Guennewig Hotel Bristol
Ranked #36 of 79 Hotels in Bonn
Reviewed June 12, 2011

Walking distance to the train station (and therefore all the buses too). The rooms were very clean. The front desk was very helpful. There was free internet on the lobby computer. The price was very reasonable. The only possible downside is that with the windows open you could hear the trains (but otherwise it was very quiet--not a party neighborhood). It might be better if you get a room at the back of the hotel to avoid train noise. It was walking distance to the market square in the town centre, and to the Rhine. I would stay here again.

My room on the 4th floor looked as if no single refurbishment was done for 20 years. It smelt awful (like always with very old carpets). Opening windows was not an option since the noisy station is opposite. Service was OK, but not specially friendly. This is really overpriced for this kind of standard and I wonder how it can be a 4-star hotel. Location is pretty central though.

Got a "last minute" deal on a very nice non-smoking, king-sized bed, "quiet" room at the Gunnewig. The staff were outstanding: helpful, nice, and always available. The hotel felt new, well appointed without being ostentatious, very clean. Bathroom was a mix between European and American. Big, but w/bidet, towel warmers. Only problem (minor) was the bed. Because I asked for a King (other choice was "double" which one never knows what one will get in Europe) and so we got essentially a combined twin set. Sadly, they did not have the gap covered, so "snuggling" was a bit difficult. Also, the mattresses were rather harder than I like, but we slept great, so it wasn't a huge issue. The other odd thing was the couch & chair in the room were miniature. Like for kids, rather than for adults. But we weren't in the room much, and they weren't uncomfortable, just smaller than normal. We got a great deal on the room, and enjoyed our trip, and I would definitely recommend the hotel, and stay there again, especially if I could get the fantastic price we got.

Stayed here for a conference and thought it was a comfortable but expensive hotel. Due to a group rate breakfast was thankfully included or else it was very expensive to eat there. The lobby surpringly allows smoking. This is probably the only hotel I have been to in a long time that permits smoking in a public place. Hotel staff are a mix bag of people. Some friendly and some stiff. It is a short walk from the main station which is good. If I had to stay here on my own, I would chose a more economical hotel.

Business trip lasting a long weekend .. upon arrival day i could check in sooner than 3pm which helped me a great deal. Carpark usually has a day-fare, but since i didn't park my car longer than several hours (sleeping) i thought paying a full day's fare wasn't the thing .. i was offered a free parking ticket for the weekend due to the purpose of my trip, awesome service, this shows that they are there for the customer =)

The bar has excellent service and choice of beverages, same goes for the breakfast, diverse and very fulfilling.

After a long day/night working, coming back to the hotel, you are welcomed with a relaxing atmosphere, just the thing you want.

The hotel is in easy walking distance of the Hauptbahnhof (main station) and there is a tram stop right outside the front door of the hotel (number 62 and 65) The hotel itself is good, the rooms are of a good size and include a couple of sofas. The room was also quiet considering it's proximity to the train station. The staff were friendly in a German manner (i.e. friendly but not overly familiar) There is also a pool and a sauna in the hotel, although I didn't make use of either of them.

While on a temporary assignment for my company, the Bristol served as home for 5 weeks until we got an apartment. As memory serves me, this was once a 4 star hotel and I can easily see why. The staff was very attentive and polite. Housekeeping was efficient. My favorite memory of our stay there was the food (from breakfast to dinner) which was delicious. I was never much of a coffee drinker but the coffee that was served every morning made me a convert. Though the dinners were a bit on the high side, the meal itself made you forget about the cost. I made a few friends while staying there (Mr. Goerker and Qasam) as well as Volker who worked the front desk. By the way, most of the staff that we dealt with spoke excellent English so communications were never a problem. All in all I would say that if you need a nice place to stay while touring the Bonn/Koln area , the Bristol will satisfy you.
