Freundliches aber hilfloses Personal. Ich sollte vom Manager angerufen werden aufgrund der Maengel was leider bis heute nicht passiert ist. Aslo ist auch das Management eines unzufriedenen Kunden schlecht.

Das Hotel im Wasserturm sollte hoechsten 3 Sterne erhalten. Beispiel: extrem laute Geraeusche aus dem Wasserabfluss in meinem Badezimmer wenn der Nachbar im Zimmer Nebenan duscht oder zur Toilette geht. Das Fitnesscenter ist ein normales Hotelzimmer in die wenige Geraete egstellt wurde. Es ist gelinde gesagt wohl eher ein Scherz diese Ausstattung ein Fitnessraum zu nennen. Die Lautstaerke aufgrund des nahen Aggripinabads ist unzumutbar. Es gibt keine Beschilderung wie man zur Rezeption kommt (nichts im Lift) noch zum sog. Fitnessraum. Weiterhin war die Dusche wahrlich extrem klein. Es gab im Zimmer keinen Vordruck um diese Maengel aufzuschreiben damit das Hotel sich verbessern kann. Es ist mir ein Raetzel wie das Hotel 5 Sterne bekommen konnte!
