We have stayed in the Ibis hotel in Malaga on a couple of occasions and were therefore expecting and quite happy with the functional ‘offering’ of the chain. We were in room 415 which has no view but suited us as we’d asked for a quiet room. Check-in was friendly and efficient and the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Others may not appreciate the pared-down nature of the toiletries (an all-in-one shower / hand / shampoo gel dispensed from a container in the shower and next to the basin) so remember to bring your own shower-cap and body lotion. Again, as this is our experience of the chain, we were well prepared.

Less parsimonious was the breakfast buffet which was good, plentiful, varied and tasty. Additionally we didn’t have to queue for a table, which is always welcomed.

My husband found the staircase and is an architectural gem, well worth seeking out and using; so all-in-all the hotel scored well in itself.

The less favourable bit was the neighbouring area. The Brasserie Georges next door certainly merits a visit, particularly if you like to eat the bits of the pig that we don’t tend to do nowadays (and they do more normal pork cuts, other meats and fish too). Furthermore, they brew their own beer. The hotel is also very close to Peracche station so is handy for trains, trams and buses. However, there are rough-sleepers and clusters of youths hanging around the vicinity of the hotel which give the feeling of vague menace. This was a slight problem as to walk into the centre of Lyon meant passing them. I’m normally pretty relaxed about this kind of thing but there were less well-lit and hidden from view spots that made me more aware of and alert to my surroundings.

So whilst I could recommend the hotel to family and friends who are street smart, I may be reluctant to do so to those who are less prepared for the seedier side of life.

Hotel looks very nice, furniture/TV are new, and the bath was huge! Only had the buffet breakfast, it was good. Probably the menu for breakfast is standard in all Ibis in France because we had the exact same menu in 2 different hotels.
Also, it is very close to the Perrache metro station (actually a lot of other transports: bus, tram, train too), end of line A.
Now, the things not so good:
- train station is very close and you can hear some of the trains.
- it has no parking. In front of the hotel the paying parking allows maximum 3 hours of stay. There is a public parking across the street but to get in you have to make several turns, and is not so cheap (~15E/day)

At 60-70 euros per night for two, the Ibis Perrache offers good value, but keep in mind that this is a no frills hotel and not for those who are used to 4-star comfort or above. However, it does its job: the room is comfortable and clean, as is the bathroom (small, shower only, but it works well), and there is a small restaurant downstairs, as well as a computer with free internet. There is also a huge restaurant right next door (Brasserie Georges) which looks like a giant canteen and offers a bit of a surreal dining experience.

The downside of the hotel is that the area it is in (right next to the Perrache train station) is a bit sketchy, so some people might feel a bit uncomfortable walking around there. However, once you cross the Place Carnot and get into the city, you are right in the middle of a shopping street and within walking distance of the old town.

Overall, good value and ok as a stopover spot, but not a place to stay at if it is a special occasion. If you are traveling by train, pay attention to the train station you are arriving and departing from: it might well be Part-Dieu and not Perrache, in which case you can check the Ibis or Novotel next to Part-Dieu, which might be more convenient.
