““Excellent Hotel””
Reviewed 7 May 2012

As a frequent traveler for business I stay at many hotels throughout the world and my two-week stay at the Foehrenhof was an excellent experience. Great staff, clean and comfortable with a very good restaurant. Free Internet is a plus and very good location.

Reviewed 26 April 2012

I am a frequent traveler working on a project with a team in Hannover for many months. I was hoping to experience the Best Western Hotel Der Foehrenhof and perhaps relocate our team there. However, I have been charge $1850 due to a system error between Best Western and my travel agent (one of the largest supporting business travellors globally).

The issue was that my agent booked a one month stay for me with a rate that did not include penalty for cancellation. When my plan changed, the reservation was changed to a 1 week stay and the rate continued to appear to my travel agent as not having a cancellation penalty (and they have a screen shot showing such).

Weeks before the reservation date my credit card was charged $1850 and shortly thereafter, but still weeks prior to the reservation date, the reservation was cancelled. My travel agent is told that when the reservation was changed from 1 month to 1 week that the rate then became a prepaid rate and had a cancellation penalty of 100% of the reservation!

This seems like an obvious issue between the hotel and travel agent systems for which the traveler should not experience any penalty. However, I am sitting here with an $1850 bill without a response from Best Western Corporate office as to when this will be resolved. In the meantime, I am extremely disappointed with the handling of this issue and am not encouraged to stay at a Best Western anywhere globally

The hotel is located on the north-eastern edge of the city very close to the main A2 east-west autobahn, and about 20 minutes from the airport. I was working nearby, the reason I stayed there, but it is obviously not so convenient for the city centre although it is immediately adjacent to a tram stop with a frequent service to the centre. I had a single room which was a bit on the small side, but it was well fitted out as was the hotel generally. There is a nice restaurant with an excellent buffet breakfast. You can get lunch and dinner there too (useful as there aren't many nearby restaurants) but I didn't try these. Altogether a nice hotel that is pretty good value for money.

I recently stayed at Der Föhrenhof in Hannover during the EMO trade show. It’s located about 40 minutes away from the fair grounds and 20 miles from town center.

I was a little apprehensive straying in a 3 star Hotel, especially when 3 stars In Europe can easily mean 2 or less in the US. But at first the rating seemed fair enough. The rooms were very clean, although a bit cramped and no closet space, but some hangers and a small cabinet. Unfortunately, everything after that went down hill.

First I learned Body soap and Shampoo comes from the same squeeze bottle mounted on the wall. The Internet Access advertised on the web costs8 Euro an hour or 68 Euro a week. Then the manager walked in on my wife and I, not once, but twice while we were taking a nap. Why didn’t you bolt the door you say? Well, there are no real bolts on the doors, nor a chain, or even a wedge. Apparently, I didn’t raise my door handle properly to bolt it. But the manager walking in on me has never been an issue before.

To complete our stay, while checking out, the lady at the front desk asked if we ate breakfast at the hotel, to which I replied, sure! It was free! The restaurant staff told me each morning they took our room number, and it’s also advertised on their web site. She then informed me that since I booked my room through the Internet, our continental breakfast was 24 Euro a day.

That was quite the kicker having to pay $30 US Dollars a day for mere continental breakfast for my wife and I. Later I found out I wasn’t the only one. Apparently, they forgot to tell other guests of the charge.

If you are still wondering how I liked this hotel, let me make it perfectly clear. I wouldn’t stay at the Best Western Hotel Der Föhrenhof in Hannover if it was free, and included the breakfast! What a blatant rip-off!

So if for some wild reason you still want to stay at this hotel; get everything down in writing, bring your own soap and shampoo, and a nice wedge to bolt your door shut.
