Stayed here for 4 weeks on my business visit. The rooms are smalls and not having a view from the window that is noteworthy. Well atleast the rooms facing the street side. But this is more than made up by the location of the hotel. Its 5 min walk from Paradeplatz a place bustling with activity and from where you... More

I was booked at this hotel as part of a group so I had little choice. Here are the pros, the restaurant is pretty acceptable, and they let me check in early. The disadvantages far outweigh the advantages: 1. although I had to argue to a non-smoking room and got one the room smelled like an ashtray anyways. It appears... More

I stayed there for almost a week, for work reasons. The only good think in the hotel was the food, both breakfasts and diners where on decent level. The room was tiny, so was the bathroom (while sitting on the toilet you were able to wash your feet under the shover). My room was located next to noisy street. There... More

Location is ok but very small room, bathroom is also too small so that I always touch the curtain when I am having a shower. WIFI is free but the speed is also slow. The price is acceptable but the C/P value is low.

This hotel was recommended by our German colleagues. Not sure why though. Anyway hotel is at the other end of town away from train station etc by a busy intersection. Upon arriving at the hotel the outside area and immediate area is not particularly welcoming. There is a small checkin desk and feels more like a small motel. My room... More

Staying at the Balladins Superior is like falling back into the '70s, unfortunately. My room was made of old and dated furniture, which was probably already unattractive in the '70s. If it wasn't for a small flat-screen tv, you wouldn't remember it's 2013 :( On the flipside, staff is nice and breakfast is fairly rich.

I left for a day on Good Friday and came back at night. I have moved from India with a lot of luggages and valuables. When I came back, I found that I have been robbed of all important valuables-cash, original documents, valuables worth more than 3000 EUR. When I asked hotel staff, they told me why I have not...
