So the hotel is great: relatively inexpensive, good location near the train station and major sites, and boasts an excellent breakfast. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are comfortable.
My only warning is that the area around the hotel seems a little seedy. Crime can happen in any city, but you need to be really careful near the hotel. My bag containing my passport, tablet, and some clothes was stolen from the hotel lobby while I went to the bathroom. Normally the hotel staff must "buzz" you into the hotel, but on this day the door was open to due the unusually warm weather. My wife was even watching our bags while I was in the toilet, but a group of young people came into the lobby and distracted the staff member while one of them made off with my backpack.
All that being said, I would still stay at this hotel again for all the reasons that I said above. By the way, some kind German notified me that he found my passport in a park in Cologne, so the story had a relatively happy ending.More
