We loved it. New years eve. We were very cold, wet and tired after standing watching the fireworks. The staff welcomed us in and served us with food and drink until 2 a.m. The hotel is quiet, comfy and well situated for the embankment and the shard. Brilliant. Thank youGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"New Years Eve stay"
Overall a really pleasant stay. We had a great time at the New Years Eve fireworks, we viewed from the nearby Waterloo Bridge. When we got back the bar was still open so we had a couple of drinks to see in the New Year and to warm up! The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was superb. We would visit again and we would recommend it to […] friends and family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellant hotel in centre of London great price"
It took me ages trawling the net to look for a good hotel from all the reviews.I am soo pleased i booked the Ibis.very modern and clean on arrival in foyer the staff were very friendly polite and welcoming and even great when i had to get a taxi last minute to get to bus station on time.The room was clean and tidy everything my daughter and me needed […] for the one night.The bar/resturant area was nice. A few hiccups with checking in the last people were late leaving so i couldnt have my room but they were sorting out a room so i could freshen up in so pleased with that and i got 2 complimentary drink tickets.When i arrived back at the hotel later they had to reallocate my room as someone was already there but again no hassle. My one aspect they need to improve on is the menu not great variety and not child friendly needs a kids menu. Breakfast smelt and looked lovely although maybe a bit pricey but it is london but we ate on the go. Will use again A+++ Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Confort is the word"
Some people rate the hotels by how spacious the rooms are, others by location, or how the lobby looks like. I rate them by how confortable I feel from when I step in. I like confortable beds, confortable chairs, quiet walls, clean bathrooms, easy to access wardrobes, etc. This hotel had all of that. But, it also had very cheap harsh toilet paper, 2 […] old and small bath towels, poor qualiy soap/shampoo and lack of some basics like a presser/ iron. The hotels lobby and breakfast/restaurant areas are very niceley decorated and the breakast itself is an overall good experience, if you avoid the cooked food. Staff is pleasant and helpful, but you need to set your own table and fight with othe other guests to get one too.Overall is a pleasant hotel on a good location, but with plenty of room for improvements.

"Very comfortable hotel"
Situated near all the sights we were wanting to see. Hotel was comfortable, friendly, helpful staff. Room was clean and compact.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location near the tube"
The hotel is located just 2-mins walk from the Southwark station. Considering its location, this hotel is really value for $$. The room is also clean, and the staffs are really friendly and helpful. The only downside is that you can't take off the shower head from its stool, which caused me a bit of inconvenience, but that's just a very minor thing […] considering the plus side in all other areas.

"Central Location in London, No Frills"
Clean room and comfortable bed, nothing fancy and did the job. The breakfast is not recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value hotel"
Hotel delivered on all that's required for a few nights stay. Food ad drink in bar reasonable price for London. Would stay again, nice staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location and reasonable value for money"
Conveniently located close Southwark underground station. However, a bit pricey for the accommodation. Also not enough desk space in the room to be able to do any reasonable amount of work; okay for short periodsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Quite good clean roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a wonderful travel experience at Ibis Blackfriars. Location, staff, rooms and the good was wonderful. Highly recommend the breakfasts. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone staying in central London.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location. Attended a conference at a far more expensive hotel 10 minutes walk away, so very convenient for that. Tube station, Waterloo station, eating options, supermarkets and pubs all nearby. Friendly staff and good size rooms. Just wish they'd put a fridge in Ibis rooms, then they'd be perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"12pm check in is a bonus!"
This hotel offers great value and being able to check in at 12pm is a much valued bonus with most hotels in the area delaying check in (and ultimately my free time) until 2 or 3pm. Staff are friendly and efficient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again"
Room was basic but spotlessly clean. Good shower, comfortable bed, air conditioned. Hotel was busy as it was a bank holiday weekend. Hotel employees were friendly helpful and very efficient. Had breakfast on two mornings and dinner one evening. Breakfast was excellent as was the food and service at dinner. The lounge area in the lobby was a comfortable […] place to relax and read a book or paper. The hotel bar was perfect for a nightcap. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very friendly staff"
Very convenient for what we neededGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a great 6 days in the Ibis Blackfriars, a few mins walk from the train station, with direct link to Gatwick. Mini supermarkets, pubs, cafes and clubs all within a few min walk. Very central for all the sites in London, in fact, we didn't use the tube at all, as we were able to walk everywhere! Room was spotlessly clean. Only disappointment was that […] breakfast wasn't included and since we'd paid a lot for the room, I thought we'd have least been offered a continental brek. Stayed in Premier Inn last time, at much cheaper rate and full brek was included. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay at Ibis Blackfriars"
Location, location, location.. And Ibis Blackfriars has just that. It's located less than 5min away from the nearest Tube, Southwark. And Southwark itself is just one stop away from the London Eye, 2 stops away from Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and also one stop away from the famous Borough Market. The hotel itself boasts clean rooms and great service […] from the staff. The one thing that could have really made our day was the water pressure in the showers, which was a tad too low. Nearby amenities weren't much except for a Costcutter supermarket. I would have preferred a Marks and Spencer's or Tesco but that's just me. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed at this ibis hotel before and the location is perfect for the Southwark tube station and south bank attractions. The rooms are basic, but comfortable. Staff are very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
On the whole we had a great stay at this hotel!!! Staff were very pleasant and the bar staff were very helpful. Only one small issue was there were not enough hangers for clothes but this is a very minor complaint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and functional hotel."
