This is basic hotel built perhaps in 1970’s. Apart from flat TV all furniture look old but still well maintained. Choice of food for breakfast was basic too: eggs, sausages, cereals, bread/rolls and butter, juice, coffee or tea, yogurt, cheese. The reception in this hotel opens in the morning and closes in the evening.

The room was OK but the bathroom was small. The breakfast was exceptionally rich. The hotel is located not far from Berliner Platz where one can take a bus in whatever direction one wishes. Also, it is walking distance from the town center.

I arrived at this hotel a few days after heavy rains flooded the neighborhood, so there were problems to deal with upon arrival which guests were not warned about. First, the hot water did not get hot unless you let the faucet run anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes. I am not exaggerating. The TV didn't work. I was told both of those problems were due to the flooding. The wifi was ridiculous, every 30 minutes it cuts off so you have to sign in again. It was noisy and hot. There's no AC so i had to leave the windows open and i was on the loud street side of the building. That said, i found the breakfast and the room very satisfying, but the experience as a whole was disappointing and they did not offer any consolation after all that.

It is not the worst hotel I've been in but... It was warm, and they have no aircon... Opening windows lets the noise of the 4/5 lane road outside in. This noise starts at 05.30 and doesn't stop until late. So it was either sweat in a hot room or listen to heavy traffic. The room itself was small and ill equipped, from the poor shower to the small storage space, no bar, no iron, water temperature was difficult to regulate, opening a window blocked the backroom door, opening the window in the bathroom meant the whole street could see you shower. The hotel car park is also tiny and badly laid out, it's also across the 4/5 lane road from the hotel.

We stayed here for a few days and were very pleased. Our double room at the front of the hotel was spacious, well maintained and very clean. Although near a road junction noise from the street was minimal as the windows were effectively triple glazed. There is free wi-fi albeit somewhat feeble. And there are a hand-full of parking places at the rear of the hotel. The staff were friendly and happy to help in English. The buffet breakfast was excellent both the breadth of choice and quality. It set us up for the rest of the day and served early enough for business travelers and late enough to be relaxing (I.e. 6.30 to 10.00 in the week). The location is great for Giessen centre. Across the road is the Dachcafe with views from the 12th floor restaurant and even better views from the open air 13th floor cafe bar. The theatre is a few minutes further away and the wonderful Botanic Gardens about 10 minutes walk. There are lots of cafes and restaurants in the nearby pedestrianised central area. Overall a good option at a reasonable price.

The only thing its not great here is very old rooms and an elevator from 1959. that needs few minutes to get to 3rd floor. All other things are more than ok. Great breakfast, very nice personal working here. Be carefull about parking in front of hotel, if you stay too long you get a ticket!! Park behind a hotel if possible.

I was visiting Giessen on business for a weekend and was booked in by my company at this hotel. I have to say I was disappointed in the establishment. My room was minuscule. I compared it to another single room and realized that all rooms are completely different sizes even though they're the same price. Also, the rooms are in dire need of soundproofing. I could easily hear conversations had in rooms across the hall from mine. There also wasn't much variety for breakfast the next morning. On the bright side, the staff were very polite and helpful. They answered all questions and spoke English quite well. While checking out, we were even offered bottled water for our return trip.

Business trip brought us here for 4 nights. During the whole stay there was a group of students who are football team players "renting" this place. During the whole stay it was noisy and loud, with consistent stomping and loud music playing every night, sometimes at day times as well. We required to have the room changed and it was about the same. A lady was nice enough to provide info and had our room changed. However this "hotel"(?) will have no one on staff after 9pm, so if you come in later/check-in later or something happens at night time, there will be no one there assisting you! We had a late check-in for first night, arriving at 10:40 pm. There was a note attached to the gate saying we should contact a no. or asked the nearby restaurant which was closed already. We were international travelers and had no access to cellphone. Were it not for the kind texi driver calling and helping us, we would be left in the middle of dark night, not knowing what to do. The first room we came in was so depressing and totally not functional. I couldn't even stay in the room, had to get out other than time for sleep/rest. The 2nd room was better. I wouldn't recommend this place.

This small, unpretentious hotel was better than I expected. After the super efficient train from Frankfurt, the hotel was human in scale and character. The receptionists were friendly and helpful, the room - a double with its own sitting room and a comfortable bed - was quiet and comfortable. It is within walking distance of everything in the town. The nearby Dach cafe is worth a visit for the 13th floor view and exotic cocktails, but the local food in the pubs is excellent - hearty winter fare to fill the corners in Alt Giessen. I'd stay there again.

Giessen is a major university town with some 30,000 students in a population of 80,000 and the hotel had the 80s feel of someplace dedicated to visiting parents. Futon-like chair, old style TV, etc. It has the standard small German bathroom with square shower, etc., and a door with key lock not card lock. evetyone here, however, seemed businessmna, especially at the typically hearty breakfast, where they did not have stilles mineralwasser, the first breakfast buffet i encountered in a week of travels around thr country that didn't. Staff is friendly enough, but take note, the hotel is on a very busy square, so make sure you ask for a quiet room at the back. My room was quiet and spacious. The hotel is right near the Dach Cafe which is great for Kafee und Kuchen, and has a view of the city from twelve floors up.
