We chose the National because of it's location - close to the Hauptbanhof (central rail station) and near the docks along the river for the Rhine cruises.
The staff was VERY helpful - even staying late because they knew our train was arriving late due to severe thunderstorms. This made check-in MUCH more convenient - but they DO have a system for getting in "after hours" - you just have to contact them and make arrangements via email.
Being near the train station, there were plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. If we'd wanted a taxi anywhere, there were plenty to be had. For us, though, we were interested in the short (10 minute) walk to the waterfront where we picked up a day-long Rhine river cruise.
The breakfast was just as good as at the other B&Bs we'd been staying at all over Germany. The hotel really has nothing going against it. A good, convenient place to stay for a decent price.More