Clean and functional hotel close to Tate Modern. Room basic but had most things needed. Modern decor and furnishings. Bathroom 'pod' clean and spotless. Staff warm and welcoming. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very practical ..."
Very close to the tube, and in a central location. Hotel is well styled. Breakfast is modest and just as it should be.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel, Not Great for Dietary requests"
Good clean hotel with a great location from southbank. Was unable to provide skimmed milk for me as i can only drink this and was told the bar can help but they were unable to at all told me to go to local shop and buy myself.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"hotel near London tube"
Modern hotel, quite comfortable, was very busy at this time, but location to tube in London good. This should be publicised more by the hotel as the first day we walked from a tube station further away only to find that Southwark was closer.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great meals, comfortable room, close to Westminster and Waterllo station, friendly staffGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyable stay at this hotel , very clean and modern friendly staff good location .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ibis was a great choice"
Location is terrific as it is only a 2 minute walk to the tube station and only 5 -10 minutes walk to key attractions like the London Eye and The Globe Theatre. Rooms were compact but comfortable and hotel has a real modern appearance and feel to it. As London was in the middlle of a heat wave the air con was really appreciated. Food and all other services […] good. Highly recommended - good quality for the price! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable room, breakfast prices ott"
We used the hotel as a base for our night in London. It was a short distance from the underground making travel around London very easy. Our room was very comfortable and in the hot weather the air conditioning was welcomed! My only disappointment was breakfast. At almost £10 per person for what would effectively be a glass of juice and a croissant […] I was not happy to pay it so we ate elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice budget hotel, but needs to be cheaper."
Rooms are basic, but clean, fresh and very soundproof. 5 minutes from Southwalk station which was great. Bed was comfy and good air conditioning. Unfortunatly, we booked about 2 months in advance and found the room rate was £177 for Wednesday night and £156 for the Thursday night. I'm not quite sure why the difference, but regardless of this, I thought […] it was very expensive for a 3 star budget hotel. We will definatly stay again if the room price is more in line with other 3 star hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good but could be great!"
It was a good experience. I didn't like the fact that there was no room service regarding the restaurant and that they were not able to bring up the food to my door. I had to carry everything on my own into the lift and to my front door, tried to juggle the entire tray full of food and to insert my access card at the same time. I also found that the […] staff in the restaurant could use a little bit more training in product knowledge but their service was great! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic service & Great location"
As we stepped into the lobby, we were warmly greeted by the staff at the front desk. Every time i approached any staff, they will go the extra mile to ensure that my needs were met & my doubts were clarified eg printed the map for me when i asked for the direction to my daughter's college accommodation and patiently explained the route i needed to take […] in order to get a bus to Piccadilly Circus. We booked two rooms as we were a family of four & were impressed with the cleanliness and spaciousness of the rooms. Location was ideal as it was only about 3 minutes walk to the Southwark Station & about 15min walk to get a bus at Waterloo Station area to get to Oxford & Piccadilly circus. Breakfast was good too. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to London. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Had a great break"
Well located hotel within easy reach of southbank attractions and easy commute to central london. Staff in the hotel very efficient and always available to help. Nothing is too much trouble. The free early check-in and late check-out are a great bonus. This is definitely a hotel my husband and I would stay at again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel - All Considered"
Good value for money for a spotless and well maintained hotel with great service and excellent location to tour London. Critic talk about small bathrooms, for me I would rather have the space in the actual bedroom. Fair enough I'm just shy of 6' and medium size, I could see some discomfort for a big person in these compact but very functional bathr […] ooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great place today for short term......room a bit small for long stay i.e. more than the 2 days.Genuine Expedia guest review
I absolutely felt much at home when I was at Ibis London Blackfrairs. EVERYONE is very helpful and friendly. I would like to highlight one person, Abi. She is a fantastic person who shows a lot of care and concern for her guests and their safety. Her hospitality is definitely something that I admire and would remember. Shama from Singapore would always […] remember her for her excellent service! Thank you Abi. We need more people like Abi in the service industry. All the best!
