Monday morning came as did the stark realisation that we hadn't yet eaten any cheese. This was quite a feat for 2 reasons. 1) Mummy Moll, Sue and Piglet and Rob had brought about 4kg between them and 2) We all love CHEESE! So, there was nothing for it but to have a cheese medley on toast. Wow! It was amazing. After the cheese fest were the photo …

Docklands

My earliest memories of the River Thames were of swans, canoes and picnics associated with Sunday afternoon trips with my siblings, parents and grandmother. It never occurred to me as a child that this river got bigger and wider and eventually met the sea, even though I knew the theory of estuaries and deltas from Geography lessons. Docklands …

London, England, UK

A travel blog entry by ashleydaile

London was amazing. After getting over the initial shock that I was actually in London, the city came to life! I was traveling with a group of fellow high school students (16 kids), and two chaperones, as well as our tour guide Christian. We had three other groups of students with us. There was a few poeple from Seattle, Washington; a group about …

... After that it was a long walk across Hyde Park passing the big rock concert "British Summer" and the Serpentine. Stewart needed to go the toilet so it was then a sprint back to the Hotel. We all had showers and a quick change. We had all been invited by Peter Anderson and his partner (a recruitment agent that John had done business with) for dinner at "Gilbert Scott". We then headed off to Kings Cross station where it was a ...

... at Big Ben and the Parliament before catching a train to London Bridge. Of course it was raining by this stage so we bought a brolly. We saw London Bridge in the distance and then rode bikes to Trafalgar Square. It was a large square, bustling with people. We caught the underground back to Kensington and had a look inside the Palace and grounds this time. You only see the back of the palace. The front is blocked from the public and ...

    Ideally situated very close to the Excel Exhibition centre, and very reasonably priced for a stay in such interesting surroundings. The rooms are well planned to provide easy living conditions and it is good to have a restaurant onsite, offering good food.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis London Excel Docklands

    Lack of standard Facilities!!

    from

    Stayed for one night - room was fine and clean, but did not have a hairdryer. When I asked for one at reception I was told I could only have it for one hour maximum! Apparently they only have THREE hairdryers for 278 rooms. Pretty poor service!

    Sehr gutes Preis-Lestungs Verhältnis

    from

    Ich übernachte ca. 6-8 x im Jahr in London und habe in letzter Zeit immer das Ibis Excel gebucht, da das Preis Leistungsverhältnis einfach unschlagbar ist. Wenn man über London City fliegt liegt das Hotel sehr verkehrsgünstig. Vom Flughafen aus kann man sogar am Dock entlang laufen und die letzte Abendsonne genießen. Die DLR von dort fährt direkt zum Tower Gateway.

    Perfect hotel poor receptionist.

    from

    Having one young man at the reception who is booking in a lot of people at once does not work. The employee has NO people skills and fails dismally at multitasking. Booking in was a nightmare.

    All other aspects of the stay deserve a ten out of ten.

    Great Value!!!

    from

    I stayed here for 4 days in March 2005. This hotel is exremely good value for money if you are willing to take the train into the centre of London. The train station is less than five minutes away and the journey into london takes about 25 minutes. The trains run regularly (every 10 minutes) from early 6am to about 12pm and the walk to the station is well lit and safe. The hotel itself is very modern with comfortable rooms with a good view of the docklands. I wasn't overly impressed with the resturant but it is reasonable for what you get (remember that London is generally very expensive). Overall this hotel offers the best value that i have seen in London.

    Great Hotel!

    from

    I was extremely satisfied with the hotel. The rooms spacious, clean, and new. The building is very new as well. Although the location is a bit far from the attractions, the hotel's close proximity with the Docklands Light Rail make all the attractions accessible. I would definitely come back to this hotel next time I visit London.

    Sleep well here

    from

    I found the room spacious and very comfortable. It's only a short walk to the Docklands Light Railway station and was well lit etc as it was by the Excel centre. My tip is to get a day pass for the DLR, Tube etc then it's cheap and easy to get around. I would definitely stay here again.

    A Great Hotel

    from

    I stayed at this hotel with my high school tour group after we had already spent two weeks traveling through Italy and France. The Ibis London Excel was exactly what we needed at the end of our trip! The rooms were clean and nice, the breakfast buffet was great (especially the various croissants and hot chocolate!), and the staff was very friendly. There were also some nice extras, such as lavender sachets available at the front desk, and hotpots along with tea and coffee in the rooms.

    Clean, new, budget

    from

    This hotel is great if you're on a tight budget, but also want clean, modern accomodation with decent facilities. Our room offered a view of the docklands, and Canary Wharf, which was a surprise (although a new building going up might block some of the view). The bathroom is clean and new - the shower is spacious, and the water pressure's fantastic, although there's not much room otherwise. The beds are foam, and not proper mattress, but that's to be expected in a budget hotel. You can ask for a hairdryer at the front desk as well.

    Nice hotel.

    from

    Nice, new chain hotel with a great breakfast. Rooms have tea/coffee maker but no hairdryer. Clean ironing room is available at no charge. Some of the rooms overlook the Thames. Staff was helpful and friendly. Access to the metro is a five minute walk, and it takes about 15 minutes to get to Tower Bridge.

    A lovely new hotel

    from

    Me and my Boyfriend stayed at the Ibis London Excel hotel for three nights over valentines weekend and were really pleased with this hotel.

    It was only opened in January 2004 therefore, everything was new. It has a bar and restaurant (however, the restaurant lays on a buffet at meal times, which if you want a snack or something specific this is no good as there is nowhere near by to eat). Breakfast-only a continental breakfast served, but it is available til 12noon.

    Hotel is located right opposite the ExCel centre at the Docklands near the Millenium Dome. Its approx a 5min walk to train which makes all sights of London easily accessible.

    Overall would recomend a stay here it represents good value for money!
