New ibis for London City Airport

Travellers using London City Airport now have a wider choice of hotel in the area following the opening of the ibis London Canning Town, opposite Canning Town station and a key element in the newly-established Hallsville Quarter.

As well as serving the airport, the 196-bedroom property, which features free super-fast fibre wi-fi and 24hr reception service, gives easy access to a host of London’s most bustling business and leisure hubs.

The Hallsville Quarter is a £600m town-centre project established in conjunction with the London Borough of Newham and property development company Linkcity and a key part of the much wider £3.7bn Canning Town and Custom House Regeneration Programme.

This aims to transform and establish the east London area as a thriving and prosperous community, while ibis’ commitment to the local area includes the creation of 25 jobs at the hotel and supporting local food and beverage providers.

The property will also feature ibis’ guest welcome initiative introduced this year, which involves guests greeted on arrival by staff with room keys in hand and linked to the ibis online fast check-in and check-out service via smartphones.
