The Ibis chain is well known and when booking a room you know it's going to be of a certain standard
This one was not. The window does not open an inch, there is a sign saying that they are not allowed to be opened. There is no fan or air con, so the room is very stuffy, Worst nights sleep I've ever had at a hotel
Budget. At 143 francs a night it certainly is not !
The shower door does not seal very we'll at all so water does get everywhere, not the end of the world but worth a mention
Again. For me never !
I did point this all out to the excellent guy on reception. He said the windows are not allowed to be opened. But could not give a reason. He stated that there is a small vent in the wall that allows air to circulate which is the only means of letting air into the room
I know it's a bad time for the swiss bankers but even they have stopped jumping out of the windows by now !
