OK stay- room for improvement
The uniqueness of this hotel allows each room access to a "Marshall" amplifier and rent a guitar from the lobby to play in their room however this means every guest has access to an amplifier in their room! Woken up early every morning with banging music. Considering most guests are there on leisure to relax, this is a joke of a concept. Reception said not much they can do, the noisy guests are going home the next day-pretty poor really. Self check in removes personal touch and somewhat makes it feel cheap, you don't feel like you have a point of contact, we arrived at 1.30am and were directed to a tablet and that was it for a greeting. No fridge in the room, no tea or coffee facilities in the room - and was advertised as 4 stars Hotel. There is a communal facility on the 4th floor but who wants to get up and get a lift to the 4th to make a brew in the morning? Free drinks in exchange for no daily cleaning is nice. Pretty good amenities nearby, there is a Rewe supermarket next door, Starbucks on the corner, underground station, and 15 mins walk into town.
