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

This hotel is located in the woods area surrounded by horse farms, lakes and beautiful scenery. The hotel grounds are surrounded by fruit trees and flower garden which... 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

I stayed at this hotel at the end of business trip. Staying in the forest in the historic surroundings, with a modern room, reminded me that it is possible to live in a world in harmony with the surroundings. This place gave me a definite "sense of place" that spanned the 19th through 21st Century. I found the room clean... More

This is a special spot. The ambiance of the location and facility, as well as the rooms, set it apart from most lodging. We were disappointed the restaurant was closed (we were there on Sunday), but did have a reasonably pleasant dinner in the adjoining biergarten that was broadcasting the World Cup. The museum and large park are special spots... More

The hotel tries to be posh, but does not really deliver more than the average downtown Darmstädter 4 star hotel. Biggest advantage is the surroundings - I went out for a morning walk in the forest and spotted wild boars and in a very peaceful environment. Despite this you're only 15 minutes from Darmstadt. Restaurant is OK, but not more,... More
