Staff was alright - by European standards. Don't expect a warm welcome with small talk, just straight to the point (no doubt there is one or two on shift who were more pleasant).
Room was huge actually; shower facilities sufficient.
Well kept, and warm enough for days which are superbly cold (below 0 degrees)
Free Wi-Fi for half an hour, you need to ask from the desk.
5 euros for 24 hours, speed was fast too - so it wasn't too bad.
About a 5 minute walk from the station. Easy to spot.

Viva Creativo was even more than I expected. It was a cross between a boutique hotel and a bed-and-breakfast. The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful on the weekends and during the week. I stayed Saturday-Tuesday night (4 days) and it was great every day.
Each room had a different decor, and the grounds were amazing. There were fruit trees, at least half a hectare (one acre) of grass, multiple ponds with fish and fountains and full plantings. It was exactly what I wanted in a quiet, middle class/upper middle class safe established Hannover neighborhood. This is perfect for a business traveler like me who wants quiet; or, for a family with or without children.
If you want to walk across the street to a trendy club, then Viva Creativo is not for you. You can jump on the frequent, clean quiet bus for a 4 minute trip to the street car/subway line that takes you directly to the center of Hannover. Or you can walk 12-14 minutes, or borrow one of the hotels dozen free bicycles and ride the 5 minute bike trip yourself. I used the bicycle daily for 4 days, and rode on the bike paths, along the rivers with no car traffic, and explored.
The location of the hotel was very nice. It is just five minutes away from main train station by walking. It is also a safe place, next to police station. The front desk was very helpful. The room was clean and large, beds were comfortable. Bathroom was satisfactory. Housekeeping service was very good. One of the most impressive thing was the breakfast. It was included the price and was very satisfactory. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wifi was free but it was a little bit slow.
