The Art Hotel in Magdeburg is an attraction mainly because of its whimsical architectural construction designed by the famous Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The hotel service is equal as in most other hotels.
The rooms are spacious, furnished with a double bed of 160 cm, a desk and a wardrobe. Through the window, a playground of the kindergarten was on par. To enjoy some privacy, we had to keep the curtains closed.
The bathroom with its colorful ceramic mosaic is something special. The bathroom is equipped with a shower cabin. The room as the bath room were both spotless clean. WiFI worked flawless and quick.
Clear negative marks for the breakfast experience. The breakfast room which also serves as a reception is too small and is getting cramped. The breakfast selection was OK but nothing memorable. Egg dishes were prepared on order but subject with long waiting times.
The hotel garage was apparently full, but we found right next door in the shopping mall a spacious underground garage a few Euros cheaper.
Around the hotel there are many restaurants, among them a Steak House, a Spanish, a Greek but no typical German tavern. A shopping center next to the train station is in 10 minutes walking distance. This tram stop is located in front of the hotel entrance

We stayed in this iconic Hundertwasser hotel for two nights and found it wonderful in every way possible. Unlike other reviews here, we found the reception quite friendly and accommodating to our needs. There were several perks that weren't listed that we enjoyed: a glass of lemon water and a complimentary sherry at the table in the lobby (from 3 to 5pm, I believe), bath robes to enjoy the sauna and spa, funky bar fridges in form of old barrels that are brightly coloured and are located in the hallway (and you simply wheel one into your room to use), working air conditioning and good double glazed windows to muffle the street noise (which is minimal after 11pm). The bed was comfy and pillows were good, although I missed out on the "pillow menu." I loved the spacious room as it was easy for two large suitcases to unfold and not take up too much floor space. The bathrooms are classic Hundertwasser in that there isn't any straight lines at all (other that the square shower unit). In short, our stay was luxurious, restful and wonderful in every way possible. Recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for room 115 as it's the largest one. It overlooks the street, but is still very quiet with the windows closed.

Wonderful Jundertwasser atmosphere -- compellingly & starkly contrasting Bauhaus! Colorful and welcoming. The service was personable and helpful. We had a room with a terrace garden. The only negative was that our neighbor incessantly smoked the foulest cigarettes possible and, thus, significantly reduced our garden time and enjoyment. We were able to have dinner out there, though.

The breakfast buffet was generous, freshly cooked, and delicious. The pillow menu was a nice surprise and definitely enjoyed.

Having studied art, design, and architecture, we will gladly stay there again. Far superior to the 5 Star hotel in Dresden.

Room Tip: Ask/book a room with a garden or balcony for full enjoyment.

The building is funny and the receptionist was friendly when we checked in, so that's why I don't rate it one. The rest was a joke: Air con was not working, we had to change rooms in the night. Wasn't much better in the other room. Receptionist didn't appear to know what an air con was. Bed was extremely worn, jumpy and you could feel every spring.

The exterior of the hotel looks quite unique and fascinating. The interior is also quite funky. My room was great and large. It was hard making the AC work propeley however, good thing it wasn't too hot. The Asian restaurant in the same building was very good. Location is good, 5-10 minutes walk to the train station.

Had actually a little bit of trouble finding the lobby/hotel entrance since its actually quite small. My reservation also could not be found for some reasons.
