Stayed with my mum and sister for the weekend. For this price range you really can't get any better. Hotel was immaculate. Breakfast excellent (hot and cold food, good coffee, nice staff). Small area to have drinks in the late evening if you'd like to. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, we were constantly offered Christmas biscuits/hot wine and... More

This hotel is 5 mins walk from the main station. It is worth going to the opposite side than the more popular Cathedral area. Rooms were modern and typical size for Germany. Bed was comfortable with choice of Pillows. Wifi was brilliant all day and night. Breakfast selection was fantastic even better than the large hotel chains. With a reasonable... More

The Hotel Ludwig with its 50 rooms is located in easy reach from the main train station, accessible on foot through the Breslauer Platz exit. Rooms are a bit narrow; also the bathroom is small size. The furniture is modern and new, the double bed is equipped with two comfortable mattresses, unfortunately it may from a gap. The room and... More

Let us start with the good news: The location of this hotel is excellent, the staff is consistently exceedingly friendly, as I can judge from three past visits. The rooms are clean, wifi is free. So far, all is well. Admittedly, from an aesthetical perspective, the interior of the hotel is rather hard to take - one has to be... More

Our ACTIU furniture provider suggested this hotel during the ORGATEC Exhibition and we found it very convenient to public transportation and reasonable with breakfast included ! The staff could not have been more helpful and always went out of their way to make our week long stay pleasant. We look forward to our next ORGATEC in 2016.

This hotel is a brief walk to train station and Dom. It is a lovely, reasonably priced hotel that serves a wonderful breakfast. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. The room was quiet and reasonable size compared with other European hotels and the beds were most comfortable. The hotel staff are very polite and speak fluent English.
