“Very relaxed and very comfortable following a long drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We last stayed in this hotel two years ago and were pleased to discover that it had maintained its standard. We were travelling through France to the Channel Ports and again found it to be perfectly acceptable. The lady in reception was very pleasant and accommodating, the room was typical Ibis standard and size, clean with a comfortable bed. Although alongside a busy dual carriageway and close to Parc des Expos Zenith, noise levels and disruption were acceptable. We didn't choose to use the hotel restaurant for dinner but visited Le Chamois (almost next door) and were well satisfied.! The buffet breakfast at the Ibis the following morning was typically Ibis fare but was plentiful and adequate. There is a secure parking area at the rear of the hotel. I would have no doubts about using this hotel again in the future.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

You usually know what to expect at an Ibis and I have used this one before when travelling towards Bordeaux/Spain from the Channel ports. This is far enough from NW England for a first overnight stop. If you are maximising your driving time then Rouen can be a bottle neck and the advantage of stopping here is it leaves you south of the city for an efficient start the next day.
The staff are friendly and knowledgeable (and can speak English if your French hasn’t had time to get up to speed). There is no restaurant here for an evening meal which is a disadvantage if you have had an early start from the UK and just want to eat and crash out. (However, there are a couple of places within walking distance but not much to shout about).
The new bed system has been installed but to be honest the old beds were quite adequate and comfortable.
I have two niggles with this Ibis,
1. The room we were given was the smallest I have ever had in an Ibis (it was on the ground floor)
2. The breakfast was a bit on the mean side (usually you can rely on an Ibis breakfast to be more substantial with more choices.
3. Only provided with a small bath towel – no hand towel.
4. There was (someone elses) hair on the back of the bathroom door - very disappointing and (fortunately) not common.
I’ve noticed that Ibis prices have gone up over the years and are not now the great value for money they once were. You can improve the value by paying up front but this is a risk as you would forfeit your payment if you have to cancel. Ibis must have recognised this as there is an Ibis Budget hotel next door which appears to be half the price – (I’ve not had to try out this standard, however, so can’t comment).
Overall this is a reasonable place to stop but NOT great value for money – Ibis are not as good as they used to be.

This hotel is very clean and the service that the employees render is wonderful. This hotel is not in the greatest location, but you will find food, supermarket and Zenith arena across the street. The rooms are small and not really a whole lot of space for luggage but it is a clean hotel.

This typical Ibis Hotel is ideally located for an overnight stay when traveling South from Calais 2 hours to the North. Being on the South side of the Seine one avoids the morning traffic in Rouen when heading on towards the Autoroutes. The Hotel has a locked secure compound at the rear for cars. The staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and pleasent and the breakfast was well up to the Ibis standard. (we did not eat there at night so cannot comment on Dinner).
