For Bremerhaven this hotel fits very well. Bremerhaven is not a huge city in terms of inhabitants but locationswise it is a long stretch. So wherever you chose to stay, things are closer or more far away. And Bremerhaven is not a sleeping beauty, more tough and rocky.
This hotel is in the old fish port. There is still some fishing industry, right behind the hotel. We booked a room facing the water line and enjoyed the views. They are far from romantic bucolic but as fascinating as industrial port views can be. They have their own fascination.
The room was good, insulation seemed well, albeit we were opposite the lifts. Reception desk staff was welcoming (and Mr. Stern most welcoming). It attended the bar as well, hence multi tasking in the evening and that put a lot of stress on them. However, they were always kind and friendly.
Breakfast offered good choices and really good, strong filter coffee. There was a coffee machine as well for indivudual cups.
There is a new bus line (HL) with a stop near by the hotel that connects this part of the town with the more central parts. Very convenient. We did not use it since we came by car.
If you continue the water line further, there is Greta's Café, a good find! We ate at one of the fish restaurants nearby in the transformed industrial site. More centrally located "Villa Seebeck" would be a good restaurant choice.
And for museums: one less popular but very interesting one is the museum of the 50's. Unfortunately further away and open on Sundays only.
I liked staying at this hotel. Those four nights were great. less
