“Good location but nothing special”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

The hotel is an easy walk to central station and bus connections. Also within 15 min walk of the old town and many restaurants, however the hotel is pretty basic, mostly aimed at the business and conference market. We used the hotels airport limousine transfer which was pretty reasonable at 45eu each way, but the train would be much cheaper option. We had one meal there which was quite expensive compared to local restaurants. The breakfast at 24eu per head seemed a bit pricey for the standard of the hotel.

The hotels resembles what may have been a hospital turned hotel, very steril no hype. The rooms are very clean but tiny like a closet with furniture and the facilities are very clean but it's just a white blah. The staff is very stiff not rude just to the point and that's it no smiles. The area is very buisy and the hotel is buried in business and residential structures. Overall it a ok place if you are alone doing business in the area but hard to get to in car or even on foot forget locating it as is does not standout it's just blah with lots of glass.

The Dorint has a good location, with the city center just a ten-minute walk away. It's also within easy walking distance of the train station. There is free parking out the back, so no need to put the car in the garage.

It's clean, well-managed, and the rooms are comfortable - though not particularly big. The furniture looks very late 90's, with grey, white, and light wood tones dominating.

The hotel is also utterly void of any charm. But it is efficient and comfortable. Don't get confused by the name, it's simply a business hotel. Also, don't get confused by their apparent 5-star rating. It's more like a 3 to 4 star property.

Lack of free internet is a nuisance.

Room Tip: Get a room out the front - facing the garden. In case they give you a room out the back, then ask fo...

The Dorint Pallas is a great business hotel - good service, clean and well equipped rooms and facilities. There is a good choice at breakfast and the restaurant is reasonably priced. However, the key feature for me is the proximity to the really nice city of Wiesbaden. The hotel is ten minutes from the downtown area, with its stunning Gothic church, lively squares, parks, casino, theatres and squares full of bars and restaurants. it is also only 300 yards from the train station - if arriving in Frankfurt airport, don't spend unnecesarily on a taxi - the train is quick, easy and cheap!

Nice hotel in a great location 10min walk from the Wiesbaden centre. We also found a free parking right in the back of the hotel for the whole weekend. Room was nice, spacious and had a great, extremely clean bathroom (a little smallish, though). Bed was good and comfortable. Air con was good.

The breakfast was good but a little over priced (24€ per person). Didn't really feel that we were getting what we were paying for... there was plenty of everything but not enough sweets. Coffee was good. Still, didn't feel like the breakfast room service was really up to the standard since the staff was very busy all the time and we had to wait for coffee, milk for the coffee etc. for a relatively long time.

The hotel bar was good. Good drinks.

Spa area was nice. It had the shower area, three sauna's, one jacuzzi, sitting area and relaxation area. There was just one other couple besides us so it was very pleasant, quiet and relaxing. However there was no staff in the spa during the time we spent there.

Most of the staff were just great but as we were checking out we were talking to someone who was quite unpleasant, didn't really want to bother herself with explaining the contents of the bill or ask if we enjoyed our stay..... the usual things good staff normally do. Somehow we both felt quite unpleasant after checking out, can't even explain the feeling but it was unpleasant enough not to return again.

I really enjoyed the staff at this hotel. They were courteous, witty and prompt; however, I did have the overall feeling they are understaffed. I used the gym facilities which are sparse and the air conditioner was not working properly. There was no staff member in the area and when I asked someone on the main floor about turning up the AC, it never happened. I emailed the concierge about getting a spa package prior to my arrival with no response back. If you're there for business and you're self-reliant, you should be very pleased with the arrangements. It's just a short walking distance from the old downtown Wiesbaden with lots of shopping and places to eat. The hotel staff is very helpful in providing directions. The food is outstanding and the customer service in the conference areas was exceptional as well.
