We have recently returned from a two night stay in the Novotel London Tower Bridge.
The hotel was in an excellent location just a stones throw from Tower Hill tube station and The London Tower.We had a room with a double bed and a twin bed setee,with the bed setee pulled out the room was rather small for a family of four however was spotlessly clean.Maid service prompt and the full english breakfast buffet style was excellent.
The staff were very friendly and helpfull and the children particularly enjoyed the childs play area although small had a playstation and a letter board for the younger ones.
Our only criticism was the heat, the bedroom was exceptionally hot and despite the air conditioning on full did not appear to make much difference to the temperature.They had ice machines located on each floor which was needed to keep us hydrated!!!
We ate in the restaurant for convenience as we had two children with us.The restaurant although with a limited menu was pleasant and the food of good quality.
We would definately stay again the location was very convenient for the tube the river and the buses, overall a pleasant stay.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Novotel London Tower Bridge Hotel

Good Family Hotel

from Akba
First and most important, a very short walk from the the Tower Hill subway stop (couple of minutes, this is important in London if you are with kids and luggage). And if you are taking the Stansted Express into Liverpool Street Station the Tower Hill stop is only 2 stops away. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and very nice and clean. The breakfast buffet which you should get in advance with the room rate is excellent and the service is outstanding. You can literally throw a rock at the Tower of London it is so close, and as I stated before the Tower Hill subway stop is minutes away and can get you anywhere in cental London very quickly. The rooms are soundproof and have cable TV and have a playstation that costs 2 pounds per day. This is a great bargain for London especially for families. Look no further this is an ideal hotel. Remember for the subway get a adult travel pass and kids ride with you for 1 pound per day. The fastest and cheapest way around by far.

Great Find!

from beewax
We have just returned from a weekend away at the Novotel Tower Bridge. This hotel is a little bit out of the main tourist areas (Covent Garden,Leciester Square) however they are eaily accesible by the Tower Hill tube station which is literally a 2 mins walk away.
I called up a week before we went to ask for an upgrade, they don't actually do upgrades but they put us in one of the best rooms 641-would definitley recomend this room as it has a fabulous view on the Tower of London and London Bridge!.

From staying at other hotels round London I found this one of my favourites-this should be rated a 4* not a 3* hotel.

Great find!

Great location - reasonable price

from A TripAdvisor Member
We originally booked only 2 nights but upon arrival found the hotel to be more than expected. The location is ideal. Close to tube (opposite london tower). It was away from the hectic centre of town though which made it more appealing. After 2 nights we spoke with reception to extend our stay however they could only offer us a rate which was almost double the internet booking rate. We accessed the net and booked online for a further 3 nights at the discounted rate.
Rooms were clan and well suited to our requirments (young couple).
We would suggest travelling via tube to other areas to dine out as options are limited in the area of the hotel.
Hotel breakfast was good and reception staff friendly.

Great for weekends

from RobFindlater
4 of us stayed there in 3 rooms on the night of Saturday 9th July as we were in London for a party. I agree with other reviewers that the 2 - 4 rooms would be a bit tight for 4 people, but for 2 they were great.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and the place was really quiet.
Check-in was swift and as I'd requested we had been allocated 3 rooms on the top floor -(its quieter on the higher floors). Rooms were very modern, functional, clean and of minimalist design.
The beds were comfortable - without being too soft - and all services worked without a hitch - (shower, tv, tea & coffee making facilities).

As a lot of people have already stated, the location is excellent. Most tourist attractions are only a short walk / tube / bus / cab ride away, and personally I was far happier staying in a very quiet part of town and travelling to somewhere with more action than staying in the busy West End.

The breakfast in the morning was excellent. I've read another review where some of the food ran out by 9:30am, but we didn't experience this and all the food and drinks we had were great and in good supply.

Checking out was as straightforward as checking in and as we had been advised by the hotel we were parked in an NCP car park about 500 yards away in the Minories. We were heading out of London by 11am on the Sunday and the overnight parking only cost us £2 which I thought was amazing value.

Overall I'd say if you want a cheap no nonsense hotel accommodation package in and around the City of London, the Novotel Tower Bridge is an excellent choice. Definately book ahead of your visit though as we paid £52.50 per person including breakfast per night - which I thought was great value in Central London, but the prices you are charged walking in off the street as listed as over 3 times as much.

I'd definately be happy to stay there again at the weekend.

Excellent hotel, highly recommended

from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked this hotel having nearly stayed in a real shocker of a hotel elswhere in London which, thankfully, I saw a review of the day before I arrived! Got a great deal via the web and it lived up to the reviews, excellent service, great view of Tower of London, nice quiet location. Staff were helpful and pleasant and the rooms were clean, cool (it was a VERY hot weekend) and spacious.

Would stay here again! Will use tripadvisor again too if I book any hotel, great service, wished I'd known about before now avoid those hotel shockers!

