“Strange hotel with missing mod cons”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Booked in for a two night stay at this hotel and I have to say it is one of the strangest hotels that I have ever stayed in. Little direction to facilities in the hotel either from signage or hotel staff. Breakfast is an additional 17 Euros on top of the price of the room!!!!!!!! Way too expensive for a breakfast charge! No tea or coffee in the rooms either and to find out that there is no Wi Fi in the rooms is unbelievable for a hotel in this day and age most disappointing especially when travelling I need Wi Fi access. A negative experience all round.

My stay in factory hotel for three night was really pleasant, apart from the heating system which hasn't worked properly for the whole stayimg, because the first night it was broken and i was provided with a small electric heater. Other night it worked without any interruption, being a bit too hot. Apart from this trouble the hotel is absolutrly amazing. It is the reconversion of a group of buildings into hotel, bars, disco and some restaurant. Thr whole thing is really amazing. The locarion is in Munster outskirts, but it is within 20 minutes walk from city center. Walking around is perfectly safe, but there are so much things to near the hotel that it is fully satisfactory. Rooms are great. Mine was spacious, well furnished with free cabled internet access and all the amenities you would expect in a four star hotel.
Breakfast is gorgeous. The breakfast room is an high ceiling room with lots and lots food for having any kind of breakfast you like, from classical english with bacon and egg to healthy juices and youghurts.
Recommended, apart from what said above

I stayed two nights at the Factory hotel in Munster, located in a former brewery. The room was clean, large, cosy and modern with free internet access (cable, wi-fi at the reception only). The hotel also offers free parking. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Very good food at the Eat restaurant (breakfast and dinner) and the Tide bar was great. I would stay there again and I definitely recommend this hotel.

Business trip to this hotel which is modern , bright and efficient. Staff very helpful , hotel restaurant good , but the location is surrounded by a number of restaurants and bars, so plenty of opportunity for variety.Reasonable price for a modern, clean if not a little utilitarian in design.

This is a really trendy hotel about a fifteen minute walk out of the town centre. It is situated in a complex of trendy shops, cafes and restaurants set around a large pond. As we were only in Munster for the one night, we did walk into the town centre to have a look. But when we got back, it was lovely to relax with a drink in the centre courtyard.
The rooms are large and the beds comfortable. Lovely big bathroom. Really liked the 'fat boy' bean bag!
We noticed that breakfast was not included in the price of our room and that the hotel's charges were high. So we went to the little supermarket on the campus for breakfast in their cafe. It was fine and very cheap!

A bit tricky to find because GPS does not know exact address...
Warm welcome, impressioning reception area.
Very modern design, very clean room, bathroom with big shower.
Only a mini bar would be good...
Breakfast was good but very expensive....

The hotel has incredible potential, it´s very modern, stylish, nice feeling to it. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. However, it´s a 4 star hotel and has no AC, no minibar, no room service. I think there´s still room for improvement in the amenities...
