I have traveled quite a lot in Europe and the US and often uses BW hotels and motels because I could always count on them having at least a minimal standard, be clean (the worst were reasonably clean), etc. In Europe, my experience so far was that BW even surpassed US standards. Not in this one though:
It starts on the outside where the old hotel name is still visible over the entrance, and the BW sign just bolted over them. On the steps to the entrance door, a collection of empty German beer bottles greeted me.
Staff is very transaction oriented you get checked in getting a real key and a short intro how the wifi access works that's it. The room was a shock:
Stains everywhere carpet, upholstery, wallpaper. Furniture including the bed is worn down to rock bottom. With all that it does not help much that the room and bath were clean, It does not make me feel comfortable.
There is an old AC in the room, but it heats by default and cannot be turned off, one could open the window to compensate only to experience trains passing and airplanes in approach ...
Some parts of the hotel have been refurbished like the elevators and apparently the occasional room door. The rest has the charm of the late 1970s. The hotel features a pool and a sauna in good condition but the pool floor is very very warm, and one can smell chlorine four stories up.
Wifi is slow but works even in the more remote rooms.
This hotel needs to be closed down and redone entirely; I cannot understand how a brand like BW which claims to be so keen on standards can let this be open for business.
Breakfast is a highlight; it features a rich buffet selection of fresh fruits, healthier and not so healthy choices, his and the intact hygiene of the room moves my review to 2 points instead of one.
Never again less
