Having stayed in Ibis hôtels on several occasions before, we knew what to expect, but this Ibis-Styles hotel was a lovely surprise and ideally situated for discovering Mâcon on foot, with a host of restaurants near the river, ten-minutes walk away. Also a good base for visiting this interesting area. The spacious, delightfully-decorated room and bathroom and very comfortable, clean bed were perfect and the icing on the cake was discovering the beautiful swimming-pool and peaceful gardens at the end of a hot day exploring the area. We were only there for two nights but would happily spend a week in such an "Oasis in the desert". Good buffet-style continental breakfast including fresh fruit and fruit juice. Our one negative comment is that although the room was spacious, there were no drawers, nor shelves in the wardrobe to put belongings (only hanging space with few hangers). Although I understand that most folk are "passing through" and probably staying only one night or two, there are surely some who stay longer; maybe even a week and would like that extra comfort in such an otherwise well-designed hotel.
