Ibis Nice Centre Gare

Reviewed 17 May 2013

We have always found Ibis centre gare to be a hotel at the top of its game until this visit. They seem to have lost he plot and our stay was disappointing. On arrival we asked for a smoking room as I had requested at booking but was told that none were available (no sweat this happens!) so I asked if a smoking room would become available later in our stay and that we were happy to move if so. The receptionist told us that it was the rest of the week that was the problem as they had a smoking room for our first night but not on subsequent nights! I tried logic to explain that if a smoking room was available now then we should have that and that whoever wanted the smoking room the following nights could be told on their arrival that no smoking rooms were available ( as indeed we had been told already). This approach did not seem successful and it was only after being spoken with by the manager that logic prevailed and we got the room. Breakfast, which has always been very good, was without cheese - a small point but very difficult to understand when cheese has been such a breakfast staple with Ibis for so many years! Is this a new corporate decision? Our air conditioning did not work (but a small issue at this time of year) but overall the standard of service was distinctly lacking - no smiles from staff who all looked a bit fraught! Perhaps the economy has got to them all! I will be less inclined to use Ibis in future?

We weren't expecting the Ritz but paid 95 euro to stay here one night & the bed stank!

We didn't really realise this until the early hours but genuinely the bed smelled really bad. I appreciate it is a hotel & they have all sorts of guests but that is not acceptable.

The welcome from reception was adequate but that's all.

The food was acceptable. There was a friendly waiter who spoke very good English and did a great job!

In general the hotel is nice - design, staff, cleanliness. Good breakfast
One thng is that room is small (and especially the bathroom - really hard to move there without hitting something). The beds (in twin room) are more narrow than beds in some other Ibis hotels i stayed in, i had hard time sleeping because of it. Otherwise very nice hotel.

No iron available at all in the entire hotel despite website stating that irons and safe available in every room. Not ideal when the hotel was being used by many delegates attending a conference.
Hotel located in region where there are numerous sex shops.

3rd or 4th visit to this hotel, for me the location is perfect, close to the tramway for Nice & close to the main railway station for out of town trips. Hotel is standard 3* fare but it's clean and has a restaurant & bar. Free wifi throughout as well.

The hotel is located right next to the train station. To get to the old town one needs approximately 5-10 minutes by tram. Good hotel for a short stay if you travel via Nice and need to rest during your journey. Hotel rooms are tiny. Parking lot is available but is rather expensive and the way in gives you an extra experience.

We booked this as a last minute trip to Nice in August, so there was very little choice and prices were sky high! Good value overall, you get what you pay for I suppose. The location is good next to the rail station and opposite the airport bus stop, however there were a few groups of "undesirables" hanging around nearby. We had no problems but we were still careful. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the old town and beach or 5 minutes on the tram. The rooms are very small here and the bathrooms tiny! But then you wouldn't want to spend much time in them anyway. It was hot outside but the air con seemed to work reasonably well although the public areas were hot. There is a small outdoor pool which always seemed busy. Most restaurants and bars are towards the old town but we enjoyed back after dinner in the evening through the streets and there is a supermarket opposite the rail station.
