We arrived late at this hotel and driven past it once already because it doesn't impress from the outside. However, when we decided to go in and take a look at the room, we were delighted! We chose a family room which had a massive fold out sofa bed and a king size bed, everything was brand new and extremely comfortable. The receptionist was very friendly and gave us all the information that we required. The room even had it's own Tchibo coffee machine, dvd player, iphone dock and many other surprising appliances. They even allow you to borrow dvd's from reception for free. The welcome basket of fresh complimentary apples in reception was also a nice touch.
We had a very nice sleep and in the morning we were impressed by the display at breakfast which included many different types of bread, homemade muesli, meat, fruit etc ... the only thing i didn't like was the fact that the boiled eggs were cold.
Overall, this hotel is aiming to please and in a very good location but parking is a 5 min walk away. I would stay here again but would prefer not to pay as much as 150 euros a night as i think this was a little steep.
