(2 star hotel)
including 8 days parking
from the airport
Enjoy the unbeatable convenience of staying just a short stroll away from the terminal, without making a dent in your holiday budget, at the brand new Ibis Budget at Luton airport. From the hotel it's a simple, 10 minute walk to the check-in desks meaning you could treat yourself to a few more minutes shut eye or tuck into a delicious continental breakfast.
The hotel itself has a welcoming and modern vibe with friendly staff on hand to help. The rooms are comfortable, streamlined and clean, equipped with all the essentials including an en-suite bathroom, TV, and free wifi.
There isn't a restaurant on-site however there is a 24 hour snack bar serving a range of hot and cold food and drinks. Breakfast at the hotel is a continental buffet (unlimited juice, toast, croissants, crusty baguettes, deli meats, jams and spreads) and is served from 4am-10am.
Booking was easy however the hotel didn't have our reservation but they did give us a room no problem. Ibis budget was excellent. Parking at airparks is very convenient and runs smoothly.Miss Myers (Luton Ibis Budget)
Hotel was very good had difficulty finding the car park, was very glad we dropped the class at hotel first prior to parking car as bus stop was a long way across a very busy road to hotel.Mrs Reilly (Luton Ibis Budget)
Hotel was a little less than we would have liked but we did book the budget hotel so maybe expected too muchMrs Crawford (Luton Ibis Budget)
Our 2-yr old car blew up on the way to the overnight hotel (requiring a new engine). Waited 2 1/2 hrs to be picked up by breakdown service then within 10 minutes of getting picked up and back on to motorway, we came across an accident blocking all southbound lanes where we were further delayed by 2 hours. Tried many times throughout this ordeal to ring both hotel and car park to explain that we would be arriving very very late and eventually to say we'd missed the hotel altogether and gone straight to the car park. We never got through to anyone!Mr Gamble (Luton Ibis Budget)
On our return, our flight was delayed over an hour and when we got outside to get the shuttle bus it drove off empty just as we got to it. We waved at the driver who looked and carried on. Rang the car park and they said, quite uncaringly, another will be along in 20 mins. We had a horrendous journey ahead of us in a pick up truck which took us 6 hours.
The car park, and hotel, only added to the strain we were already feeling and coming home to deal with after what was to be a much needed break but didn't turn out to be.
Never again will we use this service. We have given 3 star only on the basis that a couple of the car parking staff were helpful. The service generally was not as hoped and as for the hotel, never again either - dreadful that no-one answered the phone. Imagine if we'd arrived there at 2am and not been able to get in! No, never again.
Nice clean hotel for the night before our flight from LutonMiss Silver (Luton Ibis Budget)
The parking was so straight forward and stress free - would use both again

Ibis Budget with parking at Airparks room-only procedures
On the day of your stay:
Drive to Airparks first and leave your car in an arrivals bay. Remember to take note of your lane number.
Check in using one of the self-service machines, and you’ll be given a ticket which you’ll need keep hold of until you return. You’ll also receive a tag which you need to attach to your keys.
Drop your keys into the key-drop box outside reception – make sure you put them in the correct box for your lane number – and catch the shuttle bus to the hotel. It runs every 20 minutes and takes around 14 minutes. It’s included in the price.
Getting from the hotel to the airport:
On the day of your flight check out of the hotel and make your way to the airport. You can walk it in around 10 minutes.
There's also a bus that takes around 5 minutes, costing £1.60pp. Alternatively, reception can also book you a taxi to the airport, for around £8 each way.
The shuttle buses back to the car park leave from bay 17. You'll need to show the ticket you were given at check-in to the driver.
Make your way to the check-out shelter and follow the instructions on the key dispenser. Then collect your car and drive to the exit barrier - you'll need to insert your ticket to scan the barcode attached to your keys, and then the barrier will lift.
