The rooms are comfortable, having the necessary furniture and amenities. No refrigerator. Wi-fi was weak & got disconnected frequently. Have to log-in frequently. Choose garden facing room. Security is good. Breakfast buffet is quite adequate spread. For meals & essential requirements, the Novotel (same compound) restaurant & shop may be used. Bills can be signed & posted to the room...

The hotel is located in a good area and has a few rude staff, particularly Perpetua. Breakfast was basic - not too many options. You have to go for breakfast really early to be able to get good food to eat. The worst part of our stay was when one of the hotel staff sprung a surprise on us by... More

Ibis located within the same premises with Novotel Hotel is located not far from the airport. It is a beautiful place to stay with excellent rooms though the regular rooms are not so large. The services and food are great.

You know what you're going to get with an Ibis, right? Well, yes, the room satisfied expectations but the WiFi here is very unstable and I can truly say that I had the worst ever hotel dinner here: rice microwaved to thermonuclear temperatures and dried out chicken. Ibis generally represents a safe option at the budget end. The bedroom itself... More

This is the best out of three Ibis hotels visited in three days. This hotel is clean, relatively new, well located and has excellent rooms. I was very well welcomed by a very pleasant reception staff lady who advised me on the best room location. You don't normally get this at other Ibis hotels. It's definitely a hotel I'll gladly...

A no nonsense, no frills hotel. Rooms are comfy enough, but no tea or coffee facilities are provided. Breakfast is fine. The evening meal selection is limited. The bar is an extension of the reception desk, hence the 'functional' description.

This is a no-frills hotel with average beds, and small, functional bathrooms, and simple breakfasts. During my 4-night stay, the internet was problematic, the elevator broke twice, the hot water was sporadic, and the service - particularly Euridyce - was unfriendly and unhelpful. They do not offer early checkout service, and the airport shuttle requires negotiation. In a city with... More

Standard ibis hotel, rooms are simple and clean.Nic pool. You can use the pool of the Novotel which is situated on the same domain. Breakfast is simple but good. Staff is helpfull and friendly. The internet is a little bit slow. Near airport and sea.
