Two nights business visit, reception is convenient, rooms are in three separate buildings. Elevator in the middle of the corridor is silent. Good free floor area in normal room for two person. El. water pot with limited selection of coffee and tea. Bed is average, you can ask for an additional pillow in different types. Cosy breakfast .

Hotel Alte Werft is one of the older hotels in Papenburg. Entire hotel is full of character, with shipbuilding memorabilia all over the place. The room are a little outdated (apart form TVs). Beds are small but bathroom was huge and comforting (had a bathtub included, awesome!). Great restaurant and the bar on the ground floor, with spectacular breakfast in... More

I only spent one night at this hotel, but it would do for multiple nights. Located very close to the shipyard. The design and upgrades were exceptionally built. Room was very nice and big. I will definitely stay here again

The old ship yard hotel showed nicely how ships where built in the past and is providing an old school flair. Good rooms with plenty of space in the room as well in the bathroom. The wardrobe is a walk-in closet. Breakfast with various choices for each taste.

This hotel has its bones in workshops of a shipyard ( now decommissioned of course !). The main dining hall has a certain industrial vibe which is interesting. The rest of the hotel is a bit stark - nothing like rooms with a vivid red carpet teamed with teal blue chairs. But it was comfortable and spacious. Bathrooms were functional... More

I had 3 nights at Alte Werft. Everything worked well. Room was clean and quite big. Furniture is bit outdated. Only negative topic is the railroad nearby. It makes somewhat noice. Gym is small and outdated. Any Yankee would refuse to visit it. All gears are from mid '80 or at least that's how they feel. Restaurant is excellent. They... More

We stayed as a group on business. They struggled a bit with speedy service at the bar during peak hour, that is unforgivable after a long day.....rooms are good, food excellent. Wifi was NOT FREE. A hotel of this standard should offer free wifi. Once paid it was very slow also, unforgivable. The train is a factor passing by very... More

If you live the experience to have an accomodation in a former yard, that's the only opportunity you have worldwide... I think. Rooms are comfortable, always include walk-inside guardarobe, spacious toilet and reasonably priced minibar. Restaurant is nice, even if wine selection will be by far largest than the food selection. Breakfast buffet is a plus: large selection include several... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The big different! The Hotel ,,Alte Werft" was opened in the machine hall where the ,,Meyer Werft" shipyard manufactured compressors from 1870 until its relocation in 1975. Where it smelled like oil and grease some 30 years ago it now smells like coffee. Where sweaty workmen wearing helmets and working gloves once toiled the hotel guests now help themselves at the rich breakfast buffet. ... more   less
