This hotel has its bones in workshops of a shipyard ( now decommissioned of course !). The main dining hall has a certain industrial vibe which is interesting. The rest of the hotel is a bit stark - nothing like rooms with a vivid red carpet teamed with teal blue chairs. But it was comfortable and spacious. Bathrooms were functional... More

I had 3 nights at Alte Werft. Everything worked well. Room was clean and quite big. Furniture is bit outdated. Only negative topic is the railroad nearby. It makes somewhat noice. Gym is small and outdated. Any Yankee would refuse to visit it. All gears are from mid '80 or at least that's how they feel. Restaurant is excellent. They... More

We stayed as a group on business. They struggled a bit with speedy service at the bar during peak hour, that is unforgivable after a long day.....rooms are good, food excellent. Wifi was NOT FREE. A hotel of this standard should offer free wifi. Once paid it was very slow also, unforgivable. The train is a factor passing by very... More

I stayed with my business partners one night at this hotel. It's an old shipyard and the lobby and the restaurant are in the main building. Food was typical from the region and prices for food and wine was reasonable.All The rooms are spacious but having the train tracks just close by, the trains by night making a lot of... More

The hotel is in Papenburg, Emsland, Germany. It is a converted shipyard. Excellent position. Excellent parking no need for a car to see the town. Bedrooms are very large. A walk in shower in the large bathroom. Take a room on the canal side it is quiet. Breakfast is a normal buffet breakfast. Young staff try and help. A little... More

If you live the experience to have an accomodation in a former yard, that's the only opportunity you have worldwide... I think. Rooms are comfortable, always include walk-inside guardarobe, spacious toilet and reasonably priced minibar. Restaurant is nice, even if wine selection will be by far largest than the food selection. Breakfast buffet is a plus: large selection include several... More

Very nice and really big rooms with perfect beds! The hotel itself is modern, but the restaurant is an old shipyard. Everything looks really goed and the food (including the breakfast) is perfect. The staff is friendly.

If you didn't know it before, Alte Werft reminds you that Papenburg is all about ships! But they do it in a "not too overdone" way. Their rooms are a good size and well outfitted. The decor is a little dated and you'll pay for internet but honestly, when you meet the staff and enjoy their breakfast and brunch, all... More

Stayed at this hotel while on business in north-west Germany. It is built from an old ship dock and still has the dock structural parts as part of the dining area. The hotel is fairly new and the rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff were friendly and there is a nice dining area and bar. I did not... More
