The Leonardo Royal, together with the Maritim Parkhotel and the Dorint, is one of the leading hotels in Mannheim, all of which are within walking distance of the city center and the railway station. Until last September this hotel was the Steigenberger Mannheimer Hof, with a reputation of more than 60 years.
When you enter it, you are in a large lobby with an unobtrusive decoration and a pleasant hardwood floor, which you find everywhere in the hotel. The elevators definitely show their age, but are working properly, and having reached your room, you see the traditional character of this hotel. I wouldn’t recommend a standard single room, as they are quite small, I had a de luxe single room. It had an essentially square cross section, quite roomy dimensions, whitewashed walls without decoration, and there was a large desk with a single chair. My room was on the court side and during my whole stay there wasn’t any noise or other disturbance. This is an ideal environment if you have work to do, and I like such a simple environment, but this might not be everyone’s ideal. The bathroom is completely in grey ceramic tiles, amenities like a rainshower (over the bathtub) are all there, making for a tasteful environment, but some of the fittings also show their age.
The restaurant was very good, both for breakfast and for dinner, a music cabaret, the Schatzkistl, is a place frequently visited by people who ae not staying at the hotel.
If you are an international traveler usually staying at Hiltons or other international hotels, you should take into account that all the power outlets are of the traditional German Schuko type. Adapters for you mobile devices can be inexpensively bought at the large electrical stores in town, but you save time if you bring your own. There is free wireless internet in the rooms, which has a limited bandwidth suitable for email and scanning of the news. If you have to download large files, for 15 euros per day you can eliminate the bandwidth limit.
The Leonardo group plans to make a significant investment, which will strongly change the decoration of the hotel, giving it a lighter, more modern touch.
