The Hotel is far away from Schwerin’s Center, so if you do not have a car it is quite complicated to move around. There is a lot of (free) parking in front of the hotel. At least there is a big Shopping Center (and a McDonalds) on the other side of the 4-lane-through route, safely to be reached afoot. There are Restaurants, bakeries and takeaways for breakfast, lunch and dinner because the Center is open from 8am to 8pm. The receptionists seem to be more interested in themselves than in guests. It was quite hard to get some Information from them. There are no Coffee/Tea maker in the rooms as well in the Lobby, but there is a self-service coffee machine in the Conference Center behind the Lobby: You can get a fresh brewed coffee there even if you are not a conference member, but you have to pay 2€ for each cup - just throw the money in the provided bowl. A drawback of the Conference Center: Almost at any time you have to push through conference members standing heavily smoking in large groups around the Hotel entrance - the Hotel by itself is strictly Non-Smoking.
The rooms: Our room was adequately large with enough space for unpack and for work, only electrical outlets are hard to find and to reach. The marble tiled bath room was adequately big as well and had good lighting but signs of wear were also not to miss: The toilet cover (cheap plastic) was loose and the shower curtain (no curved shower rod) needs to be replaced. The (double) bed was ok, the pillows to soft. There was a Minibar and a small flat screen TV set with some foreign (news) channels.
