                  Efficiently run

                  I found the staff, particularly in the restaurant during breakfast, to be rather offhand. The staff at reception and cashiers were not very polite either

                  The location was convenient.Near a good shopping area as well as near the main railway station .

                  I found that the standard of the room and the communal spaces (lounge etc) more accurately represented by a three star category and consequently a bit overpriced. .

                  room was very quiet - so easy to sleep.

                  we were very hesitant at booking a Best Western Hotel as we didn't think that this brand was at the standard that we would like but it was ok

                  The location was excellent and over all it is a nice clean modern hotel.

                  The TV channels were all in German. Last time I stayed at this hotel there were lots of English channels and you had to pay alot to access English channels.

                  The staff and service was excellent. The room, although small, was very efficiently planned and the beds were very comfortable

                  I found the room small when compared to the cost per night.

                  Although the most expensive accommodation of our trip, this Hotel provided excellent comfort and space in our room in a city where all hotel accommodation is more highly priced than we are used to paying. As such, it was good value for money and most enjoyable.

                  With so many excellent facilities in the room, it was difficult to find directions for their operation & control. There was no guidance in the "Welcome" information on the tv & no apparent documention in the room stationery display. We eventually discovered a multi-lingual guide in a concealed drawer under one of the benches. It could have been better placed for early discovery & help.

                  Modern design of rooms, excellent location; welcome drink at the bar

                  Hotel lobby currently under renovation, bus this does not create any inconvenience, just that the hotel does not look very attractive when you enter it. Paid wifi internet for the class and price of the hotel was unpleasant supprise, however there was a possibility to use free wifi in a hotel room of the restaurant located opposite the street:) ashame for the hotel. Choise of brakfast was not bad but usually 4* hotels have better choise.

                  The location of the hotel is perfect, being very central but also quiet.

                  The rate is high.

                  central location, effecient staff, good room amenities

                  The hotel lobby was being renovated and if it was know would not have stayed there. Breakfast selection was a bit Spartan.

                  The restaurant was not very good, very limited selection, not so good for the money you pay.

                  Location and service was excellent

                  I don't think there were facilities like a gym was there?

                  The design of the room

                  The room was extremely cold and it was impossible to adjust the temperature.The breakfast and services weren't what you can expect in a 4 star restaurant. The hotel was being refurbished during the stay which a lot of noise and dust everywhere. The personal was very unfriendly. The room did not look superior at all!
