Faceless but functional
modern city center hotel the room was more spacious than some modern hotels I have stayed in. I just checked in went out for a beer/meal came back stayed the night so didn't use any of the services or extras and can't say if they were good or bad. It is in a good location about 5 mins walk from the railway station but also where the nightlife is, I was given a room on the 12th floor and didn't hear anything from the street no problem with noise or disturbance. The shower ran hot and cold for no reason and without being adjusted was the only negative otherwise I would stay again.

I wont be rushing back
I haven't stayed in an Ibis hotel for quite a few years and they have had a bit of rebranding. I'm not sure I like it. Maybe I'm getting old but I don't like lino on floors, practical it might be but welcoming and cosy it is not. Talking of which neither was the bed or the spaceship (bathroom) plonked in the corner of the room.
