I can't make up my mind where to book my stay. The Britannia hotel or Ibis hotel. I'm a student in the Jubilee campus.

'Better' in what respect?

Ibis is a large international chain and its hotels are all pretty much of a muchness in terms of cleanliness, facilities etc. You can check reviews for both on Tripadvisor:

Ibis tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Revi...

Britannia tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Revi...

or on booking.com where reviews are only from people who have booked through the site and completed their stay:

Ibis: booking.com/hotel/gb/ibis-no...

Britannia: booking.com/hotel/gb/britann...

I've used booking.com almost exclusively for more than 10 years and have found the reviews to be accurate. For that reason alone, the Ibis score of 8.3 against the Britannia's 6.9 means I'd choose the former.

If rates don't make much difference then I think the reviews will help you make your choice.

I would go for the Ibis. Although I haven't stayed in the Nottingham one, I have stayed in others, and they are consistent, clean and modern.

Britannia tend to take over large, older, hotels and run them on a shoestring. I've stayed in Britannia hotels in Liverpool and Manchester, and been to a function at the Britannia in Nottingham, and I would avoid them in future.

Have stayed in Ibis hotels all over the world. The room design are pretty much the same throughout the Ibis hotels. I have only had one bad stay and that was in Tangiers. I would rate the Ibis chain as at least an 8 or in some cases higher. They are part of the Accor group. I would have no hesitation in staying at the one you are inquiring about. If you decide to stay, check the price on booking.com and if it is the same price then book directly with the hotel. Less stress and headaches if something should go wrong. Better to work directly with the hotel than through a third party.
