Wir konnten spontan unseren 10-jährigen Sohn in das reservierte Doppelzimmer mitbringen und bekamen einfach 3 Kopfkissen und Decken. Es war wohl ein behindertengerechtes Zimmer und daher etwas geräumiger. Wir mussten keinen Aufschlag zahlen!! Wir hatten zwar nur wenig Kontakt mit dem Personal, wenn war es aber nett und zuvorkommend. Auch die Lage ist zentral und ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Aktivitäten. Den Bahnhof ist auch nicht störend (Fenster zu gehabt). Wir würden wieder dort absteigen.

The free bus tickets were a wonderful gift! We traveled all over on the buses and the ferry. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean, well designed and had a great harbor view. The housekeeping staff actually left the towels if you hung them up.

The rates for Internet were high (should be free) and the bed was a bit too hard.

Very clean and centrally located. Good value for money. Functional furniture - comfortable beds though.

Breakfast seems expensive.

Centrally located in the city of Kiel, shopping arcades, department stores and harbour only a few steps from the hotel. If you leave the central railway station through the exit towards Kaistr (i.e. harbour-side) just turn right, descent the stairs and you are immediately entering the somewhat narrow and unpretentious hotel lobby. So if you arrive by train with heavy luggage the hotel is perfectly situated. If you book a room towards the quay-side (which costs a little surcharge) you will be rewarded with a great view across Kiel's ferry and cruise liner port and terminals. Whereas if you take a room towards the (cheaper) railway station side you will only end up with a dull view onto the parking deck lot and the dome/roof of the railway station. In the same building there is a big Cinemaxx movie theater which can be reached dryly within a few steps even at adverse weather conditions thanks to an arcade passage which wraps around the front of the hotel. This will make for a nice spontaneous pop-in evening entertainment. Also right at the entrance of the cinema is a snug Brazilian Restaurant ´´Cobana Rodizio´´ whose interior layout and decoration manage to conceal the large occupancy it can cater for. There you can indulge in a rich breakfast buffet for 9.50 EUR which may be an alternative to the hotel's breakfast buffet for 12 EUR. However, it may be advisable to reserve a table at the Cabana in advance since it seems to be a popular venue for a weekend breakfast with the locals as well. A nice goody is the hotel cheque card sized paperboard card that you are handed out together with the room key card and which according to its printed on text can be produced as a valid ticket for public transport of the Kiel Region (VRK) for a random amount of rides on the day of arrival and day of departure (though I haven't tried its usage myself).

The rooms lack free WLAN Internet access. If you require this (which these days often is offered for free in many other hotels) you will have to buy a sheet with access credentials for a dear 14.50 EUR/day at the reception desk. Thus, the ´´Free-of-charge WLAN is provided in the entire building´´ within the hotel's description on the website cannot other than be revealed to be a blunt lie and should be removed from there immediately. Be warned that if you arrive by car that around the hotel and its vicinity there is no free or cheap parking available (only expensive meters). If however, you are prepared to pay 12 EUR/day regularl, or 8 EUR/day reduced fee if the ticket is punched at the reception desk you can park very close to your room on the parking lot on the 2nd floor of the hotel from where a CCTV-guarded door offers direct access to the hotel's accommodation floors. But be warned, the parking lot is run by another operator which has nothing to do with the hotel, just in case that your 3-day parking ticket expires prematurely as opposed to what you had paid for, as was the case with mine. The cleanliness of the hotel rooms (esp. bath) seems to lack a little polish, at least from a woman's usually more attentive perception of such detail like that of my girlfriend who complained about dirty grooves from the shower's tiling. The bath towels also failed before her verdict, and indeed their fabric seems to be of quite poor quality, of such that one would usually just associate with a dish cloth. And they smelled, she insisted. As a personal conclusion, I would recommend this hotel to a railway traveler or someone who doesn't mind to add roughly 25 EUR/day to his bill for such trivialities as parking and Internet. But since I am rather on a short budget and regard the latter as bare necessities to an agreeable stay I would definitely choose another hotel during my next visit to Kiel.
