“Fantastic hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Great hotel in a great location! Service was great throughout the hotel from reception to bar to dining room. Breakfast was fantastic with a variety of fresh meats, cheeses, fruits, etc. our two bedrooms were very clean, modern and comfortable.
Will definitely stay again when back in Bremen!

We spent three nights in the Swissotel Bremen and could not fault the level service we received. This began even before our arrival when we called to ask if early check-in was available (it is not) as we were arriving before 15:00 check-in with our two-year old son. However, the hotel said that they would make a note in the reservation and try to accommodate us should our room be available. When we arrived our room was ready and we had no problems putting our son down for his afternoon nap.

In brief, the hotel is centrally located (about half-a-mile from the train station), a short walk from the city centre and near the S-bahn (tram). We stayed on the fifth floor facing the nearby park. The rooms on that side are all different sizes and one person in our party had a room larger than our own. The room was clean, well laid out and had the facilities that one would expect of a business hotel (internet, safe, coffee maker, umbrella etc.). The good night (turn down) service and pillow menu were a nice touch. The only major downside to the room, which is a trend we have noticed with many hotels these days, is the use of a frosted door for the bathroom. This is not our preference but certainly not a bad thing.

Upon our arrival we at lunch at the restaurant on the first floor and that was good quality and very well priced (business lunch for €6.90 set menu). They accommodated our son very well and brought over colouring pencils and paper.

Bearing in mind the location of the hotel there is some city noise but nothing that bothered us nor our son. However, if sound is a problem I would recommend one of the rooms further down the park side or on the inside atrium area (though obviously no view with ones here).

As noted on their website, the hotel does not offer its own parking. However, a car park is just a two-minute walk away.

Although the hotel is geared towards the business traveller we found it to be perfectly adequate for our son. They provided a cot bed with pillow and duvet, a cuddly toy and a musical toy as well. The fridge was ideal for storing his milk for the mornings. Therefore, I would recommend this for a family unreservedly.

Room Tip: For quietness choose an atrium (inward facing) room or one further down the park side.

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time at the swissotel. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable, we did not want to get up. Coffee, tea and chocolate in room was such a pleasant surprise. The bathrobe and slippers were ready to be used. The spa area was light and quiet. The only complain we had that was that the sauna was shut way before the time expected. Great breakfast with to order egg specialties. The service was exceptional and attentive. So close to the pedestrian area, we came back to take a nap and started our shopping spree again.

This is an excellent hotel with an excellent location in the heart of Beautiful Bremen, Germany!

As you enter, you'll be greeted by friendly staff and a luxurious, modern, reception desk area and lobby. The lobby holds some nice shops and connected to the building are a few different bars and a Deli/Bakery.

The check-in process was notably quick. Any request to the staff was taken very seriously with quick response time and delivery of requested items (extra blankets, coffee, etc). The word "no" was never used by the employees as they always wanted to go above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction.

The rooms were extremely spacious and included ammonites that you don't often receive. The single-cup coffee maker was an excellent addition, as there were several different drink options for no additional charge (hot chocolate, tea, coffee, and espresso). I did not partake in the minibar, but it would make a nice addition to the in-room experience for those who are interested. The appliances were modern, of high quality, and created a comfortable and cozy atmosphere in the room. The bathroom was also very nice, with a large shower/bath combo with excellent water pressure.

Perhaps the best perk of this hotel was its location. If you're heading to the Christmas markets, you'll be happy to walk only 5-10 minutes. The train station is about a 5 minute walk, and the historic "Schnoor" district is only about 10 minutes. There is a tram stop right out front of the hotel which serves the entire Bremen area including the airport which is only about 15-20 minutes away.

Overall, I'd call this hotel an excellent choice if the price is anywhere between $0 and $250 a night. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Utilize the Public transportation system. There is no reason to pay extra for a cab. 3 of my fav...

Would like to recommend this lovely hotel. Wonderful room relatively large, very clean and pleasant. Great breakfast included, lots of choice and good service. Only problem, I had to wait 10 mins for a table while rushing to the conference.

This is a great hotel to stay in Bremen. The location of the hotel is very central, few minutes to the train station and town center. Rooms are very comfortable, with simple décor but elegant. Staff is very professional and friendly. Breakfast is great with a large variety of food. This hotel has all elements expected from a 5 star hotel! It’s good value for money and I will definitely go back when visiting Bremen.

My wife and I stayed here whilst in Bremen visiting the Christmas markets. Firstly, I have to say the location is excellent, a short walk from the Old town. The rooms are a nice size, however the bathrooms are a little dated, but have been recently updated and were spotless. The breakfast at the hotel is superb - excellent choice and quality! Ive read some reviews complaining that it is not truly 5*, I have to say that although the rooms may not be as nice as some 5* hotels, the service and quality in the hotel certainly is 5*. The Bayern Munich football squad were staying at the hotel whilst we were there, and if it was good enough for them, its good enough for me! I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and I am happy that I chose it for our stay in Bremen!

Room Tip: Choose a high floor if staying over the weekend
