Ibis Budget Bordeaux Aeroport
Ranked #5 of 23 Hotels in Merignac
Reviewed 5 October 2013

The Ibis Budget Bordeaux Aeroport Hotel, without question, provides the least amount of travel related services that we have ever experienced. My wife and I arrived at the hotel early in the evening of September 19, tired and hungry after a long trip from Sarlat. We found that the hotel has no restaurant other than ;for breakfast and as they could not recommend one within walking distance, we settled for snacks from the vending machine. All we wanted at that point was to check our emails and to get to sleep as we had to leave the hotel at 4:30 a.m. to check in for a 6:00 a.m. international flight.

Our room was very small, clean, and quiet. It was equipped with a flat screen TV and Wi-Fi. I believe it is the only hotel we have ever stayed at where the shower is actually in the room. Happily, the toilet was in its own small enclosed cubicle.

We were told when we checked in that the hotel serves a continental breakfast but that it would not be ready for us because we were leaving too early. When we asked about printing our boarding passes, we were advised to go to another hotel to see if we could have them printed there. When we asked about transportation to the airport, we were told that they would call a taxi for us but when we came down to the lobby at 4:00 a.m., we found that this had not been done. Fortunately, the employee preparing the hotel's 6:30 a.m. breakfast buffet did call us a taxi and it came in time. He also got us a coffee and a croissant.

Because we had previously stayed at and been satisfied with the Ibis Airport Hotel in Paris, we assumed that the service in Bordeaux would be at about the same level. We were completely mistaken. The Ibis Budget Bordeaux proved, beyond question, that "you get what you pay for" and, in this case, even less.

The Ibis (pronounced EEbis) is conveniently located near the airport. To get to it, take the bus for less than 2 Euros, rather than a taxi which will cost 10 Euros. The room was compact, but trendy. Breakfast had a good variety to choose from. Hair dryers were not in the room, but you could borrow one from the front desk for a small returnable deposit. No telephones in the room as well, but good WiFi service. Staff were fluent in English and pleasantly answered all queries.

If you change the shower/washing facilities for the same as the Ibis St Jean de Luz you will gain space and the room will be more comfortable. Extremely bad arrangement of the room no space for suitcases or clothes. I preferred the original Etap Hotel rooms of the year 2003.

We stayed for a night at the Ibis during our roadtrip. The staff is friendly. The room for two was tidy. Thumbs up for the bed mattress which was comfy. Try the breakfast buffet it is quite nice. I do recommend this Ibis for an express stay.

Located within a 20 minute walk of airport. There is also a city bus stop located just outside the hotel which picks up passengers; within 2 stops you're at the airport. Check the bus stop for times. This same bus will take you into the heart of Bordeaux city for under €2.
Rooms were full of space saving features but well designed so it never felt cramped. Think Tokyo capsule hotel but with more room.
