This was a real find. We were looking for a hotel between Stuttgart and Konstanz, and this hotel met those criteria, but it turned out to be more than just an adequate overnight stay. The hotel is about 5 km off the autobahn (exit at Empfingen), so it is quite convenient to the autobahn. It wasn't hard to find the town, although a detailed map is helpful.
Glatt itself is a charming small town (perhaps 1000 people) set in a river valley. As the other review mentioned, there is a small moated castle (now a museum) right across from the hotel. The large town park is also just a block away.
In some ways the layout is similar to a two-story American motel, with a long central corridor with the rooms on either side of the corridor. The rooms are large and the second-story rooms have balconies (or at least our rooms did). Everything was spotlessly clean. The WI-FI worked well.
We had supper at the hotel restaurant, and it was wonderful - perhaps the best pork tenderloin I have ever had. The breakfast also was very good. It was the typical German buffet breakfast, with a very extensive selection and excellent quality. If I remember correctly the jams were homemade.
The lady at reception spoke excellent English, so there should be no language barrier for English-speaking tourists.
Prices are very reasonable for a European hotel. All in all I highly recommend this hotel (and its' restaurant!).
