    All great no criticism!

    The breakfast was traditional, ample and home-made. The rooms were super comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful. The location is exceptional under the Cathedral and opposite the town hall.

    Couldn’t adjust the room heating so we were way too hot even though it was zero outside.

    This is a brilliant location a few steps from the Ulm cathedral and Christmas market. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful.

    Our room faced the street and was quite noisy although the windows were closed. Sound-proof windows would be a good investment. There wasn't any space in the car park next to the hotel when we came back from an excursion on Saturday evening. That was a bit stressful.

    The beds were extremely good, the room very nice, the bathroom extremely beautiful and the breakfast delicious! There was even a rain shower!

    room temp was not adjustable and traffic outside of the first floor window was too loud to open windows for the night. Otherwise, all was great.

    When booking, we ticked the field for "quiet room" but were allocated a room giving right onto the main throughfare. Upon request, we were changed to a more appropriately situated room. The rooms freshly renovated (some work in the hallways still in progress) have a glassed door to the bathroom, i.e. the bedroom cannot be sufficiently darkened during the night.

    Centrally located. Good breakfast buffet.

    A good sized room with a comfy bed. Large bright bathroom with nice towels & toiletries. The air conditioning was appreciated as it was very hot outside. Situated on the edge of the cathedral square it was central for all the shops & a short walk to the river Danube

    nothing really... The hallways were a bit grey and could use some color... but that is personal taste.

    The hotel is superbly located, just opposite from the Minster. The checkin was quick and easy. The rooms are spacious and provide all necessary comfort. The staff was curteous and overall nice. We traveleld with a baby and a baby bed was provided upon arrival, which was very nice. I liked that the hotel called the night before and reconfirmed the reserved room. Breakfast hours were very comforting. On Sunday until 11am. Food was fresh and plentyful including freshly baked rolls, croissant and pretzels. Fresh juices were provided and assorted coffee specialies available via machine. Even shortly before closing times, the breakfast buffet had been restocked regularly so that nobody had to miss out on anything. Prices were OK. Given the location certainly nothing to complain about. Highly recommended.

    Very hot room with no airco. There was a fan, but that barely helped. There is much of noise outside, continuining until late, so leaving the window open was also not pleasant. One thing to be alert for: If you check "need parking space" when booking the accomodation, a charge of 12 Euro per night is added automatically. However, the parking is public (the hotel does not have parking of its own), with its own check-out, so if you are not careful you end up paying twice for the same parking.

    Very convenient location, right next to the cathedral. Luxurious breakfast. Spacious room. Reliable WiFi.
