Who doesn’t love a night away in a nice hotel? Well, a few weeks ago I spent a night in the Ibis Hotel in Leeds. Here is my review of my stay.
Just to start off, this isn’t a sponsored post or ad, I just want to share my opinion on the hotel.
A friend and I decided to book a hotel room for a hen do we were attending. Even though I live in Leeds we thought it would be easier and a bit of a treat to stay in a hotel for the night. The hotel of choice was the Ibis Hotel, located on Marlborough Street just out of the city centre. The old Yorkshire Post landmark is just around the corner and can be seen from the hotel.
It was really easy to check in
Arriving at the hotel, we only had to provide our name and the staff provided us with our room key. A few instructions and directions later and we were in our room.
For £80 we bagged a double room for the two of us with the price including breakfast. I don’t think that is half bad for a night’s stay
The room was a decent size with a double bed and en-suite style bathroom. The bathroom reminded me of a caravan bathroom, compact but well equipped. The shower was good and easy to use, with a folding door shower screen. The hotel provides toiletries too, which are part of their Planet 21 programme. The toiletries include eco-certified soap, shower gel and shampoo.
A good size wardrobe/clothing storage area made up one corner of the room with extra pillows stored there. A floor length mirror was a bonus, and a great addition, especially as we got ready for the
This room was perfect for a night’s
The Ibis Hotel has a bar area as you enter, which was well stocked and reasonably priced for a hotel. It is known as ‘Fogg’s’, and
There was a variety of seating areas including booths, tables with chess boards and sofas. There is also a computer or two for guests to use.
We had a drink in the bar before heading out to meet the rest of the hen party. Sitting near the window we had a great opportunity to people watch and watch the comings and goings of other guests.
The bar area also doubles up as the breakfast area, which leads me onto the next part of this post.
As I mentioned further above we paid £80 for the room and breakfast, with breakfast costing £8 each. The hotel breakfast is unlimited so you can really fill your boots for a great price! I opted to try the yoghurt and granola mix first, followed by a small cooked breakfast of bacon, scrambled eggs, sausage and beans. My favourite thing about the breakfast was the coffee machine, which had quite a lot of choice of hot drinks. I know simple things impress me! The macchiato latte I chose was delicious though.
Check out was really simple at the Ibis Hotel with a key drop box. This is similar to other hotels where you post your room key when you leave the hotel. Check out time was 12 p.m,

I thought the Ibis Hotel in Leeds was perfect for our one night stay, but I would have happily stayed more than one night. If you are ever looking to stay over in Leeds I would 100% recommend this hotel, decent price and
