“budget stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

We just stopped in this hotel for a night on our way to Black Forest. We reached late so there was no reception but there was a machine for check-in based on the confirmation number you received while booking hotel.
Room was a standard ETAP room with toilet and bathroom and a wash basin inside the room. Room was neat and clean. Breakfast was standard continental breakfast and it good enough. Hotel has free WiFi facility. Overall our stay was pleasant.

We arrived at this hotel at 4.40pm after riding our motorcycles from 6.30am, the last couple of hours in torrential rain. We rode around to the tiny car park, and pressed the intercom button to get in- we were informed that we could book in at 5pm and not before, and the woman would not open the door!!!!! We had the pleasure of standing in the torrential rain for a further 20 minutes, before being allowed in!!

For that reason we shall never use an Etap hotel again.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2011

Toilet and shower were in plastic cubicles, sink in bedroom! Beds - one vertical and one horizontally above, accessed by a ladder, both with a thin mattress. Towels shabby. Blinding strip lights down sides of bed, Colour co-ordination left much to be desired - cerise paintwork, green door, blue carpet!!! It was, however, clean and had the benefit of a lift and free Wifi. The area was dire the only nearby restaurant being an American Diner serving burgers! Worst budget hotel ever.

we visited this hotel few times in last two years and the level of service is equaly good. As time goes by we see a need for refurbishment of staircase and the elevator. Some more parking space would be fine.
I.P.

Very basic, but very good!
Small toilet/shower, cheap furniture, but big (for the money) room, clean and tidy- just what you need for a short stay
