When you like industrial architecture, this is a very good place to stay. Sleeping in an original room where the payroll was done 50 years ago, is a great experience.

The building is of great architectural interest and has many of it's original features. Maybe an English version of it // s history could be available to read in the hotel/or rooms. The staff were friendly, tried very hard to speak English, due to my appalling German! and the food in the resturant was great. The room cost was reasonable and I liked facilities like the refrigerator stocked with drinks. They too were inexpensive and we were trusted to pay as oppose to most hotel chains that swipe your credit card on arrival. We will definately go back.

The resturant and bar were empty by 10.00pm. We would like to have relaxed by the bar with a drink and enjoyed the wonderful surroundings. Still we walked to the bar opposite and that was nice but too smoky for us!
