Very clean rooms and friendly staff
Amazing, very family like, staff is very helpful. Rooms are super clean but maybe a bit old fashioned. Bathrooms are newly renovated though.
Britta, ie1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Das Bett war sehr hart und man hat unter der Bettdecke so geschwitzt, dass wir die Klimaanlage anschalten mussten. Die Zimmerkarten können sich entladen, wenn man sie in der Nähe des Handys aufbewahrt. Wenn dies unterwegs passiert und man außerhalb der Rezeptionszeit zum Hotel zurück kommt, kommt man nicht hinein. Personal sehr freundlich. Parken war ein paar Straßen weiter für 4€ am Tag möglich.

Sehr schönes und gemütliches kleines Hotel
Ein sehr schönes Hotel. Das Zimmer lag ruhig, das Bad neu saniert, die Zimmereinrichtung etwas veraltet, doch alles sauber. Das Frühstück war sehr gut und das Personal super freundlich. Das Hotel liegt in einer ruhigen Straße. Zu Fuß erreicht man in fünf Minuten die U-Bahn, mit der man in 10 Minuten am Neumarkt ist.

Etwas in die Jahre gekommen
Das Hotel liegt in einem dicht bebauten Wohngebiet. Es gibt nur wenige hoteleigene Parkplätze, die man nicht im Voraus reservieren kann. Des Weiteren gibt es im Hinterhof des Hotels noch 4 kleine Garagen, die man für 15,- Euro pro Nacht anmieten kann, wenn eine frei ist. Die zwei äußeren Garagen sind nicht für Menschen geeignet, die nicht einparken können (am besten rückwärts sonst hat man Schwierigkeiten aus dem engen Hof über den Gehweg und den anschließenden Parkstreifen wieder unbeschadet auf die Straße zu kommen). Der Service war freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Zimmereinrichtung ist altmodisch und wirkt düster. In Bezug auf die Sauberkeit lässt sich aber nichts negatives berichten. Das Bad war sehr klein aber auch sauber und wesentlich moderner als das Zimmer. Das Hotel ist sehr verwinkelt, ein altes Haus eben. Man braucht schon einen guten Orientierungssinn, um sich nicht zu verlaufen. Das Haus hat aber einen gewissen Charme! Das Hotel liegt in der Nähe der Live Music Hall. Die Taxifahrten dorthin waren mit je unter 10 Euro günstig. Insgesamt fand ich den Preis von 116,- Euro für die Übernachtung im DZ ohne Frühstück (12 Euro extra) leicht überzogen.
