“Can't Recommend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012

Yes, this hotel is convenient, located across the street from the train station, so it was easy to get to the airport. I would rather have stayed somewhere else and taken a taxi. The staff was not very friendly and the elevator was weird, stopping at half floors so you have to haul your luggage up and down a half flight of stairs. There is one grim wall decoration on the stairs of an aerial photo of the city after it was bombed by the Allies. Please.
This is the Middle Eastern part of the city so there are plenty of small restaurants selling kabobs, etc. and there is an internet cafe 1 block away but it was dirty and creepy so we didn't feel like entering in personal information for checking in for our flight home. There is a decent coffee house across the street which was nice, and the train station had a nice variety of good, clean restaurants.
We requested and were told we had a non-smoking room. It smelled badly of smoke, as did the hallway. It was on the 2nd floor near the elevator. The room was clean and the carpet was new but the drapes and walls smelled awful. We complained but they just said it was a non-smoking room and they didn't offer to switch. If we had known how bad it was going to be we would have demanded a room change. The bathroom shower was gross. The pillows were very flimsy and uncomfortable.
The breakfast room was shabby in places and badly in need of an upgrade. Breakfast itself was decent.
The area around the hotel was filled with litter and we saw broken glass. We had to turn on the fan in the middle of the night because of noise from the area below.
I would not recommend this hotel and Mainz itself was a disappointment except for the Mainz Cathedral where we went to Mass. We were disappointed that the other church, St. Stephan's was closed. We wanted to see the Chagall windows. The medieval town of Limburg is much more charming.
I am disappointed that this hotel had a 2012 Trip Advisor Sticker at the entrance. I would recommend that it be removed.

From the front of the railway station you will seen the Konigshof but do not worry: I never heard any trains during my stay. Reception staff were very polite and helpful. My bedroom was well furnished and had a television with at least two English channels: the internet connection was very reliable. Breakfast was excellent. My room overlooked the square in front of the railway
Reception and you could hear passing pedestrians but my sleep was not disturbed. Reception recommended a nearby cycle hire shop where I rented a well equipped machine for a day's cycle ride in the countryside. I liked the hotel and would stay there again

We are a young couple with a baby

Staff was rude and un-helpful.
The room was nice and big- very high ceiling! I love it!

FYI- elevator stops every other floor (there are "half-floors") and so if you are traveling with a baby or something of that sort- you'll have a very hard time getting around the hotel.

The hotel is situated across the street from the main train station and you can only imagine the noise and the type of characters walking around there.

I wouldn't come back... but then again it was one of the cheapest rooms we found near the center.

Room Tip: try to take a room that does not face the main road. maybe it can help bring the noise level down...

Three of us shared a corner triple room facing the street for 3 nights in 3rd week of September. Chose the hotel for its close proximity to the railway station which was right across the road. Staff were very friendly and courteous. The main problem was with the aircon which turned off during the night. Contacted reception and we advised that the temperature outside was too cold for the aircon to run and too cool the room down we had to open the windows. This then allowed the loud street noise from the people and cars to flow into the room making it quite difficult to sleep.

Happened again on the 2nd night and reception gave the same story again however I insisted that the room was quite uncomfortable to sleep in. The aircon was eventually turned back on which made me think that it was being controlled by reception during the night on a timer.

The bed pillows were extremely soft as well. We had to use 2 & 3 pillows to obtain a degree of firmness. Otherwise the room & bathroom were very clean and comfortable and the free wireless internet excellent.

Room Tip: Probably request a room that does not front the street.

Four of us stayed in two rooms at the this hotel for one night in September. We chose it mainly because of its close location to the station. We landed at Franfurt airport at 7.20 pm & were heading for St Goar the next morning, so needed a hotel close to the trains. The Koenigshof certainly fitted the bill. - a two minute walk from the station, lovely clean, quiet rooms & good breakfast. Hotel also had a lift. All emails prior to our holiday were answered promptly & staff were very helpful while we were there. Lots of places nearby to eat, as well,

This hotel is incredible conveinent to the train station - which is so nice when you're pulling luggage! The WiFi was so nice to have. The room was very clean. Breakfast was delcious. One of the nice things about the hotel is that it is surrounded by cafes and bars, so you have plenty of places to grab a drink as you end your night.

Excellent hotel, friendly staff and great location. Just a few steps from the main railway station. Room was air conditioned, modern, clean and tidy. Bed was very comfortable and big enough also in a single room. Breakfast was delicious. There is everything you can expect in this pricegroup. I will definitely stay there again when I'm next time in Mainz.
