As this hotel is in a residential area it is very quiet and peaceful. It is not far from either the main station or a tram stop. The rooms are a nice size and are clean and comfortable. The bathroom is a little cramped for space but is functional. The staff are friendly and helpful. Good free internet is provided... More

Good hotel for staying a day or two. Location is not very close to the city-center, you need to go on foot for about twenty-thirty minutes to reach famous cathedrals or you can go by tram several stations. Nice breakfast, very tasty.The staff is pleasant, but reception doean't always speak English. You can take coffee-to-go there. Beds and pillows were... More

This hotel was a genuine "find", in a lovely early 20th century neighborhood, very well-appointed and with friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant was quite good. Sitting areas are cozy and comfortable; sleeping room was very comfortable also. I hope I can stay here again some day.

What? WLan connection rather than wifi. Good parking, but a bit far out of the old town (say 20 minutes walk). Room was fine, except there were no blanking blinds, so if you are concerned about not being able to sleep in light, this is not a good choice. Dinner was ok. Steak excellent, bread awful. Fresh fruit salad for... More

If you have a satellite navigator, trust it! Otherwise you will not find this hotel. A "healthy" walk from the city centre. A typical BW hotel with its own charm.Old building but modern inside. Spacy and comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast included. Parking place either in yard or garage.

I chose this hotel basically only because I was arriving late to Magdeburg. Cheaper and/or more central hotels did not have 24 hour reception like Geheimer Rat. It was still only 15 minute walk from the train station to the hotel. Its true that this hotel is a little bit distant from the city center but then again Magdeburg is... More

Tired of chain hotels? You could be anywhere in certain well known chains...not the case with Hotel Geheimer Rat. Yes...a rather unfortunate combination of a not very well-regarded chain and a not very well appreciated rodent. Well, that was my thought as I entered to stay in the very German hotel. However, German food, German hospitality and German efficiency- so... More
