InterGlobe Hotels announced the opening of ibis Coimbatore City Centre, marking the debut of the smart hotel brand in the second largest city in the state of Tamil Nadu – Coimbatore. The business hotel is strategically located in the city’s central business district at Lakshmi Mills Junction, within close proximity to local tourist attractions and shopping hubs, and a short drive from the city’s railway station and airport. With 129 well-appointed rooms, the hotel boasts of a contemporary design that offers unparalleled comfort and convenience, living up to the ibis promise of providing ‘well-being at the best price’.
A modern retreat for business travellers, ibis Coimbatore City Centre offers guests a unique blend of modernity, comfort and availability synonymous with ibis hotels globally, and yet it succeeds in imbibing some of the local culture and heritage that Coimbatore is known for. Walking into the hotel, guests are welcomed by a warm and vibrant lobby featuring a colourful display of local craftsmanship. Paying homage to the city’s long term association with the textile industry, the walkways and corridors of the hotel feature wall art inspired by the weaves and thread work that have earned the city the title of ‘Manchester of South India’. The guest rooms are contemporary, comfortable and well-designed, replete with all modern in-room amenities including an LED TV and high speed Wi-Fi Internet access to ensure that guests can relax and work with ease. The hotel also guarantees its guests a good night’s sleep with the signature Sweet Bed, an innovative bedding concept from ibis that ensures a quality sleep experience.
Speaking at the hotel’s launch, Shwetank Singh, Vice President – Development and Asset Management, InterGlobe Hotels Pvt Ltd, said, “We are extremely delighted to mark our entrance into Coimbatore.

Known for its booming textile industry, start-ups and IT hub, the city is popular amongst tourists, business travelers and localites alike. With ever-evolving consumer patterns in the country, guests are now far more discerning and well-travelled. Keeping these new demographic patterns in mind, ibis Coimbatore is positioned at offering great value with International standards at a mid-market price-point.”
