I stayed at this hotel during my business trip. I'm glad to have stayed there instead of in Frankfurt itself. The town of Mainz is really lovely. The hotel is nice, clean and the staff is helpful and courteous. I had a non-smoking room, but I have to say there was a smell of smoke - not strong at all but my nose is very sensitive to smoke smell. The room size is excellent and they provide any amenities you need, even if you need slippers and bath robe. I found them very accommodating. The breakfast at the restaurant is delicious, with a big variety. The gym, pool and sauna add relaxation to the stay! The bed comfort was so so. It was kind of bouncy. If there is one issue about this hotel is the internet. The wifi is SLOW, or WAS slow at least during my stay. It was very aggravating.
The city center is cozy with lots of shops, food and drink vendors, and is scenic, etc. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the Mainz Hbf. It's a straight-up walk, but a bit uphill. Honestly, it's a quick though and it's pretty safe even at late night. For sure, it makes it very convenient to get around. The S8 and RE lines go to the FRA airport from the Mainz Hbf station. It's about a 25 min ride or a bit less.
The hotel is literally a few minutes away from the city center. Surely, makes the stay enjoyable when you can just walk down to the city center. There is a residential complex right behind the hotel. Walk behind the hotel as you face the residential buildings, walk toward the left. You'll find the P sign for Parking Garage. Take the elevator all the way down and it will put you on the street level of the city center. Walk straight up in that alley, and you'll be in the city center. Surely convenient. Also, behind the hotel by the residential buildings, you will find a grocery store.
Overall excellent hotel and the location makes you feel in a nice German town.
