Great staff and room was nice

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Anonymous Business - 14/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff were so lovely and the pizza they made me at 12am was amazing, really appreciated their attitude and helpfulness throughout. Room was fine however there were a couple issues, one of the bathroom lights flickered non stop whenever it was turned on. Also T.V wouldn't turn off properly, was like a black back lit screen opposite the bed all night whilst trying to sleep which wasn't ideal. Both minimal issues though, still enjoyed myself.

Excellent location and very clean

Staff very nice and helpful . Rooms very clean although we didn’t find the bed and pillows as comfortable as we would like them to be. The location was excellent for getting to where we wanted to go in London.

Great stay

As always, the staff were all excellent. The room (we were given one of the newly fitted out rooms to try) was a big improvement on the old style, the fit out gave more space to store things such as a suitcase, and the decor is more contemporary. My wife summed it up when she said that it was a room that she would be happy to spend some time relaxing in, rather than just somewhere to sleep at night. The hotel has a good attitude to the covid situation and everywhere was spotless and felt very safe. Of course, there are luxury hotels out there, but you get what you pay for and this hotel punches well above it's weight with regards to what you get for what you pay to stay there. Thanks for another lovely stay!

Better than expected for a budget hotel, clean modern and comfortable

First post-Covid visit and frankly disappointing !

Customer review rating 2.5/5

A S. Couples - 12/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Accor Silver card holders for years, and frequent visitors to this hotel, the visit was disappointing ! No signage about mask wearing in lifts, (either in the lifts or nearby), sanitisers in lifts empty for 2 days etc - so not really good enough. Our room was not serviced on the first day until we complained on returning at 5.15pm. No-one then came to tell us when it had been completed. So basically no-one 'owned' the problem and followed through to make sure our problem had been solved. We recognised few of the staff so assume that many have changed during Covid. Clear that there is a need for some serious management overall and staff training. Quite poor.

Good service and nice rooms

Ibis London Blackfriars is the best hotel in London City! If you’re looking for a place to feel confortable, to sleep tight, to have a unforgettable view from London you will find everything here. A hotel with a fantastic deco style where you can work or chill having fun. The bar is fab and Arturo the bartender makes a perfect Mojito, the best I have had this summer I checked my room and everything was perfect. The cleanliness of the whole hotel as well as the room is impeccable. The most interesting and touristic points of London can be reached at 15-20min walking from Ibis London Blackfriars. Thames Path, London Bridge, London Eye it's right next door Public transport is available just a few meters away, including Blackfriars train stations providing access to Brighton, Paddington or Edinburgh for example. All around you will find stylish bars and restaurants, the neighborhood is quiet swell. Just amazing. Special mention to Clément on the front line of the hotel. Caring, courteous, correct, a true gentleman. Lovely people like him make all the difference Fun, chill, and delightfull stay guaranteed!

Excellent staff

Great stay, breakfast great, staff wonderful, room ok, could have been a little bigger, as have a powerchair, and a mobile shower chair would have helped, as had to shower in chair, which wasn’t great. Location very good.

Never stayed in this location before, but was very handy for Waterloo station. However I did pay extra for a room with a city view. Obviously ALL rooms if they have a window have a city view so I expected a more uninterrupted view having upgraded. The back of a university building was the city view! Also surprised that there were no usb ports and the kettle was at the opposite end of the 'desk' to the sockets where there was an ancient telephone. A long extension cable was provided to trail across to meet the kettle. Wouldn't like to have been in a basic room!

Very pleasant hotel, welcoming staff

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Verity Solo - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great place to stay if you want to be central but not pay insane London prices! Andrew on the welcome desk is an absolute star and really went out of his way to ensure I had the best stay possible - nothing is too much trouble for him. The bar has a good variety for the size, and both of the staff make amazing cocktails. I also like that there is a wide variety of downstairs seating options if you need to work/video call during your stay but don't want to do so in your room. My only criticisms would be that the beds are very firm, and that room service us only done now if you specifically request it.

Lovely Stay

Very straightforward and close to public transport. Quiet and clean. Bed comfy and sheets clean. Staff friendly. Basic breakfast and plenty of it. Would use Ibis again as you know what to expect. Airbnb can be a lottery and no cheaper.

Thank you very much for your review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit at ibis London Blackfriars. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Perfect location, great price

DayTrip586927 02/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights with our 10 year old Daughter. The hotel is within walking distance of the London Eye and surrounding attractions. Tube station just down the road if you don’t want to walk. The room was basic but clean, we were out all day so we only spent time in the room whilst sleeping and getting ready in the morning so it was fine for our needs. The breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, pastries and hot food. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your lovely comments! We look forward to go above and beyond again for your next visit in ibis London Blackfriars. Sincerely, Guest Experience

Short break in London

vincentcowdrey 24/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

A well situated hotel with easy access to transportation and local tourist attractions. I have stayed at this hotel a few times now and hope to do so again. It’s fairly basic basic but is more than made up by good value for money, friendly staff and a great location. Easy access to the underground with most of the city attractions within walking distance.

Thank you for your lovely comments! We look forward to go above and beyond again for your next visit in ibis London Blackfriars. Sincerely, Guest Experience
