We booked 2 nights accommodation for a twin room including breakfast over the internet. It was a very good rate and with such good reviews on Tripadvisor, and never having experienced Ibis before, thought this was our opportunity.
The hotel is located adjacent to the bus station and a short flat walk from the railway station. The old town is a bit of a hike, about 30 minutes but the walk is also flat. Theres a market on the same side of the road heading toward the rail station with lots of fresh produce. Also a bakery.
Check in was efficient and quick. Our room was ready, even though we arrived earlier than check in time. The hotel decor is minimalist and modern. Theres a bar and restaurant. It looks very new. Check out was equally efficient. We could leave our luggage after we checked out. Reception staff were very pleasant, professional and accommodating.
Our room, (333) overlooks the bus station. Its basic decor, but really everything you need. Basically small. The window is openable. The beds are hard and the pillow flat. The shower is magnificent. Everything was very clean.
We thought the idling and taking off of the buses together with anoouncements, could be better than the loud a/c system, but kept being woken up, so closed the window and left the noisy a/c system off. Consequently not the most restful sleep, as the room got stuffy.
Wifi was free and fast and available in our room.
Breakfast was a basic buffet style There was enough quantity, but the quality was not there. Strange tasting fruit salad, watery yogurt, weak coffee. There was hot and cold choices like sausage and scrambled eggs and cheese and cold meat, tomato and cucumber. The bread and pastries were very good. A basic and uninviting breakfast room.
I think this place suits people on a tight budget. There are no generous surprises, but the Ibis delivers. If you are happy with a small room, with basic amenities, then this is the place for you.
We think we got value for money.
