The ibis Winterthur City Hotel is entirely non-smoking and is located in the business district near the museums and just a 5-minute drive from Winterthur train station. The hotel has 88 air-conditioned rooms, 2 of which are suitable for people with reduced mobility. It boasts a breakfast restaurant, terrace, bar with 24-hour snack service and chargeable parking. The hotel also has a conference room and free WIFI access.
I was on business. The room was big enough to work there in the evening. Staff kind and helpful.
Ibis: You know what to expect. It's exactly the same ibis we have everywhere in the world. An hotel designed for travelers that need a good and affordable place to stay and don't care about other luxuries like pool, gym, convention centers and on. Good bed, good shower. The price was 135 chf including taxes and parking for one day. Not so bad for Zurich.
Didn't have breakfast but we dined at the hotel restaurant and it was mediocre (and expensive). The internet at the lobby is good, fast and free, but if you want it in the room it's atrocious expensive, 30 chf for 24 hours.
the hotel itself is good, clean, convenient but the reception (short one) is not really friendly; like she is angry with someone. It's very convenient to go to Zurich fulghafen, Zurich HB. Even you stay in this hotel, you can travel to Luzern, Zurich, shaffhousen, it will not take time and the train is frequent. There are Mcdonal, Migrosline and a mall opposite to the hotel, just cross the road. You will take bus line 1 (Destination Toss) and get off at Loki station. It's easy, and convenient. I recommend for anyone who plan to travel to Rhein fall, shaffhousen, or Zurich, this hotel suits in budget and location.
reception staff (not everyone), should be more friendly.
loved the shower design and size. bed was very comfortable
tv channels... poor locals. wifi did not work with mac laptop. did not like paying city tax as add on.
I liked the location, because we have family in that part of town. I also enjoyed the breakfast.
Very clean, pleasant staff who all spoke english. Great value.
Location near airport.
Free parking on site is just 12 places that were occupied. Half the hotel is in construction as of our trip Sep 2009 which took up rest of parking lot. The Ibis hotel staff unloading mattresses in the construction area were very rude and unhelpful about parking when we arrived with a reservation. We were asked to park the car on the dark unlit side of the building in a hidden corner for the night. We moved car later to a more visible spot when the outside staff were gone. The bed had only two small pillows which was a little unexpected.
Clean and comfortable and what I expected for my money, although breakfast was not included.
I did not notice when I was booking the hotel on the internet that breakfast was not included. There was unnecessary loud noise in the hallway at seven in the morning, disturbing my rest that I needed because I had come to participate in a sporting event, and I had travelled over three hours the night before to reach the hotel.
Location of hotel to city centre. Very good value for money and excellent breakfast.
