This hotel is ideally situated in the centre of Bristol. Although it may not be as good as some of the flashier hotels, for the price, surely nobody could complain. We certainly aren't.
Not having visited Bristol for quite a long time, we were not exactly sure where the hotel was located. I had printed out the location map beforehand, but found that as the local streets do not have any signs, we were a little confused. After a phone call to the hotel, with directions from a friendly staff member, we realised that we were literally just around the corner.
All we were after was a good, cheap hotel for one night. The Ibis certainly did us for the night. Bristol's main shopping area was within a easy stroll, which meant we did not have to pay any more extravagant parking charges.
With the restaurant and bar being renovated, we looked elsewhere for our evening meal and breakfast. That was no problem, as the harbourside area has so many cafes to choose from. We found that the noise from the renovations did not disturb us, but as often in hotels, noisy guests outside kept us awake at times. Some people have no consideration for others.
One of the two mugs in the room was cracked, so I phoned the reception for a replacement. This took some time, but eventually the receptionist hinself brought us a new mug. We thought the checkout time of midday was good. This allowed us to do just that little bit more shopping in Broadmead. The other side of the coin was that we were unable to check in before midday. As the receptionist held our bags for us, that was no problem.
One thing we did think could be improved was the information in the room.The A3 sized folding card in the room had very little information written on it. We both found the free wifi good, even if a little slow. We had expected to have to pay for wifi, as with most Australian Accor hotels. We also found the round shape bathroom to be different.
