This is a well located Ibis next to the main railway station. I had pre-booked so I had a swift and friendly check in. The room was on the first floor to the front of the building. I was surprised to see that the first part of the corridor was made up of smoking rooms. I had booked a non-smoker and these were situated at the far end. The room was clean and the normal Ibis room. But for a double room it was quite small. I thought it might be noisy as the taxi rank was immediately below the window but the soundproofing worked pretty well. It was possible to hear trains rumbling past the other side of the hotel occasionally,
The bathroom was tiny. Getting to the toilet was a challenge. There was also a round window which wasn't fully frosted - I must admit that I never felt comfortable using the shower as it was directly opposite the window!
TV was the usual selection of German and world wide channels.
I didn't try the restaurant at all. Breakfast is €10 but there's a McDonalds next door and a much wider selection of take away bakers in the railway station. All much cheaper than the hotel.
The main shopping area and the schloss are a good 25-30 min walk away (2.8km) although you can catch a tram from outside the railway station.
Another Ibis I stayed in recently offered a free safe in the room, continuous free wifi throughout the hotel, a laundry bag and a much larger room. That's why I have only given this Ibis 3 stars. It needs to catch up with others. But overall, a good hotel.
