    « Overrated »

    This Hotel is rated with 4 stars and the is too much. At least 3 stars are ok. The rooms are ina old foshion style, very small and dark. the breakfast is averrange. For the gym guests have to pay a fee of 6 Euro but value for Money is very good. Located at Bremen main Station you can explore the town walk. Can not recommend hotel

    « Old and noisy »

    We booked it for a wellness weekend. But it was not worth the money. Location is good but the rest is not worth the visit. The rooms are old and you can here everything you neighbour says or does. The shower is in the bathtub and the room was small and not very well maintained. The wellness area was not in the best shape. Not again! Not even for business!

    « Great Location, breakfast and facility »

    Stayed here for a half term break to visit family. Couple plus teenager. Very friendly welcome - teenager had a nice room on the 4th floor. Couple a very nice big room on the 6th floor. Very quiet. Huge baths. Clean. Only tubes of multi-wash stuff so if you prefer soap and split shampoo and bath stuff take your own (or buy from the 1 euro shop round the corner). Fabulous breakfast - 4 different juices, large selection of cold meats, cheese, fish and salad - hot bacon eggs and sausages, breads, preserves and pastries. Coffee already on the table is a nice touch and very quickly offered hot chocolate to teenager. Great location just opposite main rail station and near tram and bus stops. 10 minutes walk to the tourist area of the Town Hall etc. Definately stay again

    « All in all, nice place »

    Stayed at Zur Post for 4 nights. Called ahead, and told we would arrive 2-3 hours before check-in time, and when we came room was ready, really nice. The location is perfect, 2 minutes walk to Main train station 5 minutes to market place, and less than 10 minutes to old town. ROOM: The room was really big, with an entire sitting area, very comfy beds, and a nice bathroom; also a mini bar, with very fair prices. Only thing bad about the room was that it was a smoking room, so smelled a lot of smoke, so if booking there, make sure to say if you don´t want smoking room. Parking is quite expensive, but use parking am wall, 3 minutes walk from hotel, it´s just 7€ a day. BREAKFAST: The breakfast was good and plenty, all tasted nice, and a lot of things to choose from, just as you would expect at a 4* hotel. WELLNESS: There is a wellness area that you can use for 6 €. It was ok, but the pool was out of order, and the ice cave was not cold at all - things that would have been nice to know before paying to get in, but the didn´t tell. So, all in all, a nice hotel, would give 3.5* if possible, but due to location and big room, it´s closer to 4* than 3

    « A good room is a lottery »

    I stayed 13 nights on 5 different occasions over the previous few months. Most of the staff are pleasant, some are not so nice. "power trippers" The reviews on this site are varied because the room finishes are from bad to good, this hotel has an overall 4 star rating but this begs to be answered as to how? Some rooms are air conditioned some are refurbished. Some rooms are tiny shoe boxes with showers you bump into taps and cannot properly move. Some rooms are very comfortable with excellent beds and walk in showers with great pressure. Some rooms are stuffy and noisy if you open the window to cool down. The problem is when booking you won't be able to pick the good from the bad as few options are given on the BW web site. As a BestWestern Diamond member I choose BW for recognition and of course the points that come with membership which can be used for other stays, but here at Zur Post you're treated as just another guest. You won't always get a welcome drink and you won't always get points for your stay. Priority and the best rooms would seem to be given to those arriving on tourist busses. (This is probably not right but that's how it feels!) The breakfast is good although some times slow to be replenished when busy. Car parking is overpriced 16 euro extra per day. (It's very low so beware if you're tall) There is a gym and pool but its use also comes at an extra cost. Proximity to the train station is excellent and an easy walk. Overall this hotel is in the upper price range for Bremen and apart for its close proximity to the train station does not offer any where near the quality of other hotels I've stayed in Bremen such as the Swisshotel, Stiengenberger, Marriot Courtyard which are often comparable or better value. So you can get lucky and get a great room and wonderful service and recognition of BW loyalty or you can luck out and have one of the most uncomfortable hotel stays you remember along with indifferent rude unhelpful staff who have trouble understanding who is the customer. Will I stay here next week and recommend my colleagues do the same? Probably not! There's a better quality choice 30euro per night better value, they will charge for an excellent breakfast, 8euro for parking and I'll miss out on points but it's my choice something some of the staff at Zur Post have a struggle comprehending.

