This is a really great hotel, situated in a quiet residential street of quality houses and apartments, within walking distance of the city centre. It is well appointed, lovely rooms and polite and helpful staff. We found that for the quality it is very reasonably priced.

German literary heavyweight Wolfgang v. Goethe, who counted the title of "Geheimer Rat" (roughly: Privy Councilor) amongst his many honors, would have surely approved of this hotel, the name and interior of which makes reference to Goethe but stops short of actually calling out his name. Located in the leafy neighborhood of Magdeburg-Stadtfeld this historic building has nice, tastefully appointed...

We were visiting my wifes sister who lives about 20 miles from this hotel. I must say we are very pleased with the room, staff and the hospitality they showed us. The room was excellent, food was very good. Safe and secure hotel We will be back next year.

A taxi from the main railway station to the hotel cost me 10 euros but I later found that I could walk the distance in about 25 minutes. I was impressed with the hotel and its tree lined surroundings. My room was on the very top floor and was well finished. I could get CNN English language broadcasts on the...

Last year we picked Magdeburg and this hotel, primarily because it was more or less half way on the route from Denmark to Austria. We really enjoyed our one night stay back then and decided to take the chance to stay here once again travelling back from Austria. In contrast to last year there were no family rooms available (these...

Please with the location on this tree lined street with a park just out, as our family lives on the same street. The room was nice, clean and quiet with a nice view of the area around us. About a 15 minute walk from the main train station and an easy walk to the tram line. Great breakfast.

Excellent location of the hotel. Quiet area. Very good restaurant with excellent food. Good service. In case of very hot days the lack of air conditioning might have been a problem - but this is the only minus to find.

Free parking is advertised for the hotel. In reality it is a small 6 or 7 car parking lot. If you don't get there early enough reception directs you to find more "free parking" on the street. Good luck finding a spot. The old East Germany may have had lots of parking available due to lack of cars but that...

We were staying in the hotel while visiting friends who lived a few streets away. It was ideally located for walking to their house and included breakfast in the price, which is why we chose it over another hotel round the corner which was actually opposite our friends' apartment. We were given what must be one of the best rooms...

This is where my wife and I usually stay when we visit my parents (who live nearby) and leave the kids with them. It's a basic - actually mid-range - hotel. As it is a combination of several early 20th century buildings, there are very different shapes and sizes of rooms. Furniture is always basic hotel stuff, so is the...
