This was our second visit. The main reason for staying here (and this 4 star rating) is the toplocation during the Documenta art exhibitions (walking distance). The hotel is 3 star and quite expensive. You pay for the location. The rooms are unpretentious (no airco, no minibar), and you do hear citynoise at the front (and the back: restaurantkitchen) during the evening. You can open a window. Beds are huge. Pillows very soft (you need 2). Good shower. Breakfast is quite good and is the second reason for staying here. Bummer: no fresh orange juice.
The hotel has a small car park but there are plenty of public parking garages nearby. The staff was two out of three times grumpy. Could improve a lot considering the amount you pay for their jobs. This hurts because service in German restaurants, shops and hotels is kind and with a smile.
When you get tired of the steps outside the hotel (obvious the name of the street is Treppenstrasse - in 1953 the first pedestrian zone in Germany) you can use the escalators in the mall Konigsgalerie. In the mall there is also a food court (sushi). Good restaurants are hard to find in Kassel. The Italian restaurant at the front of the hotel is not recommended. In case of emergency: opposite Stadthotel you'll find a McDondald's for your fastfood.
If the Documenta is not your goal, I would consider -except budgetwise- the Mercure hotel for staying in Kassel.
