“One of the BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

I rarely write a review this complimentary about a hotel in Germany near the main train station, but the Hotel Kronprinz deserves it. It is a grand hotel with high ceilings in the room. Very comfortable, immaculately clean and friendly staff. There is free WIFI in the rooms, an excellent buffet breakfast in a very bright, cheerful breakfast room and CNN channel on the German cable program. The best of all is that you are in the heart of the St. Georg district, directly across from the Hauptbahnhof and near all the main Sbahn and Ubhan trains. I will make every effort to stay here again in the future. One item to note is that security here is obviously very important. There are in room safes and the front desk does not give you your key after a return to the hotel without some type of identification. High recommend!!

Room Tip: All rooms are large and spacious. While the rooms on the front can be noisy, the windows are double...

We though the room was spacious and it had nice modern design compared to other hotels we stayed at in Germany. The location was good and the price was reasonable and breakfast was ok. The only thing we did not enjoy about our stay was the one member of staff that worked during breakfast was extremely rude and unpleasant. She mad offence comment both times we had breakfast which was rather unpleasant. Apart for that the staff was friendly.

The hotel had a good location near the main train station and was clean. The downside was the moldy smell as soon as you opened the room door and the tiny size of the room/bathroom. The hairdryer did not work and the breakfast was very average.

This smaller hotel is tucked in between two much larger ones directly across from the Hauptbanhof (main train depot). There is foot, car and bus traffic at all hours outside, and people eating and drinking at sidewalk tables right outside the door most times -- it is a bit like staying across the street from Penn Station in Manhattan, but we never felt unsafe. The location is very convenient for use of public transport; we stayed 9 nights here and every day used the U-bahn, the S-bahn, and Deutches Bahn regional trains, all just by walking out the hotel door and straight into the station. The station also is a lively shopping mall/food court and you can pick up lunch or a quick "eis" (gelato cone) as you pass through. It is about 2 minutes to the Museum for Kunst & Gewerbe and to the ZOB (bus plaza), and no more than ten minutes walk puts you on Monkbergestrasse, probably the best shopping district in Germany if not the world.

Despite the busy district, the hotel is quiet inside. The hotel facilities are spotless and well maintained. The staff is friendly and competent. The rooms are not large, but are certainly comfortable. The wireless internet is free (free!) and fast. The breakfast buffet is open at 6:30am and well-stocked. Our booking was for room with breakfast; however you should explore getting a lower price without breakfast as there are several convenient bakery stands in the Hauptbanhof.

About the only negatives one could raise about this hotel are: there is no parking other than crowded city parking garages a few blocks away; that the elevator is a bit slow; and the hotel does not have laundry service of any kind. (They refer you to a laundry center four blocks away.)

Second time in Kornprinz Hotel
1. Always ask for twin or triple room. Double room is quite small.
2. Double rooms at low floor have very small bathroom. Always ask for big bathroom. It is wonderful!!!
3. Rooms at the back side of the hotel (not to street/railway station) get for free the smell of cooking coming all the way up from kitchen next door.

The hotel was right across from the train station which proved to be it's downfall. The rooms were fine, clean and fairly roomy. The breakfast was excellent and the service was very good. Because of the extremely hot weather it was impossible to keep the windows closed at night and there were no fans available. There was a crowd of drunken people who hung out at the station drinking all day and making a nuisance of themselves. On the day we left they were vomiting on the sidewalk at nine in the morning. The old vomit and then take a slug of beer routine. It was at night that they were at their worst, making noise until the early hours. The first night the police finally showed up at 5:30AM to quiet them down. At the time of our visit the World Cup was taking place, however I don't think that was what caused the noise as I doubt these lay abouts new what was happening. They had TV's at the station during the games and certainly there was noise because of this but only the noise one would expect from jubilent fans and it would end a few hours after the game ended. No this was the noise of drunks and I suspect it is every night no matter what the occassion.
