Ibis London City
Travel Blogs from London
It was a very busy day and walked miles / kms. Started with a breakfast just around the corner and then walked across Tower Bridge (taking photos) just past the Tower of London and then walked on the footpath following the Thames all the way down to the London Eye in time for our 11am booking.
We past by lots of really interesting places …
We were up early - partly because the the daylight never goes away and it is hard to sleep in - but also partly because this was our last day. Walked around town before breakfast taking some photos in the early morning light. Found a patisserie open and bought a couple of pastries. Then home to breakfast.
There was a young czech guy having …
... 10 years ago. We were all pretty hungry by then and each ordered "Cod and Chips" and washed it down with a couple of Becks. After that we hopped on the no. 43 bus bound for London Bridge. The kids enjoyed sitting upstairs at the front whilst we wound our way through Londons northern boroughs south. The weather was lovely with London enjoying its warmest day for the year. Many persons were outside in the parks lounging on deck ...
... us it was the opening of parliament and that we would see the Queen coming down Whitehall. He asked us to say hello to her from him. So off we went on our Barclay bikes in the direction of the bands. There were horses and pomp and ceremony. Charles and Camilla horse face went past first in a horse drawn carriage. The Queen & Duke followed about 10 minutes later after other bands and lots of horsemen. She waved at everyone ...
... like we haven’t quite been over 4,000 miles (7,000kms). Also, when the floods in Calgary happened – we were in Venice at the time – oh the irony! This made us feel very homesick and it was really tough being away from a place you know and love and feeling quite helpless. I think I was stuck to the computer streaming videos for days! We are so proud of our hometown though and the way everyone pulled together. Luckily we did have a very exciting moment that summer - ...

Very centrally located and provides tea-making facilities. Modular bathroom and economic with supplies, only one towel (no hand towel) and no tissues. Single beds are quite small.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis London City
We have stayed in this hotel twice. Both stay were excellent. Nice and clean rooms, very good ambiance in "le bar" and most of all great staff. Try if you are looking for great quality for small price....
Very good price for an excellent service and comfort.You cannot expect more from this range of hotel.Ideal location, brand new hotel and especially great food at the French restaurant. You should try it.
Great Basic Hotel
This hotels does exactly what is says on the tin, simple, clean and comfortable.
The reception staff where great even asking if i would be using Wifi (i did want to) to ensure i get a room with good reception.
The attached restaurant is quite reasonable for the price, not the best place to eat in the area (try spitalfields just up the road) but if you dont want to go out its defefintly acceptable.
Ibis London Hotel is absolutely over average of medium-low priced hotels in London. Spacious room, enormous shower, very friendly staff, good buffet breakfast, close to underground... Good value!
My partner and i stayed at the London City Ibis for two nights, from the 30th Dec 2005 to the 1st Jan 2006.
A Pleasant Surprise
We were moved to this hotel after our original choice was overbooked. The immedidate area by the hotel is not exactly picturesque so we were not thrilled on arrival. However, it is right next door to the tube & relatively close to Tower Hill.
On entering the hotel I was pleasantly surprised. The staff on reception were welcoming & the lobby & bar area is spotless.
Rooms are fairly basic but very clean & fine for a night or two. There are coffee making facilities, but no hairdryer, fridge or safe in the rooms.
Bathroom was excellent with a fab shower.
At weekends breakfast is served until noon for the late risers.
The bar is pleasant & not at all expensive by central London standards.
All in all a fine hotel.
Clean, modern hotel
You are here in very standard Ibis hotel like you can find in France. If you don't expect a very warm and personal atmosphere but if you like clean, ergonomic, spacious room, you should be pleased. In November 2005, the hotel was brand new. It is a really good opportunity in the expensive city. By Tube, it will take you 20 minutes to reach Oxford Circus and 15 minutes by foot to go to Tower Bridge. There is a restaurant at the ground floor where you can have a continental breakfast. To enjoy great English breakfast, just walk towards tube station where you will find many coffee shops. My wife and I have appreciated the one called Arena.
Very nice stay
We spent a weekend in London and stayed in Ibis London City. The hotel is new (opened in june 2005), the room was very clean and the service was good. The price is reasonable. Nothing to complain about. As the hotel is really only 100 m from Aldgate East tube station it's perfectly situated. We would stay there again without any doubt.
Stayed at Ibis London City at the beginning of July. Nice hotel. Good value. Next door to Aldgate East tube station and five minutes walk from Aldgate tube station. Ten mins from the tower of London and very close to the famous Brick lane.
