Three star Mercure where most Mercures I know are rated four stars. Maybe this is because there's no (bar)restaurant and no in-room coffee maker.
Although the hotel has no parking facility of its own, the Freistull Parking garage around the corner offers a clearly marked indoor access to the hotel.
Friendly staff and excellent breakfast.
during the night of Saturday 16th to Sunday 17th of July 2011, the hotel was evacuated because of a phone call claiming that a bomb was placed in the building. The hotel staff went to each room and asked guests to evacuate the hotel around 2 in the morning. they totally us, so we only were informed at 3:15 (so, should there have really been a bomb in there, we would be dead now) and when we went down the 5 floors of stairs, we couldn' t open the escape door, so we spent another 10-15 minutes going up & down the stairs. there was nobody from the hotel to guide us. finally we arrived on the street when people were told that they can safely return to their rooms, without anybody having checked whether there was really a bomb - they just assumed that it was a farce! when we asked at the reception to explain what happened they told us that they cannot reply. they also claimed that they had a list of all guests which they verified one by on, to make sure that nobody was in the building, which was an obvious lie since we knew that we were inside for more that an hour during the "dangerous time". An scandalous handling of the situation, totally irresponsible and unprofessional. we can only feel lucky that there was no real danger involved.
Stayed one night here on the way back from a car event.
The welcome at reception was OK but the lady serving was not that helpful when we enquired where the best place to park was.
The room was clean but smelt stale, but other than that was OK with good TV and all the normal additions you expect in a Hotel room.
Rather than eat in the Hotel we ate out, but did met our friends in the bar first for a drink, limited choice of drinks and no ice (apparently when the Hotel is not busy the ice machine is turned off).
Overall not bad for one night, would not want to stay for more than that however.
