If you're used to European non-chain hotels then you won't be surprised by the size of the rooms or the lack of simple services like a bell boy. If you're traveling from Africa or the Mid-East then get used to practicality and cost reduction. All this said, I would still recommend that you stay at this hotel, I felt the staff tried to take the extra step, they actually took my bags to the room, reception is open 24hrs, there is a well stocked bar fridge in the room, and most surprisingly all three of us staying at the hotel got free Internet access to the Telekom Hotspot. Many of the above isn't very common in most European hotels.
The down side is the breakfast, although all tasted very nice but the variety was really limited, but the waiters were friendly and tried to please. Rooms are clean and there is satellite TV with channels to cater for most languages.
The hotel's location is brilliant 3 min walk to the main train station and 2 min from the city center, where restaurants, coffee shops and quick bite joints are available.
Room rates were on the expensive side but we were in Bavaria for the Munich Bauma Construction Exhibition and the whole province took advantage. However, I was told that on a normal day we would have paid 60% less and on a normal weekend 70% less.
I would certainly stay there again and advise you stay there, too.
