Restaurant Campus

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Weird and Wonderful"

The hotel Photo, Bremen, Germany
Quote:
Restaurant Campus is located within the Atlantic Universum Hotel in Bremen but it’s rather more than just a regular hotel restaurant and it draws quite a lot of custom from the area and not just from the hotel’s guests. It’s doing so much more than just churning out the ‘steak and chips and Caesar salad’ that makes up your standard hotel restaurant fare and it does deserve a bit more attention for that reason.On my most recent visit to the city I met a French colleague on the flight from Amsterdam who was going to Bremen for the same meeting as me. We travelled together on the tram to the hotel and agreed to meet about half an hour later for dinner. When we wandered into the restaurant, tw...Read More

City Airport Bremen

Best Of IgoUgo

Story/Tip

Quote:
Bremen airport is what I call a 30 minute airport by which I mean it’s entirely feasible to turn up 30 minutes before a flight when you are departing and most typical to be out of the place in well under 30 minutes even if you have baggage. There are no long walks and moving walkways, no long lines for security and nothing not too much in the way of shopping to tempt you to be late to your departure gate. It’s also a really convenient place to get to – not one of those crazy airports that are so far away from the city that they’re practically in a different time zone. It’s entirely possible to get from the city centre to the airport by public tram – the number 6 – in just 11 minutes. Add a couple more...Read More

Bellavista im Pumpenhaus

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Dinner for two dozen"

Quote:
I’ve been going to Bremen for so long now that I have a set of trusted restaurants to which I tend to return. I’ve perhaps passed the point of seeking out new places and if I’m in a hurry I just go back to the same places. Once in a while I’m kicked out of my complacency by someone suggesting we go somewhere else and on this occasion a large group of us were visiting the German office for a meeting and the organisers arranged a dinner. The place they chose was Bellavista im Pumpenhaus, an Italian pasta restaurant with its own summer beach bar.I’m not entirely sure of the origins of the name and I didn’t look around me too much when I got to the restaurant. However, when I checked the webs...Read More

Casa

Restaurant | "Do we eat it or climb it?"

Casa Photo, Bremen, Germany
Quote:
I was back in Bremen this week for a few days with the pleasant task of telling one of my team that I’d secured her promotion. I asked another colleague to keep this secret and to arrange a dinner for the team to celebrate. She booked a restaurant called ‘Casa’ in the Viertel (quarter) district of Bremen. I’m unsure how I’ve managed in my very many visits to Bremen to not previously go to the Viertel. I tread a well worn path between the railway station area, the town centre, the historic Schnoor and the lively Schlachte. We took the tram to Domsheide (the stop nearest to the Town Hall) and walked for about five to ten minutes from there. Casa is a restaurant that’s intentionally a...Read More

Ramada Ubersee Bremen

Hotel | "Never again"

Ramada Ubersee Bremen Photo, Bremen, Germany
Quote:
You never get a second chance to make a first impression. On that basis, I knew within the first two minutes of passing through the door of the Ramada Ubersee in Bremen that my review was not going to be a positive or flattering one. It was perhaps the way the receptionist smiled slyly and told me she didn’t have a reservation in my name that started my ‘antennae’ twitching. I spelled out my name carefully and gave her my booking reference. She tapped away at her keyboard, looked down her perfect nose and shook her head again. It was only when I opened my computer, pulled up the confirmation and showed it to her on the screen with exactly the same details I’d already given her that she eventually foun...Read More
