Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Even the non-"budget" Ibis is rather budget
Cons: only a couple power outlets in room, and not close to bed/nightstands. Weird pod-like bathroom. No dressers or mini-fridge, so fairly small and spartan room. Location is fair for tram but a hike for the trains. Very few walkable places around the hotel, more industrial area. At one point in morning, staff actually entered our room while we were still trying to sleep, which annoyed us. Pros: nice, posh lobby. Modern and good condition rooms and beds.
