Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉Check in was 5pm - 6pm only, Room very small and too hot. Owner tried to move me to a larger, more expensive room that I didn't need. TV worked, but only a handful of channels available. Had to reach under the bathroom sink to empty the water out. No staff available at any time.

눉Do not stay here if you are impatient. I arrived around noon and the place was locked up with a note (in German) on the door. Called and the owner(?) answered and said check in was between 5:00 and 6:00 (the confirmation did say 5:00 check in, so fair enough). If you arrive early plan to park on the street and walk around until 5:00. If you take a cab or the train plan to sit on your bags. The owner is a very nice man but he was up in years and worked very slowly. My check in took about an hour, and I seemed to be the only guest in the place that night...so if you have kids best to have your wife keep exploring town with them while you check in. The owner left me a key to the place and went home (apparently leaving me the run of the hotel). A woman did arrive in the morning to provide breakfast (10 euro, didn’t eat there). Also, the shower was tiny with an annoying cloth curtain. The receipt is in German only & he can’t provide a zeroed-out final receipt ( if you need that). Despite all this I enjoyed my stay and would return.
눇Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the train. Parking was provided in an adjacent garage (10 Euro/day). Lobby and rooms were basic and small but very clean and modern. Nice quaint street views. Nearby church bell tolling was cool. Price was right.

눉check-in took half an our. The man at the desk did not know how to use an computer. The day after they had no tickets for the parking even if I paid for parking, the lady had to go down in the parking cellar with me and lock me out. On my way back the man called me and told me I had not paid for the hotel. I could inform him about the AMEX reciept with number, and he said to me at the evening it had been to much for him

눉Nobody was present when I arrived, I had to call and wait for 20 minutes. When I called owner complained that he had to come again (4th time). Owner was not aware of my booking, something with computer system. He forced me to pay cash. Room was poor, but OK. In the morning there were broken bottles on the staircase while staff was aware. Worst thing he ripped me off and charged me 101 Euro (ex. breakfast) instead of agreed 89 Euro. Kick out of booking.com asap, not worth to have on your list !!!

눉The personnel should definitely change the approach towards the business. The owner is sometimes treating the accommodation activity as a part-time hobby. Therefore, we had to wait 30 minutes way after the agreed check-in hour in order to be welcomed inside. Taking in consideration Germany's December temperature this is not the most customer-oriented attitude. Maybe the change of generations is sometimes a wise business decision, even in a conservative society.
눇The hotel is small size but room was pretty big and quiet; it is stylish and comfortable.

눉Unfortunately, circumstances made this reservation process difficult, to say the least. This owner does not seem to understand the Booking.com process for cancellation, nor is able to accurately reflect their establishment on the website, and is entirely rude to customers. There is no staff on site, so do not expect the "normal hotel or gasthof" experience of asking for help/getting another pillow/etc. Due to no staff on site, we had to confirm that we were going to get our room cleaned each day. The cleaning of it was quite poor, especially hanging towels back up "as if they were clean ones" when we had indicated for them to be exchanged (in the tub). Breakfast and parking are not included, thought led to believe that they were. Breakfast is not offered every day of the week, so be sure if you plan to eat there that the hotel will be serving breakfast. There is no real parking on site either; you can sometimes find a spot along the street or directly in front of the hotel, but otherwise, you must use the altstadt garage. There are no rooms with 2 double beds, though my reservation was for a room with one. Furthermore, if there is a family emergency that pulls the owner (who is the only staff of the hotel, it seems) away from being an appropriate host, THE COURTEOUS ACTION TO TAKE WOULD BE TO CANCEL THE RESERVATIONS. Then, the owner and family would be able to handle themselves appropriately without the need to attempt to accommodate guests. We had been trying to cancel our reservations for several days, but due to the emergency, the owner was difficult to contact and did not action our reservation request until he deemed "it is too late to cancel," which now was at our expense. All in all, we stayed here in order to make the most of our non-refundable money. We received terrible service and will not return. I would encourage people to find other accommodations.
눇The location is fine. The rooms are not bad but not great either. Breakfast was tolerable, and relatively cheap (not included with room price though led to believe that).

눉There is no staff on site. If you have any needs, the owner (only staff) has to be contacted via phone and by a German phone number (he did not answer my out-of-country phone number). He is very friendly but rather elderly and accidentally booked my stay in the wrong month. He said he would make it right but was not around in order to do so. No comfortable chair in the room. I was given a small room and was only given a large one upon verbal request (although i requested a large room on my booking.com request).
눇The bed was very comfortable. I had room 4 which was large. The room had a large bathtub and a large bathroom. There was plenty of storage and hanging space for clothes.

눉We arrived to find a handwritten sign in German on the door telling us to call a phone number. Fortunately our grandson had international calling. The owner who lives elsewhere came in a short time while we waited in the car. He wanted payment that night for 3 nights. We were told we had to park in a garage and pay 8.50 euros a night because the fire dept didn't allow parking in front of the hotel. However, cars were parked there during our stay. The faucets in the bathroom dripped and the shower curtain around the step in shower was so short that the water sprayed out all over the floor. The room was on the 4th floor in the attic with a spiral staircase to go up. This was a pain with all our baggage. This really was more like a B and B with no regular staff around most of the time. There was an ancient TV in the room which did not work along with some of the lights. The owners are older and may need to find some younger folks to get this place back on track.
눇This place is cute and decorated in a nice way. It was clean and the beds were comfortable . It is close to the downtown and a good bakery is close by if you prefer not to pay for a breakfast at the hotel.
