HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 August 2016

Stopped here to break up the journey driving back from Austria to UK. Initial perceptions, easy to find, on the Rhine, secure, light underground parking and very welcome reception. Our room, though not very big for 4 of us was adequate for a night, clean and comfortable. We arrived around 6pm so headed straight out for dinner enjoying a stroll...

Near the river Rhine and close to major work places. A cozy, very clean room. Friendly staff. But expensive breakfast. Unfortunately no close by breakfast place or cafes. A little farther to the Dom but if you like to walk than walk by the Rhein river and enjoy the view.

Despite having a great location, being walking distance away from the Dom and main city attractions and having modern & renovated rooms, our Novotel stay was rather disappointing. The pillows in our room were one of the worst pillows I slept on at a hotel as they were incredibly thin. When we asked the Reception for extra pillows, they simply...

I have never seen a slower checking process absolutely NO sense of urgency from the guy at the front desk while I stand in a queue. And there are 2 other members of staff just standing there trying not to look at the people in the queue. Unbelievable.
