“Great location, great perks.”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I recently stayed one night at Central-Hotel Kaiserhof. It's right across the street from the main train station in Hannover and easy to spot.

It has a lovely terrace restaurant and bar- we had a wonderful waitress and departure lunch there. She offered us an English menu and patiently explained the German specials menu (featuring chanterelles!).

Our room was small but cheerfully decorated with free wifi and the usual amenities (hair dryer, toiletries, etc.). Glass bottled still and sparking water, orange juice, and beers were all in our mini bar and free of charge! Rare these days- we could hardly believe it. There was some noise from the station side of the hotel when we opened our big windows, but we really needed the air flow so it was worth it to us. We loved the bustling view so would choose it again anyway.

The free breakfast inside was amazing and there were paying patrons in the restaurant enjoying the daylight-filled room for a breakfast with friends. All of the staff were gracious and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to friends, and the online booking site we used got us a great deal (1/2 off normal room price). A total win in every way!

I spent one evening here this week, with three colleagues. My room on the 5th floor was swelteringly hot, which I tried to remedy by opening the windows. Which meant I got to listen to lots of street noise all night. The room itself was alright, free wifi is always a plus. Breakfast offered a decent selection.

When I checked out, I paid €10 for parking in the garage a block away. I was given a ticket and instructions on how to use it to exit the garage. Of course this didn't work, so I paid another €8.50 to park (€18.50 in total now). Pressed for time to make an appointment, we left without contacting the desk. When my colleague called on my behalf a day later (she speaks much better German), she was informed that we surely must have made a mistake and the hotel can not do anything for us. In theory, there is a note somewhere in their computer that the next time a reservation is made under my name at this hotel, I'm to receive another €10 parking voucher. Since the first one didn't work, I have little faith in the second.

I found the hotel's handling of this situation just obnoxious enough that I will probably stay elsewhere the next time I'm in Hannover, €10 credit notwithstanding.

Centra-Hotel Kaiserhof is situated just outside of the central station. (If you come out of the main entrance of the station, look towards 2 o'clock direction.) The single room is rather small, but adequate for a couple of nights stay with a decent free wi-fi and also free mini-bar (which contains 2 small bottles of water, a orange juice, a bear and a packet of peanuts). The room is clean and the bathroom is a reasonable size. (No bathtub, but a good specious shower).

Breakfast was very good with a wonderful selection of cooked eggs, bacon, continental breakfast (ie: ham, smoked salmon, cheese, salad), fruits, yogurt, cerials and bread. I also had a dinner at the hotel restaurant which was well cooked and reasonally priced.

Only the downside is that street noise may wake you up in the very early morning (5:30am) as they seem to clean with a rather noisy machine every morning and also tram starts at around 6am which stops just outside of the hotel. I am quite a heavy sleeper and noise normally does not bother me much, but I was woken by the outside noise for both mornings that I stayed (even though the windows were properly shut), so I wil not recommend this hotel if you are a light sleeper.

Otherwise, if you are travelling from the airport to the central Honnover by train (about every 20 min, takes about 15 min and cost EUR3.10) and/or need to take an underground from the central station (less than 1 min walk from the hotel), you will find this hotel very convenient due to being the prime location.

Situated in a convient area, in the city center. The rooms are quite small and nice decorated and clean. The products in the rooms's bar are given for free, as well as the internet which is something you dont't easily find in Germans hotel. It has a nice restaurant just at the entrance. I particulary liked the breakfast, it was very rich and with plenty of options and was served in an area with large windows overloooking the square in front. Is really agreat way to start your morning.

The Central Hotel is a great value and the rooms are very comfortable and attractive. It is just across from the train station and an easy walk to the Christmas Market which is a delight. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A very excellent breakfast is included making the hotel a very good value and it is served in a lovely remodeled room. There has been quite a bit of refurbishing since last we were here. The only criticism would be that the bed seemed a little tired, but all in all it is a most pleasant hotel and a very good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room which has good light and is spacious.

I have stayed here once more, after 11 years of being a guest here for the first time, and this hotel is such an incredible value for the money !! This is an old-fashioned, elegant, clean and very well located hotel. It has an outstanding bar (they know how to make a good martini and an excellent caipirinha) and a superior restaurant serving quality german food. It is just across the trai station and you can stroll around the downtown of this beautiful city right from the door of the hotel. It is always a pleasure to come back to the Kaiserhof !!
