Ok need to go through this one.
If you are traveling through Kassel "Wilhelmshöhe" station (main through station for this City) and you want a business style hotel near station this place has location - 40M from station entrance.This is the big selling place and for me explains the price (85-100Euro). The hotel is efficient and rooms small but spotlessly clean. Also another plus it the 24hour city travel card you get on arrival .
Issues : I sleep well so I booked after reading about tram noise and I did sleep but it is an issue you really can here them and they squeal round the corner just outside hotel till early in the morning and they start up is again early !. The hotel really does need to invest in further soundproofing .Take earplugs and don"t stay here if a light sleeper.
The room had a very small corner shower which was not great , a small portable tv and it did feel budget . Wi-fi approx 4euro for an hour for me at this price should be free but again is this fleecing the business market? Even the minibar was more than usual , so on cost (I paid 87E) I think it is a budget hotel trading on location and with noise and price it is at best average overall hence the 3 stars .
To sum up the tram noise is the biggest issue but if you can sleep through this and get a good price and want to be close to the main station it is an option. Personally I will pick another hotel next time .
