As a solo woman traveler who wanted a centrally located hotel which isn't too hard on the pocket, Cristall fit the bill perfectly. It is just a 5-10 minute walk to the station and was very convenient for my early train departure, even with the heavy luggage. I stayed in a standard single room which was clean. A bit cramped,...

A very modest hotel on the murkier side of the railway station surrounded by busy roads and railway tracks. But what sets this hotel apart from others of its type is its quite shocking attitude to customer service. I had booked and pre-paid for 7 rooms. Unfortunately one of our number was unable to travel at the last moment. I... More

The hotel was around a five minute walk from the Dom and the train station. I advise printing a map of the area before you arrive in the city, otherwise it could be a little hard to find the hotel. But once you get your bearings you realise how central it is to everything. It is a little noisy, due... More

The Hotel is a little hard to find. You have to get out of the train station on the other side of the Dom, turn left and walk along the tracks for 200m. Then go under the tracks through a tunnel and the hotel is on the right. Good Clean Room with a painting that stares at you ;). Rotate... More

We stayed in a comfort room in the newer part of the hotel and it was a really spacious, clean room. The breakfast is really good and the hotel is at walking distance from the Dom so it's a very central location. Next to the train station but we didn't hear any noise of it. The hotel staff could be... More

Very nice hotel, spacious and modern, we had a comfort room, definitely worth the extra money, the room was in the annexe at the back, in its own block, large room, kingsize bed and TV, mini bar, well equipped bathroom with hairdryer. Room cleaned daily, breakfast very good. 5 minutes from the railway station, didn't find it noisy, very central.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Cristall for 4 nights. The room was clean and adequate with TV, mini bar, shower etc. If you are a light sleeper request a room on a quiet side and not the one that overlooks the busy road or the railway. Ours, room number 220, was sufficiently quiet. The location is great.... More

We chose this hotel as it was near the central station - 5 minute walk. Reception staff were efficient. The room was a bit small for two with one large, one small suitcase - no armchairs. A rather dominant "old master" painting turned (literally) by rotation into a mirror. The shower was awkward and potentially hazardous to get out of... More

The hotel has a nice hip design, is close to train station, night live and the Dom. Breakfast was good for Germany standards, I would choose it again as it is good value for money. The free WiFi was appreciated and of good speed.

Good location, close to city centre. A bit noisy outside which did keep me awake. Room was average, on the small side. Breakfast buffet was better than average. Not good, not bad, certainly been to worse places. Would I come here again? Probably not. It just didn't wow me.
