“Competitive and convenient choice in Darmstadt”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

This is very conveniently located next to the train station, so you can drop your bags and take the taxis. trams or buses which all converge there. Rooms facing the parking lot are very quiet and I did not hear any trains at all. The hotel seems very new. The room was larger than the Welcome Hotel, but the furnishings are about the same. The breakfast buffet had a reasonable selection of hot and cold dishes, but the Welcome Hotel has a better spread. While you are a bit away from the center of town, there is a really nice wine bar across the street.

A few quirks. The room did not have a coffee maker. Wifi, while free, was as slow as old school dial-up. The staff seemed a bit confused about things; they did not know what a wake-up call is.

We moved to this hotel after the Welcome hotel could not extend our stay. I'm glad we did. It is a terrific and reasonably priced hotel. There is an entire mall in the Darmstadt train station with tons of shops and fast food. Our room overlooked the train tracks, but there was no noise. I would stay there again.

I travel to Darmstadt fairly regularly for business and usually stay at the Welcome. This time around the InterCity was available and it was recommended by other colleagues.

It proved to be a perfectly fine business hotel. The rooms are typically compact but efficient. The hotel breakfast was very good.

My colleague and I took a cab from FRA to the hotel but we took the Air Bus back to the airport and that worked out very well. The close proximity to the train and bus station are a clear advantage for this hotel.

The only downside is the location does not have as many restaurants or bistros to choose from within a reasonable walking distance as some of the hotels near the Darmstadium, for example.

If in Darmstadt for business, this is a perfect choice for its location. It's next to the train station and the AirBus stop from Frankfurt airport, and is at walking distance - less than 5 minutes - to ESOC/ESA.

Brand new hotel, nice room, well furnished, good sized, spotless clean (the cleanliness was quite amazing, everything looked as straight out of a store) and a very comfortable bed. Maybe a tad too essential for the price: another pillow on the bed and some amenities and another towel in the bathroom would have been welcome and more in line with its price. Breakfast was good but overpriced at 15 euros, and I didn't use the wifi but I understand is not free, which is a pity for a business hotel.

It's supposed to have a restaurant, but it was closed and I had the impression that it's going to stay close. However, there are some restaurants nearby (and a movie theater) so it wasn't really a problem.

All in all, an accettable experience, will probably go there again if in Darmstadt.

The hotel is modern and right next to the railway station. My room was a nice sized double with a beige and cream minimalist decor. It had a good sized wardrobe and cabinet and wide work top. A TV was mounted above. WiFi was available at 17c/minute charge or daily rates. The bathroom was small but had all that was required in a well-designed package. My room looked out on to the station platforms and railway tracks but I heard nothing at all during the night.
Dinner was buffet style and it was of excellent quality with choices available for each of the three courses.
Breakfast buffet was streamlined (in the sense that things were laid out in logical order) with the standard range of cooked and cold items. There was an excellent selection of muesli varieties and half a dozen really delectable jam offerings.
The whole hotel oozed business cool and efficiency - save for that WiFi charge. Don't expect hugs and smiles.

Room Tip: rooms numbered x01 to x20 look out on the train station; rooms numbered x21 and up look out on the b...

first time to Darmstadt for business trip, ideally located next to the train station (no noise from train nor from neighbours) this new hotel has everything you need for a reasonable price
it is a clean room with a safe, enough hangers in the warbrobe, a place for your luggage, small tv, airco, desk, armchair, hair dryer, enlarging mirror, very nice breakfast choice, nice very expresso, peach-maracuja jam, crispy bacon and friendly staff !

good to know : no amenities in the bathroom (shower), don't forget your shampoo if you have sensitive skin/hairs (it is a shampoo/shower/handwash gel), WIFI is not free and the bar is closing quite early (10PM I think)

In the frankly unexciting hotel scene Darmstadt offers, this is better than most: clean modern rooms, good breakfast choice and a generally efficient staff. It does lack some of the facilities you tend to find in newer hotels like a fitness centre and the WiFi fee is annoying when travelling for business, but that is a more general issue in Germany not necessarily with the hotel. If you are a light sleeper ask for a room on the front side as the back of the hotel is immediately facing the train tracks coming into town and can be noisy in the morning.
