“Wierd at first look, but A-OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

It's a small hotel with some 15 rooms, with a small grocery nearby (250 m), and cafés & stores going north-west on the Marketstraße towards the Stadtkirche (church, 600 m). Arrived in the morning, before rooms were made ready. Had to leave my precious MacBook Pro and the rest of my luggage with the desk clerk who sensed my hesitation, and said she would "defend them with her life." Her attitude made me feel safe, and I later discovered this to be a characteristic of all the personnel. If you intend to come back in late on your first night, make all arrangements as you ckeck-in: it's a small hotel, so they leave you with the key to the front door, and there won't necessarily be a clerk at the front desk after 8 PM.

Was surprised with the "Home sweet home" writing on the walls of the staircase, and famous quotes inside the room, along with the shiny golden pouf. But it's an A-OK hotel, and chances are you'll meet well dressed business people, suit & tie, coming regularly. The carpet on the floor was a bit oldy, but the bed was comfortable, and the room very quiet. Was seduced by the impeccable white bathroom with plenty of blue towels, and shiny chrome. (If you are on the 3rd floor, you will enjoy not having anyone walking over your head, but will have to wait a bit for hot water to come up.)

The intelligent floor layout has the elevator and the staircase non adjacent to the bedrooms (only adjacent to one of the bathrooms). If you take one of the rooms at the "far" end of the corridor, you may not enjoy the best view, but will be separated from your only neighbour by a thick support wall: a very quiet room. This, with the corner room next to it are not the largest, but the most quiet.

The dining room (charming, somewhat Bavarian style) is only opened for a hardy breakfast: numerous types of bread, cereals, jams, juices, fresh or dried fruits, and yogurt; eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, salmon. Coffee is very good. Again, service is excellent, and the waitress will do her utmost to fetch enough English from her school years to communicate. Clients will chip-in, and help her out if she stumbles. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Stayed there four nights, and can vouch for the consistency of the service. Always found everything to be spotless, everyone to be serviceable, and would go again, alone or with my wife (did not see children), even though it is not your "hotel with a view." A bit far from the central Stuttgart if you mean to visit only the city. Conveniently located if you want to go to the zoo or the Natural History Museum. If you plan to visit Ludwigsburg by bike, your closer than starting from Stuttgart. It's only some 4 km to walk to central Stuttgart anyway. And a very pleasant walk it is, mostly through the New Castle gardens, where the duke -- or was it the king -- probably used to hunt. If you don't care for a walk, take the S-ban, the U-ban or the bus to Stuttgart (one station away on the S-ban, for 1,20 Euro "Short distance" ticket -- 2,70 Euros regular): 5 min walk to the station, a train every 5 min. Transit time will be shorter than figuring out what ticket to buy and how.

We stayed for one night but were impressed. We were text the code to get our keys, and from outside this hotel doesn't look like much it inside it was very comfortable! The room was spacious, and very clean, with excellent sound proofing and black out blinds. We choose this hotel for its close proximity to the Cannstatter Wasen where the spring fest was on. It was perfect for this, a short ten min walk. Also very easy to get the train to and from the airport.

Hotel seems to have been recently renovated in the style of the 70s. Very clean and tidy inside, don't be put off by ouside decoration and location. Cannot review breakfast as used local bakery for coffee. Cold drink machine on site. Reception not manned but outside safe for late arrival. Would stay again.

Very nice nestled quiet hotel which is decorated with a lot of love and a very nice service. The morning buffet is not only standard and there are two or three trips which are very interesting. The staff is really friendly and takes care of any extrawishes.

a very clean hotel, everything is like new.
with the tramway it' s only 13 minutes and 2,6€ from the city center.
Breakfast is great, the personal is friendly.
It's a small hotel and there are some parking places for free

Room Tip: we had room 12, I think the biggest room

My wife and I enjoyed a comfortable stay at this hotel on a recent vacation. It is located a short walk to the Bad Cannstatt S-Bahn stop, which made for easy travel to and from downtown Stuttgart. It is indeed located at an intersection, although we found the sound proofing to be excellent. The shower was quite small - would not recommend if you are over 250 lbs. The beds and pillows were comfortable, and everything was clean, with the leather couch showing a bit of wear. Be warned that they advertise wireless accessibility but it is an additional charge (I believe wireless should be an included utility, like water or power in this day and age). You need a room key to enter the hotel, and the reception desk was intermittently manned -- just keep ringing the doorbell and they'll eventually come. Overall, the value matched the price.

The hotel is located on a busy crossroads, and the soundproofing cannot drown out all the road noise, so you may find it best to bring ear plugs in order to get a peaceful night's sleep. Everything else about this hotel is great: friendly staff, excellent breakfast, very clean, feels freshly decorated. Just a few minutes walk from Bad Cannstadt railway station.
