“A place to stay when you come to Oldenburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

the hotel is in the center of Oldenburg, close to the shops and the restaurant places. You need no car. Its all around. The best restaurant probably is in the hotel itself. Staff is very caring
and helpful. Rooms are nicely decorated and thanks god with no carpets. In the small lobby
there were always sweets and some bottles of wine to relax, when we came back. Breakfast
choice very good.

Room Tip: rooms to the street and restaurant places are probably a bit louder...

This is the only hotel I've stayed in where you can help yourself to snacks in the lobby; candy, ice cream and a couple of bottles of wine. It was certainly nice to sit on the bed and sip a complimentary glass of chardonnay before dinner. The room itself was a good size and tastefully decorated and very clean. We overlooked the little shopping alley, having asked for a quiet room, and never heard a sound all night. We didn't have time for breakfast but did enjoy dinner in the restaurant and it was excellent. It's very small and has a simple elegance. Service was wonderful. Everything you need is within walking distance yet it's a quiet neighbourhood at night. I would happily come back.

Huge room but tiny bathroom. Could hardly mice in it. Room decor a bit tired and dull. Restaurant very good but service very slow. Free wifi. Location very central if you need to be in Oldenburg. Not much else to say.

This hotel is based in the centre of Oldenburg with the great advantage of staying in the centre of the town. Restaurant was excellent we had dinner and breakfast which were both excellent. The disadvantage is the rooms which were small and basic and for this reason alone I would not be rushing back.

Room Tip: Get a bigger room than mine

Excellent location on the main square. Pedestrian zone plus parking house a few steps away.
Great guy at the Reception desk who looks like the brother of Phil Collins and also plays the drums, by the way....!
My room (#312) --- well I guess they want to save money for floor covering. Just plain wood, no carpets at all, which means that you unlikely hear other guests walking during the night. (And there were NO elephants around - just you hear every little step!)
TV-set is from last century. Remote control rotten, you have no clue how to select channels. (see pic).
Breakfast Buffet excellent!
Bottom line: Oldenburg's best hotel, but you better be prepared to have not such a good night sleep because of the stampede above, besides and below you in other rooms!

Stayed in this hotel when I visited the city recently. Nice and modern. Clean and tidy.

Free wifi across the hotel. Good breakfast.

Location is great with the city centre right outside.

Would definitely stay here again

Great location in heart of Oldenburg. Rooms are a little disjointed with external laneways to get to some rooms. Rooms are medium size. No air con. no phone. No iron. Business shirts took 3 days to come back. resturant was excellent for dinner. gym was small but efficient. supermaket next door. beer garden across the road. laneway full of resturants around the corner. in heart of old oldenburg. no safe.

Room Tip: ask for room overlooking beer garden. ones overlooking internal shopping can be noisy
