No phones in rooms to call reception. No desk or table in the rooms. I would always choose Ibis over Moxy for those reasons.
i think probably there are many differences inside same brand across the world, for each brand.

as told, my experience on middle level properties (Novotel/Mercure/Moxy) is based on my stays in Italy and France mainly.

If I compare my recent stays at 2 Moxys in Italy with the average Novotels and Mercures in Italy, I would prefer Moxy for the rest of my life ...

Moxy Milano Linate and Moxy Milano Malpensa have receptions/phone/restaurant/desk/walk in shower. Recent properties with very nice atmosphere if compared with 80% of Italian Novotels or Mercures at less expensive rates. (Even Ibis style are nicer than most of the Novotels/Mercures in Italy ...)

Maybe it would change if you compare the same in Asia or at any very recent or new Novotel/Mercure like the ones seen in some recent reviews here.

And there are of course some exceptions if I think at Novotel Milano Linate or Mercure Bari (where iím Staying just now and itís very nice property, a lot better than some mercure I have been in Asia ...)

i think is difficult to fix some rules to apply without considering there are a lot a lot of differences across the world inside a Brand.

If my stays would be 90% in Asia or in countries where Accor is really at its best on middle level properties, iím Sure my feedback would be completely different.
