Ignore the silly comments here saying that the hotel lacks character and pertaining to the staff as "cold and unfriendly". Based on my experience, these descriptions are the exact opposite of what the Atlantic Hotel is. The staff members I had interactions with were all very helpful, friendly, and efficient. Even the bar was run by very pleasant people who stayed positive and upbeat despite the fact that the bar was heaving and ultra busy. My hotel room was great: clean, modern, and very spacious. It was also a pleasant surprise to see two bags of gummy bears on my pillows. The only thing I would suggest to management is to supply guests with an iron and ironing board in the room - then it would be perfect. :-)

Breakfast was also very satisfying, with a plethora of tea flavours, savoury and sweet dishes, fruit, yogurt, different kinds of bread, and great coffee.

Lastly, the hotel's location is very convenient: placed right across the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) and a mall. I will not hesitate to stay in this hotel again in the future. My experience was very positive.

Dear Denise,
"A great place" - thank you very much for such a good response and we promise you we will carry on like this.
Aktually we do not provide irons in the guest rooms because it's part of our service to keep it in our hands but we will think about it for the future.
We wish you a good (christmas) time and hope to see you once again.
Kind regards
Yours

I have reserved a room at this hotel for 3 nights from 8th to 11th of December. Unfortunately, I could not make the trip because of emergency health reasons. Cancelling till 6 p.m. on 8th of Dec was free of charge; however, I could cancel on 9th of Dec morning. The hotel has first told me that their policy is to charge %90 of the TOTAL amount for three nights. After many discussions, reservation manager Ms. Kunkel could not help, instead she said they are not able to lose revenue, because of the different traveling behavior of guests.

Then, I contacted Hotel Manager Mr. Blasberg, and he helped to make it %90 of 2 nights TOTAL amount, rather than 3 nights. It was good of him, thanks to him, to make discount even though the reservation manager said it is impossible.

Well, policy is policy, but generally the hotels charge one night and cancels the reservation.

Be careful and do not forget to cancel on time or do not ever have emergency case, or accept to pay a lot.

Thanks God, my reservation was for 3 nights; I cannot imagine if it was for 10 days. Actually, I asked this question to Mr. Blasberg, the Hotel Manager, but he preferred not to answer.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

nachweislich hat Herr E. nicht in unserem Hause genächtigt und er benutzt dieses Portal für seine eigenen, zweifelhaften Zwecke.
Wir möchten ergänzen, dass er diesen Schritt angedroht hat, für den Fall, dass wir nicht 100%ig in seinem Interesse handeln.
Das sind Methoden, von denen wir uns distanzieren.

Mit freundlichem Gruß aus Kiel

It's a brand new hotel that will date really badly. On the design front they've tried far too hard with, for example, big green glass panels in bathrooms that will look awful within 3 years.

The accommodation doesn't feel in any way warm, cosy or welcoming, but the big rooms do their room extremely efficiently. If you just want a business hotel it's perfect: if you're here privately it disappoints.

Breakfast was excellent, as was dinner (though again the restaurant atmosphere is bland and unwelcoming).

The staff were as cold as everything else: a perfect match for the characterless place.

Dear PeterEde7,
we are glad to know that you enjoyed your breakfast and dinner in our restaurant Pier 16 and therefore we say "Thank you".
Using insulting language towards people doing a very good job in our hospitality business should not be part of a rating - it makes a comment just trashy.
Kind regards,

We stayed one night at the hotel waiting for the boat to Oslo the next day.
The rooms are quite big and very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location excellent very clost to the harbour. We had dinner in the restaurant, and the food and the service were great. The breakfast was also top notch. In sum a very nice hotel well worth the money.

We stayed here for a weekend. We had a smokers room which did not have an ash tray which was rather annoying and is kind of weird too. The hotel is very close to the city centre, taxis, railway and harbour. The hotel seemed clean and quiet. The breakfast was very nice. Although we found the staff was a bit snobby when we asked where the cutlery would be and we just a rather looking down on us reply that it was at the table, this was before we were seated.

Dear Jonavfc85,
thanks for your response with good references and a surprising complaint.
The reason for having no ashtrays in our guest room is that we do not have any smokers guest rooms at all and smoking inside is not allowed.
We think that smoke is not in line with the aim to have a good and healthy sleep, especially for non-smoking guests following you.
Kind regards,

Adjacent to the railway station, it is within walking distance of many sights. It is modern, very clean and has a nice ambiance. My room was right on the square opposite the railway station, and I was surprised at how quiet it was at night.
The restaurant was expensive but worth the price with some very well cooked and presented food. The buffet breakfast was terrific.

Well worth your Money, if you want to stay in a modern clean hotel. It has all the Things you could want, gym, spa, good restaurant, wine cellar, good bar, parking, central location, free WiFi. What more could you want? Yes you could want a top notch breakfast, the hotel has that too. In fact the breakfast is so good that it is difficult not to overeat.
The staff is polite and efficient so I recomend this hotel despite the price. have stayed there on at least three occasions,
we will definetively go back there.
