“Good if the cheapest around by far!”
Reviewed 21 January 2013 via mobile

I actually stayed at this hotel twice whilst en-route to Munich and back to the UK,

The first time parking was €9 for the night and I left the car outside in the secure compound as it was empty. For my return, I had a compliment of luggage so decided to park it in the hotel's underground garage. I had thought this would be at a cost but was given it gratis for the night. Bonus!

Check-in was smooth on both occasions, although the guy at reception on the second occasion seemed a little hostile towards some non French-speakers. That said, this is the case in most French-speaking countries. On the second occasion, the room had insufficient heating (it was 5 below outside!) but we were changed rooms quickly and efficiently, and the new room had very effective heating,

The rooms themselves were not exactly the Marriott but adequately designed nonetheless. Triple rooms have a bunk bed above the normal double bed, which is what I had on the second occasion as we were two males; interestingly this type of room proved cheaper than a standard double! One or two bits of trim were missing or loose but nothing major, and as this is a budget hotel these foibles can be somewhat overlooked. The beds were comfortable enough although, as previous reviews have stated, the pillows were somewhat on the thin side,

Breakfast was a fairly primitive affair, being chiefly composed of cereals, bread and jam; it really was best to eat lots of it in order to justify the €7.50 price tag, especially as with a car, it would be easy to just buy a few croissants from the nearby petrol station for a fraction of the cost. However a) it was January so going out of the hotel involved going into the cold and b) we received breakfast free on the second occasion, exact reason unknown but another bonus!

In conclusion, I would choose this hotel again if it was the cheapest by miles (the Campanile was nearly as cheap but I was slightly put off by the look of the buildings) but would possibly spend a little more and stay at the normal Ibis or Holiday Inn should I find myself driving past the area sometime in the near future. Maybe I just got lucky with all the gratuities of the second occasion, as the total price of a night's stay can tot up quite considerably otherwise!

We were 3 persons, who traveled.. Well, comparing to ibis budget in Paris in Brugge, i liked it most. The room was very modern, quiet, with nice lighting. Light green+white coloured walls gave the positive atmosphere.
The toilet and shower were separated.. The toilet was very dirty..

Nothing special, like most very cheap but modern hotels. The room was nice and well functioning, the window gave little sound proofing against the road next to hotel (and flights from the airport, but they close at night).
Breakfast is available for 7,50 Euro and first morning at 7:30 it was nice, next day I came in at 8, at there was a line from reception, through a hallway and all the way up to the buffet. All seats were taken, fresh bread was sold out (only buns and presliced bread) and tea only if you wanted fruit tea. While the first morning was fine, the second was a disaster. Never again. Se be careful if you want breakfast.
They offer a free drink if you dine in neighbouring Ibis hotel, but the restaurant is closed on Thursday evenings. Instead the reception can call for a pizza or chicken wing meal, comes within 45 minutes and is actually not bad (11 Euro for a pizza, 6 chicken wings and a coke, enough for 2 people or one with an appetite)

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the other Ibis hotel

On our way back to the UK from Austria after a road trip, we arrived at this hotel in rush hour and expected the usual pandemonium that usually hits hotel receptions at that time. But no! The lobby was empty, and the friendly clerk booked us in with no fuss whatsoever. The room was small, but perfectly formed, with a dinky shower room and a sink, next door to a tiny loo.The beds were narrow but comfy, and the duvets were thick and warm.After unpacking, it was off to its sister Ibis across the car park. The stella artois was excellent and we were given free nibbles by the barman. Hungry as you like, we were seated in a restaurant with less atmosphere than the moon, and then everything went wrong .After waiting for ages to be served, the surly staff eventually took our order. By the time the food came back, I'd forgotten what I had ordered. My travelling companion had ordered ribs, but was presented with a dish that was cold, tough, tasteless and so far removed from ribs that he refused to pay for them. The 'manager' got shirty, and informed us that 'no-one else has complained, so the dish must have been good'. All the other diners were enjoying what was shaping up to a verbal sparring contest, but were denied this by my colleague stating that 'Maybe these people are too intimidated to complain, but I'm not'.
This hotel is almost twice the price than the Budget Ibis, but everyone eats here. Please don't.

which is an airport hotel useful for staying near the airport for an early flight. Rooms are very spartan with not many amenities, but you are likely only staying for a bed for a night so you don't need much. Many arrive on the convenient shuttle bus from the airport, so the front desk gets a bit overwhelmed at those times. The front desk clerk does his best to juggle two people at a time to speed up the checkin process. Did not try the breakfast so cannot comment on that. Tried to eat at the restaurant across at the adjacent Ibis Style hotel, but could not get a table as they were grossly understaffed.
Don't expect more than a room with a bed and shower and you will not be disappointed.
