Althoff Hotel Fuerstenhof Celle

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 July 2014

This is our second stay at Althoff Hotel in three months. We planned our route so we were able to stay at this hotel again, and just as we expected the second stay was just as superb as the first stay. The hotel is located within 2 minutes walk from the old part of town, and a very nice park. Parking facilities are excellent, and there is even an underground parking if you wish to use that. We just parked on the hotel's own parking lot just in front of the hotel. The room we got faced the court yard and was very clean, nice comfortable beds and a very nice bathroom. Everything from A/C, TV and internet worked fine. This time we also had time to use the swimming pool and sauna. The breakfast (which is not included in the room rate), was excellent, and probably the best breakfast buffet I have had. I can sincerely recommend this hotel, and whenever we are in the area again, we will definitely stay there again.

What a disappointment this hotel was - guided by other reviews we chose this hotel for an overnight gourmet break. The hotel itself and restaurant were superb, but the rooms were at best 3 star standard - with ting shower and bathroom and terribly uncomfortable beds. Free parking was advertised, but was fully taken up by restaurant users when we arrived, and we had to pay for underground parking at EUR14 - this hotel should not advertise free parking, as it cannot be generally available with only around 15 free spaces and many more rooms.
However our meal at the Endtenfang Restaurant, while expensive at EUR500 for 2, was one of the best culinary experiences we have had.

Room Tip: I assume rooms in the older part of the hotel are better than the "newer(1970s) wing - but real...

7 of us stayed here visiting relatives. Hotel room was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Hotel had a traditional luxury feel with attentive staff and superb efficiency. Fabulous breakfast. Loved the pool which was available for early or late swim. Would definitely stay again. Close to Celle old town with plenty of restaurants who catered for our large party. Would stay again without a doubt.

I have stayed twice at Fürstenhof, Celle. Both stays were good. The first was in the wintertime, and the heater struggled to keep my room comfortably warm at night, but not a big problem. They did not offer free WiFi at any of my stays, but I believe that has changed now. The lounge is very cosy and the restaurants were excellent. They have a spa pool in the basement and a basic gym with a treadmill and a cross trainer but no weights. Be aware that Celle can get quite cold in the wintertime. I experienced outside temperatures down to -20 C in February. Celle is a very nice town, only one out of two German cities that were not bombed during WWII, so the architecture is traditional and authentic.

If you are staying in Celle this is the place to be. it is centrally located, quick walk to the old town with many restaurants and cafes. The service is excellent and people friendly. i like this place because of its charm and small size. the restaurant on site is pretty good full service affair. Temperature control and ventilation in the rooms are minimal, and the beds are small with basic bedding. Best to call for the pillow menu options as the basic one is not much of any support. Needs a makeover but still my favorite.

The hotel is beautiful, richly decorated (even not my taste, I liked it) - the swimming pool was nice with not too hot water, clean overall, beds were good and rooms very nice, spacious (the shower in the bath was surprisingly bad-function), very nice and fresh breakfast.
Even though a dinner for the staff was taking place that evening and the restaurants at the hotel were closed, 2 of the staff waited most kindly on us and served us delicious food and wine. The stay was the luxurious as we had dreamt of.

Indeed a miserable stay. Old & tiny rooms in an ugly 30 years old building. Hotel is in a desperate need of renovation. Italian restaurant was also not as good as expected. Price of more than EUR 200,00 per night is ridigulous.
