This is a standard ibis hotel, functional, clean and value for money. The drawback was the parking arrangement which was a public underground park. As we didn't want to empty the car for one night, we left our belongings in the car. Fortunately, the car was intact the following day. This is the only reason I wouldn't say in this hotel in future. The staff were helpful and pleasant.

It is nice to experience something that exceeds your expectations .Frankly I couldn't find much to whine about.a possible 0700 bell going off in the distance might be it.
The staff were genuine in there desire to help. Its location is ideal as it is a stone's throw from the main square yet far removed from the overflow noise. The rooms are clean, beds comfy, and mine looked out over a quaint courtyard. I was especially impressed with the continental breakfast in the morning which was excellent value. Book ahead and save a bit of money.One should not book elsewhere .

Room Tip: Face the courtyard.

Main Square Festival this weekend and a last minute change of plan meant there was a rush to find a hotel room in Arras this weekend. All hotels were fully booked but Ibis had a late cancellation. Have never stayed in an ibis hotel but definitely had pre-conceptions. This hotel, one block behind the Grand Place, has a modern and definitely youthful feel, and the welcome at reception was more genuine than many of the top hotels I've stayed around the world.

My room was, let's say, economic with use of space, but spotlessly clean, so dumped my bags and went off to the festival, all day knowing that I had somewhere central to stay, but would I have a good night's sleep?! I mean, it's a Ibis!!

Well, I can testify that I had one of the best nights sleeps I've had in ages.. The bed was ridiculously firm with the added benefit of being a small hotels with windows you can open.

Reception staff couldn't have been more helpful sorting out taxis for me, and sat in reception watching how a team of 2-3 people managed checkouts, breakfast and early check ins on one of the busiest weekends of the year in Arras.

Great Job!

the previous reviewers have covered the main points about this hotel. I will add that it is cramped; the Reception area is small as is the breakfast room. Also the service at breakfast was a bit hit and miss. We were constantly asking for replenishment of both food and utensils. I am 5ft. tall and couldn't reach quite a lot of the food! The rooms are also small, even by IBIS standards, but clean with comfortable beds and good linen. A second pillow was provided immediately . We did have a chapter of accidents, no liquid in the soap dispensers, a door lock that didn't always work, a leak on the air conditioning and a dodgy toilet flush. Fortunately the Manager spoke excellent English and we both treated each disaster lightheartedly. He did offer us a change of room but we were settled in.

In spite of the above I would recommend this hotel. Its location is convenient and it is easy to find somewhere to eat nearby; it is generally quiet, the staff are friendly and speak English, its clean, the breakfast is more than adequate. just don't expect to swing anything, especially not the cat in any part of the building .
