    The room! I didn't want to stay there and felt depressed; asked if there were nicer rooms. Was told by staff that they were refurbishing rooms upstairs, but that none were yet available (then I saw a couple descend from there, so don't know if that was true). Bathroom was extremely small, dark, and depressing - couldn't make myself take a shower in there. The room was ok for having a place to sleep, but otherwise was not at all nice to be in.

    Location near the train station was good (although couldn't find the hotel initially and overpassed it.) Breakfast was good.

    Clean and comfy, close to the train station
    • Business trip

    • Single Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The room doors/walls are a bit thin, so if you have noisy neighbours or people shouting in the hallways, you'll hear them. Not the hotel staff's fault though. There is no elevator, which didn't bother me, but just a notice for anyone with mobility issues... The doors to the staircase are a bit tight and open into the staircase, which I wouldn't want to deal with in a fire emergency or something.

    Hotel was clean, cozy and very close to the train station (since Gießen is rather small, this isn't such a bad thing like in bigger cities). 'Downtown' and the Uni are about 10 mins by foot. Nice breakfast, and the wifi works great. I would stay here again and would recommend it.

    When I arrived at the hotel, the front of the hotel was under renovation, and it blocked the view from my window. However, given that this is a temporary circumstance and is unavoidable if you want to improve the hotel, this minor dislike was not reflected on my evaluation of the hotel
