I really do like this hotel--it is in a great location near the Lanxess arena, and the price could not be beat. The parking was great and you can't beat the price--FREE. The only real issue I had was the very uncomfortable bed and pillows in the
room. If you are going to this hotel and live close, I would suggest bringing your own pillow. The staff was great, the bar inside was nice, and we had a car to drive to eat at outside locations--you will definitely need this.
The only other issue I have is that they must have been remodeling the rooms above or below us. We were woken up by construction, specifically hammering, at 0830. After a late night out at a concert, this was VERY annoying. We were in a non-smoking room and the workers there were clearly smoking as it wafted through my windows. I finally was so frustrated we ended up leaving a before 10 am just to get back to our homes an hour away to get some real sleep. I would just suggest the hotel limit booking rooms in that area if there is work. Other then that, the staff was great, the hotel was nice, and the price was definitely worth it. I would go back--just not in a room near any inside construction.
