I'm still surprised at the genuine feel of hospitality you'll get at non-chain hotels in Germany, and Zum Riesen is no exception. The hotel is in a meticuously clean but rather austere 1950s building (like the rest of Hanau, the old hotel was flattened in the last bit of the war). The room i had was massive, with a nice...

The hotel Zum riesen was very good experience. Location next the Hanau market square was excellent. Also railway station was near.

It was also nice that cleaner puts a puzzle or chocolate on your... More

This is a fairly standard hotel - nothing exceptional. The rooms are quite small but functional, however, they are very clean. The breakfast on a morning is OK - not the best, not the worst (or wurst in Germany). There seems to be lots of wooden puzzles around the lobby and the cleaner puts a puzzle or chocolate on your...

I stayed for two nights on a business trip. The secretary in the office booked it so I don't even know how much it costs.... Regardless of the cost: I stayed in Room 104. There was no shower cabin or bathtub.... Just the floor tiles with a drain!!! And after you showered the whole bathroom was like a swimming pool...... More

The best value is the Riesen JR, which is a cheap alternative at around € 70,- The Hotel is a disappointment and this is not the right place to be for a good night’s rest. The beds have a non-removable plastic cover and it’s uncomfortable to say the least. The hotel is half hearted refurbished. On a positive note: The... More

Dont like the neighborhood to much, many sex-clubs. Ok, to run through the near park and along the river. Lots of funny games to play at the bar, they also leave small puzzles in your room every day.
