The location is hard to beat and the personnel is very helpful and friendly. The room was a good size but it is getting a bit worn and could do with a refresh in the not too distant future. Parking is available nearby. Decent value for money if nothing exceptional.

We stayed a family of 5 in this nice hotel. The staf was very friendly and helpsome. They gave good hints for nice restaurants and spoke english very well, which was a great help for us. Nice and clean rooms and good breakfast. The only minus was that we were there at a very hot periode and at the room... More

It's certainly central - very well-placed for all the attractions in the old center of town. My room was very spacious, almost a suite. A bed, part-separated from the rest of the room by a screen, and a sofa and chairs around a coffee table as well as a desk to work at. Whether they are all like that, I... More

We stayed six nights at this hotel just before Easter and were perfectly content. If this is any recommendation for you, if we return to Göttingen in the near future, which is likely, we intend to stay here again. We had a room on the top floor, at the back: this was a bit of a pain because there is... More

Indeed, lives up to its name: "Central" as it has the best location. It also offers a good breakfast and a parking (in the neighbourhood) at a reasonable price. However the room, though comfortable, could be cleaner as well as the attention, a little more friendly. Another drawback is the fact the hotel don´t have elevators (but few up stairs... More

I came here for work purposes (walking distance to the university). I know the university puts people up here on a regular basis, but my impressions are mixed. On the good side of things, the breakfast is nice (although they're not always ready with everything at 6:30, when bf is supposed to begin), they have wireless internet without extra charge,... More

Great location in the historical section of the center. Very helpful receptionist, nicely decorated lobby. Rooms modern, but single beds too narrow and uncomfortable (book double!). Doors (80s plastic style handles) and walls very thin, so noise in the morning from the hallway. However, no noise from outside the hotel if your room goes to the back. Very good bathroom,... More

We enjoyed a most pleasant overnight stay at the Central - a recently refurbished hotel in the heart of old Goettingen, which is a lovely historic university town. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff. Our room was simply but well furnished in a fairly minimalist style with a well equipped en-suite shower room. Everything worked.... More

Booked a double room for one night. Very spacious, modern room with gorgeous bathroom. Comfortable, large bed. The hotel staff were very helpful, even letting me occupy my room before 8am due to my early arrival by Eurostar from the UK. The hotel, as its name suggests, is centrally located within the old town and I would highly recommend it... More

My wife and I stayed at the Cental Hotel last month and we were totally disappointed. We were visiting from Iowa, and came to Gottingen for my cousins's wedding. The linen smelt musty, and it took a great deal of complaining to have it changed. The rooms wreaked of smoke, and there was stagnant air circulation. The service was generally... More

Management response:

I am realy sorry to read the above things.. I looked it up and have seen, that the visit of this guest was during the CeBIT, so it may be that we had no other rooms available. Normaly if someone asked with his reservation to get a non-smoking-room we make everything possible to give one - or tell the guests... More
