“Not bad for 1 night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed one night at the Ibis Earls Court for a conference at the London Olympia. Due to Ascot there was not a lot of choice in London and the Ibis was the only one available in the area.

The location wasn't great unless you were going to Earls Court. It was about 200yrds from West Brompton station but a good 20 mins from Central London.

The hotel it's self wasn't bad. It was a basic budget hotel, however saying that Premier Inns are better equipped. There were no toiletries really in the bath room other than hand soap in the shower. The bed was fine for one person but two would have had an uncomfortable night. The was also no ironing board and the basic pen and paper you'd expect from a hotel.

Breakfast wasn't bad, choice of continental or full English. As we'd booked breakfast with our room we helped ourselves, however they charged £5+ for continental and £11+ for full English if you hadn't paid in advance. Once you were in no one checked what you paid for so I'd recommend paying the £5 and just helping yourself to the full English!

BE CAREFUL - The lifts in the hotel are currently being refurbished, and don't level correctly. I'd tripped a couple of times but I'm young and kept my balance. Unfortunately this wasn't the case for a poor lady who tripped and stumbled face first into a concrete wall on the other side of the hall. To be fair to the staff they responded quickly and helped her but this is an international brand and shouldn't happen in the first place!

In fairness to the staff they couldn't do enough for you. We arrived very early due to the conference and they let us check in at 11am. Also we requested an iron and ironing board and this quickly arrived.

Overall it was ok for one night but not the best hotel or even budget hotel I've stayed in while in London.

Stayed June 2014

They offered me a good room for a very good price when I came to stay. The location is very convenient as it is near the tube station. Staff was very helpful in helping me get a room (I came without having settled any place to stay).

The IBIS Earl's Court is well situated by the West Brompton tube station. It is also well situated for taking a taxi to Heathrow....which will cost 40pds for 2, 55 pds for 4.

One really good thing is the wi-fi is very good and is free all day, which is a nice feature.

Staff are friendly though a little abrupt...not as friendly as some other hotels. I was surprised to find some things are minimal, no box of tissues in the room, no shampoo, conditioner, cream, bar of soap (just soap dispensers), no writing pad or pen, and no wash cloths.

The restaurant is nice and it is very pleasant if you get a window seat overlooking the street.

Rooms could use a makeover. But the hotel has all the basics, it would be nice if they could go the extra step to make it even better..

This is the most disgusting hotel we stayed at ! The bathroom was filled with spiders and insects, the room looked very ugly and old dated. The location is another story. It was in a creepy area, 50 minutes bus ride away from central London ! The lady on the reception is VERY RUDE, she told us to check out anytime we wanted as long as we paid for the 3 night !!!!!!!! DON'T STAY HERE, IT WILL RUIN YOUR EXPERIENCE OF LONDON :(

Room Tip: All disgusting ! If there was 1 stars, we would choose it

I stayed in this hotel after going to the earls court exhibition centre and the location was perfect only a 5 minute walk away ! The rooms were very clean and the bed was extremely comfy. For the price you will pay to stay here you won't find many better hotels in London.

I was going to a concert at Earls Court Exhibition Centre and wanted a hotel close by.
The IBIS hotel was just a 2 minute walk away. I found the reception staff very professional. They dealt with all my requests without any problem.
Breakfast was a lot better than in some other IBIS hotels. There was really a lot of choice.
The personnel was also very helpful.

The rooms are like any other IBIS, nothing exciting but it was certainly big enough.
I would stay here again.

Great location, friendly staff, free wifi.
the only comment I would make is it would be good to have a bar fridge especially if staying a few nights and require a fridge to put food in.

close to train station, airport, wimbledon. breakfast is great variety of food - staff are very friendly.
