My husband comes to Giessen a couple times a year to visit friends and I had the chance to tag along for the first time in a couple of years. One of the things about coming to Giessen that is frustrating is getting a nice place to stay. You have either cheap to mid-price and not very nice or very expensive and nice. So we decided to stay at Wilhelma after the last stay of my husband and I was pleasantly surprised.
It is very basic and a bit noisy (one side faces the street and the other the train line) but for the price it was nice. I didn't like having to share the bathroom but we knew that ahead of time and even then the bathroom was nicer than a lot of hotels we stayed in Giessen. The guy running it was nice and was accommodating to the fact we came pretty late, we had planned on being there earlier but got stuck along the way. We can't comment on breakfast because we went elsewhere but it looked fine for the price.

A lot of people reviewing this Guest house seem to forget that this is indeed a guest house and not a hotel. I have been travelling the word the past few years and must say that after reading all the negative reviews, I was pleasantly surprised!

The rooms are modern and spotlessly clean, with all the needed amenities provided (only bring your own soap). The proprietor is fast, efficient and very friendly, going out of his way to make your stay comfortable. As for the breakfast. It is small, but good quality. The coffee is good and if you are used to being provided with a continental breakfast (coffee and croissant), then it is luxurious.

I highly recommend this for anyone travelling on a budget and who would like to do a bit of self catering. The place is also situated about 2 minutes walk from the train station, and 5 minutes walk from the main shopping district.
