stayed here for a single night. the room was clean and comfortable, en suite was fine. in a good location in portsmouth. for the price it is value for money. the only down side was that the tv remote wasn't particularly responsive at times.

Room Tip: non smoking if you should wish

Some years ago we stayed at an Ibis hotel in Bruges, Belgium, which was terrible. However, as we needed to save money, booking 3 rooms for my husband and I and various family members, we expected the worst. So this one came as a pleasant surprise - surprise being the operative word! We had booked on line and although we wanted 2 twin rooms and 1 single, all they showed us were "family" rooms with one bunk bed on top of a double bed.
So imagine how pleased we were to be shown to 2 very nice twin rooms, comfortable beds, clean, and large, albeit rather basic bathroom. Our son had the "single" room which turned out to be the double/bunk bed family room. No complaint from him then!
We stayed for 2 nights and the staff could not have been more helpful. Whatever we asked for - extra towels, pillows, were all delivered promptly and with a smile.
Just one complaint - the shower arrangement in the bathroom was rather primitive as the water drain was not adequate and the water went over the whole bathroom floor. Our young grand-daughters were particularly fussed about this.
However yes, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor. We had a top floor room which gave us at least some daylight, even if the vie...

My husband and I decided as the weather was good we would stay in Portsmouth for a night . He booked the hotel through booking.com but had an email
back in French to confirm . So we just presumed it was a French run company. However when we got to accommodation there was no reservation , it turned out in the end the booking.com had booked us our accommodation in ibis budget France Portsmouth not England . The girls on the desk that night couldn't have been more helpful sorting it all out for us.
The rooms are extremely clean no tea and coffee in rooms but you are able to purchase from a machine in reception .
No much parking close to hotel however you park across the road and get a pass from the reception to put in your car.
Will definitely return .

Very basic but with everything you need. We stayed there for two nights, if you are looking simply for a place to sleep in safe, basic surroundings then this is it. If you are looking for a more luxury experience, or are used to "normal" hotels then you will find this hard to adjust to.
