This hôtel is special. The hotel is near the Dom (7 minutes walking distance), well managed., pleasant and reasonably priced. Most customers come back to this hotel again and again. Breakfast? The buffet is well presented, pleasing to the eye, with a nice variety of German food specialties. All of this + a nice staff makes this hotel special. It...

Very basic hotel. Small rooms. Still waiting for reception staff to smile. Close to main station wish may explained why rail staff stay. Friendly staff in breakfast room. Coffee was cold and the milk was on the turn. We stayed at the Eden Hotel fruh am dom the previous weekend and it was far superior

We stayed here while on a driving tour around Germany. The hotel is conveniently positioned with a public multi-storey car park nearby. The cathedral is a short walk away, as is the old town. The room was comfortable and clean, but the bathroom could have been better, I think the cleaner rushed the mopping that day. Our friends also stayed,...

Stayed with my mum and sister for the weekend. For this price range you really can't get any better. Hotel was immaculate. Breakfast excellent (hot and cold food, good coffee, nice staff). Small area to have drinks in the late evening if you'd like to. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, we were constantly offered Christmas biscuits/hot wine and...

This hotel is 5 mins walk from the main station. It is worth going to the opposite side than the more popular Cathedral area. Rooms were modern and typical size for Germany. Bed was comfortable with choice of Pillows. Wifi was brilliant all day and night. Breakfast selection was fantastic even better than the large hotel chains. With a reasonable...
