“Just the basics but the price is right”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Good location only a short bus ride (3 km) from the airport with the bus stop right in front of the hotel. It is one block off the beach and an easy 2 km walk to the heart of the city. The rooms are small and very basic with no extras and no view but they are clean. Breakfast is optional and like the rooms it is sparse and basic.

The hotel is old and not very clean. The staff doesn't make any effort to speak other language than french. The parkings around the hotel are expensive and is not possible to park on the streets. Nearby there's almost anything, so you have to take a bus/car to eat and do stuff.

This was my first and I pray it is my last stay in a 'budget' hotel.
I did not know the 'budget' concept of the Ibis, I misguided myself by the Ibis name of the Accorhotels group.

This hotel is not at all suitable for families.
It is probably meant for bachelors that only need a place to sleep after partying all day and night.

+++++Negative:
The following is NOT available in the room:
-no phone (to call the reception, you have to step out and use a common handset at the passage -- i never tried it though, but i saw the handset there)
-no safe
-no fridge

They do not:
-change the bed sheets during your stay (we stayed with kids for 7 days with the same bed sheets)

+++++Positive:
-there are elevators
-there is free WiFi
-the location is good, beach nearby and half way to airport (estimated 30EUR by taxi)
-there are several shops around to buy food and some restaurants
-you are invited to pay on a daily basis at arrival, you do not need to pay the full cost of your stay.


I guess it is the 'concept' of budget that we missed here when we booked the hotel, confused with the Accorhotels flag. We could have taken other hotels for similar cost with better family standards.

Located just 2km from the main part of town. A very easy walk of one block/road to get to the sea front. Has a small carrefour close by and other small shops. Also opposite the hospital.
Reception is clean and tidy and staff are decent. Rooms are spotless and contain a double bed and a bunk bed above (for a twin room). There is a tv in the room with a desk and chair as well as a stool.
Bathroom is spacious enough and doesn't feel cramped.

Above all this hotel is perfect for a budget and also has free wifi.
There are bus routes that take you into town as well.
