“Nothing wrong being on south side of river”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We were there for a 4 night stay & it is in a good location with the tube station 50m away. The room was very clean, the bed & pillows were comfort plus for us! The room was also at a great price for the location.

I stayed here for 2 nights in June, in order to be near the West End. I can't fault it. Comfortable, clean rooms. Staff who were friendly and very helpful. Good food. When we explained that we were going to the theatre, they served our food quickly to help us.
I'm beginning to think that hotels and restaurants should be judged by how happy the staff are. At this hotel we got the impression that the staff enjoyed working there. I'd definitely use the Blackfriars Ibis again.

If you are looking for a comfortable hotel near the southbank then definitely consider this one. It's much in keeping with all of the chain hotels - all the rooms are identical, the shower room is a plastic tub but it is clean and modern. The staff were friendly at the desk and breakfast was good, although a little bit pricey at £9. Make the most of the location though and just walk everywhere- keep in mind it is closer to southwark station than blackfriars and the young vic is less than 5 minutes walk from here.

We stayed here on 2nd & 3rd of July. The hotel is really close to the tube (Jubilee) and the Thames and London eye which was really convenient for us as we were doing a lot of sight seeing and also visiting the O2 (which is also in the Jubilee line) for Monty Python. The staff were friendly and the room very clean. Breakfast was buffet style and the choice was excellent. We didn't eat at night but we did use the bar which was very welcoming. Excellent value for money.

I liked staying at Ibis London Blackfriars.
Good employers, nice restaurant, sensational music.
Beautiful hotel with a special location.
I walked to the river side and viewed the Big Ben, Tower Bridge and other atractions like Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Hyde Park, Saint James Park, Regent's Park, etc...

My husband and I stayed at Ibis London Blackfriars for two nights in June 2014. We chose this hotel primarily because of its proximity to Waterloo Station where we were catching a train for Weymouth in a few days time. We have stayed in Ibis hotels in a number of cities and have always found them to be clean and friendly accommodation at a great price, and the Ibis Blackfriars lived up to that reputation. The Reception staff were particularly good - very friendly and helpful.
Waterloo Station is a 10 minute walk away, there is a good pub on the opposite corner, and the Blackfriars Hotel, about a 15 minute walk, offers great food (if you don't want to eat in at the hotel itself). Very close too to a Tube station.

Ibis do nothing fancy but in this hotel they do it ok. It's a good central ( brilliant for South Bank) location that is clear and tidy.

Has very few touches to turn your stay into anything special but for a place to sleep the night you can find worst.
