I really liked the location of the hotel - in a proximity to the congress centre where I was attending a meeting. My first impression was of a cosy place and it would remained such if there were not the horrible noises from the kitchen early in the morning. My room was located on the first floor and apparently there was no sufficient noise isolation on the floor. Otherwise very friendly staff, nice breakfast and clean rooms. If you book a room there, make sure to get a room on one of the other floors.
Just blocks from the Hauptbahnhof in Bremen in a quiet neighborhood of beautiful homes. The rooms were lovely. The staff was more than willing to help. The breakfasts had everything you could want. What an amazing find. If you’re tired of corporate hotel chains and want old world style and comfort at a very reasonable price stay here
We drove in to Bremen on the autobahn, and as we approached the city there was a lot of road construction which delayed us over 2 hours of gridlock and very slow traffic. I had searched GPS in the car for a hotel to stay at, however there is a fine for driving in the no vehicles area of the old town and this hotel seemed in the heart of it. We did finally locate that hotel but it was on the edge of the old town and absolutely no place to park. I drove out a mile or so and then stopped to locate another place...the Hotel Residence came up and was only a mile away. The Hotel Residence is absolutely the the Best location- very quiet residential neighborhood, two blocks from the train station (for train travelers convenience) and 5 blocks from the old town. Best comfort- old former private residence with classy furniture and rooms. Best service- very friendly and helpful ladies run this place. Best price- very reasonable room price (114 euro) includes breakfast and off street parking. Best breakfast - absolutely the best breakfast we have ever had in Europe, so good and plentiful choices of delicacies hot and cold, served up in a beautiful breakfast room with window views and very nice decor. We really loved this place and the staff that run it. They even allowed us to leave our car parked in their lot until 5 pm on our check out day so we could stroll the old town some more. Please note: there is no air conditioning in this old building. We arrived on a very hot summer day, so the our room was too warm even opening the large windows didn't help. The staff here was wonderful and supplied us with a fan for the room which cooled it very nicely. I very highly recommend this place for a stay in Bremen. To the staff at Hotel Residence: THANK YOU for the wonderful stay!!…
Cosy family hotel. What we missed when we booked our room was that there was no air condition. It’s was the hottest summer ever so it was quite necessary to have one. However, the staff gave us the ‘coolest’ room that was available so it was ok for a night stay. There’s a wide variety for breakfast and everything was freshly prepared. Unfortunately, since it’s summer and a very hot one ever and yet the beds were fitted with thick quilts. It’s enough with just flat sheets during summer months. Blankets can be available instead if needed. I mentioned this at checkout time. But the only reply I got was - we are crazy Germans. We do this the whole year round!!
The hotel has very good location for Bremen. Very close for the city center and the train station. We stayed on roof top floor and the room is very good decorated..but.. there is no any elevator and if I will stay here again, I won't choose this room only for this reason. The breakfast is average, because if you woke up a little bit late, may be after 8:00, the choices of your breakfast will be very limited..
