3 out of 5 but great staff
I'll concentrate on the negatives only because if you can tolerate my evaluation then you should be relatively happy. Nothing terrible to report except the extremely long check in queues. Ibis Styles has a lot of rooms so the queues are long. With only 2 check in terminals I estimated the wait for the worst times was well over 30mins. And the queues were relentless over the 2 days I was there. Keep in mind it was Easter. But also keep in mind it would be busy at this class of hotel most of the year.
I stayed at the front hotel section 2 doors from the top of the stairs. Ask for rooms further from the stairs because it's the noisiest part of the floor. Everyone has to come up and down those stairs. Its also right beside the function rooms which can get busy and loud, almost all day of they are being used.
These front of hotel rooms also have windows opening straight out over the hotel entrance. That means noise and nosy people.I love balconies and windows that open because I like the fresh air over air conditioning. But the Windows at the front of the hotel have zero privacy. Unfortunately, the blocky design of the place means almost every room looks out onto the driveways and parking spaces. Not a deal breaker, just a negative.
When the place is full be prepared to park at the back of the hotel in a large open parking lot style gravel covered piece of dirt. Not a deal breaker just inconvenient, dark and dirty of it rains.
Pillows are tiny and ineffective.
