“Good location, superb breakfast room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

The hotel is next to the baroque gardens of Fulda. Rooms are nice, decently large and well furnished. Sparkling-glittering bathroom (literally blinding shiny).

The breakfast room is jaw-dropping, in a baroque room built around 1720s. It's hard to make any decent picutres of the tromp l'oeil painting of the ceiling, especially with a phone camera, so use your imagination.

At the reception the staff was mixed (the evening chaps were decidedly helpful but cold-to-grumpy, the morning lady smiling even if she had all hands full). The breakfast restaurant is definitely understaffed, which induces delays in serving coffee, or freeing up a table, but it is still worth to breakfast there.

In the lobby there's a PC with free Internet and able to print on a laser b/w, should you need to. The bar has a cozy atmosphere and a matching bartender.

Room Tip: The rooms on the corners (I had 114) are more shielded from the open atrium

This hotel is utilizing the old Orangerie of the castle for banquet Hall and breakfast room. It is very centrally placet with excellent parking facilities, very nice rooms with good bahtrooms.
The breakfast is overwhelming. The restaurant in the basement is worthy of as many stars as you can think of.

Fulda is easy to reach from most parts of Germany and its history is interesting -- convenient for the businessman, then, with something for the trailing spouse, and many smaller conferences accordingly are held there. The Maritim directs its attentions, I believe, to this conference trade. Maybe that's why Internet access through the hotel connection costs an arm and a leg: For most people who stay there, it's "on expenses".

That grumble out of the way, here's one more: The rooms are set around an atrium. (This deserves its own comment: I think that it should be protected as a monument to the architecture and interior decoration that made the 1990s the 1990s -- wonderful, and sure to evoke the slight dépaysement that comes from looking at pictures of women's bygone hairstyles -- "Did we ever REALLY think that was sexy?") When conference guests are assembled at the bottom of the atrium well, hitting the white wine and enjoying vigorous conversation, you'll wish you had your earplugs: Door from little foyer onto the balcony closed, door between bedroom and little foyer closed, and the noise still seeps in.

What else? A fifteen-minute walk from the railway station and shopping district, within a short stroll of all the historic bits and bobs, itself built into a bit of surplus-to-requirements castle; impeccably clean; lovely en-suite bedroom / bathroom, comfortable bed, lots and lots of hot water for my morning shower, big fluffy towels; an absolutely grand breakfast room in High Baroque plasterwork and a breakfast buffet of unparalleled variety and splendour. Do not, on any account, miss the sandstone sculpture ("Paroxysmenweib / Woman Writhing") at the entry to the cellar dining hall. Early Mannerism? Designed to be set atop a rampart and viewed from fifty metres below, not **shudder** face to face? Work of a sculptor reared by wolves, his rendition of the human female form constructed from lupine hearsay? You be the judge.

In a nutshell, then: Find a conference in Fulda and stay at the Maritim. You'll love it. (You'll be among the atrium chatterers, not up in your room wondering when the other guests will get to bed.) And those folks in Bought Ledger who handle your re-imbursement forms? So they bleed at the eyes when they see what it cost the firm to let you check your e-mail. Do you care?

We went to Fulda for a friend's wedding, which took place in the neighbouring castle. Because of the snow problems on the trains we arrived quite late, but this was not a problem with check-in. The room was nice and very clean. We didn't have breakfast there because it wasn't included in the price of the room and it was expensive so if you prefer to eat in your hotel, make sure you have it included in your room rate. There are plenty of nice bakery and cafés around to have breakfast for much cheaper. The location was great for exploring Fulda, even the train station within a reasonable distance so if you don't have much luggage you could get away with walking to the hotel. Fulda is quite small so the hotel was within walking distance of all the sights. The only thing I could complain about was that you could hear some of the hall noise.

This hotel probably has the best location in Fulda - you step out of the breakfast room (which is a magnificent old Orangery) into the park in the center of Fulda. The park has fountains, a lake and a children's play area. The center of the town is only a few minutes walk.
The food in the cellar restaurant is excellent, and very reasonably priced. They have a menu in English (for us non-German speakers) and our waiter also spoke English, as did the desk staff.
There is an indoor pool, which we had to ourselves on our weekend trip. A tad cool for my liking but probably Ok for most people.
Only downside is perhaps the lack of air-conditioning in the rooms so it could get rather warm in the heat of summer.

Most of this hotel is ultra modern with sleek rooms and a great pool and sauna but the Diannakeller where we ate dinner both nights is in a vaulted cellar and the breakfast room is in the Baroque Orangerie. The breakfast buffet was enormous with even champagne offered, be sure it is included in your rate. This is a great hotel within an easy walk of all the sights of Fulda.
