The suite we had was amazing. The location was incredible. Our room overlooked the daily market, which we enjoyed observing and visiting.
The view out our window was of the beautiful cathedral. We were greeted with welcome drinks. The daily breakfasts were included and were delicious.
The hotel outside appearance is beautiful and situated am Münster Platz which in itself is also a great location. However what lets the hotel down is the accommodation,very basic and utilitarian in furnishings.
Our room on the first night was rather cramped but thanks to a lady member of staff she moved us to a much nicer room with a shower.Over all the staff were very good and helpful. The breakfast was also very good.
Our room faced the Cathedral with a market every morning,as we are early risers this was, for us,wonderful.

Right next to the Munster within the pedestrian area, the main shops are just steps away as were all 4 of the Christmas market locations. Rooms were comfortable.
The hotel and restaurant are, for lack of a better word, traditionally decorated. The room was immaculate. The cathedral bells are very loud. And so are the occasional revelers. Thankfully there are ear plugs on the night stand. (Some rooms are on the square, others are on the street opposite.)
The breakfast was delicious and the restaurant charming. The restaurant staff were attentive and friendly. (I don’t have special needs and eat everything.)
Hotel and restaurant staff speak English rather well.
We requested a room facing the cathedral but please note the bells of the cathedral go off on the hour ending at 11pm and starting back at 6am. Plus at night you have the city sounds of people enjoying good wine and beer below. Our room was large and comfortable. The same is true for our bathroom. Please no there is no AC but things cool off at night plus the window open wide. I will tell you the pillows are pretty thin. We ate most of our meals at the hotel restaurant with breakfast included. Loved their local wine.
Nightlife around the cathedral is lively but ends around 11pm. The hotel is a perfect location to discover this great German town.
