This hotel has all the charm of a small inn and provides excellent service. The restaurant is top notch(a little pricey) and a good example of the food of this region. The staff didn't speak a lot of English but were willing to try to accommodate and help in any way. If you have a car, this is the place to stay. You are 10 min from Ludwigsburg and 10 min from the Autobahn. You can walk to the S-Bahn station if you prefer. We were 25 min from Stuttgart airport and traveled all over using this as our base. Heidelberg is 1 hr away, and there are lots of sites in between. Take water bottles and snacks with you and definitely need a GPS in English to get to places and back.
Pros: This was very clean and the staff was accommodating. We had a parking garage, breakfast, internet, and close to motorways, cities and the airport.
Cons: It would have been nice to have a list of recommended restaurants for the area. We felt a little lost trying to find something good close by.
Location: Ludwigsburg is a lovely city, for their palace and Christmas Market. The Porsche Museum is 10 minutes away, Heidelberg and Stuttgart were great too.
