4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for two days. First of all hotel is well located, only seven minutes from ferry station. Easy to find.Hotel is very clean. Was expecting worse case scenario, but in the end was quite suprised!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

On the positive side the hotel is a revamped Etap hotel and the decor is fresh and pleasant. As a budget hotel you cannot expect much and this sets a standard that some chains would do well to emulate. There are however, a few problems. I thought that the bathroom was a major hazard as there was no mat and the bath and floor were very slippery. The location opposite the hospital was ok but quite a long walk into the city centre - the girl at reception said she thought it would take about 25 minutes to walk into the old town. There are buses which run quite infrequently and not on Sundays, but on the plus side a single journey was only 1E20. Parking is available but is somewhat limited unless you want to pay extra for secure parking (7E). Probably one of the best things about the hotel is the breakfast - I loved the croissants and the fresh fruit salad, although the machine coffee was not very nice.

The wifi worked just fine although there were no instructions and it took a while for me to realise that you have to open your browser in order to login to the Orange wifi service (which is free). Internet speed was excellent.

A plus point for cross channel passengers is that the hotel is very close to the ferry port which is very well sign posted.

Pleasant and helpful staff. The man on duty at breakfast was particularly charming and chatty.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road to avoid traffic noise.

The hotel is not inside the wall city, but it is only a 15 minutes’ walk. The staff is very friendly and speaks enough English. They suggested us an amazing restaurant called Extra Mural. Breakfast is very good, with a machine for cappuccinos and other coffees. Our bathroom had a tub. No hand towel and no rug in the bathroom, but they put 3 big towels every day.

Excellent stay in the Ibis Budget Hotel St Malo.
No real problems. The car was quite safe parked in the main road outside.
I was surprised that the WiFi connection is limited to a 6 hour period.
Just about close enough to enjoy a walk into the centre of St Malo and back for a drink
