Ibis La Ciotat
Ranked #3 of 14 Hotels in La Ciotat
Reviewed 21 May 2016 via mobile

The hotel is located with an industrial park of mainly offices, so the hotel is mainly targeted to business guests not tourists. However there is a sun terrace with a small pool which has amazing views over the bay into the med. the area is quiet and clean especially in the evenings.

The room is on the small side but contains a large double bed which is very comfortable, slightly on the soft side. Desk and small open wardrobe in a corner which is created by a couple of small fixed partitions. Again this is slightly small but would easily hold a week or 2's clothes.

Bathroom is slightly cramped but that's because the shower is HUGE (you could easily get 3 or 4 people in there without a problem), the pressure is excellent and plenty of hot water.

Only downside really on the room is no tea/coffee facility or room safe.

There's an onsite restaurant which does mainly grilled steaks and burgers, however they are all tasty and decent portion sizes. Breakfast has limited pastry, bread meats and cheese - nothing special but nice enough.

All the staff were happy, friendly and efficient.

Overall a nice but standard Ibis hotel, I'd be happy to stay again.

This hotel has a very pleasant outside terrace. It also has a Courtpaille restaurant annexed to it, which provides a good food at reasonable prices. However, if you like fish, there is not very much choice. There is only 1 fish entrée and 2 mains. Courtpaille seems to specialise in meat grilled over an open fire. Ibis rouge hotels, also provide a 24h bar and snack service, which is something that Mercure (a higher brand) does not provide.

The problem with the undersized rooms and bathroons could be reduced, if Ibis fitted shelving to the walls of the bedroom and bathroom. There is barely enough wardrobe space for the clothes of 1 person, and barely enough floorspace. Nor is there any furniture that would provide storage space for belongings. There is virtually no ledge space in the bathroom for things like toiletries, cosmetics...etc... If Ibis fitted some small shelves or ledges, the problem would be alleviated somewhat.

It is a shame that none of the rooms have balconies, but this would not be normal for Ibis. If you stay here, try to get an even numbered room on a high floor. You will then have a view of the bay.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms on high floors give good view of the bay, but may command a price premium.

This hotel is located on the West side of Avenue de la Montrane to the north of the A50. It is just south of the roundabout with Avenue des Tamaris (which is the quickest way to get onto the motorway.) Since it is set back from the road, it is easy to miss.
The hotel is about 4km to the north of the harbour and town centre. It is not located near any shops or restaurants.

There is plenty of parking at the hotel. It is a clean, modern building which us well maintained. The bathrooms are "pods" which have been inserted into each room: a little small but far better quality than many of a similar design. There is free WIFI available with relatively late checkout.

The restaurant has a reasonable menu, but not everything on it is available all the time. Breakfast is a buffet with some nice choices, but things do run out and are not replenished automatically.

The Reception staff are friendly and helpful.

The place is clean, decent and the staff is very convenient but the room is small, the bathroom too, the location is awful. There's a small pool and a grocery store near the hotel. Understand we rent at high season but the price we pay is way too much for what we got... The restaurant and the bar is way too expensive. There's free wifi.

I knew what to expect by Ibis brand so there is no disappointment in terms of rooms, facilities, etc. (the only minus is for the amount of plugs available in the room.. nowadays when all have tablets, phones and other equipment you would expect more places to charge them!). We were welcomed by a very nice lady at the reception. Plus for that! And her fluent English! We were told we can eat at the restaurant which closes at 11pm. We decided to with that. 3 waiters were serving us. None speaking English.. (despite a couple of words...)First waitress let us sit where we wanted and then the other came and asked us to choose between 2 tables! That was quite rude and I already felt like I am disturbing! Despite asking to bring the main after my friend finishes her entree, she was given both almost at once.. We were asked twice for a room number (by 2 different waiters. That is called communication... ) My salad was dry and not edible so when I wanted to order something else I was told I can only get a dessert as at 22:30 it is too late for anything else. At 22:55 we were told "bye bye" by the stuff and were left with dirty empty dishes at the table. I actually laughed at it then, but really... I expect a bit more respect from the stuff. So with that experience I hope I will not have to stay at this hotel again and I am glad that this is not a standard within Ibis brand!
