We stopped here on our way back to the UK from Southern Germany and just needed somewhere to break the journey. We knew that this hotel was nearer to the Messe rather than being in the centre, so were not surprised that it would have been a tram/bus ride into the City. We also wanted the parking facility available at this hotel, which we paid €19 for but was absolutely worth it for the security of the underground car park. The room was great; very spacious, clean and modern, with a massive window which formed the whole of one wall! It had electric blinds which ensured that the room was nice and dark in the morning, and it was not noisy at all. We had a pleasant view over a courtyard which was a nice touch. One thing to note though - the minibar charges if you move anything in it, which we fell foul of, though this was easily sorted out by the very helpful reception staff.
The room rate that we had was very good and the restaurant seemed to be quite good value for the pasta dishes, although we didn't eat there.
The breakfast, as seems to be the way with the Radisson Blu chain, was quite astonishing. A huge selection of very fresh food with eggs being prepared by a chef in the buffet area.
We would definitely stay here again; it's quite orientated towards the business traveller so is more on the "large and impressive" rather than "cosy" side but it doesn't suffer for this at all. Recommended!
