My husband had wanted to see the schwebebahn for 70 years and the Astor hotel could not be closer to the station, We spent a large part of our visit riding the schwebebahn and exploring the Wuppertal valley, including the Sculpture Park and lunch at the Brauhaus. It's a great area for walking - friendly people and lovely views.

This "hotel" is merely the upstairs bedroom of some guys house. And because it was so hot there at the time, the temperature was unbearable! We had to climb many sets of awkward stairs, through his house to get to the room, which by the way, was last furnished in 1982! Would never, ever stay there. We actually left the same day and found an actual hotel.

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a young man who barely spoke English. We finally conversed with him in French telling him that the first "comfort" room he offered us, tiny and ground floor out to the parking lot as it was, simply wasn't acceptable. So we were sent to the top floor.
The room on the top floor hadn't been cleaned at all. It was in appalling state and we were told that the maid had just gone home.
After a lot of back and forth we were given a room on the 3rd floor (corner room, bright and nice except for the 14 or so inch 10-15 year old square TV which was so small that from the bed we couldn't watch at all the German only programs of the 8 or 9 stations offered).
We always look for hotels with "high-speed Internet in all rooms" offer. This hotel knew (according to the front desk clerk) that the wireless Internet didn't reach beyond the 2nd floor. No word of that in any of their advertising. We ended up using our phones' Internet connection at a significant extra cost.
Overall, we definitely would not recommend this hotel to anybody. It was a bad experience.
