Well, yes actually. Normally, I stop in the Mercure Hulb but being a runner, I've seen this one as I've trolled the roads. spending 3 days / week in a Boeblingen hotel, I'd like to find a suitable to take my money. So how does the B&B hotel fare ?
So that's good eh ??. Everything in the room is clinically clean.. and I mean - CLEAN. Trouble is, like much that is German, it's also sterile. The character checked out years ago, but hey-ho, you don't pay €52 for character !
Close to the S-Bahn (bring your I-Spy trains book.. it is that close)
Yes, €52 buys you a crackingly comfortable bed
Sound proof rooms
and a view over....the S-Bahn on one side and the old airfiled on the other.
Getting down to basics:-
Towels - yes
Soap in the shower - Yes
5 coathangers - yes
Place for luggage - not really
Tea and coffee in room - no (just 2 plastic cups)
Interior lights will have you reaching for the sun-cream - I had to make a shade for my bedside light - WAY TOO bright.. almost took my eye out.
Individual Aircon is a plus...but it makes a noise every now and again.
You can open the windows if you want.
Vending machine in the lobby
Not enough power sockets for me
No kettle or cup (budget)
Not much storage in the room
...and, the biggest possible downside is the PATHETIC speed of the "free" Wifi service. It is simply SHOCKING.
Remember... you do not come here for the views.. or the nightlife (the MeilenWerk is interesting but only for the first few times).. You do however come here for business.
What do business people need ? YES - Fast internet connections.
At time of typing, (22:15) this page took 11 minutes to load from Tripadvisor... it's (free) rubbish
A shock ! - for €7.5 the choice is not shabby. Not much on the hot side but still for a few £.s you cannot argue. Quality was OK but the coffee was not good... weak as gnats pee.
Good for business - close to SBahn
You are dirtier than the room
Cheap and cheerful
Flatscreen TV - small
Did I mention the poor internet ?
Tough to give a full on recommendation. The Mercure is more money but (and I cannot believe I'm saying this) in another class.
Not sure you are gonna like this.....
