We really enjoyed our stay at Plattenhof. It's a very cool, funky place in the university area. It isn't right in the centre, but an easy walk down through interesting streets of the old part of town to the river/main shopping areas. It is very conveniently located to the Kunsthalle museum. There's also a tram that takes you from the...

Having read the dec 2006 review, "think college dorm" after booking the plattenhof I was a bit apprehensive on arrival! I needn't have been as the hotel really worked for us.

Mixed bag of plusses and minuses...but the quality of the room makes this a two in our book. Staff Very helpful in all respects.

We liked the Plattenhof. It is just up the hill from the main part of town, with a convenient trolly stop nearby. There is a nice little market across the street. It is quiet at night and they provide robes in the room (unusual for a three star place). The breakfast was excellent and the staff very pleasant and helpful.

The hotel is very close to the university buildings but not very convenient for sightseeing. However, a direct tram line goes to the center. My room was clean and modern. Friendly reception staff. Cold buffet breakfast of average standard. Some noise from corridors and neighboring rooms.
