“In desperate need of an ‘update’ to stay/be a 4 star hotel”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We booked this hotel true booking.com during our round trip in Germany, based on the information and pictures on the website. However, the ‘real thing’ looked just a bit less attractive. The hotel is situated in a less attractive business area. At first glance the room looked ok, but soon we found out the bed was in desperate need of a few new matrasses. Although the room has all the appropriate conveniences of a 4-star hotel, the problem is that these are not very luxurious anymore! For instance, the radio in our room for sure was very modern (although I guess this was somewhere around 1974). There were lots of minor details (no pricelist for the minibar, the hotel safe not working, TV-set much too small for the room), which made our stay less enjoyable. The fact that the hotel reception closes at 10.00 pm, apparently means that there is no hotel surveillance during the night. For some hotel guests, this was apparently an excuse to come barging in at 4.30 am making a lot of noise in the hotel corridor! The rather good breakfast buffet made up for some of the inconvenience of the hotel room, but certainly not all of them!

Room Tip: ask for a room as far away as possible from the night entrance

We were welcomed by efficient reception staff. Our room was clean and felt very fresh. It had a kitchenette and minibar/fridge. Bathroom was clean. Breakfast was OK. Easy to get to the centre of Gottingen; bus stops outside hotel and it takes about 10 minutes. Would definitely stay here again if we returned to Gottingen.

Room Tip: Excellent chinese restaurant next door. Buffet dinner costs 14 euros.

Reviewed October 26, 2007

This is a business hotel close to the Autobahn, on the main street leading to the Altstadt. It was located about 2 km from the Altstadt.

The hotel was spartan and no-nonsense in terms of decor. The room was quite large and it had a small kitchenette. The furniture and carpetting seemed a dated, and for some reason the wall beside my single bed was not clean. The rest of the room was quite clean, so I'm not sure if the wall was just accidentally overlooked by the housekeeper. The bathroom was a little small and dark, but it was clean.

The breakfast was surprisingly good, with very fresh breads and pastries, and a nice selection of meats and cheeses.

A triple room cost roughly 130 Euros.
