Brighton Ibis Hotel
One of Brighton’s newest hotels is perhaps the city’s most convenient for rail travellers, being just a minute or so from Brighton Train Station.
The Brighton Ibis Hotel opened early in 2013 and is already establishing itself as a stalwart stay. If you’re looking for easy access to the station and the city centre shops on a budget, then this is probably your best bet in a city that’s crammed with overpriced BnBs and hotels of varying quality.
A double room is of reasonable size, though fairly generic as you’d expect, with free Wi-Fi, pod-like bathrooms equipped with powerful showers and some with windows that open out to fairly fine views over the city’s skyline.
There’s a Budgens supermarket just two doors down which is open 24 hours a day, plus numerous take-aways, shops, pubs and cafe Coho, which is rated highly among locals and commuters alike for its smooth gourmet coffee and daily home-baked cakes.
Being on Queen’s Road, one of the city’s main thoroughfares, the Ibis is a simple 10 minute walk down to the seafront and Brighton Pier.
We didn’t pay extra for the unlimited breakfast buffet, but Fogg’s Bar and reception seemed like a perfectly pleasant space to hang out, with subdued, modern, inoffensive decor, a internet PC booth. It serves above average coffee, which we could take up to our room.
Desk staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area, useful for us as this was where we stayed when coming to Brighton to suss out flats and neighbourhoods prior to our move here.
The Ibis is a two minute walk from Brighton’s main train Station on Queen’s Road. You can see the hotel from the station entrance.
Double rooms from £60 per night.
This modern railway hotel was approved by Railway Stays.