    « Convenient location, Great value »

    Location: I didn´t expect that it is very near to the HBF. Upon exiting the main station, you could already see the hotel from the right. It´s just a minute walk or two. I came via train from Hamburg so I am not that sure if it is near to the airport. I didn´t even buy any bus/tram card during my stay in Bremen as everything is accessible by feet from the hotel. With just a few minutes walk from the hotel, you are already in the Old Town and Marketplatz. There are also some restaurants around the hotel or in the main station (food stalls). Room: The room is OK-OK.. I booked a business room. it is good for 2 person and just enough space. Quite a bit small bathroom though it seems to be newly renovated. Room has also good air condition and wifi connection. Staffs are also friendly. I´ve arrived early at the hotel and the attendant immediately asked me if i want to leave my luggage while waiting for my room.

    « Had seen better times »

    First of all the location of the hotel is great. I'm the vicinity to the main station and just a footwalk from downtown and the main attractions. The check in was quick and the front staff very friendly. The rooms are ok but more on the lower end of four stars. The comfortness was ok and the breakfast buffet was good. The time I was there it was very busy but the staff managed it to service you fast. The garage of the hotel is an adventure of its kind.I have not seen a smaller place than this before. The maximum hight at one point is about 1,70 meter and when fully booked parking is tricky even with a medium sized car. The ceiling is so low that when opening your trunk you hit it.

    « Very good choise! »

    The hotel has an excellent location , especially for those traveling by train. The rooms are very confortable and the breakfast has a wide choise of options. The receptionists are friendly and meet us with a smile. The only aspect to improve is the decor of the public areas of the hotel - slightly dated.

    « Let down »

    My partner and I stayed for 2 nights as a birthday treat without kids! On arrival the hotel receptionist told us they had mistakenly put us in a smoking room, despite my specifically asking for non smoking. On inspection, the room was smoky and, as I am asthmatic, I knew I would not feel well staying there. The hotel offered us two single rooms for the first night - they told us all the hotels in the vicinity were full so we had to accept. On the second day hotel staff removed our belongings to a double room, losing some in the process, including an expensive new razor. When I complained to reception no solution was offered. I noticed a sign on a wall saying that Best Western members should receive 2 free cocktails in the hotel bar - I had to go and ask for these vouchers, which were given grudgingly. Once we had had our drinks and the bill came I offered the voucher only to be told this was only valid for a very limited selection of drinks and we had to pay for the drinks we'd had, but this was not pointed out to us before then. Breakfast was very very good. Staff attitudes were mixed, some polite and some surly.

    « Great Location »

    We booked this hotel at short notice and was not disappointed. It is so easy to get to from the airport - Tram 6 to the station and the hotel is just across the road. Not so easy on return as they were doing works to the Tram station so we had to walk and catch a connecting bus. Not the hotels fault and did not take long! The greeting upon arrival was so welcoming. We were early and our allocated rooms were not ready but they offered to see if they could find alternate rooms. We told them not to worry and left our bags with them and went off exploring for a couple of hours. All the receptions staff are so helpful both before and during our stay. Hubertus Kupiec was particularly helpful in securing a booking for us at the Ratskellar Restaurant - our German is not so good so we would have struggled. Our rooms were light and spacious and even though ours was at the front we did not find it particularly loud and that was with the windows open! The leisure centre is good but the hotel is missing a trick in not adding the charge to the cost of the room! The breakfast is to die for. There is nothing they do not provide and we were pleasantly surprised to see sparking wine available. To start the day with Bucks Fizz and Smoked Salmon was a delight. The hotel bar is an added bonus at the end of the night and the prices are very reasonable too! The staff even knew our drink order at the end of the day. Excellent customer service throughout. Thank you!

    « Nice, friendly hotel close to town »

    I stayed here for just one night recently on my long journey up into Scandinavia through Germany. Situated very close to the towns historic main train station, it is located convenient for a wander around town just a few hundred metres from the old town. We ate with the rest of our travel group in the hotel's restaurant. Although it was a fixed menu, part of our package, the meal was very nice, served efficiently, and the staff were completely unflustered. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, albeit quite warm as I couldn't fathom how to control the underfloor heating in the bathroom. My only regret was that, as we were just passing through on an overnight stop, we could not take advantage of the hotel's spa and health suite. Unlikely as it is, I wouldn't hesitate to stay there for a longer period and enjoy the town more.

