We don't normally stay at these above average star hotels, but this was a case of a business set up combined with our own further two nights. And it was very worthwhile. The hotel is in a beautiful condition in a central part of town, not too far from the Marktplatz. Access to the carpark is the park behind the hotel and the parks are almost right by the hotel back door, with very easy smooth accesst. A stunning aquarium lines the entrance and there is a lift to all floors. Underneath is a 'wellness' centre (ugh - hate the wod) with 2 saunas, sun beds, massage area and 2 Jacuzzis. Public areas are extremely inviting with a library and foyer area as well as a meeting place and bar. The bedrooms are large with elegant and top quality fittings. Beds are super comfortable and a variety of lamps and lights are very useful. There is plenty of storage space for belongings, a safe and excellent quiet air-conditioning. A wide-screen TV works extremely well (especially when viewing the world cup final!) and the rooms were spotlessly clean. The breakfast was up to usual German standards and beyond with no omissions. Staff were attentive and friendly although their English was not fluent beyond the usual run of commonplace greetings. We were so glad we opted to extend our stay here and relished the extra bit of pampering, at no great cost.
On the downside, access to the hotel by car is from the rear in another street rather than the postal or physical address. Customers should be told this so they know what to put in a sat nav as the desitination. We spent quite some trying to figure out how to get there as the front of the hotel looks out into a Pedestrian Only zone. Parking and meals are also not included in the room price. The WiFi was free but was rather unreliable and difficult to connection to, with frequent disconnections.
