For the name Mövenpick expected more.

  • December 2013
The hotel is right by the station and therefore very central. Only stayed for a short stay and we noticed it. The last room on the floor, where all the ventilation systems in the room were, you could not be turned off. The decor in the room was very dated, 80 ger years style, but at the front desk modern. For the name Mövenpick we expected more. read hotel review

  • Room

    The booked superior room (see pictures) was in our eyes big enough and with the for a city tour necessary ' comfort ' like for instance safety deposit box. Minibar and air conditioning, we did not needed. The room cleaning there was no reason to complain. Despite the hustle and bustle around the hotel (main train station and the pedestrian zone), it is in the room itself at least with the window closed quiet. Otherwise there is one before the decision windows and noise or alternatively the air conditioning to use.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    The breakfast was hearty and with enough selection of cold and warm meals, on request, they got a omelets or fried eggs freshly prepared. The hotel itself is also ' jimmy's bar ' in which you the conclusion of a day in a pleasant ambience spend can. Also 'internal' is the restaurant handelshof which we outside the breakfast however not taken into account have.

  • Location
    6.0

    The Mövenpick Hotel in food in our opinion due to the optimal location the perfect choice for a city tour. It is located directly opposite the main railway station and at the beginning of the long pedestrian/shopping. In the same building is also the checking-in building. The stop for the buses of the city tours is less than 20 meters away. Due to the direct location in the pedestrian area has the hotel itself no parking, but the garage akazienallee (1 0 €daily fee) is just 150 meters away – a (small) credit to the parking is at the front desk of the hotels available.
