“Etap on Top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

I stayed in the Etap Leicester again. This is a freindly budget hotel, room was clean as usual no complaints, air conditioning is great for the price as have stopped in dearer hotels without it.

This was a pretty good nights sleep!

Pros
CLEAN!!!!!!!!!!!!, (our main priority), Cheap, close to our destination, very pleasant staff, lift to all floors, ample parking, continental breakfast available (we did not have any). Excellent working hot shower, small bar of hand soap and 2 towels in room. We slept very well. Was quiet.

Cons
Other reviews had described it as a prison cell - and yes it was small, very green painted walls, and had a small window that only opened a fraction. No hair-drier. The loo was in a "cupboard" (well it felt like it), the room had only one electric socket, no tea and coffee making facilities - But having read previous comments I brought our own travel kettle and coffee so that was no problem. I do not use a hair-dryer so again that was no problem. You only spend a short time in the loo - so again no problem.

In summery although the cons are stated they did not impact too much on our stay and we would recommend you staying here for one night - we would come back again - so enjoy!

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts about your recent stay at ibis budget hotel Leicester.

I'm pleased that you found the hotel to be clean, value for money, ideal location, and a great shower. I will relay your kinds comments to the relevant departments accordingly. Ibis Budget (fomerly Etap) hotels are a fairly new concept to the Uk and are not one that everyone is familiar with therfore the layout of the room different, practical and functional as well as the product concept.

We appreciate all feedback very much and the team and I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

I think that this hotel is fantastic value for money!!! the room whilst small is perfect for what is needed and spotlessly clean. shower is spacious and is quite powerful - and again immaculately clean. there is no denying the beds are firm but that would be my preference anyway. zero complaints on traffic noise which is surprising considering the location, and the receptionist - absolutely fantastic - could not have been more helpful and polite. i will definitely be returning and i am so glad i came accross this place!

Stayed at this hotel again as it is such good value. Room was quiet although on the car park, it was clean and tidy, and the brealfast (which is extra) was good value. Staff very friendly (as usual).

We stayed overnight at this conveniently located motel. The accomodation is functional, well thought out, practical, easy to find and park with helpful staff. It is clean and tidy.No frills but what do you expect for the sensible price you pay. All in all real value for money and we would certainly recommend.
