I chose this hotel as the start point for a motorcycle ride over the Route des Grandes Alpes in early September. As a solo traveler this time, and having stayed in Ibis hotels before (previously Etap), I was expecting clean, but basic functionality for a one night stay.
The room was very small, even for one person, though it was meant for three!. The carpet (usually laminate in my previous experiences of these hotels) on the floor was stained and dirty, and the skirting boards needed a wipe with some Cif and a damp cloth. My wife would have had a fit at the dirt that had been allowed to accumulate on them.
The en-suite was clean however, but a shrine to the seventies.
The aircon. whilst effective was not quiet enough to leave on whilst sleeping in 23C heat, and leaving the window open even on fourth floor allowed noise from the street below to disturb your sleep.
Breakfast was OK, the usual fare, but in this hotel it was spread out between three different areas (including two rooms) of the dining section which prompted a game of hunt the food in order to assemble a reasonable breakfast. A large cycling group was already in mid breakfast flow when I arrived for breakfast at 7am, and most of the bread selection was gone, and was not replenished in the 20 minutes I was present.
This hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment to bring it up to the standard of the majority of the Ibis Budget chain, say for example when compared to the Ibis Budget in Menton, which whilst still basic, is by comparison in a different league.
OK for a one night stop over, but no more than that. It is also a twenty minute walk into the town to get something to eat/drink.
There is however enough space at the side of the reception entrance to park two motorbikes under cover.
