The family-owned Adagio is a comfortable, modern hotel set behind an attractive 19th century façade. It is well located in a nice, quiet neighborhood just a 10-minute walk to the Gewandhaus and the Augustusplatz. The staff was especially friendly, always smiling and eager to please.

The rooms had no surprises good or bad: they were just bright, clean and up-to-date. The doubles have built-in darkwood furniture with white walls and light blue fabrics and carpets. Singles differ only in that they have lightwood furniture with red and amber fabrics and carpets. The white-tiled baths are spacious and come with showers in the singles and tubs in the doubles. Most of the doubles face the quiet street, while singles face the verdant back garden (the preferred view). Nonsmoking rooms are also available.

The hotel is not really made for disabled guests, as you have to climb a few steps to get to the elevator. Streetside parking is free. One interesting feature for a small hotel is that breakfast is served "whenever you want." I didn't test this by trying to have breakfast at 3 am., but the staff assured that I could if I wanted to. I can, however, testify that breakfast at a normal hour was a very good selection of cold cuts, cheese, fruit and rolls, served with a selection of juices. The waitress was so genuinely cheerful that I looked forward to seeing her at breakfast the next day.

The hotel also has a pleasant garden restaurant that serves food good enough to rival most options in town. Overall, the Adagio is an attractive hotel with a friendly staff that made me feel right at home.
