Ibis Budget Hotel Leicester
Ranked #21 of 41 Hotels in Leicester
Reviewed 24 December 2013

I stayed here after a Christmas night out in Leicester. The staff were extremely helpful, ordered me a taxi and genuinely seemed to care how I was. As a lone female staying in a hotel I felt very safe. The room was clean and had everything I needed. It was basic but it was £27!! Cheaper than a taxi ride home. I'd stay again!

A pre-booked deal here cost me just £27.

The room was spotless, warm and well insulated from the traffic noise, everything worked fine, including the TV and the shower was actually better than most.

I paid twenty seven pounds for this.

The staff were very helpful and polite and the location is easy to find with local facilities a short drive away. If your needs are basic, it's pretty perfect.

Did I mention that it only cost £27? Amazing value.

Booking was easy, arrived relatively late and the manager sorted out the room without any fuss. Room is a little bit basic, and the only comment is that there is only one 13 A power socket in the room.
Breakfast is fine and good value for money

Easy access to the main roads and a good place for a short stopover.

Booked this via Accorhotels, and got a great deal for less than 20pounds. We arrived tired from Birmingham, and this was purely a stopover before our return to London. This is really a business hotel, and is located within a rest stop / services area. We bypassed Leicester to access the hotel, which is quite confusing as the roundabout has a sudden and narrow turn into the rest area.
Pros
- The request for an extra pillow and mat was dealt with quickly upon check in.
- Room was comfy and cozy. Can't complain about the hard mattress, as we were just too tired and perhaps its good for the back!
- The layout of the room is similar to the Ibis Budget Birmingham, so it expected for the budget range.
- The manager, Maze was really amazing as he helped me print out our boarding passes free of charge saving me the PC and print charge.
- Free and speedy wifi
- The 5 pound breakfast was real value for money, as we checked out the cafes at the service area, and found that it was not up to par and Hamilton's & KFC were closed. There was cereal, bread and the works which set you up really well for the day.
Cons
- There was hole in the toilet door, as this appeared to not shut properly resulting in some previous mishap. Perhaps this should be seen to as it detracted from the overall look of the room
Ticked all the boxes, and found the staff very helpful and friendly. Recommended for no frills and value for money.

Room Tip: Try and get a ground floor room for heavy bags

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts about your recent stay at Ibis Budget Leicester.

It was a pleasure to read your positive feedback in regards to the hotel being clean, comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful in accomodating your kind request on arrival, including myself for printing the boarding passes for you. I am also glad that you enjoyed our continental breakfast which was value for money in comparison to the other cafes/service station. I am sincerely sorry about the missed Maintenance issue, clearly an oversight on our behalf which rest assured has been looked in to.

My Team and I very much appreciate your kind words, and we’re glad to have been a part of your visit. We look forward to welcoming you back to Ibis Budget hotel Leicester in the future.
