“Very nice - new, clean and spaceous”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

We spent three nights as a couple at the Ibis London Blackfriars and it was a very positive experience!

The hotel itself is very modern, nice and clean and the room was surprisingly spacerous for a London hotel room! :-) The service was excellent.

Food and drinks at the hotel was also great at reasonable prices.

It lies just a two minute (if not one) from the nearest tube station, which made it perfect for us. It is on the Jubilee line, which is the direct line to the O2 Arena, if you are going there. We also walked along the Thames to the center of London, which can be done in around 20-30 minutes.

We were lucky enough to find a great deal online for this hotel. I guess the standard rates are a bit more than we would like to pay for a short pleasure trip. If we can get another good deal here, we will surely be back!

Hotel was very clean and trendy. Breakfast was also nice only that we missed was fresh vegetables. Also there were many misunderstandings because me and my friend stayed in the double room and our group included people in 3 rooms so every morning staff asked about us why there is only one breakfast included in our room. Hotel staff was helpful, but they did´t know everything (for example recommendations for restaurants, bars etc.). Cleaning lady forgot our room´s window open during the day and there were pretty cold in there when we arrive in our hotel in the evening. Also she forgot to bring us toilet paper. But these were just little thing which went wrong. Our beds was very soft and pillows also. Free wi-fi was also great! Location was good just near by Southwark metro station.

Warm hospitality and very good value for money. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Public areas are stylish and well kept. Nice bar and restaurant, moderate prices and solid quality. Rooms are functional, for London almost spacious and very clean, though not as stylish as the lobby and public areas, but that's okay. The beds are comfy! Only thing missing is a safe in the room! Bathrooms are clean and well maintained, although I don't like the all plastic room-in-room bathrooms not too much. The hotel's location is very convenient for City tours, Tube station "Southwark" around the corner, "Blackfriars" 5 min. walk and only 30 min. away from City Airport. Another highlight: the breakfast for 8.95 is wonderful!!! I definitely would stay here again!

Comfortable, clean and central to all sights in London. Rooms well equipped and shower powerful. Nice, friendly accommodating staff. Buffet style breakfast good value, gets very busy early on but was fine after 9. Great all round small hotel, would recommend, had a nice trendy feel about it.

Stayed here for a couple of nights over New Year, such a great location, walked to the London eye to watch the fireworks, hotel fully booked, but the staff were very calm and coped well with a very busy breakfast the next day, our room had everything we needed and was clean and warm. Everything was close by with a choice of tube stations, a handy luggage room for departure day.

I stayed here with my Mum while my Dad was due to have heart surgery at St Thomas's Hospital London. The hotel was very convenient to the tube, was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful & courteous. My room key would not operate the door when I arrived and one of the reception staff helped sort it out straight away. When my Dad's surgery was cancelled at the last minute and we had to check out 2 days early, the hotel was very understanding and only charged us for the night we had stayed with them. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would have no hesitation to stay with them again.
