We stayed here while on a driving tour around Germany. The hotel is conveniently positioned with a public multi-storey car park nearby. The cathedral is a short walk away, as is the old town. The room was comfortable and clean, but the bathroom could have been better, I think the cleaner rushed the mopping that day. Our friends also stayed,... More

Stayed with my mum and sister for the weekend. For this price range you really can't get any better. Hotel was immaculate. Breakfast excellent (hot and cold food, good coffee, nice staff). Small area to have drinks in the late evening if you'd like to. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, we were constantly offered Christmas biscuits/hot wine and... More

This hotel is 5 mins walk from the main station. It is worth going to the opposite side than the more popular Cathedral area. Rooms were modern and typical size for Germany.

“Choose the inner court for quiet and the smell of early morning bakery activity!”
 of 5 bubbles duncanh237, Nov 1, 2014 | Read review
“We were in Room 316 which was adequate but there are better rooms with larger showers. Our room overlooked offices and the Marriot hotel opposite. It was a bit disconcerting to see the office workers looking our way after dark which meant we had to pull the curtains across thus losing the warmth from the radiator. However, there was no noise at night.”
