“An excellent place to stay on a budget in Boulogne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Have been staying at this hotel for the last 10 years for an overnight every six months or so when we do shopping trips to France and Belgium.Always excellent value, and we have seen the refurbishment undertaken when the name changed. The breakfast is really good value - have as much as you like. Beds are comfortable and the rooms very well designed. Compared to a Travelodge (the closest equivalent in UK - apart from Ibis Budget in UK), it is about the same though different in some aspects.
This Hotel is also excellently placed being only a short walk from the main square with an excellent choice of restaurants.
The only negatives, which is why I have slightly downrated the rooms, is that there are no coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms, and the drinks machine in the lobby is expensive and what you get is just not french standard. Also, since the upgrade the TV does not have any UK channels - eg BBC Word Service, and there is only one German channel. This is despite the fact that every time we visit this hotel there are at least three other parties of UK people there.

Absolutely disgusting smell. You can smell cigarretes everywhere. I think is a smokers' hotel. At least, they could use air fresheners(they are not very expensive...). Really, made me sick. I would never stay again. If You pay peanuts, You get monkeys...

A very convenient hotel for centre and waterfront of Boulogne. It also has a free car park at the side of the hotel, Boulogne has a good market nearby which trades on saturdays and wednesdays. The fish market is open each morning (some stalle afternoons also) selling fish straight off the boats. Nautica is within walking distance along the front.

If you have driven half way across Europe and need to sleep before your train or boat, then this will do very nicely. No better, no worse than the other ETAP's, what you get is what you pay for, but the beds are comfortable (even the overhead bunk) and you have en suite and good cheap breakfast and it's pet friendly. Absolutely excellent on a tight budget.

As others have noted, this hotel is now branded as Ibis Budget, so bear that in mind if looking for signage to the hotel (although some signs in the town do still confusingly refer to the Etap name)

We found overselves staying Boulogne somewhat unexpectedly on our way down to Normandy for New Years Eve - car trouble meant that our Breakdown company arranged for a nearby hotel whilst we were waiting for the car to be fixed.

The hotel is the same as others in the Etap / Ibis Budget chain so I knew what to expect - basic "no frills" but comfortable room which is what we got.

The bed was comfortable and a good nights sleep was had. Shower was warm with decent water pressure. No noise was heard from neighbouring rooms.

Breakfast was nothing to write home about, bread, cheese, yoghurts and tea / coffee but then this is typical for many hotels in France.

The free wi-fi in the hotel was a good touch as well.

If you need a basic but comfortable hotel in the area then you could do far worse than choose this one.
