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
Stayed here for 2,5 weeks, Although in planned only 1,5 week. It was no problem staying longer. When i arrived i was welcomed with a free drink by a friendly staff The hotel is located outside the centre . The room was big and clean The breakfast was very good The restaurant offers a very good meal i enjoyed their steaks very much
I stayed in this hotel for only 4 nights but nevertheless it was a wonderful stay. The staff at the reception and at the breakfast hall were all very nice, accommodating and helpful. This is despite the fact that most of the staff attending in the restaurant don't speak much English, but nonetheless they're doing their best to make guests well attended to. Aside from being professional, the staff at the reception were extra friendly and warm. As for me, since I had a delayed baggage (my checked luggage only showed up a day before my hotel checkout), the receptionists really tried their best to ease my burden. They provided me with my small requests and also pointed me to the right department store (read: affordable merchandise) where to buy the urgent bare essentials.
On my business trip through Southern Germany I also stayed at the Best Western Victor´s Residenz in Saarbrücken. The hotel is conveniently located near the Autobahn once you figure out you have to drive by the "Einfahrt verboten" sign warning that you are only supposed to go there when you live there. In total this is a nice hotel - I stayed in room 119 and paid around 120 EUR parking included (covered parking available and charged extra). Unfortunately I had a pretty bad night in the hotel because the room I had is placed above the breakfast room. And the service people responsible for breakfast do not care about the sleep other people have. So at 4:45 I woke up by loud laughter and the sound of crashing plates on tables. The breakfast room windows and doors were all open and so this ended my sleep in this hotel. No chance to sleep with this noise and I am usually not that picky about noises. But the noise of plates crashing against each other is a sound that really keeps you awake. So I think I can recommend the hotel... but make sure you get a room as far as possible away from the breakfast room. What I liked + quiet location of the hotel though near the highway + large covered parking (paid) + friendly staff + large rooms + nice bar + Reasonable pricing + clean What I didn´t like - very noisy and the noise is caused by service staff - WiFi slow and bumpy - Bar service personal slow and not very friendly - No signs how to find the hotel entrance from the covered parking - Stairs between covered parking and elevators - booked a double room but got a single room
Arrived around 20:30 and the night check in staff did not seems to care much we had to ask questions example Breakfast times /WIFI info/Check out times, we felt they did not care much for their positions and it made the first impression not a good one Room was good especially the BOGNER shower and bath soap. we ordered a cot for our child it was waiting in our room - WIFI coverage was excellent our baby phone worked fine with the WIFI Then we went to the bar for a drink service was OK until some kitchen / hotel staff all finished their shifts congregated in the small bar. As a customer you don't want to hear the staff complaining about work / lives and the Bar person paid little attention to us after this I hadto get his attention twice to order drinks
