Easy access from the train station. Sketchy area around the station (as expected). I was with my family and we didn't feel too safe being out at night in the area. Room was clean and a decent size. The best part of our stay was the restaurant Narvik. We went there 3 times during our 4 nights stay. Great patio, friendly service, and excellent food. The hotel was walking distance to Vieux-port (15-20 minutes), and many cafes out that way.Not sure if I would stay here again, but it did have great value for what was paid.
One night stay, room was standard Ibis size which is perfect for a couple & child. It was quiet, very clean and well-stocked w/toiletries & linen. Beds were comfortable (huge double bed and separate fold-out) and the TV offered various international channels. Reception staff were friendly, and offered luggage-drop prior to check-in which was appreciated. Exceptional value for money all-round.
Nice place, good breakfast and quiet. Booked through Deutsche bahn and it was remarkably cheap. The staff are attentive and welcoming. The hotel runs a bistro and we were able to get a late dinner. Arrived late by train so the location just beside the train station is excellent 👌
First, the hotel is just outside the station- less than 2 minutes walk. second, the entry into the hotel is as seen in the pix. little walk through and people sitting and enjoying the silence. lobby is friendly and welcoming. there is restaurant inside with lively TV/music. receptionists are welcoming and checkin was fast. nice corridors on the 2nd floor and the room for three was spacious. a sofa cum bed was comfortable. window overlooking the parking lot. gives privacy. from the hotel one can take a metro ticket 5.20 euros for 24 hours and go anywhere. the breakfast is part in restaurant and outdoors - the latter is heavenly. little fruit and vegetable plants. very good fair- detox water, croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, tea, coffee, fresh orange juice you can make for self,...good for vegetarians too. would recommend to everyone. only positives for this hotel and it is well priced. in night one can jsut sit in open and enjoy the silence. Go for it.…
I am admirer of Ibis concept of practical hotels located near train stations .. compact room sizes without much compromise. This hotel has excellent location and you can see trains and platforms from the room window. Check in was super quick. Rooms are nice with fresh Towels and nice bedsheets as well as pillows. Wifi is also good. However, drinking water is a big issue . After all how much water you can buy and bring from outside . Me and my wife consume 3 to 5 litres of water a day. Ibis does not provide water in the rooms nor they have any water or ice dispenser. They don’t even give electric kettles in the room to make tea and coffee. This is such a basic thing. They may not give tea coffee sachets but kettles are a must. We carry our own tea coffee and even cups. I visited the bar several times to get drinking water and hot water for tea coffee. The staff did give but with a poker face. For the lack of this basic facility I have reduced 2 stars.…
We stayed here because of the convenience to the train station. I wish we’d gone on to a different place despite our early train. The hotel staff overall was friendly on arrival. Not so much in the later evening however. Our non-smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke and we changed rooms. It’s noisy and there’s absolutely no air circulation. They had no portable fans and actually told me to just open my window. We did and were forced to listen to screaming men and noise from the station all night. The bed was relatively comfortable however their “queen” bed is two twins pushed together with a gap in the middle. The pillows are hard and dense and they had no extras available. You’re provided with 2 thin old towels and a mat. No hand towels. We’re not picky travelers but honestly there’s no way this is a 3 star hotel. The restaurant is an absolute joke. Our worst meal in France was a cold slab of “burger” and a rock hard bun. When I mentioned this to the waiter he shrugged. I slapped my bun on the table and tried to stab it for the comedy. He offered to bring me another piece of bread. I declined. Don’t waste your time eating there… you’re more likely to get a better burger at MacDos in the station! 😂 .. seriously. We needed a plug extension in the room to plug in a C-Pap machine and phone charger at the same time since there’s only one outlet in room. They had extras and handed me a filthy, sticky one .. which gave me an indication of how things are behind the scenes, sadly. (See picture) I find it interesting that the Covid protocols are listed here yet never saw anyone actively cleaning and the outlet adapter certainly shows lack of cleanliness. We won’t return here and frankly we’re getting tired of Ibis coming up short. There’s no excuse fir dirty. This place needs a very deep cleaning from top to bottom.…
This is supposed to be a reasonably priced hotel but at €141.00 it’s nothing of the sort. When we arrived the receptionist was quite Curt in asking me to put my mask on, which I did. However, we asked for a premier room and got a basic room with a pull down sofa. (No Coffee or Tea in the room) The air-conditioning hardly worked but the bed was very comfortable. I’m sorry Ibis, but I have paid a lot less and got a lot more. This hotel needs a complete refurbishment and it’s staff retrained. The rooms are worth around €60.00 and until it’s been upgraded will never stay here again.
Yes we are returning after a happy trip in July. Staff are friendly, especially the breakfast waitress and evening reception staff. ROOM PERFECTLY CLEAN WITH GOOD VENTILATION. Facilities to store baggage for a late train journey. pRICES VERY COMPETITVE 6WHY LOOK ELSEWHERE; COVID PRECAUTIONS EXCELLENT; Thank you all.rrp
We did not have any problem with the hotel. We had problem with the area. There are rats running around the railway station and the rest area during the night, till you cross them to the harbor. Breakfast was good, there is a garden but unfortunate they do not water the plans. It is sad to eat breakfast surrounded with dead plants.
The staff wore hearts on their shirts but they definitely weren't empathetic. I had issues on check-in after a long day. The location next to the train station and baggage storage was the only plus. Oh and the beds were super comfy!
