We stayed in the Radisson for five nights during the Kurt Weill festival and it was excellent from all aspects. It has changed beyond recognition since we were there in 2000 and the whole hotel is now very welcoming and well designed. The hotel is in a convenient location, two minutes' walk from the station (tip: walk through the alley across the road facing the station entrance and you're at the hotel) - and if you walk through the station the Bauhaus is very near. Parking in the hotel garage was quite expensive, though, at 12 Euros a day.
We had a large airy room with free wi-fi, the beds were very comfortable indeed and the bathroom roomy. Breakfast was excellent, with a very wide choice, and the snacks at the bar were reasonably priced and tasty - we only ate once at the restaurant, but the same applied. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, without exception. The sauna and fitness area is also very well designed, and has no less than three saunas and a whirlpool - and free, though possibly this was because it was part of our Kurt Weill Festival package. We considered it all of a high standard and excellent value for money. If I may voice a word of criticism, it would be that the outside area of the fitness centre - much appreciated as a rule, as you don't always find this in hotels - was generally frequented by smokers while we were there, and as it's a fairly small enclosed area, we came out of the sauna and found we had to breathe in clouds of cigarette smoke instead of the hoped-for fresh air. If people really feel they have to smoke in a fitness centre, and the hotel is in agreement, then OK, but not right next to the rest of us, please. Perhaps we were just unlucky, but if it would be possible to create a small outside area especially for smokers, I'm sure that would be greatly appreciated.
