I have stayed at the Ibis on numerous occasions as I visit my sister and family in Portsmouth. There are some reviews that say fairly negative things about this city centre hotel but in my experience I find it a good hotel with excellent staff.
The rooms are not huge, they are however clean and have everything you need for a short break. The bathrooms are compact but unless you want to line dance in the bathroom then again this is adequate for a short stay.
It is close to all area's of the city, a taxi is easy to call from the hotel and most shops etc, as well as the main train station is very close by. There is a Spar shop a few minutes away for bottled water or the odd thing you may need.
Breakfast is always excellent and plentiful. I have stayed in far more expensive hotels and not had such a great breakfast. The cafe/bar is good for a snack, staff are happy to arrange a sandwich or food and you can take it to your room no problems.
Don't expect a view, if you want a view then pay more and stay at Southsea but end up spending money on taxi's to the city centre.
I travel to many places and dont always leave reviews but on reading a few negative ones today about the Ibis, I wanted to offer my own perspective.
