“unique”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

This hotel is unique among others, in fact it is located inside the Grune Zitadelle, a builiding constructed by austrian architect F. Hundertwasser and it is place in the centre of the city.

The hotel is colorful and has many comforts, like the Breakfast served in your room(you can ask whatever you want), large rooms, a good bar (you get a welcome drink at your arrival), wide beds and enough space for everything.

A mention is to be done for the bathroom, designed in the classic hundertwasser design and is very large and confortable. The parking is located underground, it is not free, but it has many parking lots. The staff is very kind, in particular a girl i don't remember the name now.

if you want to go to Magdeburg, I suggest warmly this place

Room Tip: i suggest the confort room with terrace on the grune zitadelle.

Back in 2006, my sister and I visited Magdeburg with our parents. We didn't stay in this hotel, but we admired it from a distance, and promised each other that we would come back as adults and stay here.

I had high expectations for this hotel, and they were met. Staff were friendly.
The basic room was quite spacious, with a view of the Main road. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was very colourful and gorgeous!

Breakfast in the room was an additional bonus, and was very filling and delicious.

All in all, our two night stay at the ArtHotel was excellent. I would love to stay here again.

If you like the architecture of Hundertwasser or are just fed up with production line hotel rooms, then this is the place for you. The ArtHotel is situated in the fabulous Hundertwasser Grone Zitadel building which is a welcome addition to the post-war DDR brutalism of much of Magdeburg. The hotel does its best to live up to the outside, with quirky furnishings and colourful décor. You will be hard pressed to find a straight line in the whole place, and the bathrooms are little Hundertwasser gems! Staff were friendly and efficient, and breakfast is brought to you room on a trolley and there was enough to feed five or six people and it was delicious. Highly recommended.

The building from outside is truly extraordinary, I also loved the design bathroom. However, rooms themselves (at least the standard ones) are nothing special (IKEA pictures on the walls - like, for real?). Quite a soft mattress in the bed.
Breakfast in room is just heaven :). Staff is friendly and helpful. Be sure to book parking place well in advance, there are not that many parking lots in the garage below the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the atrium are quieter

This hotel is a must if you are in Magdeburg, and if you are fascinated by the architecture of Hundertwasser. Our room was large and had many nice details and was tastefully decorated. Loved the bathroom. Staff very friendly. They don´t have a breakfast room, and serves you breakfast in your room. The trolley came on time, and the food was absolutely lovely. We had a room with a separate dining table, and it was great to sit there and enjoy breakfast.

The unusual archtecture of the building that houses the hotel attracted us and we're glad we stayed here. The rooms are a little off beat, perhaps a little spartan, but comfortable. Our room faced an inner courtyard, which was fine with us because it was quiet. Our bathroom had everyhing we needed and we were amused by the stark black and white, jumbled tilework.
The hotel is very well located, within walking distnace of the train station, the cathedral, the historic town hall as well as a ver nice restaurant along the Elbe River. The price to stay here is higher than average, but worth it for this unique experience.

Room Tip: Choosing a good room is important, but sometimes service even more so. Find out when Jana Manecke w...
