“Rude Staff and Irresponsible Manager”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

The Ibis chain of hotel is one of the most patronized in Europe. Unfortunately the Bad front desk staff esp. Laurent of Ibis Bordeaux Centre Meriadeck is the most uncouth and ill mannered staff we have ever encountered. Imagine asking for change of bedsheets after 3nights stay ,the reply is, you think you are king and queen, Do you change your bed sheets regularly in your home? His assistance on the day in question both Male and female I would say are in the same pot of >>>>>> arrogance, rudeness and ill mannered. I told them this is not the last they hear from me. If any complain, my Advice tto see the Manager provided he is around. They waive a night room off for the rudeness and arrogance that we pointed out to them before we left. Good hotel spoilt by a few staff.

The Ibis Bordeaux Centre Meriadeck is a good, inexpensive option located only a short walk from the old town area. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have ample space, the WiFi is great and the hotel is located immediately opposite a tram and bus station. There is a restaurant downstairs and easy access for cars.

I stayed here for one night. The rooms are very basic but clean - to be expected. The bathroom is like a wet room which if you do not have indoor shoes/slippers and don't want to get your feet / socks / tights wet, is a challenge. The staff were generally helpful. This is a place to rest your head, I would opt for a more luxe Ibis or alternative if you want a more relaxed stay.

Clean place and very quiet, great location and yum breakfast! Near public transport. Bordeaux is a beautiful town - definitely will stay here again! I stayed here with a group and everyone enjoyed the hotel and visiting the town and wished they had longer. The staff seem to be working hard, making sure guests are comfortable. Love bordeaux!

Room Tip: Stay here!

There are two ibis hotels together. I stayed in the budget one. It was a short walk to the town center, and rooms were only about 50 Euro while i was here. The rooms were clean, property a little old, and the rooms very small (could barely get my duffle on floor between the wall and bed). But, I was paying for two rooms and needed to be a short walk to the town center. I think this is a great value if you are on a budget, expescially with its proximity to the town center. The other ibis (not the budget one) that is also attached has a 24 hr restaurant and bar there. The staff was really helpful.

For the money I would probably stay someplace else just for the feel of the rooms. They are dated and just didn't make me feel like I made the right choice. The staff was great, the restaurant (breakfast only) was great but I still didn't feel that great about this one. If on business I would probably stay at Adagio Gambetta or Novotel. Keep in mind that Novotel is more expensive so you can't really compare the two.

No a dump but probably won't stay here again.
