If this doesn't look like a very glamorous, luxurious, fashionable or suave hotel, don't worry, it isn't. It's just an inexpensive place to sleep and have breakfast, not far from the main train station.
I found and booked this hotel through Hotel Reservation Service (HRS) at www.hrs.de and paid EUR 44 per night for a single room (with my own bathroom, of course; that's "en suite" to you) including breakfast.
