The following parking facilities are available:

The entrance to the Bergmannsbrunnen is only 200m from the hotel. As a hotel guest, you can order your 40% discounted parking ticket (€ 12.00/day) when you book online on the website!

The entrance to the courtyard is no problem with a car (VW Golf, Ford Focus, etc.). With vehicles up to the size of a VW bus (T5, T6) some caution is required, but the entrance is possible. Unfortunately, taller or wider vehicles no longer fit through our 1899 driveway. The parking spaces in the courtyard are not covered.

With Hotelomat you check in exactly when it suits you.
He encodes your room card, takes care of the registration and prints your receipt. Please make sure that you enter your data completely and correctly when making your reservation. This avoids potential problems and saves you having to make entries on the touchscreen on site.

Start the check-in process by selecting the language on the touchscreen. After that, please select the button “I have a reservation” and search for your last name (usually three to four letters are enough). Follow Ariane’s instructions from there on. During the payment process, you absolutely need a PIN code – also for your credit card. The check-in is impossible without entering your PIN. If your company has a corresponding agreement with us, the payment process is omitted for you and you go directly to the next step.

Please confirm your nationality and fill in any missing data for the digital registration form. Sign the form directly on the touch-screen in the white area. Now select whether Ariane should code one or two room cards for you. Upon successful check-in, you will receive your room card(s) and the receipt for your room booking from Ariane. You can find further instructions in our news article “24h Self-CheckIn with ARIANE”.

When checking out, please simply drop your room card in the black box provided to the left of Ariane. It no longer has any function, but can be reused by us and thus helps to avoid waste and effort. Thank you.
