“Still a good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

Haven't stayed here for about 6 years and it's starting to show it's age a little. Staff were as friendly as ever and really helpful at times. Easy walk to Borough Market ( try Feng Sushi) and £17 in a black cab to The West End. I still think £15 for hotel wired Internet or £9 for slow Orange wifi is a rip off and self parking will cost you £25 per day. I prefer the Tower Doubletree just across the bridge.

Good London hotel, convenient walking distance to many sites. Expensive for what it was.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2012 via mobile

This Novotel is on Southwark Bridge Road, close to Borough Market, and a short walk (10 min) from stations at London Bridge, Southwark or Blackfriars. There is also a bus service to Waterloo and Covent Garden (RV1).  Also easy walking distance to the Tate Modern, St Paul's, Tower Bridge, and the rest of the City of London.  The rooms are clean and comfortable and are a reasonable size. Nice bathroom and separate WC. Coffee and tea-making facilities in room. Not too noisy as I was able to keep windows open all night.   Breakfast is served until late at weekends (11.30) and late check-out is available on Sundays. Check- in was a bit slow and the corridors are a bit gloomy. A good choice for tourists.
