Quiet hotel, 15-20mins from the centre
Posted Sep 1, 2011
Stayed over the August bank holiday, and was one of only a few guests. Hotel very clean, decent facilities and would be ideal for a business trip. We went for a long weekend sight seeing and it was fine for that too. 40A bus stops right outside and takes 15-20 minutes to get to Schottentor U-Bahn. Buses run every 10-15mins, so easy access to city centre. Breakfast was ok, but hot food is obviously cooked 1st thing and left on warming trays til the buffet closes, so a leisurely breakfast at 10am is a little rubbery, but the cereals, breads etc are fine. Lack of customers did mean it lacked some atmosphere and you did feel that the staff at breakfast were just waiting for you to go so that they could get on with other things. Other than that, room was large with good views and the park over the road was a nice place to wander around. There's not much night life near the hotel as it is quiet residential area, but the easy access to the city meant this was not an issue.
