I loved the location and the cocktail bar. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Some were quite funny. We got a great price for a great hotel, but I'd happily pay more (if I had to) to stay there again. I didn't get to use the spa facilities as there was no information in the room as to where it was or what facilities it had. I didn't see any room service info until the last day - a shame as I would definitely have had my breakfast in bed - expensive though at £30 a pop. They need to include an obvious "cheat sheet" that's visible to see as to services the hotel offers. All they had was a book showing the international locations of other Dorint hotels.

Ideal location, pleasant courteous staff, The road works directly in front of the hotel although it did not effect my actual stay in the hotel - would look better if area was screened off particularly on the side of the hotel.
not really something - price was not equivalent to what the hotel has to offer!! way to expensive for what it is. small rooms, not really an 'inviting' hotel. More a mentallity of 'come here, pay a enormous amount of money and leave!!' An experience that I have not encountered yet in my many international hotel travels. Your organisation has lost a client for life!
The hotel was very well kept, clean large rooms with all the ammenities. The front desk was helpful. The restaurant was very good. Loved the steam and sauna rooms - really made a nice end to the day! The tram stop was under repair so we had to walk 5-6 blocks to get transportation.
Staff were very friendly but the atmosphere relaxed. And i liked the fact that there was a small gym and lovely facilities. Only that complimentary soaps etc.were not replaced and sometimes items purchased from the mini bar were not replaced for two or three days either.
The staff were excellent, not to far from the cathedral.
The hotel is wonderful regarding design, restaurantes are great, excellent choice. I think it has a problem in de Maisonette rooms, the stair is really small and curve so it is almost impossible to take your luggage upstairs where the bedroom is. So at the end your suitcase will be in the sitting area. Also my room smell of humidity.
The Excelsior Hotel Ernst is a superb hotel which I recommend highly. The ambience, room size, location and the quality of the staff were all wonderful and the free mini-bar was an extra treat. The only annoyance was that despite my contract promising free wired and wireless internet access, this apparently only applied to phone and tablet and not to laptops. Wifi for laptops costs €22 per day which is excessive. Last time I stayed they gave me a voucher for the laptop. This time not. Inconsistent - but a small price to stay in a nice hotel.
Very helpful staff. Very alert and professional. Unbeatable location The room was not up to standard for a 5-star hotel. There was a desk, but no lamp on or near the desk. The walls between the rooms are paper thin. I could hear every word spoken by guests in rooms beside me. One morning I was woken by the sound of the woman in the next room having what appeared to be a great orgasm. She probably was not that loud, but the walls must be without any sound proofing at all.
This hotel was a nice surprise, far exceeding my expectations. Fabulous location, very friendly staff, cheap and good breakfast, clean room, quiet. I booked it because it was the only room available, but I will definitely stay here again! None
great central location
It was a lovely hotel and staff were friendly, would come back! Also super quiet! Would have liked to prepay for nicer buffet, not an issue with the hotel though.
Position is ok, rooms are large, bathroom too. Far too expensive
