The Germans have two sayings which pretty well sum up this hotel. The first is "klein, aber fein" (small, but does the job), the other "quadratisch, praktisch, gut" (square-shaped, practical, good). Ok the second one actually comes from an advert for a square-shaped chocolate bar called Ritter Sport, but both sayings came to mind when I was trying to sum up this Ibis to a friend.
Let's be clear. It is a 2-star hotel. All Ibis hotels are, that's the proposition Accor makes when you book here. But that is by no means a bad thing. If anything, I arrived expecting very little frills and actually I was surprised by the many things you get for your money.
Sure, the rooms are small, all the same, but they're super practical and very clean. The bathroom is tiny but again does the job perfectly. Just be sure to bring a small bottle of shampoo and shower gel with you as Ibis provides you with a generic bottle of hair and body soap and sometimes hotel soaps aren't the best quality. The bed was comfortable, the wifi in the room fast (you have to pay though) and there were plenty of TV channels to watch.
The lobby and downstairs area is inviting and the €10 breakfast was - I have to say - one of the nicest budget hotel breakfasts I have ever had. There was even salmon and prosecco, should you have felt the need. Breads, hams, eggs, jams, juices, cheeses, cereals, coffee, tea - all in abundance every morning and the staff were very friendly. It helps to greet them back with an upbeat "Guten Morgen!" - never a bad thing to try the language.
The hotel is next door to a Mercure, a little nicer hotel in terms of the Accor family, and there you can dine in their fine restaurant or enjoy a drink at the bar, which we did most nights we were in town for the CeBIT trade fair.
All in all, a great budget hotel, and great value for money. Try it, you'll be surprised how nice Ibis hotels have become.
