acora Hotel und Wohnen Bonn3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Hotel (with a Hostel feel) has good connection to the city centre by public transport, though it is located in a somewhat dodgy area of Bonn. Free parking on the road, free wifi and a clean room in an old-fashioned apartment block is what you get for around 50 Euros. If you are on a budget, this place may do.
I have stayed in this hotel recommended by my colleagues. the rooms are in the building as you see in the pictures, but some people are living also in this hauses. the rooms are clean but they are very unpersonal. the furnitures are there but the whole thing has no character - this "cold" feeling. the braekfast could be better, only a few variaty is offered nevertheless - a low class place with quality
For a good price you can get nice and clean accommodation, good breakfast. Hotel is not in the best area of Bonn (Tannenbusch) so keep your eyes open and stay alert while walking around. It is in a walking distance from Tannenbusch Mitte metro station with good connection to center or Cologne. No opportunities for dining around the hotel, though. Wifi is for free after asking for vouchers on reception. It is quite slow. Overall it is quite good if you are not picky, i.e. from UK. ;-)
This is my second visit to Acora hotel in Tannenbusch, Bonn. It's located in a poorer area of Bonn, but is close to tram and bus connections to Bonn City centre. I'm happy with this hotel, I don't mind the area it's in, but the German friends I visited advised the area has problems with drug abuse. Since I last visited, the local supermarket closed down, the student village has been demolished and a master plan is under consideration for economic regeneration of Tannenbusch - big changes are envisaged. The Acora is simply furnished, but rooms include coking facilities, a sink, fridge and the necessary equipment to self-cater. This suited my vegan needs. The bathroom is a good size, the bd was comfortable and the TV programming included English language channels. I'd return.
I stayed there for two nights. I must say I do not know how much the room costs as I was there for business. Well, I do not think the room and facilities live up to the business traveller expectations. The room was big but the furniture was so hopelessly German and the bed was much too smaal (one single bed). I do not know who installed the shower head. It was tucked in into the corner so I had to stand in the shower in the very uncomfortable position. It was also a hussle to get the water temperature right (too hot or too cold). There is no possibility for dinner in the evening. The only restaurant is a kilometer away. I would not like to stay there again. No good espresso in the monring (just a coffee from a thermos jug!
I have stayed at this hotel alone and with family, and was equally very happy. They do offer a kitchentte which means you can make your own meals if you feel like eating a home cooked meal away from home!
Stayed two nights on third floor. Room was of good size with reasonable sized bathroom. Facilities in the room included LCD TV, safe, bar fridge, hot plate and cutlery. Staff were helpful and spoke excellent German and good English. Only problem was that there was no elevator. Hotel is located in apartment block a short walk from U-Bahn station Tannenbusch Mitte (U66).
The exterior of this enchanting hotel could be deceitful. It exudes an aura of nondescript coldness and age that will make the traveller feel he is in the wrong place. Until you walk inside. From the reception, you meet a very warm staff that takes you through lodging formalities, then you are alone. Location of your room is described to you and you have to find it yourself. The blocks are secure from an intruder. The beds are fanciful but without a space to waste with the settee almost confusing you as to which one is the bed. You have a mini bar in the room and heater. The rooms are neat and attractive. Breakfast is sumptuous .
I was looking for a moderate price hotel not too far from the city center and I ended up finding this place. It was a reasonable price (82 euro per night, incl breakfast). The hotel itself looked quite average, I dislike multiple entries and would prefer not to go through outside every time I needed something at the reception. It also feels safer. What I didn't like was the environment. The closest restaurants are located quite far away and the whole neighborhood feels little unsafe (I really didn't appreciate arriving during dark time here). The hotel also have some other little flaws which annoyed me quite a bit, like quite slow internet connection with coupons about which I found out about by accident (nobody at the reception told me that I may want to request some coupon and from the website which pops up after connecting to wireless, it looked like you have to pay) and some of the receptionists didn't really speak much english, which was annoying especially when I wanted to order taxi for airport for early in the morning, I was dreaded that the 'operation taxi' will fail, honestly. But let's go for the pros, the hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and it's well connected with the city center (approx. eight minutes by train). If you need a place just to sleep over, it's a reasonable choice.
If you are staying in Bonn for more than 6 days and on a budget this might be a good option. They charge you around EUR 56 without breakfast. Positives: 1. Free internet vouchers; no extra charges. Many other hotels charge me extra for the same. 2. Just 3-4 minutes away from the Tannenbusch Mitte Station. You can reach Bonn HBF in minutes and Koln Hbf (Dom) is about 45 mins. 3. Rooms are good with some provision for cooking, (which is rare in hotels here) and they are not very small as compared to some other hotels i stayed in. 4. Quiet location 5. The staff is overall very polite and kind. Negative: 1. The location is not so great; 'perceived' not to be very safe (poor immigrants etc?). Although, i had no troubles personally. There's not much to do around here. You will have to take the train to get to any place decent to hang out or for shopping. Although it will just cost about 1.80 EUR for a one way ticket to Bonn Hbf. So it's compromise. 2. I would have liked tea/coffee in my room. Wasn't there.
