“Business-like but ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Let´s be clear: Calling this hotel "City Center" is a little cheeky. You´ll need to spend 7-10 Euros cab fair to get there, if you don´t want to walk 15 minutes from the main train station in Stuttgart - which is probably as close to a city center as you might reasonably expect.

But there was a friendly welcome after arriving late early in October which was nice. The German approach to small talk is always mixed but it resulted in a minor upgrade in this medium sized business hotel. The rooms as not cramped and everything is laid out with the traveller in mind, but I was surprised to have been told that I was getting a large bed. Do not ask me what a small bed looks like No minibar in the room, but a bar downstairs open at least until 11pm, if you want a drink in the hotel. As there is little to visit in the immediate surroundings, and the hotel positioned on a main road, you´ll probably choose the bar. Good breakfast buffet with probably everything that you might expect and efficient if not unusually warm service.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing towards the back away from the main road.

Located on the outskirt of the city centre. 1/2 underground stops. Underground about 300 metres from hotel. Hotel although clean, in some areas was noted to smell of stale cigarette smoke. Rooms very bare with a lack of storage area for clothes.definately not a 4 star in my opinion. Breakfast expensive, best have breakfast in railway station one stop away as there are no visible restaurants or eating places in the vecinity of the hotel.

For starters, the hotel is not in the "City Center" but in the middle of a construction zone, a long uphill hike from the train station.
There was one frantic clerk trying to check in about 15 people. When we got to our small room, the double bed had just one pillow on it, there was no safe, the bathroom had just one glass, a leaky shower (no tub), ultra-thin towels and a coffee maker with no coffee. There's a charge for the bottled water. But...the air conditioning worked.

Room Tip: Don't get a room overlooking the busy road.

I expected it to be much more beeing the premium brand over Ibis. Yes it is more premium but absolutely not worth the price difference. The room is very similar to budget quality although maybe a little bit bigger. The restaurant is OK and breakfast buffet is very good.

The price however does not live up to its quality.

Ok let's get this out of the way first. Michael O'Leary must have named this hotel because it isn't in the city centre! It's a 10min walk away from the Hauptbahnhof in the opposite direction. Had they been more truthful then I'd have scored it higher. Otherwise it's a standard Mercure affair but with quite small rooms. Very clean. Free wifi code given without asking but although pretty quick some sites would not load (Google frustratingly being one) meaning they have some sort of firewall issue.

I chose this hotel as it has a car park and is close to the city center - exactly what I wanted. Overall I'd recommend this hotel to others, but be aware of the following:
- it is possible to walk to the center but it's a main road with a lot of traffic so not particularly pleasant.
- my room was away from the main road so it was very quiet. No idea how good the insulation is if your room faces the main road.
- The rooms were clean and functional but a little basic, i.e. no fridge, no kettle
- My son very much enjoyed the choice of TV channels (esp. Sky Sports)
- Can't comment on the breakfast as I didn't try it.

A typical Mercure Hotel, perhaps a bit on the lower side, if you look carefully at their plain bathrooms. It was clean and the receptionist wer kind and effective.

We drove to Stuttgart on a rainy evening and, despite the GPS we missed the Hotel. The GPS brought us back but due to extensive construction work we had to go around several blocks.
