- Free Wifi
I haven't stayed in this hotel yet, but I booked a room there and I also needed a parking space. On their web frontpage they offered FREE private parking. Super! But on the second page in small print the private parking costed 6 €. So it was not free anymore! I decided to book a room anyway, but when I wanted to make a parking space reservation, hotel asked me to pay not 6 € but 7 €. I told them that I have in my hands a voucher where the parking price is only 6 €, but then they just changed the price on their webpage from 6 € to 7 € and insisted that I must pay the higher price if I want to reserve parking space. So from "free" we first came to 6 € and finally to 7 €.
Of course, I don't care for 1 €, but I just don't want to be a guest in such unfair hotel. So I cancelled my booking.
Bonjour, C'est avec une attention particulière que j'ai pris connaissance de votre message. Après vérification, je pense qu'il doit s'agir d'une erreur, je ne pense pas qu'il s'agisse de notre hôtel. Notre parking privé est à 6€ et non 7€(le changement de prix du parking n'est prévu que pour le 04 Avril) et nous n'avons absolument pas la possibilité de changer le prix à notre guise sur notre site web. De plus, nous ne faisons pas payer nos clients un prix différent de celui qui est afficher, c'est une obligation légale. Si vous avez d'autre éléments dont vous voulez me faire part, n'hésiter pas à me contacter à l'adresse suivante firstname.lastname@example.org. Cordialement, Jemaa, directrice Ibis Budget Blois Centre.
My family of 4 stayed 2 nights as a stopover travelling to the Dordogne. The family room bunk sleeping is fun but not for young children or for anyone less mobile. It was clean and the staff were helpful. The only issue we had was that the payment card reader couldn't take payment from either mine or my husband's card (no issues with either), luckily we could pay by cash. The room was booked through Booking.com which was very good value
I've visited Blois end of August, i was provided this room looking at the backyard... actually looking at a generator or something... the room was supposed to open with a touch combination however it didn't and I had to revert to the reception who gave me a heavy key. It was very hot inside the room and it was not equipped with AC and if you open the window you'll risk to have mosquitos visiting you.
On a side note, the reception were very helpful
Pretty standard for a European hotel, having no AC, but in this case, the windows would not even open. It was like a native american sweat lodge all night. Asked for a different room, one where the windows would work, but they said they we all full up.
Outside it was in the 90s, and that is unusual, but this was a bad experiance.
The Ibis Budget is in the centre of Blois and is close to all of the main sites, shops and restaurants. The beds are comfortable and the shower is good although the toilet is a little tight fitting. The one draw back in this hotel is that the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in the rooms and corridors adjacent.
Tip: if you are looking for an English speaking TV Channel you will find it on channel 95. I have stayed here a couple of times previously and didn't find it as I couldn't be bothered going through 100 channels.
The staff are nice here also. They let me use the kitchen to use the microwave in the evening. Breakfast is available but you are probably better off going to the local shops/cafes.
Wifi is good although it slows down at around 10pm when more users are logged in. Parking is available outside the hotel on the local streets. It is free between 6:30pm and 8am. Overall, it is good value for money. If you want more luxury, there is another Ibis around the corner but it is more expensive.
I hope this review was helpful? Enjoy
We thank you for your stay in our hotel.
we are happy that you have appreciate your stay in our hotel.
We are thinking about solutions to attenuate the noise's problem between rooms and corridor.
We hope to see you soon again. Kind regards. Jemaa manager, Ibis budget Blois
