The room was big, nice, comfortable, and impeccably clean. Comfortable, and nice. Everything was very clean! The staff was friendly and helpful. It had a minibar, and a sitting area. And an Elevator. What could be a little better: - a shower door that doesn't leak water into the bathroom, and - an electric outlet near the bed. Less traffic noise (which the hotel obviously has no control over)
Based on previous reviews I was not expecting anything fancy so I was not disappointed. The Preuss hotel was ideally located for a large international conference as it was right in the middle of the session locations. The room was clean and neat, typical of a student dorm room, with its own small en- suite bathroom. Breakfast was available for 6 €. The hotel is a short walk from the railway and a lovely little restaurant strip with lots of coffee shops and bars, with a supermarket nearby. There is a small university restaurant/ bakery at the bottom of the building which seemed to be open 9-5 ish. I rather enjoyed staying here, particularly in light of colleagues who had to commute distances from their hotels to the conference.
Located in the Dammtorpalais, an old building next to the university and across the street from Dammtor train station, Preuss is one of 5 or so small hotels there, basically one on every floor. I chose this because of proximity to Congress Center and price (about 100€), but it is very basic and I would never go there on a holiday. Pros: pretty good room and bathroom, free wifi Cons: windows were repeatedly left open, what a waste when the heating is on, and going back to a cold room in the evening ... not nice. Also: pick your room carefully, they are not all the same size and orientation. Mine faced the traffic and the train station, it was therefore very noisy, vibrating when trains passed.
Spend two nights in the hotel in November. I was attending a meeting nearby, so this was a good choice. Hotel is situated in an old brick building. The same building (same entrance) accommodates several other hotels as well. Hotel Preuss is on the fourth floor, small elevator takes you there. Great things about the hotel were - reasonable price - reliable hot water in shower and good bathroom - quiet location Things that I did not like - room heating was manual and room was cold most of the time - turning the heating on cause funny smell (burning dust or similar) - free wifi was really lousy, couldn't even download basic email (gmail) - relatively far from city center (about 1 km walking), not much services around the hotel I did not try breakfast, at 9 eur per person doesn't sound too expensive. I recommend the hotel if you are coming to Congress Center and don't want to pay big bucks to Radisson or Grand Elysee.…
The building actually houses 4 hotels, and Preuss is one of them. Its a great location, close to the University, Dammtor train station, Messe and Planten und Blomen (where I spent a few evenings walking around). Lots of eating and drinking places nearby within walking distance, and lots of college kids around. I'd booked a single room for a week, perhaps because of lean season I was given a charming double room which was fairly large. The rooms don't look like standard hotel rooms, I got a nice little sofa and round wooden table at one side of the room in addition to usual other stuff. The front desk person called it his best room. The bathroom was a bit small for my taste, but quite manageable nevertheless. Internet is free, breakfast is charged but not worth for the price. In the cellar of the building is a superb cafe that I highly recommend, Had a lovely stay, and it was good chatting with the person in the front desk. Turned out that he studied music in India for some years a great many years ago, and met with many great (old) Indian musicians. Interesting, or?…
