“Not 4 Star”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Recently satyed at this hotel on business for two weeks
It advertises its self as 4 star but any hotel that closes its restaurant at the weekend can not be 4 stars its 3 star at best.
The beds are small and the quilts are even smaller.
The Sauna and fitness room does not open until 17.00 Hrs even at the weekend this place seems to forget about its guests over the weekend.
On the plus side the buffet bearkfast is exelent

Stayed there 19.9.12 for just one night. Pleasant staff and nice bar lounge area. Breakfast was nice with plenty choice and good service. Bedrooms are a bit tired and a little tatty, bed comfy though. Just wasn't upto scratch for the price. Handy location near train station and not too far to walk to main restaurant and bar area in Saarbrucken centre.

It is a tired hotel....more importantly the staff is tired, despite their youth. The concept of service seems to be lost on them. Yes the location is nice, until you go to bed--the proximity to the convention center is great but it means you get to hear the traffic all night; trucks making deliveries at 2 AM, drunks returning from the clubs with the bass pounding the mufflers somehow missing. The AC is an afterthought, sits in the room and doesn't seem to drown out the noise. Don't come planning to do any meaningful work online--yes there is wireless but I have had faster speeds in 3rd world countries. What you need your room cleaned? Oh that isn't my job was the response we got from the chamber maid. Bottom line: they are in close proximity to the train station, shopping walking plaza, and convention center, so ultimately they just don't care....they know that suckers like me will keep coming despite the obvious shortcomings; they don't really have to care.

Room Tip: Get a room off of the main street

Since I was there with business, I wasn't very interested in the comfort, but there it was! The hotel is in the center of the city, at one end of the pedestrian street where all the shops that count are located. The staff was kind and helpful and I left with a good impression. Rooms are not big and the whole thing looks a bit outdated, but I would return there anytime.

Stayed just for couple if nights during a business trip, the hotel is very well located, close to the rail station and the downtown with several shops and restaurants around, but the hotel itself is looking old and the services are not great either. The usual rip-offs (parking, Internet, water etc. ) plus an overpriced breakfast!
One day we stocked in the parking for more than 10 minuets just waiting for somebody to open the gripped door!
Won't stay again if given other options!
