I had booked this hotel for a trip to Oktoberfest, and due to my poor planning I booked late. So all the hotels near the Oktoberfest were already booked or very expensive. This one still seemed pretty pricey for being so far from the city center, but it was next to the Ubahn so I figured why not. The first night we got there, I met some friends at the bar for some drinks. The bar was full of drunk people coming from the Oktoberfest who were being loud and obnoxious. Not a problem for me. Several glasses were broken by the different groups while we were there. I mention this because of what happened next. There were three of us at the bar, and we were just enjoying our first German beers. Two other Germans came over to talk to us as they heard our English and were shared several more beers. the other groups were becoming more roudy and soon the manager came out and started yelling to keep our voices down. Unfortunately it was not directed at the two groups who were sometimes signing and had at this point broken several glasses. We were the target of the manager. He came over to us and said that the other guests were complaining about the noise. Keep in mind that we had our room on the 1st floor right above the bar. My wife was up there reading. So we told the manager sorry, and continued on talking although we felt that we were whispering. Soon enough he came back over and yelled some more, so we decided to call it a night and go outside for a smoke. No drinks, just a smoke and then a good bye to our friends who stayed at another hotel. Soon enough the manager came over and started screaming at one of my friends for being too loud. Even though he wasn't even talking, he was over to the side smoking (the reason we went outside to begin with, since he was the only smoker). The manager said he called the police on him. So I asked the manager why he called and why he was singling out him, when the people inside were being very loud. He basically said the police were on their way and we should leave. So my friend left, and once we got back inside the manager said he was sorry, but our friend was too loud. He's a very quiet guy, and I am not so not sure why he was being targeted. So that was a bad start to our stay.
So the room itself was pretty small with two twin beds placed next to each other to make a bigger bed. Typical in Europe. However the floor was pretty slick, so if I rolled over into the crack the beds split apart. Essentially my wife and I slept in two different beds. Usually when hotels combine the beds, they put queen sheets over it to keep the beds together. The beds also didn't have a top sheet, just a bottom sheet and a comforter on top that was too small for the bed.
Breakfast was good. Plenty of selection, but at 10 Euros we opted for snacks at the pasty shop next door where service was much more pleasant. At least they didn't threaten to call the police on us.