Bit of a let down!

from Cash_tree
The hotel was booked for one Sunday night to enable myself, my wife and 6 year old son to spend a bank holiday in London. The hotel is well positioned within seconds walk of Fenchurch St. station, Tower Hill tube and Tower Gateway DLR. The hotel is smart looking, clean and welcoming. The general running of the hotel however left something to be desired. The room had only one towel and we had to order more. The evening buffet meal was just short of £20 each for three courses - adequate but felt a bit like a captive audience as there is no where else nearby to go. (local Pizza Express closed !!) My son was offered a £5 version of the adult buffet or a kids menu. The buffet breakfast £12 for full English, £9 for continental came recommended by other reviews on this site - so we were hopeful of a hearty breakfast. Appearing in the dining room at 9.30 we were shown to a table, only to have it hijacked by another group whilst we looked over the buffet. Having decided the full english looked good, we enquired as to some more sausages only to be told they didn't have any left. (Breakfast is supposed to run until 10.30!) I opted for a continental as I wasn't going to pay full price for half a breakfast. I ended up with two bowls of cereal and a cold croissant for my £9 Hmmm ! Wife opted for continental also, had to ask for a bowl - a spoon and some milk - then had to ask for some bread to make toast. There were lots of staff about, all of whom looked busy, but there appeared to be no sense to the chaos that surrounded what ended up to be a stressful breakfast and a poor start to our day in London.

superb location

from KenRoss
absolutely 1st class location, just across the road from Tower Bridge and only a few metres from Tower Hill tube station.
Rooms are nicely sized, but a bit of a squeeze if you have a family room with four. For two there is plenty of space.
All staff were courteous and polite.
Breakfast was very good.
Weekend package breaks are superb value and are worth seeking out.
Would recommend to anyone travelling to London for the mix of value, facilites, service and location.

Brilliant Location, Brilliant views, Brilliant Breakfast!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was regrettably only here for one night, but was suitable impressed by the hotel, even though i had not specified it, I still got a room with a view of the Tower of London!! The room itself was spacious, the bed was only reasonably comfortable however but for only one night it was good enough plus a comfy sofa which i guess converted into another bed. The bathroom was very modern, even a speaker in it so you could still hear the TV while showering..very clever! Also had one of the best cooked english breakfasts i'd ever a huge selection of continental breakfast for those with a smaller apetite...well worth a visit!!!

A great hotel, great area! great breakfast!

from travelcritic
Giving this hotel a four star may be a tad high, (maybe 3 1/2) however this hotel is really great if you are looking for a budget hotel in a decent location. For us Canadians, travelling to the UK is a very costly experience. However, you wont feel ripped off staying at this hotel. It is modern (small rooms, but that is typical of London), some ammenities and very close to the London Tower Bridge. You can be anywhere central in a 10 minute tube ride. But the feature that draws me to this hotel is the breakfast. That may sound crazy but this hotel offers one of the best hot buffet breakfasts that would run you over 25 pounds i'm sure (so why not get all the food you can included, a healthy way to start your day) The area is really neat. It's sort of nestled in the business area of town but just across the Tower Bridge are some funky shops and pubs. Bridget Jones Diary had a few scenes in the flats shot here.

Have a wonderful trip!

Fab hotel for families

from sparklyfenella
Stayed with my 2 children aged 11 and 13 for 2 nights in the Easter holidays to do some sightseeing. Had fab family room on second floor with good double bed. Kids had stowaway bed thing which was a sofa/day bed when not in use and great full size single beds when pulled out. Much better than tiny sofa beds or rollaway beds that you usually get in hotels. Playstation one access on bedroom tv for £2 per 24 hours which was great when my daughter and I went out shopping for an afternoon and my son could play happily away for a few hours. Also PS2 off reception area but only small lego table for little kids. Advise you get breakfast in with your rate as it really is worth having and has fabulous choice of full english breakfast through to fresh fruit salad, croissants, pastries etc etc etc. Really a feast to set you up for the day. Tube really is 2 minutes away and has district and circle lines. Short 10 min walk to Bank/Monument tube which has 5 lines running through it so really easy to take this route too. V easy to get to all major sights. Hotel is within Zone 1 for tube day passes (we paid £4.70 per day for 1 adult and 2 children) so good value there too. Hotel staff were really helpful and we had a great stay. Would stay here again next time in London. Kids under 15 stay and eat free, I think, but check. Check in and out at 12 which is good for London. We had room service meals and they were good value (£5.25 for kids meal) and v fast.

Top Local Tips for London

Bus or Tube? Buses were cheaper and ran all night, although you have to use a machine to purchase in advance for the night service, bus drivers won't accept cash at night!

Two for one deals If you've travelled by train, you may be able to get a two-for-one deal with your ticket on the attraction you are visiting.

Underground Check the London Underground website for Station Closures. We didn't and discovered on arrival three lines were closed. Also get an Oyster card - you can get them on line and they reduce the cost of travelling by about 2 thirds
