My husband and I arrived shortly after 2 on a Saturday full of shopping in and around Darmstadt and were promptly and professionally checked in. You do not get any offers like help with luggage or internet, but when you ask you are promptly attended. Our room, 104, was in the main building with bar and breakfast place. Nice view... More

This was a pleasant surprise. The considerate renovation of this historic hunting castle with tasteful art and furniture makes this an all-round great experience. When we visited only the bistro was open (reduced, yet very tasty menu), so I cannot comment on the full menu in the restaurant - what I can say is that you are very lucky if... More

We decided to do a 3 day Frankfurt city tour prior to an Italy vacation and stayed at this cute Hotel. Really happy all around, breakfast, rooms, service...Only reasons why not 5 stars are the surroundings (not quite as pretty as the pictures on Hotel website) and overall value - we booked late and paid accordingly. However, if you are... More

This is an old hunting lodge which, although renovated for modern day, still manages to retain its character. Excellent location for traipsing through the forest and seeing the accoutrements of the hunt from yesteryear. Very quiet place, and they really don't skimp on the room amenities. The junior suite was well big enough for a family of four even without... More

The room was absolutely fabulous : a tablet available just for me, a little chocolate on the pillow, a big beautiful bathroom, a very comfortable mattress. Breakfast very tasty and a lot of choice. Finally, the staff was very helpful and kind. In conclusion, I'm really looking forward to return there if I can.

I stayed here for a 36 hour planned layover at Frankfurt, but wish I could have stayed longer. It is a very nice, quiet place just outside of the town of Darmstadt. The rooms are decorated in a modern style but not too extreme - very tasteful. Also, the price was very reasonable for what you get. The staff was... More

We stayed in this hotel for just one night, but had a very enjoyable time. The room was large and comfortable, and the bathroom was very spacious and modern. The room setting was like a Marriott, not really a B&B. The breakfast was excellent and you could ask for eggs to order. In addition, they had bacon, boiled eggs and... More

We booked this hotel because all Frankfurt city hotel's were fully booked due to an international trade show. As well, Jagdschloss Kranichstein Hotel (main facility) was full so the receptionist proposed us 3 single rooms in so called "Zeughaus". First of all the "Zeughaus" is not 100 m from the hotel hall... it is more far (so we understood why... More
