We stayed here 1 night after being in Germany for 2 weeks, awaiting a cruise to begin. Found them due to reviews on here. We paid $70Euro, about $95US for the room, which included breakfast.
From emails with the hotel, the info about reaching the hotel by taxi from central station and then to cruise terminal were spot on, about $10-11 euro. Much easier than walking, but walking is only about 15-20 minutes from Central Station.
After being in Germany for almost 2 weeks during pretty warm weather with no AC, it was a relief to be able to cool down the room. There was also coffee and tea in the room with a kettle; another nice touch not found in the hotels we stayed at in Germany. In the morning, the breakfast buffet was your typical European breakfast......eggs, toast, Nutella, meats, yogurt, cereal, just about anything outside cooked to order food.
The guy who checked us in gave us some info about the area for us to look around the afternoon we checked in. Also quickly provided multiple IDs for WiFi access as each room apparently only has 1 code assigned by default. In the morning, they held our luggage until we returned from sight seeing to get to the cruise terminal. Everyone we met was helpful and smiled. It was a good stop for us and I can see why it's been so highly rated.
