The hotel is very clean and spacious, with friendly staff and a good restaurant. The surroundings are peaceful, yet busy shopping malls are just 18 minutes’ walk away!

The hotel is new and well built, but we experienced a fire evacuation at 4 am during the stay, which disturbed the sleep, unfortunately :(

8/10 Very good

Regretfully there was no restaurant - only a snack bar - in the hotel, whereas the information on Google Maps said there should be one. If that had been the case I would have given this hotel the maximum rating.

8/10 Very good

Overall good hotel
Modern hotel in a good location if you don’t mind using the ubahn. Entrance to the ubahn station is only steps away- but it’s an extra cost to consider. Breakfast was great and parking is right under the hotel for 19€ per day. Staff were very friendly. Complaints would be the street noise was insane if you cracked your window. Our room was inexplicably hot so we wanted fresh air- but it was definitely noisy. Room was clean but small and no coffee in the room. Overall it was a good hotel, but not great.
