    Superb

    Good for price, airy, unadorned but clean walls. Usual German fine breakfast. Within walking distance of Dom & city centre, with shopping streets en route, & also well served by public transport and taxis. The featured free bike is well maintained but small frame and of a traditional style that non Germans might find awkward.

    Superb

    The location, the cleanliness, the breakfast and the value.

    Need to leave key at desk and be buzzed in late at night.

    Very good

    It was just what we were expecting, a nice hotel within walking distance (25min) to the Dom (there is also a U-bahn station 1 min away), clean and tidy.

    Superb

    Really nice hotel, close to city center. Quite good price with breakfast included. Close to restaurants and shopping area

    There could be a possibility to make tea/coffee in the room The hotel doesnt have its own parking, be prepered to use city parking at superk market (payable)

    Superb

    Cleanliness and staff apologising when they realised their mistakes though they had problem speaking English. Well done

    Lack of meals and breakfast should be started a bit ealry to accommodate visitors going for confereances starting as early as 0900hrs. breakfast is at 0800hrs and have to eat in a hurry in order to get to the rtain station and go to the converance venue. they should do the same thing for all their customers regardless i.e regards payment. some customers pay when they check in and some pay as they do booking resulting in confusion of being asked to pay twice. an elctric kettle in the room will be great considering that they dont offer any meals except breakfast

    Exceptional

    Very clean, comfortable, staff was friendly, breakfast was quite good (especially the times, Saturday until 12)

    No complaints, really, except that they closed off former balconies and just made windows.
