I have been to this hotel many times. The best thing about this hotel is that this is between a guest house and commercial hotel. The people like me who does not want to stay in very commercial and sophistication environment but rather in guest house sort of arrangment, this hotel could be a good one. Most of the rooms has a small kitchen inside and you can borrow utensils free of charge from reception. So for longer stay 3-4 weeks, i do not mind cooking dinner myself. The breakfast is quite ok, but you have to tell them while booking that you want to include breakfast in your booking, its not complimentary. The complete hotel is spread in 3 buildings, the rooms in the building hosting reception is best rooms, they have little more facilities than rooms in other building. In general rooms are spacious than normal commercial hotels in the same range.
But if one intend to stay for small duration and does not want to cook, then there is a problem for dinner, as they do not have restaurant and only near by is a pizzeria and one turkey fast food shop. There is three tram stations near by, you can get 4 and 7 number tram towards city .
This hotel is best for the people who visits Mannheim for short term (3-6 weeks) assignment work in ABB or Alstom.
