Day 18: The One With the All the Laziness

... living there, so it's hardly a town...) We're staying on the Böttcherstraße, which seems like it's ************ounce but actually means "Cooper's Street" after the barrel-makers (or coopers) who used to line it until the 19th century. We prefer to think that it was named after our cat, Cooper, but we're a little nuts that way...

Aside from the obvious reasons to visit Bremen--and before any of you **** burgers ask what those obvious reasons are, I'm going to ...

House hunting, agencies and decisions!

... have to return for a second look and meet the girls living there later but at least I had found a nice place which I liked better than the first one, and it was 100 pounds cheaper which was also good!

The third place was in Wimbledon which is also South London but on the other side to where I have been staying and looking. It was a lovely area. I can see why Wimbledon is so popular. It was really nice walking the streets and looking at all the ...

Lunch at the Queen's Place

... s left of it. And the masses get to participate in this to varying degrees. Royalty does not strive to amass a personal fortune inspired by the ideals of democratic capitalism. The political Right embodies this ideology, promoting self made fortunes justified by the so called trickle down effect on the economic welfare of the not so well off. The old world ruling elite however were expected to look after their subjects or they were likely to revolt. These days ...

Historic London

... guard ever known. To be honest he would go well in acting. We walked to Trafalgar Square. Which was absolutely amazing. There were four lions which everyone seemed to be climbing. And of course we climbed too but we will get to that later. We ran around Trafalgar taking pictures of everything that we possibly could. Then finally we climbed up to the top and onto the lions. They were really hard to get up. But of course for Matthew it was easy as, being the ...

... in London at the moment with his Girlfriend, so we met up with them at a Bar/Club called ELK in Fulham for some drinks. I had been here before with Alex when she loved here so I knew what to expect but mitch was a bit shocked with the difference in clubs to that in Melbourne. London's outer areas have a lockout at 2am so we were told to finish up drinks and move on at 1am when the bar closed so we headed to a Mexican restaurant across the road for some Nachos at ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis London City

    Great Quality


    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.

    Truly hated it!!!


    Let me begin with the positives:

    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!

    Great base for london


    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.

    Good value


    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.
