If i could rate 0 i would! but i cant..
The hotel it self as it says in the name is BUDGET.. When we actually booked our hotel stay the images were not of the rooms we stayed in. when you arrive their are 2 receptions, 1 for the Ibis Luxury and 1 for the Ibis budget. ibis luxury staff speak good English but the budget staff speak very very little. once you check in and you arrive on your floor their is a strong smell of urine as you walk from the lift to your room.
when we walked in the room we were surprised that it looked nothing like the pictures on the website from when we booked. in the bathroom their was mold on the ceiling tiles and pubes in the bath tub and around the toilet and urine stains on the toilet it self. in the bedroom you are left with a double bed with a "ok" mattress and a single bed above. "not good when trying to have a romantic night" the A/C unit makes a very loud noise as if it is working but even when placing your hand by the grill you cannot feel any air coming through. the only good thing about the room is the TV in which if you speak french is perfect but if you dont then you can watch BBC World news. the windows do not open so their is absolutely NO air circulating inside and the extraction fan in the bathroom did not work.
on the 1st night we went down to reception and begged to give us a room which we could sleep in as the air temp in side the room was over 30 c. the man at reception said it would be impossible to change room without paying the full amount all over again which was 59 euros per night. but we could not afford that so we asked if we could rent a fan and they said they will send someone up with one in 5 minutes.
10 minutes later we had a knock and security walked into the room and said they couldn't and went..

Anyway enough about the hotel as we will be here forever..

The local area we read in reviews was lovely........... how wrong could they be.. the area smelt worse than a public toilet. their was a market every day except Friday right outside our hotel which we had to walk though to get to the metro line which we didn't mind but once we got through the market there was people selling absolute rubbish from single odd socks to stolen/ broken phones and empty dvd cases and odd shoes that had obviously been taken out of a bin for them to sell.

The subway restaurant bellow was great and their was a guy that works the late shift by himself was quality but the mc donalds next door was small and the staff were rude and the food was horrible...


anyway to end my essay "lol" don't stay here but if you do. then definitely pay the extra for the luxury although i don't know what them rooms were like it cant be as bad as the budget..

The hotel was worth the money. Very clean and the people friendly. It is also close to Porte de clignancourt metro station. We were in Paris for 3 nights in July. The rooms don't have air conditioner so it was hot during the nights. The hotel is worth the money but the area outside the hotel was a little shady and dirty. If you plan on saving money ,then this hotel is good but I would look for a hotel in any other area the next time I visit Paris.

I was prepared for the location in which the hotel is situated (dodgy area), but I was expecting more from the hotel itself. The people at reception were generally not very helpful and one lady that works afternoon shift was pretty rude as well. The rooms are okay, except for the fact that the bathroom has been broken up into three parts and the shower door is see through glass at the bottom and top. The rooms are modern though. The breakfast is terrible and the only thing that is truly enjoyable was the croissants. The price is okay, but I did expect more. Overall I would rather spend a little more and get a decent hotel.

Cheap, clean, basic. Free wifi. Alright for a couple of nights stay if not spending too much time in room. Quite a distance out of Paris. Not the best area, alot of gypsies on the street, and rubbish everywhere outside.
