“Great location, very nice staff, jaded look”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

The location is quite exceptional, close to the "Quadrate" in Mannheim. The rooms are actually really large (we had a superior room), but the over all look shows signs of wear and tear (stains in the carpet, everything looking just out of date). The bathroom however was a disaster. Claustrophobic doesn't even begin to describe it. Plus, ugly blackish stains on the ceiling which hung so low, that people just a tad bigger than me might feel really uncomfortable... Plus, no amenities whatsoever (and remind you, it is a 4 star property) - no real soap, no shampoo, no sewing kit... The staff on the other hand is exemplary. Friendly, helpful and really on their toes. I had some trouble with a cab and the night manager took great care to solve it, as did the day manager when it turned out that they didn't have my reservation in their system. All in all, considering that the property as such is a grand old house, I would suggest a major renovation and then this might be a prime spot.

We are staying here for a conference and it is great. Our room is well appointed, the breakfast is extensive with a choice of cereals, yogurts, fish, meats, cheeses, eggs and sausages and bacon, breads whatever. The location could not be better, it is 15 minutes to the university, 10 minutes to the train station and it is across the street from the water tower and park. The staff are quite good, with varying degrees of proficiency in English. The pool and spa are spotless and quite nice.

This hotel is very centrally located at a beautiful spot -- the Art Deco Rosengarten, with a little park, fountains etc. But the hotel itself is in need of renovation, has small rooms in an outdated decor, and needs a thorough cleaning and fresh coat of paint. Overpriced for what it is.

Dear Guest,
We are happy to read that you had a pleasent stay at our Hotel and thank you for your positive feedback. Please be assured that the water in the pool was clean as it is checked on a regular basis. The house was build in 1901, therefore we do not choose to furnish the room with modern looking furniture. We hope to be able to welcome you again in the future.

You won't be disappointed with this hotel if you pick it for location. As others mention, it needs an update, but isn't too bad. The staff was nice and helpful during check-in and general questions about the area. The lobby area is a bit small and can be crowded and noisy at times. The room was dated (especially the TV) but mine had a great view of the park. I would stay there again, but I'd also check to see what other hotels can match the location. The selling point is certainly it's proximity to the train station and city center.

I staid in a standard room which I felt extremely small. In acceptable shape but old-fashioned. TV from the 60s. No free internet. Queen size bed ok. Bathroom was horrible: oldfashioned, small, bathtoub with a courtain (!), no amenities at all. Breakfast buffet average, especially regarding healthy options. Slow replacement or no replacement at all if you come a bit late. Service missing in action. Try to avoid it until they have invested some money in updating the premises.

You clearly feel that the hotel needs a full refurb. It does not feel like a good place to stay.
Sticking to the facts the carpet in my room is heavily stained and I found a tissue and papers on the floor when I came in. I am not planning to come back.
