We were most disappointed when arriving to the hotel at 12.30am after a long evening due to a delayed flight and eventful taxi ride to the hotel only to discover that the hotel was 'over booked.' We purposefully booked this hotel for its central location to save money on taxi fares which was then not the case when 1 lone member of our party had to go else where. The gentleman behind the reception desk was less than helpful, could not explain how this had happened and just kept chuckling as if this was a little mistake which was nothing to worry about. This then forced the single member of our group to travel further out of the city to another hotel on their own. We were assured that this would be resolved by the next day only to find yet again that one member of our group would be staying alone in a different hotel for another night. Other than covering the cost of the first taxi, the hotel made no attempt to compensate us for this situation and refused to far for further taxis despite this being a result of their miscommunication and inefficient planning. The hotel itself was extremely basic, staff were not helpful or welcoming which put a dampener on our weekend away.

Location may not suit everyone whilst central the area would not suit families although I went with my son he’s 15 so no problem. The hotel is close to the Rhine, the Cathedral, Hard Rock Cafe and Alter Markt so that was good. It’s functional, clean rooms, bathroom did smell of sewage. Hotel staff were ok, but female receptionist did huff when we had a problem with our bathroom light. Reception area was very dark. Free coffee at reception as there is no kettle in the room. Back of hotel is quiet as front faces into street. We enjoyed our stay, it was near to everything but if we go again would probably stay at a different hotel.

Die zentrale Lage ist super, einzig das direkte Umfeld ist etwas schmuddelig mit 2 Gay Clubs, 1 Sexkino und 1 Sexshop. Das Hotel ist eher renovationbedürftig, sehr ringhörig und nicht gerade sauber. Die Angestellten sind freundlich, aber beim Check-In hat halt doch nicht alles geklappt und mir wurde gesagt, dass mein Zimmer noch nicht bezahlt wurde.
