“Staff Friendly, Room Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

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.

This hotel has a very good place in Versailles. The room was very clean and the air conditioning was working perfectly. And the personnel was very nice and helpful. will go back again. I like the fact that the key was necessary to get to the elevetor, so to the room, it feel safe knowing not anyone can get into the elevator.

Our friends had booked a twin room as one is disabled but hotel unable to provide despite having confirmed in email.
We were double charged by €18 at the bar and had half hour disagreement to resolve this. It really should not happen in a major chain like this.
Room very small and very noisy outside, even at 4:30 am, time of writing
Would we voluntarily use Ibis again? No

Stayed three nights here. Breakfast was probably the best value any where in France if I'm honest. An open buffet with the eat as much as you can label on it.
Parking at a place like Versailles is always going to be a nightmare, unless you stay at this hotel with a huge secure underground labyrinth of a car park.
Here's the routine, check in, get in car, drive into car park, lock car, and then come up to ground level a hundred yards away from hotel !!
When leaving reverse this procedure.
Seriously, this hotel is constantly busy, but it's the place to be if your altimate destination is to make it into the Chateau of Versailles.
