“Very good - great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Vienne looked interesting with it's many Roman buildings so this was our first stop on the way back from the South. We chose the Ibis based on previous experience of these hotels as well as the price, location and secure parking. The hotel overlooked the Rhone and was on the edge of the old town. We were travelling with another couple but unfortunately the booking for the second room had not been received. However, the young woman on reception was very helpful and booked in the second room. The rooms were small but this is expected and the beds very comfortable. The shower room was a reasonable size but the bath towels were a bit flimsy. The soap dispensers were only a quarter full (I've noticed this in other Ibis's) and I had to squeeze them pretty hard to get the soap out - it's not a big deal but was irritating. Everything was very clean. Breakfast was a cold buffet with good selection and was more than adequate. There was free wi-fi and the midday checkout was very useful. One thing we thought odd was that one night we noticed the receptionist was also serving meals and drinks so was dashing back and forth from reception to the bar and dining area which meant that either people checking or, or diners had to wait. However, he appeared to remain cheerful despite seemingly under pressure to be in two places at once.
If in the area again we would definitely choose this hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the front as the hotel is located on a busy road.

We have stayed at many Ibis hotels throughout Europe, and this has been the best so far. Vvery good rooms,, spacious, lage shower, etc. location is good for exploring Vienne, but had to leave window clsed to avoid traffic noise (no prolem with good air conditioning). Friendly and helpful staff. Garage spacious, bur entrance a little narrow. Recommended.

++ very good location: all the interesting areas (for tourists) are within easy walking range.
++ room exceptionally spacious, airy and clean (and quiet).
++ sleep very comfortable in super king size bed & accessories
+ parking for car an interesting plus
- restaurant so & so (possibly August factor?)

en route to south of France we lined up this Ibis as last year's cheapo motel was a bit of a disaster ~ found the Hotel easily, big bright clean and cooled reception was a welcome relief after a days driving; secure underground car park (at small extra 8 euros a huge bonus) as leaving the car in the open with luggage etc makes it vulnerable for break-ins; room clean and roomy enough with neat shower / en-suite; 2nd big bonus was a very comfortable bed!! breakfast typical continental style but fine.
town delightful and not what we expected either, but if travelling south, there are no petrol stations between Ibis and the motorway, fill up as you come into the town!

Hotel inside is fine and service good. Nice room, though we couldn't turn the TV off for some reason. Apart from that, the hotel is virtually on a traffic island. The garage is down a backstreet. If you arrive on a motorbike, it is a pretty tricky U turn from the street.

When one books with an Ibis Hotel, mostly in Europe one expects the minimum or less. In this case although what is offered is the minimum, one must be fair as it compares with very competitive pricing. What is not fair is when what is offered is less than the expected minimum.

This Ibis is exceptional in that it actually offers more than promised and particularly staffed with personnel which is well trained or chosen and a plentiful good quality breakfast.

First on the personnel. Both Charline and Corrine who welcomed us in the middle of the afternoon at the end of our bike route from Lyon, were very pleasant and exceptionally accommodating. We booked this Ibis because it is conveniently situated for entering and exiting Vienne, not because of pricing which is not how we travel. Our bikes were well taken care and accommodated safely. Furthermore the room although a European size (!) it was clean and perfectly functional in all its aspects, from quality of bed to the shower, sink, desk and WiFi availability.

As to the quality of breakfast next morning, this was again of high quality and plentiful at a minimal cost as compared to quantity and quality. We are coming back in two months at the end of our bike tour towards our final destination of Lyon.

Thank you Charline and Corrine and sorry because I cannot write in French even though I speak it fluently.

Room Tip: Make sure you do not book rooms in the 5th floor since these rooms have a slanted ceiling and are no...

Fine for bed and breakfast. As I was pushed from time and it was a Monday when many places are closed, I thought I'd eat in. Waited ages for service in "restaurant" which has a very limited frozen menu (room service never answered the phone) so gave up and went out. Would stay there again for convenience but it could use a rethink on the food.
