Traditional, pleasant hotel on a quiet side street

Posted Jun 5, 2016
Pros: The old building is nice but not as architecturally intriguing as the web descriptions.
Cons: Help with your luggage.
Location: The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the Dom and the central train station. Sometimes there are carnivals or festivals along the Rhine.
This is a very clean, very pleasant hotel on a quiet side street a block from the Rhine. It shares a neighborhood with private homes and lots of creative agencies and commissions. It has a small pleasant lobby, a well-decorated breakfast room. If you have lots of luggage, be aware that although there is an elevator to get to it you must go up a set of stairs. There is no porter. The staff were ok. I don't agree with other effusive reviews that characterize them as super nice and attentive. From my point of view, the clerk could be described as intimidating and I observed her being short with Asian visitors. The breakfast spread was broad and appealingly laid out. Everything was fresh. The coffee was ample but weak.

Great location & I was lucky to get the last free parking space. Disappointed that the room had not been vacuumed - fingernail clippings on the floor from a previous guest! Otherwise nice, quiet area but close to the river. Wifi OK but could be stronger

Nice hotel near the Rhine River

Posted Apr 12, 2016
Pros: The helpful staff, the elegance of the hotel, and the quiet location.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: The hotel is less than a block from the pedestrian river walk so a delight to walk to city center. Several fine restaurants are nearby.
Built originally as a museum for historic musical instruments, the conversion to a hotel thus incorporated a facility designed to have an aesthetically pleasing interior. Marble floors and elegant staircases make one feel is in a palace rather than a hotel. Located about a mile from the city center the hotel is in a very quiet residential quarter with numerous fine restaurants nearby. Breakfasts were a delight with a wide array of offerings. The room was most comfortable and immaculately clean.

Quirky Hotel with Great Character

Posted Dec 14, 2015
Pros: Ambience. Breakfast. Bathroom
Cons: Drink making facilities in the room or in a bar facility.
Location: A little remote. Close to the zoo. The Dom is about 20 minutes away by metro and walk. By the river, so a nice walk to the Dom that way.
The hotel is a little off the beaten track in that it is a little way from the centre. The Dom is a 25 minute walk away, the metro is a 10 minute walk (and then 5 minutes to the Dom). It is literally on the river, though a claim of a 'river view' from our room would be generous. The hotel has no other eating or drinking facilities except for a good breakfast buffet, so if you want a cup of coffee, but one before you get back to the hotel. You do get a mini-bar. There is an offer of a sandwich via room service, but it didn’t look too encouraging. There is mention of a lounge and bar, though there was no sign of one! The room we had was small and neat, with plenty of wardrobe space and the bathroom was modern, clean and excellent, with a shower, but not a bath. The hotel has quite a history, which is explained all over the place and is a revered architectural gem. There is a leaflet recommending good restaurants within walking distance. The staff are efficient rather than particularly friendly.
