  DNS cannot be resolved in Hotel Hotspot

Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I was asked to create a new bug for this in
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/+bug/1727237 as it
  seems to be a different issue.

  I have installed the nightly image of Kubuntu Bionic from 25th of

  There systemd is in version 237-3ubuntu10.

  When connecting to the wifi hotspot in my hotel (Quality Hotel
  Augsburg) I cannot open the hotspot landing page that should give me
  access to the WIFI. With Windows and on an Iphone it's working.

  For the following distributions I can confirm it not working:
  Kubuntu 17.10
  Kubuntu 18.04 (nightly image 25th of April 2018)

  The logs were taken on 18.04.

  sudo systemctl disable systemd-resolved.service
  sudo service systemd-resolved stop
  sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf
  sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
    >> add "dns=default" under [main]
  sudo service network-manager restart

  Then I can connect to the WIFI and I see the login page in Firefox.

  To capture some data I did the following:
   - connect to Hotspot
   - enter golem.de

  Case 1: Fresh default Kubuntu install
  With a default Kubuntu install it does not work. I can connect to the WIFI 
and get IP and DNS from DHCP but I cannot resolve any hostname. When trying  to 
open the router ip directly in the browser it forwards to hotsplots.de which 
cannot be resolved.

  Case 2: With aforementioned Workaround
  I connect to the wifi, I open firefox and the login page shows up (if I 
havent been connected yet. In the capture I already was able to connect to the 
hotspot which allows immediately to connect to the webpage)

  PS: I'll be in this hotel till Friday 27th if more information are
