Everything in the hotel was really good, except for WiFi. This was my second visit, and both times I had terrible WiFi. I was not even able to complete a single WiFi call. Was not able to connect at all on a MacBook. After I complained, they didn't charge us for it, so it was ok for us. But if you depend on WiFi, you have a problem. Otherwise nice hotel, walking distance to airport, great food for regular hotel prices.
We stayed for one night, as a stopover after visiting the southern Black Forest. Our double room was clean and spacious, the friendly staff spoke both German and English, there was free wi-fi in the lobby and the staff stored our luggage for us, as we needed to check out before our flight was due. There was also free shuttle service to the airport between 4 30am and 8 30am, for those that required it.
Ibis is within walking distance from Stutgart aiport and is situated in a quiet town called Echterdingen. Echterdingen has a few restaurants, a lovely icecream shop, a large bakery, a pub and a train station (in very close proximity to Ibis). It is only one train journey away from Stutgart city centre and the journey takes about 30 minutes.
In all we had a very good experience!

We spent 4 nights at this Inn and loved our stay. Close to airport, wonderful friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast had a variety of offerings, great service in a pleasant atmosphere. Several restaurants within walking distance.
Fritizi's is understandably stumbled upon by most people unable to get into one of the hotels by the airport they find themselves at Fritzi's. I am sure that one stay will be enough to convince anyone to come back time and time again. Forget soulless expensive chain hotels. This is a fantastic experience, owned and run by Leyla (who runs front of house) and Fritz (who cooks a mean steak) you feel more like a house guest than a tourist. There is a friendly bar - with charming locals (Edmund and Jurgen were engaging and charming) great food and plenty of beer and schnapps. Leyla is an amazing host - she remembers everyone who has stayed and can't do enough for guests. One morning another guest and I needed to get to the Messe for a conference and no taxis were available - we were preparing to find alternative transport when Leyla offered to give us a lift. Great fun, great people, personal care and attention. There may not be a 100 rooms, or every conscience you expect from some of the chains but a five minute cab from Stuttgart airport will take you to one of the best boutique hotels I have ever stayed at. Thank you Leyla, Fritz, Leyla (barmaid), and of course Edmund, Jurgen and everyone else.
