    No air conditioning but a fan was in the room. Reception staff leaves at 10 but key was ok for the outside door. Staff know some English but are not fluent.

    Right by the attractions I wanted to see. Good breakfast. Helped with ordering a taxi, etc. No big crowds to fight and I felt safe travelling alone.

    The hotel had a free spacious car park situated at the rear of the property as the front went directly onto the pedestrianised main street. When we arrived the window in our room wouldn't shut and they moved us immediately. There were plenty of restaurants and bars within a very short walk but you were not bothered by any noise.

    Hmmmmm.... slight odor in the hallways ---- minimal "dislike" ---- doesn't really count in the tally/consideration.

    LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: This is a wonderful location right on the Market Plaza with free parking in the rear. Altho' the staffing at the desk is not 24/7, the key opens the door whenever you want. The bed(s) are comfortable, the bathroom is updated and very modern, the single bedroom a bit bigger than usual German singles. --- the cleanlineness is exceptional. After four days of breakfasts at other places, I I was getting tired of the plentiful though similar breakfasts --- but the breakfast here was better ... MUCH more fresh fruit cut up, huge loaves of bread to slice, plentiful amounts of different jams, the crackers and cheese, PLUS the eggs, cereal, cold cuts, rolls, etc. that make up the German gala breakfast. There was an unusual odor in the hallways but nothing distasteful --- just a bit unusual. BUT you can't beat the location, you can't beat the cleanliness, you can't beat the parking situation, and an elevator to boot! But the location --- open the door and you're right in the marketplace with the rathaus facing you and the plaza to explore. I really enjoyed the experience of feeling safe and comfortable, well-fed and tourist- ready1 I recommend this hotel to you .... go for it!

The staff was nice and let us put our bags in a closet since we arrived way before check-in so we could explore the city without our bags. Especially great hotel for those interested in Martin Luther! (the wall decor revolved around him)

    The bathroom in our room was perfectly functional but not as spotlessly clean as I would have liked. Dark hallways with a bit of a musty smell connect the rooms, but the rooms themselves and the reception area are very nice.

    Wonderful location, steps from the central square of Wittenberg old town. Schlosskirche very close by, and about a 15-20 min. walk to the Lutherhaus on the other end of the old town. Very pretty room with exposed brick and hardwood floors, large windows. Ours was at the corner of the back of the hotel, so we had windows on 2 sides. One, unfortunately, overlooked carpark, but we had a nice view of the Schlosskirche spire over the town rooftops in the other direction. Friendly staff who allowed us to leave our car in the carpark while we went to see a few more sites after checking out in the morning. So nice to have on-site parking that was not impossible to get in and out of!

    This was the perfect place to stay when I attended a conference in Wittenberg. The room was clear, comfortable, and quiet. Very comfortable bed, towels changed every day. Quirky old building in an old city, with nicely renovated and tended rooms. Breakfast has a good selection ranging from yogurt to sliced meat to a variety of breads and jams. Plus good coffee. My room decor was all about Martin Luther, which seemed fitting for Wittenberg. Great location between the two main churches, just a few blocks from Luther's House, next to Cranach's house. I would stay there again.

    This is not a dislike as much as a note for tourists. This is a small town, many shops have open hours of 10 to 2 on Saturday, many shops are closed on Sunday as is typical of this area. Shop first, sight-see later! The tub / shower requires some flexibility to enter (stepping up and over the tub edge to get in). Just something for guests with limited mobility to consider.

    This is an excellent location just a few buildings away from the main town square of Wittenberg-Lutherstadt. The town looks just as you would imagine, with little shops, excellent bakeries, friendly restaurants within feet of the front door. The breakfast at the hotel is very good, worth the small charge.

    Main train station is about 1.6 km from the hotel. If you're arriving by train, try to get off at the Altstadt station, which is right behind the hotel. Most everything else was fine.

    The breakfast selection was very good with plenty of choices. The location of the hotel in the Altstadt was very good, making most key sites easily walkable. There was a good hotel restaurant and several other good restaurants within steps of the hotel.

    Could have told me how to find the parking lot for the hotel which was not the same as the address for the hotel. The hotel is on a pedestrians only street which meant that we could not drive there. Having the address of the Hotel Parking lot which was on a different street right behind the hotel would have saved us a lot of time and stress.
