8/10 Very good

Check in was fine, staff friendly, great in-room coffee. We loved the location, close to everything, just across the river from the Bahnhof, and close to restaurants and attractions in Altstadt. Will stay again, even though the room was a bit small.

Great location! Shops and restaurants are steps away!

Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

The central location and friendly staff were a huge plus for this hotel. The AC is essentially nonexistent, which makes the rooms uncomfortbale in the summer. That's a problem specific to this hotel, since we stayed in several other places throughout Europe with hotter weather on this same trip with no issue.
