Buchholz Downtown Hotel
Very Good8.0
Convenient and Clean Hotel
The hotel is located on a quiet street with an easy 5 minute walk to the main train station and cathedral, making it an ideal location for getting to and from, but not being noisy. The room was a good size, clean and with suitable facilities and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom has a shower and no bath, with the sink in the main room rather than in the bathroom. The room was pleasant and comfortable, although not the most luxorious, but it represented good value for money and I would definitely stay there again. We visited in order to go to the Christmas markets, and it was an excellent location for that.

One night stopover. Easy to find the hotel, 5 minutes walk from rail station. Be aware if you arrive late, reception closes at 9PM but I was contacted in advance to be told that keys would be left in a secure location and the code to access them. Room was fine, bigger than the single I had booked. Bathroom very small but everything was in good condition and worked well. Breakfast fine an varied.
