Stayed for one night £144 (add £24 breakfast for 2 if you want it). Great location, friendly staff, vibrant little bar, clean. Twin room with smallest single beds we've ever slept in, very narrow. In the morning shower was a joke, little more than a dribble. £12.50p for overnight parking at Millenium car park (even with discount from hotel).
I was very pleased that I booked the Ibis City Centre Hotel. It was inexpensive, very clean, and had all the amenities I needed. As the name says, it is in a perfectly central location, close to a variety of restaurants, pubs, cafes etc. as well as many places of entertainment and interest. My room was on the 4th floor, and really quiet and peaceful. The staff were friendly and helpful in every way. Breakfast was available, as was the 24 hour bar menu. An excellent bus service ran nearby, and also ferries up and down the river. Unfortunately during winter, the tourist buses and boat trips are not running. I would recommend the Ibis to everyone.
Stayed at the Ibis as a weekend treat in Brighton. Perfect location for the train station just steps away. Bars, pubs, restaurants, shopping minutes away, but the tourist spots like the pier and Royal Pavilion would be an easy 20 minute walk but there is a bus service right outside to take you there. Rooms I would say are basic, but they are clean, comfortable, I think were pretty spacious, had every thing you needed and a good size bathroom. I was concerned because of its location to the station that it would be a Mecca for stag and hen do’s, there was no problem and no noise at all, great nights sleep for all of our stay. Highlight is breakfast, the Ibis team have tried to cater for everyone in terms of diet requirements and what a super job they have done. The restaurant serves food and drinks throughout the day, and although I never took advantage of it the bar is 24 hours for guests. Must remember the staff, very friendly, polite and welcoming. Definitely will come here again, perfect stay for a great long weekend, thank you Ibis team…
I opted to stay at the Ibis Bristol centre hotel after having a really good experience there a few years ago. But all fool me for not checking recent reviews, as the hotel has gone massively downhill since then. I know Ibis is renowned for its minimalist, no-frills approach, but this branch really does take the biscuit. Where to begin? When I last stayed there, the decor and furniture was at least semi-decent - i.e a comfortable bed and proper desk, seating and wardrobe, but the hotel has since rebranded itself as a cheapskate "pod hotel" affair. The wardrobe is merely a small rail with no doors attached, but two oddly shaped curved slabs of MDF on either side. There's no chair to sit on but a weird, uncomfortable slab of MDF with a tiny padded object masquerading as a pillow. The bed is tantamount to sleeping on concrete; hideously hard and uncomfortable but great if you like waking up with a stiff neck. The decor is laughable to the point that I wonder if someone was deliberately taking the pee, and striving to make it look as cheap and tacky as possible. Surrounding the wonkily-placed TV on the wall is a childlike chalk illustration of a bookshelf, filled with miscellaneous items such as books, a photo frame, plant and radio. It's so badly drawn that one wonders why they bothered commissioning an artist at all. They really would have been better off leaving it as a blank wall. The bathroom is a howler of an experience. A tiny step-in pod in which you can barely swing a cat. The door didn't even close because it was too big/misshapen for the door frame! The toiletries were cheap, disgusting and steeped in horrible chemicals. The products are also tough on your skin and hair, unless you have a hide like a rhino. It's not only the decor that's awful but also the noise from outside, which deprived me and my partner of a good night's sleep. We were on the third floor but could hear drunken shouting outside until the early hours of the morning, emanating from the bars around the corner, despite them all shutting at 11am. This is unacceptable and there should be some form of patrols put in place to stop drunken revellers causing so much noise and disruption to shed-loads of hotel guests who are paying plenty of money to stay at the Ibis, at the ungodly hour of 2am. If the noise was that bad during a mid-week stay, I dread to think how bad it gets at the weekend. The only saving grace of this hotel is its great location in proximity to the city centre, but even then, you're better off staying somewhere less tacky and less hectic because you'll likely end up paying a similar amount of money.…
Great location, just a couple of minutes from Temple Meads station. The check in staff were very pleasant, although the rooms are a little basic they are spotlessly clean! What made it for us was the breakfast, everything topped up regularly and nice and hot, the two ladies (Sabrina and Ana) need a special mention they were amazing, just what’s needed in a hotel!!
Standard service as predicted, rubbery breakfast etc, however a young man who had only just started working there as a room cleaner was the most polite,friendly and kind person there. Full marks to him, he needs a reward feom the hotel for his conduct,hopefully they will know who I mean and act on it.
The hotel is in a great location and was perfect for a weekend visit to a city we had previously never visited. The staff were pleasant, check in was speedy and the room was clean and perfect for our needs. Hot and cold choices at breakfast were plentiful and varied and staff were always refreshing them. All in all a super stay in a lovely city.
My son stayed at the hotel on a school trip recently. He has a few food allergies (carries epipens) and the plan was for the boys to eat in the hotel restaurant for at least one of the three nights they were staying. I wanted to look at their restaurant menu to understand the choices and discuss the options with my son. I rang reception and asked if they could send me a copy if the menu via email along with any allergy info. I was told the food and beverage manager would email me but that didn't happen. I rang again, spoke to a different receptionist, confirmed my email address again and was told the same thing. No-one bothered to contact me. So disappointing. Allergies are more prevalent nowadays and it's vital to get the correct information especially for young people who aren't that confident speaking up about their allergies. Thankfully the boys didn't eat at the restaurant at all this trip but this was an easy request that had it have been answered properly, could have resulted in a fantastic review being left instead of this one. Not impressed.…
The hotel is in a great location but not very inviting. Outside is dark with no lights on so people just walk straight past because they think it’s closed. Inside staff are rude and lazy , there is no background music on snd nothing they makes you want to use the bar area.
Absolutely fine for a one night stay over. Clean, comfortable room. Dog friendly. Great location. Some noise from outside if the window was open, but it’s nestled in amongst a lot of local bars, so to be expected. Very polite front of house staff, check in was quick and efficient. Will definitely visit again.
