I feel sorry for all those people who have had negative experiences at this hotel; however I must say that my experience was absolutely fantastic in every respect - to the extent that my stay at the Ibis London East Barking was better than some Mercure hotels.

The staff were extremely attentive to all my needs: they were friendly, polite and gave service with a smile all the time.

The food in the restaurant was impressive for an Ibis - a good range of dishes and drinks and offered a Curry of the Day and Pie of the Day every day. I dined there 3 of the 4 nights I stayed - on each occasion, the food was excellent and service was quick.

Breakfast was very good for an Ibis standard. I have stopped at a lot of Ibis hotels; hence I know very well the normal "Ibis Breakfast formula" - a mix of cereals, yoghurts, fruit, breads, jams and hot/cold drinks. However, at this Ibis, there were also baked beans, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon and hash browns - which was a pleasant surprise.

As for its location, it is situated near to the North Circular (A406) road; so is within easy range of other major roads. It is about 15 minutes walk from Barking town centre and train station (served by the Hammersmith & City Underground Line, the District Underground Line, London Overground and National Rail c2c services); which makes it ideally-placed for a ride into the centre of London.

The room was the normal Ibis standard - a decent size, with a very comfy double bed, desk and flatscreen TV. It was clean and very pleasant for a 4 night stay.

Overall, a really super stay - and hope to be back at some point in the future.

Hotel located 15 min walking distance from the nearest metro station. Tesco 24h shop 3 min from the hotel. English breakfast served, very poor quality. Its better to eat breakfast in one of the cafes in Barking area (cheaper and much better).
