Poor 2.0
No concession consideeing I was taken ill & ended up in in Hosp for almost 3days in A&E .. 🙏 Just by dealing with duty management I found them to be very inflexible Though they promised to bring my case to IBIS the Manager refused to speak to me point blank when I was checking out leaving the delivery of bad news to her junior colleagues - even though I could clearly see her in the next room - she totally blanked and dismissed me . Very rude and disappointing aprroach after a week long stay. I requested a small fridge from r meds in my room . It wasn’t provided and each day morning and eve I had to approach staff wait and go to oublic facilities to administer my meds. This is for me humiliating ! From r a lesser fee in a similar style Ibis in Wroclaw they facilitated my request in this regard honorably . Lacking in sensitivity is my appraisal of the tough manager - Lady -. Other staff esp the young Barman and one special lady with waves and curls at reception reception were courteous considerate and kind. Credit where credit is due . But the Top of the pencil needs pairing .

Great hotel overall!
Hotel was situated in a great location-close to the centre by metro. The breakfast was very good, the room was clean, and the parking was good as well. The only aspect that could be improved is that the parking lot closes from 12am to 7:30pm, so if you need to leave early in the morning you’re stuck.

very cosy hotel
clean and comfortable room, good wifi, good breakfast, very close to IPO metro stop, located within a big shopping complex where one can buy all the necessities (supermarket, pharmacy, hairdresser etc)
Ivan, ie4 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
Excellent value for money and great location.
We stayed 4 nights here in early May and were very satisfied with our choice. The free outside parking at the hotel, easy access to the metro for a short journey into the city centre, and easy access to main roads and highways, were big influences on our choice and all worked well. Being located above a shopping centre with a supermarket and numerous places to eat at reasonable prices were also big pluses. The staff were very helpful and the room was clean and comfortable and big enough. We did not have only hotel meals so can not comment on that aspect. Wifi was free and worked well. Finding the entrance for cars, which is up a driveway shared with the neighbouring hospital was a bit tricky on arrival, especiallly at the driveway where the sign was in red and not very noticeable whereas the numerous signs on the mainly one way streets were prominent and blue. Overall highly recommended, especially for anyone with a car and seeking value for money.

This hotel is very unclean. I reserved 3 rooms for 2 nights. The bathroom were stinky and full of old sticky dirt. The facility itself looks like an old motel. The rates are absolutely overpriced. Not recomendded
