We have stayed in better Ibis STANDARD hotels. The décor, other than the public rooms, is shabby to say the least. Bedroom carpet badly stained; poor quality of fitment of skirting boards etc. The loo sits in a small alcove in the shower room and is quite difficult to access. The pan is about 30cm (one foot) from the facing wall. which also holds the loo rolls dispenser!
If you thought it couldn't get worse, you haven't experienced the 'breakfast'. Dreadful. There is absolutely no attempt to make it look appetising. The ham and cheese is kept in a small fridge, along with the butter, which, quite naturally, is rock hard. And I mean rock hard. The fridge coldness negates the taste of the ham and cheese.The bread is all baguette type, mostly very crusty and chewy, and is not compatible with the toaster. We were there four nights and we are certain the remains of the bread/croissants etc. were just carried over to the next day (or two!) It was also difficult to navigate because of a pillar at the start of the breakfast bar, which literally meant you could not get past if someone was selecting some of the 'dishes'.
Very, very disappointing. We do find there can be substantial differences between Styles hotels. Some, as this Paris hotel, have minimalist breakfasts. Basically, bread, ham and cheese, plus he usual yoghurt/jams etc. Some have that, plus boiled eggs. Usually cold, but at least available. Some give the ability to boil your own. In addition, some Styles have all that plus scrambled eggs. We don't mind, AS LONG AS WE KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.
On this 10 day trip we stayed at the Hamburg Styles, very good. The Berlin, poor. Amsterdam, very good. Brussels very, very good.
