Sheraton Hannover Pelikan Hotel
Ranked #22 of 159 Hotels in Hannover
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 February 2008

Lovely place.

Not directly central, but as my appointment was next door, it was ideal for me.

The hotel is a converted pen / pencil (Pelikan) factory, i.e. in a lovely historic building. I had a very nice room, with extremely high ceilings. Service was also excellent.

The spa next door (guests were allowed to use it for free) was one of the best I've been to. More of a small theme park.

All in all, I was a very happy customer at the Pelikan!

Nice historical building, though you are likely, as I did, to get a room in the new aisles.
Asked for a quiet room, got a ground floor street facing one. As it was one designed for handicaped persons, had a bit of a hospital feel. Mattress average, Westin chain seems to have better mattresses than sheraton within Starwood group. Could not get temperature right and did not sleep well.
Good breakfast, friendly staff.

A good stopover location, easy access from the autobahn, decent restaurant with above average food and friendly service. Club rooms have very comfortable beds. It is a business biased hotel so you get the grey colour scheme and rather clinical feel but if you need everything to hand, the rooms fully loaded and a gym then this hotel is to be recommended. I also have to commend them for their policy of identifying the chargeable items that lie around hotel rooms nowadays which in so many hotels appear to be offered as a gift from the management but of course are not.

Really pleasantly surprised by this place. As mentioned in my other posts have seen some dodgy Sheratons. This is a converted pencil factory so you get some interesting rooms but what really stands out here is the gym - it is actually a commercial gym which hotel guests have access to, and it is just wonderful - best gym I've ever been to, hotel or otherwise. If you're a gym junkie, welcome to heaven.

Pros:
- Bend-over-to-help you staff (unfortunately we had to bend them a lot on this trip)
- Gym
- Modern, good refurb
- Pencil factory eccentricities (the ceiling in room was 21 feet, I swear)

Cons:
- Bland, grey, business vibe
- Tricky to find

We stopped into this hotel on our way to Koblenz. Our room 210 was a lovely spacious room with massive tall windows, the building reminded me of a school building. It was fabulous value for 80E and the rooms were large and modern with all the modern facilities you expect from a Sheraton. The restaurant was great with a good selection on food and wine menu. The piano bar was terrific, it was great listening to good jazz music whilst sipping a glass of fine wine.

PROS: Terrific value...good spacious modern rooms. Excellent restaurant and piano bar. Overall excellent value for money and well worth a stay.

CONS: Not in a wonderful position.

Recommendation: Yes.

Hannover is not exactly a tourist destination. The reason I visited there is that to see a long time friend. Staying at the Sharaton, and I can't believe the room didn't even have an AC. But overall the hotel is clean and the service is nice and about a 10 minutes tram ride to the city center. But expect to be charged for everything including parking, breakfast, newspaper, local calls...the kind of things we get used to having for free in the U.S. Overall the city is nice, but with limited tourist attractions. In turn, you don't get a big crowd everywhere you go, and have a good view into the everyday lives of the German people. I recommend to visit the castle of the former King of Hannover, just about 1 hour drive south of the city. A beautiful view of the countryside. Happy traveling.

Good hotel, small rooms some only with shower. The service is very friendly. The restaurant offers great food and the breakfast buffet is the best I ever had so far. Only the location is not fantastic
