There is nothing majorly wrong with this place ... it is a Hilton after all. The location is great ... the staff is very nice and helpful (especially the reception and bar folks) ... but I really wonder about the Nickel N’ Dime’ing. I picked this place because our travel system flagged it for Wi-Fi. I knew that places in Europe usually charge extra for Internet but for some reason it sounded like it was included. I guess the “Wi-Fi” in the reservation system meant it is “available” but the in-room is actually 20 Euros for 24 hours (this is not 24 hours of use but 24 hours of clock time). It is free in the lobby and bar so you will still be ahead even after spending a few Euros on some Kölsch there …
Breakfast is a bit pricy at 27 Euros. 27 Euros ... really? This is more than you have to pay for a really decent dinner at one of the restaurants along the Rhine. You can find several bakeries within walking distance where you can buy a nice breakfast for ~5-6 Euros.
