“A last minute drop in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

When travelling South from Calais to Bordeaux my wife and I decided to break up our trip and pull into Poitiers. It was late evening and we just wanted a place to stay and a place to eat.
We googled Poitiers and found the Ibis Poitiers Centre. It was not difficult to find, with the aid of a Tom Tom, and easy to get out of town the next day to continue our journey.
We figured you always know what you get at a Ibis and it was a 9 hour stay at most, so could not go wrong.
Reception were helpful, the room rate was perfect for the short notice drop in and parking was pretty much at the door. Parking was extra ofcourse, but it was minimal and so convenient.
The room your standard as far as Ibis go. It had been cleaned, and big enough for a couple on a quick stop.
The location was superb for our other requirement as restaurants are right at the door and there is a good selection. The city centre and Hotel De Ville are just a short walk away.
All in all a pretty good spot, you get more than what you pay with regard the location and convenience.

This hotel, situated in the heart of Poitiers, was difficult for our Cosmos motor coach to get to because of all the construction in the area. The streets are very narrow and add construction, it was difficult to get around even on foot. That aside, my room was clean but extremely small. I practically stood in the bedroom when I was actually in the bathroom as the bath is even smaller! The breakfast buffet was only average. If I returned to Poitiers, I would consider staying here again because of its location.

Friendly reception staff and parking under the hotel. Usual refurbished Ibis room with dark laminate flooring and strange built in furniture. Not a place to linger, but cheap and clean.Lots of restaurants nearby and in Cafe Magenta we had one of our best meals in France. I would stopover here again.

The hotel is right in the city center (unfortunately under construction as of April 2012), within walking distance of all the main attractions the city has to offer, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from, too.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the private parking lot was already full when I checked in so I had to leave the car at a nearby parking lot (about a two minutes' walk) and it cost me 7€/24hrs to leave my car there.
The room and bathroom were clean and cosy, with a double bed, fold-out sofa, desk, and an extra table with chairs (really handy if you want to eat in your room). Wifi is free and easy to get running. The hotel was very quiet, though I was waken up by my neighbor's alarm clock going off, so rooms might not be that well isolated.

Hotel bang in the centre of Poitiers. Has own private parking but spaces are limited - arrive before 4pm to guarantee a space. Ask for a room overlooking the car park to avoid street noise.

Perfectly good hotel - I didn't bother with breakfast because there asre a lot of coffee shops nearby.

The staff on arrival and departure were very courteous and generous about information we asked. Something you sometimes don't find in French hotels and restaurants. The rooms were super clean and the hotel rules about silence and quietness to allow others to sleep well were well respected.

Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Secure parking. Room as one would expect for an Ibis. Some very good restaurants just around the corner for evening meals. Handy for a stroll around center afterwards.
