We stayed here for one night on our way further north into Germany. It was a little outside of Stuttgart itself, which suited us as we were arriving later at night and didn't want to have to drive through city traffic when we arrived.
Whilst the signage is generally good for the hotel from a distance, we found it difficult to actually work out where the entrance to the car park was, when we worked it out, it was boom gated off! After a long drive, we were tired and not ready to find out how much parking was. We parked on the street and walked inside - you can park inside the boom gates for 10 mins without a fee. We decided to pay and park in the undercover carpark which is 1EUR/hour with a maximum 24 hour charge of 12EUR. Considering this hotel is not particularly central we thought 12EUR was a little on the steep side.
We only discovered after paying for parking that if you approach the front desk you receive a 5EUR discount, something the man checking us in, who was not particularly helpful at all to be honest, did not advise us of.
The hotel was acceptable, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. We did not have breakfast here, there is a 'Real' grocery store down the road which we felt was a much better solution than the breakfast at the hotel, from memory it was 15EUR.
Whilst the hotel offers 'free' wi-fi the instructions in the room indicated that there was indeed a fee, perhaps if I had have called the front desk I would have found out, but personally I don't want to be calling about things of this nature, I just want them to work and to not have to pay for them! We survived without internet for one night! ;)
For us, this hotel was an easy stop over point. If we were coming back to Stuttgart we would stay much closer to the centre itself. This hotel however is a good option for a quick overnight stay on the way to somewhere else.
