“Good central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

The hotel was right next to Millennium Square and a short walk to the harbour. There were a number of bars and restaurants close by with a good atmosphere. Staff were helpful and the room was clean and modern. Bit of trouble with TV reception, but that was the only issue we had. Overall good, clean and excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend as no frills, budget accommodation in a great central location.

Was not sure what to expect from the hotel, only paid £21 each for the room and £7.95 for breakfast but was very surprised when we arrived. The reception was very spacious and stylish so was the bar area. I awaited the view at our room with similar experience, nice sized room and again clean and modern, bathroom had a great shower as well. Stayed with a friends and one friend brought her dog as it was a dog friendly hotel, so an even better bonus for her.

Breakfast was well worth the money, lots of choice for all to eat hot and cold so really impressed with the hotel. I would happily recommend and in a great location on Millennium square close to the waterfront and harbour areas

It's near museums and other places of interest. Bigger than what you expect bedrooms. Very clean. I think the building is still new.

I just had a bad experience in the evening but its not because of the hotel itself. I went down to check if I can get a drink but nobody from reception is at front desk. There were 5 drunk lads near the bar and I didn't like the attention they are giving so I went back to my room and didn't bother to get my welcome drink.

I requested for a late check out and I was informed that the hotel does not entertain late check out for gold accorhotel card holders. I think its a hotel policy but I am not sure. That's alright. We had a wonderful time at the harbour.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing millennium square

Stayed for one night on Sunday 24th and it wasnt the best night's sleep. We stayed on the third floor and it was so noisy, we had other guests drunk banging on our door through out the night and shouting up and down the corriders. I understand staying over on a bank holiday weekend there would be some noise but maybe in future the hotel should but business travellers on a different floor to leisure guests?
We stayed in room 326 and there was a slight smell of Cigarette smoke.

Usually love the Ibis hotels but this one was a let down. I travel to Bristol a lot but not sure If I would stay here again.

The location of this hotel is excellent for shopping exploring and nights out in Bristol. The rooms are clean and modern. Nothing fancy but what it offers is better than your average budget hotel.
Just off the major bus routes and not far from the train station. Would stay again and recommend.
