    AVOID! Hotel was more like a Motel 6 or youth hostel... very low quality especially for the price. Even simple things like cups in bathroom and shampoo weren’t provided. Shower head was clogged ... so lousy water flow ... and hair dryer didn’t work. Cheap plastic toilet seats and waste baskets. No air conditioning. Internet was ~2 mps...slowwwww! Provided a unique network login that didn’t work in multiple devices. So real pain to use. Hotel is located in an industrial district...nothing to see around it.

    Staff was friendly Washed large tub of clothes for us fr 5 euros

    No kettle/tea/coffee facility in room. No coathangers in wardrobe. Trying hard to fault it, but can't!

    Very friendly and spotless. Big modern room. Hotel on modern, interesting industriezone, so quiet at night with excellent Italian restaurant on ground floor, and good quality snackbar/imbiss close by during daytime. Easy free street parking. Easy access to Altstadt and motorways. Difficult to criticise.

    The unfriendliest receptionist I have ever encountered anywhere in the world - except maybe Fawlty Towers. I found it rather funny but others may feel insulted. The hotel is quite a ways out of town but with a car that's okay.

    Budget alternative to much more expensive hotels in the city centre. Comfortable and clean rooms.

    Breakfast was at a different, often inconvenient time each day. We were touring by 8AM each day and breakfast was usually later. Shower was not very big, but was fine. A bit of a hike to the tram.

    Clean, quiet, comfortable beds. Heat was fine for December. Water was hot for the shower! Restaurant in the same building is quite good; pizza, Italian offerings in particular.

    Check-in ends at 10PM, and Booking.com does not warn about this. We arrived at 10:40PM, and luckily, the receptionist had decided to wait for us. Do not expect anything fancy - it's just a place to crash for a decent amount of money.
