I'm currently doing a solo tour of France (excluding Paris) together with my small dog and am staying at an Ibis Hotel in each city including Dijon, Grenoble, Montpellier, Toulouse & Tours. I've found Ibis Hotels to offer exceptional value and always have a fabulous central (& safe!) location. Ibis Grenoble Centre is no exception. Located just off the main central square of this beautiful city, it's convenient for walking through the historic old town, browsing interesting shops and having hundreds of exceptional restaurants and brasserie from which to choose. There are several trams that stop just outside the hotel entrance including one that goes to the central train station (two stops). There's' even a FNAC next door!
The entrance is somewhat off-putting since there's just a small sign signaling a tiny soul-less lounge area with an elevator taking you up to the reception area. But from there it's all OK with three floors of rooms all simple yet efficient and always spotlessly clean.
I saw where the Grenoble Ibis Styles Hotel is located, their somewhat "upscale" hotel division. It's located near the train station in a no-man's land of kabob stands and parking garages. Plus the city is building a new tram line which is right outside so there's lots of construction noise. I wouldn't recommend staying at the Ibis Styles in Grenoble - you're much better off staying at the "regular" Ibis Hotel - and you'll save at least 25% by doing so. Also, I've learned to ALWAYS book an Ibis Hotel room directly through their website since the savings offered there - especially when booking 20 days in advance - are significant.
