nice modern room - very cheap. comfortable beds. breakfast was good - definitely not the best most romantic place but a nice, clean, cheap, and comfortable hotel very centrally located. parking is public but right under the hotel
Look, no modern French chain hotel attached to a modern French train station is ever going to be charming, particularly when the train station is in the midst of a major and never ending refurbishment. But this place really makes an effort. The lobby is cheerful. My room was functional and comfortable in that soothing Ibis way, and it was quiet. The breakfast buffet was actually quite good. And you're 90 seconds away from getting on your train. I'd never stay here unless you needed to be right next to the station. There must be nicer places to stay in Rennes, but I got to town late, had an early train the next morning, and everything went fine.

First contact was negative as we did not know there were TWO IBIS HOTELS near the train station, and had to treck our luggage through the trains station dirty and dangerous surrounds to get to the right hotel. The station was undergoing renovation and was muddy, with scaffolding everywhere and all kinds of shady-looking characters lurking around the station and hotel. After this stressful introduction we were upset to see that there was not even a kettle for coffee and tea either in the rooms or available free for guests in the lobby. Never had this experience with a hotel before, complained and was told it was hotel policy and no manager was available to discuss it (despite their "15 minute satisfaction guarantee"!). We have had experience of Ibis hotels with complimentary coffee facilities in the lobby so not impressed with this at all. We had to buy coffees in their cafe instead. The visible cost-cutting of luxuries was consistent throughout this hotel - unlike OTHER Ibis hotels we have visited. Also breakfast was not included with the price, and had to be paid for in advance.
bonjour Madame, Monsieur et Chers clients.
Nous sommes désolés que les abords de la gare ne vous aient pas convenu, mais nous ne sommes malheureusement pas responsables des travaux en cours pour l'arrivée de la LGV. Effectivement, les hôtels ibis "rouge" n'offrent pas le tea and coffee facilities comme il vous l'a été expliqué. Ce n'est pas inclus dans la norme de nos hôtels et nous respectons le choix de la marque. Le contrat 15 mn s'applique pour des prestations dites obligatoires. Donc, ce type de demandes ne rentrent pas en ligne de compte.
Je pense qu'il y a confusion avec les hôtels ibis styles qui offrent cette prestation et le tout inclus avec petit-déjeuner offert. Vous en souhaitant bonne réception, bien cordialement, Elisabeth OLLIVIER-HENRY - Directrice.
We stayed here for one night on our way to Paris CDG airport the location of the hotel is close to the railway station but our room was quiet and spacious and spotlessly clean we enjoyed our typical French breakfast before boarding the train the following morning.
Upon our return from CDG our friend's car had broken down in the garage north of the station both Anthony and Marion on the Reception desk were very helpful and a credit to the Ibis Hotel in our hour of need and telephoned the breakdown company for us.
Ideally placed near the station, a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre, but even quicker using the metro which leaves from the station which is literally next door! Modern hotel, great views from the rooms facing the city.
