We decided to stay in Augsburg for the German leg of a three week family trip. Finding accommodations for four was difficult and so we went with Ibis (we had heard good things about the chain) and booked two rooms. The location and cleanliness were good. Service and accommodations were not so good. First, we had hoped for rooms that were adjoining or next to each other. While we were on the same floor the rooms were on different corridors--Ok, we can live with this. When booking the room we saw that some rooms had two beds and others had one. We were given two rooms with one bed each -- not good when traveling with a 12 year old boy and 17 year old girl. The explanation was that they just converted all their rooms to single larger beds. To the hotel's credit they provided a trundle after much coercing. Another issue was No Air Conditioning (I was expecting more from Germany), We opened the window, but smokers just outside a floor below and a very loud individual next to our room with his window open as well made a relaxing time impossible. Bottomline: Not a good hotel for the family; not a good hotel for the summer months
Augsburg, however, was great and we had fun at the zoo and the gardens surrounding the zoo (there is a great outdoor restaurant called the Park House that serves organic foods). The walkplatz around the main square and the area around the train station was also good and had lots of restaurants to choose from. The cost of the hotel was very reasonable (the reason we went with two rooms). While we had to pay for parking, it was quite convenient.
