I stayed here a few days before starting my study abroad program. It was a nice quiet place to relax and get used to another time zone. All the rooms are gorgeous, everything was super clean, and the couple that owns the place are very sweet and helpful. For an American student, the price was very good, though be aware,... More

If you are an open minded person, this hotel is perfect for you, because it is a bit different from normal hotels. The decoration is quite unusual, but I liked it. The rooms and the bathrooms are very clean and the owners are really nice people, they do anything to help you.

Don't let the modest surroundings and slightly quirky looking place deter you. The owners are kind and friendly and have created something quite unique. If you like sterile rooms with creature comforts, then this is not the place for you. It is in an industrial area, and seems a bit lackluster, but is safe and clean. The rooms are named... More

Do not let the modest price and the location right next to the prostitutes fool you. This hotel is beautiful and peaceful. It is a little urban treasure box. Everything here is hand crafted. Everything here is art. The owners are lovely people. They have clearly put their hearts into this place. I chose it because it was close to... More

What a fun and interesting place. I was a bit scared and horrified when I walked up to the building and saw what appeared to be a junk yard. Upon closer inspection, I found a unique and funky environment with a kind family who runs the operation. My flat was clean and quiet and had everything I needed. I loved... More

We stayed here in early January. Low season in Kassel. The couple who run this place were very hospitable and attentive. We had the luck of staying in the apartment, with its handpainted wallpaper and retro artefacts. Very 50s and characterful. Like stepping into another world quite removed from the homogenous ikea reality of most modest hotels/accommodations. It was a... More

I stayed here with my family for 2 nights, and we were treated like royalty. Owners are lovely people, very friendly. The motel is fantastic -- every room different but all spacious, creatively decorated and very comfortable. We especially appreciate the wonderful sitting chairs in each room -- unusual for our experience in Europe. Outside doesn't look like much of... More
