The walk from the main station was relatively simple and short, and the Friesenplatz U-Bahn station was nearby. Checking in was swift and efficient (not least because I had checked... More

It's a place with good service and nice facilites... It's located in a very livery street with several restaurants and bars... It's walking distance from city center (15 min). The only thing that bothered me was that at the entrance there was a strong "bathroom"smell.

Location was superb and the hotel staff were as well. Free of charge drinks was a great surprise! Close to bars and restaurants. Walking distance to old town. Breakfast was also tasty, good variety of food.
