We (my wife and I) stayed here for one week in April of 2007. The room was nice, with a small but functional bathroom. The hotel is very quaint, and offers exactly what one would expect for the price: the basic ammenities, with nothing over the top. If you are looking for a clean, friendly place to sleep, without all the bells and whistles of other higher priced hotels, than this is the place for you.
The bathroom had a toilet, sink, a stand-up shower, and one 240V outlet. The room had two windows that open up to a quiet city street, drapes that block some (but not all) of the light in the morning, an armoire for hanging clothes, two single beds pushed together to make a king, a phone, small (13") tv with cable, and a clock radio. Two chairs and a table round out the experience.
We didn't get breakfast, so I can't comment, but it sounded and smelled nice. We could sometimes hear guests in the adjoining rooms, but overall the hotel was very quiet, simple because there weren't that many guests.
The building has an elevator, and there is a night porter. We were also given keys that would open the front door to the hotel, as well as to our room. The hotel has wi-fi, and the cost is reasonable. It was about a 5 minute walk to the Dammtor station, and about a 10 minute walk to the congress center (Messe). The Grand Elysee Hotel, which costs much more per night, is within eyesight (one block east) of this hotel, so you can get your bearings (and most taxis) based on that fact.
Again, this hotel is not for those who are used to staying at the big name chains in the states (Sheraton, Embassy Suites, etc), but if you can handle a La Quinta, Holiday Inn Express, etc, than you will be OK with this one.
