“Smart and modern”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The hotel is modern and right next to the railway station. My room was a nice sized double with a beige and cream minimalist decor. It had a good sized wardrobe and cabinet and wide work top. A TV was mounted above. WiFi was available at 17c/minute charge or daily rates. The bathroom was small but had all that was required in a well-designed package. My room looked out on to the station platforms and railway tracks but I heard nothing at all during the night.
Dinner was buffet style and it was of excellent quality with choices available for each of the three courses.
Breakfast buffet was streamlined (in the sense that things were laid out in logical order) with the standard range of cooked and cold items. There was an excellent selection of muesli varieties and half a dozen really delectable jam offerings.
The whole hotel oozed business cool and efficiency - save for that WiFi charge. Don't expect hugs and smiles.

Room Tip: rooms numbered x01 to x20 look out on the train station; rooms numbered x21 and up look out on the b...

first time to Darmstadt for business trip, ideally located next to the train station (no noise from train nor from neighbours) this new hotel has everything you need for a reasonable price
it is a clean room with a safe, enough hangers in the warbrobe, a place for your luggage, small tv, airco, desk, armchair, hair dryer, enlarging mirror, very nice breakfast choice, nice very expresso, peach-maracuja jam, crispy bacon and friendly staff !

good to know : no amenities in the bathroom (shower), don't forget your shampoo if you have sensitive skin/hairs (it is a shampoo/shower/handwash gel), WIFI is not free and the bar is closing quite early (10PM I think)

In the frankly unexciting hotel scene Darmstadt offers, this is better than most: clean modern rooms, good breakfast choice and a generally efficient staff. It does lack some of the facilities you tend to find in newer hotels like a fitness centre and the WiFi fee is annoying when travelling for business, but that is a more general issue in Germany not necessarily with the hotel. If you are a light sleeper ask for a room on the front side as the back of the hotel is immediately facing the train tracks coming into town and can be noisy in the morning.

On checking in on 13.03.2013 around 20.00/20.30h the receptionist woman name Karoline/a was really quite rude. In any way she was showing that she wants quickly to get rid of us and we were the only people on the reception?!? She was rude and arrogant with another customer via the phone as well. She let us with so uncomfortable impression that we neither had breakfast nor even wanted to had a drink or whatever in this hotel.

Nice Hotel primarily meant for Business travellers or overnight halt. I stayed her for a period of 10 days and was kind of compfortable by the law of averages. This was my first time in Darmstadt so I don't know if this was the best hotel or not. Its certaily high on cleaniliness but I guess has been designed from the point of low expense by the owners of the chain. House keeping is efficient but will not follow your request for a clean up or out of the turn help as its scheduled and will be done when its supposed to be done. but when they do it they do it well so no complains if you are okay following the schedule.
Breakfast is monotonous witha fixed Menu and thats the only time the Restaurant functions effectively rest all times its vacant, sleepy and haunted if I may say. I guess its designed that way to encourage people to have Breakfast but avoid other meals. Having said that the Monotonous breakfast happens to grow on you if you are on a long stay because of lac of option you start making ur choices in that and learn to love what you get.
The Location is Phenomenoal and has eatries, Cinema hall, Gym, Sisha Bar, Police station, Post office, Tram station, Bus station, Railways staion within a walking distance of 50-100 steps.
The Hotel provides a free pass for local transport to all resident guests which is a major plus and is like having the entire fleet at your disposal and i really enjoyed it.
The staff is helpfull and curteous, the black sheeps are always present in all the teams but it depends if you get to deal with them. As a frequent traveller i now choose not to engage with them and take advantage of the better staff. Its my happiness why should i allow others to spoil it.
Over all its a good hotel and I would reccomend the stay.
Cons: Train Noise/Single towel/lack of TV channels in English

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the 5th Floor.

I stayed here for a 2 week period just after the hotel opened on business.
On arrival the receptionist was friendly and helpful. She managed to allocate me room despite it being around 10 am.
The rooms were basic but comfortable. Obviously as it was almost brand new it was modern and bright. Flat screen TV, hairdryer, electronic safe etc. I slept very well during my stay. Internet access in the rooms seemed pricey.
Outside there were several places to eat within walking distance as well as numerous public transport links (tram, bus, taxi rank). There was also a supermarket, pharmacy and paper shop located within the train station.
Breakfast was average. I never saw food being served in the evenings but I guess it was...? There was a bar and internet facilities within the hotel reception.
You certainly couldn't sleep with the window open due to the noise of the trains outside. I guess this goes hand in hand with a convenient location next to the main railway station. Overall a nice and convenient place to stay.

A budget sort of hotel right next to the main station in Darmstadt and walking distance of ESA. The rooms are of a fair size but spartan in a German manner. One tiny flat pillow; one tiny little towel. Breakfast is OK but the restauramt claims it is open in the evening but in two nights I never saw it open. There is a very overfussy and complicated heating/cooling system in the room which when you touch it very helpfully says 3% and then does something completely random. OK for the overnight business stay. Ask for a room facing away from the railway track unless you lke th sound of trains.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the railway track unless you lke th sound of trains.
