The LetoMotel is a fairly new hotel that opened in November 2010. The 3-star hotel aims to conjure up all the guests to a sunny smile on your face, this should be initiated according to his own account, inter alia, by the excellent price-performance ratio, the comfortable beds and good location. The place looks equally as a focal point for city travelers, visitors, Oktoberfest visitors and families.The LetoMotel has 93 rooms, spread over 4 floors. On the ground floor there is no room, because there is just the reception. The hotel has been appealing from the outside in its modern design. The hotel has an underground garage, which I will later tell yet. The hotel entrance is on the ground floor and accessible without steps. It is located in a small lobby. Throughout the hotel there is free Wi-Fi, the code is obtained at the reception.In LetoMotel there are different types of rooms. There are double rooms, single rooms, double rooms and rooms with a roof terrace. In addition, some rooms can connect to family rooms. We had opted for a double room and got number 122 on the first floor. The magnetic card we opened the door and found only once, but that 15 square feet can be quite small. The room is equipped with air conditioning, that can be disabled as well. The window is large and can be opened. Here is tricked enough light. At night there are electric blinds, plus a printed motif with Munich-curtain. Both darken the room together did quite well. In many spots are recessed ceiling, make a nice light when the evening but still in need. Attached to the bed are also two reading lamps, which can bend and what is very practical. Opposite the bed is the flat screen TV. The bathroom is modern and very appealing. The large walk-in shower with rain shower provides sufficient space (on for two people) and since the shower pretty much the rear, there are no floods. Above the sink there is a mirror of what is unfortunately the only mirror in the entire room. Another in the actual room you have ever wanted. Towels were in sufficient quantity together and were changed, what with two nights would not have been necessary. The spa is also small bottle of shower gel and shampoo, but what we have not used. The bathroom has a little storage space, even here, one would wish for more opportunities. A hair dryer can be found mounted on the wall. To separate toilet is not much to say except that here the modern design is followed. Toilet paper was plentiful. Both rooms and bathroom were very clean.In total there is very little to criticize in the room. The sliding door is not the best idea may be, and a total lack of storage space and room for luggage, but at such an affordable price in a very central location, one can also expect a palace. Hence there are only a half point deduction.The LetoMotel does not offer breakfast. Only tea or coffee you can cook in your room. On the ground floor, once out of the hotel and next door to the left back inside, there is the café Wimmer, where you can get from just 3 or 4 EUR breakfast. We were there in the morning buns and the like bought and finished breakfast in the room. Breakfast is a great drink but even here there for about 7 EUR, which I think is priced right. Since we know that there is no breakfast, we were not surprised and found it not so bad.The service in the LetoMotel was really very good overall. Everything was clean and tidy, our beds made, towels changed and there is basically nothing to complain about. Also at the reception we were served a tasty meal, it is staffed around the clock. Wireless Internet access is free, which for many is certainly an important aspect. In total, there 'are no deductions.The LetoMotel is a modern, clean, and well-located hotel that I would always book again when I travel again to Munich. At the service there is nothing to criticize, and the price is really cheap for what you get. Small prints are there for a bit unfortunate idea of a common door to the toilet and shower and small storage spaces, is also not the parking situation at 10 EUR per day is ideal. There are thus 4 out of 5 stars and a recommendation. ..
Hotel PrimulaWith the new 5-star hotel directly on the Weser sounds expensive, but the Hotel Primula in Bremerhaven Stresemannstrasse 110 provides a reasonable value for money. I stayed there two nights for each 76 € (including breakfast) in double rooms. You could walk on Stresemannstrasse and almost walk passed it, the building is unimpressive from the outside. Only the word "Primula" finally showed me: Attention, turn here. And then I was already equal to the parking lot of the hotel, including the free use of the accommodation fee is. The hotel has 86 rooms, most of them are double rooms. It is located on a busy street - that's why you should take if possible, a room to the rear or side out. Acquaintances had said with that is in front of the car noise to hear it sometimes. Back where we had our room, it was quiet. Even with clairaudience, the house has no problems. The rooms of the four-story building are accessible by stairs or elevator. There are (from the parking area) a front and a back entrance.The rooms have a double bed, two small bedside tables, table, chair, luggage rack, cupboard for clothes, telephone, TV, carpeting, and a separate bathroom. These included a bath with shower, toilet, mirror, towel rail, hairdryer. The bathroom had been worn down a bit, here we noticed that the last renovation was probably quite a few years ago. Nevertheless, everything was quite clean and well maintained - although traces of use were obvious. Everything was cramped a little, the rooms were not very big or roomy. Thought the hotel is indeed less to stay during the day (for there is in BHV enough to see and experience), but to stay. And there always reached - because the beds were still not saggy.The reception is staffed around the clock - with competent staff who helped out with, was asked if the crush at breakfast every helping hand. Check in went smoothly and quickly, just as the check-out. And in between times when we had a question, it was helpful information. Information material about Bremerhaven is located at the front desk. The breakfast was ok but nothing more. It was buffet style sandwiches, bread, cereals, cheeses, sausages, jams, honey, yogurt, good coffee (upon request of warm milk or cocoa), tea and juices (oranges and apples). Of all, as much as you wanted. Well, it was enough, although it has similar houses in a little more variety. But more can eat as much as they are not so. At one of our two days we were so against only 9.15 clock for breakfast - just like almost all hotel residents at the same time. Since it was getting too close to the seats. But soon, thanks to the help of the reception staff had prepared a place.The location of the hotel is good. It is located directly opposite the town hall. So if there attended an event and want to stay then, here is cheap and good hands. In the inner city and the river Weser, you can walk (20 to 25 minutes). A better way is probably to consult with either one of the many car parking spaces or pay the charges of the car parks. Here's a tip: If you drive into town and immediately after crossing the bridge Geeste take the first left (traffic light), which takes place along this road with luck, perhaps one of the outdoor parking fees. From there it's really just three minutes walk to the Columbus Center (also in the direct center).

