“Good but too expensive”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

+ very clean and modern
+ fresh breakfast with big selection
+ free parking right in front of the building
+ friendly staff

- no free wifi
- location far from the city center
- our bathroom only had a glass sliding door which we couldn't lock or close all the way.
- comparatively high price considering the minus points above

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a proper bathroom, not just a small compartment with a sliding door.

g hotel is not in the center, but i could take the bus, or a taxi ( only 7 euros to the center ). so ı prefer to stay in this hotel, instead of staying in the center. very good breakfast, clean rooms, pretty lobby, and a quiet atmosphere with quality customers.

This is nice, quiet hotel away from the city center. There rooms were comfortable and functional. The staff very variable. The breakfast crew were wonder. The cleaning and front desk staff were either great or awful depending on who was on due. Our room wasn't cleaned and when we asked to have it done, they said the cleaning staff had left, so we had to wait until morning for our toilet rolls to be replaced.

We were at a conference at Christian Albrechts University -- this hotel is a nice 25 minute walk from the uni and that was very convenient. It didn't cost too much, was scrupulously clean, and fairly quiet given that it's on a busy main road. A taxi to the train station was E7.50 -- whether shared or not. There's a bus stop outside, and a friendly local-food restaurant right next door (the Posthorn). The bar and garden are good for meetings and just talking over a beer. The breakfast is huge and diverse and included in the price. In short perfect for a business trip. Only downsides: small beds, no elevator, expensive internet (but all that is quite normal in Europe).

Reviewed 23 July 2010

Room: Spacious. The bed was quite comfy. Equipped with a small round table with 2 chair, a desk with a chair, a fridge and a wardrobe. No flat screen tv (yet) though so you'll have to be content with that old style tv. :)

Bathroom: Of good size. I particularly like the glass sliding door leading to the bathroom.

Breakfast: Can't comment as we did not book a room with breakfast. There is McD 5 minutes drive away where one can have bfast.

Location: Not in town. About 10-15 minutes drive.

Other points:
- Free parking.
- If I'm not mistaken, the hotel does not offer free internet but there a computer station that a guest can use (ask at the reception).

I would recommend this hotel to a friend if he/she goes by car.

Reviewed 23 December 2009

The Ghotel in Kiel is about three (3) kilometers from the train station, but is very comfortable and affordable. My wife and I spent one night here in December 2009. The hotel was very clean. Rooms were oriented in a different configuration than I usually see for a double room, but were spacious. The hotel appears to have been a Deutsche Post hotel at one time, the Deutsche Post logo was woven into the carpet. The buffet breakfast was excellent and offered a wide variety of food items. TV channels in the room were mostly German, 2 Danish channels. No English selections in the late evening when I turned the TV on. Still, the price was very good. This appears to be mostly a business hotel. Internet service is offered by T-Mobile for a fee.

Reviewed 24 June 2009

This is definitely the best 3-star hotel we have ever stayed. The quality and the facilities of the room have rather a 4-star hotel standards. The room is tasteful decorated, large and very comfortable. And off course, it was perfectly clean. The bathroom is divided by frosted glass which looks very nice. This hotel has no lift and restaurant, this are probably the reasons that it has been rated as 3-star in stead of 4-star. So, for dinner, we decided to go to the city centre by car (it is not walking distance from hotel).

Our room looks into the inner garden, so it was very quiet. We have slept very well. On the second day, we were surprised by the extensive breakfast. They serve things like eggs, sausage, smoked salmon, tomatoes with mozzarella etc, which we usually do not expect from a 3-star hotel. Everything was fresh, delicious and well presented. For what we paid: € 71,- per night, this hotel is certainly highly recommended for travellers by car.
