If you have been to a Novotel, you will not be surprised by the general package. Rooms have a simple but modern and attractive design. Most everything is clean and functional. There are nice extras that round out the stay: free WiFi as well as public terminals, a safe in the room, a decent fitness room and sauna, reasonably-priced buffet breakfast (at least when pre-paid). The location is quite good: right next to the Tower of London and at the edge of The City, with a tube stop within a 3 minute walk. A standard room can accommodate a family of four; it was a bit tight for us but we weren't spending very much time inside.
I would be giving a rating of four but I must deduct a point for several reasons:
- the hotel was very crowded and the staff seemed inadequate to deal with all the guests at times
- as one consequence of the above our room was simply not made up one day
- the desk personnel was usually polite but standoffish
- breakfast was below the standard I am used to at Novotels (at least the ones on the Continent) although I will admit the tea was outstanding
- the rowing machine that I was pleased to see in the workout room proved to be non-functioning, evidently for lack of maintenance
Most of my complaints seem eminently fixable so I would be certainly willing to stay here again.
