Missrepresented on Best Western site availability of an airport shuttle. When we discovered no shuttle service existed we called the hotel who informed us none existed but we could take a taxi for about 20€ or the train. Given how long it had taken after a long flight to determine the lack of a shuttle we decided to take a taxi which was 39€ plus tip, not the 20€ as claimed by the staff at the hotel. Thus, the advertised airport shuttle service was going to cost me over 80€. I brought this up as a problem when checking in as well as when checking out. At check out, I was given at 19€ deduction on my 72€ spent on meals—25%. They would not even meet me half way for expenses. And, the return taxi fare was 1 euro more. Checking with others, the estimate of 20€ is half the usual fare. less

We are awfully sorry to hear that your experience on this occasion was not a pleasant one. In regards to the promoted shuttle service on the Best Western Site - it is abolutely wrong and we thank you for this important note, so that we were able to delete it immediately. So your Feedback was very valuable for us. Furthermore I only can apologise for the wrong information on taxi fare - normally it is about 35,-€ one way, as it is more than 16 km. However we proposed you to take the S-Bahn, which costs only 5,-€ one way and it`s only a 300 m walking distance to our Hotel. Although we gave you complimentry breakfast as small compensation, I can understand your dissatisfaction. Should you choose to have us again we'll look forward to welcoming you back with a complimentary room upgrade.
BEST regards, Peggy Schilder - Sales Manager
