The hotel is tucked in a corner of the Dom Cathedral square, next to the Guttenberg Museum. The square is pedestrian only, but we did drive our rental car right up to the door to offload our bags, then had to park about 2 blocks away in a city garage (the hotel credits the cost back to you). Very quaint,... More

With apologies for those of you reading this who come from outside the UK and who won't have a clue what I'm talking about, the Schwan is like Marmite in that you'll either love it or hate it. I don't think there's any middle ground. We first stayed there about twelve years or so ago and little has changed so... More

We arrived at the hotel at about 14h00 and when we found no one we decided to do the Gutenberg Museum Tour. Afterwards we found Ushi who was very friendly and helpful. The Rooms are very big. The bathroom was nice and modern. Don't let the furniture put you off. The beds are comfortable and clean. Wifi worked well and... More

I stayed at the Hotel Schwann for a conference in the Rheingoldhalle. It turned out to be a much better choice than the soulless Hilton with a nice 5 min walk in the morning to get to the conference. The hotel is small and family run, but was very friendly and pleasant and good value. It's next door to the... More

I had been on a two week business trip where I was booked in large, efficient hotels with crowded dining rooms and high priced Internet access, so the Schwan was just what I wanted. Small, family run, and just off the main square, the Schwan is quaint and quiet (at least inside), and the proprietors were helpful and a pleasure... More

I stayed in Mainz just for one night for a business trip. This hotel was clean, quiet and charming, and located in a nice area of Mainz. I would definitely stay here again. The price was also quite good.

We probably stayed here much longer than we should; eight days, although we were at a part of our journey where we didn't much want to pick up and move every other day, plus we wanted to learn as much about Mainz as possible. We did a lot of walking, visiting shops, doing laundry, etc. As others have mentioned, Klaus... More

I will be brief; my review would have been 3-4 stars except on the last night of my stay, while ready to entertain a dinner guest, the owners informed me "the credit card machine is broken, and I would need to pay in cash." This is a scam. I had major problems to get cash on such short notice as... More

We arrived in Mainz on bicycles, wet and dirty from a long ride in terrible weather. This was the last available room in Mainz and we feel so lucky that we got it. The owners were wonderful and even helped clean us up before going into the hotel. The room was lovely & charming. The location couldn't be better. We... More

They say you have to start with the good things in a critic. So here you go: One good thing though it is quite central located... here the rest: In the first night we had to switch on the light as some people were entering our room. Turned out it was the attached room separated with a thin wooden door,... More
