    - poor and cheap furniture and equipment in the rooms (we stayed in 2d building, not main) - "free parking" means you will try to find the place for your car on the streets near hotel - wi-fi by password which you need to collect in main building

    - good breakfast (as for German's hotels) - good internet access (wi-fi)

    Hotel have main facility and side facility. Side facility is not the newest and have warn up overview. Some rooms are small and some rooms are bigger. Breakfest at the hotel buffet was average, not much to choose.

    Good location in historic building, late check-in, free parking, quiet place near the center of Hof, easy to continue trip. Hotel main facility have a very good restaurant for dinner with national food and good choise of beers. Price was good.

I was a bit late to my check out but they didn't mind and allowed me to gather my things and prepare for my trip back in peace.

    I stayed at one of the guest rooms opposite the street of the main hotel building. My room was small with a very narrow bed. My pillow was directly near the door which is absolutely not sound-proofed; one can hear even the lightest steps or softest talks in the corridor just outside as if people were in the room! Disappointing breakfast. Most annoyingly, internet wasn't working and they were unable to fix it in 48 hours! The excuse was that the routers didn't work after a storm and they were going to reset them – at any rate there was no internet during two days, which to me seems unprofessional.

    The staff was friendly and the facilities reasonably clean.

    Breakfast is typically small- bread sausages, cheese, boiled egs. Wifi works very well in some rooms, but in some there is no signal at all....

    On check in the room was cold. Despite turning the radiators up to max it never really warmed up by the time we left. Rads are probably not strong enough to heat the space. The free WIFI did not work at all during our stay. Future guests should be aware of potential traffic noise and our curtains were too thin to stop a significant amount of light coming through.

    Free parking was a definite plus for this town centre location. The hotel also has a very good restaurant and breakfast was very good with plenty of choice.

    Although they say you don't need to book parking place in advance, it's better to do so. I came quite late and there was a problem with finding a parking place. Finally I had to park in a narrow backyard which wasn't very comfortable.

    The weather has been very warm and it would be helpful (in the absence of air conditioning) to have a fan in the room.

    I prefer to stay in hotels that reflect the local culture, belong to a family or local owner, and maintain a distinct character against the corporate monochrome. I have stayed at the Hotel Strauss under various owners in the last 30 years and I found it to be very comfortable and quiet (although there are a couple of bars across the street that stay open late.) The food in the outdoor garden was good, the breakfast generous and the staff very friendly.

    It was saying it should be free parking available, but when we came - both places were busy. Anyway I parked my car by blocking other two and asked to call to my room when anyone want to drive away. So, I was happy with this solution and therefore it's tiny minus.

    Very good location, rooms a bit old-fashioned, but bathroom and beds are completely ok. Nice one to stay for reasonable price. Wifi is a bit tricky to setup, but anyway it was working fine in our family room.
