    « Mixed experience »

    I had a mixed experience at this hotel. After checking in, I recieved a room on the fourth floor. It had a very modern and new interior but after I had closed the window, I soon noticed an increasingly strong smell. The smell got so strong that I reported it to the front desk but staff couldn't give me a different room that late at night although promised to tell it to housekeeping on the next day. However, I felt during the night that my asthma (I'm allergic to mould) got much worse and I had to take my emergency spray. Thank goodness, the new staff in the morning was most helpful and considerate and gave me a different room on a different floor. Apparently, there had been water damage on the 4th floor and I think that caused the smell and my asthma - which is triggered by mould. From now on, my stay was pleasant, breakfast was excellent and the location of the hotel very good.

    « Good shower, decent breakfast »

    The food selection and coffee at breakfast are particularly good for the standard of hotel. Warm scrambled eggs, plenty of fresh unprocessed meats and a brilliant coffee machine for making freshly ground cappuccino or café creme. The shower was powerful and held its temperature well, I find this to be a rare occurrence in German 3* Hotels. The bathroom (Room 337) was very small however I wasn't struggling for space when using the toilet or shower. The bed was comfy and firm enough for a great sleep. The radiators work very well and the TV has a good signal with the obligatory BBC World. One of the best things about the room was the sheer number of power outlets. I counted 8 free sockets, there were more still, these were used for the TV and lamp and such but 8 FREE for charging my laptop, tablet, phone, portable charger and portable speaker. ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT!! One thing which was a bit of let down was the lack of bar/ice/drinks facilities when I arrived at the hotel. Granted it was after 11pm, but still before midnight. The night porter provided me with great directions (and a free map) to the nearest gas station and some advice on where I might be able to go and drink a beer at a local bar but I was unsuccessful. He said he didn't have access to the bar/restaurant to even fetch me some ice so I could have a drink in my room. This however, was a minor setback in an otherwise satisfying visit. I'd definitely stay here again.

    « Comfy for long stays »

    I was "put up" in this hotel as part of a week-long conference. The building was undergoing renovations during my stayed. I was gone most of the daytime, but when I was in the hotel and the construction crew was working they did a good job of keeping the mess contained and staying quiet. This hotel is very close to the city center, campus, and the train station. This means that the streets can get a bit loud. I had a room that faced a parking lot in the back of the building so my room was very quiet. The hotel it self was very quiet my entire stay. Others in my group, however, had rooms facing the street and had to deal with loud soccer fans into the wee hours of the morning. So I would recommend avoiding rooms with a street view. I stayed in one of their recently updated rooms. It was very modern (think Ikea) and clean. The bed was firm, but comfortable, which I love. My room had a small balcony and an entry way that separated the bathroom and the main room. There were no chairs or hooks or anything in the entryway, so I am not sure how I was intended to utilize this space. The bathroom was functional, but extremely small. I am an average sized adult and I had difficulty getting in and out of the shower because there wasn't a lot of room for the shower doors AND my body. Breakfast was excellent. I think you have to pay extra to add the breakfast buffet to your stay and while I don't know the price I would highly recommend it simply based on the quality. There is a huge selection of food, coffee on every table, and a large dining room that can accommodate big groups. The staff was very nice and spoke very good English, which was helpful because my German is terrible. The biggest downside was that some of the external features did not match the updated room. The elevator looked and felt like it might give out at any moment. The hallways were a bit dingy and there was a large construction dumpster right outside the main entrance. I imagine these issues will be short lived. The hotel has WiFi, but it is terrible during high traffic times. If you are traveling internationally and relying on the WiFi for communication you may be disappointed. I often had to wait until around 11pm or midnight to get a decent connection. Another thing to be aware of is that there are smoking and non-smoking sections to this hotel. However, you can smell the cigarette smoke in the non-smoking sections as well. My room did not smell, but my hallway did. Finally I would highly recommend getting a cab from the train station. I chose to walk to save money (I was told cab fare was high), but I think it might have ended up being worth it. The hotel is about a 25-30 minute walk from the train station, but it is cobblestone sidewalks the entire way and the sidewalks are pretty dirty (it is a city after all). If you are pulling rolling luggage behind you this is a major pain in the rear. It is especially daunting after a whole day of plane and train travel. But if you really want to save on the cab fare it is totally walkable.
