        5.4

        We appreciated the central location of this facility. We also valued the overall cleanliness of the place.

        We were in room 501. The traffic noise was very loud. Unfortunately, when we closed the window and turned on the 2 fans provided, it was still so stuffy we had to open the windows in order to get some air and endured the traffic noise. We are totally befuddled that this establishment is rated 4 stars. The all purpose soap/shampoo - a liquid goo that didn't do much - should be sufficient to eliminate one star.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The room was very clean and the shower was awesome, clean with good pressure and a very nice size. This is a pretty expensive hotel considering, and you are paying for the American name.

        The lone male desk employee did not seem pleased to be hosting 3 young people instead of a business traveler.

        It was close to the train station

        There are lots of serious problems with the Best Western Cristal and it felt like the owner was trying to squeeze every single penny of profit from it. It was overpriced (severely overpriced). It was understaffed (so that the poor staff were trying to do everything). The rooms were shabby and it felt generally like a no star hotel. The other Best Western just a few streets away is the modern and quality hotel and travellers should not be confuse it with this one.

      • Family with children

        A well situated hotel offering good value for money whilst being good quality.

      • Family with children

        + location, near markets , very helpfull staf and they tray hard to keep you stay comfort , price.

        - no ac but they privide small fan.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        The staff were most helpful and the room was incredibly large.

      • Single
        9.6

        As the site had told me, the hotel is located very close to city´s Haupbahnhof and access to tram lines. It is also very close to downtown were you can go shopping by foot. Staff was very nice trying to help us at all means; we watched a soccer game (Brazil) at the reception. They even had a flag to give us. Amazing!

        room could be a little bigger, but nothing that disturbed our stay.

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        Well located for Central Station.

        Air conditioning - noisy if you open the window. Situated on a busy city street. Lacks a decent lounge. ( more of a motel with star status).

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Friendly & helpful staff in addition to its superb location 5-minute walk to train station & also old city. Just outside the hotel are lovely cafes which open as early as 7AM for breakfast, and also supermarkets as well as good Italian restaurants within 10-minute leisurely walk. Very clean & spacious rooms & bathrooms. A desktop computer beside the lobby for guests to use for free. It is a real 4-star hotel but costing slightly less than 3-star hotel. Great value for money. from a matured couple from Borneo Island

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        There was a problem with the internet connection in my original room, and the staff was very gracious to switch me to another room, even though the hotel was fully booked. I both needed and very much appreciated the good internet access.

        The neighborhood isn't exactly the best, but it is OK.

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        Good clean rooms, all services available.

        Additional charges for internet, parking, breakfast. this all adds up if you travel as a group! Also the hotel lacks a personal touch you will get in a family hotel. Not important to most but service is important to me.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Good hotel in central location. Ideal forwalking to city centre and station

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        I'd prefer if a continental breakfast was included in the rate charged. We didn't want a lot to eat in the morning so didn't want to pay €16.50 fr a buffet and only have a croissant and coffee. The room was very hot at night (heat was turned off) but it was too noisy outside to keep the window open. Air conditioning was ineffective. But the location of the hotel was ideal, and room was a good size and spotless.

      • Single
        7.8

        High standard business hotel, location one block from Hauptbahnhof was great though the surrounding environment there is not that beautiful. Large clean room with everything but internet in good condition and functioning well. Breakfast buffet with good selection though rather expensive.

        Promised high speed internet didn't work at all and was not improved despite of several complaints. Apparently, no action was done to even try to improve it. WLAN was too weak and LAN cables were not available though they were mentioned in hotel information booklet in the room. Locker room for temprorary luggage storage was not controlled by any means. Key was just given from reception.

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        This hotel was within walking distance from the train station about 5-8 minutes. Very inviting from the outside. Friendly staff and clean rooms.
