No lift. The room was so small I couldn't even have the suitcase open. Any value over 30€ is not value for money, and I had to pay 175€ the first night!!!!!!

Near the town, and friendly staff. If your looking for a 5*++ or are only used to the Ritz then you would only moan about the colour of the walls all week.

Needs a little update.

near city center

First room stank like hell, no light, no blanket for bed. Then I got another room. Really bad WIFI, no daylight in room, dirty wardrobe and mattress, no shower curtain or door - whole bathroom's under water after showering, Water tap couldn't be set to a nice temperature. Hotel and rooms seem to be built once - and have never seen maintenance.

Günstige Lage im Stadtzentrum

WLAN gibt es mit Glück nur in den Zimmern im Erdgeschoss und ´´vorn raus´´, z.T. noch Röhrenfernseher aber überall miserable Empfangsqualität, in den Waschbecken fehlen die Stöpsel im Abfuss, kein Fön im Bad

Hotel staff was really friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic.

The first room was so small, almost claustrophobic. Second one was better, but no wi-fi in the rooms. Breakfast was the poorest one I had ever have. No joghurt, no fruits, almost nothing.

Super location. Near to the Center/Dom doable by foot in 5-10 minutes. Very near to shopping area, subway, restaurant.

The hotel could use a renovation.

great location, very close to the cathedral and just around the corner from the shopping area, only a 5 minute walk to the train station. Friendly staff, especially the front desk lady at the checkin and the cleaning staff were very nice and polite. Basic but good breakfast. Good value for the money.

the room furniture is outdated and needs to be updated and replaced.
