The Das Nikolai was a great place to stay and in a really nice location just far enough from the hubbub of the Marienplatz area but close enough that I could still walk to the center in about 25 minutes if I wanted. The hotel is conveniently located almost equidistant between two metro stops and super easy to find. The building itself is pretty with window-boxes and located in a little square. I arrived early in the morning--much earlier than I had anticipated. My room was understandably not ready, but I was welcomed to leave my suitcase and told that my room would be ready by 2:00p.m. Once in my room (before the 2:00p.m. time), I loved the hardwood floors, the big window that opened with heavy drapes to keep out early-morning sunshine, the desk/table that collected all of my random stuff, and the wonderful, comfortable bed. The bathroom, though standard European-small, suited me perfectly and had a great shower and lots of toiletries (sewing kit, I'm looking at you). My room was tidied up each day and although I saw the lady out in the hallway, she never once knocked on my door when I was in the room! Breakfast was excellent with a huge selection of, well, everything, including smoked salmon, mixed berries, and freshly cooked eggs however you like them. The staff were incredibly nice, efficient, and more than happy to give recommendations. Fantastic little place. Stay here!
