“Never Again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Do not spend your money on this hotel no matter how cheap it is it's not worth it I would not stay here again even if it was for free.
The bed (and i only call it that as it looked like one) was like being on a park bench and the noise coming from the road meant i could have had the same night outside on the road as the room was also cold.
I was charged a car park fee but was not able to park as it was full with cars from people attending the arena, all I can say is NEVER AGAIN.

We booked here as we were going to a show at Mortorpoint Arena. It is a couple of minutes walk there. The hotel was clean, warm, the staff were friendly and efficient. Although not a plush hotel (clue in the name budget!) it had everything we needed. The breakfast was adequate, not rushed, and there was a special deal for sandwiches etc for lunch. We would definitely stay there again if we attend another show. There was also free wifi in the rooms, which was an added bonus as we thought it was only in public areas. The tram service to Sheffield and Meadowhall Shopping Mall was also only a two minute walk away. We had a lovely meal one evening in a pub called 'table-table', which also had a special menu before 7pm.

Booked to watch a show at Sheffield Arena. Very handy only five minute walk away. Rooms basic as the name suggests but better than travelling straight after a night out. Went elsewhere for breakfast and limited parking but plenty nearby.

Booked for an over night stay which cost £39. Located 5 minutes walk from the Sheffield Motorpoint Arena, the hotel is very handy for shows. It is also very convienient for the SuperTram to the city centre and Medowhall Shopping Centre. There are plenty of eateries in the area opposite the hotel and the arena. The only black mark is that parking is very limited, especially when events were on at the arena. Having said that, would definately stay again.

we stayed one night at the Ibis Sheffield whilst attending a show at the motorpoint arena. The hotel is about 150 yards from the Arena so is an ideal place to stay if attending. I cant believe what good value our stay was. The rooms are compact but spotlessly clean and if, like us, you just want a bed for the night this place is ideal.
The staff were friendly and the breakfast buffet (£4.95) was good value for money.
Only two small faults, very hard bed and no mirror above the dressing table to help when getting ready. Apart from this i would recommend the hotel to others and we would definitely stay again (especially for the £18 we paid when you book in advance.) Well done Ibis.
