Breakfast was very good

Noise, the walls were paper thin and guests were noisy until 1 AM. Staff during overnight did not know how to check me out and get me a taxi. Had to run out to the street myself at 3 AM

Staff were friendly and polite. Breakfast was excellent as expected almost everywhere in Germany. Best hotel breakfasts in the world!

The recipient in the shower was not filled with soap/shampoo.

Good location. Quiet rooms

Despite having a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor, this hotel lacks mechanical ventilation and smells of cigarette smoke everywhere.
