      Price ok. The whole place is decorated in an totally unclassy "arty" manner. To me it seems like kindergarten with too much colours and brushes on their hand. But it's different alright. And a huge place.

      The restaturant is not connected to the hotel, so I couldn't be billed. Albeit it's the same place used for breakfast!!?? Also I tried to call the hotel from the car maybe 7 times without getting an answer. When I asked about this, the man in the reception told me he was working alone and not able to answer the phone. Strange arrangement for a hotel. The wifi is censored, and that means it can through you out from where you're surfing anytime. My company's website was obviously too dangerous (and I can assure you, it isn't)

      Excellent interior architecture. Spacious, well-appointed room. Good breakfast, served since early in the morning.

      Very bad location. No good way to get to and from the closest airport. I would recommend some form of shuttle service. Staff was friendly could barely speak English.

      Nothing (!) This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

      The hotel rooms are not suitable for business travellers. Rooms do not have irons, hangers, cupboards or showers (unless you pay for a premium room). On two occassions the restaurant was closed resulting in a long taxi journey to find somewhere to eat - this place is far from any other restaurants, bars or shops.

      Very nice hotel, not ordinary

      It was promoted as an artistic/art hotel - which is only true in common spaces (e.g.) lobby but not in all hotel rooms.

      The telephone did not work, and the hotel was not able or willing to fix the problem.

      The hotel decoration is amazing. We had a suite with a huge 2-places bathtub in our room for quite a cheap price. The breakfast is complete and of good quality.

      The hotel is not located in the center of the town: you have to take your car for each activity or going out. However it was never a problem to find a place to park in the street.

      Price for the stay was quite ok. Spacious room.

      Stains on the carpet in the room, cold bathroom, free wi-fi is very slow and only then clicking on advertisement every 15 minutes. Only one very slow elevator.

      Multicolour bathroom floor is quite strange, the paint goes off.

      We needed a nice place to have a quick stopover on our way to Paris and it was perfect. Easy to get to from the autobahn, in beautiful surroundings and great value for money.

      Nice environment in the hotel with a nice staff. Excellent restaurant and very satisfying breakfast buffet. Quite a big and cosy room with good internet connection. Decisely recommended!

      The cost for the breakfast is quite unreasonable (12 €) although it's very rich.

      Extraordinary hotel! I will return with friends. We did not expect to find such an original place in Wuppertal, as we just came to see the 'Schwebebahn; - overhead tram. excellent value for money. i'm a writer, and felt very inspired by the surroundings.Excellent value for money.

      To be honest, nothing. Room was spacious.

      Staff was totally unhelpful with giving advice and had issues with speaking English. For visiting Wuppertal they advised to go to Dusseldorf. There was no airco in the room. With 37 Celsius outside it was kind of seating in sauna. We got a small fan from reception after calling them. I wouldn't call liquid handsoap 'toiletries'. WiFi connection drops every few minutes. I was unable to work with it. Neighborhood is quite scary after darkness and people are shouting at night. No idea where they got the 4 stars from. There is Ibis in city center for the same price but with airco and you can get a good hotel in Dusseldorf (40km).
