a) I expect a working WLAN or at least access to a LAN, nothing of the sort is working here. Paid for premium access and still only got a decent connection in the lobby, but we are talking about extremely low speeds. It's a business hotel, so I need to work on my companies servers and send and receive mails. Took ages to do so.
b) ATTENTION: The windows are obviously coated with some material that prevents mobile access. I have T-Mobile AND o2 and neither had more than GSM or EDGE. And we are talking city center here, not the end of the world!
c) Breakfast was average. relatively small breakfast room if the hotel is full (which was the case). How about a freshly squeezed juice? How about a friendly and attentive waiter during breakfast? Or at least friendly???
d) Averagely friendly receptionists (check-in was ok, check out not so much). Wouldn't call them rude, but simply a bit stressed out. And we are talking 220€/night during trade fair season, so not exactly value for money. But then again it's just 4 stars.
e) rooms: well kind of ok. not too modern. Internet and phone reception is the biggest issue. and today completely unacceptable!!! I mean no free internet would be a no go, but no smartphone access due to some architectural issue is 100% unacceptable.
Would I come back: my company is right next door, so out of pure convenience I might have to, but will definitely try something else next time...
