Walking into the Alstadt you feel like you've landed in a back-street youth hostel. The street floor door leads you into a dimly-lit corridor with one tiny sign "Hotel Alstadt Reception floor 2" . Every day coming or leaving , there was a confused customer looking about with bleary eyes and suitcases until someone would say " Hotel reception is up one floor"
The recpetion are is very underwelming. An outcove with a high desk, no lobby to speak of but behind a HEAVY set of doors an assortment of cool parlours and breakfast rooms are hidden. The art and lighting is FABULOUS, our suite was the most unique loft-like room we ever rented, and the breakfasts are lovely.
Downside...the bathroom. Crazy weird toilets, European tub with 1/4 door insuring a daily flood and a treacherous step in and out of the bath. NO SOAP BARS????? Just one liquid soap to be shuttled between the sink and shower...absolutely no counter space for cosmetics...DID LOOK COOL though.
Neighborhood- Not crazy about the uber quiet heavily garffittied streets. Most store fronts were shuttered or closed, a few (but not a ton) of restaurants withing a few blocks. NO RESTAURANT or food besides breakfast, no room service (husband was sick one night and I had to forage for something to go for him in the neighborhood)
Great staff! Enjoyed immensely, but would not return due to kinda depressed location
