    It is so close to Wuppertal Hbf. But so many drunk people around that area. So I didn't feel so secure and comfortable. Because we were staying with our daughter.

    This is matter of opinion and to some extent personal preference but the overall décor could do with improving somewhat. Even some lighter colours would make a contribution.

    This is my go to hotel every time I stay in Wuppertal. It's right next to the Central Station, the beds are incredibly comfortable, the showers hot and powerful, the breakfast buffet (€7.50) is amazing, you get a free regional transport pass, the staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful, and you feel right at home.

    • Stayed 1 night

    Whole hotel looked very dated and tired. Room looked like it hadn't been updated since the early 80s. We were given twin beds with a table between them when I had specially requested a double bed. Bathroom was clean but looked tired. At breakfast we were given a thermos jug of coffee, which was cold, so we had to ask for hot coffee. Breakfast room was almost deserted and strangely, people with rooms on that floor kept traipsing through the breakfast room with suitcases while we were eating. No view from room window except of some rooftops. Wouldn't stay here again. My advice if you want to ride the Schwebebahn or visit Engels' house, do it as a day trip from Cologne or Dusseldorf, don't bother staying in Wuppertal.

    It's right next to the Schwebebahn (suspension railway). They gave us travel tickets for that & for public transport.

    Not easy to find the hotel if travelling by car. When we phoned the hotel for directions, the receptionist was unable to help much because she said she didn't know Wuppertal! However, she recommended a car park, a short distance away from the hotel. Unfortunately, this car park was closed on Sundays, so we had to move the car to a different car park the next morning. We found the pillows very flimsy. It would have been helpful to have spare pillows available. The surrounding area is very noisy at night.

    It was good to have free passes for the Schwebebahn. A good location if travelling by train. Plenty of variety on offer at breakfast. Lots of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. Reasonably spacious room for the price.

    The center of Wuppertal is currently still a bit of a mess, due significant to construction works. In the hotel, there is no issue if you keep the windows closed. You can not reallly get to the hotel by car: drive to the Sparbank Parkhaus instead and walk the last 200 meter. Parking in the parkhaus after 23.00 on Friday evening was however not possible anymore: the parkhaus was closed...

    I did not bother much but may other find useful to know that the hotel is next to a lot of building work going on in the street and during the weekend there are many people (drinking!!) on the street making lots of noise until early morning, so if you dont want to be woken this is not a hotel for you.

    The Location is excellent, only few minutes away from the main station and steps away from a mall where you'll find plenty of eating options, and with a Schwebebahn station right across the street with a free 3-days ticket for the Wuppertal Suspension Railway.
