Live here as a student guest. And their service is just terrible! If you arrive at late night, there is only one old lady at the front desk, who cannot understand a single English. Breakfast is way too expensive for it's price. And when I asked them to add an extra bed at my room for my friend two days... More

The staff at the Contel in Darmstadt are really friendly, but not particularly efficient. The corridors and rooms smell damp and old. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious but have an awkward layout, and so does the bathroom where you have very little space to enter the bath to take a shower (and I am by no... More

Beeing on business trip I spent 5 weeks in this hotel. This hotel is definitely one of the worst experiences I ever had. First of all the interior is very outdated, TV shows german channels only, by the way, TV is located in such a place that you can't watch it lying on the bed. Second thing is that room... More

Stayed here a few times when other hotels were fully booked. Generally the poor points are the lack of air conditioning in the summer, the poor internet connection and the noisy fridge in the room which woke me up every time the compressor cut in. This hotel has an atmosphere that makes you glad to get home!

Stayed at Contel a couple of times over the last 4 years on business visits. Since the company was taking care of the charges I could manage to stay here, else would stay elsewhere. Rooms are typical 3* with nothing special...oh yeah....they have a flower/garden wall paper on the ceiling. In summers, it's there's no air conditioning, not even a... More

3 star property with clean rooms, friendly and very helpful staff, slow internet connection and excellent on-site restaurant. All of the staff spoke English, but located in an area with not much around.

I am extremely pissed off by this crappy Contel Hotel! There is no internet for whole six weeks and they don't even try to fix it. The people at reception just refused to help every single time. And they also charge for everything!!! It costs 10 euro to change your bed sheet even though you stay there for more than... More

I was stuck at this cheezy nightmare for one week last fall. The place is really run down. I got ,oved into 3 or 4 different rooms just to find one i could easily get into the shower in (if you're physically challenged forget this hotel). No air conditioning (and yes it gets hot in there) and they tried to... More

I have been working in a project in Darmstadt for a while, so I have gotten a chance to try quite a few hotels. My stay at the Contel Hotel, I have to say left me with a pretty poor experience. First the place is quite run down. The cleaning people I believe do a good job, but the room... More

For a city the size of Darmstadt, I would expect more selection. The best hotel was booked and this was the second choice. I can't believe there is nothing in between. Very basic with the most strange landscaping and interior decorations. My room had rose wallpaper on the ceiling and the hallways were heavily textured like they were hiding flaws.... More
