  • 2.0.Poor

    Unpleasant on every level

    I was shocked to be given a TINY, prison-style single room on the street level; the furnishings were literally from the 80s and the bed was hard and uncomfortable. I was really disappointed because the room didn't look at all like the picture I saw on And my booking said "twin" bed so I assumed there would be two beds in the room. When I raised this issue, the senior reception adopted a hostile attitude. She refused to allow me to cancel the reservation so I could find a different (better) hotel. Even after got involved, calling the hotel to plead on my behalf, the management were completely resolute in their refusal to do anything. This isn't a hotel that cares about it guests. All they care about is ripping you off. A deeply unplesant experience. Don't stay here!

    The front desk kindly let me check out an hour later as my husband was feeling unwell and our train left much later. It was much appreciated extra time to rest. Cheers!

  • 4.0.Fair


    The drains in the shower smelled awful. I dreaded having to go in to the bathroom. There was no window or extraction fan. When I moved the curtains it created a cloud of dust too so cleanliness was not great. Also no tea/coffee facilities - I thought the bottled water provided was free but turned out to be 2.5 euros per small bottle. On the plus side it was central, right next to the Hauptbahnhof and the reception/bar area looked cleaner and smarter than the rooms.

    Hotel o.k.

    Sehr freundliches Personal, gutes Essen, alles top. Ledgilich die Matratze habe die ganze Nacht gespürt, jede Feder einzeln. Vielleicht war das nur in meinem Bett so.

    otel med central beliggenhed, fantastisk service

    Hotellet har pæne store værelser med en god seng, rent overalt og gratis WiFi. Selvom der ikke var morgenbuffet, blev maden serveret ved bordet med æg og bacon, juice, brød og pålæg samt marmelader og ost. Hjælpsomheden fra personalet var enorm. Bare spørg og hjælpen var der. Prisen var attraktiv og det gælder også parkering i aflåst gård. Beliggenheden gør at man kan gå til det meste. Hovedbanegården ligger 3 minutter fra hotellet. Der er masser af gode spisesteder i kvarteret.

    This hotel does not have any responsability due to the COVID-19 crisis, flexi bus cancelled with a refund my trip, so i could not go on with my trip, i asked to get to them to get a refund, and they say no. They do not care about the security of his hostes, they only care about the money, do not have empathy for this WORLD CRISIS, be careful they rather have patients to spread the virus in its city. Cant believe germans are like this. Dieses Hotel ist aufgrund der COVID-19-Krise nicht verantwortlich. Der Flexi-Bus wurde mit einer Rückerstattung meiner Reise storniert. Daher konnte ich meine Reise nicht fortsetzen. Ich bat, sie zu kontaktieren, um eine Rückerstattung zu erhalten, und sie Nein sagen. Sie kümmern sich nicht um die Sicherheit seiner Gastgeber, sie kümmern sich nur um das Geld, haben kein Einfühlungsvermögen für diese WELTKRISE, seien Sie vorsichtig, sie haben lieber Patienten, die das Virus in seiner Stadt verbreiten. Ich kann nicht glauben, dass Deutsche so sind.

    Service und Frühstück top Zimmer eher flop

    In Anbetracht des Übernachtungspreises war ich von der Enge des nicht auf dem neuesten Stand befindlichen Einzelzimmers doch überrascht. Während der Teppichboden ungepflegt wirkte, war das Bad in bestem Zustand, freundlich und sauber. Überragend fand ich das Frühstück, dessen Vielfalt und Qualität kaum Wünsche offen ließ. Schlafen konnte man dank unverbrauchter Matraze und ruhiger Lage des Zimmers gut. Sehr erfreulich war, dass ich trotz frühzeitiger Anreise gleich einchecken konnte.
