“Cruelly Redecorated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

The Tannhauser faces the Bismarkplatz at the beginning of the old town. From the pictures on the wall, the Tannhauser was an elegant hotel in 1919. The elegance is gone--it has been cruelly redecorated in ultra modern. That said, it is a perfectly adequate place to stay, large rooms, a very helpful staff--just not our cup of tea.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

Welcome was great, the gentleman at check-in carried up my suitcase (did not see an elevator). It's an old building that has been very nicely and unusually remodeled. Very comfortable rooms and nicely appointed bathrooms.

Breakfast was excellent, good choices and good coffee.

The location is perfect, in the center, right across from shops and plenty of restaurants. It's also convenient by car (but you park nearby, and it's not too expensive, it was 10 euros per day).

Pro's
* Perfect location just on the edge of the old city
* Free wireless
* Historic hotel but completely redesigned in a minimalist, modern style
* Large, comfortable bed
* Flat screen with numerous channels including BBC, CNN, etc.
* Reasonably good breakfast, included in the rate
* Great value for money (paid 100 euros for a single)
* Friendly and helpful front desk staff
* Right on several tram lines if you need to catch public transport

Con
* The wireless, while free, seemed to switch on and off at points. Not sure if that was due to the wireless service or my laptop, but it made connecting a bit frustrating.

Stayed May 2012, traveled solo

Pleasantly surprised by the size and layout of the room. Everything was clean and modern, including excellent WiFi access and speed throughout the building. Nice high ceilings. Breakfast buffet was good, overall a great experience. The only slight downside is that if you get a room facing the main street you can get a fair bit of street noise at night. For the price, would stay there again.

Staff were very helpful and breakfast was great. Good value for money. The only downside was the lack of kettle and tea/coffee in the room and the room did smell a bit smokey. All in all, however, a very enjoyable stay!

Nice well equipped rooms. Style and design are exquisite. If on a business trip, the perfect place to relax after work and in the vicinity of all trendy places.
Breakfast is superbe.
Friendly owners with a creative mind
