We had a wonderful experience. The front desk staff bent over backwards to assist us with a personal issue that could have turned out badly. They were awesome! Rooms were clean and well appointed. Great location. Fabulous stay! ThankYouThankYouThankYou

I stayed here while attending a conference at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in November, 2016. The price was very affordable and included a healthy continental breakfast with some nice choices. The room was contemporary in decor, equipped with fridge, iron and ironing board and was very quiet and comfortable. Staff were helpful. There was a grocery store just feet away from the hotel and it was just a 5 minute walk to the town centre, shopping, bakeries and restaurants. It was very relaxing to stay here while attending a conference with a busy agenda.

I stayed here for just one night this week and have another stay booked in a weeks time. It's modern, clean, well maintained and comfortable. There were a lot of people staying the night we were there but our room was fantastically peaceful. We arrived just as night was falling so we went for a wander to find somewhere for dinner and came across a great Thai restaurant one block behind the hotel...(photo below) the food was cheap, fresh and tasted really good. Just two doors up is an awesome organic grocers with everything you could possibly need for snacks and nibbles (there's a nice bakery within the shop as well as a pharmacy, a butchery and a small cafe). There are a number of cafes in the vicinity of the hotel (again on the same block as the Thai place and the Bio Market), so if like us you can't stomach nasty hotel filter coffee, you won't have to go far for your fix. The free continental breakfast is good. The restaurant was a little mad when we went and space was at a premium (9am) but we managed to squeeze in and filled up for the day! The addition of an espresso machine would make the breakfast without fault! The hotel staff are lovely, very friendly, very professional. I thoroughly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good value for money option. We'll definitely be back.

We spent a week here while visiting family. Excellent location, a short walk to city center, proximity to public transportation (just outside the hotel), friendly and helpful reception. The breakfast is generous and varied. During this time of year the hotel is at full capacity and the dining room is very busy. Our room was very clean and also comfortable, though not very spacious, with a double bed. It would be enhanced if a mini refrigerator was available. The bathroom is nicely designed but lacks extra hooks as well as a second rack for large towels. I would have preferred a slightly thicker towel as well. There is a parking garage in the building available to guests for 15€/nt. Despite a few shortcomings, it has been a pleasant stay and we would recommend and return, especially because of convenience of location.

I came for an business trip, Rooms were good, but one concern there was no water bottles kept in my room, since we are irking for long hours, need to call up for water bottles, other than that everything was fine

Stayed here because could get two beds in a room. Wasn't as close to main train station as had hoped. Fairly typical, sterile hotel with average service. A bit longer walk to city center. Would probably recommend other hotels closer to the castle.

The hotel had never disappointed me with anything. The breakfast is complimentary and they offer decent spread of items. The staff is friendly and everything was available on time. They provide free high speed internet. Parking is available on charge. The best is the location of the hotel, a 50 m stride to the bus/tram stop, a super market on the ground floor. You may even walk to the central train station(Hauptbanhof aka HBF). Royal Doner Kebab is also 50m away for you need to eat cheap and filling.

This hotel is easy to get to from the train station- about 5 mins walk. Coming out of the station we went to the tourist information where the assistance was excellent. Clear directions were given in well spoken English as was other helpful suggestions about travelling on public transport. The hotel had a good sized room and bathroom, both very clean. Was good to be able to have kettle in the room. A good supermarket nearby as was access to restaurants and public transport. A good breakfast supplied. Bus to Schloss just outside and 5 min walk to old town pedestrian walk.

Modern and well appointed hotel, breakfast is good and included and parking available for a reasonable price. Walking to the old city core is about 10mins, so very convenient for tourist visits and going out after a long day in the office. The rooms are spacious enough and clean.

Good hotel, clean, new, nice rooms. Breakfast is fine (by IHG standards ;)). The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is the internet connection. It was horrible - see the picture (measured at 7am BTW, evenings are even worse). Basically the internet is unusable.