    « Convenient location in Bremen »

    The Zur Post is a convenient hotel in central Bremen. It is good for the railway station and the airport using the number 6 tram. The breakfast is very good and starts at 6am. There is no restaurant for evening meals but there are plenty of independent ones nearby. It is less than 10 minutes walk to the middle of the city where there are shops and historical buildings to view. This is a decent quality hotel with good service. The only thing that I dislike is that the hotel bar is a sports bar. I would much prefer a bar with no TVs at all so I can relax with a drink or a snack.

    « Fab hotel for short break »

    I travelled with my husband for a child-free two night stay to Bremen to celebrate 20 years together. The hotel was very easy to get to from the airport - a number 6 tram took us straight there in 15 minutes - just get off at the main train station stop and it is a minutes walk from there. The staff were very helpful and friendly on check in. Due to other reviews I had requested a room at the back of the hotel as I am a light sleeper and didn't want any tram/bus/train station noise from the front of the hotel. We were given a large room with a separate office area, two fridges and a great bathroom which had a separate toilet room within it. The bed was not a double, but two singles pushed together but this didn't really bother us. The free wifi was good and allowed me to use my phone and tablet no problem. I actually slept the best I have ever slept in a hotel as we were able to open the windows at night and avoid the stuffy room scenario that i find so hard to sleep in - there was no noise to speak of! Breakfast was served between 6.30-10 and was very tasty. Lots of choice including fresh fruit salad, yogurts, quark, selection of mueslis and cereals, lots of toppings like seeds and dried fruits, five different types of bread as well as different rolls, pastries and cake. Hot food included boiled and scrambled egg, bacon and sausages and there was a good selection of cold meats, salmon, cheeses and salad. Drinks included coffee, lots of different teas, juices and even sparkling wine! Soya milk and lactose free milk was also freely available. I didn't use the gym but did use the swimming pool and jacuzzi, both of which were great. Underfloor heating made padding about a pleasure! Bath robes and slippers were provided in the room for use in the spa. Top tip - the use of leisure facilities costs 6 euros each visit, but if you sign up for a Best Western loyalty card (free to do. I got mine before I travelled through the Best Western website but i think you can also sign up at the hotel) it only cost 3 euros which I think was totally worth it. I didn't use the sauna. There was a separate 'Ladies sauna' next to the pool, which (as is normal in Germany) you must not be clothed in. The hotel cocktail bar was a nice place to hang out in before and after going put for dinner. They have a happy hour on a Thursday night between 6-10pm where all cocktails are 5.50 euros. My favourite was a French mojito, which involved chambord, rum, mint and raspberries - absolutely delicious. Bar snacks were available and cheaper than you would expect for hotel bar - 3 euros for a large basket of french fries. The location of the hotel is ideal for sightseeing. A short walk from the old town, the Schnoor district (with beautiful quirky old streets full of interesting shops), the riverside and the huge Burger (people's) park (behind the station). The hotel is also only 2 or 3 doors away from the excellent and well priced Edel Weiss restaurant, where we ate dinner the first night. I would stay there again if we came back to Bremen.

    « Good location »

    This was a nice hotel in the central of Bremen, was perfect location to see the city and very accessible to transport links, especially to and from the airport. The hotel could use a bit of updating and it would be great if the room service menu was more extensive. the spa facilities was good, but the indoor heated pool could have been "heated" and the Jacuzzi could have been much warmer. However, it was very relaxing and welcoming. I would stay at this hotel again as the location is fantastic! And the staff was very friendly! Just need to take room service tray away sooner rather than waiting for cleaners the next day.

    « Nice hotel in bremen center »

    Hotel is directly at bremen central station. It's clean,staff is friendly and rooms are perfectly fine. Wifi works without any problems. They have limited capacity in their parking but a public parking (against costs) is 5 min away. Spa area is nice but they charge you a fee...

    « Great hotel and spa »

    Everything was perfect, attentive and polite staff, tasty and plentiful breakfast, clean room, and the best of all was the spa, perfect end to the day of sightseeing, just a pity the ice cave was out of order

    Excellent, centrally located hotel, easy to find with parking. Walking distance to the historical city center. Breakfast buffet is great. Plenty of places to eat in town. Spacious rooms. with particularly comfortable beds.

