The hotel is located in the pedestrian zone and is a 5 minute walk to TU Darmstadt and the "darmstadium" congress center. The restaurant in the garden is nice and pleasant. Unfortunately, the hotel facilities are lacking - the elevator is (permanently?) out of order, the showers were cold (no hot water for me one morning and my colleague in...

The hotel has very friendly staff and are quite helpful, especially Mr. Hollis. The rooms are simple with a german rustic touch, especially in the top floors where the old wooden structures are visible. A good deal for the price - try the Wiener Schnitzel with Spaetzle!

The first time I went to this restaurant it was excellent service. I sat inside and the waiter was a nice gentleman. I used my German app on my iPhone and worked great. The second time I went with my husband and sat outside but our waiter was grumpy. The third time I took a colleague and we had the...

On recommendation from friends who had been there the previous evening, we decided to have our lunch here - a big disappointment. We chose the set menu that had a couple of choices on it. The starters were OK (small salad, small soup). The mains were very basic, essentially battered fish & tasteless potato salad, battered chicken & chips -...

So the hotel itself is known for being one of the very historic ones(reportedly the oldest) in Darmstadt. It's centrally located in Luisenplatz, the main shopping area and well connected to the rest of city. The rooms are dated but well maintained with very friendly staff at service. Not bad for short business visits to Darmstadt.

Location 10/10 (right in the center, in front of a supermarket, close to many restaurants, bars) Very clean rooms, good size. They were a bit old, but very cozy. Breakfast was good, fine selections of cheese, juices, and cold cuts. Friendly staff. 8/10

Bockshaut is located near the university of Darmstadt, it is old in all ways, and definitely needs a large upgrade. The rooms are cold and in very need of a redecoration. This also goes for the bathrooms. The hotel also has a restaurant with a small menu. The food, as the hotel, needs an upgrade. The wine list is short,...

First time stayed at this hotel. Room was small, but sufficient for me. It is a little dated, but then it is an old hotel building. The bed slept just fine, and while the room didn't have a great view, I was really there only to sleep. The big attraction to me was the central location...just a few steps from...

I had reservations for two nights here. After arriving in Frankfurt, we drove for 2 hours trying to find the place. I even stopped at a police station, and he said I was close to it. He said I would have to park on a street to get to it, and then take a footpath from the street to the...
