Motel One Stuttgart-Hauptbahnhof is a very clean, functional chain budget hotel on a superb location. It is the newer of the two Motel Ones in Stuttgart and reputedly the cleaner one. It is also slightly costlier, but given its location this should be the better choice in most circumstances.
The location of this Motel One is indeed excellent. It is just one block from Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof (main train station), making it an ideal base for day trips to other Swabian towns like Tübingen. Nearby places like Ludwigburg and Esslingen can be easily reached via the S-Bahn (suburban train) network, and the underground Hauptbahnhof S-Bahn station actually has an exit right in front of the hotel. Also, most of the interesting sights in Stuttgart are within walking distance from Hauptbahnhof; Staatsgalerie and Schlossplatz are close by, and even Hegelhaus can be reached on foot.
The central location also brings the advantage of facing large groceries and drug stores just across the street. In particular, there is a Rewe (higher-quality supermarket, plus a small bakery) that is larger than most other Rewe’s, as well as a Rossmann (drug store). For all other shopping, just head to the vibrant Königstraße, one block away.
This hotel, being pretty new, is also very clean and well-maintained. As to be expected from the chain, the room is small and amenities sparse, but is functionally laid out and well-heated. Bathroom is also very clean, though the lack of a door or a curtain for the shower booth does inevitably leads to wet floor after a shower. The staffs were well-trained and very friendly. The front desk personnel spoke excellent English and were efficient, and the maids we encountered were smiling and accommodating.
In summary, Motel One Stuttgart-Hauptbahnhof is a clean, functional, and reliable city hotel on a truly great location. Yes it is just a chain budget hotel and won’t likely awe or inspire or move you, but it definitely achieves what it professes to be, and it is very good and efficient at what it aims to do. We recommend this hotel to all economical travelers looking for a well-rounded lodging in Stuttgart.
