“Starting point for excursions and best bed in Switzerland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

For some 65 CHF (5 CHF for car park included), a very comfortable stay and a good starting point to visit Schaffhausen, the Rhine Falls, Konstanz and Stein am Rhein. Even Zurich if you want. Winterthur itself is an ordinary town, not worth more than an hour visiting, but I knew that. I only came for the price (special offer on a Friday) and the bed, huge and provided with thick hard mattress and a second soft layer on top, which gives that extra comfort. Don´t expect hot dishes for the breakfast buffet, but good enough for 15 CHF, instead of the usual 25-39 CHF in swiss hotels. Several fast food restaurants in the surroundings, if you feel like it.

The hotel is well placed near the centre of Winterthur and a 20 minute drive from Zurich airport. Unfortunately the price is very high for the level of hotel and in addition you need to pay for the parking. The bar and restaurant are much nicer than you would normally expect in an Ibis and Wifi in the reception area is free of charge though unfortunately not in the rooms.

Other reviews are on the money: IBIS is consistent at least. Minimum size rooms - see the photos others have posted. But on the low end of the cost scale for Switzerland. Lobby WiFi was OK. Ice. What is it about getting some ice that freaks out the Swiss? A/C barely works (as other reviews say) - I was told there are Swiss rules that prohibit room temps below 22C, but our room was 26C at the coolest point. Pillows were rocks - one only per person - and asking for an extra? Thought I was asking for another ice cube! Took real work to find one spare! Good train connections, but about a 15-20 minute walk to the station. Again as others have said, a nice big convenience store/gas station (and a McDonalds) right next door. Restaurant looked very nice, but was closed for a private dinner the night we were there.
