“Save some money and time travel!”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Anyone who traveled in Germany way back in the 20th century has almost certainly stayed in city hotels like this before. When you look at the signage, the furnishings and the in-room TVs you can really feel like you stepped back 20+ years! This place with never be confused with luxury, but its cleanliness and convenient location are definitely attractive. The breakfast is probably better than you have a right to expect, but as it doesn't start until 7 you might think fresh brotchen wouldn't be too much to ask. The Wifi works pretty well and is free. The walk to the Hbf is about 10 minutes, but you can reach several tram lines below the Rathaus Galerie in about half that time. The staff is generally pretty good, although unwilling or unable to speak much English. I have to give them credit, they were extremely obliging in holding a large bag for me for several days while I was out of Germany. The bottom line is that this place is well worth considering if you need an affordable place to sleep in the center of town.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pedestrian street in front of the hotel are likely to hear street cleaning (and pos...

This hotel is really good value for money. Where else can you get a city centre room with breakfast for €52? The hotel is situated in the pedestrian precinct 10-5 minutes walk from the main station. The rooms are small and in the annex you may have to climb 3 flights of stairs as I did. However, you have a bathroom and a small TV and you can buy internet access. The hotel is clean and the breakfast (included!) is more than OK. You can sit at the window and watch the people go by as you eat. Noise was no problem (but I was at the back).

For a short stay where only the basics are required this hotel is a good tip.
