Recent guest reviews
I stayed for 3 nights at this hotel for business and really enjoyed my time here. The room was clean and the breakfast offered a great variety of food. The only downside is that it is quite far away from the city center, so it is better to have a car if you are planning to stay there. I recommend this hotel and will stay again there if I ever come back to Saarbrücken.
Probably one of the best places I’ve been staying lately. Clean, neat, cozy, quite, close to everything that is around, easily accessible. The staff is very professional, attentive to very little detail.
Stopped overnight on way back to UK Room lovely and large - it was very hot as no airconditioning The buffet in the evening was excellent and plentiful. Sat in patio area with a drink. Breakfast was a bit full and two groups were leaving but very good value
Where can I start? I loved the place. Staff cannot do enough for you. I had emailed the hotel prior to our arrival and informed them that we might get to the hotel earlier than check in time. We would have been travelling over night and could it be possible to have the room around 1pm. We managed to get to Saarbrucken at 9.30 am and I went into the hotel to let them know we were here, not expecting the room to be ready at all. It was!! It made my day because we had been awake from 6:30 am Friday morning. So top marks for that. Our room was on the ground floor and very spacious. It was a themed room of the sea which was lovely. The bed was comfortable and the room was immaculately clean. It was also very quiet too. We had a look around the hotel before going into Saarbrucken centre. There was a good sized pool with loungers around it. The bar area was cosy and clean. The restaurant side was wonderful, lovely colour schemes. There was a patio outside the restaurant which looked wonderful. Breakfast was really good. If you wanted a cooked breakfast there was that available. Some one even requested an omlette, which looked nice. We stuck to the continental buffet and treated ourselves to smoked salmon daily (expensive in Britain) and other things off the buffet. The hotel itself is situated in Rodenhof and there are regular buses to the city centre. If ask for the Saarland card bus travel is free. We ended up walking most days because the weather was nice. It took us around 30 minutes. We ended up using taxis to get back late at night and they cost around 8 euros from the train station. All in all a fantastic three days and fab start to our tour of Germany.
We stopped off at this hotel for one night en route eastwards. The rooms were spacious and clean, with lovely large windows that let in a lot of light. While not particularly large, the breakfast buffet was perfectly adequate, with a decent selection of fruits, breads, and pastries. However, it's the little things that were slightly lacking - most notably the air conditioning in the bedrooms. While we were provided with a fan, this really didn't do much against the stifling summer heat.
My stay here was unplanned. The June weather was warm and I was surprised to find rooms had no air-conditioning despite the status of the hotel. I was given a two room suite and was shown up to the room. I found the furniture to be dated as was the rest of the hotel. The bathroom was the semi highlight but the shower temperature control was non existent. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were flat. The sofa was not comfortable at all. The staff were very nice, their English was excellent. Grounds and location were beautiful. On-site restaurant is a Micheline Star rated which drives up prices for all the eating locations. I think the target audience is a bit old the my mid 40 something group I am in.
Instead of the quiet room I had asked for, I got a room above the day room of the personnel, towards the parking lots and the marshalling yard of the main station of Saarbrücken. They also have the by far tiniest bathroom I ever saw in my life. You have to twist yourself around the WC in order to enter into the tiny shower cabin. And when soaping yourself you are cutting off the shower spray as the water mixer tap is in always the way. I got a large salad from the restaurant. It was not very elaborate nor fresh, came but drowned in rather cheaply tasting balsamico. It was served quite negligently, with the least effort.
OK, this hotel looks a little old-fashioned - apart from the dining room, which has had a really unfortunate "trendy" refurbishment (silver wallpaper, furry lightshades with an interesting fake antler design, etc...). But it's comfortable and completely clean. Receptionist staff very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Really nice swimming pool in the basement. It's not in the city centre but only about a 15 minute walk away in a quiet area.
It was the second visit from me after some years. Normally I'm not a fan of Best western hotels. But here it is different. Higher standard than in other Best Western hotels. Great beds, big clean rooms and a really great service..the staff also in the restaurant is very friendly ... football pay TV evenings are possible ... and the food in the restaurant was delicious ... unfortunately this visit I had no time to use the spa area ... in my memory it is very good ... so, next time in Saarbrücken we'll see us again ... I forgot ... it is a very quite hotel ...thanks
i have been there several times, but this time, a bit disappointed. Half of the lights didn't work in the room, bathroom was not clean. Food soso, breakfast quite ok. Swimming pool and sauna were ok. Not sure if i will go back
