“Good location and perfectly good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

A few minutes walk from Southwark tube station. Pleasant welcome at reception, room standard Ibis style. Comfy bed. Pre fab bathroom with good shower. Flat screen TV and wooden floor. Absolutely fine for an overnight as was at an event nr Blackfriars. Very reasonable rate, will probably use again.

Many people consider Ibis to be a lesser chain than many others but my experience here cannot be faulted.

Lovely room, stylish public areas, and the food is absolutely outstanding. And compared to many the price really is great value.

One minor complaint I have is that you are allowed to order food to eat in your room, but you have to go to the ground floor restaurant to collect it - which is awkward getting in and out of lifts and rooms with a tray in ones hands. A small tray charge to have it delivered by a member of staff is the way to go.

Short stay in the ibis hotel, it is the cleanest we have stayed in for a long time. Catered for every need, easy booking, service fantastic, very friendly and helpful staff for such a large hotel. We didn't feel like we were on a production line or in the way at any time. Excellent food, fan prices, 24hr room service, large choice for breakfast. It may be used by many on business trips, but it felt homely. Free wi-fi, free Internet access on laptops provided, bonus ! Will book again for later in the year.

Just spent a lovely weekend at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet! We were on the 13th floor and had nice views of the city. The breakfast was fantastic. Something for anyone - and as a fussy eater this says a lot! The location of the hotel is perfect. It's so close to a main tube station that you can get any where you need to be. We came back to the hotel on Friday evening after a lovely meal out and the atmosphere in the bar meant we couldn't not stop for a drink! Reasonable prices for the drinks and even the room service doesn't seem badly priced. Would highly recommend and we have no doubt we will be staying here again next time!

I made a reservation for this hotel and then had to cancel two weeks prior as my travel plans had changed. I called the hotel to cancel but they still charged me for the night anyway. Since they couldn't find a "record" of me calling to cancel they billed me for the first night. Be aware any travelers that use this hotel, their reservation staff aren't exactly the most competent or well trained to handle situations like this.

Thank you very much for having taken the time to leave here a review following your experience with the ibis London Blackfriars. I took the time to investigate the situation that you brought here to our attention and I have the regret to inform you that at the time of the booking you had selected a promotional rate and agreed for the terms and conditions which stipulate that the reservation is none modifiable and none cancellable. I hope these further elements will help clarifying the situation and I remain of course at your disposal should you have some aditional questions.

Good location a few mins from the south bank and a further few mins to Blackfriars Tube station. Quick check in with a very friendly welcome and acknowledged Accor Le Club membership with two drinks vouchers for the bar without being prompted. Room clean with a good size comfy bed, flat screen TV, desk area, free WIFI throughout, Hairdryer, good shower. (No Safe)
Bar area modern and not too soul less for this type of hotel, only had side orders from the food menu, but these were perfectly fine.

Good Hotel and would stay here again.

I spent a weekend at this hotel recently and found it excellent in every way. It is 30 seconds walk from tube station and close to central London. The room was basic but very adequate. The bed very comfortable, the bar was good and the staff excellent. An ideal hotel to base yourself in while touring London
