“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2005

The worst part about the hotel is its location, practically under a motorway with main roads on all sides. The area has no facilities at all and no local bars or shops. We stayed at the hotel on a half board arrangement but the dining room only serves breakfast and we were forced to walk 1 km down the road to an Italian restaurant which served very indifferent food. The minibars were empty and the lifts were extremely slow, which was a problem with a coachload of guests in a 16 storey hotel. The hotel is also very close to the railway and sleep was interrupted by trains and barking dogs. The breakfast was perfectly acceptable and serving staff pleasant, but this is not a hotel for a romantic break or indeed any kind of holiday. As far as being a 'base' for a trip to Heidelberg, it was not a good choice by our tour operator, Travelsphere.

I agree with the previous reviewer, i myself visited Ludwigshafen on a school trip with a school from london and although i don't like to see myself as fussy, i didn't like it at all. Being a teenager, my mates and i were always trying to find ways of getting in contact with each other (the hallways were patrolled by teachers), we discovered that you could easily fit through the gap in between the wall which seperated the two room's balconies and the balconies railings itself. Also, the railings on th balcony were very low so not suitable for small children.

This must be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in . It is very basic and unwelcoming. It is also in a not very nice part of town, lots of dark street , groups of young men hanging about in dark under passes and next door to the railway station. There is no food at night in the hotel and nowhere to get food within walking distance if you dare to leave in the dark.
At breakfast next morning most of the other guests appeared to be building trade workers.

Not a pleasant experience especially for a woman on her own.
