All You Can Eat Breakfast

In the group room rate, you’ll enjoy a full All You Can Eat Breakfast included. For you and your students, this means a choice of cereals, whole grains & müsli, fresh bread, boiled eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, various cold cuts and cheeses, tea, coffee, juices, fruit, and salads.

All A&O Hotels hold the same breakfast times:

•    Mon – Sun from 7:00 AM to 11 AM

We only use products from reputable manufacturers such as Tchibo, Granini, Kellogg’s, Messmer, Honnerus, and REWE Food Service.

Packed Lunches To-Go

We will happily provide for your group while they are out on excursions in the city: Our Packed Lunches To-Go consists of a sandwich, water, cereal bar and fruit puree mix.
The pre-packed lunches can be picked up between 7 AM and 11 AM while the group has breakfast. If you desire to pick up the lunches later, our employees can keep them refrigerated until you need them. The group leader can let us know at the reception when the desired pick-up time would be. The a&o Service Team will then bring them to the reception desk for pick up.

Lunch and Dinner Buffet

We can also provide lunch or dinner (salad, main course, dessert). For the latter, we can also offer vegetarian options. As a special school group experience a barbecue can be organized if half board was chosen (can be subject to weather conditions).

Lunch consists of a starter, a main course with a choice between a meat and a vegetarian option, a dessert, a rich salad buffet and a non-alcoholic beverage of your choice from 12,79 Euro*;. Please understand that we can offer lunch by reservation. If you have any requests regarding meals or meal times, please let us know so that we can do our best to accommodate you.

We recommend the a&o Dinner particularly for active groups who want to end the day in the evening  together at a nice, inexpensive dinner buffet. Dinner has the same design as lunch and also costs from 12,79 Euro / day*.

*At the a&o Amsterdam Zuidoost, the price for lunch and dinner is 10.80 euros/day and must be booked before arrival. This offer is not valid in the a&o Cologne Dome, a&o Munich Central Station and a&o Hamburg Hammerkirche.

Looking at the dinner plan in advance would be worthwhile. The menu for all a&o locations is found here: Dinner.

Meal times are from 5 PM to 9 PM. If you are unable to come during those times due to certain program plans, and you know this in advance, we will find an individual solution for you. Please give us advance notice.

a&o offers lunch and dinner in almost all locations for groups of 10 or more people. Only at a&o Hamburg Hammer Kirche, a&o Köln Dom, and a&o München Hauptbahnhof is this service not offered. At cities with more than one a&o, you can pre-order half or full board at another a&o in the city, have your meals there, then return to your original a&o for the night.
