I had a good time at Ibis Augsburg Koenigsplatz (stayed there for 2 days). Check-in was fast and efficient (the lady at the reception and most other hotel employees were friendly, with the exception of one member of the reception staff, who appeared standoffish when asked a routine question regarding the charger system for a mobile phone). One of the reception ladies offered to set a wake up call for me when she noticed that I was having trouble following the instructions in the telephone manual in the room and I really appreciated that. The only two things that took me aback (to a degree) was that I had to pay for my whole stay on the very first evening (despite the e-mail communication with the hotel seemingly indicating otherwise) and that MasterCards (credit) were not accepted by the hotel machine (though there were no issues with VisaCards/debit). There was actually free Wifi in my room (which was located on the second floor) and the speed was acceptable, but I was constantly asked to reconnect and fill in a short form (once every hour or so) to have my Internet restored. I may have simply been lucky, because the impression I got was that only a small percentage of the rooms offered this service free of charge. You could also bring your laptop downstairs (in the hotel lobby) to take advantage of the wireless Internet if you are unable to connect in your room (the staff provide you with the necessary instructions, but the process of logging in and "releasing" the Internet is a bit cumbersome). However, it's usually slightly noisy in the lobby and there are quite a few people around, so you would likely feel a bit unnerved if you value your privacy.
The hotel room I was in was quite large and very clean (and there was a nice view to the city centre). Everything from the TV set to the bathroom appliances functioned properly and the bed was quite comfortable. There were absolutely no issues with regard to noise pollution.
I never tried the breakfast or ate in the restaurant, so I can't comment on that, but there are quite a few bakeries, convenience stores, a Mcdonald's franchise and pizza outlets nearby. The location is very convenient (it's a 10 to 15 minute walk from the central train station and the hotel is quite close to the city centre). You could get a taxi in the vicinity of the hotel with relative ease.
All in all, very good for a short business or holiday stay.
