This week I was on a business trip to Bonn and our travel agency booked me at this hotel.
First the good: The breakfast buffet is very good and the service is good. Most of the waiters speak english and are very helpful.
In general the employees at the hotel are very nice and mostly young, only one person in the reception was a little"stiff".
The location is good and bad, the good is that it is walking distance from the downtown going through a passage under the RR tracks, but it is located close to the central train station.
There is WiFi provided by TMobile/Telekom and you buy a 24 hrs card that cost 4.95 euros and the connections are very good. This price is a bargain compared to most hotels in Europe.
The not so good: the hotel is old and it shows in the room. I had a room that was very small and the furniture looked bad. There was dust on the surfaces but the bathroom was clean. The carpet in the room was old and worn-out.
The room faced the road and the tram goes right buy and makes noise. When I asked to move to another room the receptionist said "tram stops at night so you won't have any problem" Yes, service stops but starts again very early and the noise of the brakes was irritating. I ended up wearing earplugs both nights so I could sleep.
I bought soap at the local DM Drogerie because the bar of soap was the size of a LifeSaver and the liquid soap in the shower is not good for the skin. Fortunately DM is only a block away from the hotel so I stocked up on bottled water.
The hotel is not prepare for business travelers, there are no power sockets with easy access to plug PC etc. When I asked I was given an extension cord with multiple sockets so after crawling under the desk to plug it I was able to get power for all my devices.

We just spent 3 nights at this hotel after we got a good deal online. It's as all the others have written earlier - there hasn't been done anything with hotel in a while, but for us it worked perfectly fine. Location is very good. It's very close to the train-station and the tram stops right outside the hotel. The bus-station is also very close by. Restuarants and shops are only minutes away.

Everything at the hotel worked and our rooms were clean and had a good size. Bathroom was the same. So as long as you don't have to stay at a new, modern hotel this will cover your needs. We had breakfast included and that was good. A wide selection of hot and cold dishes, pasteries, juice, coffee - all the things we needed for a good start. The hotel was very quiet.

The only things we didn't like about this hotel is that WiFi was not included and that the hotel bar closed before 11 PM on a Saturday.

If you happen to be attending any of the many trade shows at the Messe in Cologne then Hotel Bristol is certainly a good option. It's only a 4 minute walk to the train station and about a 7 to 8 minute walk to the old part of Bonn where all the restaurants are located. The rooms are fine, nothing spectacular, they are clean and basically good enough for one to spend a few nights in them on a business trip.

As others have already commented, the property is well over due for a major overhaul and refurbishment. When and if that is ever done, then with its central location, the Bristol would be a lovely place to stay at in Bonn.

The breakfast at the hotel was quite good with ample selection and fast service.

What I loved the most about this hotel was its bar. The barman was very professional, spoke excellent English and the choice of musics (Dean Marin, Frank Sinatra...etc.) made the place feel more like an old establishment bar in an old English hotel than your average hotel bar with TVs and loud music.

Overall I was very happy to stay at the Bristol and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone of you that plans to be in Bonn for a few days.

Room Tip: Try staying at rooms that are facing the green space on the right hand side of the hotel. Those facing the front also face the tracks that lead into the train station.

This well-located, central property is a throw-back to 1950s style (but not necessarily intentionally) and urgently needs a decor overhaul. The helpful staff deserve a better venue. Breakfast, unusually for Germany, is poor, and everything reeks of genteel decay. In any other city, the Bristol would be in turn-around. It just seems Bonn is not very competitive, although it does reward both business travellers and tourists as a a compact, attractive, historic and scenic town 350,000. The Guennewig company needs to get out of the hotel business, out of this property or to wake up to contemporary expectations.

As most of the reviews have stated, this hotel is quite dated in appearance, however everything was clean. The bed was not very comfortable, but it was also not terrible. Wished WiFi was free, it costs 5€ per day. There was a larger than usual breakfast selection, but again not the best I've seen. Pool was small, but large enough to do some laps. You need to bring a towel from the room though. Location was pretty good, next to the train station in a quiet street and close to a major bus hub. Major gripe is that there are only stairs to get into the hotel and no one helped us with our heavy luggage.
