The IBIS in the little town of Baar (5min away from Zug by train or 40min to either Zurich or Luzern) ist located directly at the train station. It is clean, but the rooms are really small. For us it was ok as we have stayed for 2 nights and were out of the room every day.

We stayed three nights and used the Ibis for its location and price as opposed to more expensive options in Lucern. Nice staff and easy check in. On par with other Ibis hotels we stayed at while travelling around. (Decor,layout,etc) Bit surprised that guests were allowed to have pets in their room. Compared to other Ibis where we pre paid breakfast, the cost was not good for selection at this hotel. Switzerland as a whole is expensive however the quality and cost of what was offered for breakfast was not justified. I recommend guests do not pre pay breakfast, instead go next door to the bakery or over the road to one of the cafe.

On our way back from our family holiday in Tuscany, we decided to bring a visit to family currently on holiday near Zug. So, after some searching on the web, we settled on the Ibis Hotel in Baar-Zug for its location and its overall price.

The hotel is located next to the train station of Baar and is next to a large supermarket and a bakery, meaning you have plenty of options nearby. The hotel also shares the large parking garage of the supermarket, meaning you'll have plenty of space to park your car. The hotel also has a special tarif for the parking, be sure to ask the reception.

Baar-Zug was also very conveniently located for us, as we visited both Luzern and Zürich Airport in the two days, both max 30 minutes driving from the hotel.

Check-in was done by a very friendly lady, who spoke perfectly Dutch, which was very nice. Later one she told me she was half Dutch, so that explained the language.

We booked a family room, with a third single bed in it and enough room to be able to place a baby bed. Although a little full when we were all in the room, it wasn't a problem for us as we would be only sleeping there. The room was clean and the new Ibis-beds are really very nice and comfortable.

The bathroom was equipped with a toilet and a shower and was functional and clean, so no complaints there.

As usual we didn't used the restaurant of the hotel for breakfast or other meals, as we like to go out and eat "local", so I can't commend on that.

After two nice and hot (38C) days in Switzerland, it was time to pack our things and continue our drive home to The Netherlands.

All in a all a very nice lay-over in Switzerland and I can recommend this hotel for a good value of money!

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting the Zug area. The hotel is opposite the station and appeared to be the only lodging in Baar.

We prepaid the rooms and used some loyalty points as part payment. This seemed to make the check in process extremely slow as the receptionist fiddled with calculators and currency converters. We would have thought that prepayment online would make for a speedy check in and check out, but this didn't seem to be the case; the whole check in process taking around 15 minutes.

The room was large and had 3 beds. The beds were comfortable and enabled a good nights sleep. The room was quite warm due to the summer heat and the locally controlled air conditioning wasn't particularly effective and quite noisy.

Breakfast was average and most of the tables were occupied by locals drinking coffee which left less room for paying hotel guests to sit and have breakfast.

There is free Wifi throughout the hotel and this worked well, despite the constant need to log in if you leave your device idol for a minute or two.

A point to note is that the rooms only have Swiss style sockets which are inset in a kind of hexagon shape (different to the rest of Europe). Not all UK to Europe adaptors will fit so you may have to borrow one from reception as I had to. All the other hotels I stayed at during this holiday offered both types of socket.

We stayed in this hotel for just one night before we left for Zurich. The location is in the center of town and right next to the grocery store and a bakery. This makes it very easy to get food without the high price of room service. As an American, it is a VERY anti English experience. There is only one English TV station which is CNN. This (per the hotel) is because the law prohibits more than one English TV station! There are however tons of Italian, French and German stations - of course all of their shows are American TV shows- just dubbed over. The interior of the hotel room was very nice and the beds were wonderful. It is small. The shower water pressure was nice and lots of hot water. The A/C did not work that well but none of the A/C units we tried in Switzerland worked well. Since they are experiencing 90 degree temps, they will need to fix this soon. The most disturbing experience was that our door did not lock. When we left the room with the key, I happened to notice the door did not make the electronic click. I tried shutting the door several times and then trying to open. It opened every time. They did fix it HOWEVER I had to video tape what was happening because the front desk could not understand what I was telling them. The WIFI worked wonderfully so we had access to English entertainment. BUT be forewarned that Switzerland prohibits you to access internet sites like HBO.com, ABC.com or even BBC channels. You will need to download software that hides your IP location.
