Mercure Hotel Stuttgart City Center4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed in room 9 located on the first floor just behind reception desk. Room was fine, if a bit small. But window faces directly on to the street so there's no privacy unless you keep curtains drawn. It's ok if all you do is sleep in the room. Otherwise, a good hotel, good location. I'd stay there again.
We liked that we could easily walk to the train station which easily took us everywhere we wanted to go, königstrasse and the Porsche and Mercedes museums. The hotel even had a three day pass we bought for a fair price for unlimited public transportation. Overall very helpful and nice place to stay.
We've stayed there several times before--it's a consistent, reliable hotel. A five minute tram ride from the main station..you can even walk although it's a bit uphill. Rooms are comfortable, very up to date. Breakfast is very good. Only negative is that there are not places right near for dinner but a quick tram ride downtown gives you all of the possibilities. The hotel dinner is actually quite nice if you do stay in.
Staff was friendly and competent. Nice layout. New building. Five-minute walk to a tram station; three stops to the main train station. Nice, but expensive restaurant. Free Internet using lobby's computer.
hotel is walking distance from city center. If you prefer you can go by metro/subway (5 min walk). Breakfest is quite expensive. Wi-fi was free of charge but the quality in the room was not good.
Have stayed there approx 5 times; close to downtown (2 stops on U15 tram from main station--maybe 3 minute ride). New, modern hotel; nice sized rooms; staff ultra friendly; breakfast, while pricey, is well worth it. Good value, especially on weekends.
Best part: They have air conditioning. This is very much required in the July (at least Jul 2010). Without air-conditioning, the windows will have to be kept open for the "cool" air and it is so noisy. Worst part: No free internet. Even for A-club members. There is one very slow computer in the lobby that has internet but that was it. Charge is either 9 euros/day or there is a 3 euros/hour. I used the second one and it was fast enough for a video chat. Good parts: Staff is friendly and know good English. The room including the bathroom was maintained in an excellent condition. The hotel is close to Stuttgart city center (Stuttgart Hbf). Actually it is closer to a station called Turlenstrasse from where it is easier to go to the Hbf through a train rather than the 1km direct walk from the hotel to the hbf. Bad parts: No fridge inside room. Bad for people who want to have their water/drinks slightly cold. No iron box which I found missing as I was going to attend a conference My hotel stay was restricted to the nights and the early mornings and I was out the rest of the day. I didnt book with the breakfast and it was around 17 euros. (I had a decent breakfast at a nearby bakery for around 4 or 5 euros).
