“Good beds, excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

The first thing to say is that this hotel is nowhere near the city centre (although you could get there easily by tram) and is located on an industrial estate near the motorway. Doesn't sound attractive but at 49 euros for a triple room I had no complaints. We needed to be near the university and it's good for that. The rooms are small with just enough room to get around the beds but are fine if you simply want somewhere to sleep. The beds were very comfortable. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. Breakfast was described as sumptuous and varied which is an exaggeration and a bit overpriced at 9.95 euros a head but they have a captive audience as far as breakfast is concerned. The hotel has a restaurant and bar. There is a Hippopotamus restaurant down the road. Very good value.

Room Tip: The hotel has triple and 4 bedded rooms but you can only book for 2 people occupancy on the accor.co...

This was our third stay at this hotel but first report,it is on the outskirts of Grenoble which maybe unsuitable for some but it was in the ideal place for the things we wanted to do. The rooms were spotlessly clean but could do with an update in the bathroom with having an over bath shower but thats just an observation. Breakfast was the usual good Ibis standard and they have their own restaurant which we ate it and was extremely good, also their own secure car park.

I think this would be a bit out of the way if you are travelling by public transport, by tram etc, you are in the university area but there was absolutely no-one around at the weekend, which might make people uneasy if they were walking or using the tram at night, but it's fine if you are in a car.

Usual unemotional French greeting (we had got used to these during our Easter tour of France) and the lady tried to put us in the 1st room on the ground floor right by reception and the main doors so we said no straightaway and asked for one as far away from reception and the lift as possible. We got one on the 2nd floor overlooking the car park, keep an eye on the car, can't be bad. Very quiet apart from a bit of noise upstairs scraping furniture. A good night's sleep, great view of mountains in the morning. Free wifi and free parking, great beds, usual shampoo/gel and hairdryer, it was a great place as a base to visit Grenoble. Didn't use restaurant/breakfast etc. Went to Carrefour and stocked up on picnic food and saved a fortune, no fridge in room so don't get anything perishable, but it made a change from fighting to find vegetarian food and saved a lot of stress.


Well up to standard. Recommendable

Room Tip: If you get one on the front you can see the mountains in the morning and keep an eye on your car.

We arrived in Grenoble at 11pm after watching Le Tour on Alpe D'Huez, with no hotel booked and no idea where to stay. We followed road signs to the Mecure in Grenoble. They were fully booked but started calling other Accor Group hotels in Grenoble until they came accross one with vacancies.

This Ibis is located on the edge of the city, in an industrial area. It was perfect for our needs - plenty of parking, rooms were basic but really clean and comfortable and we were charged a fair price, considering the time we turned up.

Thanks so much to the Ibis for accommodating us at such short notice.

Stayed here for 4 nights in the area on business.
This Ibis very clean and comfortable, and the staff especially helpful.
Room spotlessly clean with no issues what so ever. Breakfast fresh and plentiful, the standard breakfasts as in other Ibis hotels in the area.
Very handy links to Grenoble and beyond as very close to the motorway and the trams.
Parking safe and secure as the gates are closed after 10.30.
Would definately return to this hotel.
