Maritim Hotel Bonn4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stayed here for 7 nights in November 2017. I had a room on the 6th floor with plenty of space. Decent bed but no coffee/espresso machine or electric kettle, or complementary bottle of water for that matter. Not many shops/restaurants around but good access to multiple U-Bahn stations by walk. Gym facility has rather limited space and selection of equipment (1 multi-training machine and a few bikes/treadmills, no weights). A bit expensive for the quality of service and facility as I paid EUR212 per night.
I recently visited the 'Maritim Hotel' in Bonn as I was attended FedCon's convention (FearCon) due to company using the hotel as their chosen venue for convenience sake I book a room. From my research into the hotel before booking, everything looked top notch. Expecting to be met by a pleasant and even luxurious hotel was short lived. The almost gothic decadence of the decor depicted seemed to perfectly complement the conventions 'Horror theme'. In all honesty, I was disappointed with the my experience. Although the staff were all very friendly, making the hotel an altogether pleasant place to be, the establishments interiors did not evoke the same feeling as they had done on previously viewing the venue online. Instead of the warm and cosy feel that I had been expecting, was not there instead the hotel just seemed rather dated and I feel that this detracted from the whole experience. I also do not know if the room itself was worth its value. It had an uncomfortable cadet-style bed with a thin pillow and a strange blanket, giving the bedroom a cheap feeling and uncomfortable nights rest. I was also somewhat dismayed by the service we received from the hotel’s housekeeping team. Although my room was cleaned well, the maids evidently moved my personal belongs with a blatant disregard for their value. Again, this is not the service I would expect from a hotel of this calibre with people stating it was a five star establishment . Additionally, I feel as though we live in a world wherein WiFi connectivity has become an amenity for our modern society, so I was also disappointed by the poor quality of this service as it prevented me from being able to properly contact my loved ones and I feel as though this is something that such large establishment in the hospitality and tourism industry should be aware of. The pool really was the saving grace of the entire hotel, offering escape from my overwhelming feeling of disappointment. I am glad that the staff were so friendly and welcoming because this, at least, put my somewhat at ease during my stay. The meal I had in the hotel's restaurant was beautiful. The lady who served us was so lovely, welcoming and understanding that I was from London and did not know any German.
The room's furnitures are outdated and the cleaning is not done properly as the windows are let opened during the day and all the dust from the renovation's work at the balcony level are getting in the room. Also to be noted the noisy renovation work going on and not having been informed when checkin or even in the elevator a small notice would have been appreciated. I have had to call the reception 5 times about the noise before 8am and even though workers didn't stop to wait for an appropriate time to continue their noisy work. I have been very disappointed by this place and informed the "management" in order to improve the same in the future but it looks like it was just a chat for them and no action will be taken.
I stayed here for 9 nights and paid too much money for a very disappointing stay. The hotel seems like luxury with its fancy lobby and high prices, but does nothing to ensure real comfort. Items that are basics in many other hotels in similar price ranges aren't provided: no kettle in the room. There's a pool, but no robe or slippers. The wifi is terrible and only worked reliably if I stood in the bathroom. Shampoo is offered and not very nice shower gel, but no conditioner or body lotion. The light is poor, the carpet is old, shabby and not very clean. I stayed recently in an excellent small hotel in Stockholm, a very expensive city, and for half the price there was coffee and apples in the lobby offered all the time. This hotel in Bonn offers nothing. Impersonal, in need of renovation and over priced. It would be an acceptable basic hotel only if at half the price.
This hotel is the best for huge events for more than 1000 persons. Quite modern and convenient. There is considerable gala hall. But lunch prices are quite high. It's comfortable venue for trade fair.
We stayed one night in transit to Saltzburg. The hotel was very comfortable and basically a good, somewhat upmarket, chain hotel. We had a standard meal prepared for the group and it was pleasant. Drinks were reasonably priced.
I payed 130€ per night. Is important to say it, to understand that with such a price, expectations are allowed. The price can reach up to 180 if they consider that you can be fooled. BAD: I had black hands after touching the window. The carpet is probably 30 years old (no exaggeration hier! Believe me!). The furniture is older than what my grandfather has. The bad is not comfortable at all. The room stinks. I had to keep the window open all the time. AC is just a dream. (don't get fouled by the 70 years old device you see on the wall that is supposed to control de AC). The room is dirty. Sticky papers are hanging on the sealing. I feel unsafe to walk in the room without shoes. The bed head is full of dust! I don't know when was last cleaned. I cleaned the room myself for 15 min using toilet paper! (no joke hier!) I am glad I do not have a dark light device to see what I do not want to see. 1L water from Evian is 11,50€. (can be bought from the gas station nearby at the very high price of 3 €, supermarket is 0,80). At the reception, the checkin took 20 min, for me alone. Not considering the queue. The lady was simply doing too much stuff in parallel. Honestly, people can get sick here. This place must be shut down or advertised as cheap accommodation for self-cleaning. The general manager should be charged for negligence regarding people health (if you ask me...) Good: bad is renovated and OK.
Not bad in any way but also nothing special. We were there during the week to attend a wedding and it provided for all our needs. It had all the amenities one looks for to include a pool and a spa as well as a number of restaurants. The room was spacious, the bath/toilet acceptable. As many have noted, it is in need of some tender loving care as it appears to be frayed around the edges but there was nothing off-putting. For someone attending a seminar, exhibit, or some other large gathering, it fits the bill. If we were to return to Bonn, I would probably not stay there again but only out of curiosity of what other hotels in it's class have to offer. The rooms on the back side of the hotel face the regional train tracks which might be too noisy for some if one wishes to sleep with the window open.
We stayed one night at this rather lovely hotel in the business quarter of Bonn. The hotel is well presented with a warm but professional atmosphere. The food was excellent and staff extremely helpful. The beds were extremely comfortable and the room service fairly prompt. I would stay here again if passing through Bonn.
The hotel meets all my needs. Close to my customer, safe parking, clean room with good bedding. Staff in the brasserie and reception is very helpful. The menu is basic but the quality is really good, no doubts. I have no reason not to go back here in the future if I have need.
