“Excellent value for money (with corporate rate)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

The hotel is centrally located, a parking lot nearby, very good food, free internet, excellent room.
If you stay with Corporate rate it is a perfect deal - if you have to pay the full rate, it's a real problem.

Room Tip: Don't take the rooms which face the harbour - you will have to pay extra

I recently spent 2 days at the Atlantic Hotel Kiel.

I was not able to book via their website, so I sent an email stating my request, and I received an email confirmation promptly (nice). Prices are extremely reasonable, considering this is a downtown 5* hotel with superior floor rooms at less than 150 Euros (the week before I had spent 165 Euros for a basic Novotel in the middle of nowhere).

The hotel does not have its own parking lot, but one can park in the adjacent 2-storied outdoors parking lot, and there is a sky-bridge between this parking lot and the hotel's first floor.

Check-in was prompt. I had a room on the 7th floor, facing the main road and the harbour. When I entered the room I was a bit worried as there was a lot of noise from the street below. However, this was due to the windows being open and as soon as I closed the windows there was perfect silence (very very impressive sound-proofed windows). Closing the windows is not an issue even in the (Kiel) summer as the air conditioning worked perfectly and silently.

Nice bed with German-style down quilts, large and well appointed bathroom with heated towel racks. Work desk is nice. Internet access is free, but requires an RJ-45 network plug (see my photos) which should not be an issue for most normal laptops, but may be absent from some of the mini-laptops and is definitely absent from smartphones. Internet access is a bit slow and will require you to re-login every 2-3 hours.

Breakfast and dinner are both served in the Pier 16 restaurant on the main floor. Restaurant is bright airy with lots of available seating and prompt and friendly service. Breakfast choice was excellent including made-to-order eggs, omelettes, pancakes and waffles. Dinner choices were typical good hearty German fare. Good choice of wine by the glass.

There is a bar on the 8th floor with an outside deck area overlloking the harbour (where one can see cruise/ferry ships leave every afternoon). Very friendly and attentive bar staff, and a good choice of Whisky (including a 2001 Vintage Springbank that I had never seen before).

On the last day I was able to keep the room until 6pm for a half-day fare, an extremely pleasant option which allowed me to come back to the hotel and get out of my business suit before embarking on a 6 hour drive to my next stop.

Overall an excellent choice at a price that, considering what one is getting, is extremely affordable. If the Atlantic Hotel Kiel rates are OK for your budget, then don't hesitate, you will get your money's worth and more.

Room Tip: Get a room over the main road (and harbour) as the windows are perfectly sound-proofed and the harbo...

We stayed just one night here before a cruise. It was not cheap, but this is how all hotels should be run. It is fresh and modern and if I had one concern minimalistic. Some pictures on the walls of the corridors would be nice, especially with the shipping connection. Still has to be the best in kiel. Stay here if you can get in!

Room Tip: We got a high room - 6th floor overlooking the water - sun the morning was nice

Stayed for 6 nights, breakfast was great, location is just in middle of everything and staff were superb. This is my second year stay in Kiel and Atlantic and I will definitely return again in future. Hotel is also located in front of leisure ferries where you can take a boat trip to Laboe. Train station and shopping mall are just located in front of hotel.

This is an absolutely wonderful hotel with first class rooms and service. Must be the best in Kiel. My wife and I stayed there for a weekend trip and simply couldn´t fault it. New, modern hotel with a very good location across the train station and 5 minutes pleasant walking from the shopping district of Kiel. Large and well appointed rooms - had one on the 7th floor with a nice view. Very nice restaurant both for dinner and breakfast and a classy roof top cocktail bar with great views of the harbour. Top notch service all around. Parking is available in nearby parking house - would have been perfect if the hotel had had its own parking but it was ok. Noticed a lot of nice children facilites and the hotel seems suited for both business and pleasure, incl. family trips.

Excellent, stylish, modern hotel. Rooms are good size and well equipped. Nice, modern bathroom. Very good breakfast. Perfect location right in the centre of Kiel next to station and harbour. Great bar (Deck 8). I'll come here again when in Kiel.

We (a family of four) wanted a place to sleep over one night before taking the ferry to Oslo. The Atlantic was near the ferry and the town centre so we went for it. We were very pleasantly surprised! It was perfect for us. We prefer modern and clean to rustic and this hotel was ideal. We got two adjoining rooms, something our two young children thought was great.
Breakfast was also very good, with a wide variety for all ages. The roof bar was also nice. Finally the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The only slight negative is that since it is opposite the main train station there were some dodgy people hanging about outside. But this is of course nothing the hotel can do anything about...
