I was very disappointed with this hotel for the price I paid. I would have felt better if I’d only paid 60€ a night, but not 104€. The ONLY good thing about this hotel was the breakfast buffet we paid for, with both hot and cold options. The old-fashioned key for the room was charming, but there were no extra locks on the door at all and I did not feel safe. The room was supposed to be non-smoking, but they clearly allow either because it reeked of stale cigarettes and there was even an ashtray and complimentary matches in the room, instead of the expected tea station. The water was hot, but the bathtub took too long to fill so shower… but it was broken. You had to hang on to a knob and pull it out but it still turned off every 20 seconds or so. I would have been more comfortable staying in a pop-up camper! We kept the window open all night but it was still too warm, and the extra pillows I had requested and needed for heartburn had to be scavenged, due to the hotel being “completely booked.” I’m also glad we packed our own toiletries because the “complimentary” ones were bolted to the wall and the dispensers weren’t even clean. We couldn’t wait to get out of there and would never stay there again. The only reason I chose it in the first place was its location juxtaposition close to both a metro stop and the Stuttgart Messe convention center. I will not stay here again, and will seriously reconsider before choosing any other branch of “Golden Leaf.”

Stayed for one night to catch my flight in the morning. Rooms are plain, just simple to sleep one night. I did expect little more but it did serve the purpose. Receptionist are not very accommodating, they were "just doing their job". When I arrived, I asked about booking a taxi for tomorrow morning and they convinced me that it's not necessary as they can get them in a few minutes. When I was checking out and asked for taxi, phones were broken and they told me that I'll have to wait 30 minutes at least as their is a fair and taxis are busy. I was fuming as I was afraid to miss my flight but they just said that they are sorry and there is nothing they can do. On the other hand restaurant inside hotel was excellent. Fist class! Great food, fast service and accommodating people. I loved evening meal and buffet breakfast.

I stayed here for 4 nights . It is a quiet hotel . One restaurant . Food is good and breakfast very good . 24x7 coffee and sometimes fruits and cold drink at reception . Just one towel and one hand towel and a feet towel. Clean . Bed is not very comfortable . Just one pillow . It was June and quite warm . No air conditioner in the room . Have to borrow low wattage fans from reception . Shower is good . 100 year old key style . No good eating places nearby neither shopping nor sight seeing .

10 minutes from the airport terminal and the Messe. Very nice hotel, rooms well furnished and clean. Very friendly check in and restaurant staff. Quick check in and check out. Will stay here again when i next visit

Prior to our arrival we communicated that we would arrive early because we had to attend a wedding. We were promised that they would do their best to accomodate early check in. Well, they did certainly NOT. The man at the reception was beyond arrogant and made it very clear that he would not do his best. There was no room available, he could not check with anybody and he had no idea when a room would become available. When I insisted that he would check the note to my booking he said "yeah I see, but it doesn't mean anything". Finally we went out for lunch while waiting and asked if he could give us a ring when the room was ready. He promised to call us but of course he did not. When we got back half an hour later, and there was another man at the reception desk, it seemed that the room was long ready. About the room: it was cheap so we didn't have high expectations. But the room was small and had a terrible musty smell. The carpet was so filthy that I didn't dare to walk around bare feet. It was just impossible to control the shower and the hairdryer worked for no more than 30 seconds (and so did the one that I got from reception). I can't say anything about breakfast because needless to say, we left as soon as we could. Never again

A perfect hotel to be close to the airport (15 euros) and Hohenheim University (2.4 euros). It has a superb breakfast managed by a young and attentive woman. In a quiet environment people read or talk preparing their day while enjoying the food and coffee. Comfortable rooms with spacey bathroom, Full internet service to work in the room as in your office. At 5 minute walk to the train station and bus stop to take you to the city center or the university. The friendly bar to enjoy a German beer and discuss brands and flavors.

Good hotel, friendly staff, perfect choice for one or more nights. Quiet and clean, nice and simple. We did not have breakfast in the hotel but we were asked if we would like to. Would stay again in the future.

This hotel is like a girl who is almost hot. You may stick around for couple of nights but you don't want a long term relationship. For: - big underground parking lot - good location, friendly service - very good and free WiFi Against: - They charge 4 EUR even for a bottle of water which is normally free in any other hotel. How mean is that? - They failed to fix the elevator for a month or so - The room, the breakfast and the TV set all are ok, buta little bit dissapointing. Almost hot, see what I mean? All in all the total rating is ALMOST 4.

I haven t been in a worst place, and I have travel a lot in lot of countries and not im Palace Hotel. I am very sad for the employee at the reception of this hotel, who are nice but they cannot do miracle. First of all, it is not well indicated at the airport and 10 min (16 Euros) by Taxi. I don t know if there is a shuttle. Hotel is little bit old style and can be refreshed, but it is not an issue and origin of my disapointment. The problem was when I enter in the room, it was smelling like hell the cigarets. But at such level that my eyes was crying and I got problem to breath. I ask to reception another room, not possible fully book ( but I have seen later other customer arriving for check in). In fact it seems all room where like that , as other french guest told me having same issue and explaining what will be next step. As announced by the guy in the lift, someone arrives in the room with the same product as for toillets.... Great it was covering the smell of cigarets but such quantity was needed that the situation was even worst Only solution open the window at 23h and wait one hour, with 1 degree outside..... I really cannot understand why cleaning woman doesn t open the window, amazing specially that hotel is not so cheap. And it is not first tine as they apply immediately the deodorant for toillets Next time I will take another one, and even for a smoker I guess it won t be a good experience

Was staying here on business as I was at an expo in Messe. Shall we start with the location? Having Airport & Messe implies it is close, which it is, to an extent. You can't walk from the airport or Messe like many of the other hotels which are right next to both. It is a 10 minute taxi ride away with at least 15/20 euros each way. (Factor this into your time and budget) The hotel itself is in a dodgy looking industrial complex. I never left the hotel, partly because there is nothing near it and partly by the time I got back, I just wanted to go bed. Nice segue into the rooms. Rooms are basically out of date and worn. Thin, discoloured carpets, scratches on the corner of the wood work, etc. Plus Points Shower was powerful and there were a good number of hangers in the cupboard. Negative points the drains didn't drain that fast and out of 4 trouser hangers one 1 has enough grip to hold trousers. Also If your of average height the bottom of your trousers will drag on the bottom of the wardrobe. Normally OK but in both rooms I had were caked in dust. Other bad points of the rooms are the pillows aren't worth having, they were so soft and thin your head hits the mattress. The mattress was really hard as well. I hardly slept the entire week. Got a better sleep on the plane home. Rooms were also really warm with no cooling other than opening the large window, which lets the motorway noise in. The last disclaimer is they put you in a smoking room automatically. If you have a sense of smell and want a room that smells less horrible you have to state this when you book. After one night I asked and they had an available none smoking room which they swapped me to. <--- Look a good point. Food! Breakfast was an acceptable mix of food, I wasn't paying so can't comment on prices. Evening food had an OK. Ate there once and ate at different hotels near Messe every other night. Main issue was they had an issue charging it to our rooms. Lucky the person I was with is fluent German, but after 5 minutes of them moaning and complaining they finally let us charge it to our room. (Considering every other hotel are more than happy to charge to room instead of taking money, we found this odd) The last thing was out of 2 lifts one was broken all week. Can't really hold that against them its probably the age of the building and if they can't afford to keep rooms clean, then lift maintenance is probably low on their list. I used the stairs as it was quicker than the lifts anyway.
