We stayed one night as a stopover. I'd not stayed in an Ibis Budget before but I was quite surprised at how good it was. It is budget though - keep expectations down and you should be pleasantly surprised.
If you arrive when the reception desk isn't staffed, there's a telephone there where you dial a number and the receptionist comes right along - the receptionist appeared to be the housekeeper too so she was off making up rooms.
We booked a double (one without the bunk bed arrangement overhead). The room is basic but not a bad size and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom layout is a little odd; the toilet is in a cubicle, the shower is in a separate cubicle next to it and the sink is in the opposite corner of the room but it's OK for a night. The only gripe I had was that the toilet cubicle smelt quite bad. We should have mentioned it and changed room but given we weren't in there much (and it only really smelt when you were in it, it didn't seep into the the rest of the room) we just stayed where we were....I could not sit in the toilet with the door shut though, it was too much! It would have been good to have some more hooks on the walls too to hang stuff.
There are a few chain restaurants within easy walking distance. There's a McD's next door and another chain sandwich / lite bites place plus a Courtepaille across the road which was very good.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this place. It's great value, comfortable, in a convenient location with a good selection of eateries around. What more can you want?!
