The hotel had two redeeming qualities. The A/C worked well and the location is really convenient. There are several nice restaurants nearby and we had wonderful crepe dessert, twice, around the corner. So back to the hotel....if you were to rate this above 2 and say that it was on any side of good, I'd say the the best place you stayed at lately is the tent city in Munich.
This hotel is bad. Some of the staff were nice but I ran into one desk clerk that was miserable most of the time. I tried to explain my problem with the access to the wifi but she was uninterested in making any effort to help. I got the feeling that she just wanted me to go away and leave her alone. The wifi did not work int the room we were assigned, 501. I received it well in the lobby but never connected in the room on my iPhone. Other than that...a light in the room was hanging off the wall, ugliest decor with orange and dirty white walls that were in need of major painting. As mentioned in other reviews the elevator is tiny. My wife took the two bags in the elevator and I walked up the 4 flights to meet her to make the trek to the 5th floor. The stairs have an old runner which is not secured and is a tripping hazard. The elevator did not level out on the 4the floor which didn't instill any confidence of a well maintained unit. While there we experienced a power failure (not the fault of the hotel). What is the fault of the hotel is the lack of safe egress from the hotel. The stairwell with the unsafe runner had emergency lights that were out. Luckily we had daylight to get down the stairs at 8 AM. If this had been some emergency without power someone would get hurt. The carpets were old and dirty. The halls were dingy and looked as if they were decorated 30 years ago. The "queen" sized bed was essentially two cots placed side by side. I could overlook the lack of any "views" from the hotel but I do expect safe and clean. This hotel
lacked all in all of these areas. We stayed at an Ibis hotel that was just as small but it was clean and well maintained and gave you the confidence that in the case of an true emergency you had a chance of making it out alive. It could be very good but the obvious lack of attention says spend your euros somewhere else.
