If you suffer with allergies and are allergic to feathers I would not recommend this place. Even though non feather pillows and duvets were requested at time of booking we were informed by reception they didnt have any so when I told them that was a big issue as feathers set my asthma off it was suggested I go and...

This hotel is very central located right next to Appelhofplatz. I stayed there for 2 nights. The first night there was no heating at all although this fixed the next day. Breakfast was buffet style and rather basic. I asked for an iron and was told they had one but didn't know where it was? I don't think I would... More

What can I say? I think pictures speak louder than words. I have stayed in better accommodation in Albania!! I will start on positive notes... great location, the bed was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was average. The staff appeared friendly enough. HOWEVER, the room itself left a lot to be desired. Please see photos of room 30 where... More

We had unfortunately made a last minute booking and ended up with city inn hotel. I am not usually writing bad reviews, however in this case, I feel compelled to warn other travellers. First of all, reception closes at 10pm, if you do have a late check in, best to advise them beforehand otherwise you will not be able to... More

The location is one subway stop away from the main station, so it is quite good. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant. Hotel CityInn consists of several attached buildings and several entrances. The building where I stayed was attached to the main building, and accessible from it. Another building is approached by a separate entrance. The quality of your stay... More

The hotel is in a great location - next to the WDR-building and is very central for the old and new parts of the city. It is made up of different apartment blocks next to each other so the entrance to your block could be round the corner from the reception. Not a real problem - just odd. The room... More
