Mozabit 13/09/2020 TripAdvisor review

Comfortable,clean hotel at a very good location in Ettlingen. Just in front of a supermarket and short walking distance to the center of Ettlingen and its restaurants and shops. Good procedures to follow against the spread of coronavirus. Very friendly receptionist staff. Spacious clean rooms with comfortable beds.

Thank you so much :) Your review will go a long way to continue to motivate the team to deliver a great service. Thank you so much especially during these difficult times, the team have worked their socks off and it is always a pleasure to read when efforts are recognised. We look forward to welcoming you back soon again - Best wishes F. Chopin

andrevanb 02/08/2020 TripAdvisor review

We spend one night in the Ibis Styles Karlsruhe Ettlingen. It waqs a very nice stay. The hotel was clean and Corona proved. Also the breakfast. The hotel is near to the center of the town. We enjoyed our stay.

What can I say but thank you so much for a fabulous review! I was happy to read that you enjoyed your stay :) The team and I cannot wait to welcome you back! Best wishes from Ettlingen F. Chopin

normally our favourite place in Ettlingen but this time was a bit different

neutroroberts1 07/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

we stay here often, at least 3-4 times in a year, and we love the hotel - the location, the furnishings,cleanliness, the service. I was a bit perplexed this time because a couple of little glitches happened. We did arrive late I have to say, the staff opened the garage door, but then after parking the car we rang the bell to be let in we waited...and waited...and waited.... .... and waited....we rang the bell at intervals and I called the reception desk at least 4-5 times and no one picked up. As I had a crutch and reduced mobility I sent my daughter through the door to the playground and around the building to go to the front reception door... then we were finally let in. The two staff members didn't in any way apologise for this and it took them ages to prepare the key cards, even though I am an Accor member (and normally the keys are always waiting for us at arrival). Secondly the staff members kept talking to me in German even though I am a foreign tourist and I kept talking to them in English. At check out we were given a key card to exit the garage.... which was not activated. I know, I minor detail, but given that everything always runs smoothly in this hotel and we are regulars, all of this was a bit of a surprise.

Thank you for taking the time to share you feedback with us. It is always a pleasure to welcome you to our hotel. However I am sincerely sorry for the sad state of affairs you experienced on your last stay. I can honestly say that the entire team was mortified to read of your experience. We have a new Night Auditor and he has not yet mastered the processes and the hotel software - he is still in the learning phase - We apologize. I hope I can ensure your continued loyalty and looking forward to welcome you back soon again. Best wishes F. Chopin

Located conveniently close to the highway and walking distance from city center has efficient and friendly staff. Breakfast is included with great selection of food, good quality and everything is replenished timely. Will be back.

It is always a pleasure to receive a 5 star rating, even more so when accompanied by such a sweet and short review. Thank you so much, the team and I look forward to welcoming you back soon again :) Kindest regards F. Chopin

J2644IQemanueleg Family - 11/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

If you are moving through Germany to the south or to the north and you have a long journey, Ettlingen may be a good option for a stay. In particular this Ibis is offering a good price-quality option. There a some odds things in the hotel, which prevent me to give the maximum, but it is just to be picky: - Parking space underneath the hotel has a very low ceiling; incredibly enough we could not park our car because we had a coffin on top of it and it could not fit (take this into consideration if you want to stay here and you are transferring your home, like we do every time!). Said that there is a free parking place available at 350 m distance, which is a bargain (security wise is not ideal, thou) - The lifts' doors are closing too fast, as such it was extremely cumbersome to upload and offload all our luggage without being smashed by those every single seconds - The airlock at the entrance seems to be a hair-dryer considering how powerful and hot is the air flow Said that, the rooms where spacious and clean and the personnel considerate and kind Last note for the hotel management, you would want to repair the football table in the kids room (which is very nice)

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your detailed feedback: -Parking: 2 meters, standard in Germany ;) -Lift: I have asked the housetechnician to check the lift doors - Thank you for the feedback and sorry for the inconvenience! -Entrance airlock: The "curtain" of hot air retains the cold air outside and for that it must be quite powerful (in the winter) - Not very pleasant, as in many large stores or hotels but very efficient and energy saving ;) -Football table - I checked it - worked !? What didn't work for you? it is a professional one and practically indestructible;) We appreciate your feedback and that hopefully would help us to achieve a 5 star rating on your next stay. Wishing you a fantastic 2020 ahead. Kindest regards F. Chopin

derekm261 Solo travel - 07/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The reception is friendly and helpful, the rooms are a good size with two chairs, much better for couples and great for a single traveller. The garage is easy to get in and out of and is a reasonable size. The bar is adequate with reasonable stock served from reception. Breakfast is ample and of reasonable quaity for the type of hotel with many options. For other meals and snacks it is wthin walking distance of the town, although in the period after New Year there are several closures and for the seoond time one of the Italian restaurants refused me a single table, they might have been full but there were emty tables on both occasions and the same front of house person was brusque. For me it is an excellent stop between Calais and the ski resrts of the Salzburg area.

Thanks a millions for such an amazing feedback. We are so happy to know that you enjoyed staying with us! Glad that you like our Hotel - Really looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future! Best wishes, F. Chopin

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 5.0/5

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 1.0/5

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

Lovely stay en route through Germany

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

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 2.0/5

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
