When we found out the day before our departure for Germany that The Hotel Friends in Darmstadt had canceled our reservation to accommodate a wedding party, we had to scramble to find something that we would like for our 4 day stay . My husband came upon this lovely castle on TA and we gave them a call.. We had... More

Stayed here to work around the Lufthansa strike. Wonderful setting in the recently updated Hotel. While it seems it is mostly a Business Meeting hotel, it provides nicely decorated rooms in Avery quiet environment out of the city center. We were placed in the Zeughaus which is 300m extra walk, but nicely along a pond. Breakfast is good business hotel... More

I came for 2 nights for a business meeting and I found out a beautiful hotel and area in Darmstadt. The hotel is build as an old castle in the middle of the forest . The rooms are in very high standard and combatable. Even it is an old building in the inside you can't notice that. Everything is new... More

We were searching for a pet friendly hotel in the Darmstadt area, and came across this lovely spot. The staff are very helpful and the location is only a few kms outside of the city centre. I am only giving this 4 stars because the breakfast was not included, which for the price of the room, I thought It should... More

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
