Booking and check in was easy and as expected. The room was spacious and everything was clean and well functioning. The breakfast buffet was delicious and well made, with a great variety. Additionally the hotel offered a room where we could store our bicycles. We can only recommend this hotel. Not a five star hotel, but indeed a welcoming place, where rooms are not incredible expensive.
Great location right in the centre of the city. Plenty of great restaurants and places to visit. Sadly there is no hotel parking, so either pay for the city parking or try to find a spot. The room, towels, bedsheets and bathroom were all very clean and hotel appears to be very well maintained. Staff at the hotel was friendly and quickly checked us in and out when we left. We did not purchase breakfast at the locations since the hotel is very close to bakeries and cafes, which offer better options for lower cost. Main issue for us was the bed. It was not a comfortable sleep. Mattresses were hard and it resulted in not the best sleep. For the type of hotel, it offers good value..
Arrived latish to find reception shuts about 1900. Check in over the road at the Steinberger where, the reception staff knowing we were Kleine Sonne "guests", looked very much down their noses at us. Despite the glowing website, only the breakfast bar exists. No bar, gym, sauna and the ground floor smells of drains. The rather dingy hotel reminded me of a run down Polish hotel from the 1980's. Breakfast adequate. Grubby throughout And noisy neighbours.
Stayed for 4 nights last week as part of a group. Had to check in at the sister hotel across the road as reception was closed when we arrived. The hotel is in a good position near the square and tram stop but that means there can be a lot of noise. As there is no Air Con and if it's hot, there is no option but to have the windows open. The entrance, corridors and stair cases are dingy and smell strongly of cigarette smoke. Laundry trolleys are left in full view all the time, making it untidy. The room, bedding and towels were clean and the bed was comfortable but all areas are in need of refurbishment. The bathroom was tiny, the shower tray chipped and the room smelled of drains. On a good point, there was a reasonable choice for breakfast which was quite acceptable. Overall a very disappointing hotel.…
The wi-fi is still dismal. You get on for anything from 2 minutes to 10 and then you're kicked off. And don't bother trying to force a reconnect, you have to wait for it to let you back on in its own sweet time. There was no other wi-fi available within range of my room on the second floor that I could utilise instead. The hotel itself is a pretty typical 3 star, although the soap dispenser in the shower wasn't filled, which might have proved inconvenient under other circumstances. Ideally shower cubicle would be bigger also. The location is actually fantastic, a stones throw from the Rathaus and just a short walk to the pedestrianised heart of the city centre where the lovely University building is located.The staff were helpful and I was able, thank god given the heat, to leave my backpack in the luggage storage when I arrived some 5 hours before my actual check in time.…
Nice hotel near the market square and tram station (just 1 minute by foot). Clean and cozy. Big beds. Friendly staff. The only bad thing is poor Wi-Fi connection. However, you can use free Wi-fi in a hotel across the road.
Reasonable prices room (for two) right near the square. We were able to walk everywhere. Unfortunately with no AC you need to leave the windows open (especially in August when so hot!). I tossed and turned all night because of the various outdoor sounds, then come 6am the sounds of others (many were yelling). The towels were small but we had enough for the two of us and everything was clean. The staff at the front was very nice and helpful.
Upon arrival my Air Berlin Frequent Flyer card was very carefully examined and I was informed that it was not a credit card! Wow, go figure I never would have imagined this and the quality of the visit only went down from there. Upon arriving in the room, itself which was prepaid I found that the room was very, very tiny. Hardly room to turn around and I had booked the room for 2 people. Sort of hard to tell how big the room actually was since there was only a very minimal amount of light coming from the one bed side light that worked. The switch by the door never turned anything on or off the entire dreadful weekend. There was a window but it opened onto a very dreary and dreadful alley looking area which never seemed to get much sun. The bath area was also tiny but at least it was reasonably well lit. No room to move around though. Also, in the shower there was no place to place soap or other items. There was a dispenser of some sort of universal soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. But, no place to set a container of soap or a sponge while showering. Last but not least there was the bed. Undoubtedly THE most uncomfortable hotel bed I have ever slept on. Could well have been filled with hay. And, to go with the room it was tiny. Complete with one tiny pillow and one tiny duvet pro person. Very poor sound insulation between rooms to help round out the package. Upon check-out I was informed by the ever professional staff that I owed yet another 4+ Euro for something called "loggia" was the best I was able to understand. I assume I might have been able to pay for this with my Air Berlin card but eventually it was removed from the bill which had already been prepaid. Never again and no I did not even get any frequent flyer miles. Not really an issue because after taking one shower I found that the towel was tiny and not much use for drying ones body.…
This hotel was central located and was good, but there was no Wi-Fi at the hotel, even though it says so on their homepage.The breakfast was good, but maybe a bit pricey. They could only serve two kinds of drinks at the bar and they were additionally ready mixed, nothing they maked by themselves and then I think they were too expensive. The room we had you could hear noise from the tram outside and bad blackout curtains.So you will wake up early.
This is a well located and quiet hotel for visiting Rostock and the surrounding areas. The single rooms where very well appointed and comfortable, although one of the two rooms was a little dark. The breakfast here is slightly expensive but walk the 5 mins to the main square and have a hearty breakfast buffet at cafe Alex (< 7 Euros)
