Great Weekend stay

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Journey627144 Family - 29/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

It was our first stay at Ibis Hotel in Ettlingen. Nice designed rooms, great breakfast with kids' corner and very kind staff. The only thing we missed was a fridge in the room as it was very hot outside during our stay.

Thank you so much for a lovely review of our ibis Styles and for taking the time to share such great feedback :) I am so glad that you and your family enjoy your stay - It was very very hot in Ettlingen - thankfully, the air conditioning made the heat bearable. Fridges are on request at the reception but were already all taken :( Thank you again and hope to see you in the future! Best wishes F. Chopin

Excellent gateway stay for the Black Forest

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Roger E Couples - 17/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

An excellent hotel in a very quiet old fashioned town that is a perfect place to stay while exploring the northern Black Forest. The staff were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the town and area. The hotel was modern, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent as were the staff that were overseeing it. As fast as a dish was emptied it was refilled and at no time was anybody waiting for food or a table to sit at. A top grade hotel.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review of the hotel and for taking the time to leave your feedback! I am so pleased to hear that you had such a good time with us! We do hope you return again in the future and thank you again for mentioning that members of staff were helpful and played a part in your positive impression. Best wishes F. Chopin

Ross C Solo travel - 15/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

A rather pleasing place to stop overnight, relax & unwind after a long drive. The town is a two minute walk away and quaint. Lots to see but on my arrival there was a ‘shopping festivity’ with stilt walkers, acoustic and not bands and a lady singing in a shop window in a ball gown! Found a place to eat then after a walk about had a beer at the Ibis. The staff were very good and welcoming, being quiet they were quite happy to chat. Clean comfy room and wifi was excellent, no drop out at all. Easy check in & check out after a pretty good breakfast. Had to supply my own tea pot and ask for fresh milk but that’s just me!

Thank you so much for you fabulous comments :) We are so thrilled to read that your stay with us and in our city was enjoyable! Glad that you liked our breakfast, the atmosphere and the rooms. We all looking forward to welcoming you back very soon. Kindest Regards F. Chopin

War alles gut

Inhuman relationship with animals and bad service.

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Escape662547 Solo travel - 11/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

From January 2019 it seems that the Director of the IBIS Hotel in Ettlingen decided that dogs , also small ones aren't allowed anymore in the hotel as he had a bad experiences during a dog exibition which have had place in Ettlingen. Unfortunately on the website it isn't indicate so clear so I wasn't aware of this new rule. When I arrived at midnight with my small dog they told me that my dog should sleep in the car in the garage. I told them that the air in the garage wasn't very healthy so I would not put my dog in the car as the health of my little dog is important for me. So I said ok I will go to another hotel in which they don't have this inhuman attitude vs. dogs. They told me that I needed to pay 90% however of the room although I wouldn't sleep there. I paid as they have asked me and I move to a hotel which don't have this kind of attitude vs. dogs. I think that a hotel which is part of ACCOR HOTELS cannot have this kind of attitude vs. dogs but also vs. their customers. As they could have said ok you need to go to another hotel as we don't allow anymore dogs and not asked for the 90% of the cost of the room. Furthermore they shouldn't suggest that a dog should stay in a car in their garage in which they put a warning which says don't stay tolong in this garage is not good for your health. I will suggest to all persons that need to stay in Ettlingen not to go to this hotel and go to the radisson blu Ettlingen or the other hotels in the aerea as at least they have respect for animals and are much better hotels.

inhuman treatment of animals? Because certain animal owners don't have their animals under control and don't want to stand straight for them, we are inhuman with animals !? You confused between causer and damaged - We love animals! On 07.04.2019 at 18:50 h you have made your booking online, via accorhotels.com. On the homepage is not stated that we allowed animals, which is NO MORE the case SINCE 4 YEARS ALREADY. The crew at the reception hat only explained to you, that it's clearly to viewed on the homepage, that just the allowed benefits and services are to seen. It is a pity, that you did not specify directly when you booked or asked that you have a dog with you, otherwise we would have contacted you about this, shortly after the booking process. Since you did not specify in your booking, that you have a dog with you, but mentioned it ONLY AT YOUR ARRIVAL AT ABOUT 0:50 h IN THE NIGHT, we had to charge 90%, because the booking conditions do not allow to cancel a room after 6pm on the day of arrival. There is no possibility to resell the room at this time. For the next time, please contact us directly at the time of booking, if you have an additional request that you can not find online. So we can prevent misunderstandings directly. Many Thanks! F. Chopin - owner & general manager

I stayed here last year whilst driving to Italy. Did the same this year. It's clean, large rooms, friendly staff and in a beautiful town.The breakfast bar is the most varied and delicious that I've ever had from any Ibis Styles.

Wow, thank you so much for leaving us this fantastic review :) We are very happy to read that you really enjoyed our hotel. Happy to see that our staff provided you with a great service and you loved our breakfast. See you soon in Ettlingen - all the best F. Chopin

Lovely stay en route through Germany

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

sdbaustin Family - 14/03/2018 TripAdvisor review

Lovely hotel, ideally located in Ettlingen. Walking distance to the town. Had a meal at the Vogel brewery which is 5 mins walk away.Parking is underground at a charge of 8Euros per night, there appears to be no other parking areas around the area, so opted for this. Rooms are modern with perfect toilets/showers. Breakfast was great with almost every option you could ask for. Would recommend this hotel and may visit again for more than the 1 night stopover from UK to italy.

