“No airconditioning--avoid this hotel until Fall”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

When we arrived, the hotel informed us that the hotel was in a "soft opening". We hadn't seen this fact on travel websites we checked when booking, and the hotel's been open for three months. The hotel is understaffed and has no airconditioning in the guestrooms. We were facing north on a cool day (cloudy, high in the low 70's) and we still couldn't get the room cool enough for real comfort, even when we called down to housekeeping to borrow a fan. There is a window that opens, but the room is designed for air conditioning, not ventilation. If the hotel runs out of fans you will swelter.

The room was OK, clean and new but with scuffs in the paint. We couldn't find the remote for the TV, so we called the desk and were told that there was no staff to find another remote.

The groundfloor windows are covered in dust, so the exterior appearance is Third World, rather than German.

We were very disappointed in this hotel. The hotel may think that they are discounting sufficiently to make up for the lack of service and amenities, but we think it's still overpriced and should be avoided for now.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a low floor, away from the sun.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for night, at first when we turned up we thought that the booking was a mistake,as thw hotel resembled a building site. But we eventually found the entrance. The rooms were just ok, they are trying to make the rooms modern and to the naked eye they are but they are rennovating on the cheap with cheap materials. One difficult thing to work out was the lighting which was up of three table lights which didnt light the room up. Didnt have breakfast so cant comment, but the hotel shouldnt be taking guests at the moment.

Room Tip: dont stay there

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was super clean and modern. The stuff is friendly and helpful. Mini bar is included. Free parking, they have their own garage.
Restaurant area looks very modern, with white table-clothes on the dining tables. We didn't go to eat, though, we were running late.
It was a Christmas time and when we checked out they gave us a small gift - set of body creams. I didn't expect that!
Overall, for the money we paid ($100), we couldn't have found a better hotel! I paid the same amount in Paris and Rome and there were 2* cheap hotels, the worst ever in my life. Awful small old rooms with thin walls (and chipped wallpapers on it) and no air conditioning. It was disgusting. So, this hotel in Germany was the heaven on Earth!
