I've stayed at various Ibis hotels over the years and I was looking forward to this stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel location is fantastic for visiting the Palace and there are quite a few restaurants and cafés in walking distance as well. When arriving into Versailles by train it is diagonally across the street from Versailles Rive Gauche station (RER). The bed was comfortable and the window shut out a surprising amount of noise.
As I've stayed in Ibis before I had certain expectations. I know the rooms are on the small end of average, but I didn't expect it to be this small. The bathroom had barely enough room to move around it, once the door was shut you had to squeeze past everything.
There was a luggage stand, but no where to put it unless you wanted to deprive yourself of, say, the desk, or the bed, or entrance to the bathroom. In the end we had to shuffle things around a few times to get the bits and pieces we needed in and out of the case.
This was also the most expensive Ibis booking I'd ever made (mostly because when I booked it there was no discounted rates available). Had the room itself been a size I was more familiar with then I wouldn't have minded so much. But considering the size of the room I feel royally ripped off.
