“Remarkable all round”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Hotel Kronprinzen is located in a quiet residential road around 5 miles (8 km) from the centre of Bonn. The building is an attractive villa on a junction of Rheinallee and another road. Traffic is light.
I'd booked after an e-mail exchange and on arrival the hotel receptionist was expecting me. Rather unexpectedly - at least for me - was being asked to pay for my stay upfront.
I was given Room 9 which is right at the top of the house - up two floors and then, when opening the door, there's yet another staircase. If you've got a large amount of heavy luggage, be warned it's all stairs. There's no lift (elevator).
But as I got to the top of my "own" staircase, what a revelation. The room is the entire attic area of the house and has only recently been refurbished. The room was very large, with a good sized double bed, an open-plan shower and bath area, separate toilet plus a desk. Three Velux-style windows provided excellent natural light and ventilation. There's also a portable air conditioning unit.
The quality of the fixtures and fittings is first rate - great bath and shower (probably 2m x 1m) with an immense glass screen. And something I've never seen before - a shower head that lights up and changes colour as water flows!
Breakfast is an additional charge, and is served in the breakfast room on the ground floor. There's a wide variety of food, including eggs cooked to order, fresh fruit, cereals, rolls and more. I suggest the breakfast is good value.
Parking, should you be travelling by car, is available on the roads around the hotel (well, on the pavements actually) and is free. There are also car parking spaces in the hotel, charged extra. I parked on the road and had no problems.
The Kronprinzen is on a bus route that goes into the centre of Bonn, passing the UN campus, World Conference Centre and Deutsche Welle, as well as the museums. The 610 runs until 2330 every evening and I made good use of this during my daily commute to and from the Conference Centre.
Overall, the Kronprinzen is to be recommended.
