“Fine but a little dated”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

Stayed for two nights on business. Good location with friendly check in staff. Lifts extremely small especially if you have bags. Room a little dingy with lots of wood panelling which looked a bit old fashioned. Hotel very close to city centre and restaurants etc. comfortable bed although pillows far too soft for my taste. Probably would have scored higher if price had been lower 125 Euro per night. Breakfast buffet was nice with lots of choices and staff happy to arrange cab if required although there was a taxi rank right outside.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the train station facing rooms

Definitely not a four star hotel, old and old fashioned, very small bathrooms, smelly corridors ( everytime you pass through the smoking rooms corridors), poor breakfast..
Two good things though, staff very polite and helpful and very well situated

I stayed here for a work trip. True to previous comments, the hotel is outdated. Somehow my room reminded me of the Mr Bean videos that I grew up with. But I guess being Southeast Asian, my expectations of hotels may be too high. Hardly spent time in the room, only to sleep. In summary:
- No internet (apparently wi-fi is not a European thing?) Have to buy a hotspot card which was not very reliable
- There were very few choices at breakfast (especially for muslim traveller like myself)
- It is very close to a train station. I could hear the trains from my room
- Walking distance to town centre

This was my second visit to this hotel. It is a bit outdated as mentioned by some of the other reviewers. They charge 9 euro for 24 hours of internet which is common in Europe but still ridiculas. The staff were friendly, hotel clean and a few things modernized, like a new flat panel TV in the room. Overall I would only stay here again if the location (next to the main station) calls for it. Otherwise would stay at some of the more highly rated Bonn hotels.

Room Tip: Great location next to the main train station in Bonn

The best thing about this hotel is it's service, people are extremely nice. Breakfast is excellent and rooms are quite large for European standards. Very close to central train station and city centre. Has very good restaurants less than a block away. It is a bit old and out-dated, but not run down.

Mainly chose this hotel for the location as I would have early morning train to catch.
The hotel interior and room decor is very old fashioned.
Very overpriced for the quality of the rooms.
Worst hotel of the 9 I stayed at during my trip around Germany.
Didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food.

Nice older hotel with wonderful feather comforters and super comfortable beds! Great morning breakfast buffet and attentive staff. No hair conditioner for women was not a great idea. Great location within walking distance to train station as well as city center and restaurants. tiny elevators
