I stayed for two nights and booked a room with a queen-size bed. The check-in process was pretty quick and no-nonsense, which was great. I got assigned a room on the 7th floor and in a quiet corner as per my request, which was very appreciated. My window overlooked the north and it was great to wake up to the view of Mt. Tangkuban Parahu in the morning. According to the information I read on the website, the room spans 18 square metres but it felt a bit more spacious in reality and the fact that there was a sofa in the room shows that the space available was pretty significant. Room amenities such as TV, WiFi, mini fridge, and air conditioner worked properly. Unfortunately, the electronic safe couldn't be turned on. Also, the window was pretty dirty and had some unsightly paint marks.
However, I quickly realised that the bathroom space had to be sacrificed. The bathroom itself seemed to me like a portable bathroom (like the ones on the aircrafts). Nevertheless, the use of white colour made the bathroom feel bigger and everything in the bathroom worked properly. There was also a hair dryer in the bathroom, which was great. One thing I noticed was there was a metal plate on the split level to the bathroom and this plate had sharp, rough edges. To avoid being injured, I had to be careful every time I entered and exited the bathroom. I sincerely hope that room maintenance could be improved to prevent unwanted injuries in the future.
The breakfast was just okay. The main menu didn't vary greatly but we could have some waffles and noodle soup for breakfast. Staff members were also helpful and quite friendly. The hotel restaurant was not so big but since there weren't many guests, I could enjoy my breakfast while still maintaining good distance with other guests. Also, as a member of Accor ALL programme, I got a welcome drink voucher that I could redeem at the bar. I decided to go with pineapple juice and it was refreshing and nice. The sweetness just suited my preference and if I have a chance to stay at Ibis Pasteur again in the future, I think I know what to choose when redeeming my welcome drink voucher.
Overall, the staying experience was positive and nice. Yes, room maintenance needed some improvement but other than that, everything was fine. Thank you, Ibis Pasteur for the hospitality and service. I look forward to staying again with you.
