... physically too small for us to all fit to watch the Changing of the Guards. Check. • spotted a castle? Check. Windsor Castle. Albeit while driving down the motorway • walked through a famous Square? Check check. Trafalgar Square. • Shopped like a local? Check. Even if it wasn't Harrods. • seen a show? Yes. Piccadilly Circus. Quite a boring show really. Not a clown in sight. • Been on or over the Thames? ...
Our first trip on Emirates. Well I didn't think it started well, they wanted to pick us up three hours beforehand our departure ...... What the ....... Managed to delay it for half an hour and the pick up car was lovely, so we got to the airport only two and half hours before departure,in time to vote!!!! Slightly chaotic boarding and unfortunately the worst seats in business class. I know I know, I should be so lucky but hey we had paid good money and were stuck ...
... into the terminal, off on a conveyer Angus rode to the next plane.
Four house in Seattle...boring. The seats in the domestic terminal are very close together and have arm rests between them, so you can't lay down and take a nap. I asked the agent if he thought I would be able to get an earlier flight, from my seat. Another passenger had just asked him a question from the same location and he had given an answer. My question, however, required me to come to his desk where he ...
... got to the tour, it started spitting... Them raining..... The pouring.... Did I mention that the tour was and outside one? We ended up absolutely drenched and pretty cold and sadly my white top became a see though top! All in all though it was a great tour and I suppose that the lighting and thunder and rain gave the tour more ooomph to scare us a bit lol Right now it's 1am and have started packing my case to move onto the next part of our ...
... airport. I got stuck in the middle seat to Abu Dhabi, but then an isle seat to London. Barely slept, but the view from the window as we came in to land was amazing. I got grilled by the immigration man about the purposes of my trip, where I was staying, how long etc, found my bag and then staggered around the arrivals lounge trying to find my way out. Finally found the underground station and the train took ...

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.
