Reviewed August 22, 2012

It was said that the hotel would be about 4km from the city centre and the impression that we had that it was much more far away. It is in the middle of nowhere. The only option for eating nearby is a Ibis hotel. The only transport to the city is a bus that is schedule for 30 and 30 minutes. On Sundays the bus has one hour interval. If you take the bus to go back home during the night be prepared to stop in the middle of the darkness in a road with no side-walk. If you are not with car is better to carry a torch. The person in the reception was extremely rude when we arrived. We were in a group of six and the receptionist said that we would need to pay firstly before he gives any information about the place. We almost gave up to be there. However the Ibis nearby was with unavailable. When I asked to pay by card he through my card in the reception desk clearly showing that he was not happy. After the whole group have paid the receptionist indeed gave us the information about transportation and the city, but the first impression was extremely negative and he even said some unpleasant comments that I thought was a bit of prejudice. Apart from the terrible service and the poor location, however, it is important to say that the room was very good for a low budge price and we were very happy with the cleanness of the bathroom that are located outside the room. I would not recommend for a single traveller but for a group of more people could be an option.

We were very pleased with the manager and the accommodation. Quite frankly we were skeptical about staying in a place where the showers and toilets were down the hall. Upon entering our room we were very impressed with how efficiently it was laid out. Unless you're staying in one place for a few days, why pay extra for a large room which you won't be doing anything but sleeping in? Next we took showers and found them to be very nice and clean. Better than some showers that we've seen in motel rooms. Same for the toilets. We never had to wait to use either. The large window that could be opened fully made the room seem more spacious. That night we found the bed to be one of the most comfortable that we'd slept on. We will now always look for a Formule1 when we're just in need of a room for the night. Keep in mind that they're usually not near any sights. We'd also skip the breakfast they offer. Better can generally be found nearby.

If you don't have a lot of money this is the place to stay but if you can afford to spend a little more I would recommend doing so as the F1 is very simple and a little depressing. Our experience with the manager wasn't very positive as he was quite rude and didn't seem to have time to help us. We would pay more next time and stay in a more positive location.

We vere tvo famalies hwo overnights at Formule 1 in Kassel. When we arrived, the three rooms we got vere smokers room, and the smell were outstanding. Our oldest son (15 years old) did not get much sleep that nigth. And my selv, I wake up early in the morning with a headdad.

When we arrived to the hotel and found out, that the three rooms vere smokers room, I talked to the manager of the hotel, and he was not willing for helping us. I said, that we had never order any hotelrooms for smokers, and we had ordret the rooms in the mounts of april.

The manager of the hotel said, that I should had said, that we did not want rooms for smokers, and that he had given the rooms as good as he could. But three room and all for smokers, that was not at all good enough.

And other thing: The 2. floor, we stayed on, was not cleen at the floor, you could se that it was long time ago there has been a cleaning.

We have been to many of Formule 1´s hotels, and we have never seen a hotel of this standard. But next time, we will, defently be more carefully when we makes the reservations.

Really bad experience getting a room next to a prostitutes room, but after a very long drive we had no alternative for the night...

Not a recommended place to stay for a family.

- When our children asked "what is that noise" we had to explain why...!

We will never come back... ':-(
