2001 A Space Odyssey
Posted Sep 11, 2015 on Hotels
I suppose this is the future of mid-range hotels. The room was large, modern and with a balcony. (No filters for the coffee maker though!) Check-in was all done through an automatic kiosk; no human contact. In fact, except for checking out, when there was someone at the desk who called us a cab, we did not see another human being associated with the hotel in three days. I felt a little like the astronaut in 2001, a Space Odyssey, dealing with HAL. I imagine that younger guests might not feel as strange. It was a moderate walk from the Altstadt, but the actual neighborhood, although not unattractive, seemed pretty sterile.
