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.
