The hotel is a bit worn out. Yet the staffs there are nice. Tried the buffet lunch with dismay on the range and quality of food. I lived in a suite and the remote control of TV inside the room commanded the TV in living room at the same time. Always accidentally switched on both TVs.
Like the name, the hotel too is lovely in a prime place with great access to places around but unfortunately the restaurants inside the property is limited to just one and yet they claim a 4 star classification. Do not know how they got it as for a 4 star property the requirements are plenty to be fulfilled.
My stay though went good and the hotel staff were all very courteous and kind all the way. The language barrier was solved to a great extent by some good advises and tips from the front desk.
This my second stay at novotel watergate. The hotel was good. Room quite big, price oke. The best things is food for breakfast. So many choice as you like. I feel it is better than other novotel hotels. Location oke, free wifi. The biggest problem for me was reception could not speak english.
