    My window was directly adjacent to the parking lot, making me feel bad about privacy. Especially in combination with there being no lock on the bathroom door and no slide or obvious sign to know the main room door is locked.

    Great air conditioning, a godsend in this weather. Shower was a bit larger than I expected and had good pressure. Large, perhaps slightly too large portions at the restaurant.

    Actually nothing against Ibis Hotel. I just want to report that the personnel in the Ibis Budget Hotel that is in front of Ibis Hotel, didn’t do any effort to tell us that we had to cross the road and try 20mt ahead. They just put on a stern face and told us that they had no reservations in our name in that hotel. Punkt. I suspect that they could do more to help understand the error.

    They nickel and dime you. Room description said double room but when I got there they charged me for a second person - another 10 euros. They also charged 3 euros for parking. Seems ridiculous as the hotel is located in the middle of nowhere - just include it in the room rate.

    The property was advertised on booking.com with a banner across the main picture 'breakfast included'. When I arrived, it became obvious that breakfast would be charged at an extra £10...which I declined. Food service stops at 8pm in the hotel... The hotel is located in a mainly office/industrial area, so don't expect any opportunity for evening entertainment (unless you fancy a KFC drive through)...saying this the hotel is functional and designed with the business and airport users in mind.

    The close proximity to a small train station one stop away from the airport

    Staff was most unfriendly, bordering on rude. Upon arrival we were told by the lady checking us in that our child "made noise for three" though she hardly said a word. Then we were told "we did not tell them about the child" even though we booked for 3 and even requested a cot via Booking.com. Needless to state the cot was not placed in the room. After breakfast German guests were asked if it was okay for them to close the buffet, we were not. Staff sat around talking very loudly about issues "unrelated to work", to put it mildly.

    Value, room in good state of repair and clean.
