Reunited in the Austrian Alps!
Well today we got to ski in Austria courtesy of Brett, Sarah, Dax and Holly.
There are many ski fields close to Innsbruck and so we could easily catch a bus to one of the ski fields. It was actually a regular city bus so the bus had people with skis and people with their shopping and briefcases. Innsbruck has hosted two …

Switzerland is not that big and one army manoeuvre went 2 miles over their border and 'invaded' Liechtenstein by mistake. Apparently, Switzerland apologised and Liechtenstein said that's ok.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Innsbruck
We were only for one night. Very clean, rooms & bathrooms a bit small but not very expensive and very good location. Typical business hotel.
Great value and service
We stayed at the Ibis in June 2006. It is not located in the best part of town but very handy for Trains and Buses,both stations just a few yards away.The rooms were spotless,simple furnishings but well designed with King size beds. Breakfast is extra(9 euros) with a good choice and value for money. The staff were most pleasant and helpful, recommending restaurants and places of interest. The old town is a 10 minute stroll plenty of interesting shops and Museums, the town in general is very safe both day and night. This is a modern Hotel, just over a year old and excellent value for money.
Very comfartable clean room, perfect location, good breakfast, friendly staff. Free internet use. I would recommend to all and definetly go back again.

There were 2 couples who stayed at the Ibis hotel in Innsbruck for 4 nights and had quite different first impressions - one couple had no problem checking in, and found their room to be clean, functional and comfortable. The other couple were given a room (and key!) to a room that belonged to someone else, then moved to a smoking room (despite having booked a non-smoking room) and were finally, after an hour's wait, given a non-smoking room that had a blocked toilet! However, the Ibis' location (just opposite the train station) made it easy to get to, and it was only a 5-10 minute walk from the old town. The fact that it wasn't in the old town meant that we weren't kept awake all night by the sound of firecrackers going off at all hours (as they tend to do, over the Xmas & New Year). The buffet-style breakfast was one of the highlights, and the free internet access also has to earn the Ibis another gold star. Overall, we'd have to say that this hotel is a bit of a mixed bag - it's a clean, efficient, contemporary hotel which lacks character and that personal touch.
