“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for a business trip and left one day earlier because we did not at all feel comfortable: The rooms seem to differ in quality, however our room had cold tiles on the floor, the wallpaper was coming down and the bathroom wall was covered in moulder. On top of that the staff was quite unfriendly and the breakfast was really, really bad. This was so NOT worth its money and we were glad to leave as soon as possible. If you want to stay somewhere nice in Gießen, pick another hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

I have used the hotel before on trips to Geissen. The staff are friendly. The single rooms are small but immaculately clean with new bathrooms.
The buffet breakfast is excellent with lots of fresh friuit and meats.
Very centrally located in Geissen 1 minue from the station.
No bar in the evening but a well-stocked fridge in reception.

The Parkhotel Friedrichstrasse Giessen is a proof of lacking competition in hotel business in Giessen. It seems that there is not much demand for hospitality.
A small single room with a single bed and a TV of small size are the only features. The bathroom was integrated later, when the room was upgraded to an “ensuite” one. Unfortunately it’s also small in height, so I wasn't able to stand up straight in there. Last renovation was perhaps thirty years ago. When I was there remodelling of the public zones were in place. I don’t know if the did the same with the rooms.

The breakfast was included in room rate and surprisingly well: rolls, cereals, fresh fruit, cold cuts and preserves.

Friendly and helpful staff. Free wireless broadband (although connection kept dropping out from my room on 2nd floor). Very nice breakfast. Room perfectly adequate and clean, but nothing fancy. Only slight downside was the slightly damp bathroom, and noise from the restaurant / bar opposite.

  • Liked — Noise from restaurant opposite
  • Disliked — No bar in hotel
