I stayed at this hotel for three nights , over a weekend, while attending a workshop at the beautiful Heinz Nixdorf institute in Paderborn.
The hotel is in a quiet backstreet near the town centre. The reception staff were reasonably efficient when I arrived. I needed a parking space and these are available for €5 per day about 75 meters from the hotel. I had booked a single room which was reasonably spacious for a single (with a single bed which appeared to be able to extend out to a double).
The bed was nice and firm, there was a desk and chair, adequate wardrobe space and a decent shower room with plenty of hot water and good shower pressure. There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room and no room service. The safe in the wardrobe was broken and I was told that there was no "caretaker" available at the weekend" and nobody had a master key. I guess it was lucky that the safe jammed while open and not closed with my stuff inside it! The TV was a very old model and the remote held together by sticky tape. There is wifi in the room on application to reception for a password. Oddly, they require some ID before giving you the wifi password.
The reception desk is not staffed at night and the hotel doors are locked, which I wasn't told about when I checked in) so remember to take your room keys out with you so you can get back into the hotel.
Breakfast was ok but the hot stuff was uninspiring with the hot dish of scrambled eggs congealed into one rubbery mass and the bacon swimming in grease. There was no toast machine and the selection of other things to eat was a bit limited.
On my second morning, one of my towels had been taken away (as I had left it on the floor as instructed by a card in the bathroom) but it hadn't been replaced. On the Sunday evening when I got back to the room I found the bed unmade, the room had not been cleaned and the two wet towels I had left on the wet bathroom floor for replacement with clean ones were still there. On complaining I was told there was no room service on Sundays. This was not made clear when I booked the room. On a positive note, the management responded to my complaint by only charging me for two nights instead of three. There is a small lounge with a fridge containing beer and soft drinks and an honour system for paying for it. Another fridge containing ice cream is locked at night.
This is a strange hotel. It's nearly good, but the less than great breakfast and the weird things like no cleaning on Sunday's and the lack of staff at night lose it a lot of points for me.
