I travel frequently for work, so I am always on the lookout for nice hotels that cater to business clientele. Fortunately, this hotel checks almost all of the boxes for me.
This hotel is a bit difficult to access by car using GPS due its placement near the tram tracks, but that is a minimal complaint because you ARE near the tram tracks. Literally, the U1 tram that takes you into Stuttgart..the station is right in front of the hotel. Also, you can walk to fine dining, bakery, drug store, ATM, Norma's, bars in 10-15 minutes. Parking garages are next to the property as well.
The lobby is spacious and you are immediately greeted by very friendly, multilingual reception desk. As an English speaker who understands very little German, this was very helpful. I was checked in less than 10 minutes, given recommendations for food, and a map of Stuttgart and Fellbach. The day after I checked in, I was given excellent directions to the Porsche Museum using public transportation. Very efficient, very friendly service. In the lobby area, also, is the hotel bar which was not open on the weekends....huh? Why would a hotel bar NOT be open on the weekends? When someone is traveling internationally, it is a treat to have a nice hotel restaurant or cafe, in case you do not want to go back out for food. I think this is a huge missed opportunity and management should reconsider their options.
The room was a bit small, however it met my needs. I had a single bed, small loveseat sofa and a desk in the room. The room was clean, but a bit dusty. When you enter the room, there was a cabinet for the safe, mini fridge, and a place to hang clothes. The bathroom was a nice size and very clean.
The breakfast buffet was very good. There was an assortment of yogurts, granola, muesli and dried fruits. In addition, there were scrambled eggs, sausages and an assortment of meat, cheese, breads and cereals. As soon as you sat at a table, you were provided your own carafe of delicious coffee and cream. Juice and water were available on the buffet.
Overall, great stay at a good value. I will return. less

Dear EndaTravel, thank you very much for your detailed feedback and we value your time taken for this. We love to read, that you had a great time with us - though our hotelbar offers no meals and is closed on weekends. It is an economical decision we had to make and we would decide differently, if we had much more guests like you, who would use restaurant and hotelbar on weekends.
Despite this, we dearly hope to welcome you back and again convince in all other areas of our hotel. Until then, we remain with kind regards.
