“Basic and good”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Basic standard, but a great value for money. We chose Ibis because of its relatively good price in comparison to other hotels in Switzerland and we got what we paid for. The rooms are a good basic standard. The beds are perfectly comfortable. There was a great and big shower in our room. The room was small, but clean and quiet. The breakfast was basic - no warm food (e.g. sausages, scrambled eggs), but there was a good choice of bakery products, cheese, juice, fruits, jam etc. Staff friendly. Not a very good location. The one thing I did not like very much was the fact that our room was quite cold.

Reviewed 15 April 2014

Hotels in Switzerland are generally pretty expensive. The Ibis in Winterthur is reasonably priced, so really value for your money. I was pleasantly surprised by the strong Wifi connection. Great. The room was clean and the bed was good. The staff were friendly and willing to help. A big disappointed was the breakfast. I had my breakfast a bit late around 9 am. There was hardly any bread, no orange juice and overall not good quality. The coffee machine was crap. Decent coffee should be served.

Basic Ibis standard, the room is clean, bed and pillows are comfortable. The shower was surprisingly roomy, though the bathroom in a whole is just enough for one person. Wifi is free and good. Staff was pleasant. Parking capacity might be small if the hotel is mostly occupied but price for parking was very reasonable. The breakfast was okay, just a few cold items on offer, on the expensive side but it's Switzerland, I would definitely not take the breakfast next time. There is a McD and a small shopping mall right in front of hotel. Location is not right in the city but it is not far to go either.

Stayed here for two nights.
This is a basic hotel. Rooms are fine. Clean and have what you need.
The beds are comfortable.
The bar service was OK.
Free WIFI is available in the room.
The hotel is about 15min walk from the train station.
The buffet breakfast was terrible.
Very poor choice and poor quality. Nothing hot on offer. Even though I paid extra for breakfast I skipped it the second day.

Like other Ibis hotels I have stayed in, this is clean, functional, with access to free wifi in room, a bar on site, and pleasant and helpful staff. This is not designed to be a luxury hotel, but it is clean, comfortable and provides all the necessary facilities for business travellers. The hotel is located in a quiet area of Winterthur, within reasonable walking distance of the train station (5-10 minute walk), and to nearby ZHAW (which I was visiting on my trip, about a 10-15 minute walk). I would be more than happy to stay here again on future trips, and would happily recommend it to anyone looking for reasonably priced accomodation for business travel in this area.

Good rooms, excellent breakfast. Even for being in an expensive country like Switzerland, price is good. As every Ibis hotel, they offer great value . The area where it is located is nice, but unfortunately not close to the train station (like 10 minutes walking). There is a bus stop nearby.

Nice little IBIS - same standard as most others, so a functional clean room with all you need.

Attached bar/restaurant simple but ideal with a good choice of food.

About 10 minute walk from Winterthur station.

Good staff happy to help.

Room Tip: Nothing to add here - all rooms pretty much the same!
