Overall, this hotel is perfect for business travelers. The rating is based on our experience as a family of three with a dog. The room, I believe considered a suite(?), with a couch converted into a bed was crowded and hot due to very warm weather during our stay. The bathroom is quite small, though it and the room were clean. The owners were helpful, even loaning us a fan. Our room overlooked the owner's deck, which was pleasant, but a little awkward. Though they didn't use it while we were there, even watering their plants meant they could look directly into our room. There wasn't space for 3 suitcases and no drawers or refrigerator available. The closet was adequate for clothes hanging. The bathroom was clean, but cramped, especially for more than one person.
There's a great bier garten near the back of the hotel, which has much nighly activity. Great for beer drinking, but not good for sleeping with the windows open on a hot August night. The drunk patrons driving or walking by are loud well into the early hours.
The breakfast rooms are charming and the service was good. The breakfast itself was nice with the normal cereals, soft boiled eggs, sliced meats and cheese and fresh brotchen. Other meals are easily taken with a couple minutes walk of the hotel. Restaurants abound just outside the gates of the Schwetzingen Schloss, only a two minute walk from the hotel. You can't beat the location.
I can't forget Emma, the black dog - a setter of some sort, I think. She was most welcoming. At 3 years old, she's sweet and attentive without being overbearing, though she did love our room with the smell of dog food and our dog in the air. We missed it when she wasn't in the lobby.
So our stay was OK. The heat was beyond their control. However, I'd say this is a decent business hotel or a short stay with two people. The location's wonderful for visiting the town and the owners are pleasant. They will park your car off the street on hotel property. My husband will stay here when on business because of the access to lovely Schwetzingen.
