We primarily choose this hotel because of the short distances to sights and city center. We went in December to check out the Christmas markets. The hotel is conveniently located in a calm area with only one-way alleys surrounding it, but it’s only around 400 m to two metro stations and even shorter distance to the tram stop. There is also a supermarket a couple of hundred meters away.
The check-in was swift and friendly with clear signs on the desk for the check-in and check-out counter respectively. Overall, everyone of the staff we met was kind and helpful.
Our room was located on the fourth floor and there’s a normal sized elevator and a wide staircase if you’d like to walk up. Our double room was of very good size and good planned. There was a big working desk and a mini-bar with a TV on top. The TV was an old flat 15-17” screen in 4:3 format which means that today’s widescreen broadcasts are just a band in the middle. Many channels, mainly in German but also CNN and some Italian channels. A kettle was provided and some different teas and coffees and a bottle of water. Wine glasses, mugs and regular glasses were available. The bed was very good. The WiFi worked well but had no security at all. You could just log on and surf without entering any codes. Be careful so you don’t compromise your data!
There was a huge closet with built-in lights (great idea!) and the safety deposit box was in the middle in perfect height for handling. In many hotels the deposit boxes are too high or too low or behind other doors etc, but not here! There is also an electrical outlet in the box which means you can charge batteries in there. The box is locked and unlocked with a code or your credit card (no charge).
The bathroom was good sized and clean with good spaces to put your personal belongings. The bathtub was equipped with a small glass door that should keep the shower splashing to a minimum but really, that doesn't work. If you use the shower, the floor will get wet. Not a huge problem though. Water pressure and temperature was very good.
The breakfast was amazing and fresh and the staff there was so kind and helpful! Loved it!
* Electrical outlets! Despite the good idea to have one in the deposit box, how hard can it be to provide some extras in the room? We had to remove lamp cords to get all phones and laptops charged.
* An old earplug found under the bed. Not so nice.
* The rooms was probably renovated around 10 years ago and will need an update in the next few years. Everything was working as it should so this wasn't a big issue at all.
We would gladly come back and stay here again! One thing though: I don’t know if the rooms have AC or not so you might want to check that before you book a room in the summer.
