Pioneer62312006714 Couples - 17/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Booked last minute. Very basic ‘classic’ room. £260 for 2 nights that’s not including breakfast. Very stingy with room refreshments, no doors on wardrobe and no tissues, bed very uncomfortable but room very quiet. Expected a bit more for our money as stayed in a number of hotels in London over the last few years for around the same price and most were a lot better. Good position in Southwark though and Blackfriars tube station approximately 200 yards away.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.The pricing in hotels follows the laws of supply and demand, and we work on a similar basis to airlines. Prices therefore become dependent on time of booking, season and/or special events. We are confident that our rates are competitive by comparison with what other hotels in the area are offering at any given time. We hope this experience has not discouraged you to return to ibis London Blackfriars in the future. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Even though there was obviously an IT problem going on the staff checked me in relatively swiftly. The room was basic but comfortable and quiet so I enjoyed a peaceful sleep.

Dear Ann, Thank you very much for your kind review. It is much appreciated and I can assure you that the Team will be delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Good but Hygiene is poor

Customer review rating 4.4/5

H Couples - 14/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The hotel is big, located near the metro station, and the staff were very friendly. This is the second time I stay in this hotel, however, the hygiene has deteriorated. Towels were dirty, floor and tables were dusty, indicating that there was no daily cleaning apparently. We had to call to replace the toilet liquid soap which has been empty for 2 days. the Same hygiene problem is noted during breakfast : Plates, cups, forks are still wet and dirty, probably because it is too crowded during breakfast time.

Robert P. Business - 12/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

One night business stay: phone faulty / not programmed to contact reception, so had to go down to report other faults. Staff member came to resolve fairly promptly, but clear that room checks had not been completed fully. Breakfast - once great - now losing pace. Healthy poached eggs replaced with grey scrambled, bacon equally grey and flaccid, tinned syrupy fruit instead of coulis for the natural yoghurt, only white fresh bread.

I often stay at this ibis hotel and this time was allocate a refurbished room. It was very nice, but only one electrical outlet worked, three were inoperative. Staff were excellent, as usual.

Overpriced

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Jackie Business - 10/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The exterior areas of the hotel were very nice but the bedroom was very very basic and overpriced. Anywhere else in the country the room would have cost £45 a night maximum. It felt more like a hostel room than a hotel.

Stathis Families - 09/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

A pleasant stay, close to the underground tube. Although we booked two double connecting rooms, one door was not opened. The hotel is near to Tesco's and Sainsbury's stores as well as pubs and cafes. Everyday clean service. We did not try the breakfast but it seemed really good.

Dear Efstathios, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit and hope you choose ibis London Blackfriars again next time you are in London. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Check-out was a bit confused, and at the end I havent received the invoice via mail and the person created another Accor account. I thought those data had came automatically during booking, but apparently no.

Dear Vitor, Thank you for taking your time to write a review about your stay. We are happy to hear that you had a pleasant time and would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us. Sometimes the automatic mailing system is experiencing some glitches that is out of our control. I am sorry about that! I resent your invoice from the system - please let us know if it hasn't arrived and we will try a different method. Hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Quick stay

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Alan W. Friends - 08/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I was only staying overnight after a social occasion in town. The Ibis is in a great location only 10 minutes walk from Waterloo station and less from Blackfriars. As I was travelling to/from Waterloo and was out in Blackfriars this was a perfect choice for my stay. I checked in online so was given my key on arrival without any need for paperwork and checkout was a key drop - painless. Hotel was quiet even for central London. Ideal for my needs.

Dear Alan, Thank you for your amazing review and your kind comments and compliments. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Usual friendly, polite efficient staff. Great new rooms!!

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Les J. Business - 07/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Greeted with a friendly smiling face. Checked in with ease. The room was to the new style and I really loved it. Very simple and modern and definitely to my taste. Even a rug on the laminate flooring to give a truly English feel! I still believe a little work is needed on the comfy level of the bed mattress and pillows but acceptable. Late breakfast for me but the poached eggs still had a soft runny yolk - must be some kind of chef's magic!

Dear Les, Thank you very much for taking your time to write a review. It is always a pleasure to read such lovely reviews. We hope this won’t be the last time you chose ibis London Blackfriars while in London. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Convenient but not great

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Hans Business - 04/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Simple hotel with basic facilities, but still quite pricey. Beds are very poor. Breakfast is typically British oriented and misses a European finish with several types of toppings for bread like cheese, ham and marmelade.

Dear Hans, Thank you for taking your time to write a review about your stay. We are happy to hear that you had a pleasant time and would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us.
