8/10 Very good

Quiet and comfortable stay
Beautiful industrial architecture and very comfortable room. Good breakfast at a decent price. Easy self check-in at any time of the day and night. Availability of the personnel was a pain point for me though. I stayed for two days and could have used some help for a couple of things, but I never saw anyone at the front desk, and only on & off at the restaurant. I was in town for business and liked that it was very calm and quiet. Not ideal if you are off on a “hostel party trip”.

Architektonisch spezielles Hotel
Das Silo ist ein stylisches Hotel, eher spartanisch aber geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Bett war sehr bequem, und das Frühstück war von guter Qualität. Die Lage des Hotels ist etwas ausserhalb des Zentrums.

Gerne wieder!
Stylisch eingerichtetes, modernes und urbanes Hostel. Sehr sauber, freundlich und unkompliziert. Leckeres Frühstück. Wir waren mit unserem Aufenthalt sehr zufrieden. In den Zimmern hört man die danebenliegende Autobahn ein wenig. Haben wir aber nicht als störend empfunden.
