Ibis London Euston St Pancras
Travel Blogs from London
WARNING: lots of Big Ben photos We got a taxi from Southwell to Nottingham train station and caught the East Midlands train to Kings Cross, St Pancras in London. Thanks to Laura we got the tickets form megabus.com for £5 each. That is right £5 each. Nothing dodgy just cheap. The motel was 10 minutes walk from the station so we booked in …
It is raining and the temperature has dropped to 17 degrees. We feel like we are at home - hot one minute & cold the next. Actually it is only drizzling and we have waterproof jackets so it is not a problem. Still it is our final day in London so a little bit of rain was no deterrent to continuing visiting areas of London on our list. Having …

Today Mat had to work so we got to join Helen & the boys at Ravenscourt park for a bit of playtime since it was supposed to about 90 F/ 32 C that day. So we drove in our car to meet up with H.

Next I hopped a bus for the Geoffrey Museum. It's a free museum dedicated to showing the changes of home life and interiors through the years. I found this fascinating. There are 12 or so rooms each displaying a family room from as early as the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis London Euston St Pancras
The rooms at the Ibis were small but very clean.Bathoom in our room was spotless with a good, powerful shower. However, we had a room at front of hotel which was very noisy due to railway maintenance from the nearby Euston Station. Beds were a bit too firm and nobody had had the foresight to put an electrical socket anywhere near the wall mounted mirror which was a bit inconvient when you wanted to dry your hair. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast buffet was very good with a wide selection of continental/english full breakfast foods. Rooms a bit too dark as they only had a tiny window and rooms very clammy unless you open the window to it's full extent (not really covenient at night due to the noise from the station,once again).
Very good, rooms are smal but very clean and confortable, bathroom small but clean, the hotel location is excellent, the service is good, i recomend to anyone that goes to spend some time in london, don't go to old hotels, they are expensive, and not very clean.
Very good value
Just back from a weekend in London. The Ibis London Euston was very good. It has an excellent buffet breakfast. The rooms are small but clean, and comfortable, bathroom too. We slept at the front side but we had no problem with noise from street. You can leave your luggage in their luggage room the day you're leaving at no charge. From Heathrow airport is 1 hour traveling with the tube. Euston Station is right across the street. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in London we would recommend it.
A good choice in London
We recently stayed at the Ibis Euston for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are small but clean. We found it very convenient to hop on the tube and we were at the major sights in minutes. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in London I would recommend it.
Location is not close to anything you want except the train station, across the street, which is convenient. Still an excellent value for the money. AC is there. bathroom very good by UK standards.
This hotel was an average hotel. The rooms are not large, but they serve their purpose. The bathrooms are much larger that the bathrooms in the Ibis I stayed at in Paris. The rooms were clean. If you are going in the summer, watch out for the flies, because the windows don't have screens.
Watch Out for the Ibis London Euston
I stayed there last week for 4 days. The hotel is very standard. The rooms are very small but clean. The location is good. It's pretty convenient to the Euston Station tube stop, with the Northern and the Victoria lines, and to the Euston Square tube stop, where the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines are available. Some London busses, for instance the N.10, go directly to Oxford Street or to other central locations.
You can take the breakfast in the hotel, but you're better off taking breakfast at the Euston Station by "Ritazza" or "Starbuck's", which is cheap and tasty.
The front desk is terrible or completely indifferent.
My room card did not work almost every day, loosing always the code and I complained to the staff. An aggressive member of the Ibis front desk - a Spanish woman whose name is probably Maria - answered me that Ibis London Euston has 600 guests and I was the only one with that kind of problem!
Do not expect much service. Saturday evening, after having been in Portobello we decided to drink something in Hotel. My girlfriend left a necklace on a table and forgot it. As she realized to have lost it we checked immediately but it was gone. Ok, it was her fault but I told the Staff of my unhappiness and I asked to talk to the Manager. I have stayed two more nights there. As a result I am still waiting to see him...
I would not recommend.
Can't Beat the Price
You can't beat the price for such a great location and nice hotel. I've stayed at Ibis Euston 4 times, every time I've been in London and never had a problem. Euston Station is right across the street; just hop on the tube and you're in downtown London in minutes. Regents Park is a short walk away. It's not the fanciest hotel but it isn't bad for what you pay.
An Oasis in cental London
When you wait in the lobby to be picked up for dinner and you see and count several old school/wealthy europeans you wonder why they are not enjoying a luxe hotel ar a faux luxury experience in London, the answer is they are but they dont pretend about their choice of hotel, they spent their money on more valuable indulgences ! this hotel used to have two skinny single beds now the rooms are all with doubles, even the windows open to blow away jet lag, bathrooms are basic and no fluffy towels in evidence, corridors a little worn but overall terrific value especially compared to the huge # of hotel dumps(especially in and off Bayswater and Paddington areas) Breakfast is great and lots of it, coffee way better than bitter Starbucks and thank the gods they have a car park under the hotel, go for it unless you are a perpetual whiner ! Very convenient location
Convenient_Inexpensive_Nice Bar _Great Breakfast!!
The Ibis Hotel chain has many convient locations. Some offer full food service. The Ibis at the Euston Station subway(tube), is only minutes away from downtown London. It offers basic concierge service, has a nice bar, and an excellent buffet breakfast. The rooms are small_but clean, and comfortable.
