Please with the location on this tree lined street with a park just out, as our family lives on the same street. The room was nice, clean and quiet with a nice view of the area around us. About a 15 minute walk from the main train station and an easy walk to the tram line. Great breakfast.

Excellent location of the hotel. Quiet area. Very good restaurant with excellent food. Good service. In case of very hot days the lack of air conditioning might have been a problem - but this is the only minus to find.

Free parking is advertised for the hotel. In reality it is a small 6 or 7 car parking lot. If you don't get there early enough reception directs you to find more "free parking" on the street. Good luck finding a spot. The old East Germany may have had lots of parking available due to lack of cars but that... More

We were staying in the hotel while visiting friends who lived a few streets away. It was ideally located for walking to their house and included breakfast in the price, which is why we chose it over another hotel round the corner which was actually opposite our friends' apartment. We were given what must be one of the best rooms... More

This is where my wife and I usually stay when we visit my parents (who live nearby) and leave the kids with them. It's a basic - actually mid-range - hotel. As it is a combination of several early 20th century buildings, there are very different shapes and sizes of rooms. Furniture is always basic hotel stuff, so is the... More

We stayed here on a business trip. The room was comfortable. The breakfast was included and had a nice selection. The rooms were quiet. The only issue was trying to connect to another guests room and the front desk staff were not able to do this because they didn't speak English.

Nice hotel in a quiet area of the city. Rooms are well equipped and clean. Bathroom is large without a separate shower. Service is friendly and quick. The restaurant serves Italian food, which is OK if you don't want to go for dinner outside the hotel. Breakfast is very good.

Great hotel just a 20 minute walk from the Altstadt, or Streetcar stops are 5 minutes from the hotel. Easy parking in the hotel lot or in the basement garage.

The location was fine for a city which can be bleak at times. It is situated on a treelined street with plenty of parking space. The towncentre is about half an hour's walk away. Not too bad but there were massive reconstruction works on near the station which caused a bit of a detour qnd delay. The corner room was... More
