A great base a little to far from sion itself but close to the motorway. Very friendly hotel and food was delicious with a great choice of evening meal. Breakfast was good with fruit, cereal, croissants, bread, jams, cheese, meats and yogurts. Good choice of coffee and teas.

The Ibis Sion is close to the Sion Hospital and health related centres. The main shopping precinct is across the river about 5 min drive away, though an Aldi and other specialist shops are a within walking distance, down the street - turn left and up the road sort off ... probably a 15 minute walk.
The front desk service and cleanliness of my particular room was very good. There's free outdoor parking and an outdoor area to sit down for your morning coffee. The staff are very helpful and take care of you as soon as you arrive. The free WiFi was also very handy. The in-house restaurant is also very convenient and not too expensive for those who want to eat in, there is also a very good laundry service (24hr turnaround) which I used. The usual features - bed side lights, strong hot water, quiet sleeping, a comfy big bed, a big multi channel TV were all working or of high quality.
I used the Sion as a ski base and for this purpose it is very well situated for access to all the ski fields via Veysonnaz.
I would definitely stay at the Ibis Sion East again and recommend it to fellow skiers.

My favourites were the free parking, WiFi that worked, comfy quiet sleeping and attentive , personable staff.

The staff are great! They go above and beyond in helping and recommending! The location is close to the alps and close to a diverse town centre...

The Swiss Bistro situated in the hotel is fantastic and really good value in comparison to other eateries we have been to. Definitely restaurant quality for a cheaper price (in comparison). Breakfast had a great selection also!

Our room was small and there are not many extras provided in the room but emphasis on the great service really trumps... And in any case the room was just for sleeping for us.

The staff was friendly, multilingual, and helpful, which is greatly appreciated when traveling over holidays. Although it was located a bit far from Old Town and the train station, there was a bus that picked up basically outside the hotel that came every so often. For what I paid, I am not displeased at all. The beds were comfy. However, our bathroom heater leaked and there were minimal towels. I would stay here again.

This was my family's first trip to Switzerland (we live in quebec, Canada) and we were really impressed with the area. Sion is a destination spot on its own, having great restaurants and a medieval ambiance in its narrow streets. It's also close to some excellent skiing (we skied Nendaz and Verbier) and is exceptionally affordable. The rooms are very clean, the staff friendly and exceptionally helpful in guiding us to local ski spots and accommodating our requests. The two highlights for me were the wonderfully comfortable bed and the high pressure shower! Much appreciated after a day on the slopes.

A very nice hotel, at the high end of the 2 star category. Pleasant and courteous staff, very clean rooms, reasonable prices. Rooms are quite spartan, as is the norm at Ibis. The hotel has a restaurant, and food (both hot snacks and beverages) are available H24. Wi-Fi is free but not very fast. Fast Wi-Fi is available at extra charge from Swisscom.

Lots of free parking. Located in a quiet neighborhood, quite far away from the city center. This is good so far as 'no noise' is concerned, but there is nothing at all of interest in the neighborhood. So, if all you want to do there is sleep, it's a great location, if you want to see Sion, it is not a good location. .

All in all, one of the nicer Ibis hotels I have been to, I would gladly return.