    « Good value »

    Quite hotel with limited parking in garage for smaller cars. Although you must pay 6 euros more for spa access it is worth it. Easy on/off from highway. You must ask for washcloths too...I read that in another review and although it took a while for them to find washclothes, they did deliver.

    « pleasant surpise in Bremen »

    an "plenty above Best Western average" experience in a nice Room with plenty of space, free swimmingpool/sauna acces and a good breakfast for a reasonable price (i paid 92€ for a double room + 16€ for 30+ hours of in house carparking). I will repeat!

    « Ok but a bit disappointing »

    To be honest, when my company sent me the booking info regarding to this hotel I thought "I am lucky, it is a good name" however it is a really old fashion hotel with narrow rooms no really confortable. The best point was the quality and variety of breakfast and not bad location.

    The hotel is just beside the main station and there are lots of restaurants nearby. The decoration of the room was a little old but the bathroom was new and clean. There are free internet pc and coffee in the lobby, which is very thoughtful and heart-warming. The breakfast was delicious with lots of choices. Especially the sweets from the lobby cafe tastes like heaven.

    « excellent staff, nice hotel. »

    I just wanted to give a mention to one specific member of staff.. Hubectus Kupiec. when my wife and i arrived early we were told our room was ready for us, which we had not expected, we had been ready to leave our bags and go out to explore Bremen. Hubectus invited us to join Best Western loyalty program (for free) he explained all the great benefits including free upgrade. we obviously did join and had a lovely stay at the hotel. Breakfast had plenty of choice and we found everything more than satisfactory. The spa was so relaxing and pool more than adequet but as another review has mentioned it is a bit of trek about the hotel to actually get to it. Location of the hotel is great for transport to and from airport. Number 6 tram, we got two day pass for two adults for 20 Euro which you could use on all bus/trams. also just a few minutes walk to centre. The only downside is that it is across from the main train station and we found lots of men hanging around, day and night, it could feel alittle uncomfortable for young ladies.

    « Nice hotel in the center of Bremen »

    This is one of the hotels that came up in my search for Bremen and met my criteria (business trip). Budget-wise, it is one of the best choices. I was a little disappointed with the room size and location of the bed (in the corner of the room like a prison), but to be honest, don't let the looks fool you! The bed was very comfortable and the entire room was very clean -one of the cleanest I have seen-. The rooms has all you need in a compact style that really impressed me afterwards. The bathroom is nice, big and with a closed shower unit. Water was hot (although took some time to come out) with a towel heater. It has a great Gym and Spa facility including a very good swimming pool, but to get there you need a road map :) Breakfast was quite nice with plenty of varieties to choose from. WiFi connection and speed is very good. Location is excellent for Tram transportation, buses and even a train station just in front of the hotel. Plenty of restaurants (mostly fast food) around. Overall, I can say I was satisfied with this hotel, and if I could I would give it a 4.5 star rating. Some more attention at the reception desk is needed as you feel as though dealing with pure robotic official procedures.

    « Reasonable »

    The hotel is fair. The room was too tight but clean and the furniture was old. Bathroom is tight but clean. There was a sofa and an office desk very useful for business travelers. Breakfast was wonderful, comparing with the room I can say that was a great surprise. Great options of breads and cheeses. Hot and fresh options. I recommend the hotel only for businesses staying.

    « Great Location and Friendly staff »

    This hotel was in a great location, right across from the station and lots of food choices. The breakfast was well worth it and my daughter really loved the American style bacon. I had a bit of a bummer moment with the spa, as we checked in at 4ish and were checking out by 11 the next day. My daughter really wanted to swim and I was hoping we could do that with a 24 hour pass (the spa is 6 Euro per person, per day) and get two quick swims in. They would only allow that with the purchase of 2 separate day passes for each of us, so 24 Euro to let my 6 year old swim was a bit expensive to me. She was pretty bummed that we could not go swimming but rolled with it thankfully. Also, they advertise parking, however it is only suitable for smaller vehicles and mine did not fit, forcing us to park on the street.

    « After several stays, still going strong »

    I stayed at this hotel several times over the last decade, The place has been constantly improved culminating with the co-location of a state-of-the-art fitness center. I particularly like the spa-welness facilities . The location is ideal for visting the town as well for business purposes. Rooms are fine and the service is excellent
