“Just OK but cheap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012

This hotel is now called budget ibis budget Mainz. I found the person working not friendly at all. It is far from anything nice, but it was cheap. Had no problem with wifi. Shower, TV and bed was Ok. No telephone and just a code to enter the room and building. I believe check in closes at 10 pm.

Room Tip: There is nothing to look at anywhere around so it doesn't matter.

Driving southbound between Amsterdam,ND and The Algau Region in Germany we were glad we chose this hotel for the night. Clean, good price including breakfast and a modern concept of confort that has everything you need for a good nigths rest before going back to the autobahn...
A close-by italian restaurant reccomended by the hotel was also a good surprise.
Stayed for one night last August 24.

I stayed 1 night. You get what you pay for: a bed( one on top of the other), a shower, a clean room, a toilet, free wi-fi and tv. Free parking, if you could find a parking space, i've been coming at 10pm, not an easy task at this time.
Breakfast was very basic-coffee, toasts, hard boiled eggs, muesli, orange juice.
Otherwise quiet area, sleep well.

I stayed 1 night to cut my car travel into some shorter legs and was looking for an ETAP as you usually know what to expect for a very reasonable price.
Having stayed in several ETAP hotels before, this one in Mainz south was a positive surprise as it seemed to be either newer than others or recently renovated. You get what you pay for: a bed, a shower, a clean room. What i find worth to remark is the free WiFi access which is still not standard in some far more sophisticated places. The easy access from the motorway was an additional criteria which made it a good choice for the purpose of my stay. An additional asset that comes with this ETAP is the supermarket in the back of the building: normally ETAPs are in the middle of nowhere but here you can do some shopping a few steps away.
I personally do not like the sleeping comfort that much, but for 1 night to relax from driving it is absolutely OK. The shower is tight, but sufficient and (taking the risk to repeat myself) it is absolutely clean in the rooms.
I had no breakfast and no contact with reception, so unable to comment on this.
Overall the ETAP hotel provides a good value for money, a calculable experience in a slightly sterile environment.

If you are claustrophobic, then this place will not be suitable as the toilet is small, windowless and makes you feel locked in.

Although the room is small, it's clean and tidy. It reminds us of the days in a student's dormitory but with the added luxury of private facilities. The shower has a most interesting door with a hole (see photo)! So one has to be extra careful to avoid splashiing water all over the carpet. Also bear in mind this means you will not have any privacy both in and outside of the shower!

Breakfast is basic but adequate. Free in-room wi-fi is available. Tea/coffee/snack vending machine is available in lounge. There is a supermarket next to the hotel, and a nice, cheap trattoria / pizzeria nearby. Overall, it offers good value budget accommodation with easy access to the city centre.

Room Tip: Note the check-in time. Self-check available when front desk not attended.
