The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the train station and located in a quiet street. Cosy room, decent breakfast and underground parking. Highly recommended for a business trip or family week-end as at walking distance from the zoo and city Centre.

We chose to stay here based on our good experiences with other Ibis hotels. This hotel did not disappoint - nice rooms and well located. We are continually impressed by the consistent great service from the staff, everyone friendly, professional and willing to help. Always a pleasure to stay with ibis and we look forward to more future visits!
