“Bizarre!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Somebody once had the great idea to design and build a hotel, (in this case 'sleeping haus'), where no humans were required to cater for the guests - this is the City Inn. In it's facilities it reminded me of the overnight ferry from Hull to Europoort; cramped cabins, easy-clean loo's and showers and vending machines which serve your basic needs. Quite a way out of the city, so no evening stroll to a nice restaurant is as possible relief from the place. Gliders on the airstrip just over the road, though. If you are travelling across Germany on the E30, there are better places to stop. Shame, we liked Magdeburg.

Room Tip: If you're a single occupant, you'll have enough room to open your bag, lie down and get some...

Reviewed 25 June 2013

I understand this is a budget hotel but for the price we paid compared with other hotels in Germany it's very overpriced. This hotel is so bad we paid for two nights but could only manage to stay for one. The bed was so uncomfortable it honesty would have been better to sleep on the floor or in the car, and the room was so small it was difficult just to get our bags into the room,it was nearly an impossible challenge to open them. The shower ,toilet and bed are all in the one room no walls or doors separate them. So after we woke feeling sore and tired we went down stairs for our 5€ breakfast , my expectations were already low but what we found there was a new level of bad for me. A few bread buns and salami slices both looking completely not appetising. We really could not get out of this hotel fast enough, and luckily we had a car because the location here is close to nothing and in what I would describe as an industrial area ..... This is really a terrible hotel, avoid

I stayed on a business trip and was delayed so I selected by virtue of location only - and I was lucky: The hotel (in the throes of revamping and renovating; they got 18 rooms done I believe) had excellent new small single rooms with shower and toilet en suite, a new large TV screen. Friendly, though non-german speaking staff.

Room Tip: Madgeburg on the Elbe is great meadieval city! Aks for a room on the right side (coming in) from 10...
