Very well located, there is underground very near and hire a bike spot the next door. By the way, if you like sport and a different way to know a city, try the bikes. We have enjoyed a lot because everything becomes so near and it's so funny...
The decoration is modern, simple and functional and the room is big with comfortable a bed and pillows.
The staff is helpful and nice.
We had a corner room with three windows and an awesome view.
A very good relation between quality and price.
For us, just two things to improve: maybe the breakfast should be cheaper; It's difficult to maintain the temperature of the water in the shower regular.

Room Tip: We asked for a high floor and stayed in a corner room that was very big and with a very good view.

Visited end of Jan for one night and thought the hotel was great - nice decor, funky bathrooms, great breakfast, centrally located and reasonably priced. Beds were comfortable, and rooms were reasonably sized. Would come again.

I stayed here for one night in December for the office Christmas party as I didn't want to have to get the last train back home to suburbia!

I work around the corner so checked in at lunchtime and the reception staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Check in was very quick. Lobby is funky and a nice place to sit with a coffee. Room spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and pod bathroom had all you needed including an excellent mirror for makeup which is important!

Enjoyed a good night's sleep and had no problems with noise. I was on a high floor which may have helped in that regard.

Breakfast the next morning was plentiful, with different breads and pastries, cereals, fresh fruit and cooked breakfast together with coffee, tea and juice. The cooked breakfast was not particularly appetising but the rest of the fare was fine. Coffee was good.

I booked on a special offer which I thought was fantastic value for money but not sure I would want to pay over £100.

Very convenient location within a short walk of Waterloo and the South Bank.

All staff we encountered were exceedingly polite and friendly.

Recommended.

Room Tip: High floors for better view and less noise.

Have stayed here a couple of times on business.

I figured that as it was new it would be every bit as good as the Novotel it shares a building at a much lower price.

Since then I have chosen the Novotel and paid the extra.

Whilst clean and modern, I found the rooms too spartan (white walls / wooden floor - not welcoming or homely) and was woken up several times in the night by the sound of water being flushed down pipes from above.

I had the same experience on both occasions.

The reception area and bar downstairs is nice but the breakfast buffet (whilst good in itself) was a bit of a bun-fight. You are given a tray and it is up to you to find a spare table (not always easy)...

On the plus side it is a good location and can be very cheap for central London (I paid £80 or so on one occasion) but I would only choose to stay there again if other local hotels (Novotel/Mercure etc) had no available rooms.

Modern three star Ibis of the Accor group. Clean , accurate, modern. very well located! The perfect placeif you want to reach in a few minutes the city centre. People at front desk are adorable, very professional and always smiling. Special note for Isabelle who help us before leaving, holding our luggages in the storage room.
Only one bad note, I had to buy a visitor plug converter
overall experience good
