    Very good

    Room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was very good.

    Location is convenient for visiting London, but quite dirty and I perceived it as dangerous, especially at night.

    Great

    Very convenient location. Staff excellent

    Lots of noise as next to a building site

    Perfect

    The friendliness and the support of the staff were exceptional at all times. The rooms were in a reasonable size and comfortable, clean in comparison to other London hotels. Very easy access (only one stop) from Liverpool underground station to Aldgate east. Bus stop right outside the front doors. Hotel is the right next to Aldgate East subway station .The restaurant and the bar very convenient. Prices were not expensive. Open buffet breakfast above average. I would stay here again since its convenience.

    The staff was friendly.

    This hotel was very, very poor in quality. The bed was uncomfortable and it was seriously lacking in necessary amenities. You had to pay 10pound for 24 hours of Wifi with no roll over.. So if you don't use it, you just wasted your money. If you are an American travelling around like me... 20$ for wifi is certainly not worth it. When travelling abroad the internet is crucial for checking to see where you are going, how to get there, and valuable information on your destination. We were staying 6 days there and that would of added up to 120$ worth of internet if we had chose to buy it. It very much inconvenienced us. Oh, and no mini fridge... Very frustrating for the low budget traveler!!!!

    The relationship quality-price is very good in this hotel. Ibis is what you would expect in every place of the world, there are no bad surprises.

    Perfect

    The friendliness of the hotel staff was exceptional. The rooms were a good size. We did not have time to eat in the restaurant this time but we have before and it was very good. The bar had a nice friendly atmosphere and was always very busy. We have stayed here a couple of times and will do so again as it is very close to St Marys, University of London where our daughter is a student.

    Convenient for City. Good facilities for the business traveller. Clean & inexpensive

    Attention to detail by the maid service - soap etc not topped up on a daily basis

    Nice

    It is very well located! Metro, bus, tower bridge and Liverpool Street.

    The cleaning of the room was very very poor. The bed sheets were not changed in a stay of 3 nights and food left overs from dinner were not removed.

    Nice

    Price, 24hr bar/restaurant.

    Air-conditioning system was terrible - did not sleep well due to the heat.

    Nice clean hotel - hard to find with the construction right in front of the hotel when coming out of the underground.

    Very good

    The value for money was good, beds were comfy. Good entertainment in the rooms, ie tv/radio etc. Bar and breakfast had good selection. Rooms and bathroom were clean and tidy.

    Could do with some more towels in room, we were in a twin room but beds were quite close together, was ok for my group who stayed but might be uncomfortable for some people.

    Very good

    Good location - a little out of the 'city' but great for spitalfields market and the tube station is less than a minutes walk away. Good basic Ibis hotel- nothing fancy but ideal for a few days stay. very clean and good service.

    Hard beds - but funnily enough slept quite well! Cleaners came early - not brill if you want a lie in and forgot to put your do not disturb on!

    Smooking room is ideal for smookers like me.
