“Decent and Simple Hotel.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Found this hotel to be a a nice decent hotel with the best part being that it was just across the road from the Bad Godesberg Railway station .The railway connects you to the major cities in the Nothern Rhine Westphalia region (Dusseldorf,Bonn ,Cologne ,etc) .

The breakfast was basic,nothing extraordinary .

It was close to the shopping district and there are a few places to roam around in the evenings and also a beautiful garden nearby.

Stayed there for a week. Room is about 2 sq.m. Bed was tiny for a 1.9 meter fella like me.
Breakfasts were meager. And the price of stay was 200 Euros a night! Not worth it, my goodness.
Just simply avoid this place unless you are a tiny unimposing immigrant from Asia...

Die Lage des Löwen ist perfekt - direkt am Bahnhof, keine 500 Meter in die Innenstadt und nahe zum Rhein. Das Zimmer war kürzlich renoviert worden, sauber und praktisch eingerichtet. Und der Service freundlich, Frühstück reichhaltig und Abends ein nettes Restaurant unter demselben Dach.

The hotel’s location is perfect: directly by the train station,less than 500 meters to the city centre and close to the river Rhine. The room had been recently refurbished, and was clean and well furnished. The service was friendly, breakfast rich and the restaurant under the same roof a nice discovery.

I've been visiting Bad Godesberg for a number of years, and stayed in many hotels here. Whilst the other reviewers mention that the hotel is tired, I think they somewhat over egg the point.

The hotel décor is a little outdated, but the service is fantastic (its family run). Breakfast is great, and its location is spot on. The rooms are nice and bright and big, if not a little like your grandmothers in the late 1990's. Beds are comfy and the shower is hot and strong (like their coffee)

The hotel is situated not far from the Rhein and there are some lovely restaurants and bars close by.

So I would advise those to stay here if they would like to be hosted in a comfortable, family run hotel and aren't particular about décor.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room not on the Ubahn side especially in summer, as the trains don't run incre...

Location is ok but the whole hotel could use an overhaul. I was booked here by the organization I was working for and I found it dreary and dull. Everything is carpeted - as in, the bed pedestal, the bedside table stand, the hallways (not the bathroom) and it has the feel of a cheesy 70s American motel. Staff is pretty good, though they will charge you for each wifi account you get (I travel with iPhone, iPad and laptop when I'm on business, and each requires its own account here). It's clean enough but I definitely wouldn't stay again.

After hunting around the town on the other side of the rail line without success for two hours (conference time apparently) we were grateful to find the Zum Lowen, with its impressive (and deceptive) old fashioned facade. having stayed in any number of cell like, soulless rooms through the Rhine valley, this was a nice change, even if the rooms are very dated. The funky bathroom tiles and the deep set windows looking out onto a leafy embassy lined street, made it better than it might have been.

The restaurant attached is good value and popular with the locals by the looks of it and the English speaking hostess could not have been more patient in explaining the idiosyncratic variants on the meat and potato based lifestyle that makes German cuisine as deservedly unheralded as it is.

Good value for the price I thought, compared to the rest of the hotels in town. Clean, slightly jaded and seen better days, but so what.

The hotel is quite old and, have to admit, shabby. The room was very cold (radiators didn't work or were not switched on) and apparently meant for young family with a slightly wider bed (intended for the parents, I assume, and definitely not very comfortabel) and another, 80 cm wide bed (I assume) for the possible child. In addition, the room was next to hotel sign, and the flashing light was somewhat annoying in the evenings. Luckily it was switched off around midnight. The bath room was very small and the trash was not emptied when we arrived.

The area is approximately 8 km from Bonn, in a very nice residential area called Bad Godesberg. There are nice forests paths, minigolf and such maybe within 15 minutes walking distance, but for sightseeing the area is not the best. However, the train station is very near (less than 5 min walk) and the tickets were not too expensive, so it wasn't very difficult to reach Bonn or Cologne.

To whom should I recommend this hotel? For budget travellers, at least. Also, if you are coming to Bonn for a conference I guess it offers fairly reasonable pricing. Albeit rather worn down, the hotel does have its charm. Just make sure you have nicer room. Something worth to mention is the breakfast, which is quite nice, and included in the room price.

Room Tip: Ask a room not next to the hotel sign!
