This was the most convenient hotel during our entire 10 day Europe trip. It's right off of Koenigsplatz, the main center of everything in Augsburg. And Koenigsplatz is just one Bahn stop away from Hauptbahnhof. We were right in the center of everything. The hotel itself is just a few buildings to the left of Salamander (the shoe store) and all the other shops, so we could just walk everywhere. We booked a three-bed room, and the beds were quite comfortable. There was an extra heater in the bathroom, which we were glad to use when the weather got really cold. The bathroom was a little snug, though, and the shower drained slowly. But the best part of the hotel was the breakfast, which was included in the cost of the room. It was BEAUTIFUL. We came down on Sunday morning, and the tables were decorated with beatiful yellow tablecloths, tea cups with pink roses on them, and a glass goblet in the middle. A lady in a Dirndl (the traditional Bavarian dress) lit a candle and placed it in the glass goblet once we were seated. The entire room was beautiful. Some of the larger tables had candelabras in the middle, with plants decoratively draped across them. There was also lovely classical music playing in the background. It was so much fun. The breakfast itself was a buffet of bread, meat, cheese, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, etc. The staff of the hotel also nicely let us stash our luggage behind their desk after we'd checked out (since our train didn't leave until the afternoon).
There were just a few negatives. Since we'd booked a three-bed room, we were on the top floor. There was an elevator, luckily, but it was tiny. Also, our room was on the fifth floor, and the elevator only went to the fourth floor, so we had to lug our bags up one more flight of stairs. It wasn't horrible, though. Also, they don't have free Wi-Fi in the rooms. You can sign up for T Mobile Hot Spot (which is fairly expensive), or you can use their free internet kiosk in the lobby. Also, the lamps in our room didn't work. The main overhead light worked (which was a beautiful light fixture), but our bed-side lamps wouldn't turn on. Haha, just as a side note--don't try to put your drinks on the ledge outside your window to get cold or they'll roll off to the street below.
Overall, I loved this hotel. I would definitely stay here again for its convenient location and amazing breakfast room.
