I stayed at the Ibis in September 2012 and again in January 2013. The hotel has friendly staff, who are really keen to assist in any way to make your stay more comfortable.
The rooms are a perfect size, comfortable beds although the pillows are a bit crap and unsubstantial. The bedsheets are very clean and crisp but the additional blanket was really old and knobbly, could be looked after a bit better. There is also a choice of a smoking or non-smoking room.
I remembered their food being much better in September. this past visit the breakfast was disappointing, I usually only have 2 small croissants and a cup of tea. The croissants were bone dry and hard as they had been in the warmer too long. I loved their Margharita pizza in September, but when I ordered it this time it was tasteless as was the salad dressing on the greek salad. You actually have to go down to the 3rd floor and get your food as there is no room service (reduces costs I guess), but not a huge inconvenience.
I love that the hotel has wifi all over (great when you are a traveller). The access card system makes the hotel feel safe and secure. It is also in a great location, next to a 24 hour supermarket and two shopping centres opposite, and loads of shops and restaurants on the same side.
