Good, convenient hotel for a short stay
The hotel was pre-paid but when we asked for an early check-in we were charged an extra €20. The room is bare bones but satisfactory. Definitely not warm and fuzzy. There was no concierge on duty but the desk clerk was helpful. The hotels location across from the train station makes it a choice location

Well worth a stay
Very nice and reasonable hotel. Friendly staff. Lacks some basic features for a big hotel, like a pool; some things are a bit dated. Overall though very very comfortable beds, quiet, friendly staff. A very good 4 star.

Nice hotel. But ask for room at back of hotel.
Really good hotel for price. Close to shops and train station. Very noisy at night in front rooms. People shouting and cars till all hours
Mable, gb2 night family trip
Good 6.0
The room which I booked was Superior and it was nothing like the Superior room which was booked last time. It was very small like a standard room. So this was the only disappointing part of the stay.

Basic and poor customer service
Stayed at this hotel a few times. During my last stay, the weather got very warm. My room air conditioning didn’t work. My colleague who was also staying at the hotel didn’t have a working air conditioning. Had to uncomfortably sleep with the windows open a few times, which was a problem when the street cleaners came first thing in the morning. Had to report the fault a few times at the desk to have it fixed, first them made me feel like I didn’t know how to operate simple dials! Some of the female customer service at the reception lack how to treat customers to say the least. This place lacks the ambience for a relaxation outside the rooms. A basic place to stay.

Very close to train station! Practically attached.
Came for only one night... super conveniently located less than a one minute walk to the train station! Wifi here is weak. I was surprised at that. The reception man wan not as nice as the reception when I checked out in the morning but, the stay was great and I will stay here again for sure!

Good stay for the Techno Classica event. Ideal location for metro connections and train to Dusseldorf airport. Good restaurants close by. Would have been nice to have coffee and tea facilities in the room. And note to all the women, I’d take a hair dryer with you. Overall, a nice stay.
