The room was ridiculously hot and they couldn't turn the heating down. The shower went from hot to cold every few seconds. They told us breakfast was until 11am which was Sunday's only so we missed Monday. Area was a bit sketchy.

Great hotel and a roof top bar
The water tower's been beautifully redesigned into a hotel. Rooms and beds are super comfortable.The roof top bar is excellent. Can't wait to stay here again!

Disappointing for the price
Overall Wasserturn is an impressive building and the rooms are modern and clean. However our bathroom had a plumbing issue and despite repeated requests it wasn’t fixed during our stay, nor was an alternative option offered. Considering the prices are in the region luxury I would’ve expected a lot more. Also service in the Botanix bar was really poor, which was really disappointing given that this was a special birthday we were celebrating.

Where to start. Seemed as though every day had an unpleasant surprise. First day No AC. Staff came to room. Maybe this will fix it. Return after dinner. No AC. So they said those aren’t renovated rooms. AC doesn’t always work. So they moved us to a better room (appreciated) with good AC. By the way the front desk takes outside calls with lengthy questions. Phones don’t work in the rooms so if you have a problem take the elevator downstairs and stand in line. Showed up to breakfast next morning 9:30 (It ends at 10). Not much left. For example, one piece of melon left. No replenishment. New towels but indifferent cleaning and no water replenishment that day. Following day returned 9 pm. No cleaning at all. Towels on the floor. They got the supervisors to clean, provide new towels and replenish to water in the minibar. Ironically as we were about to leave final morning, room cleaner showed up. Hotel is in a strange area. 15 minute walk to lots of things but nothing useful close. By the way, the roof bar will always be open tomorrow. So we never saw it. I get it. Corona. Staffing problems. But we stayed at other chain hotels: a Radisson in Mannheim, a Hyatt in Mainz and a Hampton by Hilton in Kaiserslautern. (Visiting friends). All provided convenient stays without repetitive really unprecedented inconveniences. Boutique hotels did better.

Nice hotel, but service is lacking
The building itself and the interior are beautiful, and the concept is really cool. But the service is severely lacking. - Upon getting to my room, I was hoping to be able to make a coffee. The room comes with Nespresso pods... but no Nespresso machine. I had to get that from room service. - On Sunday night after returning from dinner, I asked the front desk what time the hotel bar closes. He said it was closed then, but it would be open every other night during my stay. Monday night I go to head up to the bar, and the elevator button doesn't work. Turns out the bar is actually closed for renovations... too bad, it looks great in the pictures. - On Monday, I left the "please clean room" sign on the door from 8:30am, and it was still there at 4:30pm when I returned to the room. No one cleaned, and we had to ask them to clean while we were away at dinner. - On Tuesday, we didn't leave the sign up, but they still didn't clean the room. Oddly... they had come in the room while we were away, and they left the key card, but they didn't actually clean. - Also on Tuesday, after having been at the hotel for 48 hours, they locked me out of my room. After going to the front desk, they said that I had only paid for two nights. I proved otherwise, and they said that someone had actually forgotten to check me in, and that it registered me as a no-show. How is that even possible?