Prizeotel Bremen-CityMy husband (an avowed fan of the city of Bremen) and I wanted to spend some days in Bremen. So I wanted to stay in a beautiful but not so expensive hotel. So I came across the Prizeotel.The hotel is conveniently located near the main station, the walk is about 100 - 200 meters. The arrival by car is easy. Parking is available directly at the hotel. Otherwise the hotel is situated in a quiet side street directly opposite the exhibition halls. The city center is easily reached within 10 minutes.The reception is open 24 hours. Guests can check in from 15:00 clock. The staff was always friendly and totally helpful. I've paid for our room directly at check in, the check out was even easier. We have simply thrown on the last day the key card in a box at the reception and that was about it. Check out should be done until 12:00 clock. But if you also want something on the last day to do in Bremen, it's easy to leave the car still in the parking lot.The hotel is equipped with 127 air-conditioned rooms design. The design rooms are equipped with high-comfort bed, flat screen TV, with integrated speakers and iLamp iPhone / iPod connection, as well as design-shower and complimentary high-speed wireless equipped.When you first enter this room design you have already landed a little to be felt on a different planet. The rooms are very stylish and very modern. On the one hand, very simply in white on the other side with color highlights. All rooms are Non smoking rooms. We had a room for "web side" out, but there was no noise from the train.I was very impressed by the security policy of this hotel. Probably this is now standard in many hotels, but I knew the so-not, therefore, has already impressed me. Without his room card you could not use the elevator or you could go through the stairwell. So at this hotel can gain unauthorized access no.Still to come we had at the time of Bremer "free market", the Oktoberfest in the north in Bremen. The festival site is directly opposite the hotel. Therefore, additional barriers were situated around the hotel are nice but not useful. Similarly, there was a security service who controls everyone who wanted to enter the hotel.We had booked a bed and breakfast. Breakfast was in the modern lounge. Of course, as usual in hotels, it was served buffet style. The buffet was plentiful and everyone had something, the only thing my husband has a bit missing was scrambled eggs. That it was somehow not too bad but not dramatically. Otherwise, it was everything the heart desires early Stücker SunDaytime and evening in the lounge was housed a bar, all I can but unfortunately not say much because we have not used them.As far as I can tell, this place is handicapped accessible. At least we have hit a wheelchair in the elevator and, according to website of the hotel is also wheelchair accessible.My conclusion is that it is the Prizeotel in Bremen at a great, modern hotel in which we will certainly go again. We felt very comfortable and it was all according to our wishes and ideas. A great place for a city trip to Bremen. From here you can beautifully capture the entire city on foot. Also, the Weser stadium (which my husband was very important) can be reached by tram very well. Also, I find the value for money very well.

Hamburg is near to Bremen and only half an hour drive, so when visiting Bremen it’s really worth going to Hamburg. Hamburg is a much larger city and has over a million people. You wouldn’t really say so when walking through the city center since the center feels quiet small. This in a good way, it feels intimate.Worth going to is the Fischmarkt in the city center. I think this market has been there for more than hundreds of years and although at first it was truly used as a food market, these days it’s still a food market but more fun for tourists. These days you have a warehouse were you can buy lots as coffee, greasy food and beer but there is also a band playing music to keep it really entertaining. Of course you still can buy normal food here like fruit, fish and more.It’s truly fun and worth a trip when you are in the city. It’s something different than the usual attractions that you would visit.
