Exceptional 10.0
The friendly and helpful stay make this place!
This is my second time staying here and I came back because of the wonderful staff and they were again amazing. So friendly, warm and welcoming, they make the place feel like a home away from home. Will be staying again next time I am in Bonn. The breakfast is super tasty with excellent bread selection and the showers hot and powerful. It's in a really convenient place, very close to restaurants, shops sights and easy to reach the World Conference Centre by public transport.

An old hotel in a great location
The hotel is quite worn out and very basic. No amenities, no toiletries in the bathroom, no view (at least not from my room). But it makes up for this with a fabulously central location and very friendly and helpful staff.

Dog Friendly!
I was with my "full family" and the front desk really like dogs! A very good buffet breakfast. Their own parking lot. WiFi worked well. And very close to old Bonn and Beethoven's birth house. The main trains station is also walking distance.
