We've not always had good experiences with the Best Western brand. In fact, we jokingly call it "worst Western." However, this Best Western is truly very good. My spouse comes to Goettingen to work at the University, and the hotel is in walking distance. The last 2 times I've come along.
The desk staff is wonderful. On this trip, we have had a problem with the airline losing a bag and then, when it was delivered to the hotel, discovered it was broken. The staff have called the airline on our behalf to get the bag to us and then, have assisted in finding out what we need to do to get compensation.
The rooms are comfortable and spacious. We have one with the king bed, called a marriage bed, it's two twin mattresses next to each other, covered by the same bottom sheet, so there's a crack in the middle. We can't have feather pillows which are standard, but they have poly ones. There's a desk with a mini-bar and a small, flat screen TV. If you travel with movies on your laptop, the TV has a place for a cable so they can be watched from the TV. The bathroom is large, ours has a tub/shower besides the other usual bathroom amenities.
Breakfast is served every morning from 6:30 to 10:30 in the breakfast room in the lobby/reception area. It's the "traditional" German breakfast - nice rolls, fresh croissants, jam, meats and cheeses, warm hard boiled eggs, some hot sausage/eggs, cereal, milk, coffee, espresso, tea. There are some local spreads/sauces/condiments available.
The safe isn't working in our room. There's free, open WiFi in the rooms and throughout the building. There is no air conditioning, but they will give you a fan. So if you come in the summer, be prepared.
There's an attached Italian restaurant, Mazzoni, I'll review separately. But it's good and should it rain, can be reached through a connecting door.
Should you want to go to the city center, you'll need a taxi or take the bus. The hotel has bicycles to lend as well for exploring locally. There are shops, grocery, pharmacy, and restaurants within walking distance. less
