Best Western Hotel Braunschweig Seminarius3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Does what it says on the packaging, there is nothing fundamentally wrong, but nor is there anything inspired. It is what it is. Clean, useful locale, OK breakfast, and parking and wifi. As I said at the start, does what it says.
A three stars hotel that meets the expactations of a traveling business person. Trained personal and good ambiance. Dining area quite cosy and a bar in which big flat screens are waiting to be watched. Free parking place, sauna and gym, clean rooms. The only negative point was the lack of hot water in the shower.
Me and my partner have being staying in hotels all over Germany for the past few months for his work and this is the worst place we have been! On arrival the place looked lovely and thought we would have a enjoyable stay. Got to the room and it was small and cramped although clean. We went to the bar for a drink and I asked for a rose wine to which the bar man laughed and then began speaking to other Germans knowing I couldn't understand. Made me feel stupid and belittled. The following day we went back down for 2 cokes, the same man seen us coming and walked away from the bar and never returned. Another man came and eventually served us. On the Saturday night there was a party in the restaurant and the music was blaring until after midnight with girls running up and down the corridor laughing and slamming doors! Then the Sunday night there was more loud noises making for 2 restless nights in a row. My partner told the woman in the morning we would be checking out early because he had not enjoyed our stay after paying good money, she laughed and then said 'ok bye'. I would strongly advice if you speak English do not stay here as they cannot be bothered with you at all! My partner let's his work know of good places to stay for the other colleagues if need be, and he will tell them never to use this hotel!
The hotel's 3 stars completely matches the level of comfort here. Average price, average rooms, average comfort, but it IS a good stay in the suburbs of Braunschweig. The room I stayed in was rather small, but with a good modernised bathroom. Also, breakfast was beyond my expectations: a lot of food and drinks to choose in the early morning. Positive: free WiFi in all hotel rooms, good breakfast, lots of parking space, very neat bathroom, good price/quality ration. Negative: Outside city centre, outdated rooms, rather small rooms.
Stayed there twice for a few nights. There is no additional charge for parking and there is plenty of parking spots available. The rooms are OK nothing special. I couldn't find the advertised pool when I asked I was told that it does not exist any more. The breakfast is very good.
but it definitely lacks a soul. The rooms are very small, basic, the bathroom is modernized, very new and clean. The restaurant is ok but the flair is missing. Service is average, the young team is friendly but not very experienced, maybe not trained enough. To the management, please refurbish the lift. And less self advertisement kind of everywhere would be pleasant.
Nice and frendly staff, good breakfast, Rooms maybe not spaceous but enough to move around. Area dont have much attraction and you need a car or taxi to go and see something, Hotell offers free internet acces,
My family rented two rooms at the Balladins Superior Hotel in suburban Braunschweig. Our rooms were both spacious two level rooms with nice amenities. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very clean. The hotel offers a very nice buffet breakfast at a reasonable extra price.
We stayed here for one night on our way to Harzen. The family room was nice and spacious with floors. The beds are nice too. With that said we were quite disappointed because the pool was closed during summer although it didn't say on either hotels.com or in their own welcome material. In the description of the room it said that the bathroom had a tub. It hadn't. They made up for that by giving us an extra room (single room) that had a tub. There isn't anything to do in the area so we went to the center of Braunschweig (15 min. by car) to eat.
Having read some reviews here and on other websites prior to arriving I had a little concern about our booking, but everything was fine. If you are British, expect a Ibis or Travellodge type of accommodation and you will be happy. It is located in a quiet district, and you will probably need a car or taxis to get about. Previous reviews had me expecting noise, which I can confirm. Outside noise was not a problem, but if someone talks in the hallway, you will hear. This did not cause me a problem on our stay, as all the guests were very quiet! Some reviews mentioned small beds, I did not find this (I had a single bed and am almost 2M tall) but a colleague with a double said they were small doubles. The staff are indeed very friendly. There is a small menu of items for dinner, and a buffet breakfast. Some reviews complained about the breakfast but I found it absolutely fine. There is a computer desk with printer in the lobby, and free wifi (I found the wifi a bit hit and miss) Overall the hotel is clean and well kept and I'd definitely return.
