The toilet flush didn't work. I had to take the lid off the flush tank and work it by hand. Since it was faulty it took a long time to refill and was noisy. We're talking about replacing parts worth about €30. The bathroom had old, ingrained dirt worked in everywhere. Bad cleaning for ages, I imagine. The door had summarily had two inches cut off its bottom to admit air. So probably the original design was dangerous. The heat didn't work, only the aircon. In the corridor the lamp over the vestibule with the lift was broken and hanging down dangerously on its wiring. It was rusty and filthy, as if it had been in that position for months or years.
The following morning (Saturday), the coffee machine swallowed my money but wouldn't produce a cappuccino. Nor would it give my money back. The only member of staff present was a serving woman folding linen in the restaurant (ad hoc eating space is a better name for it). She couldn't do anything and at first wouldn't refund my money. When I asked for the manager she explained that there was none during the weekend. In the end she refunded the money from her own bag. I told her that the room had been unsatisfatory, and she said, Well, sometimes like is like that. Great business philosophy!
To be fair, when I told the woman at the desk on Friday night about the toilet, she offered me another room. But I was reluctant to take it as I had already unpacked. And it was very late.
This unpleasant experience seems to confirm my guess that Accor is letting its Ibis Budget hotels disintegrate to grotty wrecks, until it upgrades them to Ibis Boutique hotels, which are considerably more expensive --- and may be worth the price. But this one was certainly wasn't. Don't go there, and be very circumspect about booking in at any Ibis Budget.
