Hotel is situated next to the railway station, which is not an issue, however you can hear trams from the street early in the morning. Room was clean and spacious, even with the conference table and 6 chairs:) I was missing the carpet on the floor. Other than that, all was fine, good breakfast.

Not really much to complain about here. Staff is very friendly and courteous. The rooms are ok in size, bathroom is ok as well. Not the best hotel ever but clearly a good destination for a few nights in Kassel.

My second stay at the hotel! Friendly staff still there, coffee maker in room still there - but drinks in fridge are now charged for. Wifi still free (but no you need a new code each day, which wasn't clear when I checked in - useful to bear in mind). Oh, and you get a free public transport ticket for... More

Stayed one night in a family room that was spacious with all the amenities that we needed. The bathroom was a good size and the beds were comfortable. We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant which was very good, the hamburger was amazing and the kids menu was a success with my 3 kids. The service was excellent, the waitress... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this moderately priced hotel. My room was large, clean and renovated - it even had a balcony. The wifi worked great, and I got a free weekend transit card. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect. The only downside was the street noise (mostly trams), which didn't bother me but might... More

Ok, if you want a high-class ultra status hotel.....this is not the one for you. If you want a hotel between "Hercules" and the Fulda River, which is very comfortable, and has some old style charm, then this meets your needs. Several notes, no parking connected to the hotel, but the "City" parkhaus is right under the side of it... More

I have now stayed at this hotel three times, in three different rooms, and all of them have been great: clean, modern, with wood floors, comfortable beds and desks. It's an old building with high ceilings, and lots of light in the rooms. Some of the rooms are on the street with the streetcars, but then windows close quite tightly,... More

Best Western Hotel Kurfuerst Wilhelm I is located near the highspeed ICE train station and that's about the best you can say. The hotel itself is rather mediocre with some interesting mix of art and kitsch.

In a charming 19th c. building with character (but modern rooms and baths), this hotel is IDEAL for visiting Kassel via the EC/IC station just a block away, with frequent tram service both to the main part of the city and to the castle and waterworks up the hill. Breakfast was perfectly adequate and my room was extremely comfortable, with... More
