“Quiet room in a convenient downtow location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Well appointed and convenient rooms in a good location. Some (including mine) room are in a separate building connected through an underground walkway), which is a bit out of the way. However, the rooms in this building are pretty quiet. The breakfast was very good, and the staff helpful.

On a business trip some of the most inportant factor is being able to get things done and reduce hassles to the maximum. I stayed in that hotel for 5 nights, so I had plenty of time to check it.
The hotel is OK and rooms are large and clean. However, the carpets on the walking halls are old, look used and smell like an old hotel. That is the first feeling you get when cehcking in.

The Internet provided by T-Mobile Telekon sucks. Signal is very weak in most area in the hotel but lobby. Forget using it in your room or int the breakfast area unless you have a very good antenna. I had with me iphone 4S, iphone 5, Ipad 2 and a 2012 macbook Air. Only the Air could catch the signal. In my room, I had to sit close to the door to get sufficient signal. At 19 Euros for 10 hours connection time, I choose the 34 Euro package valid for one month. But T-Mobile does not care to get you a good signal. I complained a couple of time to the managment but they seems unable to fix that.

Want to get an iron and ironning board. Wrong. You cannot get one to your room for "safety reason". To get your cloth ironed, you have to pay 3 to 5 Euros depending on what it is, or go to 2nd floor to the ironning station. The station is right in the middle of the coridor. The lighning is poor and the chain that attached the board to wall is too short so that you can drag it close to a closer light bulb. It's been 30 years I am travelling world wide and had never seen this in an hotel that class.

I always use 2 phones while on the road, one with a local sim cards to get cheap local rate for data and call and my regular cell phone so that people calling my on my usual number can get me where ever I am. But the room is mising power plugs. There is only one on top of the desk. So you need to carrefully manage charging of all your devices one by one: phones, laptop, tablet...

The AC in my room did not work ok too. I lowerred the temp control to the minimum and still had to get the window open to have a decent temperature. Shower controls uses 2 facets, hot and cold water. It takes time to get the right temp. Why not having a standard single mixer ? TV is a 20 years old tube device.

Try to get a room on the back side of the hotel, because the front street is pretty busy all the time.

This hotel is relatively clean in a fairly good location but it isn't good enough! The interior is very dated and the facilities need improving Overall it needs a massive refurbishment. It feels like it is out if the 1970s. Definitely not the sort of place we would normally stay and so we reduced our stay from two nights to one.
Staff are quite friendly and helpful.

The positive thing - Food was good - lots of choice at breakfast.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your post at tripadvisor.

Of course the furnishings etc. from an older house like Stuttgart are not comparable to the newest house of our hotel group in Düsseldorf. But our company has each year a budget for the older hotels for renovation works, also for the MARITIM Hotel Stuttgart. Unfortunately we cannot give a concrete time window at this moment now.

The compliments for our staff will be passed through to the colleagues.

We would be happy if you rethink your decision and come back to us at your next stay in Stuttgart.

Kind regards from Germany,

Matthias Maier

An early 1990s hotel with a slightly dated feel, but very well looked after as is so often the case with German hotels. Located adjacent to a small shopping centre, theatre and cinema, and a 10 minute walk into the main city centre area, or a 3 minute walk from the nearest U-bahn station.

The hotel is in two blocks, with an underground link to the lobby and restaurants, but you can also cross over outside should you feel like a bit of air, and save a coulple of minutes. The breakfast service is excellent, a very wide range of continental and cooked foods, breads, juices, even sparkling wine. The evening dinner is also very good, if a little expensive if eating a la carte. The lobby bar has outdoor seating, and catches the evening sun, and offers a nice location for a beer at a reasonable cost.

Our room in the garden wing was dated in appearance, but very well looked after and spotless. Would come again if the rate was right.

This was our first time to Stuttgart. Very nice hotel, with a nice long walk into the shopping areas. I just found the hotel rather disjointed, its two hotel, and in both different spots, but connected underground. Our room was fine, it just had no room safe, which I found odd, as the rest of our group had, The room was adequate, and so was the bathroom. Breakfast was excellent.Oh our air con never worked and the rooms main window was a bit loose so we were nervous to open it too wide. But never complained as we were in the room for such a short time

Room Tip: Its a matter of requesting a room

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your post.

It is one hotel, but located in two different buildings:
The main building with the reception, restaurants and about 250 rooms and the "park wing" with the rest of the rooms and our meeting area. The "park wing" is a bit quieter as it is located to direction of the park.

Sorry for the inconveniences with the safe. Usually, each room has a safe, perhaps this one was in service. For this case, we have also safe boxes at our reception.

We would be very happy to welcome you again while your next stay in Stuttgart.

Kind regards,

My company hosted a conference using the facilities at Maritim Hotel and it was a great event. The main presentation room was large and wonderful and the coffee/tea/water/juice flowed abundantly and conveniently. The lunch was exquisite.

The facility is generally very good.
