Radisson Blu Hotel, Bremen

Reviewed June 24, 2013

When I stayed, the hotel was in the process of changing identity, from Hilton to Raddison. The hotel is wonderfully located near the historic Bremen town square. Considering it had all been a smoking ruin in 1945, the restoration is fantastic.

The hotel is everything you would expect from a premium hotel in a good location. Lack of air conditioning in the room in summer is the only drawback. Internet access was complimentary/included in the tariff under the new management but not the old. Recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: In summer, a room not facing the busy street if you want to open the window.

We stayed in the Hilton for one night when passing through as we wanted to look at the old town. We were given an outside room with a window that opened but as it was on the main road it was pretty pointless as we couldn't sleep with the road noise. Having said that the room was clean and comfortable. We didn't use the bar or restaurant but we did use the pool/ sauna area which was very clean and restful. A word of warning to the sensitive, some men can't be bothered using the changing room.

the Manager was excellent in recognizing our status and also offered an upgrade for an additional fee which was excellent value. Location perfect and service very Professional. This is why I love the Hilton family Programs..they truly respect their returning customers and the Manager whom I spoke to..you were excellent!!! Also, the beds were at American Standards..so rare in Europe.

Room Tip: see if you can buy an upgrade. Location ..perfect

I stayed here for 3 nights as part of a group attending a conference on the hotel. I arrived just 1 day after it re-branded from Hilton to Radison Blu, so they were experiencing some teething problems with computer systems, etc., but the staff were very incredibly helpful and friendly, with mitigated any issues with slow processing of check-in.

The hotel itself is reasonable nice. The lobby area, resultant/bar is in a glass-covered courtyard, which makes its very bright and airy – altogether a nice atmosphere. My bedroom was unremarkable. Comfortable bed, small functional bathroom, kettle for tea/coffee, small safe (not big enough for full size laptop), robes, small desk area for working and the all-important free Wi-Fi. The view from my room was non-existent… small window and looking into another building!

The spa had a very small gym with 3 bikes and free weights. No treadmill, which was very disappointing. So a proper workout was not really possible. However, there are nice areas to run very close by along river, so that made up for it somewhat. There was a sauna and a small pool. The spa area was perfectly clean and appeared to always be quiet. A small basement oasis after a long day’s work.

The food was very good. Breakfast has a large selection of hot and cold meats, breads and fruit. The restaurant buffet was excellent and service very prompt.

The conference rooms were the usual thing… they opened into the open air lobby area, which meant conference delegates mixed with guests, but that's not really an issue.

The location is probably the best in Bremen. Less than 60 seconds walk to the heart of the old city ( and also the airport tram) makes it a perfect location.

All told, I was impressed and would return!

I stayed here for 2 days, the reception staff were friendly and polite and spoke perfect English. The room was spacious but both my colleague (in a separate room) and I, both noticed a faint but perceptible "sewage" odour in our rooms. I didn't notice it in the evening so may have been a drain issue. Breakfast quite pricey at 23 euros so we went to the Costa down the road, but another colleague who stayed rated the breakfast highly. Pleasant lounge area with attentive bar staff. Hotel is situated in the heart of Bremen so ideally placed for exploring the old town with its bars, restaurants and waterway. Becks Bistro does a jolly good curried sausage, Bremen being the home of Becks Brewery of course.
I would happily stay here again (especially if I'm not paying!)

The hotel is built around a covered courtyard and has what you would expect from a Hilton in Europe: well equipped and comfortable rooms, friendly and efficient front desk service, in-house parking and good food, including an excellent breakfast buffet. What is different about the hotel is its location, between the river and the Rathaus (old City Hall). Right next door is the charming street/walkway that among other things houses the Bremen casino and a very interesting clock with mechanical figurines. A short walk away is the very charming Schnur district with it's small, old houses, narrow streets (really narrow!) and a variety of restaurants, bars and interesting shops. The airport is just a tram ride away from the hotel.

Hotel is well located close to the city Old Town. It provides consistent excellent service, I stayed there 3 times so far and each time was very much impressed. The rooms are comfortable, large and clean. I also have to mention about great breakfast with a large variety of food, including freshly squeezed fruit juices. Trully recommendable hotel.
