Stayed one night while visiting family near-by (within walking distance). Hotel was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a short stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. Even though it was near a busy road it was quiet. The only criticism (as with lots of hotels-even some expensive ones!) there was no mirror near a plug for... More

Stayed here for 4 nights for the food show at excel centre. Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. People shouting in middle of the night, £2 for a cup of tea in the morning, all in all a horrible experience and couldn't wait to leave. Will never use ibis again.

I've stayed at an Ibis budget before so knew exactly what to expect. You get exactly what it says on the tin and it's fine for one or two nights, but not any more. Always check the price of the Ibis too though as we had friends staying there (it's next door), and paid less than we did for the... More

It is on a direct line to the center, which is convenient, even though the train station is a bit far away (15 minutes walk or 3 stations by bus # 5). If you have a room facing the highway, it can get extremely noisy. Also some guests were making noise way after the midnight. Thus, ask for a room... More

We read the reviews before staying at the Budget IBIS and where a bit concerned at the negative remarks. When we arrived we found the desk staff to be polite and helpful so this was a good start. The room was small and very basic but clean, we found the bed very firm to the point of hard however it... More

Stayed here for one night on the 7th march, was dreading going after reading the reviews. However I have to write one as I think people should decide for themselves. It wasn't at all as bad as I was expecting! Yes the rooms was "basic", the bed wasn't the comfiest, and it was rather small, but if you only want... More

The Ibis hotel Barking seemed on the Internet a pleasant place to stay in. It wasn't till we arrived and went to our room that there was an appalling smell, I contacted a member of staff who then checked the room and agreed with us so we were then moved in to a different room which was dirty and dusty....

"Budget" in name is what management spent to make u comfortable. Hardly budget if I found a place right on Hyde park with full breakfast included and proper bed, shower and toilet at the same price.
