“A Pleasant Rest in Hamelyn”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

My wife and I booked the Hotel Garni Forum a couple of nights prior to our arrival largely because I underestimated how long our trip to Bremen would take. The unseasonably cold weather in the area apparently proved a boon to hotel availability!

We had some difficulty at first finding the hotel: my wife, who speaks some German, asked different people first at a gas station and later at a grocery store when the street we were looking for was. No one seemed to know at first. Eventually, we talked with an older gentleman who headed us to the right street (which turned out was a block long).

The receptionist and manager at the hotel was exceptionally pleasant and served as a good guide not only to the hotel but also to the city center. The hotel itself was pleasant and nice, but by the time we walked to the town center, they were pretty much rolling up the sidewalks, so we grabbed a quick bite to eat and returned to the hotel. We really didn't get much of an opportunity to see all the rat memorabilia, but we may have been better off for it.

Our room was modern and comfortable, and in the morning, we had a good breakfast there and continue on our trip to Bremen.

We stayed at the hotel Forum, during the Hannover Messe for a longer period.
Hotel forum being a Hotel Garni, does not have a Restaurant, but there are plenty of eating places in walking distance.
The hotel is an older building, but rooms are completely renovated and are good.
Floors can be a bit squeeky but this probably goes well with the old historic cementry that lies in the back of the hotel. I don't know if it has to do with the good spirits, but all of us slept like roses there and were very well recuperated the next morning.
Breakfeast is very good and has all the heart can wish for.
So summarizing, very good place to stay if you do not want the finest of finest and want to have some spare cash left for the odd bottle of wine during dinner. Very good value for money
