Park Hotel Bremen Review
Bremen, a port city that, together with nearby Bremerhaven, comprises the state of Bremen (Freie Hansestadt Bremen) is a city known for commerce and shipping but not necessarily chocolate. Yet as I drove from Arnhem to the Park Hotel Bremen, the one thing I kept thinking of was the chocolates that the hotel makes. I wasn’t disappointed. After checking in, I found a tray of fruit and chocolate awaiting me.
Set in the idyllic 200-hectare Bürgerpark, it’s hard to believe that the hotel is just a few minutes away from the city center and main train station.
My suite had a separate bedroom and elegantly-appointed living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a panoramic view of the Bürgerpark. The hotel has 155 rooms and 18 suites (7 junior, 11 standard), all of which enjoy nice appointments and provide superb views.
The bedroom enjoys equally splendid views of the park. My bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very quiet and easily darkened, making for a great night’s sleep. The elegantly appointed bathroom had a separate bathtub and shower and the hotel provided several bathmats in addition to slippers and a robe, a thoughtful touch.
If desired, wake-up service includes the synchronized delivery of a pot of coffee to your room, an amenity I have come to appreciate more and more.
The generously-sized writing desk faced the park as well and I enjoyed watching people walk and run while I tried to focus on my work. I was suspicious of the desk chair (it simply looked too elegant to be comfortable) but it turned out to be well suited for sitting at the computer. Wireless Internet was fast and free (I was happy to see that Wi-Fi had been installed since my last visit in 2007).
