Fabulous 8.8 From 918 reviews

Novotel London City South
Great location, room clean and lovely bathroom. However the room was so hot. The air conditioner/cooler didn’t work so spent the night in an oven. I know i could have phoned reception but it was late by the time we got to the room and I was too tired to move. As a result had a very sleepless night.

Nice hotel
Very nice area. Lots to do. Hotel good and breakfast varied and plentiful. Just far too hot in the rooms.

The place to stay near the Shard
The hotel was undergoing renovation, but this did not have a negative impact on my stay. The staff was friendly, but some situations should have been handled smoother. Restaurant is acceptable, but boring. Great neighborhood.

Fabulous room and very friendly staff

Novotel London City South
Great room - unconventional design
Stayed in a room on the 6th floor. These have a somewhat unconventional design that may not be to everyone's taste, with the basin in the main room next to the bed. There are two mirrored doors leading to the toilet and walk-in shower (excellent). The space in the room is well used and the bed is very comfortable. My only criticism is the section of the wardrobe for hanging clothes is a little too small.
