Stay at a Van der Valk hotel in Hannover and you are literally a guest of the Van der Valk family. The chain is a family franchise, with every hotel managed by a descendant of the founders, Martinus and Riet Van der Valk.
Where to Find Van der Valk Hotels in Hannover
Van der Valk’s Hannover accommodation is in Hildesheim, a beautiful historic town to the south of the city. With pretty half-timbered buildings, café-lined squares and a riverside location, Hildesheim is an attraction in its own right – but it’s also a good base for visiting Marienburg Castle, one of the biggest historic attractions in the Hannover area.
What to Expect from Van der Valk Accommodation
Van der Valk hotels offer a choice of room types, including Classic, Superior, Twin, Double and Triple Rooms. Rooms feature hypoallergenic bedding and blackout curtains. Every room has free WiFi and a large flatscreen TV. Van der Valk hotels typically feature an in-house restaurant, a bar and lounge, a pool and a well-appointed gym and health centre with sauna. Business travellers will make good use of the 24 hour business centre, and every guest will enjoy the friendly, attentive service provided by the multilingual staff.
Why Book a Hotel in Hannover?
Hannover boasts a long and varied history: its origins as a trading centre date back to at least the Middle Ages, and for over a century the local Dukes of Brunswick-Lüneburg sat on the British throne. Today Hannover is a city of grand historic architecture, scenic parks, and a lively shopping and dining scene.
What to See and Do in Hannover
With so much history to draw on, it’s no wonder that Hannover’s historic buildings and museums are among its main attractions. Follow the Rote Faden walking route to tour them – look out for the Old City Hall, a handsome building in classic Saxon style, and the New City Hall, a spectacular civic palace whose observation gallery offers panoramic views of the city. Top museums and galleries include the Historisches Museum Hannover, the Sprengel Museum of modern art, and the Museum August Kestner.
