This hotel is situated in the heart of the town, everything is in a walkable distance. The rooms are huge, clean and extremely comfortable. I liked especially the athmosphere in the hotel. The spa is recommendable and the service is unique.

Average hotel. A lot changed since our previous visit. Some rooms are big but no bath. Busy with renovations while we were there, so it was a bit noisy. Situated very nicely close to the shops and a bus stop.

The old Historical hotel in the center of Wiesbaden carries the memory of all the past luxury of the place. Yet a full renovation is needed to match the latest standards of comfort (sound insulation, air conditioning, room design, USB plugs, modern desks etc). A full renovation started last year and is expected to be completed this summer. Will that... More

I was transferred here from another local hotel which was overbooked. At first it all looked very grand, but I was given a newly refurbished room which was really quite small.

Dear Mr. griangraf2001, Thank you for your feedback via tripadvisor. That is correct, you get a new renovated room, but without a working desk.
