First ibis budget opens in France

First ibis budget opens in France

The ibis budget Grenoble Sud Seyssins is the first ibis budget establishment to open in France.

The hotel is in a countryside location, not far from the Alps and only 5km from Grenoble. It has 83 rooms, each with a view of the Vercors Mountains which are less than 10 minutes away and will delight nature lovers and mountain enthusiasts.  Sport aficionados will also enjoy the Golf de Seyssins course just 100 meters from the hotel and a cycle path that starts in front of the hotel entrance and follows the Drac River for several dozen kilometers.

The hotel’s modern and nature-inspired interior design was created by architect agency Arche 5. The central color scheme is green, reminiscent of the Vercors Mountains and is in keeping with the new “Cocoon & Design” room concept inaugurated in 2009 and created by designer Paul Priestman and Accor’s Innovation & Design team.  The cocoon concept is the result of in-depth work on hotel welcome areas and rooms to improve the quality of the stay for customers. 

The room design is based on the concepts of flexibility, flow and well-being.  A sense of spaciousness and brightness is created by the lack of partitions and the use of luminous color schemes: blue, green or orange combined with white. The atmosphere is both modern and intimate.

Guests will be seduced by the many contemporary features: touch-sensitive reading and mirror lights, a flat screen TV with a media hub.  All the rooms are cleverly equipped and illustrate ibis budget’s constant commitment to facilitating its clients’ stay.


The room is also designed to be environmentally friendly.  The construction specifications include as many sustainable development criteria as possible: for example all the rooms are equipped with energy efficient lighting and flow regulators on all faucets and showerheads.
