Great location, good value, tiny rooms
The restaurant was nice, and had a variety of options to select. Close proximity to public transit (bus, metro, navette) Staff spoke a good amount of English
The room was not very spacious. The pitiful size of the room was only emphasized by the bathroom. I say bathroom because it contained a sink, toilet and shower - but it was the size of a closet. In order to enter the shower, the bathroom door must be open. An awkward dance involving three doors just to take a shower. This could have been easily corrected during the most recent remodel (probably in early 2000's) with a solid curved shower door that slides back in towards the shower. (Keep that in mind Ibis, next remodel you should look for those)
