The hotel was located in a good position, walking distance to explore the city centre. Like most Ibis hotels, you pretty much know what you can expect from room size, quality and facilities. This was no different and was certainly not the worst budget style motel we stayed at on our travels in the region. If the room is clean... More

Our stay at the La City Ibis was spoilt by the poor service we felt we received from the reception staff. Firstly the inadequate directions for the access to and exit from the car park and secondly when dealing with the fact that we had been allocated a room that had not been cleaned and prepared for use by the...

Breakfast costs extra as some hotels does- but with such cheap prize for the room its ok. Breakfast was very good, so good it could've been in a 5 star hotel! For a... More

Clean and centrally located, this quite new hotel offers a parking lot. You are in walking distance to the city center and also quite near to enter the next highway. The bathroom was quite "plastic style", but clean and well maintained. Unfortunately the rooms window was not to be opened.

Good hotel just for one night. The rooms are pretty small, but they are clean and fresh. The beds were nice. The staff talked English. Good parking if you have a car. I can highly recommend the restaurant. Very nice seafood to very good prices.

Very clean and warm rooms. the hotel is close to the center. The breakfast is delicious with a variety of choices. Nice and elegant design. The only thing that I didn't like is the not caring stuff. Although they are friendly and polite they didn't make any effort to help us with a couple of things. Neither mine nor my... More

Very close to city centre, those who complain it "is a bit far out" could probably do with the five minute exercise to walk into the city centre. Rooms are very large, or at least the ones we had were, and only cost 20 Euros more than we were going to be charged for camping nearby and breakfast was included!!!... More

This hotel isn't worth its three stars. The rooms are quite small and poor. Breakfast buffet just minimum. It's a bit out of city center in a very modern building without any charm. Garage available for extra cost. If you sportive, you can easily however walk to the center to have a nice restaurant. Allin all Disappointing. Ibis 3 ***... More
