- Sehr günstig - Für einige wenige Übernachtungen ausreichende Zimmerausstattung - Zentrale Lage und unweit vom Bahnhof - Rezeption lange besetzt

- Bei einem längerem Aufenthalt würden die karge Raumausstattung und die Hellhörigkeit der Räume zur Belastung. - Eine Renovierung würde dem Hotel guttun.

EUR 55 für ein Doppelzimmer ist sehr preiswert. Entsprechend wurden die tiefen Erwartungen erfüllt. Morgenessen ist gut. Zentrumsnähe sehr gut.

The room interior was very comfortable and clean. The personnel handled the various problems in a professional manner.

For some reason the hotel is not ´´Gästehaus am Karlstor´´, but ´´Hotel am Karlstor´´ and is around the corner (at a different address). Although staff assured me that there would be a personnell until 22:00, the hotel was locked and I had to telephone for a key to get to my room. At arrival I found the shower door broken/removed, leaning against the wall.
