Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.

We stayed in Novotel City South during our Christmas family vacations. It's a nice hotel near to London Bridge in the South bank area. Rooms are compensatory for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. Staff is friendly and polite. It is definitely a prospective choice for families.

"Executive rooms lack privacy - fine if you don't mind watching each other having a shower."
"Affordable views. Ideal City location. 3 minutes to the London Underground via London Bridge Station."
"Ask for top floor quiet room"
"Executive room definitely worth the extra"
"Book in advance & ask for a room with a good view if available."
