We were apprehensive on reading some of the previous reviews - especially regarding the annex. But we had a very pleasant three night stay and the staff were extremely helpful. We were in the main hotel, in two standard rooms, which were of a very good standard compared with the many business hotels I have stayed in in UK. So I can't comment on the annex business.
The staff were universally polite and helpful, printing out our flight tickets for us and even supplying some German phrases for one of our son's postcards! We liked the massimo coffee machine and the good size of the rooms, with plenty of storage space, and a good hot shower. There is a mini-bar, and a large TV, lots of ambient lighting. The TV had fewer channels than usual - not a big deal at all, just thought I'd mention it.
We ate one night in the restaurant which was busy - a tip would be to reserve a table rather than just turn up, which is what we did, but we had a drink at the bar while the very efficient head waitress sorted us out a table, and we had a very decent meal, though not cheap. There was a good mix of couples, families and business people staying while we were there. We used the pool and the fitness room, though the pool closed on the second day. The pool was better than most hotel pools, being long enough to actually do some serious swimming.
The hotel is a five minutes stroll from the Reichensbergerplatz underground station - there is a 7-11 type store nearby but it doesnt sell much - and the underground journey is five minutes down to the Haubahnhof central station, where we had coffee and croissants in one of the cafes each morning - at 18 euros a head we decided not to bother with the hotel breakfast. There is also a well-stocked supermarket and numerous shops at the main station, and the Dom cathedral is pretty much straight outside the train station.
