“So handy for the Arena”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Booked a one night stay at the hotel 1-3-2013.
this hotel is a budget hotel but it gives you everything you need.

I paid £37 for a family room which slept 3 and this was excellent value for money. Check in really easy and staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking is limited in the hotel but if you get a space it will cost you £3 per night. If this is full there is parking just outside the hotel gates for a cost of £5 per night.

It is literally a 2 minute walk to the Arena which was very handy. Did not eat at hotel as it looked like vending machine food so left the following morning and had a breakfast elsewhere.
Overall very cheap and as it says it is a budget hotel. But if you need a room to get your head down in after a concert this is ideal.

Stayed here with my partner for one night as we were attending an event at the arena. The hotel was very clean, staff were helpful and friendly, had no trouble parking right outside the building. The room itself was very small and basic. There was no separate bathroom, the shower opened out into the room and the toilet was tiny, giving no privacy whatsoever. There was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room which was disappointing, we had to obtain tokens form reception to use the vending machine at £1.40 and the coffee i had was awful! However, the room was spotless, warm and very convenient for the arena, plenty of food places within walking distance as well as bowling and cinemas. In a nutshell, fine for one, maybe two nights but i wouldn't stay longer than that.

Good value hotel. Clean and basic.Continental breakfast is available eat as much as you like for £4.25. As we had no car we had good transport links with a bus stop 20 metres away or the tram system about 10 or 15 minute walk . The staff were friendly and helpful.My only gripe would be the bed. It was hard as rock and was waking up with a sore back.That seems to be a price you pay when you stay in most hotels.However. I would recommend the hotel if you want to see a show at the Motor arena and need a place to stay as its a stones throw away and yes I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the main road if you can

Great value for a one night stay. Clean and basic is what you get but don't bother with breakfast - there is not enough choice and very little seating. There are plenty of places across the road. Staff are friendly and helpful but the real advantage is if you are seeing a show at the arena which is less than 5 minutes away. Meadowhall is only down the road so a spot of shopping on the way home had to be done. Would recommend for the location.

I've stayed at the Ibis Budget Sheffield Arena for a couple of days on February 13. The hotel was at a good location, near enough to the tram. Only 1 5 minutes away from the City Center. The check in was very fast. Very friendly and helpful staff. I have requested a quiet room at the top floor and this was promptly done. Room was very simple, but clean. It was much more than what I expected for what I payed. For just £18 per night, I would definitely recommend it.

Wouldn't have troubled to write anything here but was urged to do so by an email from ibis after I had responded to their own feedback survey.

Key points are: 1. Staff are surely the most responsive, attentive, pleasant chatty interested and helpful I've ever come across in any hotel, whether posh or budget. 2. The metal showerhead flew out of its mounting and hit me in the face when I turned the water on.

Surprised, having said same thing to Ibis, that they urged me to share latter point with the wider world, but there we are ...
