We had just stayed at another Ibis Budget that we liked very well. This had almost identical décor (though no seats on the toilets - seems to be common in France). The rooms are snug but reasonably attractive. The toilet did not function properly. I used it when we arrived and although it dumped a lot of water in the bowl, the contents went no where. I explained this to the manager. He told me a refund was impossible and no other rooms available.
Friendly personel; Hotel difficult to find (behind Hertz sign); very sober entree; paint falling of the outside; room smelling like smoke; hairs in my bed (not mine); spots in the blanket (not mine); ripped sheets; used ear pin in bath room; sober braekfast, ...
The hotel manager was a nice person but he seemed to be alone working at the hotel (besides a waitress) I booked the hotel because it was close to the business area however no taxi wanted to give me a lift because the run was too short. The room smelt quite bad (like bathroom sink). The hotel didn't have wireless available although it was advertised in the booking website. The hotel sign was actually not Balladins hotel but something else I don't remember so it took a long time to get there because the taxi driver from the airport dind't know where it was.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Good dinner. Hard to find the hotel, quite hidden.
Room was a good size and very clean. Bathroom was excellent. Food and service in the restaurant were a real let down.
Spacious room and bed. Crisp and clean linen. Helpful and professional staff. Excellent value. Quiet location.
Nice, spacious room. Very noisy party going on downstairs.
The room was very clean with excellent bathroom facilities, and the beds very comfortable with quality bed linen. very limited for food on the evening we stayed. But breakfast did make up for that, although a little bit too expensive.
Better facilities than many in the immediate vicinity, good, value for money,restaurant, friendly helpful staff Poor English language TV!
Good Value for money, close to supermarket
The room and bath were clean and in nice condition. The hotel has free wireless internet, which we find very useful. We arrived at the hotel about 17:00, on July 13th. The door was locked, and there was no one at the reception desk. A page on the door showed our name, as a new arrival, and indicated the room number where we would be staying, but we could not enter through the locked door. A message said to call the hotel phone number, but we had no phone to call from. Another hotel guest eventually let us in, and told us the combination to the electronic lock on the hotel door. Our key was in the door to our room. The next morning, a receptionist was at the hotel desk.
Hotel very clean and quiet. Hotel staff nice
Reasonable proximity to Versailles Small room for 3 people
very quiet hotel in the country near von Versailles or Paris with the high way
Convenient for visiting Paris and Versailles Although it was relatively out of the way, it was not quiet during the night as it's in the middle of an industrial estate. Also a coach party arrived around 11:30pm and the coach sat with its engine running for about 20minutes. The shower didn't work as the pipe was full of holes.
Clean and good after hours service. The toilet extraction fan does not seem to work very well.
With the smoking ban now extended to France the opening onto the hotel grounds was a boon. In the bathroom the shower head was fitted about 2 metres off the bath floor. Ok for people of restricted growth but not very appropriate for average height people.
Close to Versaille and Paris
Reasonably priced and equipped. Close to restaurants and a walking distance to the business center in Guyancourt. I plan to stay there again.
The restaurant and bar were closed on Sunday. Breakfast was incomplete most of the times.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They went to great lengths to ensure all our enquiries were dealt with properly. Nothing open at the weekend. No bar or restaurant. Very dissapointing.
The hotel is centeraly located near the train station (1 min.).
The rooms were small (but clean and stylish) and had no air conditioning except a window.
Restaurant and staff organization ( very kind ) - I chosen this hotel for its position and its fair.
The hotel is located near a beautiful park and a lake, the way to the center of Guyancourt through this park is very pleasant, though rather long. The hotel staff is very polite and well-disposed. Internet service is comfortable. The air conditioner was not effective enough during such a hot weather that was at the end of June, 2010. The table and chair in the room are good for the, but are not suitable for a work with paper and documents. A translucent curtain made of white tulle should be hung on the window, as the window looking at a car park, where inside the room is clearly visible.
Functional room, good dinner and breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. Free internet that actually worked!
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Golf and tennis courts, swimming pool. Close to Versales and miniature France park. Free wi-fi. Breakfast for extra pay
the staff was very helpfull. The accomodation was ok.
Room service dinner ordered 9pm took 1h40 to arrive. As some consolation, they removed any charge for this without question.
Well located for travellers from Calais to the South of France. Quiet location The pillows were absolutely appalling - like light marshmallow - and that made it impossible to get a good night's sleep. The restaurant and bar personnel had the classic Parisian indifference to good service, which should have been trained out of them.
You can walk to the famous all-france-open golf course. Some staffs are not kind. Hard to find the hotel.
Room very comfortable, clean and quiet. Didn't like the staff who were somewhat indifferent to us and other guests. Staff could do with improving on their customer skills.
Friendly and helful staff, good location (5 minutes from Versailles, and I am sure in summer Golf players enjoy the stay and the swimming pool). it was very calm, children friendly and we had an excellent dinner in the hotel's restaurant (very good quality!)
