Did you know that the ibis hotel chains accept dogs in many Europen cities? This includes ibis, ibis Budget, ibis Styles, some Sofitel and Novotel hotels. Careful though: no pee pads, dog beds or dog treats are offered by the hotels. Dogs up to 15 kg are allowed: one per room for a fee paid at check-in.
You Must Bring With You:
- Pee pads and bags to collect pet waste.
- Your dog’s vaccination card (up-do-date) of course. On paper, the staff is supposed to ask you for it. It hasn’t happened to us yet though.
- Your animal’s favorite toy or its bed to make them comfortable in the hotel room.
Pet-Friendly Ibis Hotels in Spain
We visited Spain with our dog and had quite a hard time Googling hotels that were pet-friendly. A friend of ours saved us by telling us about the ibis hotel chain being dog-friendly. We wish we had known that when visiting Barcelona! No matter, we endedup booking another ibis hotel at Viladecans on the way back.
Hotels in Madrid Where You Can Vacation With Your Dog
Ibis hotels are all around town. Here are some of the best rated Madrid dog-friendly hotels from the chain:
Here are some of the Barcelon hotels from this hotel chain:
- Ibis Barcelona Ripollet
- Ibis Budget Aeropuerto Barcelona Viladecans. We actually did go to that one and wrote a review of it. Read an honest review of the Barcelona Airport Ibis hotel.
If you want to visit Bilbao, we found a really promising hotel as well. If you went, please, give us feedback so that we can include it in this article.
Dog-Friendly Hotels in France
Full disclosure: we are originally from France and there are many ibis hotels in France. We haven’t listed all of them out of some misplaced sense of “nobody really wants this much detail”. If you want more towns in France, let us know and we will research these hotels!
First and foremost, did you know that in technicality, pictures of the Eiffel tower without a licence is considered illegal in France? I just really really liked the two pigeons! Paris is very tricky. It comes down to specific neighborhoods so we included a few options but know that there are more out there. There is an apartment hotel in La vilette, a 25Hours hotel near Gare du Nord, a Sofitel in the La Défense business district and an ibis near the Montparnasse neighborhood.
We’ve never been to Toulouse but we have a sausage dog…it seemed somehow fun to include hotel choices for a town renowned for its sausages. We have a Toulouse walking around in our neighborhood. This dog is named after the sausages in Toulouse!
Biarritz has two options for the airport: ibis budget or the regular ibis airport hotel.

💓25Hours Hotel in Vienna
Seriously, we absolutely love this pet-friendly hotel in the historical center of Vienna. It is fun, the staff is very attentive and the spa makes this day even better!
Confession: we have a few friends who live in Switzerland so we tend to go there rather often.
We absolutely love the 25House hotels in Vienna and Zurich. We cannot recommend them enough. I know this has nothing to do with it but the 25Hours hotel in Zurich is incredibly close to one of the Google campuses in the city. It made meeting up with friends much easier at lunch time. Plust it was close to one of my favorite café in the town.
If you want a budget option near Zurich Airport, ibis Budget has you covered. Oftentimes, if you have an early flight, it makes sense to book a hotel near the airport. It’s often cheaper and helps you plan your return trip without the stress of finding a way to get to the airport from wherever you are downtown.
Important information : 25Hours hotels provide dog beds, a food bowl and treats for your dog.
The ibis Genève Centre Lac is an option in town. We haven’t been but I thought we could include it in this list to be useful
Do not make the mistake we did! You don’t need to go with an Air BnB if you want to visit Rome or Milan with doggo. As much as we loved Milan in an apartment, our Rome situation was an absolute nightmare. Do yourself a favor and go with hotels when it comes to your Italian vacation. Here are some hotels that you could enjoy:
