Hotel Ibis is just across St. Etienne main railway station.
Cozy,though small rooms with clean rooms and bathrooms.
Located in the central area with access to a few restaurants just a short walk away.
Good for overnight stays when on business alone.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are not good because the hotel is oval in shape

Just booked one night here on a business trip . Everything was very clean and presentable . The hotel is very convenient to the train station and had a super restaurant next door ! The service from all the staff was very attentive and the receptionist Valerie was very helpful and made the trip a lot easier thanks Joe Gallagher

There are two Ibis hotels in St Etienne and Iadmit we saw the other one fro the motorway, but could not find it again. However, we had a good overnight stop at the ibis opposite the station. All too often these hotels are dismissed as bland or boring, but they do what it say's on the tin and this one does it very well. Overnight parking is available in the basement garage (useful when you have a car full of luggage), the room was clean and comfortable, the staff were helpfull and polite and finally, the breakfast was plentiful and excellent.
Full marks for this Ibis as an excellent overnight stop when touring.

Easy to find, difficult entrance to car park, which is gated. Difficult access to lift to get up to Reception. Room clean, but no air handling. Window opens onto terrace with no stay on the window to prevent access from outside. Breakfast good. Good value for the money, but with no fresh air or air handling, it made for a restless and hot night.

This hotel is spartan but clean. It is directly across the street from the train station and is easy to find. Breakfast was ok but hardly worth the fee. I asked for an iron and I received an iron....without an ironing board. Was a little tricky using the small desk to iron my dress shirt.
All in all - the price was fair and the bed was comfortable.

Very few hotels in the center of St. Entienne, so there is not much to choose from. However, I would certainly pick elsewhere than this IBIS. Have stayed at IBIS hotels for 25+ years all over France & other parts of Europe, & am disappointed to see a continued decline in consistency. It seems that the only thing consistent about IBIS, "is" their inconsistency. You never, ever know what to expect until you walk through the front door.It is too much to ask for at least 1 hand towel in a double room that costs $90+ US? Perhaps a trash can in the room, rather than just 1 in the bathroom? Perhaps that the walls be painted at least once every decade? Maybe a bright lightbulb in the bathroom fixture? Pathetic. The hotel is located directly across the street from the train station, which is not in the best part of the central city. It is a good 15-20 minute walk to the historic district where all the shopping/restaurants/bars/etc are located. And I would not want to make the walk between that part of town & this hotel late at night. As mentioned in my review of IBIS Roanne (formerly Terminus Hotel), IBIS is no longer a valid budget option, at prices ranging from $90US +++++, & many of the hotels are well below quality standards. This property still had nice clean linens & the staff were helpful & professional. Otherwise, it would just be another old dumpy run-down hotel. And "always keep in mind" that a LARGE percentage of IBIS properties, including this one, ARE NOT air conditioned. So if you don't want to sleep in a hot room, this is not your selection.
