Four of us shared an executive suite on the top floor. This is a no frills-type of hotel. Breakfast is not provided but there was a refrigerator in the room. Great value and plenty of room for all of us! I slept on the pull-out and it was quite comfy! Great view of the residential area. No need to rent a car. We took a train in from the Frankfurt airport and walked to the hotel. Everything within the city including the Christmas market is within walking distance. There is also a local grocery store just a 3 minute walk from the hotel.

Stayed here with my wife just before Christmas. Good location above Mainz city centre, on the Kupferberg. Great views of town skyline from the Kupferberg terrace. Easy walk down to centre of town, about 10 - 15 minutes walk if following road or quicker if going via the nearby residental area and using the elevator. Good value hotel, we had boked about 6 weeks before and got a room rate of 79 euro including breakfast. Car parking is underneath hotel, with flat rate of 12 euro per day. We had a standard room, which was usual Novotel standard of being clean and comfortable.The leisure complex is pretty good with reasonable sized pool, with sauna and steam room, note;for non German guests that the sauna and steam rooms don't allow bathing costumes to be worn. Breakfast was pretty good with good selection of hot/cold food.

We enjoyed the Mainz Weihnachtsmarkt and ate some good food in the Heiliggeist restaurant, in Mailandsgasse downtown.

Two comments for Novotel team:
Please review prices of water in mini bar: 2,90 euro for 250 ml bottle of water is a rip off and very expensive.
Possibly review start time of cleaning crew as we we awoken on a Saturday morning at 0745 by the sound of the vacuum cleaner being used in the adjacent room, maybe start times can be a bit later at the weekend?

Location – Although in the city, easy to arrive with a car and 10 minutes walk down the hill from the old city.

Haven't used dinning services.

Hotel and Room – Standard, basic and clean.

Reception - Friendly.

Bottom line – Nice hotel in the city.

I've stayed in all the hotels in Mainz at one time or another. The thing I like best about the hotel is the bar. away from the front door, laid out so you can sit with large groups or intimate tables. All the bar staff are friendly and attentive and you get nibbles with your drink. not too far from the town centre. has a small gym which is a luxury and what they call a swimming pool but its more spa than lengths swimming. rooms are large but feel more budget end of the market. most uncomfortable pillow ever, like a rag bag, and the thinnest towels ever. couldn't decide whether the noise every night I could not ignore was the lift (which wasn't that close to my room) or the air conditioning. Food is fine.

Stayed in this hotel in Sept’13. Nice big and comfortable room on 4th floor, hence hot water just dripping! Not acceptable for 4 Star and the price we paid. Toiletry items missing upon arrival. Booked 5 months ahead for 2 people – only one bath robe and one pair of slippers provided. After calling reception – nothing happened. Poor service. Very good breakfast.
