“Excellent value”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

After a very positive experience of an Ibis Budget in Berlin last month, we thought we'd splash out and go "up market" this time and book a non-budget Ibis for our trip to France.

As we had driven from England, the free parking offered by this hotel was one of the determining factors influencing our choice. Situated on quite a wide, though not very busy dual carriageway, this hotel is set back from road in pleasant surroundings. It appears to be a very new building, and this is reflected in the decor of both the lobby/restaurant area as well as the rooms.

We were greeted by very friendly young staff whose English was far better than our French, so we gave in and restricted our linguistic abilities to the occasional "merci".

The room was spotlessly clean, and decorated in very pleasing pastel colours. The bed was huge and comfortable, and the bathroom consisted of a good shower, toilet and green washbasin. There was a hair dryer and two plastic beakers wrapped in cellophane.

We missed not having a kettle and the facility to make a cup of coffee, but maybe that only comes with the next tier up in the Ibis Hotel hierarchy.

The TV picked up BBC Worldwide on channel 40, and the WiFi worked well. The window looked over the car park at the rear, and across to a large, old residence some distance away. Most importantly, it was very quiet at night.

The hotel is situated just outside the main town, about a 10 minute walk away if you cross the road and walk along the pavement/cycle track (past a Lidl store). This might be an inconvenience for people with mobility problems, though pavement is asphalt all the way.

The "eat all you want" breakfasts downstairs need not be booked, and cost 10 Euros. This is rather expensive, but does allow you to "stoke up" ahead of a busy day's sightseeing!

All in all, a very, very pleasant experience and I shall have no hesitation staying here next time I visit Honfleur. Highly recommended.

This hotel was an excellent value for money choice in Honfleur. We booked after a positive Ibis experience elsewhere and were similarly pleased in this hotel.

The location of the hotel is around ten minutes walk from the town centre, and is easy to find if driving. It had ample parking also, albeit it did look very busy on the Saturday night.

We stayed on the top floor and heard no noise whatsoever, from either inside or outside the hotel. The room was of a modest size, and had nice decor as well as a walk in wardrobe and Tv. A minor annoyance was the lack of a kettle in the room and also only two plug sockets including the Tv. Free wifi was however an added bonus we had not expected in what is essentially a budget hotel.

The bed was spacious and comfy, and the bathroom was of a suitable size, including a power shower and a hair dryer also.

I did not eat the breakfast although it compromised of a variety of cereals, fruits, yoghurt, crepes and other nice products.

Given the fact this hotel cost less money than our dinner on both nights in the town it is a fantastic price, and its central location, lack of noise, and good levels of service and comfort, made it an excellent choice: I would certainly stay here again.

First rate hotel, very pleased with Ibis Honfleur! Very helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Our cleaning lady deserves a special mention, she was very pleasant and helpful. My wife and I are looking forward to our next visit to Honfleur, and of course we will be staying at Hotel Ibis! The walk into town was not to far, and if you cross the road outside hotel its footpaths into town all the way.

great option for staying in Honfleur. Close to the picturesque harbour and convenient for parking just outside hotel - note need to feed parking meter- but not expensive
good, clean inexpensive hotel, basic rooms with little storage space, good breakfast and helpful staff - worth a try!

Generally, I tend to look for hotels in the old parts of cities and towns we visit. However, when I shopped online for Honfleur hotels, I took a look at this Ibis since we'd be driving and it had easy access to town and free parking. It was a good decision. Some people walk from the Ibis to town, but we ended up driving in and finding parking in one of the several big lots. On a very busy weekend, that could be a drawback.
Our room was immaculate, roomy, and very quiet. Comfortable bed. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was great and served in a bright, contemporary, and cheerful breakfast area. It was a good value as well as a higher quality level than what is commonly found in hotels of this price range in the U.S. And while I'd usually rather skip coffee than have it from a machine, my husband and I both found their machine more than satisfactory for a morning latte. We came away very satisfied with this Ibis.

If you know Ibis hotels, then this conforms to their good standards. Rooms are clean and bright and the shower room 'pod' works well. On the one occasion that we had a problem, the staff sorted it out immediately; you can't ask for more than that. The one disappointing aspect for us was that the breakfast serving area was much too small to accommodate the number of guests so there was a sort of rugby scrum. It took a long time to work through the queue to get some coffee, but the big disappointment was that the coffee was from a machine (all too common these days) and completely undrinkable. This is really sad, because the all the other constituent parts of the breakfast were good. I like Ibis hotels and would certainly stay here again, but I would walk into town for a coffee.
