Stayed here again, room not as big as last year but reasonable size for a family of four. I like the decor and ambience in this place. I found the staff to be very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room waas clean and the bathroom was modern. Parking was a tad pricey at 15 euros but overall a good place to stay. Breakfast is good with plenty to choose from if a little basic, does the job. Central location means you can explore the town and the beach which is great.
Stayed with our granddaughter in a family room. This is the second stay at this hotel and we are impressed with the helpful reception staff. Clean room. Good breakfast. Would recommend. There is plenty of parking nearby.
We booked a family room as an overnight stop before an early start from the Channel Tunnel. First of all this is very much a city centre location so there are lots of bars and restaurants close by. There are free gigs in the nearby square in the summer. However despite being in the ground floor, on a busy,hot Saturday night with the windows open, noise was not a problem. Probably as we were at the rear of the building. As we had all our kit including bikes, parking was important and the hotel only has a very small car park which needs pre booking and paying for. We did not do this and as the nearby free on street parking was all full, we ended up parked some distance away and had to wheel our bikes back to the hotel. As a plus point the hotel has a free, secure storage room for bikes and staff were happy to facilitate this. The room was very spacious(especially for a family room), clean and attractively decorated in a modern minimalist style. The bathroom was similar and boasted a really nice, high powered shower. The absence of a bin in the room was slightly bemusing and self-defeating. The only real bugbear was that on a sweltering night there was no air-conditioning. Even with a floor fan and the window open we all were very hot and didn’t get the best nights sleep, even though the bed itself was perfectly comfortable. All the staff we dealt with were friendly and enthusiastic. The breakfast was plentiful and pleasant enough and I’ve had far worse in French motels/hotels. The immediate area is quite vibrant and lively and I would happily stay in this hotel and in this area again.
The hotel is central. The building is old. The hotel is in need of serious up-grading. It feels tired and is dirty. We had to change the room as it was filthy. Bathroom and toilet were not properly cleaned. This is like any other Ibis hotels.. a hist and miss. Very expensive for what it was.despite an Accor hotel member, I certainly would not stay at this Ibis Style again.
Overall I like this hotel. Communication re booking was good. The staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. It's very difficult to find a family room with disability access, so this was next best thing. Large family room wheelchair friendly on ground floor. However there is a second door instead of a window which you wouldn't want to leave open at night for security reasons or the fact that people smoke outside of there and there is no fly blind. For me the room was too warm and I did not sleep well for this reason. The beds were comfortable nice and clean and breakfast was a good experience. The bar area is nice and the hotel is child friendly. The location is great very central, but as parking is limited its €15: euros per night. Personally I think if you are registered disabled and a wheelchair user parking should be included but as was pointed out this is a large hotel with only 15 parking spaces. Unfortunately eventhough I requested a definite parking place I was not informed of this charge at that point. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, but not on ground floor.
For the start of a cross-channel holiday this is a good one. Coming from the northwest of England, a long and tedious drive on the M6, M1, and M25 with all the road works, it is good to get off the boat and a minimal drive to the hotel. So long as you book there is an on-site car-park. The rooms are comfortable, very clean and as long as the air-conditioning is working, perfect. Bathrooms are spotless but extremely minimal....towels like postage stamps, likewise the soap. Breakfast has improved over the last three years and is very adequate albeit that the surroundings are a bit like an army mess. The Café de Paris a few steps up the Rue Royale is always a lively and cheap place to eat. We always ask for a room overlooking the car park which is very much more quiet than the front or side-street.
Nice modern friendly hotel in the main street of Calais Nord. Although it can be a bit noisy in the street at night the rooms are comfortable and clean. The clothes storage in the room consisted of a pull down hanger rail so we kept clothes in suitcases and we got the feeling the hotel catered mainly for one night stays but all in all it seemed to work out ok. Very good continental breakfast buffet with plenty of choices.
I love this hotel. It definitely has its own style. I don't think I have ever slept so well in a hotel bed. I woke really refreshed. And the location of the hotel is excellent. Plus there is plenty to see and do in Calais. It's a shame that many tourists pass straight through without stopping
We stayed here for our final night following a week's driving trip around Pas de Calais. The hotel is well located to access the bars, shops and restaurants and has secure car parking. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful on check-in. As usual, the breakfast was awesome - particularly the fresh orange juice machine!
The room was not too big but perfect for one person. I had exactly one pillow on a bed that seemed larger than a twin and smaller than a double. There was one hand towel, one bath towel and one bath mat--exactly right for me, but when you're used to excessive amounts of everything, it can seem like the room is small and not well equipped. The wardrobe area was perfect for my 2-night stay, but I can see that if you had multiple pieces of luggage, you would not know where to put them. The room and bed were spotless! Being on the 3rd floor gave me the benefit of being able to open my window with out concern for my safety, and I loved my view. However, the window treatments were merely sheers, so I felt a bit exposed, and the light streamed in early at 5:00 a.m.without a way to block it. I think the elevator was the smallest elevator I have ever been in. It says maximum 4 people, but I think 2 is pushing it. I wondered how anyone could get themselves and luggage in the elevator, but I saw a guest coming down the stairs with a suitcase in his hand and meet the elevator which opened up to reveal the rest of his luggage (and no people). Voila! It worked! There was not tea or coffee in the room, but there was a small reception area downstairs for making coffee or tea with the cream and sugar packets. This also worked for me. Breakfast was typical types of food--cut fruit, whole fruit, cereal, oatmeal, bread and pastries (better than the pastries at a Hilton in the US!), fresh juice, hard-cooked eggs, various cheeses, cold meat slices, yogurt, a coffee maker that does a variety of coffee types. It didn't have the hot bacon and sausage or omelets like I'm used to in the US, but I really didn't miss them, because the choices they had were great. The staff were helpful and patient with me (unfamiliar with France, French, etc.) I couldn't figure out how to turn on the lights...I didn't realize that you had to put your key card in the slot in order to activate all of the lights. ONE WORD OF WARNING--I was arriving after 9:30 on the Eurostar Train from London--would have missed the last bus to town, so the hotel ordered a taxi from Taxi radio Calais to meet me at the station. This is an 8 kilometer trip (5 miles) and it cost 32 Euro. A bus or train would have cost 2.40 Euro, so take a bus or train if you possibly can. (I took a train back and was shocked at the savings.) The area that the hotel is in was perfect for me to stroll around the parks and sites. The people are friendly and helpful. I tried to speak French, and most people kindly switched to English to alleviate my struggles. Calais is a lovely town. The hotel is one I would stay at again.
