“Contradicting some absurdly negative reviews”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

I stayed two nights here in November. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room good-sized, modern, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. What other reviewers have sometimes written is total nonsense. It has admittedly all been recently refurbished but I would hate people to be put off by people writing rubbish: they have not even got their facts right - I paid €72 for as good a room as I have found anywhere else in Germany. And of course the location in the heart of the Old Town is perfect.

Room Tip: I had a so-called single/confort room, which I can highly recommend.

Reception at the hotel was nice. Room had the charm of a youth hostel. Was clean but cold. Heating was turned off. Took over two hours to get warm. Bed was creaky but ok. Breakfast was basic. Definitely overpriced for what you get. I would not stay again. Sorry to say that.

Thank you for providing feedback about your recent stay. We apologize that you did not recognize the value in your visit. We have recently completed a full-scale renovation in guest rooms, hallways, lobby, and breakfast area. We installed a modern heating system that allows us to provide a comfortable environment and are sorry that you have been unable to recognize that. Our breakfast includes free of charge fresh cooked eggs any style you like, coffee house coffee like cappuccino or café late, to name a few.

Horrible hotel for high price!!! I absolutely agree with " Noscreep" who wrote long review about this place. Rooms are small and bathrooms even smaller! No staff around hotel after 10pm. Inside hotel looks like hostel! I have stayed in hostels around the world for €50-60 a night in better rooms, and in hotel adler around €100-130 and hostels are much better! Avoid this place!

Dear Competion:

If you have such much trouble with our renovation, the new furniture, new bath rooms, new ammenities like rain shower heads and our new LED TV's, why do you not start a renovation on your own?

We performed our renovation during the month of December 2012 and January 2013.

Thank you for letting us know how despicable competition can be.

A poor excuse for a hotel. We were obliged to stay at this poor excuse for a hotel as my son was playing in a tennis tournament nearby and this was the only hotel within walking distance. It is hard to know where to start with all the problems with this hotel. I am not the only one who felt this way, as many other participants who stayed there complained to the organisers of the tournament and changed hotels when they could, as did I at the first possible opportunity.

Firstly, the whole hotel is depressing, run down and down right unappealing. It has no charm or character whatsoever, surprising for a hotel located in such a gorgeous old town. To say that the hotel has seen better days is an understatement The single rooms resembled a monks cell in a monastery - there was no decoration or effort to make the room look attractive. Everything in the room was broken chipped and shabby. The double room where my son and his friend stayed was only slight larger with two single beds pushed together. There was the tiniest space around the beds to squeeze around. Do not believe the photos on the hotel website - they bear no resemblence to reality. Wifi internet was promised, and worked intermittently for the first couple of days - but then broke down and no attempt was made to fix it.

However, the most unpleasant aspect of our whole stay was the woman who ran the place. One could not meet a nastier person in the "hospitality" industry. She snarled at every guest - shouted at two boys when they innocently requested something at breakfast. She also shouted at my son on the phone when she called to see if we were continuing our stay there. As I was busy trying to find another hotel at the time, he was not sure and she was extremely rude to him. We left a charger for a computer behind and when we returned to find it - she could not possibly have been more unpleasant.

One other aspect of this hotel - at night all the hotel staff go home at around 8 p.m. and lock the guests in for the night. There is absolutely no staff around to call on if you have a problem of any kind. Not only is this dangerous - but downright unacceptable.

i have stayed at many hotels around the world - and this is by far the worst one I have ever experienced. If you have to come to Waiblingen for any reason (and it is an absolutely picturesque beautiful town) - make sure you stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: there are no good rooms at this hotel

Thank you for taking the time to write a large review.

In direct response to this review we would like to set the record straight.

The Hotel Adler in Waiblingen is a traditional Hotel with a long history and an impressive list of guests. Altough any guest at the Hotel Adler is special to us, an uncounted number of celebrities did select the Hotel Adler. We like to encourage any guest to ask for the "Guest Book" to see who else stayed at the Hotel.

However, the Hotel Adler enforces specific rules and restrictions that apply to all guests in an effort to ensure that all guests enjoy a pleasant stay.

Unfortunatly, these guests did not comply to our minimum set of rules. After receiving several complains from other guests about behaviour, noise level and attitude of these guests, demolishing an expensive shower door, trying to hack into the wireless routers - the Hotel Adler provides 3 Wifi Networks free of charge, a/b, g and n, camouflaging their internet capable devices mac address in order to bypass the mac address block and redirect ports, as well as many other unfriendly activities, there was not much patience left for these guests.

Our pictures on our web site are only a couple of month old, and our rooms are being daily maintaned and cleaned.

We understand that these "guests" are not the right guests for our Hotel and don't even care about their fellow guests. Altough it is not our responsibility to change behaviour and attitude of such guests, we politely ask them to be kind enough to select another hotel in the future.

In our effort to provide for each and every guest a pleasant stay, we look forward to welcome any guests who appreciate our Hotel, service and ammenities.
