Hotel ibis budget Sheffield Arena
Ranked #30 of 53 Hotels in Sheffield
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

The room and the shower area are compact but very clean. It was great having access to wifi in the room which worked perfectly. The hotel served breakfast which was mediocre but good to have to a bite before leaving the hotel just to fill your appetite.

The location is not too bad as it is walking distance to a few restaurants but I would recommend renting a vehicle to be able to drive into Sheffield's city centre.

This hotel is great for backpackers as you'd most likely be out majority of the time and wouldn't require such fantastic amenities within the hotel but it may be too cramped for families.

Stayed: September 2013

Close to shops, places to eat, free WiFi and a reasonable price are the prerequisites for our family half term shopping trips and this hotel ticked all the boxes. Close to Meadowhall shopping centre, plenty of eateries close by, an on-site car park, close to the Arena and free WiFi in the rooms. The rooms are basic compared to the IBIS style hotels having a modular, some might say plastic feel, but perfectly fine for an overnight stay for less than £30 a night. The beds are firm which I personally like and some people might not like the rooms with a single bunk above the main double bed but again for multiple people sharing this is great value for money. As always reception staff friendly and would stay again.

Stayed in a triple room which had a double bed with bunk bed above. Nice enough room, small but clean and fresh. However, the shower is in the room and has a pretty transparent door, so not much privacy, and the beds were like concrete with one paper thin pillow each! It was very cheap, and handy after an afternoon and night at a beer festival next door - but take your own pillow! You get what you pay for.

Stayed in a twin room. Nice rooms, perfect for just staying overnight, especially if going to the arena. Quite far out from town but reasonably close to Meadowhall too.
Only problem was the shower was out in the room rather than in a separate bathroom... So could be a bit awkward depending on who you are staying with.
Door is made of frosted glass so isn't see-through but might make some feel uncomfortable. The shower was big enough to undress inside though so it was okay.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and so it was overall a nice stay.

Awful awful awful, the beds are like mortuary slabs, the staff were patronising there was 8 of us on a hen night and we got told we had come back to early, then we got told to go to bed as we was talking, we wasn't shouting or screaming we got told there was a premier inn across the road if we didnt like it. The security man needs re-training and the Staff need customer service training. Basically spend your money on a b+b or go to the premier Inn across the road we went to the premier Inn across the road for breakfast and got excellent service and we wasn't even staying there

absolutely awful hotel. We stayed for the night and wish we has paid a bit more and stayed at the premier inn opposite. the staff were very rude to us on a number of occasions and when we put a complaint in we were told to pay the extra and stay somewhere else then - very professional! The mattresses were very uncomfortable and the rooms were very small and poorly arranged. the shower opens out into the room its self, so if you are sharing with a friend its very awkward as there is no where to get dressed in private etc... just overall a terrible experience and we will be making a direct complaint.

Basic room with no complimentary tea/coffee which is a shame. However, the room was always clean and warm and I didn't want to get out of the shower as it was so nice!
Beds are comfortable and the staff were always very polite and professional (especially the night guy). I have so far stayed here 5 times for 3-5 nights at a time.
Very convenient for many places in Sheffield too.

Room Tip: Maybe avoid rooms on the ground floor with a window near the main doors...... noisy smokers in the e...
