“Tucked in the middle of Town and adequate plus”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Arrival a bit strange ( no one at the door , take the elevator up) but once there cozy and nice. Front office folks were friendly, helpful and English speaking.
Room was adequate with a bathroom which was clean and efficient. I am not a great fan of soap dispensers but there they were.
Little gummy bears ( or something like it) on the bed, compliments of the management, as well as coffee or tea in the lobby. The TV was modern and easy to use. Internet available and free. Not the greatest, but it worked. There was a sign something about being "punished" if you had large downloads. That took up about 10 minutes of humorous musings about " what would happen if? LOL)" .
I arrived around four PM and was greeted with some loud drilling which stopped at about 4:30 just as I was about to complain. You may want to check with them about their renovations before securing booking.
Breakfast was more than adequate including local delicacies, eggs sunny side up with a very tasty vegetable melange under it, very nice local rolls, local "cooked cheese".....all in all a pleasant experience.

Enjoy....

I recently stayed at the Hotel Darmstadt for 4 nights and I loved everything about my stay there.
I had a wonderfully quiet room, the front desk staff were extremely accommodating and the breakfast buffet was amazing! The staff even brought me paper bags so I could make a sandwich for a brown bag lunch! The buffet food selection and quality were outstanding.

The proximity to the city centre made this hotel the perfect location for exploring on foot.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay in downtown Darmstadt.

We just had our 5th or 6th visit to the hotel. We always feel so welcomed by all the staff. the hotel is reliably clean throughout. The breakfast is a treasure and no one would be disappointed by it. The onsite parking is very convenient. When we're in this part of Germany...we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. We look forward to our next visit tot he hotel and the wonderful staff.

I've been staying at this hotel 5-6 times per year since 2003. I think it's great. Quiet (which I didn't expect initally due to the proximity of the parking garage.)

Great service in general although at times housekeeping can get a bit out of control. (They change towels when not necessary and don't always adhere to the requests on the "feel comfortable" card.

After a little driving around, I managed to find the place. It's attached to a multi-storey car park, so park your car and walk to reception, which is on the 5th floor.

Check in was quick and friendly. My room was clean, cool and comfortable. Darmstadt centre is only a five minute walk away, with all the bars and restaurants you might need. The hotel served a nice German breakfast, which was included in my room rate.

Upon checkout, I bought a parking card, so a whole days parking only cost 8 euro. A tip is to avoid using Google Maps to find the hotel - the location is off by a couple of streets. Use the address listed on the hotel website instead.

Room Tip: The hotel is currently being refurbished on the 5th floor

Picked this hotel because of the feedback on Booking and TripAdvisor and because of the interesting location.

Arriving, the parking is right next to the hotel (not to expensive) and the reception at the front desk was standard but professional. German style ?;o) (7/10)

The are renovating the hotel but I must say that there is little to non disturbance for the guests.
The are doing a good job in keeping it quit ! (10/10)

Room was nice, bed was good and despite some very little things they were clean. (7.5/10)
I do like the fact that there is a free bottle of water waiting for you in your room, a little but very welcome attention ! (10/10)

There are brand new TV's with a very good image quality and many channels.
But... 99% in German ! make sure that if you want an ENG channel, you also check out the channels beyond 60 . (6/10 for non German visitors -- 9.5/10 for German visitors)

Breakfast was included.
It's a buffet style breakfast with fresh ingredients.
Although it looks small, it's not. You will really enjoy it and you have plenty of choice. (8.5/10)

Location : (9/10)
It's very good located with a very good coffee shop around the corner ! (Corner coffee and Bar)
There are also many little restaurants in the hotels's street and at no more than 5 min walking, you have more restaurants, shopping, bars, ...



Other things are :

- Price is right ! (8/10)
- Mini bar prices are reasonable (8/10)
- There is free coffee in the lobby (8/10)
- Spacious room (8/10)
- Not the best view in the city, (6/10)
- Internet is SLOW !! (2/10)

Reviewed 11 June 2013

My only complaint is that the hotel's online information is easily misinterpreted regarding accessibility and parking -- garage parking with direct access to the hotel and an elevator. As a woman travelling alone with a knee injury, arriving via car, those qualities were key to my choice. However, I was quite surprised by the actual physical configuration of the hotel. Following the signs to the hotel parking on the top floor of the garage, I was dismayed to drag my luggage through 2 flights of stairs (one large story) to reach the lobby. Additionally, my room was located a half-story down from the lobby, requiring additional stairs each time I left my room during my 5-night stay. I EXPECT stairs in Europe, but I don't expect stairs when the hotel advertises an elevator and direct access from the parking garage.

There IS an elevator connecting the BW lobby, which is located on the 3rd story, with a well-lit street-level entry. Seeing that the (central city) garage emptied in the evening, I inquired and learned it was possible to park anywhere in the garage, but only the marked BW parking area is monitored via camera 24-7. Happy to make that trade-off, I subsequently parked on the ground floor, took the elevator to the lobby, leaving only a few stairs to my room. The hotel should make these options clear prior to arrival.

My GPS tried to direct me to an adjacent street, so if you have difficulty, seek the Eiscafe San Remo, a simple but tasty Italian restaurant which is right across the street from the hotel. Don't miss their delicious Italian ice cream. I was very happy with the room size and amenities for the category of hotel. There was a great deal of natural light from large windows in the hallways and my room, features of the modern construction. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful and didn't blink at providing me free Intenet access codes for all 3 of my devices (worked great 4 out of 5 days). Complimentary self-serve hot beverages are available continuously in the lobby. Breakfast buffet was good as well.

Room Tip: If accessibility is an issue, ask for a room on the lobby level to avoid stairs.
