Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very basic but cheap. The room was reasonable clean, but the shared bathrooms no so. The hotel is not particlarly clean. As an overnight stop with just the need of a bed, it's OK. The good thing as with all F1 hotels, there is a gated and fenced parking compound which is floodlit. Ideally located for easy motorway access.

Standard basic f1 hotel, cheap and cheerful. Clean basic room, the one I had would sleep three, double bed with a single bunk above. Two electric sockets, although one of them so close to the corner that uk adaptor wouldn't fit so could only use standard French schuko type plug. Found a couple of places to eat,McDonald's about 1.2km, and Potates restaurant, about 500m. Toilets and showers not far from any room. Vending machines for drinks, and microwave oven available in reception area.

Room was spotless, hotel was quite, staff were obliging, I got a room 207 in a non smoking area as requested, didn't stop the smoke wafting into my bedroom spoiling what would have been a 4* rating, small point, a plastic glass for toothpaste and brush would have been handy...

I didn't expect much and knew F1 is just basic, plain and simple out of experience, yet I was still let down. Very dirty sanitary, breakfast inside accompagnied by the penetrant smell of pee. Luckily there's pic-nic tables outside. Beds and rooms were fine though, fairly good internet also.

This was the 2nd hotel we stayed in on our road trip to Ibiza. Once again the f1 hotels are small but adequate, quite basic but satisfied our needs as somewhere to stay that was cheap. This ticks all the boxes of what we needed. There was staff at reception upon our late arrival which greeted us warmly. Is located alongside an industrial area, there was a late night mcdonalds open close by too which was very much needed after nearly 12 hours driving.

OK stay but I booked online and was asked to pay on arrival. i trusted their advice only to find that I'd paid online and on arrival! Two weeks later I'm still chasing for a refund and they won't reply. Avoid at all costs. Pubes in the shower too. And someone scratched my car bonnet overnight despite it being supposedly secure parking.

>GOOD< Friendly staff and helpful with information. Rooms were reasonably clean and comfortable. Internet was free and good enough for browsing. >BAD< Toilets were very smelly and dirty. They were all in a bad way when we got there in the evening. Not sure how often they are cleaned? In the end we went out and use the toilets in a restaurant rather than face the ones in the hotel. It is a shame as the place would have been quite reasonable if more attention was placed here.

One of our five different visits to Hotel F1 locations, our stay here was nice, the rooms and showers were clean. While no smoking signs were posted, it was obvious that this was not followed. Didn't bother us in the room, but the hallways had the lingering smell of smoke.

Stayed one night to use wifi and charge up laptop etc. Room clean,tidy and comfortable. Bedding very nice. Showers/toilets clean. Lots of hot water .Wifi not very good but the hotel was full of workmen. When they all left the next morning wifi was great. Was a bit noisy till late, but was used by a lot of workmen. Ideal spot as just off motorway.
