“Great staff and location in Boulogne”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Just across the street from the old town lets you walk to some nice picturesque restaurants. No need to take breakfast in the hotel as you can get it in the old town. Secure parking is available. Street train available in the old town that takes you to and from the beach for €5. Staff are really friendly and helpful.

Typical Ibis with small functional rooms. Wouldn't want to stay here for more than 1-3 nights though. Rooms are getting to the point where they need a refurbishment with the chipboard coating chipped off in a few places and towels need replacing.

We would stay here again when on a weekend booze and food run.

Room Tip: Check if the funfair is on. If so, ask for a car park facing room. Ask for a high room to avoid an...

We had a very pleasant night at this hotel. The staff were charming and friendly, the room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The shower was good and the bed was comfortable. Secure hotel parking. A good choice for a short stay. We would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel.

I have stayed a number of times at this IBIS hotel. The location is ideal, being just outside the fortified city walls. A minute's walk takes you to the street where restaurants abound, these serve decent (if touristy) meals at a good price.
The hotel itself is a typical IBIS in terms of room layout and facilities (i.e. relatively limited facilities which include a fairly pricy bar / restaurant). Breakfast was surprisingly civilised and has a good choice. Rooms will be noisy if you leave the windows open as the location is directly on a very busy roundabout with traffic throughout the day and night. If you think this might be a problem avoid (I kept the window closed and it was very quiet).
The real reason for the review is to praise the staff (especially the receptionist Emanuelle). I had managed to book for the wrong night and arrived a day earlier than they expected. I was quite flustered by this but is was dealt with in a most professional and helpful manner - I cannot praise the attitude enough. Service with a smile!

The location is perfect for the quaint old time but a very long walk to the beach, take the tourist train which take you to the beach or your car, a mini cab will cost you £10.00 each way. The room was the smallest I have ever seen, the decor was tired and a bit on the tatty side, overall the hotel could do with a update.

Room Tip: The rooms round the back overlooking the car park are quieter.

This was my third stay here as it is perfectly placed for a one or two night stay either for a shirt trip for shopping or an overnight to break the onward journey. It is only 20 minutes from the Eurotunnel and immediately across the road from the old town with the restaurants and bars.
The staff are always friendly and helpful and the rooms are kept very clean. Beds are comfortable and the bathroom functional if small. Be warned there is no air conditioning and with the exceptionally hot weather this summer, the noise from outside can be loud with the windows wide open. We have stayed here in August each time and the funfair has been directly across from the hotel and wasn't a problem in previous years as the music finished earlier, but this year it did go on until midnight.
Breakfast was basic but good and kept topped up so there was plenty of fresh bread and pastries with a good choice of teas and coffee which can be taken away.
We would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
