“VERY interesting with a few Cons”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Excellent location on the main square. Pedestrian zone plus parking house a few steps away.
Great guy at the Reception desk who looks like the brother of Phil Collins and also plays the drums, by the way....!
My room (#312) --- well I guess they want to save money for floor covering. Just plain wood, no carpets at all, which means that you unlikely hear other guests walking during the night. (And there were NO elephants around - just you hear every little step!)
TV-set is from last century. Remote control rotten, you have no clue how to select channels. (see pic).
Breakfast Buffet excellent!
Bottom line: Oldenburg's best hotel, but you better be prepared to have not such a good night sleep because of the stampede above, besides and below you in other rooms!

Stayed in this hotel when I visited the city recently. Nice and modern. Clean and tidy.

Free wifi across the hotel. Good breakfast.

Location is great with the city centre right outside.

Would definitely stay here again

Great location in heart of Oldenburg. Rooms are a little disjointed with external laneways to get to some rooms. Rooms are medium size. No air con. no phone. No iron. Business shirts took 3 days to come back. resturant was excellent for dinner. gym was small but efficient. supermaket next door. beer garden across the road. laneway full of resturants around the corner. in heart of old oldenburg. no safe.

Room Tip: ask for room overlooking beer garden. ones overlooking internal shopping can be noisy

It's a lovely, small hotel in the middle of the city. The restaurant is excellent as is the included breakfast. It's a combination of business and vacation travelers. They have delocious candies beautifully displayed for guests in the lobby and on the staircase landings.

Room Tip: rooms facing the front can be a bit noisy
