Stayed for one night for business. Location: middle of nowhere. Wifi signal was too poor in my room. Bathroom ok, bed very soft. Restaurant served decent food but far from great. Friendly staff. Breakfast was very simple and sub-par. Decor is - at the best - weird/kitsch. Will find a different place next time.

Darmstadt is not the best city for hotels, this is the third visit to the town and we have had generally a sub-par experience in this city. The place was a relief after too high price or just rather poor hotels. It is a bit odd, it looked to us like it could be a hotel from some sort of...

I think it is important to evaluate hotels also in the context of the cities they are in. Hotels in Darmstadt? Not pretty. Still, the Contel hotel need special mentioning: Sleep quality: Bad. Mattresses too soft, light insulation not really there Air Condition: Non-existent. Summer visits will be painful and sweaty. will not help sleep either Fridge: Non existent. Hygiene:...

I was in Darmstadt as an exchange student and this was one of the few places around that offered a short stay option. My room was small but equipped with a basic kitchenette when I moved in. It was fairly clean and comfortable. However, the terrible service and rudeness of the staff soon turned out to be a nightmare for...

While visiting TU Darmstadt for research with several colleagues, we were put-up in the Hotel Contel, an unfortunate welcome to Darmstadt. Before arriving, the hotel management decided to place "House Rules" on us during our stay - based on some rowdy Australians (we're American) who stayed previously...apparently they went swimming in the hotel fountain/fish pond, ha! The rules forbid us...

If you are yearning for the American motel experience, the Contel is your place. I am only giving this hotel a two stars because the front desk staff was helpful and the room was clean, other than that this place was a nightmare. Upon entering the Contel you are greeted by a mote of green water and the light smell...

I stayed at this hotel on my last business trip. The hotel is minimal but the with price they charge (90€/night with BF) I think the services are lacking. First in the bathroom they just give one sachet of soap/shampoo and no creams or anything. The TV has only 10 channels to choose from and the wifi is slow or...

I would not take my family here or stay here in the summer. The place meets all the needs for the business travel clean and a great breakfast selection. The room was very hot even with the heat turned off there is no A/C so summer would be a big challenge.

Poor rooms, simple and old furnitures, breakfasts is not included in the relative high costs, at least there is wifi included, which is quite slow. It's at least clean and with a free parking. Next to hotel there are some smaller shops and 2-3 fast foods.

Although the decor is rather mixed, this hotel provides an oasis after a busy day. Good beers, reasonsble food, friendly service and a rather good breakfast (with proper espresso), all combined with the spacious and quiet rooms make an ideal retreat. Stay here once every year.
