Handy for station, friendly staff, free wifi is nice, as is coffee making facilities in room (a rarity it seems these days!) and a fridge stocked with free juice etc. Breakfast was OK, but I can imagine the room might get a little crowded if all the guests came down at once.

We stayed there for one night on are way back from France and it was lousy. Staff were nice and breakfast was good too but there was nothing on the plates when we arrived to the restaurant hour before the breakfast should end. The lady simply couldn´t do everything by herself. But when we asked something, she would bring it,... More

I stayed at this hotel in March while on a business trip to Germany. I was impressed by this hotel, particularly the location adjacent to the main DB train station for Kassel. The reception staff were welcoming and spoke excellent English (which helped given my very limited German). The room I stayed in was very big and very clean. The... More

An elegant property, nice staff and it's centrally located. Its restaurants are fabulous and the food is delicious. Only draw back in restaurant is drinking water is provided only on request! However, this in no way affect the quality of food you get. Hotel has a nice pool and calm atmosphere.

Together with five colleagues, I stayed for one night at this comfortable and friendly hotel. My room (No. 11) was large and warm (during a period of sub-zero temperatures). The room was overlooking the main street & I feared noise. However, apart from the rumbling of the trams, it was quiet and conducive to a good night's sleep. The hotel... More

The hotel is situated right next to the train station Wilhelmshoehe and is very well connected to the city centre with public transport. They actually give a free ticket for public transport for the length of the stay. The staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful. It was also possible to purchase the documenta tickets directly from them... More
