Really enjoyed three nights at this hotel. Location is excellent, being near the shops, the Opera House, the main railway station, and the U Bahn. The staff are very welcoming and the atmosphere is very friendly. Our room was "just" a standard room but was very spacious, with good lighting (often missing in hotels) and a complimentary minibar with soft drinks and chocolate. We were so pleased to have found this hotel.
The non-smoking business double room was very big - walk in closet, separate toilet and bathroom with a rain shower and separate bath, sitting area with two big couches, a working desk and a good size double bed. The room was very clean and new with modern decor. The hotel restaurant served seasonal cuisine - the asparagus soup was full of flavour, white asparagus with hollandaise sauce was delicious, veal and pork schnitzel were tasty. Prices were reasonable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Offering iced tea and sweets at check-in was welcoming. All in all an unexpectedly premium hotel at a reasonable price.
"just off the beaten path, perfect for getting to downtown Hannover, or biking walking"
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.
I found this to be a friendly , clean and very pleasingly sound-proofed hotel in a good location in suburban Hannover , situated just beside a U-Bahn station providing a quick access to the city centre . I would stay in this hotel again.

The Mecklenheide is a great hotel in Germany , located on the outskirts of Hanover. Guests can reach the city center in …More
I managed to get a very good deal on two nights on Expedia. I was hoping to see the lake from my room but unfortunately I was put in room facing the HDI stadium - fortunately for me there were no games on the weekend I stayed there. I could see the Ferris Wheel on the Schoetzen Platz - that was pretty.
Overall - very pleasant stay.
Staff at the desk were efficient, but not particularly friendly. Room was clean and nice. Had trouble finding the entrance to their parking lot. It's a narrow entrance through shrubs marked with only a small unlit sign.
The Queen's Hotel is situated a short tram ride from Hannover City Centre (tram stop at the end of the approach road to the hotel). It is located right beside Tiergarten, the ancient hunting forest of the Electors of Hannover. It is a beautiful setting and, for the most part, pretty quiet, with only occasional audible background noise from the main road.
The hotel is very clean and well kept in a plush, conservative, 'Art Deco' style. Rooms have quality fitments with a lovely bathroom. The beds are on the hard side of comfortable for most British tastes but I have found that this is a German preference and as most their guests will be German I can't criticize that too much. I have stayed at the Queen's Hotel now on four occasions, three of them over the Christmas holiday. The hotel provides a stunning Christmas Buffet lunch and the restaurant food is of a very high standard.
The staff are wonderful, very polite, very forgiving of my German:-) and all speak good English. All staff at the hotel seem to work very hard and are conscientious. The cleaners do a fantastic job, rooms are spotlessly clean, every day, with everything neatly arranged.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to a visitor to Hannover, especially if you are looking for something in quieter surroundings. The walks around Tiergarten are beautiful at any time of year.
"Convenient hotel away from the hussle and bustle"
Brand-new clean hotel with friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Rooms are sizeable and clean. Breakfast was delicious with options for carnivores and vegetarians as well as sweet-tooth owners. We managed to get an early check-in which we were desperate for before heading to the arena for RW concert.
