its OK if you just want somewhere to sleep for a night, that's about it really. If you are on the larger side I would think about somewhere else the bath rooms are stupidly small, I cant for the life of me get my head around who thought it was OK to sign these off for build. The beds are ridiculously uncomfortable. I found the staff to be polite. Like I say it is what it is.

Room Tip: yea... book another hotel

Dear Fred C,

Thank you for taking time to share your experience at Ibis Portsmouth Centre.

Although I understand the bathroom is limited in size, we were trying to get best out of it by re-creating the original ‘cabin’ look.
By placing glass door enclosure and using light tones we wanted to maximise the impression of bigger room.

Thank you once again for all your comments. Having the chance to know what you experienced is the best tool we can have to improve.

Yours sincerely,

Veronika Rackova
Assistant General Manager

Stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is just across the road from the Uni. of Portsmouth, very handy for my purpose. The rooms were very clean and typical Ibis small, the toilet is a squeeze. Parking was GBP6 per day extra. After 3 nights we moved to a B&B with free parking and breakfast at a lower rate.

Dear Keminkoo,

Thank you for your review.
I am pleased to read that our location suited your travel plans.
As with most city centre hotels, we do indeed charge for parking. I understand that Ibis Portsmouth is one of the few central hotels able to provide guests with onsite parking, and that the rates offered are competitive.

Thank you once again for sharing your experience. I hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Ibis Portsmouth in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Veronika Rackova

We stayed over for the night before a ferry trip. It is in a good location and not badly priced although they do charge an extra £4 for car parking.

Clean room but very cramped and the bathroom was tiny with the smallest shower we have ever seen.

Water was not hot and the shower pressure was insufficient to was your hair.

However, for what we needed it for, it fill the bill

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the largest bathroom. An obese person would not have fit in the shower.
