“Ideal Location, Good Quality Accommodation”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed for one night only but very pleasant hotel, 5 minutes walk from the train station / university. Good room (123), quiet, with a nice view of the square. Breakfast room nice and airy, food simple but decent, staff polite and helpful. Can't comment on the dining room for an evening meal as I didn't use it. Whether it was worth €109 for one night however, is debatable. Less expensive at weekends I believe.

I stayed for one night on business recently. Following other trip advisor reviews I requested a higher room on the quiet side of tyhe building. I had to chase the request and ended up on the 2nd floor. This level of service needs to be improved. The room however was good, and I used room service which was very efficient and not expensive. teh front staff helped me with where to run in the mmorning and getting checked in. Charging for Wifi feels wrong as most other hotels I stay in do not charge. Breakfast and check out were good.

Room Tip: The room overlooking popplesdorf allee - very nice, but get a higher room.

Stayed here for 2 nights during business trip. Hotel had everything you required and nothing was too much trouble. Staff were polite and helpful. Food was also good. Single room had adequate space and fully air conditioned.

The Bristol is in a great location, and the staff are friendly and professional. The rooms are clean, the corridors with their trim are so much nicer than what one often finds these days. A special mention is deserved for Giacomo, the bartender. Warm and generous, he made us feel at home every evening after returning from business related dinner outings. Some things that didn't bother me too much but may be a concern for some was the size of the bed (a twin in my room, though one of my colleagues had two twins pushed together to form a "full") and the TV service is basic cable. There is no teapot or coffee maker in the room, which was annoying because room service doesn't begin until 11:00. Those who enjoy a fresh cup or three before going down to breakfast will be disappointed. The breakfast, au l'autre manche, was pretty good, especially if you get to the over easy eggs before they get cold. Good brotchen selection, and they had a fresh honeycomb you could cut a section from. All in all, worth a visit. I wavered between three and four stars, but Giacomo tipped the scale.

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 fac...
