This hotel is steeped in history. The original 'Belle Epoque' features have been retained, while facilities have been completely modernised. Don't miss out on the superb buffet breakfast. Rooms and beds very comfortable. Soundproofing is excellent. Service is superb across the board.

This hotel has many beautiful touches such as the recently renovated rooms which are large and comfortable and the beautiful downstairs bar. The hotel does need to update its air conditioning. And, hopefully when the outside entrance is completed, it will be beautiful and welcoming. We would stay here, again.

Here's what I emailed Steve, who inquired about Wiesbaden and the hotel via Trip Advisor. What I love in particular is the hotel's location. You can just meander via the long pedestrian walk stretching all the way thru town, and not have to use a car. Matter of fact driving around town is quite a different experience than driving in...

I travel a lot and I have never had friendlier staff, and staff willing to help at a moments notice than at this hotel! The location is within blocks of the best Wiesbaden has to offer: parks, shopping, restaurants, casino, German Fests, and anything else one wants for a great time.

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.
