I am aware that Meininger hotel is at the same time a hostel, but I had stayed previously in their hotel in Frankfurt and it was wonderful. The individual bedroom was really just like a simple hotel. This time, it was totally different. Although I was staying by myself, there were four beds at my bedroom, which took a lot... More

Our experience in this Hotel was really good. It was 14 people and we had nice spacy rooms for a really good price. Our only concern where that we didn't know we had to pay a deposit. The reception was very helpful except for directions and prices.

This hotel is more a hostel than a hotel. We were a family of 4 (2 children) and they provided a room with single beds only, despite my request trhough the booking website with more than a month in advance. The acoustic isolation is bad so you can hear other people in their rooms. Apart from these 2 points the... More

Comfortable and clean hostel with helpful staff in a nice area of the city not far from plenty of bars, shops and restaurants. The hostel was initially a little tricky to find is a little oit of the way but it's easy to get to the centre on public transport. The room was clean and well appointed with good facilities....

Really skilled in languages, people from reception and staff were really helpful and patient. We had a good laugh playing guitar whilst having a beer in the bar. The room was fine, comfortable beds but small (for a 2m guy). Anyway was clean, warm and cosy for the price we paid for 2 nights. We will definitely come back as... More

There was free WiFi, a room with a comfortable bed, and it wasn't to noisy. What more could you want on a budget? It wasn't the cleanest place I've ever been but for what I was paying I wasn't expecting the Four Seasons.

The meininger are usually good. I have stayed three different times (berlin, köln and amsterdam). This was the worst one. You can notice that it belongs to a big chain of hotels because of the infrastructure, but it has been badly neglegted. Not very clean, staff that doesn't exactly know what they are doing and with litle motivation to make... More

I stayed at this hotel from 18th-22nd December as group leader with a school group. We chose Meininger because we stayed at their hotel in Berlin last year, which was fantastic. On arrival, I was a little disappointed with the accommodation. Our whole group was on the 1st floor, which was in need of renovation as it was very tired... More

Booked this hotel for 14 of us. We had 3 and 4 person rooms as well as a single for a late add on. For the price we paid I can not fault it. Clean and basic. There is small bar where you can grab a Kolsch from the fridge and pay at reception. Staff were friendly and helpful and... More
