“Centrally located and an impressive breakfast buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2010

Overall I had quite a positive experience with this hotel.

I booked a single room through an hotel booking engine and got a competitive weekend fare of 55EUR including breakfast. A few minutes earlier however, I was a bit surprised that the hotel's own website showed no room availability!
Hotel is centrally located near the pedestrian and shopping zone. There is a bus stop nearby - from/to the railway station you can take lines 3, 6 and 33. Alternatively you may walk, which takes around 20-25 mins. Check-in was fast, staff very friendly.

The room itself offered good value for money. Comfortable bed with firm mattress and pillows; one small desk; one small TV displaying around 20 channels (however only two English-speaking channels); bathroom small but spotlessly clean. On the downside there is no airconditioning in the room; lighting is limited with only two lamps in the room; in the bathroom, once the light is on, there is a permanent ventilator noise which is annoying.

Breakfast is the most pleasant surprise in this hotel. I had expected a standard breakfast buffet, so was quite impressed by the quality of the products. Freshly-squeezed orange juice, homemade scrambled eggs and an impressive selection of "Wurst" sausages, different types of cheese, muesli, fresh fruit, yoghurts. Staff was welcoming and very friendly. On the downside I found the breakfast room to be a bit "canteen-like" with a single row of at least 20 tables!

We booked a triple room to share with our teenage daughter. Price seemed very reasonable. The room was quite spacious with high ceilings. Heard hardly any noise from other guests. Beds were comfy. Bathroom was a reasonable size. All "very" clean. No air conditioning, but the fan was fine. Central location, a short walk from shopping mall and train station. Just half an hour from Frankfurt airport by train. No carparking provided, but found space on the street. Very pleasant and helpful staff - most of the staff spoke English. Buffet breakfast was very nice and the breakfast room was pleasant.

  • Liked — The buffet breakfast and the spacious room
  • Disliked — No tea/coffee making facility in room (but could purchase them downstairs in breakfast room)

This was my third Wiesbaden hotel - I travel there fairly frequently - and now I think I'll stop looking at others.

This has to be the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in, in my life. A proper double bed with no twin-mattresses pushed together and the resultant uncomfortable divide down the middle. A well sprung but very deeply cosy bed and Oh Heaven, proper pillows too! I HATE German hotel pillows which are so soft and squashy, but this hotel has proper English beds and proper English firm pillows.

I slept like a log, for once.

Other than that, the room is decent-sized but there is only one chair. A fan runs continually in the tiny bathroom which cannot be switched off, when the light is on. (Some other hotel bathrooms have a separate light over the hand-basin which allows one to switch off the overhead light/fan.) There is a step up into the bathroom, which I stubbed my toe on once, but these are minor issues.

Breakfast was just as good they promote on their website and indeed, even better. There were no other breakfast customers when I finally appeared next morning and the cheerful lady couldn't do enough for me. Orange juice was freshly-pressed; tea freshly made and when I said I didn't like it, it was swiftly taken away and replaced with a carafe of good coffee. She made me some scrambled eggs with chopped ham in, on a hot-plate on the buffet. The other breakfast things were above-average standard - and note - this is included in the room rate.

The Alexander is slightly farther out from the pedestrianised zone than I'd anticipated but on the other hand, it was easy to park.

I would definitely recommend this place and will stay there again.

  • Liked — Wonderfully comfortable bed
  • Disliked — Nothing, really.

Booked this hotel directly with the hotel via email given on their website as a stop over on way home from camping in the Black Forest and we were not disappointed. It could be a little hard to find as the directions said to follow the tourist signs with the blue hotel spots - but I never saw one! Thank goodness for the GPS!

The Hotel has a very small, unimpressive, frontage as it occupies a narrow slice of the end of a block. However it feels much larger on the inside due to clever design, good lighting and clean contemporary furnishings in the entrance and cafe/breakfast room.

Staff were very friendly and helpful on check in and could speak really good English once I'd exhausted my very limited German. My booking requests for 2 rooms next to each other, one a twin the other a double, were taken care of with no problems.

On street free parking was available as it was the weekend, but you have to park in a nearby multi storey in the week for around 15 euros.

The rooms were both comfortable, with enough space for large bags and a reasonable size for a city centre hotel. Nicely decorated, furnished with old English furniture and a brass bedstead. Bed was very comfortable. No airconditioning but you could open the windows and there was a large fairly quiet,electric fan. No mini bar but a cold drinks machine with coke, water, fanta and beer in the lobby for 2 euros.

Bathroom was a bit of a disappointment as I was looking forward to a bath after a week camping, but it only had a shower. However, it was easy to operate and had great water pressure.

Room had TV which had CNN as well as German & French .
It should have had BBC as well, but this wasn't working - didn't bother trying to get this sorted as we didn't stay long enough for it to be a problem. There was also a sign which said there was free wireless internet but we didn't need it.

Lovely freshly prepared buffet breakfast included in the price (the breakfast room is a cafe for non-residents as well which explained why there was a priced menu up). Included teas, coffees, freshly squeezed orange juice, hams, cheeses, cut meats, fruit, mueseli, bread etc. , enough to suit any taste or diet, which set us up for the next leg of our journey.

Hotel is convieniently placed just across the road (5 mins walk)from the edge of the main shopping area, bars, restaurants, and the old town and approx 15 minutes walk from the Kurhaus and Parks.

The only down side was that the lift doesn't go to the top floor, so we had to haul our luggage up a flight of stairs to get to the rooms. So if you expect to have heavy bags or have mobility problems remember to ask for a room the lift will take you to!

Overall good value for money, and a pleasant stay.

  • Liked — It was clean and comforable
  • Disliked — Having to haul the bags up the final flight of stairs

Our 10 days in Wiesbaden would not been as terrific if it was not for this wonderful German Hotel with owner Sabika and her female staff. It's scrumptious buffet breakfast with fresh squeesed orange juice, eggs, cappuccino, cereal, brotchen, etc. starts one off to a great day. Their cleaning staff kept our room immaculate and we loved being able to watch BBC and CNN on the television. Their desk staff answered our many questions always with a smile. We can not wait to go back.
