Ibis London Wembley Hotel (London)
This is a great economical, convenient stay.
I actually booked my stay here based on reviews I read online! Even after I made my booking I was still thinking I had made a mistake. I was imagining the worse...
Oh how pleasantly surprised I was.
I loved my stay at the Ibis in Wembley.
I have to first say that we went for the X Factor audience bootcamp at the Wembley arena. This was my first time to Wembley.
Friendly, clean and inviting area.
There is a mini bar area but it seats about four people.
We were warmly greeted and asked if we had a room preference. We did not, but she asked if we wanted a quieter room and she guessed we were the X Factor visitors (there was to be a football match the next day). Our room was on about the 7th floor, end room, very quiet.
We had an end room which was compact but functional. I was very pleased with it. I examined the bed and linen- crisp, white smelling fresssssh. There was a long window giving a good view of the road and although it really viewed a roof top car park and the hotel opposite it was suffice. The bathroom was fine for me but my companion could not get over it! I guess we giggled over it and I do have to add that it was like a large Port-a-loo. Why? Well it was a big plastic room with a step up. Like a portable addition to the bedroom. I actually liked it because it was clean, walk in shower and obviously a new functional room that was added to be more hygenic. The TV was fitted to the wall, bedside lamps and air conditioning. Lovely long mirror and a big one in the bathroom. A clock on the tv. A kettle and an assortment of teas.
The arena - 2 minutes away
McDonalds - about 8 mins walk
We thoroughly explored the area
Tesco express - about 5 minute walk max
Hilton for coffee - 2 mins walk
The area was nice, clean and tidy. We arrived at the Wembley tube and walked up the High Street which was a good twenty minutes, but we got to see all the shops and restaurants. The other tube is Wembley Park and we took this on the way back (lots of stairs up to it or a steep ramp).
There is a restaurant at the Ibis Hotel which was very busy for breakfast. We are more independent and went to the Hilton for coffee and bought a delicious salad from Tesco Express.
We were out until quite late at night and felt quite safe in the lit up areas. We were there just before a football match. The day we left the burger vans and paraphernalia went up and transformed it to my worst nightmare, but luckily we by passed this as we caught the Tube to central London.
There is limited car parking if you drove down.
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel and I hope to go back. The actual room is basic but functional and considering I was expecting it to be dreary and ugly... it was not.
If you are looking for a modest place to stay at a modest price please book this hotel.
