I travel a lot and am used to the fact that some chain hotels in Germany are often a notch lower than international standards. We were looking for a hotel close to the University in Wiesbaden, where we had a meeting the next day. I checked Trip advisor and decided to try out the Achat, since the reviews here seemed good.
I wish I hadn't!! Friendliness was a word that the receptionist obviously did not know. I was traveling with two colleagues that did not speak German and they were treated pretty much with disdain. I speak fluent German which did not get me a better treatment.
The hotel lift was very smelly, not sure whether someone had thrown up in there before or the sewage of the hotel was leaking. 2 of us were on the second floor and the sewage smell was there throughout the corridor. The rooms were small and mine smelt of stale sweat-obviously the cleaning personnel has a hygiene issue. Luckily I could throw open the windows and by the time we got back from dinner, it was better.
When we got back, we decided to have a drink at the bar. This was manned by the unfriendly receptionist who made it very obvious that she did not like being pulled away from her desk at 9 in the evening because we wanted a drink at the bar.
Breakfast was OK, nothing great but the normal "standard" that one gets in most german hotels . No brown bread at all, all white.
The only positive is that it is centrally located and it appears that the corridor on the 4th floor was not smelly, since our third colleague stayed on this floor. And the internet connection is pretty fast.