Lovely feedback :) Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your stay with us! Let us know the next time! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon! All the best from Ettlingen F. Chopin

Disapointing stay

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

tomnedschroef Business - 17/12/2017 TripAdvisor review

The room interior is very minimal. The room was small and bad designed and not up to the usual standard of accors. It was not worth paying 122€ for a night. The heating in the room does not work or is to complicated to switch on. The reception does not have an LECLUBACCORS member desk. So i had to wait a long time to checkout in the morning. Maybe the name ibis budget or f1 would be more correct for this hotel.

I am sorry to hear that your experience with us was not what you expected. We clearly describe the hotel in text and in photos the size of our rooms on the website (19 qm) as well as on all third party websites. The heating works: 3 buttons, one for switch on/off (green light) ,one for the °C and one for the air volume. We understand not all people share the same preferences, nevertheless, we are constantly shaping on a quest to provide fantastic experiences to every guest that come through our doors, so your review was taken into account and we will use as a gift to get better :) Best regards F. Chopin

nice, new Ibis Hotel with suburb beds, friendly staff, good choices for breakfast and parking. Only the rooms close to the street are noisy. All in all a decent choice if you have to stay for a few days in Karlsruhe! Thank you Ibis!

Thank you so much for your kind feedback. You just put a smile on our faces :-) See you soon in Ettlingen - Best wishes F. Chopin

Bad information

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

boo942 Couples - 14/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

We stay at IBIS hotels almost exclusively. They generally have good parking and admits dogs. When I booked this hotel I did not see on the web site that dogs where not welcomed. We arrived late and was immediately told that our little dog could not stay with us. He was allowed to stay in the car in the garage! We will of course never come back here and I will have to double check with the hotels that they allow dogs.

Thanks so much for reaching out about your recent stay. I am sorry to hear that you don't have the right information about our "pet not allowed" policy - but it is nowhere written that we allow pets !? Please call or write us ahead - You've got the right information. Our hotel is animal free in order to maintain sanitary and hygiene standards. I'm sorry for the confusion. All the best F. Chopin

Good hotel

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

nikolay342 Business - 13/06/2017 TripAdvisor review

It's near the center. About 15 minutes from railway station on foot. There are no toothbrush, slippers, comb and even steel water in room. Only soap-gel and towels. It is clean and silent. Supermarke Real is 50 meters from the hotel. Free Wifi works perfectly, 24-hours available reception.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We take care as much as possible on our environment and avoid waste and packaging ;-) You can get toothbrush etc... on request at the reception. Ice water, coffee and tea are free of charges in the lounge (7.00 - 22.00 h). Soap and gel shower are bio products and the wifi, free of charges, based on optical fiber cable (upload & download until 100Mbit/s). See you soon in Ettlingen best regards F. Chopin

nokad10 Business - 19/04/2017 TripAdvisor review

I was so happy to find a stylish, comfy and cool hotel in such a small town. Great staff, service, simple but wonderful room and all at such a fair price. Bravo! Great breakfast and the location is 5 minutes from city center and right in front of an organic supermarket.

Amazing review :-) We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and we would like to thank you for the awesome review and your open words. We hope that we will welcome you again in the future. Best wishes F. Chopin

excellent very new feeling hotel in centre of Ettlingen, perfect for stop over on route to ski/sun etc. Perfect adjoining room for young family, clean and in good condition, kids liked the child themed shower product! Will not hesitate to make this our preferred stop over destination.

Wow, it is a pleasure to read your feedback. It was a pleasure having you as our guest. We hope to welcome you back in Ettlingen. F. Chopin

Great hotel with helpful staff

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Malcolm R Friends getaway - 08/02/2017 TripAdvisor review

Five of us stayed for a night and we were all impressed. The hotel is indeed stylish and includes a nice bar area to relax in the evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our rooms were spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was typical 'German style' with a good selection including meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, scambled eggs, yoghurts and even a tasty fruit compote. Parking is in an underground car-park below the hotel. The old town of Ettlingen is only a few hundred metres away and is well worth strolling around. This hotel is a cut above many other IBIS hotels I've stayed in and very much recommended.

Wow, thank you for awesome review :-) It was a pleasure having you stay at our hotel here in Karlsruhe / Ettlingen. Hope to see you sonn again - Best wishes F. Chopin

Cramped, noisy, inconvenient, unattractive

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

A3546RVscottj Business - 14/11/2016 TripAdvisor review

Noisy, garishly-decorated, cramped rooms on a busy street. Horrible beds, basically a stiff block with a 50cm foam pad on top. No laundry service. Very limited parking. Limited restaurant; fortunately there are plenty of good options a 5-minute walk away. Staff is friendly enough. Won't be back.

Thank you for your review. The hotel is in the city, with a street side and a garden side, with an air-conditioning. - With closed window can you nothing heared (these windows are for example in the german airports built-in) - The sweet beds (15cm memory foam matress and a 7 cm topper) are generally loved (for example to read on tripadvisor). YES you're right, no laundry service (we don't advertise for one at the place ...fortunatly is a laundry a 2 minutes walk away - Parking: in the garage 44 places and around the hotel (max. 100 meters) about 2 x 200 parkings ??? Limited Restaurant: We have NO restaurant, but a bar & lounge - Nowhere is written that we have a restaurant ??? We are not a hotel that is something for all people, instead we created an ibis Styles hotel that is everything to some people. So we agree, if a traditional/classic, grey or brown "colored" room is your priority, and not designer colored hotel with a good mood on every floor with pop, pep and personality, then this is not your place! Staff friendly ... enough... Thank you very much for the compliment :-) Beste regards F. Chopin
