Always happy to stay in this Angouleme Ibis hotel, if i had one criticism it would be the TV access to a greater number of channels / languages. Otherwise always clean and tidy..

Open prison style living on a busy road.

The first night I slept for 2 hours being woken periodically by a pot smoking party and a massive air conditioning block near my window. room 202

Smelly room

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Jacqueline R. Friends - 23/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room (105) seemed clean enough and I was happy with my stay there. I did have to spray the room with air freshener though as it had a smell like old sweaty socks. There was evidence of somebody having smoked in the room as there were cigarette butts on the windowsill between the inner and outer window. Breakfast was good although I would have liked to have toasted my bread... perhaps I just didn't find the toaster. The coffee was very good.... I do like my coffee!!

Perfect for a short break in the old city of Angouleme

We love this hotel and have stayed here now for the last 5 years when we visit Angouleme for an annual event. Its located 3/4 of the way up the hill to the old part of the town - so is not a hard a walk to get to the historic centre. We find most hotels of this standard to be pretty similar but what makes this one special is the staff. Every person we have had contact with has been extremely pleasant from the welcome at reception to the room servicing staff which is most often the sign of a good manager which really does make a difference and the reason we will always return to this hotel. Rooms are all doubles and are just large enough for our needs for a short break - the family rooms have a small bed over the double bed. There is a small desk with power socket and another power outlet next to the bed. Windows open for fresh air and when the air conditioning functions well. The shower room is small but the space is well used and the shower always has lots of hot water always available. There is no parking at the hotel (well 4 very small spaces underneath and a bit of a challenge to get to) but there is a large covered car park on the next road which is very near. A very reasonable breakfast is available for just under €7 . Basically this offers everything you need from a hotel with the added benefit of lovely welcoming staff. We look forward to our next visit.

Bathroom stank of raw sewage

Matt Families - 16/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I don't mind the small rooms or tired appearance but there was something seriously wrong with the plumbing, I have never experienced anything like the stench that eminated from these. We couldn't change rooms as the hotel was full and also couldn't find other reasonable alternatives at such short notice, otherwise we'd have left straight away. The staff member was lovely but we did not raise this with her as in a full hotel she could not have offered an alternative. Won't be using again

Basic hotel - ok for a short break

anonymousuk2018 Couples - 30/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Basic budget hotel. Room was a good size but the shower-room was tiny and the shower head would not stay fixed any higher than shoulder height. Toilet was so squashed into the corner it was practically impossible to use! Basic breakfast. Not many staff about at any time.

the hotel situated in the heart of the town was good for getting round all the sights of the weekend being there for the race weekend and only short walk to all action This in my opinion is one of the best weekends

The room is quiet, clean and has the basic things that you need to stay a short period. The bathroom needs to has a floor cloth like in other ibis budget. The hotel is in a good location near to the stores and good restaurants.

Steve891986 Couples - 23/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

Budget hotel, and it is. That said the staff were 1st class, incredibly responsive and helpful always with a smile.The shower brilliant. Location was pretty much perfect and breakfast was more than acceptable. I guess the reservation was that it would have been nice to have a few shelves or wardrobe rather than live out of a case but if you were staying overnight, its perfect . I would use it again for sure.

Jo B Family - 13/08/2015 TripAdvisor review

I was disappointed - when we booked it I knew it was a budget hotel, but I'd stayed in Ibis hotels before and although they'd be plain, they'd be really clean and good quality. However this one was more akin to a hostel. The room itself was in really poor condition. The bathroom smelt really badly of damp, the shower cubicle was really cracked and the tiles badly needed replacing. The bedroom was completely soulless. Later on in the trip we stayed at a Novotel which was £15 more expensive that this room and it was a totally different class. If I had paid £20 per night for this room I'd have expected something of this quality but I won't be staying in an Ibis Budget again.

Hello jobE8451XC, Thank you for having stayed at Ibis Budget Angoulême and thank you for leaving your comment. I apologize because you have not been satisfied with the room and so you find the price / quality not very good . I assure you that we take your comment very seriously and will make improvements quickly. Please believe in the best feelings, Lauriane Vandewalle Community manager

Location good, hotel definitely budget ......

ElaineG445 Couples - 24/10/2013 TripAdvisor review

For a one night stopover this is just about ok, although for €50 not that cheap. Great location, we were able to walk into town for a bite to eat which was a godsend after a long day stuck in the car! Room was poor though, scruffy, bit dirty, the whole hotel needs a make over. Parking in the side road if spaces (make sure you have moved it by 8.30am the following day).

very noisy

peter d Couples - 01/10/2013 TripAdvisor review

My wife and I were staying for one night in preparation for a very long drive next day but sleep was difficult to come by. We had to have the window open as the air conditioning was not working, and on that particular night city noise was extreme until about 2 in the morning. Staff spoke good English for those with no French and they were also friendly and polite (though the lad on reception admitted there was nothing he could do about the air conditioning). Price was about £52 including a simple continental breakfast so these hotels do not break the bank and they are invariably clean with good facilities - including free wi-fi. This was a city centre location (Ibis Budget are also sited on the peripheries of cities and this type have good free parking) but the small car park was full and we had to make alternative arrangements which meant some heavy bag carrying over a longish distance. The upside though, was, you get to stay in a city which has far more atmosphere and good restaurants unlike the out of town hotels which are exceedingly sterile.

Rough around the edges

BroadNightLight Family - 21/09/2013 TripAdvisor review

Not the cleanest Ibis Budget I've stayed in, especially the bathroom. Could do with some renovation. Finding a parking space was easier than expected: if you're lucky you can park your car in the small street next to the hotel or there's a (paid but very affordable) car park under the shopping mall just 300m away.

Typical budget hotel

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Claire G Couples - 22/07/2013 TripAdvisor review

We found Angouleme hard to navigate and the hotel would have been incredibly difficult to locate without a sat nav, but even so we found more information could have been provided on parking. In the end we had to park up and check in before we learnt that we there is no dedicated car parking but that the nearby multi-storey serving the shopping mall is incredibly reasonable (5 euros per 24 hours), well lit, clean and manned by ticket machines and guards which was reassuring. The room was basic and clean but very few of the tv channels worked (we attributed this to the heat), luckily the air con DID work and the door was controlled by a code rather than key or card which gave us an added sense of security. The bathroom was disappointing, incredibly cramped, the toilet seat was broken as was the toilet roll holder, but as we were just there the one night we didn't make a big issue of it. Would I recommend it again or stay there again? probably not, but only because we found driving into the centre of town and finding the hotel/parking too stressful and we would instead stay out of town if we visited the region again.

Abcdef508 Business - 23/04/2013 TripAdvisor review

The Ibis hotel was very comfortable and located near to the city centre. So to walk 5 minutes up the hill to the city was easy and pleasant. The resturant at the bottom of the the hill, the Terminus Resturant had a good selection of traditional cooking, while it took 8 minutes to walk down to it, the 10 minutes up the hill allowed for a good strecth after dinner.
