First impressions were worrying. Apple Maps took me to a locked door on a side street with a bell for reception which initially went unanswered. Only once I'd finally gained entry did I realise there was an entrance through the bar on the main street. This is a bar/restaurant with rooms - I've stayed in many similar places in France though not in Germany. No lift, so a room on the top floor needs a lot of climbing with luggage, but the room itself (a single) was clean, light and pleasant. Very reasonably priced (I wondered if they'd charged me for one night rather than two!) and perfectly good breakfast. If I returned to Greifswald I'd certainly stay there again.
Good points: The breakfast staff were friendly and brought everyone their own pot of tea / coffee. I appreciated that my room was cleaned and towels replaced each day. Providing a free bottle of water and 2 small chocolates in the room was a nice and friendly touch. The room was a good size with plenty of storage for luggage and belongings. The location was extremely convenient for me - that was the main reason I chose this hotel. Bad points: Lots of narrow, steep stairs, no lift: not fun with luggage or for anyone who is not fit and mobile (or for someone tired out from travel as I was!). Room was a bit chilly, especially the bathroom (no under floor heating). Furniture and fittings were dated. Noise from neighbouring rooms and from the street. No black out curtains. Wifi password was a closely guarded secret and, due to lack of staff around during the afternoon, I had to wait until the evening to get the password - just provide it in the rooms!! I suppose I have become spoilt by staying in chain hotels so I expect certain things (like ease of access to Wifi) and some kind of luxury in my surroundings. And a staffed reception if I need any help. So this was not the hotel for me but ,if you prefer small, personal hotels this could suit you if you don't require luxury accommodation (and you love climbing stairs!).…
I stayed in this hotel just before Christmas 2015. I was here on business and really needed peace. The single room I was originally put in faced the car park and got quite noisy one night. I asked to change, told the owner that I really needed my sleep, and was upgraded to a double room at the same price. I felt really taken care of and at home in this cosy hotel. In addition to the caring treatment I can wholeheartedly recommend their bar. Great food, especially the duck, and nice drinks at good prices. I felt like I was coming back home every evening. Well worth a visit!
It is a small hotel at the main street of Greifswald's old town, in a historical building. Therefore no elevator, no lobby, very tiny rooms with even tinier beds. It hasn't been renovated for a while. Bring your own slippers as the carpet is not very fresh anymore. Wifi worked well in the room. Breakfast was a rather simple buffet. Staff was OK but you need to take into account that the receptionist doesn't start very early. I had to leave at 7.00 and ordered breakfast for 6.30 but eventually I had to ring the doorbell to get into the reception+restaurant area and scared the breakfast cook to death. She of course had no idea that I wanted to have an early breakfast but luckily she could offer me something. It was a 2* hotel for a price of 3*.
