What a great hotel and a little gem for business or pleasure. It's beautifully designed throughout with a good bar and restaurant. I was on the 9th floor and the room was super modern with a great shower, fully stocked mini-bar and very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very German (well it would be!) and had a great selection of cheese,... More

This place looks impressive….clean lines, shiny surfaces, interesting lighting and enough ‘design features’ to fill a museum. But that’s just the problem, it all looks great, but it may as well be a museum, because not much of it actually ‘works’. Don’t get me wrong, it’s by no means an unpleasant place to stay. The beds are comfy, with lovely... More

The wellness section (pool and sauna) is definitely worth a visit. It wasn't crowded when I was there, and it is open until 11 pm. Might be the best part of the hotel. Size of the rooms is very comfy. The shower and the bath tub was also nice. Friendly reception staff, thank you. Location is perfect! However, Breakfast in... More

Very nice and modern hotel. We stayed in the suite which was spacious and nicely decorated. Big and comfortable bed, beautiful design bathroom with everything in it you could need and lots of space. Gym was ok, but TV did not work and the gym is a bit small with limited equipment.

Trendy place, nice decorated and cool rooms with glass walls surroundingrhe toilet:) Location is great - just 5 min Walk from the Lake. Good restaurants in the area. The hotel is a small but cosy bar.

The design of the hotel is very nice although not always the most practical e.g. the light of the bathroom was not easy to find for everybody and the hairdryer was not very easy to handle. The room itself is very nice and very welcoming for couples. If you're not a couple, it could be less practical because there is... More
