“Great location, spartan, expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

Its location is superior so most of Omsk's attractions are within walking distance, but even if you are not keen on sightseeing, you can stay in your room and watch a multitude of TV programmes (mostly in Russian). The hotel façade has been tastefully renovated and the sidewalks nearby are swept clean, which is generally typical for the centre of this Western Siberian city. We also liked the cleanliness of the hotel interior, including the shower cabin.

FDC was very helpful in re-assigning us to another standard room when we didn't like the room where she had initially placed us. The hotel supplied 0.6 L of drinking water per guest every day, a very nice touch. There were also two pairs of slippers which felt like paper, only it was plastic. The hotel didn't supply the following:

- soap bars or any other toiletries for that matter (only some gel);
- shelves for toiletries in the shower cabin, so we had to place our sponges and shampoos on the floor when hot water finally arrived, water pressure was excellent and the shower head allowed a massage setting;
- in-room safe;
- in-room iron;
- fridge;
- shoe mitt;
- door mat;
- bedside rugs.

Wi-Fi fast and honest internet was included in the rate, and the connection didn't drop.

Our room provided a good night's rest although it was small, and the bed was also a bit narrow for two. There was no bed cover, just the blanket, and it was actually another good thing because you never know how often hotel bed covers end up crumpled on the floor and then the maid puts them on your pillows.

Some other features were not so good. With a standard room rate of EUR105/night (w/o breakfast) we had expected more comfort. The room was completely devoid of any hint of interior design bar one wall which carried two colours. The rest was plainly whitewashed, without even a poster on the wall, or a single rug on the floor. The bathroom was equally bare, with just some shower gel tubes built-in into the walls. There was not even a shelf in the shower cabin to put our own soap and sponges on. On top of it, the first 40 hours of our stay there was no hot water and we had to take lukewarm showers. We complained to the FDC twice but all the help we could get was advice to fully open the tap and wait till the water gets hot; it didn't.

Worst of all, we didn't feel safe in the hotel because our door could be opened with any flat object in seconds, so we complained to the FDC and she promised to send in a technician but then nothing changed. I had a quick glance at some other doors on our floor and most of them looked as flimsy as ours, all bearing marks of forced entry. I posted a video on the Internet where you can see the entire 20-second process of breaking in into an ibis hotel room: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=4850078776110&set=vb.1421190189&type=2&theater

Ibis has been recently renovated and now offers true European standard. The rooms are nice and clean, same for the bathroom even though corners of our shower could have been better. Also, warm water was optional, it was fine in five in the morning but when I wanted to take a shower around 1 a.m. after returning from a bar, it was not very warm. Same when we arrived, could have been warmer. Breakfast allright. Room cleaning efficient and unobtrusive. Huge selection of TV channels. Overall a positive experience.

Even though its an older building, everything inside is new. Very efficient check in, nice rooms. Would be a nice upgrade for them to consider shampoo conditioner body wash bottles instead of one for all.
Restaurant inside is nice and affordable. I didnt feel like exploring, so i just stayed in my cave and liked it.

Neat, simple in a good way, looks like freshly renovated, European style.
Breakfast and dinner both very much meet the expectations. Staff very helpful and friendly.
A convenient place to stay on a business trip, especially in this part of Russia.

The hotel is on the one of the main streets of the city. Near hotel there are many restorants, cafes, shops, 5 min. walk + Supermarket. When you orderthe room in hotel, you must immediately clarify the "smoking - no smoking" room.
The rooms are small but comfortable. The room has everything you need. As a minus - almost all rooms leaking shower ((But this is not a big problem.
Service staff are responsive and attentive.

It’s my 2nd stay in this hotel. Took suite this time. Generally it’s not worth it. Hotel is still nice n clean. Feet towel would be nice but maybe you may get it upon request which I didn’t try. There’s a cigarette stink in a bathroom despite floor is nonsmoking. Ventilation issue? The thing which I didn’t like at all is a B-fast fee to pay as extra. Discovered only during 2nd B-bast from the lady rushing to me to inform that I didn’t pay for what I ate… Silly point but they should simply inform about that at check-in, that’s it. Nevertheless would stay again next time.

Stayed here recently and found the Trip Advisor reviews veryu accurate. The hotel is ok for an Ibis although in part a bit dated. The food was generally good although the restaurant was not as comfortable as the bar where the same food was also available, all the trestaurant staff were friendly and mostly efficient.
Reception staff were very friendly and most spoke passable english. The room was typical Ibis and could have done with a few more "extras" like shampoo and a kettle for making a hot drink (it has been -20 to -25 degrees this week in Omsk). Wifi was free and I managed to get quite a good constant speed.
The only other negative point is that the TV was virtually all in Russian, not even a BBC World or CNN.

Overall it was ok and for an Ibis slightly above average because the food was generally of a good quality and varied selection.

Room Tip: Room to the front was very quiet due the excelent sound proof windows.
