The Nestor is a comfortable, modern hotel within a restored historic building. Its location is in the heart of Ludwigsburg's charming old city center, with lots of dining and shopping options. There is a tree-lined pedestrian path right out the door, and a large park nearby. Only a few blocks away is Ludwigsburg's beautiful Residential Palace and its surrounding gardens.
Comfortable, modern rooms with all the amenities. A definite step up from the local business hotels. It's located some distance from the center of Ludwigsburg, which means you need a car to visit the downtown area, but unlike the downtown hotels it is quiet and parking is convenient. The hotel is on the park grounds, adjacent to the castle and near the equestrian center. The setting is beautiful and the castle is impressive. The hotel breakfast buffet is excellent, and there is a good restaurant next to the hotel. But, you need a car to get to town for shopping and other services.
We stayed in 2 rooms of this Ludwigsberg hotel for 4 nights in mid-December when we were visiting Stuttgart (2 adults, 2 teenagers). It is a 15 minute local train ride from Stuttgart, and we chose it as a way of being out of the main city, but still with good access. The rooms were apparently fully refurbished in summer 2014, and it shows. The rooms and bathrooms are extremely clean with all we needed. Spacious enough for us all without feeling as though we were tripping over each other. Breakfast was very good, with plenty of choice for everyone - meats and cheeses, selection of cereals, pastries and croissants, several different breads and rolls, various condiments, a couple of hot (egg, sausage, bacon, baked beans), fresh fruit & fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, juices, hot drinks. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful. Wifi was excellent too. Easy walking distance to main shopping area and Christmas market (which we liked better than Stuttgart - more of a local feel and great atmosphere), and easy walk to train.

Located in a calm side street, this 3-star hotel in Ludwigsburg , near Stuttgart, is only minutes away from the lively city …More
Hotel is centrally located in quiet neighborhood. Nice breakfast, cooked to order. Food for dining at restaurant was delicious. Staff was very helpful, and we had a guest in wheelchair, and they went out of their way to please us. Huge room by European standards. The only thing negative was the parking which was extremely small and tight, but it was free!!! Overall, we would recommend this hotel to any person/family. Very good!
Spacious modern room, very clean, very friendly staff, convenient parking for only 3 Euros. We left too early in the morning to try the breakfast. Right next to a film school, at night very pretty lighted buildings. We arrived in Stuttgart by train and rented a car to go to the Mercedes and Porsche museums on a tight schedule. This hotel was a good choice in the area for the price--lower cost than staying in Stuttgart. Very easy to drive back to Stuttgart's main train station to return the car and leave town.
The hotel needs some work...carpets need replacing. The Bier Garten needs some decluttering and cleaning.
But the Staff was excellent..and pretty much made up for any short comings to me.
I was not looking for a luxury hotel, but a place to sleep. This provided it. And well. I would, however, caution against summer visits utilizing this hotel unless you don't mind heat. No AC.
North of Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg's claim to fame is its Ludwigsburg Palace. It is Germany's largest Baroque castle. Home to Duke Eberhard Ludwig von Württemberg in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, the ruler also built a hunting-and-pleasure palace, Favorit, as well as the Seeschloss. Today, visitors flock to the city to tour the insides and grounds.
