“Great Location, Basic Hotel”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We (my partner and I) stayed here for a weekend away, the location of the hotel is fantastic, right opposite the walls of the old city, with a huge free public car park directly across the road, however the room we stayed in was very small and pretty basic. The room itself was clean and comfortable just a little small, barely enough room for 2 people with a small overnight bag. We didn't eat at the hotel, so not able to comment.

It is August and there is a fun fair across the road from the hotel that goes on to 1am. I am told it is here every year. Pity that was not mentioned on the website. As there is no aircon we need the windows open to avoid excessive heat. Staff don't seem to care. Car park full so have has to park 1/4 mile away due to funfair. Avoid this hotel in August or hot weather. Not a happy bunny.

Their business is in part based upon cheap accommodation for families coming to and from England.
Well, try arriving on 02.08.14 and getting some sleep in the afternoon.
The location is superb and usually tranquil. Not then. A fair with disco blaring all afternoon (ear defenders do not keep the thumping out inside the rooms with closed double glazing).

Impossible to sleep.

Boulogne is having a crass makeover.

What could have been marketed as a charming old French town now has in its formerly cobbled square a permanent naff Arabian garden. The industrial bricks surrounding the garden are cheap and nasty and mock centuries of tradition in this unique and fine old town
.
If your taste is Euro Disco then this is the place for you.

The point is that just as the fair/disco was booked ages ago and known to the proprietors of the Ibis when they accepted our booking, so were they able to tell us. This did not occur.

Beware!

Having seen Boulogne on this occasion it has lost its charm and appears like so many other places in Northern France, to be best avoided.

Right next to the old town, opposite the old city wall & entrance to the ramparts. Rooms clean, fair size, well-maintained. Staff helpful. If you have trouble sleeping, might want to check out the air con situation (we had it but in the bathroom?!)as opening the window will let street noise in.

Room was excellent and good value for money. Although it is at side of the main road, we slept well. Helpful and knowledgeable staff, spoke excellent English. Breakfast was continental, so was a little pricey; although comparable with Travelodge for quality and price. Plenty of free public parking across the road. Although the town beach area was very busy, this may not be the case at other times of the year.

This was the last of 8 nights spent at 6 different Ibis hotels in France and, until the final night in Boulogne, we had had the benefit of efficient and very welcome air conditioning.
We arrived on what the French meteo reports described as the hottest day of the year so far - and it was extremely hot. Unfortunately, our hotel room did not have air conditioning, which surprised us as all the previous hotels, including Calais, did, and none of us slept particularly well because of the heat. One thing we discovered on our return was that the Ibis website does not clearly indicate which hotels have air con and which don't.

Other than this, the stay was comfortable. The hotel is well situated close to the old town which has some excellent and reasonably priced eating places. The walk round the walls is pleasant and gives great views of the city and the nearby coast.
Breakfast was the usual Ibis breakfast - good quality, a wide range of food and drink and a good sized coffee cup.
There is parking at the hotel which you have to pay for, but there is good free public parking nearby.
The staff are polite and helpful, and the rooms are, as always with an Ibis, extremely clean.

Room Tip: Ask for one which isn't near the lift!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your stay in our hotel.
It is true that the indications about air conditioning are not very clear on our website. Be sure, we will do our best to fix this.
