I won't rehash what all the other negative reviews have said, but they're all true -- smoke everywhere, rude staff, dirty rooms, jade merchants yelling and hocking up their lungs at all hours, prostitute cards under the door every night. It is located in a gritty neighborhood that happens to have a prime tourist spot in it. Unfortunately, that means constant traffic and touts at your doorstep day and night.
It's just a serious let-down, as I've been satisfied with every other experience at every Accor property where I've stayed elsewhere. Ibis is Accor's good budget brand, with clean, modern rooms and amenities, courteous staff and decent locations. See my reviews of Ibis properties in Seoul and Hong Kong to understand what they are like. This property, however, is neither well-located, well-staffed, clean or well-kept. And frankly, the shenanigans with the jade vendors and hooker cards makes it unsecured, to boot.
I'm almost certain that Accor managers have never been by to inspect this property, secret-shopper or undercover-boss style. Heck, I doubt the staff would do much to change things even with fair warning.
