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

Worth it for the breakfast alone, with so many tasty warm and cold choices, you are sure to start the day with a smile! Staff was nice, shower works well, clean good size rooms, Looking forward to staying again!

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

I had high hopes for this hotel but was sadly disappointed. Internet had extra charge and isn't even free down at reception area (only access is a very slow and dated computer), expensive breakfast, rather clueless reception workers... Four a hotel with such a star rating I expected more.

This was a nice hotel but slightly dated, in keeping with much of the former east germany. It was however clean, big rooms, and comfortable. It was located on the main street/pedestrian mall and so well located for visiting the Uni Magdeburg or seeing the city. You could walk from the station but it costs less than 5 euros for... More

The staff was very attentive, helpful and pleasant. Wonderful breakfast display. We stayed in the bar very late, and the bartender was very pleasant - even though she couldn't speak English, she tried very hard so that we all felt comfortable and tolerated our butchered German. Very nice hotel - a pleasant experience.

Hotel Ratswaage is located in the center of Magdeburg, easily reached from the train station and by car. The parking garage is a "good walk" away from the hotel - nicely connected, but if you have heavy luggage you certainly want to drop it off first and then go and park your car. The hotel offers good sized rooms, which... More
