Having read multiple reviews prior to making my reservation, I was well aware of what I was getting when I booked my room at Hotel Blauer Bock, and my experience met my expectations. This is definitely a "no frills" place. Some rooms offer private toilets and showers, but you will pay more for this luxury. My room had its own toilet, but the shower was shared with about 30 other rooms and was located one floor above mine... actually, it was almost directly over my head, so I could hear people showering all night. There was also construction going on outside, which made a bit of a racket, and the walls are pretty thin, but I wasn't disturbed too much by noise.
The accommodations were minimal, but the room was warm, clean, and neat. The staff were friendly, but I didn't put them to the test with any special requests. The best parts about this hotel were as follows: 1) The price of the room includes an excellent buffet breakfast, 2) The location is very convenient, pretty much directly next to the Victualienmarkt, 3) 24hr desk service; you can check in 24hrs a day, and they hold your key for you at the front desk when you go out so you don't have to worry about losing it somewhere, 4) There's a very nice little closet next to the front desk where you can stash bags if you want to check out earlier and come back later in the day to pick them up (checkout time is 11am).
If you're using the shared bathroom, consider bringing your own robe. It will cost you 5 euro to rent one at the front desk. Also, consider bringing your own hair dryer, as my room did not have one.
