This is certainly a good 3* in normal ratings and a tad better than Ibis. The toiletries in the room is just shampoo/shower gel, there's no tea/coffee facility, there's no iron/ironing board.
I don't think it's their fault but I find in general hotels in Germany seem to have different standard of ranking in stars than the rest of the world. I stayed in a 4* hotel in Dusseldorf only to get the same settings. I suppose they earn the ratings from the overal facilities (sauna, gym) but I wouldn't say the room quality is of four star.
On the more plus side, they have comfortable, firm bed. Very clean everywhere. The proximity to the centre and U-bahn station is really really something we appreciated as a tourist. Staff was great and friendly enough for German standard but may sound rude if you don't understand the German language/way of speaking.
On the minus side, I was here during CSD (gay pride) weekend in the summer where the city was full of celebrations & tourists. As we always got back late from going out, we were always woken up around 8-9 in the morning where the open terrace is open for breakfast. So, might worth taking some ear plugs if you're a quiet sleeper.More
