“Smelly air conditioning”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We have stayed in this hotel lots of times over the years. The beds have been updated with a memory foam topper, this is very uncomfortable. We woke up with leg cramps several times during the night. The main problem was the smelly air con.This has been a problem in a few other ibis hotels we have stayed in recently I do think this needs to be sorted out as it could cause a serious health hazard.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of the corridor ,away from the lift.

I recently travelled to Arras as the home base for visiting the Canadian WWI memorial at Vimy Ridge. I picked the Ibis Centre Les Places on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews, and I was not disappointed at all. The value for money here is really excellent - my room was very small, but impeccably clean; the bed was very comfortable and I slept soundly. The street outside was noisy - I was there on a Friday and Saturday night - but when I closed my window all the noise was blocked. The breakfasts were truly outstanding - a wide array of choices including crepes, served in a lovely room with lots of light and a view over a pretty little courtyard. Excellent wifi, friendly staff, great location in a pretty part of Arras - no downside to this hotel at all. Recommended.

Staff where great, efficient and quick check in, but the rooms are so small and need some tlc, I booked a twin room for two adult men, the room consisted of a double bed and a very small pull out 'camp bed style' second bed, not suitable for an adult.
The towels are so thin, curtains where hanging off and no kettle or tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Although at the budget end for price I would not stay here again and I would pay the 20 euro a night extra to stay at an independent b@b or try and get a deal at the Holiday Inn Express.

Right in the centre of town less than 1 minute to the two main squares with cafes and restaurants. Slightly cramped double room but spacious bathroom with a (small) bath. Very friendly staff. We ended up parking 5 mins away behind the Hotel de Ville but there is parking in and under the main square a 2 minute walk away.

A typical Ibis hotel.....very small rooms with little space to move. A small wardrobe, tv, desk, chair and king size bed where a double would have been sufficient. The rooms were very tidy and modern and cleaned daily. Free wi-fi was a bonus, although there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room.The toilet in our bathroom was continually flushing and although a repair was attempted, the fault was never rectified.
Breakfast was very good and available until midday! Buffet style, cheese, ham, eggs, fresh fruit, cereals, bread and cake.
There was a machine for tea and coffee, which was delicious and available to guests all day long.
The location is excellent for shops, bars and restaurants as it is near both the Grande Place and Petit Place. The Saturday market well worth a visit.
Our room 103, overlooked the rear garden but proved to be very noisy, probably because it was a weekend and we were near the bars, but this resulted in no sleep for the 3 nights we stayed at the Ibis.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: Take ear plugs if staying on a weekend!

For our one night stay, the room was clean and the hotel has a good location. Rooms are not just small but difficult to navigate for two normal sized people--one of us would have to stand between the beds when the other walked past the foot of the bed. We had a street-side room and the metal framed windows do nothing to muffle the noise when the bars empty out at 1 AM (Wednesday night). We were several floors up but could still hear conversations down in the street with the window closed. I missed out on at least an hour and a half of sleep until the streets quieted down. Other people in our group were not on the street side and were not bothered. The bar and elevators are unfortunately situated so that access to the elevators is sometimes through the bar patrons.

Room Tip: Street-side rooms should be avoided if you want quiet sleeping conditions.
