We had originally booked the nearby Hotel Alpha for six nights. As we were dissatisfied with the Alpha (see separate review) during our stay, we intended to check out after three nights and move to a different hotel in the same neighborhood. This is how we found the Hotel Zipser, a few streets away from the Alpha. We were particularly looking for a hotel that offers affordable WiFi (the Alpha charges an exorbitant EUR 8.00 per hour), and the Zipser does offer free Internet access in all rooms and in the friendly, inviting lobby that also functions as a small cafe.
The only rooms available were a regular double-room and a somewhat more expensive, recently renovated "top floor" room. As the double room was tiny and looked worn, we took the top floor room. The room was bright and spacious with modern furniture, a large flat screen TV, and a huge bathroom with two sinks and lots of counter space.
Our only gripe was the faulty design of the (floor level) shower that completely overflowed into the bathroom during use. After we complained about the problem, the hotel attempted to fix it with some kind of ledge glued to the floor under the shower door, but the shower still overflowed and flooded the bathroom floor.
