    Good value, easy car parking on/off premises”

    Room is more spacious than typical ibis, clean and odor free. Hotel location is in the middle of all attractions, excellent. Car parking on premises is limited but street parking is plentiful. No problems for parking. Staff that checked us in did not have smiles and she was a bit cool looking, not considered friendly by us, however the Asian guy who checked us out was amazing.

    Location, clean, affordable price

    Hotel located arround the city, 5-8min walk from Rotorua I-site center, hotel in a perfect location next to Novotel, near to eating place, shops, and just next to the lake. Room is very clean, check in and check out very convenient and fast. The only problem is the PILLOW, I can say this is the worst pillow i ever had, its not hard not soft but flat.. The feather is too little for a pillow, even you put two pillow, the feather still drop down to flat and really not comfortable for sleep. Overall is good and we will be back.

    Location and views, parking

    Because it is so close to the lake and to town , you can leave your car in the under cover car park below the building. You can walk everywhere and close to cafes and hotel bars and night clubs and close to the attractions. Very nice lake views, good prices for a smaller basic room that has air conditioning. Not much sulphur smell in this hotel! It has a good shower and a firm bed and sky TV.

    Overall, the hotel is a good hotel. The place is is very comfortable and I believe among the best in town. The staff are very well trained and make you feel at home. The check-in was very quick. The room has all the basic needs. The location is perfect, parking is free and in the same building. 5 min walk to the best restaurants in town. I specially would like to thank Nicole at the reception. She made our stay even better. I definitely plan to stay there again if I visit Rotorua.

    Would not stay here again ”

    I booked a king room. As I checked into the hotel the person on reception was very friendly and told me there was only a room on the ground floor. She confirmed there was a bath. On getting into the room the bed was a double not a king, there was no bath and the room was right next to the front door so very noisy. As I checked out I told the staff member the room was very noisy and I was woken up multiple times and she wondered why I was given that room as I did not check in late. Commisersted with me and said would take to management. That's nice but doesn't help me. I would never stay here again. Value for money is poor.

    Don’t expect much”

    It’s an Ibis so wasn’t expecting much - wouldn’t call their room service menu a menu and the movie on demand system didn’t work the whole stay... My room was on the ground floor by the entrance so if left the curtains opened I quickly became a zoo attraction for the tour groups.. Hotel location is great with plenty of street parking.. I’d stay at the Novotel over Ibis in the future for basically same price

Lovely bar/restaurant area with Christmas decorations and candles making it homely. The location is very central with shops bars and restaurants just 5 mins walk away. There are gondolas just 10 mins drive away that take you to the top if the mountain with wonderful views and a very nice cafe/ restaurant.

    Impressive ”

    Receptionists are all excellent. Just the housekeeping, need to improve. They don't give enough little towel, shampoo & no conditioner unless you ask for. They talked loud in the corridor & went in our room early. So, remember to hang DND. The Site is a bit far from good Chinese restaurant which located at main road, before turning into the main area of tourist. If you are not seeking Chinese food, many restaurants nearby, just the portion is rather small & more expensive. The Washing machine & Dryer is a surprise to us. Along our journey in Sydney, Melbourne & Phillip Island, this hotel is the best among all others. Thanks very much especially their courtesy and intention to help always :)

    Ibis hotels have small rooms but they are very clean and the staff is always friendly and this Ibis one is no exception. Ended up parking the car and walking around the downtown area from the hotel. It's close to the lake and the walking bar street so was easy to stumble home after a night out.

    Friendly staff, great room

    Overall is good. Staff are very friendly and the room is big and new in IBIS's term. The bed is really comfy! It is just a 5 min walk to the restaurants so you could just park your car and walk. The carpark at the basement is rather tiny though although there are ample street parking lots in front of the hotel. There is also a laundry on site. Only cost 2 dollar for washing/drying. The hot breakfast is pretty standard and the internet speed is relatively fast. I am a accor silver member so I get free internet. You could pay to get a faster speed internet though.
