City Hotel, in Stuttgart’s old, unique “Bean Quarter” was my first stop on a German holiday with my nephew. The small hotel is modern and clean with nice bathrooms and an elevator and free Wi-Fi. I loved the breakfast buffet of cheeses, cold meats, fresh fruit, yogurt, and a variety of breads, jams and cereals all presented in a most appealing way. I especially enjoyed eating at a beautifully set table in the sunroom. I thought it was first class treatment to find the labeled cups on warmers for a variety of coffee choices including Espresso, Macchiato, Cafe Latte, etc. The coffee machine ground the beans fresh when you made your choice. The front desk staff speaks English. The male desk clerk was very pleasant and provided helpful information about the nearby Bean Quarter’s German and other ethnic restaurants and original shops. Most restaurants don’t open for dinner until 5pm. Locals live and work in the neighborhood and its a wonderful, safe location for strolling. There is a market, coffee shop, and sandwich shop at the subway station just a block or two from the hotel. The hotel is also just a short 10 minute walk to see the beautiful Altes Schloss and Neus Schloss in the city center and to browse on Königstraße shopping street. When we arrived, we took a cab to the hotel (8 euros form the main train station.) When we left, we took the convenient U-Bahn back to the train station for about 1,30 euros each. The day we left, when my nephew turned off his computer, unexpectedly, it started running an automatic update. He said he couldn’t turn the computer off until it finished. I went down to check out about 10 minutes late and explained the situation. My nephew came down a few minutes later. The female desk clerk’s reaction was to lecture me that I knew check out was at 12pm. That was frustrating and an uncomfortable way to end our otherwise very lovely stay. I do recommend the hotel if you will be in Stuttgart.
