I stayed here in November 2012 for 2 nights during a conference. I liked the ambience which was relatively laid back. There were some great gardens around the building and the service was excellent.
The coffee shop was very useful and not at all expensive though I never quite got the hang of the opening hours.
The food was superb - one of the best I've tasted in a hotel of this grade. Breakfast was like a full English with a full German so you had bacon and eggs and hash browns together with prawns, pickled herring and a wonderful array of cheeses. In fact it was probably the best breakfast I've ever had in a hotel.
I found the room I stayed in convenient but a bit small. A plus was the fact that smoking was allowed in the room although I usually preferred smoking outside.

The only serious drawback was the hotel's location which was far from the city centre and as far from the city's attractions. One doesnt get much free time in a conference so it would've been nice to be able to pop into town or see the Rhine, I did get to go to Beethovenhaus however - well worth a visit!
Pricewise - it seemed reasonable enough to me!

Room Tip: Have a drink outside on the patio next to the pond....

I spent a few nights here while attending a training in Bonn. The hotel is ideal for a business trip. My room was rather small but big enough, and both the room and bathroom were modern and had all I needed. There was fast wireless in the hotel. The staff was very friendly. The other guests in the hotel were all there for business as well, so there was a quiet atmosphere in the hotel (which is necessary since the walls seem to be a bit thin). The very best thing of GSI is the delicious breakfast with a very wide choice.

I have stayed for a week in this hotel during a business trip. The location was perfect for me, since our offices are a walking distance away from the hotel. For tourists or visitors of downtown Bonn it might me a little far from the city. Though it is close to a U-Bahn (subway) station and you can reach downtown within 15 or 20 minutes.

The hotel itself is very simple and business oriented. It's actually a conference center with rooms for guests. I stayed in a single room and had a single bed and my own bathroom. It is really small and contains only the basics (TV, wi-fi, a couple of cloth hangers and hairdryer). It's important to stress that there is no air conditioning (it has heating, I guess, but I was there in summer) or minibar (you can't store your own food/drinks). I you'd like to iron your clothes, you can borrow from the reception for free.

As everyone has already mentioned, the breakfast ist really nice and with lots of options, including for vegetarians. But the restaurant has no great options for lunch or dinner and sadly there are almost no dining options within a walking distance (you must also walk for quite a while to find a supermarket. For urgencies there is a gas station with a 24h store where you can find some snacks).

They also offer bicycles for rental for a € 8,00/day fee. It's not quite cheap, but it's worth it if you plan to ride beside the Rhein River. The hotel is really close to the river and the very nice Rhein Park

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has no singe entrance for two different rooms. You might get annoyed with the sound of the other guest opening the door.

Stayed here for one night during a business trip to Bonn! Booking was made via email and the staff replied promptly (When we searched availability online, it was showing no availability). The same level of prompt service in email replying was received when I reached there. Though the room was a bit small, it was very clean and it had really all the necessary things for a one night stay (flat tv, nice toilet, comfortable bed!). Free internet connection was available and the connection speed was really good. Overall, I would strongly recommend this place for anyone looking for a budget night stay in Bonn. I must also mention that the food served for breakfast was excellent, with a huge variety of choices!
Positives: Clean rooms, comfortable bed, reasonable price, excellent breakfast
Negatives: Size of the room

Not for a romantic retreat, the institute was used for accommodation, catering and conference room.
Small rooms, but this is not important when on business, very clean and pleasant bathroom.
Free WiFi is available to all and is always appreciated (though not at high speed).
Food and bar is good, with decent selection and very good for breakfast.
The conference room that I saw was well furnished, comfortable and suitable for training, seminars, conferences etc.
Surrounding area is very quiet - if you want some night life you won't be impressed, but everything you need for a business trip can be found on site.

Room Tip: Ask for smoking or non-smoking at your preference.
