    Very good

    The receptionist is unfriendly, as other guests have mentioned that this hotel has problem with pre booking procedure, although we have the confirmation reference number, but the receptionist informed us that they did not received payment, as we were not in our own country, we could not check with the bank whether the hotel has deducted the payment, yet the receptionist was keep insulting asians and australians, seems like all asians and australians are not honest, we felt very embarassed. Although we booked the room for a night, but we were only checked in and need the room in the next morning 4 hours before check out time. The receptionist keep asking for cash and informed us the time difference in Germany, we had to check out in time. We think that the receptionist should change his attitude and settle problem in gentle way. We also hope that Booked.net will look into this serious matter and not to promote this hotel anymore.

    Exceptional

    We felt that the hotel was a good value for the money, clean and close to shopping and the bus and train stations. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    The only negative thing we found about the location of the hotel was the proximity of several sex shops on the street which results in the presence of some unsavory characters. Also, the hotel breakfast, though quite good, we found to be expensive and preferred to go to the bakery on the corner.

    Superb

    The room was perfect and for that price excellent. I needed a hotel next to the train station, hence this was the perfect pic for that.

    I needed a location next to the train station, so this was perfect. Unfortunately, any location next to the train station involves prostitutes near by and some noise at night. Didn´t bother me that much, though.

    Close to train station and shopping facilities (food, restaurants, pharmacy, walking distance to a lot of things)

    Trashy, area. Poor red light area location.

    There are few things which I didn't like: 1. Hotel makes a problem with pre booking procedure so when you come there hotel isnt payed, no matter what was written on sms from your bank account. 2. Hotel doesn't state anywhere that the breakfast isnt included as did clearly with the wi fi which again, as breakfast they charge additionally. 3. I didnt have hot water in room upon my arrival and it took them whole day to fix it. 4.Receptionists are extremely rude, and I just cant understand with which purpose the hotel was built. When I kindly asked one of the receptionist to lower his voice down and to stop interrupting me, he said "I dont care, you are in Germany, deal with it". 5. Size of the beds are ridiculous . worst experience ever!

    Surroundings: Full of drug addicts and whores. Three of the 4 days the police had to come. Too noisy and disgusting to go out in the morning or arrive in the afternoon

    The price was decent, but remeber, you really get what you pay for.

    The hotel was in a bad part for town, right in the middle of all the porn shops, drug addicts and homeless people. Watched a grown woman in dirty clothes vomit right outside the hotel entrance in the middle of the afternoon. Constant crowd for dirty, intoxicated people right outside the door. not recomended for a family with children! Very small bathroom. Thin walls. Spend the extra 20 euro and find a better hotel! I went back and read the other reviews after my stay, all true! Read the reviews.

    Very close to cental station (Hauptbahnhof). The hotel is very small - 5 floors with 5 rooms per floor. Staff was polite, room was clean and kept that way daily. Bed was very comfortable.

    I would have liked to see more selection for breakfest, albeit it was ok. Hotel is at or near to Red Light district, streets are populated by prostitutes. Value for money was really poor - 195 euro per night excluding breakfest which was addition 7 euro.

    Location is near to the main train station. However there are too many drug addicts, beggars and drunkards fronting the hotel. Very noisy especially at weekend nights.

    The geographical position is great - near the central station and not far from Roemer, shopping area and the beautiful river area. The room war rather clean. Reservation worked properly.

    I haven't read the comments before, so I was unpleasantly surprised to find out that the hotel was in the red lights district. I didn't have any bad experiences, but I wouldn't have chosen it, had I known it. I think Booked.net should put a note while providing general information on the hotel (E.G. situated in the bahnhof viertel, in the red lights district). The room smelled of cigarettes and something else that was supposed to neutralise the cigarette smell. It would be better to have breakfast included in the price.

    Superb

    My room was very clean and neat.

    The hotel is, like many in this area, in the red light district near the train station. For some, it may not be quiet enough.

  • 6.2
    Good

    The location: While being crammed into the Red Light District in the thick of small businesses, it turned out to be a great location as it was just a 2 block walk to the Bahnhof and very accessible walk to the major sites of the old town. As well, it was 4 blocks from the lovely walkway along the River which was great for morning runs and biking. The main airport was a mere 3 trains stops away so it turned out to be very convenient as a one night stopover. It turned out to be a very quiet hotel. We didn't take in the extra fare breakfast as bakeries were a block away.

    It was very dark. It seemed that the breakfast was included and we didn't find out 'til after booking that the breakfast was at an extra cost.
