I arrived at the hotel at 12noon, knowing that check-in started at 3pm. Not a problem. Receptionist said that room was ready and that I could have a free upgrade to a quieter room at the rear of the hotel. Fantastic. The room was lovely and clean though I personally prefer hotel rooms to have a tiled or vinyl floor covering. There was no kettle so i bought a cheap one but later in stay saw that they could be provided as well as iron and ironing board. I was also pleasantly surprised to find not only a fridge but also a double hob inside a cupboard. Shame I didn't find this till I was due to check-out so I didn't use this.
The bathroom had a large walk-in shower which suits me better than a bath. Shampoo and shower gel was provided in fixed plastic containers. Towels were changed as and when required.
The hotel was quite a walk away from the centre of Darmstadt but it really didn't take too long to walk. I asked at reception for a map and was given one and clearly showed where the hotel was in respect of the city.
As I was there visiting family, I did not use the restaurant but did use the hotel bar one night. Very helpful and pleasant staff there too.
Overall this hotel was excellent unless you have mobility problems as then the distance would be too far to walk into Darmstadt city itself.

The room looked lovely and welcoming and the bed, pillow and bedding was extremely comfortable. We were there for 3 nights and slept well every night. We had requested a room away from the road and this enabled we had no traffic noise as we prefer to sleep with the window open. The bathroom was more than adequate and soap was provided for shower and sink.
We did take our own kettle and european extension lead and this was used frequently for hot drinks in the morning and at night time. (The only available electric point was halfway up the wall so the extension lead was invaluable and it also enabled us to recharge our mobile phones.)
The hotel was just a five minute walk away from the town centre and ideally situated. It is also quite close to the railway station.
We did not try the breakfast at the hotel, as we met up with family during the day. There was no wifi in the bedroom either, which was a surprise. I believe it was available in the bar area but we chose not to use this facility.
We would stay there again.
