This was only an overnight stay before a weekend in London. Check in was swift and simple. The room was to the standard expected. The only thing that was out of place was the lack of still water.

Disappointed 100%

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

AliciaF1211 18/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

I went to spend a romantic weekend with my partner and I paid £35 to have some romanticism in the bedroom and we had 2 balloons few rose petals and a piece of cheesecake, no even 2...but is alright. Then the fridge didn't work,just water ,no mini bar, safety box also didn't work so they send the maintenance guy to open it but fridge all weekend broken. Next morning again maintenance guy because safety box didn't open now! When we came back in the evening our surprise was the room wasn't clean and also we discovered tv also didn't work!! The ingeniere came and couldn't fix because was a long term problem...that was the cherry on the cake... nothing worked and after few discussions with the manager didn't even offered a room upgrade they would refund 50%... still ridiculous the way this big chain deals with it. We were paying more than £400 for 2 night and was awful no even body lotion in the toilet. The manager actitud was so inappropriate and ridiculous like if was our fault the things didn't work in that room. We couldn't even use the pool because is so small and with covid you need slot of time to go. We will never go back, definitely not a 4* hotel

Amazing view

Ruth Business - 17/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was a short stay originally planned for 2 nights but had to change to 1 night and the hotel was very accommodating about this change. The room was clean and comfortable on the 12th floor with an amazing view over London. Breakfast was good and were able to accommodate for gluten free with cereal and some of the cooked breakfast too.

Good and convenient stay the night before running the marathon. Only problem was a room near us blasting music at 2am, when speaking to reception in the morning they said a room had ordered wine back to the room.

Lost its charm

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Jonathan M. Families - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed in this hotel about 5 yrs ago, I couldn’t have praised it highly enough. This time I found the experience totally polar opposite. Check in was a shambles , a lot of the hotel is now “tired”. Granted we are in a covid age but the whole hotel has become extremely unwelcoming and clinical. The room rates are ridiculously overpriced and just for good measure we paid over £800 for three nights and this didn’t even include breakfast. We purchased breakfast one morning and while it was enjoyable again the whole breakfast experience has lost it’s zip. But to save the best part to last on arrival we were told the room would not be serviced which is fair enough in this time of covid but we arrived home each day to find the room was partly made up and discovered on returning home that a number of items we had purchased while In London we’re missing from our luggage. I’m genuinely not sure if these were stolen or mistakenly put in bin. I am still awaiting further correspondence from Hajer Ben Aleya on this matter. After our first trip to this hotel I went out of my way to return. That certainly would not be the case on my return to London based on this trip.

Matthew H. Families - 09/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Spent a lovely long weekend at Novotel Blackfriars. The reception staff were very friendly, as were the staff who worked in the breakfast room. The swimming pool was clean and a good temperature, just a shame the lockers in the changing room didn’t lock. The bedroom was fairly spacious and quiet and a comfortable cot for our baby. The breakfast had a lot of variety and good hot food, as well as more continental options. Overall a great stay.

lindsaypritchard Business - 03/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Good trip apart from the breakfast which is not particularly good and seemed a bit hectic. The staff put pressure on me to leave the breakfast area 10 minutes before it officially finished just so they could start cleaning.

Dear lindsaypritchard, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at the Novotel London Blackfriars and thank you for the 4 star rating. Thank you for your comments on our staff and service and the comfort of your room, this is an area we are very truly proud of. In regards of the breakfast I have passed your valuable feedback to our Restaurant Manager to make sure we prevent this from happening in the future. We do hope to welcoming you back soon. With Kind Regards

marimonrad 30/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

The hotel was clean and friendy staff. Helpful and service minded. The breakfast and bar was average, though we had excellent service by the kitchen staff for my children. The style of the bar and the style of the reception was a bit off putting, would preferred if it was more intimate and relaxing. The music was bit loud. The pool area was good, clean towels and nice sauna. Wished there was bath robes and slippers for free, since the hotel is quite pricy.
