“Not the best nights sleep”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

For me, as I am getting on in years, the most important aspect for any hotel stay, particularly when on business, is a quiet comfortable room enabling a good night’s sleep.
The room and bed were comfortable but the level of street noise made sleep difficult. Also the lack of hot drink/tea/coffee facilities in the room did not enhance those restless hours. There was not any complimentary water in the room – there was water in the mini-bar but dearer per cc than the bottled beer…
On the positive side the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Do not have a room fronting the hotel.

I always stay here when travelling to Mannheim for business. Very decent business hotel with a lot of rooms. Good food, extensive breakfast, parking adjoint, nice atmoshpere, always business people in the bar during evening/night. Close to the city center. Rooms are standard size, but with all amenities. They also run a loyalty card program, which is nice added benefit for frequent visitors.

I'm not saying this is a 4 star hotel but it was a good middle level hotel with a well designed room, with a few amenities even thought the bathroom looked and bit like a hospitals bathroom, breakfast was fine and if I was back in the area I'd return.

Hard to say anything negative and still you feel there is something that appears 20 years old or maybe too german? It is the room enterieur which pulls the hotel into the garni-level even though -again- the hotel is all good >> very good breakfast (espresso at no estra charge) // very large suite // well located // fast checking in+out // Espresso machine in room // fast internet charged // extensive ameneties // my room was a bit noisy (street).
I'll come back!!

A modern functional hotel. Nothing spectacular but clearly above the rest of the mediocre hotels in Mannheim. All in this segment are very boring, unspectacular and gray. Nothing to get excited about. Nothing much to say about.
Major flaw: at a business hotel one expects wifi nowadays. In some rooms (back end of the hotel) I got no connection to any network.

Room Tip: On the front is better for wifi.

This hotel is a nice city and business hotel in Mannheim. The location is right next to the congress center and has even a direct access to it.
The rooms are a bit worn out and rather typical for a business/congress hotel.
The advantage of the hotel is the great location. It is also located next to the Rosengarten and 'wasserturm' which is a very nice park in the heart of Mannheim. You are also within minutes in the shopping area of Mannheim.
The service is perfectly fine and very helpful.
The breakfast is good and you will find all you need in the morning. Furthermore they have a nice bar with a good selection of liquors.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the front (big street)

We stayed here for a meeting. The location was excellent, a direkt inside walkway connected the hotel to the congress center, the shopping mile was just 600 feet away. Rooms were OK, the fitness center/ spa was excellent, with state of the art equipment and usually quite empty.
Breakfast excellent.
The hotel is not air-conditioned, no problem with us, as we stayed in fall. However, I would not go there in summer.
The major drawback of our stay was the personnel: Our room was cleaned only when we asked three or four times for roomservice, although we were basically out of the room all day. A person that was almost funny in his unpoliteness was the barkeeper. He seemed almost deaf, although the bar was nearly empty it was very difficult to convince him to give us drinks, not to speak of peanuts or the like. He seemd to be a soccer fan, as he turned up the TV volume to the point where a conversation was impossible. Ask to turn down the volume, he just replied that the other guests wanted to see the soccer game at this volume. Surprisingly, there were only about 3 other guests who looked into the direction away from the TV.
