Maritim Hotel Magdeburg
Ranked #1 of 23 Hotels in Magdeburg
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The Maritim is located in the centre of Magdeburg. The old town is just a short walk away, and the immediate area has a good range of bars and restaurants. I'd suggest avoiding the area close to the railway which seemed to be a hang out for drunks.

Rooms were spacious and clean. Space is obviously not at a premium here as the rooms are located either side of a massive atrium. When I stayed the atrium was full of tables set with linnen and cups - as if there was some kind of conference, but there wasn't any sign of anyone attending a conference. It spoiled the appearance of a very impressive space.

Food in the restaurant was good, although the menu was a bit limited. The service was a bit formal for my taste but effiicent enough. The breakfast chioce was huge and probably the best buffet breakfast I've seen in Germany. It's definitely worth paying the extra for.

Wired internet was chargeable (as decribed so fair enough!) but you couln't charge it to the room and had to register a credit card. The hotel does offer 30 minutes free internet per day so you can get your essentials done, but dont expect to entertain yourself.

The bar as very large. I made the mistake of sitting at the bar rather than at a table and got approached by a hooker. I suppose this goes with the territory, but this is actually the first time its happended to me. She was definitely low end and I left early to get away because she wasn't taking my disinterest seriously enmough to leave me alone.

Reviewed 27 August 2013

Just returned from the Maritim Hotel in Magdeburg for the annual Eurofurence convention, I found the hotel to be overall very pleasing, very early 90's in design and decoration, which personally I liked. The main hotel lobby is vast and very impressive, the high atrium in the lobby made the hotel feel very big and inviting. The convention spaces of which there are a few! are also very impressive and very nice, the hotel sound proofing is amazing! if you have a disco going on in the main conference hall you cant hear it outside or in the rooms!

The rooms are very comfortable and have everything you need, beds where very good, a few more pillows would have been nice though, a nice to have a English television channel, the bathroom was off a good standard, but the sink did have the oddest red stain across it.

For access to local transport and the city it is also a very good hotel being only 200 metres from the railway station and the local tram network, also there are two nearby shopping centres that offer a wide selection of different eating places and shops.

I would recommend this hotel to most thinking of a place to stay in Magdeburg or in need of some convention space, sadly Eurofurence wont be returning to Magdeburg next year so I wont be able to experience the hotel again.

Room Tip: Try for a room that faces the back or front

My wisit to Maritim in Magdeburg was work related, but I stayed one night longer with my husband, so I think, I felt the difference when beeing somewhere work related or privat.
The hotel ist nice, tha staff is helpful, it was very clean and the breakfast great. Which is
all you need. The thing is, that if you're planing a seminar there it's perfect, but if you're just visiting Magdeburg, I'm not really sure, that this hotel is right for you. It's as all the other chain hotels with
conferenc capacity for 5000 people or so - a bit of sterile, or nor personal at all.
The train station is only 5 min. on foot from the hotel, so that is very practical. Our room was on the 5 or 6 floor, and it had a somewhat nice view, but the hotel was really
loud due the evening shows for the employes of Tupperware Germany.
For me and my husband it was a bit unpresonal and for 100 euros youl'll find in Magdeburg
something smaller , probably with no spa, but nicer.
Hope this helps.

This hotel is centrally located in Magdeburg, just a few blocks away from the Elbe river and the large cathedral. There is a large parking garage directly underneath the hotel. The rooms are comfortable, but without any extra frills. The breakfast buffet was excellent. All-in-all a very good choice if you need to spend a night in Magdeburg.

I had a one night stay in this hotel. Interiors in main area are magnificent. Rooms are clean, average to small in size. Beds comfortable. The breakfastbuffet has everything you could ask for plus some local specialties.
BIG downside - NO free WIFI...Jeez, what is this? A developing country?

Stayed one night with family. Enjoyed the clean and modern facilities. Pool good - if a little chilly, but didn't phase our 2 year old.

Some restaurants on the hotel doorstep, with others a 5 minute walk away towards the train station. However, nothing of cultural excitment in the local area.

Seemed to be popular for coach trips and convenience. Felt more like a conference hotel.

Breakfast very good and varied.

Negative would be the sometimes long wait for a lift.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. We are pleased to hear that you liked our hotel. As you mentioned we are situated within walking distance from the rail station but also from the main attractions Magdeburg has to offer. The cathedral is 5 minutes from the hotel and the Hundertwasser Haus is situated within 2 minutes but also the Hasselbachplatz with lots of bars and restuarants to enjoy a nice evening out is not more than 10 minutes away.
Mainly we are a conference hotel but we also gladly welcome individual travellers.
As to our elevators, we have 4 of them in our hotel so if they are all in use it might take a while before they arrive. We hope you did not have to much inconvenience due to the waiting.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our breakfast and hope to see you soon again at the MARITIM Hotel Magdeburg.

Kind regards,
Matthias Nawroth
Deputy Director
