“V Good value for London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Finding a reasonably priced hotel in London that get good reviews can be a challenge . My search came across the IBIS London City. It was good value as there had special offer on which gave one night free if 2 were booked - so we got 3 nights without breakfast for £225 which for London is v good value .
The plus points are
Good price
Fairly new hotel with reasonably sized and clean rooms
Quiet ( we were on 7th floor)
Free wifi
Good access to underground with Aldgate and Aldgate East being very close by ( both are on different tube lines so you can get to more places without changing )
Lots of TV channels
Small tesco metro supermarket right beside the hotel

Minus points
Shower only - no bath
Not close in terms of walking distance to too many of the major tourist sites ( Tower of London is quite close as is the Whitechapel Gallery ) Other places will take 20-40 mins walking to get to such as St Pauls / Tate Modern )

I would definitely consider staying here again

We enjoyed our stay at this very good hotel in London. The staff was very efficient . The morning buffet was very fine and the room was clean. The location is very near Aldgate East, so it was fast to come around in the city.

stayed for 3 nights, nice room, cleaned every day good size bed that was comfy and for a good price when booked a couple of months in advance. location is very good for central london walking distance to tower bridge, tower of london and even st pauls, tube station next door, was quite noisy at the back of hotel but think this was due to building work so not really their fault, reception staff were helpful and has a nice feel to the lobby, would stay again.

Overall good opinion. Stayed for a week during June. Felt the hotel don't prefer families as when I searched for room availability , it said no rooms when I wrote there will be 1 child. When searched the next second without inputting only the adult numbers showed rooms available. The morning breakfast is decent. The hotel is very near to the tube station and that the main advantage. Lot of restaurant nearby. It costly staying there on weekend.Dont know if they have a swimming pool or Gym. The rooms are quite small but good for two adults.

Room Tip: Choose the one which facing the London skyline. The toplayers are better.

Efficient reception staff, who checked us in very quickly. Quiet room, not a big room but clean. Bathroom bit small and extractor fan not working. Very close to Aldgate East underground station. Next Door to Petticoat Lane markets and only 5 minutes walk to Brick Lane Market. Within walking distance of Tower Brigde London. Overall value for money. I would stay again.

Funky reception area, very friendly reception and bar staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Room was spotless, compact but served its purpose, cleaned every day. Tesco express right next door, Aldgate East tube station on the door step. Some nice indian restaraunts nearby. Have stayed with the IBIS group before in Paris. Would I choose IBIS again? Absolutely.
