“Hotel Ibis Fontainebleau”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We stayed in 3 Ibis hotels in the course of a week and this one needs sorting out. The room furnishings were tired and shabby. One arm rest was missing, the paintwork damaged and the shower room not in very good shape. The paintwork in the corridors also needs attending to. The whole hotel needs refurbishing really. For a place like Fontainebleau, Accor hotels deserve to do better.

Staff were excellent as was the location. The room size was a little on the small side hence the rating. However I would happily stay again.

This is a typical Ibis, clean and functional. I was pleasantly surprised by the gregarious atmosphere in the bar. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's location is excellent, central but quiet.
If I was spending a night or two in Fontainebleau I wouldn't look any further if you are happy with a basic hotel format.

Stayed one night on our way in to Paris. Friendly staff, clean and pleasant hotel conveniently located in centre of town. Car park beneath hotel very convenient but I had not realised this would be charged on departure. I had not noticed this cost when I made the internet booking sometime before. We have stayed at multiple Ibis hotels over the past few weeks and I have not noticed parking arrangements being obvious at the time of booking.
We also seemed to have a transient problem with black particles in the water supply to wash basin and bath.
Overall very happy with the consistency of service and facilities in Ibis hotels across France.

Hotel is located in the center of Fontainebleau, close to the castle. A private parking is available for a fee, but a public parking is located nearby. Many brasseries and restaurants around the hotel. The room is standard 2010 Ibis style, with mattress put on a hard box which makes it a bit hard. Standard Ibis Breakfast you can enjoy outside on an inside terrasse, quite nice in spring/summer. not the best Ibis out of the 16 I have experienced this past year, but for Fontainebleau it provides a good value for short stays. For longer stays in town I would move up to a better brand within Accor.

Room Tip: All rooms are very quiet since the hotel is in a small street, away from main road.

Very basic accommodation, closer to a ferry cabin than to an average hotel room in terms of room size. Clean, simple, basic. Gets the job done for a reasonable price, but don't expect much more than that.
