Recent guest reviews
Pro. Located in downtown so all sites of interests as well as shopping centers are within walking distance. The food is not bad and the rooms are comfortable. Also it has its own parking. Contra. Nothing special, just a standard service. It may be a little bit noisy in the morning if windows are open. Summary. Good for business trips

Very comfortable beds. Hotel is located right in the centre. Has own car park underground for which you pay. Clean. Breakfast was very good with a lot of choice. Did not have time to try the spa. Staff were friendly.
This hotel is very well located, some rooms are very large for European style hotel. The breakfast is very good ant it includes unusual foods such as caviar. Brauschweig is a very iteresting city, the best restaurantes and shopping is within walking distance from the hotel.
I had stayed in the Best Western outside of the city centre previously and didn't think much of it, so when I was booked here I was prepared for a very average hotel. I was totally wrong ! Ban for buck, the hotel is excellent value for an overnight stay. In cases where you just need somewhere clean and comfy to get your head down this is right on target. I can't comment on the breakfast as they were renovating the breakfast area, but they did recommend an excellent bakery less than 5 mins walk away to get some brekkie. As a result of the 'lack' of breakfast we even got a discount on the room. Would I stay here again - Yes I would
By far the best sleep of my trip in Germany I loved the beds and pillows here! The non smoking room was good, didn't small of smoke, however the hallway did seem to smell if stale cigarette. Staff were very friendly and the rooms clean. Loved the breakfast provided as it had a good selection, not just cheese and toast. WiFi was sadly broken in my room but upon telling staff it was fixed the next day (sadly when I left). However I was still able to use it in the foyer where it worked well. No extras in the room like a microwave but it was right in the middle of town with all sorts of food and drinks within walking distance. Wasn't cheap, and I wouldn't stay there again as there are places which are cheaper (if further out of town) in Braunschweig, although if you can afford it, it is lovely.
I got a room for two nights at the last floor. It was really perfect as I really do care of noise... The staff was just ok. Let's say that at my arrival the desk manager was not speaking english so much... Breakfast is nice if you like continental food. As I prefer sweeties I didn't really appreciate. They have dew car parks but car park around are really not expensive.
Superb hotel only few minutes of walking distance from the main city square and famous Dom, XII century cathedral and amazingly long and interesting pedestrian zone. This city will make falling in love with in just a few minutes. Its streets, monuments, squares, great and breathtaking parks...if you stay cold in front of it, it just means you are not a human but drone or android maybe:-)))
The people who run this place are very nice indeed, but their hotel just doesn't quite cut it. Our room - equipped for the handicapped, for some reason - was smallish and slightly dingy. Minibar but no in-room coffee maker. Bathroom large, breakfast OK and served by helpful, friendly staff. Internet ridiculously primitive and inefficient. Most importantly, our room was burgled and my wife's suitcase stolen. Management was very sorry and gave us a smallish) bottle of wine, but the building's faulty security certainly contributed to the theft. There's one security video, filming the lobby, but the thief could simply have gone down the stairs and exited by the unvideod garage. Need I add that we won't be going back anytime soon?
been a while want to try this hotel and last week i found their rate fit my expense limit, so why not try this, i knew it would be not quiet, got the room facing the street and i can see in front my favorite turkish restaurant obayaci 54 (must try their lamb). the room is standard bestwestern with a flat screen cable tv (cost 12 euro per day for movie and stuff) and got a small toilet with small shower, no water boiler, and a standard freeze and standard minibar. the restaurant is ok, not so many spread of food but good enough. they got a basement parking that cost 10 euro per day, small and fit 15 cars or so, need to point your gps to leopardstrasse 38 to reach this parking. somehow after few night i feel like in bronx US, a lot of peoples hanging out and dont know what their doing and beside the hotel is casino and notorious redlight district, so its happening but not in good way
