This is an excellent hotel and the staff are great. It is very conveniently located near the main bus and train station. We caught the bus from Hamburg Airport and got delivered across the road from the Hotel. It has two great eating venues, the Pier 16 restaurant downstairs and Deck 8 on level 8, where you can sit and drink and eat and look out over the Fjord. I strongly recommend this Hotel to anyone who is going to visit Kiel.

GHOTEL Kiel is easy to find on a main road outside the centre of Kiel and has plenty of parking. Staff are friendly and helpful, and speak English as well as German. The rooms and public spaces are somewhat stark but relieved by colourful paintings on the walls. There's an excellent breakfast buffet in a dining room with picture windows overlooking the garden, and a good mid-range restaurant three minutes' walk away behind the hotel (Am Posthorn). The hotel is ideal for a quick business visit; holidaymakers and families could probably find somewhere more attractive nearer the centre of town. Beware of their cancellation policy which returns only 10% of what you've paid.

This hotel is near many restaurants and boutiques. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Check in was quick. I asked for a queen sized bed but got a double and a very soft mattress so when my husband and laid down we sort of sunk into the mattress. The bed was comfortable when only one person was sleeping on it. The room was clean but small, typical of European hotels. There was a moldy smell in the bathroom but I got rid of it with room freshener. I enjoyed my stay despite the small inconvenience and would stay there again.

This was a very good basic hotel. We have stopped at 2 others in Kiel and this was the best.
They do not speak much English (we do not speak German) but they spoke sufficient for us to be able to understand each other. They offer coffee during the day but when we came back fairly late in the evening you could not get a drink as it was laid up ready for breakfast. It would also be nice to have hot water and the choice of being able to make tea or hot chocolate instead of coffee ( although the coffee was also nice.) It would be nice to have a mirror in the bedroom by the dressing table as the only mirror is in the bathroom and not convenient for doing hair, make up when someone else is in the shower. We enjoyed the complimentary fruit on the desk - beautiful apples.

Located just a short walk from the main rail station (HBH) and bus station, this hotel ideal if youre arriving by train from Hamburg as we did. On arrival (we checked in late which wasn't a problem as I emailed prior to travelling) we were greeted by a very helpful receptionist who showed us to our room on the eigth floor and an almost 360° view of kiel. The room (no minibar) itself was clean and plenty big enough for two people, the wifi in the hotel was very patchy to say the least and sometimes would not connect all. The bathroom but to honest the bathroom was showing its age a bit. The bar/restaurant is located on the 10th floor but I can't comment as we didn't choose to have breakfast included with our room and when I tried to use the bar (21.00 Sunday) it was closed but this seems to be the norm in kiel, it's a very quiet place once the sun goes down. Nitpicking now but the only real complaint I could make about the nordic Astor is the lighting in the stairwell was non existent and walking down from the 8th floor wasn't much fun in the pitch dark. There are two perfectly good elevators so this wont be a problem for most but if you like to use the stairs like I do, it's not ideal. All in all the nordic Astor is a decent hotel and I'd have no problem staying again if I was to ever visit kiel again.

The centre for German shipbuilding, Kiel is also the country’s sailing capital. Kiel Week (last week in June) is one of the biggest sailing events in the world. Attractions in the old town include Kiel Maritime Museum and the 14th century church of St Nicholas with a sculpture by Ernst Barlach in front. The white-sand beach of Laboe, 10 kilometres north-east, has a Naval Memorial and a WWII submarine, now a museum.
