ACHAT Comfort Darmstadt/Griesheim

Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights here. Was Euros 61.00 for a dble room excluding breakfast. Clean, comfortable rooms and helpful staff. Reception staff all spoke English. We did not eat in the restaurant but were told by a reliable source that the pizzas made there were excellent. We would stay here again without hesitation.

There is nothing particularly wrong with this hotel, it presents itself as a budget 3* which could be compared to a UK Travelodge - as mentioned elsewhere,'no frills' accommodation.

The multi lingual receptionist was very helpful, albeit somewhat unsmiling, on a number of occasions. The rooms were large enough (mine equipped with a fridge and small cooker hob) and a decent sized television. The bed was comfortable and had those curious 'square' pillow cases but with 'normal' pillows within!

Parking is at a premium so it's worth spending €8 per night for a space in the underground car park. There is also a very good Italian restaurant, the Trattoria da Attilio, integral with the hotel - see separate Trip Advisor reviews at -

On the downside, there was no extractor fan in the bathroom (I'll say no more!), neither is there any air conditioning. This posed no problem for us as we visited during a wet and cold week so there was no need to open the double glazed windows; had this been necessary, as it would be in warmer/hotter conditions, I can well imagine that sleep would be difficult to come by as a road runs close by the hotel. There is a useful tram service into town on that road which could be mistaken, on a map, for a railway line.

In all, we had a pleasant stay and with the proviso mentioned above, I wouldn't expect anybody to be overly dissatisfied in value for money..

Simple and a bit "sad" if I can say...
The hotel is located on a big road. I was lucky to get a room on the 5th floor, so the morning traffic wasn't that bad.
Internet is free in the common area and this is also good.
The italian restaurant of the hotel is nice. I had a real italian pizza!
Employees are nice. One last remark: too far away from Frankfurt, Mainz, Wiesbaden

Room Tip: Ask for a room on high floor

I was put in this hotel paid for by my company I advised them today to never book me here again. This place only has two thing going for its self is the staff at the front desk and Franco next door at the resturant. The tv is a 14" looks like it was from the stone age. There only was one iron for the entire hotel you got to be kidin there. The Breakfast was the worst i ever seen in my life. The only eatablr thing was the peaches she took from the can. Also if your room is close to the hwy guaranteed you will not sleep for the Tram and the cars at the light with the Diesel engines going off. It snowed everyday for the first week I think the turned the heat down to conserve energy it barly even came out Never again. Please its not worth the money at all. If i had to pay for this myself i would have only stayed one night and left.

While having a top-level staff, this hotel is not convincing as it might be. The rooms have new furnitures and the baths are quite new, but the moquette and the corridors seem not to be ventilated sufficiently. Breakfast nominal, not special. Good for a short stay. Outside the hotel is located the tram stop 'Flughafenstrasse Griesheim'. You will be in Darmstadt or Griesheim downtown in a few minutes.

The Achat Hotel in Griesheim is a clean, affordable, but no-frills hotel. The rooms, while tidy and clean, are not really inviting. For my most recent stay, I used their standard room, which was pretty good-sized by European standards. However, the bed was rather hard. The in-room TV was tiny- the screen was about the size of your average laptop computer screen, and there were less than 20 channels, all in German. There were no international English news stations, movie stations, pay per view, etc. In-room Internet connections are not free; however, you can use WIFI in the lobby for free. The front desk will give you a password that is good for several days. I was able to use the free lobby WIFI in my room as well. I'm not sure what the paid, in-room Internet service is like, but the free WIFI was frustratingly slow, regardless of where in the hotel you used it. It literally was not much better than dial-up. Breakfast is not included in the price of the room, but you can add it for about 7 euro. I had the breakfast during a previous stay at this Achat and was unimpressed and thus opted to get breakfast elsewhere this time. The Italian restaurant on the main level is pretty good and isn't too expensive. The staff are friendly and accommodating.

Parking is an issue. There are very few free spaces. You can pay extra to park in the underground garage or park in a store parking lot several blocks away, which I opted to do.

As others have said, the location is convenient for people commuting to Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, or Heidelberg. It is located right off of the A-5 and A-67. I picked the Achat for its convenient location and affordable price and would consider staying there again.

We stayed here twice in the last two weeks. This hotel is a great value and the Italian Restaurant is one of the best you will find and very, very reasonably priced. The food is superior and the staff very attentive. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and helped us in any way they could. The room prices are are really great and, while not the Hilton or Sheraton, the rooms are clean and functional and the bathroom remarkably modern and clean. The only negative is the lack of air conditioning. We stayed two nights about a week apart. The first night we slept with the windows open and it was a little noisy. The second night it was very cool and we could sleep with the windows closed and the room was very quiet. They do have a complete breakfast at the price of 7 euros and it might one of the best values you'll find in any hotel in Germany.
It took us about 20 minutes to get to the car rental return at Frankfurt Airport. I definitely recommend this hotel if you are on a budget or, like us, refuse to pay outrageous airport hotel prices..3 to 4 times that of this hotel
