“Excellent stop over, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

We really enjoyed our one night stop in Arras. The town is interesting, lively and really pretty. There's a great choice of restaurants and plenty to see and do.
The Ibis Hotel is tucked away up a side street off the main square (we drove around twice until we spotted it!) but it is a fantastic location. Rooms are the usual Ibis - you know exactly what you are getting. Clean, tidy, serviceable with welcoming and friendly staff.
Parking is in the main, underground car park beneath the square (so better to drop of luggage first then go and park up). It's a tad pricey, but safe and secure. All in all a good experience.

Convenient stop off on the drive to Geneva.
One room OK. Other smelt very strongly of smoke. Not great for the asthmatics amongst us.
Friendly helpful staff.
Would only recommend as stop over.

Arras is a good base for exploration of WWI battlefields. Les Places is close to the centre of the old town and not far from the railway station and car rental depots - this will improve when the extensive road work in the town is finished. Hotel staff are friendly, thorough in their assistance to guests and dedicated to providing the best possible service. Without being intrusive or irritating, they succeed. The early breakfast hours and the quality of breakfast are exemplary.

We have just returned from a weekend coach break to Arras and the hotel offered friendly, clean and comfortable accommodation along with an excellent self service continental breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful offering assistance with suitcases as the lift was out of order. Well situated for a multitude of restaurants around the two squares where you could sit with a drink or a meal and watch the world go by.

Great location right in middle of Arras and comparatively cheap. Rooms are very retro - think artex and salmon pink - but comfortable and the service was good and friendly. The lift was out of order when we stayed which was a bit of a pain as we had our baby with us, but were on the first floor and the staff repeatedly offered to carry things up and/or down the stairs for us. If you are travelling with a baby I'd recommend booking a family room (with an extra single bed free of charge) as we simply folded this back up to give us the extra room we needed for the travel cot. I'm not sure we would have had enough room had we not done this.

If you arrive after 6 on Saturday you can park in the main squares (1 min from hotel) for free until 9am on Monday morning which was perfect for us.
