Stayed in a Double room that was modern and well designed with lots of space and fresh air. Room included coffee machine and a desk. The bed was very comfortable too. The only issue is the noise from the street but it stops at night. 2 mi. walk from city center and very close to restaurants too. Breakfast was also... More

I booked a room at the Grey Hotel at the very last minute but it was the right decision! An unassuming exterior, I was greeted warmly after a long drive and checkin was a breeze. The room is simple but impeccably clean and comfortable. Modern furnishings and plenty of light helped make the room feel airy and larger than it... More

We visited the Grey hotel for a business trip and while the reviews on booking.com had raved about it I'm not sure I was convinced! Overall not a bad hotel but a single duvet on a king bed??? Confused me slightly and when I asked for a double they brought another single... Language barrier! The TV has one English Channel... More

while at the hotel the shower head broke clean off. I was informed we would be charged for this, I refused as I did not break it, it was broken when we arrived. Today I discovered the hotel had charged me £37 taken out of my account, without my consent or knowledge. I emailed and was told this was for... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in March. The hand held shower attachement was leaking badly when I used it and then fell off. The following day the receptionist told me she was charging us €15 for breaking it, I said we had not broken and were not payong for it. She was disbelieving and said she would need to discuss...

Very nice hotel, nice atmosphere, great breakfast, clean rooms, big bathrooms, no carpet on the floor, amneties in the bathroom, rooms to the inner courtyard with balcony - and all that just for less than 100 € per night. That's a great deal. You don't have to book the hotel parking, there is a public parking next door that you... More

I chose this hotel for the location (traveling by train, and going to a concert near the station - both not even a 5 minute walk). the staff is nice indeed, and the hotel reasonably clean (though when you take the strangely slow elevator, you get a good look through the glass at chewing gum and old leaves on the...

The Grey is a fantastic friendly hotel located in the best possible way for exploring the city. It is 2 minutes away from the entrance to the main train station, 5 minutes away from the high street. You can get to the underground station within 5 minutes. There is an interesting cafe/bar in an old tram nearby on the Kempstrasse.... More

Hotel has large rooms and comfortable big size beds. Our 3-bed room, actually was 2 bedroom apartment. Location is perfect, near central station and main pedestrian zone and streets. You have a big shopping mall nearby and a lot of cafes and restaurants.
