The plus points of this hotel are its location near the rail station and tram stop going into the city centre, plus the fact that you usually know what you are getting with an Ibis. The hotel does have free wifi access and an internet point you can use free of charge for 15 minutes at a time. They also gave us a reasonable welcome and a map of the city upon arrival. But in most other respects, I thought that this hotel was decidedly average.
Our room on the 1st floor was facing an inner courtyard, meaning everyone having a cigarette break outside on that level could see straight in. A few plants to improve the view and privacy on that floor would be useful. The walls were thin and you could hear the TV/ conversations in adjacent rooms. The decor needs updating in the hotel's communal areas and the staff seemed tired and unmotivated. We didn't hang out for breakfast, preferring the ambience of one of the city's many cafés.
None of these things make the hotel a bad choice, but I think in such a lovely city as Bordeaux, they face stiff competition, and there are many things that could be done to make this Ibis more than simply adequate.
