The few negatives was that the shower was set on the 3 stream power save setting and nothing I could do or my friends could do would fix it. We asked reception to take a look during the next room service, but it was never fixed. The other disappointment was that the room was not ready when we went to check in at 3pm. One room was ready, so we left all the bags in that room, but if we were arriving after a major flight or just needed a shower, this was not available ready to go. It was ready when we can back after diner. Sauna and gym are unusable and felt like a dungeon.
I was disappointed that I was woken by room service twice at 9am, including one of those days being a lazy Saturday. I was in a room at the end of the corridor and I appreciate that they have to start somewhere, but 9am was a bit much after enjoying Stuttgart’s night life.
The road is rather noisy, so do try and stay in a room which is not on the main road.
But we move on..
Great location, with a minor walk to MaybachStr U-Bahn station which is like 6 stops to the centre (Hauptbahnhof) on line 6, line 13 also services this station but goes across town, rather than to the centre. Here’s a tip, if you arrive on at Hauptbahnhof go to the tourist info centre and get a 3 day pass for like 10 Euros, you have to show your hotel booking, but that’s super cheap compared to 1 day pass which isn’t made for the tourist and you may not be aware of. These tickets are also available from the Hotel.
Breakfast which was included in the booking was excellent and my friends commented every morning “this is the best coffee in Europe,” ..every single morning and the fact I they had 2-3 each morning wasn’t a giveaway to me. Great selection of teas and food was plentiful and well varied, yoghurt was rubbish. Though they close late at 11am, they didn’t mind me sitting in the dining room until I finished my plate, well they didn’t show they minded.
Internet is free for 30mins in the lobby (and dining room) and it was no problem getting a pass once in the morning and once in the evening. Skyped in the evening so decent connection. Reception has some free apples on some afternoons which was a nice touch.
The entire Hotel has a classy feel to it, and I compare this to the Ibis Budget Hotel next door which was advertising rooms for 63 Euros per night, I doubt I paid much more booking the hotel from Sydney about a month ago! The rooms are a good size (for Germany and Europe), factoring the cost, I would highly recommended the TOP Kongresshotel.
