Located just off the ring road, close to the train station and adjacent to the Congress Centrum, the Maritim understandably focuses its attention on the business sector. Though all the necessary features from meeting rooms to banquet facilities are present, they're of little benefit to the average tourist.

Our moderately-sized room had a decent view of the river and the usual amenities—color TV, radio, mini-bar and phone. The furnishings were typical but not unpleasant with a full length mirror, a small table and two upholstered chairs. We were surprised, however, that in a relatively new hotel there were few electrical outlets and, even worse, the room was poorly lit. Two bedside lamps had ultra low-watt bulbs and were totally inadequate for bedtime reading. The bathroom was considerably brighter with both a tub and a shower in addition to a hairdryer, terry cloth bathrobes and, something of a rarity, washcloths.

The cost of the room was 388 DM ($241) with an extensive breakfast buffet that was a bit hectic but among the better ones we've ever ravaged. This large hotel with 293 rooms also has an indoor swimming pool, sauna, sun room, three restaurants and a bar.
