4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Amazing views onto the platforms of the Central Station from the corridors (rooms face the other way). It can be quite noisy, but it's cheap, a fantastic location, and friendly. Avoid the expensive breakfast and wifi in room. Wifi is free downstairs.

The hotel offers reasonable quality for reasonable cost at a very convenient location - for that I can recommend it. Only (potential) drawback - rooms on the 'railway line' side are - at least for me - lacking a bit in privacy... Nevertheless, I do recommend the hotel, and I shall keep coming back.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The Ibis hotel is conveniently placed near the railway station and the local tube station.The neighbourhood can be bit noisy but the rooms are spacious and there is good double glazing. The heating system is tad noisy but I didn't need much of it.Can be problematic if it is cold
Rooms are clean and good value for money.The breakfast is decent .Staff is helpful too.
Shame the free wifi is only available in the lounge and not in the rooms,I guess they have to charge somewhere.
Overall good value

This hotel was perfect for my needs, nothing fancy...just a place to crash until I could check into my student residence for my study abroad trip. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They have free wi-fi in the lobby area, and I was not bothered while I was making use of it. They do offer a breakfast buffet at an additional charge (I did not take advantage of it). Right next to the main train station and there is also a McDonald's right next door.

Well situated for travelling around the nord rhiene area and typical IBIS standard but situated right on the bus station and lots of early hours noise from bars. Best to request a room facing the station even with thr odd train yhis is better.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

This Hotel is one of two Ibis Hotels at the Main Train Station close to the city center with shops and restaurants. Stayed there for two nights and the Hotel was more or less as expected, with very basic rooms, small bathrooms and ok cleanliness. Breakfast was ok and the staff was helpful. Noise insulation was not good, so there was quite some noise at night both from people outside the train station as well as other guests comming back to their rooms late at night.

Overall this Hotel is ok for sleeping there a couple of nights.
