to 15 ate free which was really helpful.

Staying here for a few days has meant we are near everything in london. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are modernand bright with bluetooth wifi and loads of charging sockets so i can listen to my music when im in the room. The food at breakfast is fresh well stocked and the eating area clean.

I've stayed in three London-area Novotels this year and while all were fine, the Blackfriars one is clearly superior. The building is quite new and very well fitted with modern and quiet rooms, good air conditioning, a nice pool and gym (6AM-10PM), plus a decent buffet breakfast (from 6AM on weekdays, which is great). All of this was priced very...

Relatively new hotel only one minute walk from Southwark Underground station, hence very convenient location. Lifts at the station, so it is OK with luggage to go all the way to Heathrow (change at Green Park). Very friendly and helpful staff at reception.
