Location isn't great for public transport, a mile plus from the main station and no U/S bahn nearby. No less, nothing wrong with a nice walk. Check in slightly weird, bizarre conversation about requiring a negative covid test. Not sure if it is a requirement of the hotel, brand, operator, or city/land. However it was resolved to the satisfaction of all. Was told my room was a double upgrade, however not familiar with this hotel or the brand so can't comment on the difference. Room was a very good size with plenty of storage. Bathroom was a bit weird: there were two large industrial bottles of shower gel and shampoo. No soap/face soap on the sink. Had to take the large bottles in to the shower. It didn't feel a particularly premium product for a Crowne Plaza let alone a double room upgrade. As usual in Germany pillows were little more than a bean bag, and I couldn't find any more spares in the room. Again two small pillows didn't feel like a premium hotel/premium room product. Tea and coffee facilities in the room, but in a cupboard with a bit of a contortionist act required to plug the kettle in. Plenty of tea/coffee but only two milks, again a more common thing in Germany rather than this chain/hotel. Despite my moans I'd stay again and would plan to address the issues with reception, e.g. more pillows.

Dear n37077, thank you so much for being our guest and for taking the time to give us your detailed feedback. We are very sorry, that our COVID-19 meassures are reducing a bit of the common standard these days. The negative tests has to be provided from travellers comin or travelling trough risk areas, because of the government decisions. I´m happy to hear you could resolve the problem immediately. Wonderful that you were pleased with the room size and the storage possibilities. For sustainability reasons we have now big shower gel and shampoo bottles to refill instead of little amenities. If you need anything else let the reception staff know and we will provide it for you. Same goes with the pillows. You can also let us know in advance by your preferences in your booking. We are looking forward to see you again and prepare everything as you prefer. Warm regards Sarah Behncke Asst. Director of Sales

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times and was always very happy with the quality of service. However I booked a 3 night stay for May 2020, which I then cancelled in April after learning that the hotel was closed due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Still waiting for a refund some 4 months later, although on the IHG website it specified refunds would take a maximum of 90 days from date of cancelation, yet all I'm receiving is apologies from the hotel for the length of time it is taking them to process the refund. Very disappointed that this Crowne Plaza hotel is not living up to the IHG reputation for good ethical behaviour or demonstrating "Die feine hanseatische Art".... When comparing that to a non IHG hotel that I booked a stay with in Cyprus for June, which regrettably also had to be cancelled due to Covid -19 travel restrictions, where I received my refund within 2 weeks of cancelation, I now know which establishment deserves my respect and loyalty...

Dear Peter, thank you very much for your feedback. I´m awefully sorry, that you have been waiting so long for your refund. Unfortunately we were closed much longer than expected and just reopend in June. As a franchised hotel of IHG our accounting belongs to the owner company and not to IHG. Those were also closed during the COVID-19 shut down in Germany, that´s why the whole administration for 3 month of refunds takes a little longer. Nevertheless I totally understand your concern. Please know that we forwarded your feedback and hope to refund the money as soon as possible. I know it´s disappointing to hear, but we are really trying our best to be as quick as possible here. Warm regards Hannes Dreher General Manager

The hotel is a 15 min walk from the central train station. You’ll pass many bars and restaurants on your way. The shopping area is about 30 min walk away from the hotel. We normally walked every day. The hotel itself is located in a quiet area. Maybe due to road constructions and Covid-19 , so I’m not sure if it’s always quiet around the neighborhood. We had a room on the third floor, which was spacious and clean. The bathroom was a little bit tiny to my feeling and we also didn’t like the small blankets. We prefer a big blanket. Couldn’t really checkout the bar/restaurant due to the limit operations. Only open for 2 hrs on specific days. So you are a bit limited in choices for redeeming drink vouchers. I really like the staff at the reception, they were very friendly and helpful to us.

Dear jordyt117, thank you so much for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you liked the location of our hotel and that you were satisfied with your hotel room. Our reception staff will be glad to hear that you appreciate their kindness. During Corone the demand for our bar/restaurant shrinked a bit that´s why we chose to limit the operation hours until the demand increases again. I´m sorry for the inconvenience you´ve had because of that. Hopefully the next time you´ll stay here our bar will operate the normal hours. Warm regards Hannes Dreher General Manager

Was here for official purpose and hence stayed for just a night. The ambience and the staff were good and I guess the place was renovated as it had that new and refreshed interior feels. The place is a bit far from the town center and therefore would have been more delighted if they had more menu options. However the morning breakfast was good. Overall I liked the place for the comfort it provided.

As a meeting planner, it is very rare that I actually get to be in a meeting during my travels. I visited this property in November of 2019 with a MICE Forum and had a truly delightful stay. The newly remodeled hotel is modern and trendy with spacious rooms and a great lobby atrium. I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner and was very satisfied with the creativity and healthy options provided at every meal. Being pregnant meant that the service staff was beyond kind to me and I never once had to get a beverage during the buffet meal. They were so kind. My room was a bit small, but the large bathroom made up for it as I could unpack all of my belongings and spread out. I love the tile in the lobby bar and the meeting spaces were comfortable and creative. Check out my photos on Instagram @eventsbyJuls and find a link to my blog for more about this property!
