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

If you don't have sat nav I suspect you will never find this hotel. Its tucked away in the middle of a complicated one way system. There a car park and plenty of public parking nearby.

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

Atrocious service in every respect!!! Following a disasterous booking experience with the agents - booking.com, we set off on our Christmas trip to Germany hoping all would be well. Upon check in, we were greeted by a less than warm welcome and were afforded VERY basic service and communication. Our first impression of our room was one of 'OK' but... More

We stayed at this hotel for 1 evening before travelling back home. -the first impression of the hotel isn't too positive as the entrance is somewhat small and the entrance area generally looked a bit tired. The hotel shouldn't be judged on first impressions however as the rooms were actually clean, tidy and spacious. The staff were particularly friendly and... More

This hotel is a pleasant surprise in Magdeburg. The centre of town is rather boring being totally rebuilt after WW2 but the hotel is in an old quarter that was spared. I got a warm welcome from the staff and the room was very nice with a writing desk, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. All neat and clean. Free Wifi... More

The hotel is set in a quiet, tree-lined avenue in Magdeburg about a 15-20 min walk from the railway station. I stayed in a single-bed room (number 55) which was immaculately clean and faced the rear of the hotel. There was no bath in the bathroom, only a shower but this had lots of hot water. The bed was comfortable... More
