I had decided to arrive 2 days before the Einsenwarenmesse in March 2014, to help set up and organize, etc (My company was participating). So I wanted to stay some place close by and inexpensive, and found this suitable.
Its a sweet little budget hotel near the Messe Station. Only a 10 Min walk to the Exhibition Grounds, which was very convenient for me. The location is also very nice as the area has a fair amount of Bars / Restaurants, etc.
The staff were very nice, as they made me make an international call (outgoing) for free. Its a very quiet hotel. Nice place to get a coffee and read a book during the day in the dining area.
PRO's - Location, cost, staff, ambience, peaceful
CON's - Room size, no elevators (if with heavy luggage), needs a small kitchen for light snacks and drinks (only chocolates and chips in vending machine).
