N53°04′44.11″ E08°48′00.05″ We arrived at Flughafen Bremen and within 30 minutes after landing reached Motel One Bremen with tram/Straßenbahn 6 and bus 25. The public transport stop Am Brill (Martinistraße) is 50 meters away. Motel One (not a motel but an ordinary hotel) is located in the "Altstadt" of Bremen on the corner of Bürgermeister Smidt Straße and Am Brill. This new hotel was a former office building. This explains the unusual U-shape of the hotel, with rooms in three connected buildings in a U-shape. After our stay at Motel One Munich, we expected a small and overcrowded lobby and a tiny room. Motel One Bremen had a large café as lobby with a lot of space and an outside courtyard. The large lobby is needed for the enormous amount of breakfast guests in the morning.
Our room 546 on the fifth floor (6F) in May 2018, overlooking Am Brill, had a more acceptable room size. The Motel One organisation did not make the same space-saving mistake as in Munich. This new room had a comfortable double bed, a great shower, ample storage space, television, hairdryer and free Wi-Fi reception. Our room was equipped with USB sockets in case you forgot your charger. Although the room has a large window for fresh air, we slept with closed window and air conditioner turned on to keep out the street noise, especially from trams (streetcars). Trams on the level rail crossing make a thundering loud noise. Next time we ask for a room in the other buildings.
Although many reviewers complained about the attitude of reception staff, our check-in was smooth and friendly. One day the housekeeper forgot fresh towels. The reception provided them quickly. Breakfast consists of a buffet in the lobby. Nothing cooked or fried except boiled eggs. The buffet has a large choice of bread, pastries, croissants, cheeses, cold meat, yoghurts, fruit, cereals, coffee, tea and milk. Motel One emphasis the organic quality of their breakfast buffet. We paid €102 per night without using an online travel website.
Motel One Bremen offered a real hotel room with good breakfast for an average price. Do not take a room in the front building if you want to sleep with open window.
