I spent a night in this hotel when on business trip. The grandeur is a bit outdated, but still, I had a good stay. Spacious and clean rooms with great, comfortable beds and a large bathroom (pity there's a shower curtain). WiFi is unfortunately a bit slow. Nice wellness area with swimming pool, sauna and enough hot and cold showers.... More

I stayed here for a music event and loved everything about it. Although the decor is, as others have said, dated (and after all the 70s are coming back into fashion now!), everything is spotlessly clean and comfortable, the staff couldn't be kinder or more helpful, and the location is perfect - an easy walk to the centre of town....

Stayed one night. The room was excellent (we were on the 11th floor with nice view). Breakfast was very good and this hotel offers almost everything, except they should have vending machines or a small store to buy water and/or soft drinks. The location is excellent, within a walkin distance from the city center. The park by the hotel is... More

One night stay on route to Berlin. Pleasant comfortable rooms, spotlessly lean. Excellent buffet dinner (wine list a bit thin but good Weissburgunder) and buffet breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. Automatic alarm at 7 a.m when the local church bells ring.

We were there for one night when attending a live concert in Veltins arena. The hotel needs a lot of refurbishment, public places like lobby, bar and restaurant as well as the rooms.

Stayed only one night and had a burger in the restaurant. First time for a long time I saw a fatTV in a Hotelroom. This hotel have seen its glorious days. Came in late and left early but for a Maritim hotel this would be the bottom end. Really nothing wrong with the hotel and the service was great.
