I have stayed here 3 times, each stay for 4 nights/5 days, in Nov 2011 and Jan 2012. Everything is so dark in this hotel! On the whole it's fine - rooms are quiet and clean, beds are comfortable, bathrooms are good so overall it's acceptable value for money. The first 2 times I stayed I had a huge room with a fully equipped kitchenette which was excellent. This time I have had a significantly smaller room and the kitchenette had no equipment in it at all to start with as the rules have changed from 2012. If you book your room as a 'hotel room' you will not get any kitchenette equipment. To get this, you must book as an 'apartment'. So watch out if you want to be able to self-cater.
There is one free-to-view English language movie channel which is a welcome relief to the usual BBC news / CNN / CNBC rolling news you are usually stuck with on German TV.
Breakfast is ok - expensive for what you get. The Italian restaurant which forms part of the hotel is excellent though- I have eaten there many times now and the standard of food is very high. The service can be a bit hit & miss, but don't let this put you off.
There's are free apples and a free-to-use coffee machine in the lobby for all residents which are nice touches.
Location wise, the Kanzler is on the train line between my office (near the DP tower) and central Bonn, so very convenient. I'm not sure how helpful this would be if you're not here for business though.
