This is a nice enough Hotel which we stayed at during the Photokina, with helpful and friendly staff including the cleaner who died of fright when I ripped the door open one morning....
Very clean, professional and reasonable size room.
Not close to public transport ( 4 block walk away from town to the nearest tram, even further for U-Bahn )
Paid double normal rates because there was a trade fair on - but that's quite normal.
Air conditioning simply doesn't work at all, and didn't for 3 of my colleagues either. On coldest temperature setting which was 5.c , all the "AC" did was send air around the room.
The first iron and ironing board I had delivered was missing a leg and un-useable, and the replacement resembled more of an undulating mountain top than a board.
As you so often encounter in Hotels, the cheap Iron was leaking during use, which is very un-nerving considering it's plugged into the mains.
Getting a beer in the Hotel was often difficult as no-one was there during off peak hours.
If I was doing Photokina again I would not stay here as the taxi bill really mounted up.
