    Leak in the room - transferred to sister hotel

    We really loved the Forster Hotel and choose particular this one but 30min before we arrived we got the call, that our room (the only one in the whole hotel) has a leak and therefore we have to transferred to the sister hotel (2km far away). All the discussion where helpless even we arrived so much earlier! They offered us a free beakfast and a room upgrade (too be honest, that wasn't an upgrade, they put us in a "suite" which was an service apartment) + die breakfast was not good at all! We totally understand that these things can happen but I think how they handle this situation was not good. They lied to us, that they called us a day before (didn't happened ) and just offered us things we don't need for a night in the city. However, I would still probable recommend the Forster to tray as it still looked really nice! Just hope that you don’t get this particular room with the leak

    Overpriced with a stingy breakfast.

    Breakfast buffet was stingy. We paid €217 for one night and I've had better breakfast where we have paid less than half of this. The apple juice was clearly watered down. What looked like OJ was empty and was never replenished even though we were there an hour before breakfast ended. They offered three plain cereal types, one of which was empty and was left empty. There were a handful of dried up looking small pastries. The inexperienced staff seated us and that was it. They never came back to take an order or show us where the buffet was. They had the cheek to try charge for our tea/coffee, even though it is clearly stated on the menu that tea and toast are included. Hotel room was nice but wasn't cleaned properly. There was a film of dust on the bedside lamps. Overall very disappointed in the hotel. Location was about the best attribute and there is no effort required on the hotel's part for that. Everything else was substandard and quite frankly, mean. Definitely don't pay for breakfast extra. There are a few nice cafes nearby where you will get better value and quality.
