I recently stayed at the InterCity Mannheim for one night. I selected this hotel because I was flying out from Frankfurt the next day and room rates in Frankfurt were extremely high. I was able to book a room at the Intercity Mannheim for about US$78. This recently built hotel is located adjacent to the Mannheim Train Station and just a 35 minute ride on the InterCity Express (ICE) train to Frankfurt Airport. The downtown / shopping area of Mannheim is an easy 10 minute walk or alternatively you can take one of the trams that stop just outside the hotel.
Upon arrival the front office receptionist welcomed me to the hotel. She was young, energetic, and spoke fluent English. She assigned me a room on the 7th floor. The lobby and other public areas of the hotel are decorated in rich, contemporary colors, giving the feel of being in a high-end hotel. My room was of a good size, especially for a room in a European hotel at a sub-US$100 room rate. The room was nicely decorated, contained new and modern furnishings, a flat screen TV, safe, and was equipped with central heating / air conditioning.
The queen sized bed was very comfortable and had clean and crisp linens.
The bathroom was also of good size, bright, was spotless, had all new modern fixtures, and plenty of counter space. The shower stall (no bathtub) offered of plenty of room to move around.
Although the hotel is located adjacent to the train station and the train tracks, I could not hear any noise from the passing trains when the window was closed.
At check-in, the hotel will provide you with a free public transit card that you can use for the trams and buses in the central Mannheim area.
Overall, I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay at the InterCity Mannheim. All of the reception staff I encountered during my stay appeared to be in their 20's and were always pleasant and helpful in assisting guests. All of them seemed to speak fluent English.
This hotel offers new, modern, and very comfortable rooms at good rates. Of the many InterCity hotels I have stayed at in Germany, the InterCity Mannheim is the nicest and most modern. It's location next to the train station makes it a good option if you plan to visit other cities in the area or even if you are over-nighting before or after a flight into or out of Frankfurt Airport. As mentioned above, it's only 35 minutes to the airport on one of the ICE trains. The fare runs from 19-23 Euro.
As you exit the train station towards the downtown, turn left. You will see the hotel which is only a one minute walk from the station.
