0.35km from Weihnachtsmarkt BonnThe Hotel is located just off the busy street. Every few minutes a tram rattles by and if you are on the first and second road facing rooms, you will definitely have a disturbed sleep. And no! The windows don't filter out the sound although a few reviews put up by others say they do filter it out. But I definitely disagree. Further, the family-run outfit scrimps on the heating bill and I think they have a timer to switch off the heating around 3:00 AM when they believe you are fast asleep. Th heating system kicks in again around 6:30 when one normally awakens! My sleep (and that of my fellow guests) was disturbed and when we felt cold two days in a row, we checked the room heaters... and needless to say... it was just barely warm. Our enquiries with the staff the next morning were brushed off in a manner most people may find rude or indifferent. The bathroom is very tiny almost the size one finds in aircraft. So if you are well built, a word of advice.. don't step into the shower cubicle..you may not be able to come out! The first night there was a biscuit on the pillow but none on the next two nights we stayed there! Small things but apparently the owners don't care. The bed is awful as is the single huge pillow kept there to help you smother out the noise of the passing trams. (On a lighter note, if you happen to suffocate while smothering out the noise, the Hotel will not be responsible!) More like a bunk than a bed. (See photo!) Breakfast is good. the fresh fruit (organic!) as well as the eggs, sausages, et all were delicious and probably the only saving grace of the establishment. The family members (I think they are family and not staff) who look after the breakfast arrangements are warmer and more generous than some of the others. All in all a place that must actually be closed down by the authorities but ok if you are an itinerant salesman or one who has stayed in the place for the last 20 years on multiple visits and know the folks that run the place.
