I stay in this hotel often. The rooms are comfortable, and the staff is friendly. The downtown pedestrian zone is only a couple of blocks away and there is a tram stop right in front of the hotel for easy access to public transportation. The hotel is not quite what I am used to at US Renaissance hotels, in terms... More

I didn't speak a word of German, I was tired and dirty (we had just driven from Holland having gotten the overnight ferry from Newcastle - with a 9 month old) but as soon as I approached the desk at Renaissance I was made to feel warmly welcome. They were very accommodating of our, by now tired and cranky, baby... More

I stayed here for 6 days in August while on family vacation in the Black Forest. The hotel itself has a oldish feel and first impression was sos so. However, the wonderful staff and room state/comfort made all the difference. Travelling with three young kids can be stressful but our stay was worry free and pleasant. The front desk attended...

We have stayed at many Marriott properties including Renaissance level in other European cities. This property is NOT a Renaissance as you would expect. It is barely a Courtyard level property. It is having construction done on the parking so yu use a municipal lot ( understandable and they are working with this to correct). The real issue is there... More

We found the check-in staff and porters were friendly and efficient, the rooms were well appointed and clean with comfortable bedding. The hotel is centrally situated with public transport right on their doorstep. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and thought the choice and food was good. The service was slow in terms of service to the table.... More

If you need a stay over (or several) on your way home - this is a must. Central location, well situated nearby town centre, and lovely rooms and staff. On our way home from Spain, we found this hotel, we made a good deal only 90 € for a lovely room including a very nice breakfast (it contained everything) and... More

Stayed here on 28/07/14 for an over night stay on way to Italy with a coach tour from N Ireland. Lovely hotel, very clean and comfortable beds, spacious rooms with large TV with English channels. Only thing I can remark on was the food. I don't know what the Germans eat for dinner but I thought it wasn't great, ok,... More

We arrived after a long drive with our 2 children, age 4 and 6. Check in was quick and easy, and the desk staff were quick to provide us with a map and answer questions. We booked a junior suite, as a larger room is usually easier and cheaper than trying to get connecting rooms when travelling with small children.... More
