    Good location for Filharmonie, not very comfortable bed, noisy road.

    • Stayed 1 night

    The bathroom is ok in size, but the door should be a sliding door. It hit the sink and blocked half of it, unless you almost sat on the toilet before closing the door, so you could use the rest of the bathroom. The bed was extremely hard, no comfort on this mattress and the pillow was a lump of foam in a duvet cover. I had back, neck and headache in the morning. Invest in a little more comfort in the beds. Road was very noisy, no way to sleep with open window.

    The staff at check-in was friendly. Nice welcome. I cannot comment on food, I had no breakfast.

    Modern and Comfortable Stay in Filderstadt

    • Stayed 1 night

    We were in the bigger room with two beds. Very modern, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was of good size and clean. Located on a busy street the noise was a little loud at times but I assume that was what the complimentary ear plugs were for. We liked the secure front door and the feeling of safety that it provided since the front desk is not always staffed. Location was perfect for us being located so close to the S-Bahn. Would definitely consider this place again for value, location and comfort.

    This hotel is surrounded by sex shops and peep shows. The carpet in the room had multiple stains and the beds were atrociously uncomfortable. I was traveling with my husband and we had two twin beds with rock hard mattresses and one sad pillow each. The checkout procedure was also very inefficient and added 20 minutes onto checkout in the morning as there was a huge line and no automatic option. If you have the desire to stay in the red light district but sleep like Hansel and Gretel, than this is your place

    This hotel is very convenient to the Hauptbahnhof and the internet worked very well

    I was charged 135 Euro per night. It was not worth it. The doors didn't had locks, had to keep my luggage next to door for blocking it. room was so clumsy that couldn't feel comfortable, not enough spacious. Allotted room on 2nd flr, no elevator so had to carry my luggage. Don't understand how Booking.com had rate Hotel Merlin as excellent. I believed on your ratings and was not satisfied with it.

    This is not a real hotel. More like a B&B but not a very good one. No lift, breakfast very dull and reception just at certain hours so if you arrive before or after you cannot go in and have to wait on the street.

    Possibly staffs know which points to be improved for future, but the problem is most of German has no idea about what service is, so that no drastic improvement can be expected.
