Good location. Clean, quiet room. Breakfast was good but place too busy (hard to get a table). Nice and lovely young people at reception welcoming guests + check out.

« Enjoyable return visit »

We like Ibis. The rooms whilst not spacious are comfortable and have reasonable storage space. My wife finds the 'pod' bathroom very user friendly.Easy walk in shower and close and well lit mirror above the wash basin. Breakfast can be busy but we were directed to a table quickly. The staff kept the buffet well stocked and it was good to have nicely poached eggs instead of the stodgy scrambled mess one often finds. The highlight of our stay was complimentary glasses of bubbly after our Italian waitress from Turin learnt that were were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Thank you.

« Payment Mistake!!! Please help me to solve this problem. »

Dear Ibis London Blackfriars, My name is Xue H.. We had a happy living in Ibis for the last few days. Unfortunately, when I checked my credit card information, I found there is something wrong with our payment. For the last night we live in Ibis, it was a separate booking from the other days, and we paid by cash on the day we checked in. I remembered it was a gentleman who did this for us. On the day we checked our, a girl couldn't find the information initially, but several minutes later, she told us that everything is ok and we can leave. I think there must be something wrong with your system or someone who did the check-in or check-out for us. Please have a double check in this! I feel so sad and I cannot pay twice for one night. I hope we can solve this problem by emails, because I am busy in preparing my study, and don't want to go there in person. Yours, Xue H.

« Excellent hotel »

I have stayed several times at this hotel, most recently in July. It is really a very good hotel, in particular the service level and the friendliness of the staff. Must admit that the breakfast is in particular god.

« Great location and nice people »

Ok so hotel accommodation is hugly expensive in London, IBIS is a good choice for the semi-budget conscious, we did we a "rack rate" advertised in the lobby for £360 per night. However, located in Blackfriars Road a short walk to the Southwark train station or a little longer walk to Blackfriars overland (or keep going over the bridge to blackfriars underground station) location is great. There is a post office next door for ATM access, a Tesco and Waitrose just around the corner. Its a decent sized hotel, with the funky IBIS fit out, including the "pod" bathrooms. One thing that this IBIS has that others we stayed in don't, is a the amount of seating on the ground floor, every nook seems to have tables and chairs, and lots were being used for what seemed meetings by guests. The bar and restaurant are location on the ground floor and were always busy. We didn't sample breakfast but it looked ok from a distance. Staff and service with of the IBIS class, except one day our room wasnt made up, when we asked for towels (it had rained as it does in London all day) the room attendant offer to make up the room, but we declined but thankful of the offer. Would I stay there again: sure. It was more cost effective than other hotels on the other side of the river, and you can get anywhere easily.

« Convenient but expensive and not well linked with the Accor Loyalty programme »

I booked Ibis Hotel following an offer from the Accor Loyalty programme to reinstate my points that i had lost for staying at Accor property for some time> The stay was OK but rather expensive and surprisingly they didnt reinstate th epoints despite the fact that I checked that my Accor card number was properly recorded

« Horrible service »

Reception said my le club points were registred when they were not,, told me everything was paid for when it was not, told me breakfast was included when it was not. Ibis Blackfriars is a mess! And your staff cannot be trusted. Great location, lousy hotel.

« Always Excellent »

This is the 3rd time that I stayed in the same hotel in London. The location is amazing, with a lot of restaurants, supermarkets, pubs. There are a tube station in the same square and Waterloo is so close, as London Eye and Big Ben.

« Excellent value for money »

Just like my first stay here in March it was perfect. The location is great for many purposes, in my case for business - close to the tube and to Waterloo Station. The staff at the reception was extremely kind and caring. At my arrival I spotted that I had been assigned room 722 - which I really didn#T want because I had requested top floor (I am a bit picky in this regard). But I couldn't even finish my though, when the receptionist already said "I'll change that" and assigned me to the top floor. Immaculate! There was only a extremely tiny hickup regarding the late check-out, although the problem seems to bee the Acco reservation system (I have had this problem in other hotels , too). I had booked (and paid) for late check out in advance and on the day prior to my departure I just wanted to make sure that everything was fine with that. It turned out that the late check out was not in the system (which had happened at other hotels, too), and Angela (super sweet!) changed it immediately. Great! Only that on the day of my departure, at aroung 12.30, another reptionist called me and said that check out was at 12, and if I wanted to extend it. Well, I was a bit confused and replied - of course - that I had already secured late check out the day before, and it then turned out that she had only overlooked it. We just laughed and it was no problem, of course (not for me, anyway). That is really nothing I would consider to be even adjacent to a problem ;-) Of course, as everybody knows, ibis rooms are very basic (although here the shower is rather large compared to other ibis hotels), but the bed is great and as it says above - the price is extremely reasonable for London. I am really looking forward to come back in about 4 weeks already!

« Quick trip to London »

I only had four nights in London and was looking for a hotel in close walking distance to major attractions and/or tube station and the Ibis Blackfriars did not disappoint. The room was comfortable with air-conditioning, comfortable bed, tea and coffee making facilities and a great shower. My room was quiet and had a great view of the London Eye. The hotel was within 100 metres of Southwark Station and in a quiet and safe neighbourhood. If needed, there was a supermarket around the corner. The check-in and check-out were very smooth and fast. I didn't get to know any of the staff as it was always so busy but I can say that the house-keeping staff were excellent.
