Novotel Blackfriars was a decent place to stay. A few blocks from the Thames south of the river. Pretty close walk to the river and a lot of areas. Hotel was clean. Service was good. Room was small but decent.

Reception has posted charges for early arrival and late departure. Talking with the hotel will always be best. I think they have a bag store, so plan b is to drop bags off and come back later in the day.
