First and foremost there is no internet coverage in the rooms or in the hallways! This wasn’t just for my room, my friends room, in the entire hallway, but can be illustrated by the fact that 15 hotel guests were huddled together in the 1 square meter in front of reception where there was internet reception. Ibis suggest that they have a 15minute window to fix things, they didn’t. When I asked to be moved to a room with Wifi, they knew this would not be a solution as no rooms have wifi available as STATED on their website.
So you can’t get internet reception on your own devices, but there is two computers available near reception to use. Few issues here is that Ibis actually promises free wifi in the rooms, no Skype on these computers, many sites seemed to be blocked – and I am not talking about adult content, searching on how to get to the Alps was a painful. Keyboard is weird, which meant everything took much much longer and often the computers were being used.
Staying on the negatives, the staff were rather useless, except for Claudio who was at least reasonable and even lent us travel adapters. Switzerland adapters are not the same as the rest of Europe. The worse was Ms Hernandez who no matter what the question was, “check the internet” this is way below Accor standards and I swear it must have been the only English she knew. Often it was simple things like a nearby restaurant (outside the awful one in the hotel) or best way to get to the Alps. Something I feel I would not be the first to ask in Zurich or the Ibis hotel.
I have eluded too the restaurant and how awful it is. We arrived at 8pm and since the Hotel is in the middle of nowhere, used by truck drivers as good breakfast stop for example. We decided to have diner in the hotel restaurant. Rubbish! I appreciate that Switzerland is more expensive to eat than Sydney, NY, London and even the rest of Europe, but swy you halved the price, it still doesn’t make the food nice or worthwhile. I would say eat anywhere else!
Obviously if you are searching this hotel on Trip Advisor, the cost of Hotels in Zurich or Switzerland (Stayed in Lucerne as well), but don’t be fooled, though this Ibis Hotel may be cheaper than those located in the centre, you lose it all in travel costs to the city centre as well as time. You need to catch a bus (two choices 185,184 which come every 15 minutes) and then a tram from Wollishofen, which happens to be at the end of line 7. Fine if the connect up, not so great when they don’t line up and you have spent 50mins getting to the city.
Finishing with a few positives is that the showers were great! And Claudio lent us travel adapters without much fuss. Yep that’s it, on a cost to middle of no-where ratio I would never stay here again. I am factoring Switzerland’s higher costs and still won’t recommend or stay here. I knew what I was getting myself into with Accor and Ibis, but this was extremely disappointing.
