Whenever visiting Hannover, the choice is either the Intercity (see my review) or this Ibis Budget. This hotel has been present since I can remember, behind the train station, next to a SuiteHotel (same Accor chain) and a small shopping centre (with a very large Kaufland supermarket that is open until very late).
The rates are usually favourable and you just have to walk through the station and you are in the heart of Hannover. Rooms here have been partially re-modernised recently with the new Ibis Budget style that has been rolled out. Standard rooms, clean, en-suite, free WiFi Internet, flat screen TV. One small gripe is that the chair has been replaced with a plastic stool, but for the room rate charged this is a very minor gripe.
Even if you have a room facing the back of the train station, it's not very noisy, unless you are one who likes to have a window open. With the rooms featuring air-con, then the window should naturally be kept closed. Else ask for a room away facing towards the back and it will be extremely peaceful.
I never take the breakfast here, the station and city has a huge choice of options, I never take breakfast at Ibis Budget properties.
It's an ideal hotel for one or two nights if you are looking for somewhere to crash out. However, if the Intercity is a few Euros more, then that should be where you're heading. For the cost conscious, then this is definitely the hotel for you.
