Huyen T. T. Couples - 17/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

In general, we had a good stay at IBIS as usual. Our room is spacious and clean, also, it has a large TV, the bed is comfortable. The breakfast is delicious with a large choice. The hotel respects the safety and hygiene measures during this special period of COVID-19. The only thing I would give this rate because the parking is not free.

Uli Couples - 10/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

As basic as it is, for a one night stay in Besanon this hotel is unbeatable for its relation of price and location near the old town island. Restaurant is of higher quality than expected. Staff was friendlly and helpful. As for technical standard ist must be said that in a cold winter night (aroud freezing) it took 2 changes of romm until we got one where the AC was able to warm the room for a comfortable stay.

Relaxed and friendly staff. The room was comfortable but i did not like the bathroom - it was cold and the door did not close fully and the appearance of the solid white plastic made it feel like the bathroom of a ferry. I think the restaurant was not well promoted in the hotel and it seemed to be closed for maintenance work during my stay.

Great hotel for a couple of days to explore the city. The breakfast exceeded our expectations, lovely fresh cold cuts and d-i-y egg boiling for perfection, plus the usual fruits and breads. Great location for Quay side bars and restaurants too. We even discovered a great little Lebanese restaurant.

Better than the bigger names

More effort needed

CARADS15 Couples - 25/09/2016 TripAdvisor review

Our stay at the La City Ibis was spoilt by the poor service we felt we received from the reception staff. Firstly the inadequate directions for the access to and exit from the car park and secondly when dealing with the fact that we had been allocated a room that had not been cleaned and prepared for use by the next customer. Instead of a member of the hotel staff coming to the room to apologise and make new arrangements we were expected to return to the reception desk and when we did so pick up another room key with no word of apology. We used the hotel restaurant and were very happy with it.

Rooms are very clean and comfortable, the bed is perfect. Öné more electricity plug in near the bed would make the room more comfortable. Staff is usually very kind helpful. Price/quality rate is very good.
