We would recommend this hotel for price and location to the train station plus you are easily in walking distance to the old city. The trams and airport bus are all located at the train station and this is where you are going to pick up your tours. Do not be afraid to use the tram or subway. Once you get the hang of it it is a great way to get around. The train station also has food stands and grocery mart. You can grab a beer or water to take on your train ride or just have a snack and drinks for your room. The hotel does not provide face cloths so take your own. Also you must get a new password each day for the wifi. I did not know this and could not figure out why it did not work. We grabbed breakfast at Coffee Fellows as they make a great Americans decaf and is was on the way of our travels each morning. Breakfast at the hotel is too expensive. You will find the food portions huge in Germany. We ordered an appetizer and main course and split it. They were happy the bring us an extra plate and we saved money and had a great meal each time with no left overs. The rooms are clean but small compared to our standards but you are in Europe. We had no complaints and I would return here to stay and also recommend it.
