I was staying here for a single night and chose this hotel for its location. As I was going to watch the Darmstadt v Union Berlin football game, I needed to be central to get the tram/bus to the stadium. When I checked in the receptionist was efficient and friendly and pointed me in the direction of my room. The... More

A nice old tavern just few meters aways from Marktplatz with resturant too. You can find also noce resturant few steps away hovewer. The rooms are very old (it's a old structure) in style with the place. German style bed and the 80x80cm german pillow (I don't like them)

Had dinner here with business associates. Had some traditional German dishes; Graupensuppe, Odenwaelder Spatzen (schnitzel with mushroom sauce) mit Kaesespaetzle. Prices were good, the restaurant was nice atmosphere, and of course the bier good too. Overall, I'd come back for a good dinner here.

This hotel might have been ok in the 1970s but now it just looks tired. The staff are friendly and the room was cleaned well and there is a safe in the room. Good location is just about their best feature. On the other hand, the room was tiny, incredibly hot and noisy. The door leading to the annex requires... More

Spotlessly clean but, with high outside temperatures, the room was unbearably hot. Regardless of windows kept open or shut, the room never cooled down and I ended up having cold showers throughout most nights. Outside noise, from diners below, at night made it hard to sleep. This quietened down most night after about 11.30, but much later on weekends. The... More

Had an interesting 2 night stay here. The gentleman on reception/waiter/safe cracker was great to talk and had lots of local knowledge about the town. He answered any questions we had, a funny and charming man. The food in the restaurant was outstanding with perfectly cooked steaks. The accommodation was unfortunately abysmal. Rotting furniture and a cockroach in the shower!... More

Undoubtably the restaurant has old fashioned character. However the room I was given in the hotel was like stepping back 30 years...... The proverbial " not big enough to swing a cat" - spotlessly clean but shower (accessed by stepping over the wc) was broken and had a horrible old plastic curtain that stuck to you as soon as you...

It's quite basic and absolutely not cheap hotel in the center of Darmstadt, near the market square. Furniture isn't new but it's clean and still ok for having stay there for a couple of nights. There is also a restaurant downstairs, the oldest in town. As for me not tasty at all.

Stayed in this property while attending a conference. Nice, clean and friendly hotel near the center of Darmstadt. The breakfast is abundant and the restaurant serves decent typical German food. A pitty that the internet connection was not free :/

Our group of 4 booked into the Bockshaut because it is a reasonable price and a great location for visiting the historic sites of Darmstadt. The building itself is several centuries old and has a lot of character. The location could not be more convenient for a tourist - just a hop, skip and a jump from the main square... More
