Novotel Mainz
Ranked #7 of 41 Hotels in Mainz
Reviewed January 10, 2011

The Novotel is a middle-class hotel in a pleasant neighbourhood on the hills of Mainz, close to downtown yet relatively secluded. It is advertised as a 4-star superior hotel, which it doesn't quite live up to. The 4-star rating is well deserved - with a spacious restaurant and a lovely wellness floor - but there is nothing that supports the "superior" addendum.

POSITIVE ASPECTS
The location is superb in terms of neighbourhood qualities. Downtown and the central station is easily reached on foot. Although it's situated next to a busy road, it remains relatively quiet and peaceful. The rooms are very simple - white walls, light wooden furniture and completely white bathroom furniture - but maintains an elegant touch and high level of comfort. The indoor wellness area is a pleasant oasis of relaxation. It has a (rather small) swimming pool, a sauna and offers various massage packages.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS
Reaching the hotel is a complicated task, even with it's central location. Arriving on foot requires a tiring up-hill walk from the central station, and reaching it by car requires several detours on one-way streets. There only parking spaces in the area are those belonging to the hotel, and they are not cheap.

CONCLUSION
A great middle-class alternative to the more expensive Hyatt Regency and Hilton hotels. The hotel is large enough to host tourist groups and business meetings. Couples seeking a romantic getaway will appreciate the in-house spa facilities.

We originally rejected this hotel because on the map it looked too far to walk to the city centre. However,taking a short-cut recommended by reception staff, takes you to the city centre in less than 10 minutes. Also, encouraged by the reception staff, we took the short downhill walk, with all our luggage, to the main railway station. With Mainz being only a short 20 minute train ride to Frankfurt airport, this is a good first or last stop on a visit to Germany.
Our superior room was spacious and clean although we found the bed quite uncomfortable. Wi-fi was good but not free, although paying for a superior room did entitle us to a discounted rate for our one night stay.

Mainz was a transit point for us to reach Frankfurt Flughafen. We chose Novotel as it is a part of the Accor Group. The hotel is well located and very close to the Mainz Rail head.

The room was very spacious with all amenities. The view from the room was also nice.

There is no free WiFi and hence, we had to use their computer for Internet access.

got a smelly smoker room whereas I wanted to have a non smoker room; internet set-up very complicated and relatively slow connection, mediocre service; the whole hotel is quite dated; I was quite disappointed because nearly all novotel hotels where i stayed so far were better. The price is absolutely unjustified

We liked the Hotel, the staff were friendly and helpful. It is on top of the hill above Mainz, but walking into the old town is easy enough (better down than back up the hill, although there is a lift) We had adjoining rooms which was good.

Eating in the Hotel wasn't really an option as it was so expensive and the spa was being refurbished so was unavailable. Other than that would happily stay again.
