Front desk reception seems to be overworked and understaffed. Very friendly employees; waited about 20 minutes to check in on a Wed evening. Everything was extremely overpriced:
€20 per day for WiFi access? Come on....racket.
€23 per day to park your car
€20 breakfast worth about €7

Best thing about this hotel was location. Right on the river, close to CGN. Nice running trail on river. Bed was very comfy, decor was extremely modern.

Mediocre Hilton experience.

The hotel has some new renovations and the restaurant is solid. The staff is friendly and make you feel at home for short or longer stays. Do eat at the restaurant and try the nice cocktails at the bar.

Good hotel in the centre of Bonn. The restaurant 'Oliva' is good and the fitness room is quite well equipped. Rooms are comfortable and generous, with aircon and windows that open.

If driving to the underground car park, head for the north side of the hotel on Josefstraße.

Only minor complaint is the minibar was a bit noisy (I unplugged it).

This was the first hotel we stayed in upon our visit to Germany. The rooms are modern and clean. The location is just blocks to the old town area with great restaurants and fun shops. Only negative was the price of breakfast there. I think it was around 25 euros. Easier and cheaper to go to the local Starbucks.

Fantastic hotel in a beautiful city. Located by the river and close to the Old Town. Room is beautifully furnished, bedding is heavenly. Staff are very polite and helpful. Breakfast is of very good standard, in terms of quality and service. We really enjoyed our dinner here, highest compliment to the chef. We booked online direct, real good value for what's offered. Better than other hotel group. Will come back to stay here and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends and relatives.

The Bonn Hilton is beautiful. It appears to have been newly renovated and everything is clean and new. The hotel sits right next to the Rhine river, and my room had a great view of the river. There is a wonderful pedestrian walking area within 4 blocks of the hotel that had a lot of very nice restaurants, brew houses, and small shops. The front desk staff was very polite ad spoke perfect English. I will definitely stay here again the next time I visit Bonn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks out at the river. My room had a balcony with chairs and a table. It was g...
