Good location, problems with aircon

Hotel is conveniently located in the city. Overall the room is not bad, though we had issue on the air conditioner. It is controlled from control room and because it was still winter when we stayed there, AC was set to heater mode by default. Because we cannot open window in the room (locked), it was stuffy in the room. We needed to request three times (3 days) for the receptionist to change AC into cooling mode. The first time, receptionist simply said that she cannot help us and if we still feel hot, she can provide us with fan. First thing that come in my mind was "What??? A fan???". Second time, another receptionist helped us to change into cooling mode, but after a few hours it was set back to heater mode. It was set properly after the thirst request, and it was after three days of our 5 days staying in Ibis.

Highly frustrating experience

I stayed at this hotel in a number of occasions because of its location. However, the air conditioning system has been "renovated" since July 2013. It is a huge downgrade from the old one. I can't control the temperature in my room anymore. It is centrally controlled by reception. Anyway, I was advised by a female Indian manager that I could request a room that I can control temperature in advance, I followed her advice and asked in advance when I stayed there in April 2014. I was put in a room that I could control the temperature. In this stay, I also sent the hotel an email request a week in advance. I got an acknowledgement that the request has been received. On my arrival, I also reminded them of my request when I checked in. I got told I could control the temperature/ turn on the air conditioning of the room. Subsequently, I realized that I could not turn the air conditioning on. When I started negotiating, I got told they never received my email and it was simply impossible to turn on air conditioning as it was winter. I told them an Indian female manager was able to switch on the air conditioning previously. Later on, they said they could move me to an "apartment" in which I could turn on the A/C. It was presented to me as if I would get an "upgrade". In order to wait for them to clean up the "apartment", I waited about an hour. It turned out that it was not an apartment by any standard. The only difference was that the beds and the room were bigger. Apparently, they did everything in a rush. Part of the carpet was not properly cleaned and was rather dusty. They also turned off the fridge which I did not realize. All of soft drinks were warmed up. I also needed to clean up the water from the melted ice. The shower was very weak and the hot water was very limited. It was actually a substantial downgrade from the original room. Anyway, in the first 24 hours, I was able to control the temperature of the room. Therefore, I did not complain. After that, the nightmare began. The air conditioning would get turned off by reception at around 2-3am at night, every night. I got to call reception at 3am-4am to get them to turn it back on. It seriously affected my sleep. I "enjoyed" my travelling while I was half dreaming. I simply got a room downgrade in exchange for a broken promise.

Close to everything.

New refurbishment and comfortable rooms. it is right in the heart of everything and so easy to get to places with trains and major activities close by. lift are a bit tiresome but for the price this is a top spot. Baggage storage in the basement works well for travellers.
