Hotel Review: Maritim Hotel, Königswinter, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany ...
Hotel Review: Maritim Hotel, Königswinter, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany - August, 2017.
In August 2017 I had a five day break in Germany, travelling from Stuttgart to Düsseldorf. During this journey I spent a night in Königswinter at the Maritim Hotel.
The hotel is situated on the River Rhine front in Königswinter, a 10 minute walk from the railway station, and a 2 minute walk from the Königswinter to Mehlem ferry stop and Königswinter Fähre tram stop.
The last time that I stayed at this hotel, I had a very negative experience due to building works that were taking place. When I arrived at the hotel this time, I could see that building works were still happening, as the reception desk was under refurbishment and a temporary reception desk had been set up in the hotel lobby.
Check-in was quick and easy with a friendly receptionist who spoke good English. I asked for a room on a high floor with a River view, and got a room on the 1st floor, the view was excellent though.
My room, number 116, was a Superior Room, which cost €141.91, the view of the River Rhine costs extra at this hotel, but this was a last night treat to myself. The room had a luggage storage area, wardrobe, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar, safe, desk, flat screen TV, desk chair, comfy chair, lamps, ample plug sockets, coffee table, and a huge king-sized bed. As I had booked the room as a single room, I had only a single quilt and one pillow, which I found very mean indeed.
The room was newly refurbished to a high specification and had excellent air-conditioning.
The bathroom was also newly refurbished with a shiny black and white colour scheme. The shower had annoyingly been put over a bath. I do believe that when refurbishing this hotel that baths should have been removed and shower cubicles installed. I also have great issue with the tiled floor in the bathroom, which was extremely slippery when wet - I consider this a case of style over substance, and a huge health and safety risk. In this day and age, a non-slip flooring should have been installed during the refurbishment.
The swimming pool had been completely refitted and was absolutely beautiful to swim in, very refreshing indeed. This is a real highlight of this hotel.
This film features external views of the hotel, as well as views of the lobby / reception, lift / elevator, 1st floor corridor, a detailed inspection of room 116, level -1, the gym and swimming pool.
This is a very expensive hotel, and that is its downside, I stay here occasionally only. I will certainly return again at some point in future, and if you are thinking of stopping in Königswinter, there probably isn't a nicer hotel to stay in.
