Nice little hotel conveniently located close to the fairgrounds. We stayed for the week of Musikmesse and it was OK. The third floor without elevator is not for everyone, but I quite enjoy a little exercise. Rooms are small but tidy and OK if you do not plan on doing some morning gym or work seriously. Breakfast was plentyful and OK quality.

This is a general rant about the fact that tradeshows drive up pricing by a fctor of three or four, and besides paying our head off for a booth inside Messe, we had to pay 170 per night for a room in a two star hotel at best. Funny that the cab drive to the Maritim entrance still only cost about 7 €...

Nice owner, hospitable, helpful

Room was hot and uncomfortable, and very noisy due to ´´window´´ opening to outdoor hallway, next to kitchen and loud guests (or family members of owner) insisting on having loud conversations in front of open window late into night. No privacy as well.
