You know what to expect from an Ibis hotel and it was all there. Room small but practical and very clean. Bathroom basic but functional. Free decent Wifi. And while it was very busy no noise from other guests at all. Staff was really friendly and very helpful. Excellent location near South Bank and Tate Modern. Very near to the...

Very clean room and decent view. But basic - bathroom a weird plastic pod thing. Bed moved away from the wall when I was sat up which was very very annoying. Great location for South Bank area but recommend you do research to see if other hotels have better price if you want better value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am really sorry to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations. Please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. I was surprised to hear your comments. Ibis hotels in Europe changed all the bedding and the vast majority of our clients are very pleased with this. I...

Love staying here when working in London. It's very central to the Southwark area where my office is and the hustle and bustle of that area offers loads. A quick left out the hotel and your are at the river south bank side. Another 10 mins walk across the bridge and it's central London. Hotel is very new and clean...

Second time here as still very good value compared with the Premier Inns nearby. Spotlessly clean, and surprisingly quiet. Even though my room was right next to the lifts, there was no disturbance. Although it's not exactly in the city centre, there's a tube station very close by, or the city is a short walk over Blackfriars Bridge

This hotel has a very modern look and was very quiet and comfortable. Staff are all lovely and helpful. Not sure about the pod bathroom though - it's like stepping into a time capsule to pee. And it creaks so if your roommate goes in the middle of the night you know about it haha. It is close to Southwark...

I was in London on business and stayed here for several nights. The hotel is very sleek and modern which can kind of leave me cold but that is just my personal taste. The room was comfortable enough and the bathroom, which was a funny pod-like structure in the corner of the room, was quite large. The location is not...

Our stay in London was short but very good. The hotel was able to set us up on a Bus Tour, give directions to anywhere we asked, and saved our life when our transfer to the train station was very late! I would recommend this hotel to anyone in business, or just needing a simple yet very helpful place to...

Totally agree with other reviewers, hotel prices in London are what they are! And don't expect North American size rooms, just get over it you're probably not here to hang out in your room anyway. What this hotel had that was great was location, just down the street from the underground, for tourists a post office between the hotel and...