Quiet and accessible
Helpfull, English speaking staff, excellent facilities, very clean No English tv channels
Staff were extremely helpful. Arrived early, allocated room not ready, so alternative room, which was ready, was provided instead. Receptionists spoke good English. Ample parking available.
It is noisy, you can hear neighbors shutting their bedroom doors
Good comfortable room. No restuarant for evening meals.
It was close to where I had to visit Very Basic. The Bar consisted of cans to drink in your room and only english language channel on TV was news.
Excellent value for money. Good location for Versailles.Very clean.
It was easy to book and the management were friendly and the hotel and parking were secure. Facilities were somewhat primitive and breakfast ended at 9am
Disappointing the Flying Blue Miles cannot be booked however it is mentioned on the hotel website!
The hotel is basic, clean and ideal for business people or people in transit on long journeys No
Map directions poor. Non English speaking at hotel. Expected to be in Versailles :-(
Very nice hotel close to Versailles. Comfort, spacious and clean room,free parking and good breakfast for a reasonable price..
It vas very convenient to Versailles
hair dresser session causing lots of hair in the lobby and even stench of peroxide in restaurant!
the food and the very friendly manor of all your staff
We really enjoyed it, everything was very good. It was a bit difficult to find it - I suggest to leave some leaflet with a map at the local Tourist Office, as they did not know the precise directions of the hotel.
Room was comfortable, breakfast was very good and the staff very helpful and spoke English.
the location, near to Versailles, but everything else is a big cheating... The pictures what we saw on the internet in the reality was completelly different. In the garden of the hotel there is two little house, where originally they kept the garden tools ...and after they transfered as a hotel room...no isolation, all walls were humid and mouldy , was a strong mildew smell, since i have an asthma, i could not really sleep well all night long.The wall's painting was coming down, the blanket was dirty We asked to change the room, so we got the next door "garden tools room " since it had a common wall with the previous one it was the same condition. and all this things for 78 euro, i would never recommend to sleep there. Internet which was published also on the website of course in a garden tool suite,,,didn't work
I liked the friendly staff and not having to fill in a form the moment you arrive, or even later. Proper toilet rolls needed please!!! The tiny little pink tissues were totally inadaquate.
Very cosy out of the way hotel. Convenient for Versailles and the Chateau as I had a car.
Well located to visit Versailles if you have a car. Free parking.
Overall it was a very pleasant stay There were no bad points to speak of
Staff very friendly. Rooms had nice space. Difficult to find. Few amenities within walking distance.
Breakfast was adequate. Towels changed every day and toiletries available. Room was clean and comfortable and free wifi in the room. Free parking. No english tv available without paying and no restaurants close by, nearest bars were about 20mins walk. Staff not too helpful and garden was very tiny, advert for hotel a bit misleading regarding the garden. No teamaking facilities in room. Late trains from Paris do not go directly to St. Cyr L'ecole so had to get a taxi back late at night from Versailles and no-one explained this to us.
Connected rooms beside the main building are good choice for family with more than four member.
The room was neat and tidy enough for the price. Beware, The hotel door closes at 11:00pm
Nice quiet hotel and location. Close proximity to Versailles and train station. The shower hose holder was broken and we had to improvise by attaching the shower hose to the holder with a sock.
I was very unfortunate as I had a room at the railside track. Where workers had to work throught the night for maintenance on the track. This work created a lot of noise so I couldn't catch sleep untel 3.30 in the morning. resulting in a very bad start the next morning. In the breakfast area the toaster and the orange juice machine was broken. The room was ready for a fresh painting.
Absolutely nothing. The heat hardly worked and it was freezing that night. It was almost like being in a prision cell. Nope
nothing. horrible hotel everything
Convenient and comfortable - having Air Conditioning was great during the warmer days we experienced in Paris, An extra chair would be helpful, especially when there are two people.
Facilities need upgrade, no shower head etc
very basic, no resturant facilities without driving to them.
easy to use and access the rooms key - check-in / check-out with an electronic system the hotel corresponds and offers what you pay for it, so nothing to complain, except it is quite isolated and not easy to get their by transports. Difficult to have a taxi on business schedules
Good value for money Over head bed caused a few bumped heads. No fresh fruit at breakfast
Good location to access public transportation. Fair price. Decent TV chanels. Confortable bed. Cleanliness is not their fort. I satayed for 2 wweks and in that time they never change the sheets
Absolutely nothing. We only needed a bed for the night which is why I decided to go budget and used to stay in these places when I lived in France 10 years ago and they were always ok. However, this one was awful. It is right next to a main train line so very noisy. We only had one light in the room that worked as the other was broken. The whole room stank of cigarettes. It had permeated the pillows and all the bedding and it was very strong. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room too according to the sign on the door so obviously they don't check their rooms very often. The bathroom was very old and in poor condition. Would not recommend staying there and obviously the budget sector has gone downhill since I was there.
Small room and affordable. Good location in the city. Quiet. We went with a bunk bed setup, and one of the days they did not make the bed for the bunk bed (top bed). The front desk did not speak a lot of English, but we managed to get the information we needed.
