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

Great breakfast! Location could be better in terms of walking to restaurants and shops but is directly on major tramway routes. Staff were great and very helpful. Restaurant felt posh even though the prices were very reasonable.

Yes it does look ex-communist from the outside as much of the city does. This was after all East Germany and there are Stalinist buildings around. But the hotel seems to have been refurbished a few years ago. It's very decent inside, and the rooms are of good size. The staff are friendly - but some struggle with English. Hotel... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Ratswaage. It was a great location and the staff was very friendly. The room and the bathroom was a very nice size and CLEAN. The morning breakfast buffet included a wonderful array of meats, cheeses, fruit and rolls; as well as eggs, sausage, bacon and other delicious foods. Internet connection is extra; but... More
