If you stylish ambience with flair love and the associated 'old style' like, this is the hotel you are in a central location and close proximity to the beautiful old town of Celle very well cared for. The pool is very well-kept, the sauna is only for a maximum of 3-4 people to relax. The service is exzellent, the breakfast corresponds to the standards of the house. We have felt ourselves very well. read hotel review

    The breakfast (and i used) was without, if and but good, although if you have the 'customs' of fürstenhofes not know (etagere with high-quality standardfrühstücksangebot and roll basket are directly served at the table, scrambled eggs on request) - you risk, the buffet overly to operate, and the leftovers from the' assembly ' the etagere land in waste - a shame!

    Small, but fine single room, absolutely clean, furniture in the aforementioned 'old fashioned style'! Modern tv; The other visitors mentioned loudness, i must unfortunately confirm!

  • Service
    4.0

    Here i the most notable differences experienced: a very friendly, without being intrusive tranquil front desk, but approval, the no vote was: although i in the check out the only guest at the front desk was (so stress factor zero for the its service provided staff!), i didn't, but also nothing address had (because the cost of my organisation were) there was not the desire 'good trip home!' On the way, not even a 'goodbye!', of the usual question 'i hope, there were with us pleasurable?' To be silent completely. Such a receptionist in a hotel, for a 5 - star use complained, is an absolute ' no go!', and as the hotel boss in this forum famous, interested all comments to read, i am curious, what he has to say about it. Probably said the man at the front desk: 'the anyway never again, because as a member of a delegation!' This will on the one hand as mistake prove, and disregards the role of such guests as promoters... Only because of the very friendly lady at the arrival...

    Size and the condition of the rooms: Our room was tiny small, the width was 2.28 meter a room of this size should not more than than single rooms will be assigned, even then it would be a small single room (see photos). In the evening the beds were turned down. We were at this time in the room, we would have left or our bathroom have fled, to the staff for their work to make space. It was a napkin on the soil, the you because space (no 40 centimeter square next to the bed) fold had. The beds were only 80 centimeter wide (see photos)! The furniture were all at least 30 years old, chipped, worn, scratched, broken. The tassel at the curtains (see photos) were totally torn, the walls stained. In the room there was only a seating, a old chair, with a pillow, the obviously not the chair was (see photo). The pillows were very old and we didn't want to touch it, so disgusting we found it! The wallpapers separate, the baseboards were partly loose (see photos). The carpet was probably also from long past times, him decorate loud large heidschnucken on green reason. We were already in the dream of you is, it was ridiculous! The pillows are flat, old and thin. I had a headache. On the bedside table is a map, on the we fortunately could read, that the hotel various additional pillows offered. Also ability are listed (see photo). In confidence on the accuracy of this information, we ordered at the reception two ability. A half hour later, we got a bolster and a knubbelkisen (see photos), each in a fine pillow cases packed, delivered. Fits to overall standard: a lot of hot air! Ability seems it in the hotel not to give. The mattresses were so saggy, that tomorrow we had back pains. The window, which was very heavy and leaves barely opened (see video). Positive in the room: nice lamps, a very stylish bilderahmen Facilities: verkratzter desk, Bed 1.60 m 1 chair 1 more yellowed wardrobe a kofferbock Flat screen tv, only with difficulty (remote control reacts not, see video) Bathroom: The tiles in the bathroom were actually painted! Proof: see photo, the color solves spread out. The mirror solves from the wall (see photo), the silicone in the bath tub was stained (see photo) and there is only a shower curtain. The fixtures are older, so that the surface worn has Conclusion: no 5 star standard!

    Breakfast: Is offered a breakfast buffet with very low choice (no cheese, just a sort of brie with pepper, no smoked ham, no cooked ham, no salami, no hot food). We were mistaken seeking help on the buffet along, without the right to find. The bread selection is very poor. It consists of few partially overbaked, tiny rolls very poor quality. It suggests, that the bread aufgebacken will. Back at the table we discovered a silver etagere with about 3 slices of salmon, a slice of gouda, a slice of emmentaler, 3 disks fettester salami, 3 slices of smoked ham), a silver dish with a Croissant and 3 light, partially overbaked rolls. The amazed us very, because we not had ordered. However all guests receive these things. I think that is very bad, because we could not just finish, because we not everything liked and so the hotel for our leftovers either other guests re-offer or - even worse - throw away. It is not with food around. On 2. day refused we therefore adoption of the cake stand, which the staff obviously in severe distress brought. I found it very unseemly, the simply vorzusetzen. The hotel advertises a large country breakfast buffet, but it is more a dargereichtes breakfast. Warm courts could one order, however the scrambled eggs was very grisselig and not tasty and the nürnberger rostbratwürsten more cooked as fried and less than lukewarm. The boiled egg was too soft and the protein wobbly. The presentation of the frühstücksbüfetts leaves a lot to be desired. The meals are in ancient, partly broken cabinets, and rondellen offered. I think that in a 5 star hotel is laughable and inappropriate. The fresh fruit was only on the first day acceptable (pineapple, oranges, kiwis), on 2. day including brownish pieces of banana in a dark sauce. Small sweet, baked puff pastry gave it only on 2. day and they were an hour before the end of the buffets not more refilled. What still to notice it is, is, that there is no uniform dishes. Only dessert and soup were available at the buffet, no small schlüsselchen or plates. I think for a 5 star hotel inappropriate, help either the silver accessories not from the spot. The may also a treatment with silberputz use. Because the breakfast buffet we are not happy with and the hotel rooms were very disappointed, we did it, to eat in the hotel - although we were already at the check in pressed, for the evening to reserve a table. Actually, we had the also, but when we were in the room more toured, us the desire passed against. The buffet is served in the restaurant ' endtenfang' presented. It is very peaceful and you can feel at ease there. Conclusion: lots of noise for nothing.

    The hotel has a swimming pool and a gym. In the fitness room, it smelt very very bad sweetish, but the three fitnessgeräte (stepper, bike and treadmill) are intact and good quality. During the training allows you to watch tv. The pool is clean and had a good temperature. It is nothing special, but ok. The other facilities (sauna, etc.) we didn't use.

It is the variety of attentions and and also little things, the one stay in the fürstenhof to the experience and the 5 stars without reservation justify. Of course you have to the english charm like, decor. The hotel is located directly on the beautiful old town of Celle, in good 5 minutes on foot reached. Free parking is limited in front of the hotel, alternatively a pay garage. The zuweg to reception under the beautiful chestnut gives holiday feeling. Of course, you will to the room accompanied and there are some remarks to the house. The staff at the ... hotel are perfect trained, attentive, but never obtrusive. Our deluxe double room lay in the section behind the porch, well insulated from the sounds of the street. The facilities also again in the english country house style with wundrbaren lamps and curtains. Flat tv, mini bar available. Shoeshine on request (where it still). The bathroom was very tastefully, slight downside was the showers in the bathtub, as the entrance is very high. Air conditioning available, view was into the inner court to the gourmet restaurant. We had a meal in the tavern &Trattoria 'Palio'nentschieden and since it was a beautiful summer evening was, a table in the free one under the chestnut reserved. The food was perfect. Price-performance not appropriate. Here too, the trained staff be mentioned. Breakfast is a cross from buffet and set. The offer left nothing to be desired, also here attentive service. We enjoyed our stay and the hotel without any reservations recommend and come also defitinely again! read hotel review
