4.14km from Waldhaus OelperAt check-in there was a small group before me, which is not unusual. However, the reception clerks were very slow and the process seemed to take forever. By the time I reached the desk I was so annoyed I decided to speak English (instead of German), which completely took the clerk by surprise - her language skills simply weren't up to the task. She wanted me to fill in my private address on the form and when I asked why the hotel needs to have it (I was traveling for business), she was not able to give me any reasonable answer. She was just reapeating the word "Anmeldebestätigung"! I told her that yes, I have made an Anmeldebestätigung, so the German authorities do know where I live, but the hotel does not need to know it. She repeated the word again until her colleague stepped in and agreed to check me in without having to give my address. Although the room itself was mostly in acceptable condition, the hotel lobby and corridors seemed shabby and worn. My room, although on the upper floors, was facing the street and in the morning the noise of the traffic got disturbingly loud, which I discovered was at least partly due to the window not closing tightly! The hotel is not as good as people here say - average at the most, nothing special.
