Around 30 Euro was stolen from my room.
Owner and the staff denies everything and did nothing to make up for the loss.
Avoid this pace or you'll be robbed.

For a few Euro more you do get more value for the $ at other hotels. Granted the location is good, 1 block from the main train station. Front desk (nice people). Free internet service. The room was clean, outdated a little, TV didn't work and the portable fan didn't work. My room was located above the main street below (little noisy). I am a breakfast eater. (my favorite meal of the day) was disappointed on their breakfast selection, compared to what others have to offer.

We spent 54 euro for 2 people for 1 night.
It isn't a 3 star hotel. The room was dirty and very small (mini bathroom). The breakfast was good. The position is acceptable (near the train station).

We had booked the hotel around 10 days in advance over the internet and had received a confirmation. When we turned up at the hotel, the rooms had already been sold to someone else (definitely at a higher price). There were a couple of business exhibitions and demand for rooms was high. Everything was full. We had nowhere to go. The manager said our master card was not acceptable at German banks (by the way we had used it in Hamburg and Amsterdam), and called the bank to prove his point. The funny thing was that he seemed to be carrying out a jolly conversation at the bank when it was already 10pm at that time. He finished us off by remarking to ppl sitting around him how "unreliable" and "fraudulent" Pakistanis were and how they always had problems with their credit cards.

Just returned from a visit to several German Christmas markets and a stay at the very convenient Hotel Tourist. You just walk out the south entrance of the train station, across the street and down half a block, and you are there. I had read some really negative things about this hotel, but the price and location were right so I decided to give it a try and was very pleasantly surprised. First, the location was wonderful for us--we were traveling by train and using local transport like the u-bahn, trams and buses. This hotel was less than 5 minutes from all those. Second, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, giving us a city map and marking locations for us, giving us transportation information, etc. Third--and perhaps most important, the rooms were clean and comfortable. They were small and basic and the TV left a lot to be desired (small, remote was sporadic, and had only one channel), but the bathroom was so shiny white that it almost hurt your eyes. The room itself was clean and comfortable; I wondered if I were at the same hotel some of the posters had described!

Breakfast buffet was fine: cold meats, cheeses, bread, cereal, both scrambled and boiled eggs, beans, and juices as well as milk, tea and coffee. Everything looked appetizing and was refilled frequently. Tables were clean and invitingly set.

There was a computer for guest use, but it is not hooked to a printer. However, there were two internet cafes in the same block as the hotel.

I was delighted by the low price and good quality of this hotel. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting a clean, friendly, basic stay convenient to the train and local transportation.

I'm surprised at what other people have written about this hotel. For short term business use it's perfect. It's small and quirky. They have their own wireless network (which is free) and more importantly it's about 3 minutes walk from the Hauptbahnof (Central Station) and all major tram/bus links.

You get what you pay for - this place is EUR 60/night and for me it's ideal. For night time activities you have loads of restaurants/bars close by which is ideal if like me, you travel alone for a couple of evenings.

I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic weekend - stay well clear if that is what you are looking for. Spend some more money!
