HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Very good experience at the hotel excelsior. Staff couldn't have been better and the new Alpine room was spacious and well supplied. I especially liked the 1 Euro price for any mini bar. I did find out the day before my arrival that the hotel was under renovation. As a frequent traveler that is always a big red flag, but...

Dear emurphy57, Thank you very much for all your kind compliments. Especially the one on how we handle our remodeling is a real treat for us! We do our best in order to have the impact on our guests as little as possible and it is good to read it works out well. The gym, by the way, has never...

Immaculate, we were not troubled by any remodeling, looks like it is moving along nicely. Very large room with huge, well done bath. All staff have been wonderful, but Julia was outstanding, amazingly helpful. The street noise is loud so you have to keep your windows closed, which makes the room warm. Not sure how to fix due to the...

Dear blhutchinson, What a lovely review, thank you so much! I have forwarded it to Julia and I’m sure it made her day. Yes, being located in the center isn’t always very calm, but in the progress of the remodeling we are also improving our windows with their insulation and install air condition. Until it is finished we are looking...

Nice large room, European style furnishings, quite plush. Hotel is under major renovations and the front was completely boarded up except for the door. No warning of this when booking. Staff were very friendly, breakfast room was authentically German looking, and the food very good. Close to main station and 10minutes walk along pedestrian street to Marienplatz square.

Recommend you do not stay here until confirming their major construction project is over. The hotel will not tell you about this work that's going on when you book a room! We were awakened at 6:50 a.m. by a hammer drill boring into the concrete just a few feet from our room, workers yelling to each other, etc. It was...

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while attending a conference. It is across the street from the Hauptbanhof, on a semi-pediestrian street with a lot of construction. Coffee shops directly across the street. If you turn right out of the door, it is about a 10-min walk through a pedestrian shopping street to the Marienplatz, and near that the...
