“Shabby budget hotel near main train station”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Well, okay, this is not the best hotel you ever will stay in. Well, okay, it sure won't be. It's old, shabby with ragged wall to wall carpets everywhere. There's no elevator, the staff doesn't speak very good english (some of them don't speak english at all). Front desk unattended after 8pm.

But, in some strange way, I still liked the place. After wandering up dirty stairs locking myself into my room I almost didn't dare to see how I should spend my next night. But it was fine! The rooms were clean and spacious. I got a big bathroom and even a balcony that came in very handy since I am a smoker. The beds were comfy as well. The only thing I could complain about when it comes to the rooms and sleep quality is that it was quite noisy and u could hear other guests talking and moving luggage. But it's not near streets or anything.

We were going to a gig at the city hall at night and the hotel is just outside the venue so it came in very handy for us and it took us like 3-4 minutes by foot to the main train station.

Don't choose this hotel if you want luxury or need anything extra. But you should choose this hotel if you want a cheap room close to the train station. it takes about 5-6 min with trams from the city hall to the market place down town, not bad :)

I stayed for one night in this hotel during a business trip to Warnemünde and Rostock. Don’t be put off by the slightly run down and somewhat too East Germany built of the apartment block in which this hotel is situated. Also the staircase and corridor are little inviting. But you will be positively surprised about the rooms themselves. Double rooms are spacious and very clean. Also the bathroom was extremely large, actually much larger then necessary. I had a balcony facing towards the city congress hall. Not a nice view, but it’s private and you can smoke there if you must. The hotel does not otherwise allow smoking and you will also be asked to close all windows and the door when smoking outside. Apparently they will charge a rather high fee if they get aware of smoke smell in the rooms. The rooms must have been made over recently (July 2012) since al furniture looked new, and there was a really big high definition TV instead of the cheap tiny one that some hotels seem to offer to justify writing “flat screen TV” in their info.
Apparently the hotel owners/runners are gay friendly. At least they offered two different gay magazines at the reception.
If you need food and drink after hours, there is only a rather overpriced vending machine. But just outside the door there is a huge supermarket that should be open 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday. The pretty good breakfast with a small but nice choice of food is served in a small room but is unfortunately pretty expensive, too, at 8.50€.
The location is right next to the train station, from which you can walk to the city centre in about 15min, or a bit less. The S-Bahn (local train) to the beach town of Warnemünde also takes some 15-20 minutes and leaves every 15 minutes.
After getting over the first impression the hotel is nice (but for the price of breakfast), and I would not find good reasons not to stay here.
