I was staying with friends who had booked into the nearby Ibis Budget, but I inadvertently booked into this one instead. But never mind - it is a decent hotel with clean rooms and decent service overall. At least the two hotels are within easy walking distance of each other. Only minor problems with the Ibis London were that the car parking barrier is a bit confusing, as at the moment you can only get in or out using the Seek Assistance button; and I just happened to have to ask for more knives and forks at breakfast as the pots from which you help yourself to them, had run out. The hotel have been very nice and already apologised almost too effusively for this via their internal feedback email, which was only really a minor problem. I wasn't flying via London City Airport, but that is close by.
