I stayed one night. The name “City” is fairly accurate: it is close to the centre, app. 15 mins. walk from the main station. It is in a pleasant area: the view from my window (photo) was trees and old buildings.
My room (310) was comfortable and adequately large, but there was no space for luggage storage (photo). The room was fairly quiet but faced onto a busy street.
The shower room (photo) was small but adequate: there was good supply of hot water. The hair dryer was visible immediately.
There was a big desk for computers, with a power point in a convenient location, at the corner of the desk. The room lighting was adequate: the lamp over the desk was helpful.
The wardrobe (photo) was big enough for the contents of my small suitcase.
Internet access was free but a bit complicated: the free WiFi needed Cloud and Ibis. The whole log-in process had to be started again every time I returned to the room after turning of my laptop. There was no room key for a power control socket, so that a computer left in sleep mode was not shut down.
There was no clock in room, but there was a TV –I had no time to check the programmes.
The breakfast buffet was very good, scrambled eggs, bacon, French cheese, fruit; there was no room no. check.
There was a table waste containers (Tischabfall - photo) next to the drinks area, but none on the tables, these are common in Germany: they would be helpful. The idea of adding spices to one’s breakfast was imaginative, but the text “Pimp Your Morning” (photo) appears not to have been checked with native speakers.
I saw no free newspapers.
The staff were helpful
A welcome drink was promised in the confirmation email but not offered at reception. My welcome email indicated that I could extend the check-out time for no charge; when I tried to extend until 14:00, I was initially told there would be a charge; after I showed my ACCOR card, this was waived.

Dear Guest,

thank you for your visit and so great detailed review of your stay.

It's nice to hear you enjoyed it here.
We have included the comments and can only forward them.
Ibis hotels are standardized in economy area and we are dependent on the standard. So that we have little room to customize the room individually.

We would be very happy if we could welcome you as our guest again!

Best regards from Paderborn

A good hotel in a great location, in walking distance to Paderborn town. Friendly staff who solved any issues promptly. The breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. The rooms are small and basic, in need of updating but very clean.
No dinner available at this hotel, only bar snacks but lots of restaurants in the vicinity.

Typical Ibis hotel, but very clean and with good size rooms. Haven't tried the breakfast because it was too expensive (14€). With the same amount of money you can have a first class frühstück in the city centre.

Considering the rating of this hotel, having booked was unsure of what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly. We could park our car, our room was clean, bed was fine for a short stay and the buffet breakfast was good. If need a bed for a couple of nights, would consider this again.
