Hotel Novotel London Waterloo

The Best in Comfort Across the Thames with an Unbeatable View   

Hotel Novotel London WaterlooBuilt in 1995, just a few months after the opening of the Channel tunnel, the Novotel London Waterloo was one of the first international hotel openings on the south bank of the Thames.  The area has changed immensely as it was not frequented as often by businessmen and families fifteen years ago as it is now.  Today, this four star hotel is the perfect location, especially for those travelling on the Eurostar (fast train between Paris and London Waterloo in three hours).  In addition, the south of the Thames has become part of central London as many businesses have opened their office there.  A bus stop opposite the hotel allows fast and easy access to theatres, dining, and shopping.  Aside from its great location within walking distance to Big Ben and the London Eye, the Novotel London Waterloo offers guests good value for their money. 

The Novotel London Waterloo is managed by Olivier Chaffard, the Sales Co-ordinator and Duty Manager.  As he has been with Novotel for almost three years, he is dedicated to ensuring that guests can feel at home and relaxed when they arrive and stay.  Olivier understands that working in a hotel means being flexible and always being there for his clients.  The best thing about the Novotel Waterloo is its location becauseHotel Novotel London Waterloo it is close enough to the city without being in the very center of the rush and traffic jams.  “Its location has always given to the Novotel London Waterloo a unique character,” Olivier shares.  Located opposite Lambeth Palace, the residence of the archbishop of Canterbury, a third of the hotel’s bedrooms have the best views of London.  The bedrooms face London’s main tourist attractions and their large windows showcase clear views of the London Eye, House of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and St Paul’s Cathedral. 

The hotel is also well-equipped to take care of guests from diverse profiles as they have a great, multi-cultural team to assist.  “I am really proud of my team and every day we receive very encouraging and positive feedback from our clients,” Olivier remarks.  While the Novotel Waterloo has all kinds of guests, each with different expectations, they all greatly appreciate the human touch the Novotel offers as they cannot find it at other nearby hotels.  Olivier says, “I believe that we are very good in adapting ourselves to these different profiles of clients, offering the worldwide Novotel standards with a personal and human touch.”  The hotel is even frequented by some celebrities as they prefer privacy and comfort over glamour and glitz. 

Hotel Novotel London WaterlooFor those who are not familiar with Novotel, they are a worldwide brand well known in Europe as the chain is standardised, so that guests receive the same bedroom whether in London, Paris, Mexico, or New York.  Bedrooms are spaciously sized (25sqm) for London standards and include a queen size bed, sofa bed that sleeps up to two, Hotel Novotel London Waterloorelaxing bathroom, television entertainment, laptop-sized safe, and business facilities with wifi.  The bedrooms hold modern décor of simple furniture with bold, solid colors to accentuate the surroundings.  The effect is serene and calming as it veers away from ornate and busy designs.  This standard is excellent for travellers who choose to stay at Novotel because they want to feel at home as they know the product they are getting, without any unpleasant surprises. 

Hotel Novotel London WaterlooAs London frequently rains, the Novotel Waterloo has an onsite restaurant and bar, just newly refurbished for guests who want to stay indoors.  Their “Elements” concept offers easy flexibility to guests as they can choose where, when, and how much they want to eat.  Some dishes are available in different sizes and there is always a selection of items available 24 hours a day for those who check in late or desire a late-night meal.  For early birds who have to catch a flight or train, breakfast starts at 6 a.m.  Their delicious breakfast spread includes a self-serve Hotel Novotel London Waterloobuffet of cereal, granolas, yogurts, fruits, and hot dishes such as scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, grilled vegetables, complete with fresh juices and coffee or tea.  The Novotel Waterloo makes sure their guests start the day off with a complete meal before heading out for business or sightseeing.  Olivier is also very proud of the hotel’s new contemporary bar, in warm orange tones, complete with a fireplace for people to gather and chill out. 

For those travelling solo, the hotel brilliantly offers a single seating station in their Hotel Novotel London WaterlooElements restaurant, complete with a personal flat screen television with headphones so that guests can comfortably dine alone while watching movies and shows or listening to music.  The Novotel Waterloo also has a gym, steam room, sauna, a private children’s playroom, an Xbox 360 station for teenagers (and adults), and two iMac stations with complimentary internet access and free printing.  These computers with internet and printing access are just another example of how the Novotel Waterloo adds that human touch to make things easier for guests who want to check email, find an address, print a boarding pass, or go on Facebook.

Hotel Novotel London WaterlooThe Novotel London Waterloo is a safe and convenient place for those who want to enjoy the city with rates which are very competitive compared to the other side of the river. Olivier is confident that him and his staff can deliver and states, “Our team is looking forward to welcoming you and we will ensure we make your stay in London unforgettable.”
