Hotel Ibis is just across St. Etienne main railway station. Cozy,though small rooms with clean rooms and bathrooms. Located in the central area with access to a few restaurants just a short walk away. Good for overnight stays when on business alone.

Just booked one night here on a business trip . Everything was very clean and presentable . The hotel is very convenient to the train station and had a super restaurant next door ! The service from all the staff was very attentive and the receptionist Valerie was very helpful and made the trip a lot easier thanks Joe Gallagher

There are two Ibis hotels in St Etienne and Iadmit we saw the other one fro the motorway, but could not find it again. However, we had a good overnight stop at the ibis opposite the station. All too often these hotels are dismissed as bland or boring, but they do what it say's on the tin and this one... More

Easy to find, difficult entrance to car park, which is gated. Difficult access to lift to get up to Reception. Room clean, but no air handling. Window opens onto terrace with no stay on the window to prevent access from outside. Breakfast good. Good value for the money, but with no fresh air or air handling, it made for a... More

This hotel is spartan but clean. It is directly across the street from the train station and is easy to find. Breakfast was ok but hardly worth the fee. I asked for an iron and I received an iron....without an ironing board. Was a little tricky using the small desk to iron my dress shirt. All in all - the... More

Very few hotels in the center of St. Entienne, so there is not much to choose from. However, I would certainly pick elsewhere than this IBIS. Have stayed at IBIS hotels for 25+ years all over France & other parts of Europe, & am disappointed to see a continued decline in consistency. It seems that the only thing consistent about... More

Hotel is located in front of the train station and at walking distance to business area, perfect for business traveler. Very friendly staff. Room has a good size, wifi connection worked fine. Breakfast was OK for the price, but please add some more selection to the hot plates.

I came on business trip from the UK and needed to be meeting a company 5 minutes away from the IBIS hotel. I stayed here without much choice and was concerned about my impending stay after seeing many negative reviews on TA and can confirm that they are correct. I will write the good and the bad. The bed room... More

My husband and I checked into this hotel for a 3 night stay. The room was so awful that we immediately checked out of the hotel. The room had a terrible smell and was beyond basic even though it had been advertised as a room that you could relax in. We paid the room rate of 75 euro for the... More
