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.
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.
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.
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.
