I was here on business so I didn't have to pay. But if I would have payd the room price I would have had some remarks. You can't charge that much for a room with no 4 star services! No extra blanket, no tea or coffee, no wireless wifi ecc. A lot of things were just not completely at a... More

This is supposed to be a four start hotel, but there is no wifi, no coffee in room, no kettle, no safe, no A/C, no soap, no shampoo. On the plus side, the rooms are quite large compared to most European rooms and the bed was quite good. We found Magedeburg a little busier than most of the other Eastern... More

Magdeburg is like a forgotten city some parts still set in the old east german style others new and vibrant. Around the hotel are many bars and places to eat.The hotel situates in the centre of town was beautiful good food and excellent staff.

I stayed here for one night in July. Temperatures outside were 36 degrees Celsius and inside not much cooler. Not so much as a fan to be had in the entire hotel. No free wifi at all (for the first time between Hamburg and Dresden), something which, given the 4-star status and the prices of the hotel is simply inadequate.... More

We searched for a hotel in Magdeburg and ended here although we assumed it would be dull, as se en from outside. We were wrong. We had great service, got a nice room with balcony on the top floor (ask for that), had a good breakfast included and access to the swimmingpool. The bed was big and comfortable, the room... More

We stayed at this hotel as a overnight stop on our way to Poland. The room was large and very spacious comfy beds. The hotel was in a central location. Dinner was a set meal and breakfast was a very large selection of various hot and cold food.. Overall I would stay here again.

I paid a lightning visit to Magdeburg to review SWEENEY TODD at the Opera House, and was booked in here .. I paid 55e for a clean, simple, comfy, amazingly quiet room in this very central hotel (walk 1.1k to station, 400m to theatre) for the one night. Spotless and very functional bathroom (but why do no German hotels provide... More

I spent two nights at Ratswaage Hotel in Magdeburg, maybe the most famous hotel in that city. The room was very large, though not so modern and the bathroom was also quite big. They have a nice swimming pool and fitness area, friendly personnel and a great breakfast buffet. I ate the best scrambled eggs with bacon there. Coffee at... More

We spent the Christmas 2013 holiday at this hotel (3 nights). We pick this hotel because it is walking distance to the Weihnachtsmarkt, has a decent pub, attached parking, and an excellent breakfast. I was able to negotiate a room for 3 people (me, my adult daughter and her boyfriend). So, we had a nice sized room with a king... More
