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.
