We stayed at the Michaelis Hof Hotel for three nights. We picked the hotel because of its location.
It was a fairly cheap stay. Be advised that the reception is only manned between 7 am till noon. If you arrived outside these hours, as we did, you have to check in at an automat, where you type in your booking number and then get a key card from the machine. This key card also accesses the underground parking lot.
Also the hotel is one floor on top of a Catholic Community Center or something like that. But we never noticed anything from the lower floors.
However, we were unlucky the first night to get the probably worst room at the hotel (No. 943). No aircon, no fridge and the fact that the hotel recommended that we didn't open the windows due to small flies. So the first night's sleep was bad due to the heat.
The next morning, we made our complaint to the staff, and we were given the choice of two other rooms which both had aircon and mini-fridge.
In this case we'd like to recommend Daniela, who was very nice, helpful, understanding and a good laugh and at the same time fixed our problem with a smile. That's german service for you, thank you Daniela.
Breakfast is a croissant and a cup of tea or coffee served in the reception.
The hotel all in all is more of a hostel. Personally I prefer hotels where the reception is manned at all times.
Despite the earlier mentioned complaints the hotel is ok if you just want a place to sleep. The rooms were clean, and the staff is very friendly, helpful and polite. On the day of departure, you can use the parking lot that connects with the parking garage for free until you leave.
Our experience is that the rooms on the court side of the hotel are very quiet except for the church bells. Rooms towards the street are a bit noisy, but nothing that kept us from sleeping.
If you go, don't expect luxury, but a hotel that gives you place to sleep and rest a bit.
