Verified reviews of Ibis Styles London Excel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked in recently:
"So much noise."
Overall score2.0/ 5
There was construction going on in the room next to mine that started between 7 and 730am every day and went through the day. I tried to get a nap in the afternoon buy between the drilling and the fire alarm going off it was just impossible.

"Deceiving Pictures"
Overall score2.0/ 5
The pictures for this hotel are very deceiving, I was expecting a slightly luxury long weekend, however I was presented with what I’d call a 'budget' hotel. I suppose I should blame myself as I didn’t bother looking at the reviews because I had trusted ibis as a good quality hotel with high and widespread standards. I paid around £80 per night at a ‘discounted rate’, however the rooms were going for £59 when I checked a few days before. When I arrived, I found out that my booking had be cancelled, as I have arrived a day late. The bathroom smelled of mould, the floorboards in were un stable and the provided hair/body/face/hand was very poor quality. The curtains were stained and the air conditioning didn't work. The beds were okay, but not that comfortable. Also Sky TV was advertised and there was only Freeview. The hot breakfast was only bacon, beans and scrambled egg, the ham was brown and the fruit juice was over sweet. The restaurant closed early and the pub prices where high. There was no food available after 11.30pm.

Overall score3.0/ 5
The room was clean and the breakfast was good. There was a lot of noise, I think it was the vent in the bathroom that would buzz every five minutes or so which continually woke me up in the night. Also the bathroom smelt like a combination of chlorine and stale water.

"Positives and Negatives."
Overall score3.0/ 5
Overall fair price for the room, especially in London. The room (carpet and in the room corners) was not very clean and looked unappealing. This ibis does not fit to my normal experiences with ibis as a clean and pristine hotel. However the staff was very kind and helpful. If you are on a tight budget and need to be very close to the excel center then it works, otherwise I would recommend finding a different hotel.

"Not disable friendly and dreadful promises."
Overall score1.0/ 5
I can’t believe you have to step into want can only describe as a portatloo which you have to step up into this plastic place. I had to use a public disabled toilet at the end of a landing at 10pm 3pm and 7.30am In front of the breakfast area. When I complained while checking out the desk said they would waiver the parking cost only to find it came out my account today never again will I. Book at that hotel which was £109 for the discomfort of a painful night for my a disabled basic need as a a human being for a level area on suite having MS make my life challenging but after a night from hell on my human right. I did inform he hotel of my needs via the booking site.

"Scam: Avoid"
Overall score1.0/ 5
Booked what was clearly shown in the photo as a two bedroom apartment (two rooms with beds in, two doors). The email receipt described the room as "Apartment two Bedrooms" and the price (£370) reflected that. Arrived to find a double bed and a VERY rickety sofa that pulled out. Complained to reception and they denied there were such things as two bedroom apartments and besides they were full anyway. The best they could offer was to put the sofa bed up. The rest of the weekend was then compounded by a charm school dropout in the restaurant (which closes at 8:30pm..), a car park you couldn't actually park in and walls so thin we could hear the couple in the room next door arguing until 1am. At £50 a night (which apparently it is on some days) it's probably okay for the money, but as one review on trip advisor put it: it's not a hotel, it's a hostel with separate rooms. You can get much better for the same money near the Excel. This was a rip off and will be reported to trading standards.

"Employees trying their best but poor experience."
Overall score3.0/ 5
Arrived at the hotel for a convention. First of all, to my surprise the full hotel is going under renovation. Being allergic to dust, I had a fun time with that. Then, the heater system was not working in my room and it took me a good 15mins to get hot water in my shower ( In a freezing bathroom). Call desk, got changed ( they first proposed to just give me a small heater to plug) but the lovely lady said that because I was staying some more days I should get a room and asked for a room for from the dest ( she was really great). I got moved to the oldest part of the hotel, in an old room under the roof, with walls thiner than toilet paper between a drunk customer yelling on the phone and a kid yelling at her mother ( and if they would have been sitting on the bed next to me I would have heard it the same) and the corridor was also super noisy to walk in so people would wake me up everytime. Next days, my card got stuck in the light and I could not get it out. Came to ask help, the lady said she will send maintenance ( Maintenance never came, the card is probably still stuck there) and when asking the next day what about the maintenance the guy that was there answered simply " Well. the light work right?". Sure. Other than that breakfast more than average but pretty close to the Excel Center. Overall I most likely will not come back because I enjoy breathing normally, be warm and sleep without people yelling around.

"Nice and laid back atmosphere and friendly staff but some lacking in equipment."
Overall score3.0/ 5
I couldn’t get the Wi Fi to work properly in my room all week which is very unfortunate as I was on a business trip. The room was very cold and I couldn’t get the airconditioning to work properly either. The heater helped but when I was out the room got cold again. All in all a little bit on the dissappointing side of a 3–star hotel, but otherwise quite ok.
