“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

The facade, foyer and location are excellent. I really liked the 1970s feel. However, the first room they gave me was substandard. Near the lift and no wifi. I had specifically requested it. They refused to move me that night with no adequate explanation. The next day I was moved into a small closet of a room with a view of the roof. It did have good wifi. Since I was working, wifi was critical, but given that I was staying several nights with a group of different colleagues, I thought it was unfair not to give me a better room. Stayed in May 2012.

The hotel is just a few steps from the train station with all the pros and cons that this implies. When you approach the hotel you notice plenty of kebap shop, and when turning the corner to the hotel there was another one right next to the entrance. That gives the whole please a little bit of a seedy appearance which however vanishes immediately when you are entering. Very friendly staff greet you and the place is in perfectly good order if a little dated in its style. Breakfeast staff on my visit was very friendly indeed and the view from the breakfeast room is excellent. In summer it must be quite an excellent experience to take breakfeast on the roof terrace. Altogether not a place I would chose for a romantic trip but perfectly fine for a business trip.

Room Tip: Fourth floor has the chance for a better view.

We liked our stay here because of the staffs. They have spoken to us on the phone before, arranging a better deal for us in having two rooms for 2 instead of what we have already booked (triple prepaid, and one not paid). On site, the reception and the buffet staff were also really helpful and polite, which pleases us since we prioritize good service out of everything. Other than that, i think there is nothing special about the hotel. You won't believe that this hotel is a 4 star hotel from the outside. Inside it was quite better, although i personally do not like the elevator for being really small and quite scary. The food was okay, and the room was nice. One thing i'd recommend anyone coming here from the station; just take the city train to get here. Taxi would take forever and cost quite some bucks.

Unfortunately, I had a rather unpleasant stay there. The location is fine next to the train station, the rooms are big enough, but the "service" personnel is not very helpful and questions were answered quite impatiently. Too bad, could be a nice place to stay in the center of Bonn. :-(

Very average services for a 4 stars hotel.
Do not expect staying in this hotel for an other reason than business.
However, the value for money is correct.
A positive point is the breakfast that you take on the upper level (level 4, if I remember well) with a nice terrasse and great view on the city.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights when I was in Bonn on business. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interior was fine. The room I satyed in (single room) was clean and the bathroom appeared newly renovated. The breakfast buffet was very enjoyable and there were lots of items to choose from. The hotel is located right across from the central station, which makes it easy to get around the city using public transport.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the side where the central station is located are much noisier, so ask for a room facin...

During our recent trip last year we had occasion to stop at the Continental though my preferred option was the Hotel Beethoven which has been torn down to be replaced by a somewhat larger venue on the shores of the Rhine. The location is excellent as it is directly in the center of town and there is a public parking lot within a few steps of the location. It should be noted that parking for the night is free but you need to check with the front desk who will clue you in what the local regulations are. Everything near the Hotel is within walking distance including a wide selection of restaurants and pubs, the Market area which should not be missed, the Cathedral and the many shopping venues. Quite near, also, is Bonn University with wide, picturesque park land and many interesting features. Bonn is really one of the prettiest cities that is accessible by walking around. The Hotel itself is comfortable and Breakfast was very good. The room was clean and quite large and, though the Hotel is quite close to the train station and other local transportation that was not noisy. Staff was friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Should all be good
